Think it's hard to find a reasonably priced locally made gift these days? Not quite! We tracked down three of our favorite stocking-stuffer size goods made in and around the city. See our picks below and check out our Holiday Gift Guide, holiday items of the moment, and more as the holiday countdown ticks on.
We've been loving on Kari Gran's lip whip since there was only one hue, but this season the local brand added two new shades to the lineup of all-natural, glossy and good-for-you lip treatments. Naughty (in a sort of marsala shade) and Nice (peachy pink) come in a combo pack for $35 or individually for $20 each. Order online or check Seattle retailers like Bella Fiore.
Earrings are somewhat of a catch-all gift for the women in your life. Moms, girlfriends, your teenage niece...check, check, check. Our go-to comes courtesy of local jewelry line Baleen. These cool gold-plated cuffs are edgy enough for your gal pals but still minimal for chic grandmas. Pick them up at Prism in Ballard for $28.
Another one of those fits-everyone presents: coasters. This stately leather set of four comes from Seattle brand Hardmill (also known for waxed canvas totes and the rugged apron seen in our gift guide). The handmade table protectors are available at E. Smith Mercantile for $38.
Another one of our favorite options: letterpress typeface coasters from Paperhammer (only $10 for a set of six!).
