Shop the Season of Cheer: Your Downtown Gift Guide

Whether you're searching for a perfect and unique surprise or want to give the gift of local this year, use our Downtown Gift Guide to find the right option for anyone on your list. Here are ten Downtown gift ideas from the guide found at some of our favorite Heart of Bellevue shops:

Bellevue Coordinate Pillows from Hedge & Vine

For double the benefits, spend your dollar at local vendors like Hedge & Vine and brighten up your lounge space with original, decorative pillows woven with Bellevue sentiments that spread love from the Heart of Bellevue community to your couch cushions! Check out seasonal candles, kitchenwares, and decor items that make fantastic gifts, plus you can even pick up a bottle of wine to go with! 

Bellevue Magnet Pack from Kate’s Magnets

Recycled bottle caps turned into expressive magnets? Name a better eco-friendly bauble! Needless to say, we are always geared up to rep the Eastside with pride, and the specially designed Bellevue bundle is no exception! Maximize your bargain deal and choose two packs to qualify for free shipping on your order - there are oodles of options to choose from, even one with clever quarantine graphics!

Holiday Gift Boxes from Belle Pastry

Send your season’s greetings with sugar, spice and everything nice - plus a little something extra!  Each package includes an assortment of fresh treats baked daily by Belle Pastry’s Parisian pastry chef. Select the Christmas Breakfast Box for a sampling of sweet and savory flavors to kick off the morning! Complete with decorative ribbon, these bundles are a stellar choice for anyone who deserves something scrumptious!

“Nordic” Air Max 90 sneakers from Urbanity

‘Tis the season for sneakerheads young and old! Check out these vivid red and green kicks, with enough pizazz and holiday flair to rival the sugar plums that dance in your fever dreams. Plus, during the month of December, Urbanity offers a 10% discount on all purchases for every non-perishable food donation, which directly supports FamilyWorks, a local nonprofit that connects neighbors and families to resources in the community.

Local Gift Baskets from Bellevue Farmer’s Market

Give the gift of local this year with a curated selection from the Bellevue Farmers Market. Choose from two options featuring a selection of locally-produced products, including Bow Hill’s blueberry jam, sweets from Pete’s Toffee and handcrafted salami from Salt Blade. Order the baskets online for a quick and easy gift, or head down to the Third Saturday Market on December 19 for a bit of outdoor shopping yourself!

Heart State Ornament from Paper Source

No matter how near or far, your loved one will be reminded that no amount of distance can stand between all the joy and happiness you share. Keep each other close at heart and comforted with this precious ornament, carved out of corkboard in the shape of the continental U.S. with two heart-shaped pins to tag your respective cities! Plus, they have all the wrapping materials you'll ever need!

Stocking Stuffers at Wee Tots Children’s Store

Grab your stockings and swing by Wee Tots in Old Bellevue to redeem 20% off all of the stocking stuffers you can fit inside! We recommend plush stuffed animals and gizmos for bathtime for the wee ones in your life or for that expectant mother you need to check off your list. Load up your sleigh until Dec. 24 to take advantage of all the perks, not to mention convenient complimentary gift wrapping by request!

Culinary Workshops & Classes at Whisk

Dust off your apron and prepare to be whisked away on an adventure your tastebuds will never forget! Sign up for a cooking intensive taught by seasoned pros guiding you through delicious recipes and techniques. Satisfy your travel cravings with lessons for holiday French macarons or croissants! It's the perfect experience to be shared with someone as a gift, whether in person or online!

Scarves for Every Occasion from Jarbo

Check your list twice and cross off a few more names with an outrageous deal on scarves, now marked down $100 through Saturday. Bundle up in style with these irresistibly cozy gifts and enter promotion code “SCARFGIFT” at checkout to redeem the offer. While we may be partial to creamy cashmere blends for winter outings, there isn’t a wrong choice between fine merinos and chic silk either!

Gift Certificates from Gregg’s Cycle

Honestly, gift cards may be the unsung heroes of the holiday season - a reliable choice that nixes guesswork from your shopping spree and still guarantees to spread joy. For those folks in your life who enjoy trekking through the wilderness or cycling through town, look no further than Gregg’s bike shop for roadies to rejoice! Whether you gift a tune-up or an entire bike of their choice, it's a great active option.
