Phinneywood Gift Guide 2021

The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s Business Group debuted a local gift guide in 2020 to remind our neighborhood that the best gifts are within walking distance, and to support our business district!

Supply chain shortages, shipping delays…We’ve heard the warnings. But, what if, this year, PhinneyWood neighbors set the intention to buy as many gifts as possible from our own local businesses? Avoid the stress and support our local community? A win for all!

It’s true; it is nice to sit at home, avoid the blusters, and pick up presents off the porch. But imagine–you are missing out on a friendly hello and a personal recommendation from a fun crew member at Snapdoodle Toys, a knowledgeable knitter at the Fiber Gallery, or a truly unique handmade gift from a small local maker.

These folks can help you pick out something unique and perfect for all of the different personalities on your list, and you can help them by supporting their business and our hyperlocal economy.

Not sure where to start? That’s where the Phinney Neighborhood Association’s Business Group can help you out! They have reached out to our local businesses to create a Holiday Gift Guide that can give you the nudge you may need!

Perhaps you remember last year’s inaugural online offering, with nearly 30 local locales sharing their three best ideas: Favorite Stocking Stuffer (generally under $25), Favorite Gift, and Most Unique Gift.
