Three Seattle Gifts: Fjallraven, Bella J Candles, and Redmond's Raw Materials

Our final trio of the season smells great, looks Seattle-y, and cooks like a tiny pro.

New store alert! Scandinavian heritage brand Fjällräven is now peddling functional, iconic outerwear and gear right here in downtown Seattle. What could be more Seattle-y? But, no, seriously. It goes further than that; from GQ to Blackbird, people who know about quality goods know that this Swedish line is good looking and super dependable.

Two Seattle natives named Jennifer (what are the odds?) designed a candle that contains a charm. Why? Why not? After the soy parrafin, made-in-America scented flame burns, a small flame-retardant pouch appears in the wax. Your giftee grabs some tweezers, extracts the little pouch, and voila! The charm bracelet or necklace is theirs. The gift that keeps on giving! Today's the last day to order, so you better get on it.

Redmond's Raw Materials makes aprons for big kids too, but we're so darn drawn to these tiny ones. And we keep hearing about the small-sized helpers in Seattle kitchens, so it seems like just the thing. Find this locally made canvas kitchen necessity online at NuBe Green or in their shop.
