Holiday Gift Guide / Gifts For Her

For Her

This holiday season, The Junction is taking the guesswork out of gift giving. We’ve gathered up our favorite ideas from our local Junction shops and brought them together in one place to showcase what shopping local has to offer you. Do you need a present for a family member, a friend, or a co-worker and not know where to start? This is the place to go! Browse by category to find gift ideas that will certainly wow and impress your family and friends, while also supporting your local neighborhood shops.

This year give a gift that means so much more – give a gift that supports your local community.

During each week of this holiday season, we’re highlighting a couple different categories in the Gift Guide to bring our best ideas directly to you. Today we’re talking about Gifts For Her.

 

Gifts For Her

And for the many special ladies in your life… Maybe she’s a mom. A girlfriend. Perhaps she’s a wife. Does she fancy the finer things, like bracelets and earrings? Or are confetti scarves the extent of her bling? Does she fish? Does she hike? Does she ride a bike? Does she cook? Does she doodle? Does she enjoy a good noodle? Is she acoustic or electric? Perhaps she’s eclectic. Where do you start? How about wearable art?

 

For Her

Buying gifts for the ladies in your life doesn’t need to be a challenge. Our Junction merchants can help you to figure out exactly what she wants this holiday season. Start by thinking of the things that she enjoys – like her hobbies and her passions – and work from there. In no time you’ll have checked off your list AND dispelled the myth of the “difficult person to shop for”.

Jewelry is the quintessential Holiday gift, and with the amazing selection of bling that our Junction shops stock, you’ll find the right piece to suit any style. Twilight Gallery & Boutique, VAIN, and Carmilia’s all carry artful, unique jewelry made by local artisans here in Seattle. Menashe & Sons Jewelers carries a more traditional selection of jewelry, with a wide variety of earrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces featuring precious stones and quality settings.

For the lady who loves her hobbies, our Junction shops are ready to equip her to explore further and have more fun. Cooks, outdoor enthusiasts, cyclists, and musicians will love gifts from JF Henry Cooking & Dining, Emerald Water Anglers, West Seattle Cyclery, and Thunder Road Guitars. Each of these stores, while offering very different stock, specialize in one common thing – providing the best quality gear for the most discerning customers.

There is so much more to discover in the Gifts for Her section of The Junction Holiday Gift Guide, including more shops and gifts to get your wheels turning. There you’ll also find shopping lists, maps, links, and other fun tips and ideas to help you make-merry this season!

December 17th

We’ve really been enjoying Hometown Holidays in The Junction this year! Last weekend, our neighbors opened their closets and generously donated many warm coats to benefit those in our community who could use a little help this holiday season. The response was overwhelming and gave us a real sense of the community pride and care that West Seattle feels.

This weekend we will be hosting a very special dignitary at his “home away from the North Pole”, here in the Junction! At “Santa’s House”, you’ll find a festive tent to drop in for a hug and a smile. Bring your camera and capture your own special moment. While you’re here, consider bringing a pack of diapers or making a cash donation to benefit families here in West Seattle through WestSide Baby. Here’s a little more about the event:

“As the temperatures drop it’s important that we work together to ensure that children in need in our communities have everything that they need to stay safe, warm and dry. As part of their annual JOY campaign WestSide Baby will be holding a drive to collect Size 6 diapers which will be distributed to families in need through over 120 social service agencies.”

Holiday Gift Guide / Gifts For Kids

Holidays_GiftGuide

This holiday season, The Junction is taking the guesswork out of gift giving. We’ve gathered up our favorite ideas from our local Junction shops and brought them together in one place to showcase what shopping local has to offer you. Do you need a present for a family member, a friend, or a co-worker and not know where to start? This is the place to go! Browse by category to find gift ideas that will certainly wow and impress your family and friends, while also supporting your local neighborhood shops.

This year give a gift that means so much more – give a gift that supports your local community.

During each week of this holiday season, we’re highlighting a couple different categories in the Gift Guide to bring our best ideas directly to you. Today we’re talking about Gifts For Kids (& Pets).

 

ForKids

Holiday shopping for munchkins can be a real treat. The pure anticipation can’t be beat. Kids tear into their gifts, so excited and full of wonder. And don’t forget the fur babies (a common holiday blunder)! They might ask for a shiny new collar or leash to show off on their walk, if only they could tell you, if only they could talk. And a squeak toy, you just can’t beat, except with a stocking full of treats.

Does your toddler love to build giant towers? Does your preschooler dig stuffies and dolls with superpowers? For the active wee one, you may consider a trike. For the sibs, maybe scooters or big kid bikes? A fun helmet is sure get them all psyched. Craft kits are a hit if you’ve got artsy tots. And little programmers will adore their own moonwalking robots.

 

Kids

Watching kids open presents is one of the simple joys of the holidays. Seeing their pure excitement gives everyone the chance to relive their best childhood holiday memories while making new ones with the next generation. Shopping for kids can actually be so simple when you trust the expertise and insight of people who know what kids want and can take the time to help you find the perfect gift. The Junction is the perfect place to find that personal touch. Here are some of our favorite suggestions:

Curious Kidstuff is the place to go to find fun toys, interactive games, and educational products for kids of all ages. The store is a treasure trove! They stock many of the major brands, like Lego and Playmobile, as well as toys and products from smaller companies too. Their extensive selection is offered in one of the most imaginative and fun spaces you can find, with murals and displays to delight both young and old.

Northwest Art & Frame has creative kits and sets for children who like make fun things and explore their artistic side. Northwest Art & Frame’s friendly staff can personally help you to choose the right set for any child from their large selection. Just tell them a little about who you’re shopping for and they can offer a range of kits. They can even suggest add-ons to make it more personal like a fun set of markers or pens.

Click! Design That Fits is featuring one of the “it” toys of this holiday season, the Ozobot Tiny Robot. This amazing toy allows kids to learn all about coding and robots. If you like the idea of picking a gift that is both fun to play with, and yet has the something valuable to teach, this is a great choice!

Many of us recall receiving that one special gift during the holidays as kids. For many of us it was a bike. You can create this classic holiday memory for your child or grandchild with the help of West Seattle Cyclery. They can guide you in choosing a customized biking kit for any child, including important accessories such as helmets and lights.

Do you have younger kids on your list, or maybe a couple with a new addition to the family? City Mouse Studio is the place to go to find clothing, toys, and other unique and well-designed products for both families and kids. Are you taking holiday photos this year? Get a special outfit at City Mouse from their wonderful collection of high quality kids clothing. Your cards have never looked so good!

Maybe your kids are more of the furry kind? Next-to-Nature is the place to go to make sure your family pet feels loved and included this holiday season. They have a great selection of products for both dogs and cats, including their fun holiday lines.

Check out the Holiday Gift Guide to see the full selection of gifts and shops featured under Gifts For Kids (& Pets). There you’ll find shopping lists, maps, links, and other fun tips and ideas to help you make-merry this season!

During each week of this holiday season, we’re highlighting a couple different categories in the Gift Guide to bring our best ideas directly to you. Today we’re talking about Gifts For The Home.

 

Gifts For the Home

Spark the holiday spirit by filling your home with music and cheer. C’mon let’s hear it, the season is here. Decorate and celebrate. And don’t be late—you’ll want plenty of time to appreciate. Light votives and candles to flicker and flare. Make sugar cookies and hot apple cider to fill the air. Set out Stollen to enjoy with holiday punch. Invite the whole family over for Christmas Day brunch. Deck the halls with garlands and generations of Santa pics. Hang ornaments old and new for the perfect holiday mix.

 

Gifts For The Home

Decorating our homes for the holidays and inviting family and friends over to celebrate is part of what makes this season really special. Each year we bring out our favorite traditions to share and fondly remember years past, while basking in the warmth of good company and good cheer. It’s the best of what this season has to offer! Give the gift of togetherness this year by focusing on making the home cozy, festive, and full of good food.

Plan a party or host a dinner! Junction Shops like Bakery Nouveau and The Beer Junction, as well as the West Seattle Farmers Market, are great places to source specialty food and drinks that add gourmet elegance and local flair to holiday gatherings. Invite your guests to experience true northwest hospitality by selecting locally made for your table. Also make sure to stop by JF Henry Cooking & Dining, Click! Design That Fits, and the Stop N’ Shop to find the right finishing touches to make your event feel extra festive.

You could also plan a more informal gathering like a cozy holiday brunch and see what treats Great Harvest Bread Co. has in store for you. Trim the tree and munch on pastries and breads while finding the perfect place to hang your newest ornament from Northwest Art & Frame. Holiday memories are made during mornings like this!

Finally, sprucing up your decor and decking the halls can also be easy and fun this year. Wallflower Custom Framing will help you finally get those cherished family photographs up on the wall for everyone to enjoy.

Check out the Holiday Gift Guide to see the full selection of gifts and shops featured under Gifts For The Home. There you’ll find shopping lists, maps, links, and other fun tips and ideas to help you make-merry this season!

Gifts For The Home


Community + Love Benefit

 

In the midst of all the excitement and fun of kicking off this holiday season here in The Junction, we have been keeping a place in our thoughts for two amazing people. Frances and John Smersh, owners of Click! Design That Fits, are the kind of people who make the The Junction a special place to live, a great place to work, and a unique place to shop. Earlier this year, they just received some very sad news, Frances was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s.

 

Benefit

While the timeline is uncertain, Early Onset Alzheimer’s can move quickly, and what we do know is that the next twelve months will be the best Frances and John can expect to have together. Friends and family have started a fundraiser to raise money to help with medical costs and to allow them to step away from Click! for a while to enjoy this time together. We would like to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to lend their support.

If you would like to make a contribution, please check out the fundraiser here.

In addition to the fundraiser, it was just announced that this Sunday, December 6th, there will be an amazing benefit concert held in honor of Frances and John. After hearing the news of Frances’ diagnosis, several long-time friends of the Smershes who are also musicians have banded together to present a unique and exceptional night of music. The musicians, having played and performed in many of Seattle’s most notable acoustic bands, are pooling their well-honed talents together for a one-night performance to benefit Frances and John. Drawing from a range of folk, swing, americana, blues, old-time and bluegrass, it promises to be an engaging and satisfying night of music, and a celebration of community and love.

 

Benefit

The details:
When: Sunday, 12/6, from 6-8:30p
Where: Karass Creative (click here for a map)

$25 / ticket, which can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets
