Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Hair Dryer
For Christmas this year, my husband surprised me with the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. I had seen ads for it and watched as other influencers posted about it, but honestly, I didn't understand what the buzz was about. For starters, the blow dryer is nearly $400, which is a far cry from the $40 dryer I had been using from Revlon for years. And secondly, I had never used a dryer with a hole in the middle and had no idea how it worked. Turns out, this blow dryer can dry my hair in 8 minutes flat and I'm telling you, it's worth every dollar. It used to take me 25-35 minutes to thoroughly dry my hair and I would have to dry it in layers because my hair is so thick. With the Dyson, I can dry my hair quickly and move on to styling in a record amount of time. My entire "get ready routine" has become much more efficient and I feel like I've been given my valuable time back. The best part is, that in addition to rapid dry time, the Dyson protects hair from heat damage and visibly deceases frizz and flyaways, which is MAJOR for my naturally wavy hair.
Feller Women's Queen Anne Trench
Women's Coats & Jackets
A stylish raincoat is essential if you live in Seattle. I love this local brand because they make modern raincoats that you'll actually enjoy wearing.

This hydrating body scrub is made from nourishing butters, Himalayan salts, and fruit oils to help gently exfoliate and moisturize skin. This gift makes a great stocking stuffer! French Girl Organics is based in Seattle, crafted in small batches, and locally-owned.
Moonlit Skincare Face Mask
Face Mask
The silk face masks by Moonlit Skincare have quickly become my absolute favorite. I’ve literally purchased every available color and keep them in all of the handbags I own so that I’m never without my favorite mask. I initially purchased these masks to help with mask acne (which they are brilliant for!) but I also love the fact that they are comfortable, breathable, and easy to adjust. The blush pink is perfect for Galentine’s Day gifting!
Moonlit Skincare Midnight Shift Overnight Facial Oil
Face Oil
This helps me fall asleep and night and works to alleviate dry skin. My kids like it too!
One Imaginary Girl Silk Luxe Face Mask in Fashion Sketch Print
Face Mask

The Paychi Guh line is perfect for women who covet cashmere! Local designer Karen Guh creates beautiful pieces that are designed to be worn year-round and blend seamlessly into your wardrobe. Each piece is luxuriously soft and lightweight, making it perfect for everyday wear and essential for travel.
Peak + Valley Nuture My Skin
Skin Care
If your girl tribe is anything like mine, you spend a lot of time talking about health + wellness. It’s not just about eating healthy food (although that’s important too!) it’s about integrating self-care practices into your everyday life. I love the full line of Peak + Valley supplements by local boss babe Nadine Joseph. They’re formulated with adaptogens like reishi mushroom to help support immune functions, brain health, and skin tone. The ‘Nurture My Skin’ blend is a must-have for beauty mavens.
Pipe & Row Slippers
If cozy slippers aren’t part of your WFH wardrobe, you’re doing it all wrong. Galentine’s Day is the PERFECT excuse to gift your gal pals colorful slippers. Seattle boutique Pipe & Row has these slippers in stock in 8 different colors, including pink and red.
Sway & Cake Kimono Robe
This silk robe is a bit of a splurge but the fabric is insanely soft and the bold print makes me smile.
This Matters Collection
For friends who want to make the world a better place, give the gift of jewelry that gives back. Cura Co. recently released a new collection in partnership with Boma Jewelry called “This Matters”, a limited edition collaborative jewelry collection designed to fund organizations working on the ground in pursuit of racial justice and redistribution of wealth. 100% of the profit from this collection will support the Black College Matters campaign by Save Your VI, a non-profit organization dedicated to advocacy for Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Proceeds from this collection will specifically support the college education of BIPOC activists Delanie Seals and Izzy Miller.
Two Cranes Botanicals Attune CBD Oil
Cbd Products
CBD is a great way to help moms relax and take the edge off a stressful day. Whenever I take CBD oils, I always ensure they're from a single-source origin and 3rd party tested for purity and potency. Two Cranes Botanicals is an excellent line that uses organically grown hemp and USDA certified organic MCT oil. These formulas are non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive, containing less than 0.3% THC. I also love that they are available in a variety of potencies so that you can dose depending on your specific needs. Co-founder Hanna Yi is also a local mom! Shop for Two Cranes locally at K Banana at University Village or in Bellevue at Jujubeet on Main Street, both stores are also owned by local moms.
Veja Esplar Leather Sneakers
Stylish moms will love these eco-friendly sneakers by Veja that are made from organic cotton and recycled plastic bottles. The insole is made from Amazonian rubber, sugar cane, and recycled E.V.A. plastic. Named as "The Most Ethical Sneaker Brand in the World", Veja sneakers are versatile and great for sustainably-minded moms who have a classic sense of style. Available in Pioneer Square at Flora & Henri, owned by local mom Jane Hedreen.

Special Occasions

Boma Jewelry
Boma Jewelry has been family-owned and operated for nearly 40 years. All of the jewelry is ethically-made, hypoallergenic, and nickel-free. I have sensitive skin and their jewelry works really well for me!
Demri Rayanne Photography
Demri takes ALL of my personal and professional photos. She has such an amazingly creative eye and works to get the perfect shot every time!
Owned by retail veteran Summer David, Foundation has an amazing assortment of apparel, accessories, and jewelry that you can shop in-store or online. When it comes to gift picks, I like their assortment of sustainable totes, the cozy sweater selection, and the F*ck Necklace, which kind of sums up our dumpster fire of a year. Yes, I did in fact buy this exact necklace for myself and it's part of my regular rotation of jewelry. BONUS: They also have a great sustainable fashion section.
For as long as I can remember, Horseshoe has been a staple in Ballard for those shopping for women's fashion and accessories. They have a great assortment of apparel, accessories, and gifts from brands like BB Dakota, Veronica M, and Prairie Underground (local label!). A few of my faves include the Love Token coats, the Motley Crue sweatshirt, and the Molly Debiak Womxn Amulet.
Les Amis
Opened in 1996, Les Amis is a cozy boutique in Fremont offering a unique selection of women's apparel and accessories. Check out new arrivals before heading into the store on Instagram @LesAmisSeattle or preview online. They don't offer online shopping at the moment, but you can call the store to purchase items you see on their website and social media pages.
Made in Washington
Made in Washington is the BEST place for local gifts. They have pre-made gift boxes or you can make your own. I think they also have flat rate shipping for the holidays.
Pipe and Row
This great boutique, located in the heart of Fremont, has an amazing assortment of wearable women's fashion and accessories from designers around the world. Locally owned by Kayla Gil, Pipe & Row also has a great selection of sustainable brands that are fun and easy to shop. Check out P&R on Instagram for a first-look at new arrivals.
Portage Bay Goods
Known as the gift shop for "thoughtful procrastinators", Portage Bay Goods has a dynamic assortment of gifts that you won't find anywhere else. The selection includes greeting cards, home decor, kids books, craft supplies, and even jewelry. I'm a big fan of the La Croix Candles, Taco Rattle, and San Juan Island Bath Salts (locally made!). You can also shop online and pick-up in store to save on shipping.
If you're out shopping in Ballard this holiday season, don't miss Prism and its colorful assortment of apparel, accessories, home goods, and gifts. They even have a playful assortment of products for kids including face masks, toys, books, and clothing.
Queen Anne Green Dispatch
Owned locally by sisters Tara and Sabrina, Queen Anne Dispatch is brimming with great holiday gifts including candles, beauty products, bath salts, gourmet chocolates, toys, games, baby gifts, and more. The best part is that they can help wrap and ship to anywhere in the world, making holiday shopping easy and efficient. While they don't offer online shopping at this time, you can call the store and get shopping support over the phone.
Robbins Brothers
Robbins Brothers is great and can fix older pieces of jewelry.
This little shop nestled on the top of Queen Anne is one of my favorite places to shop for holiday gifts. They have an extensive assortment of home goods and decor, plus books, stationery, cards, and baby gifts. On-site gift wrapping is available.
The Confectionery
The running joke in our family is that my husband won me over by leaving candy on my desk each time I would leave for meetings. It's safe to say that I've passed my love of candy on to my kids and there's nothing they savor more than a trip to The Confectionery at University Village. At the shop you'll find everything from traditional candy to artisanal chocolates, cards and gifts. The chocolate covered gummy bears are high on our list of favorites, but we can also be easily swayed by the bags of sour gummies and candy fruits. The Confectionery is independently owned by local mom Kristi Holmes.
