The Downtown Edmonds 2023 Holiday Gift Guide
When you live and love local like we do, your approach to holiday gifting tends to include a long list that you make and check twice (or half a dozen times) close to home. Investing in your city and its shops just feels good, and it feels even better during the holidays.
Given our shared goals, we created our ultimate guide to downtown shopping, which is beautifully ripe (like the perfect Christmas stocking orange) with recommendations from Downtown Edmonds businesses. Know that they were all limited to a sentence or two to make this guide digestible and that there is always so much more to explore at each shop.
Bookmark this page and plan accordingly. Your holiday shopping success is assured when you spend in the place that has your heart.
Whether you’re on the hunt for art classes or fine jewels, local wine, gift cards, or everything in between, you’ll check giftees off your list with abandon.
