2013 Seattle Girls’ Holiday Gift Guide

What women want under the tree


Whether she’s your leading lady, best supporting friend, or just an extra in the movie of your life, follow our direction to find her the perfect present.

Waiting to Exhale
She can block out her worries and relax with all-natural bath soaks from Herbivore Botanicals ($28). The sustainably made skin care line is infused with essential vitamins, minerals, and botanicals. Coconut gives you soft, hydrated skin, while the Sea’s organic sea kelp and Pacific sea salt naturally oxygenates and draws out toxins.

My Fair Lady
Feed the beauty junkie’s addiction with Kari Gran’s new line of mineral makeup ($8-$25). Free of parabens, toxins, dyes, and other scary ingredients, the products allow skin to breathe easy. The Peony blush flatters all complexions; Sandalwood eye shadow can be used dry or wet for a sheer or more opaque look.

bike coat!

Gone with the Wind
She rides her bike to work; she should look good while doing it. Upgrade her polar fleece with Hub and Bespoke’s riding coat ($300). Designed with Seattle’s hills and wet weather in mind, the topper keeps her warm and dry during her commute.

Bridget Jones’s Diary
Stuff her stockings with The Flourish Collection’s Take Note kit ($6). Stowed inside the hand-stamped muslin bag is a mini notebook and pencil with an inspiring message — just the thing for your notorious list maker.

Fried Green Tomatoes
She’s a whiz in the kitchen and the hostess with the mostess. Feather Suzy Homemaker’s nest with cotton Pinecone tea towels ($25) from Wallingford Co. Screen-printed on flour sacks with water-based inks and hand sewn, they display nicely when not in use.


Say Anything
She’s environmentally conscious, but prefers something a little more pleasing to the eye than reusable grocery store bags. Gift her the ideal earth-friendly accessory — a sassy Unimpressed tote ($25) from Far4.

Black Swan
It’s hard to go wrong with cashmere. Souchi uses the soft fabric for leg and thigh warmers ($194-$226) with a ballet-inspired look; a drawstring tie at the knee keeps her warm and toasty all winter long.

Pretty in Pink
The sartorialist delights over Capitol Hill jewelry designer Rachel Ravitch’s sculptural pieces. The Knots necklace ($120) is made with hand-dyed silk fabric stitched over rope and knotted together. 

A real showstopper.
