Unique gift guide

Don’t get them socks and underwear. Find your gift recipient something unique, something made by hand, or tied to a place. Everett has what you’re looking for including upscale cooking gadgets, up-cycled Legos, and all of the art.


For young builders

Bricks & Minifigs


Website

Bricks & Minifigs is a shop that’s dedicated to all things Lego. It’s a great place to pick up a prepackaged set of Legos for the builder in your life, or take your young block enthusiast and have them build their creation on the spot. Either way, Bricks & Minifigs is a unique and creative way to get a gift for someone.


For the Funko fan/nerd


Wetmore Forest Funko Pops!


Website

Wetmore Forest Funko Pops! are Funko’s tribute to their home city. They are technically Pop! Monsters, little vinyl figures in the shape of mythical furry creatures with the trademark Pop! jumbo-sized eyes and giant heads. The Funko building (a great place to visit to buy gifts) is located on Wetmore Avenue in the heart of downtown Everett. Bonus! Don’t forget to check out Everett Comics just a block south on Wetmore.

For the locavore and foodie


Sno Isle Co-Op


Website

Pop into Everett’s beloved natural food Co-Op to load up on locally made hard-goods as well as the right stuff for the foodie on your list. You know your hippie aunt would love a kombucha starter or some organic and local vegan something. 

For the Rachael Rays


J. Matheson Kitchen & Gifts


Website

This place is perfect for gifts. The name says it all. J Matheson specializes in nice hand towels, fancy colanders, designer gift cards, and other domestic niceties. An upshot to all of these gifts is that they are beautiful and practical; something your gift recipient will most likely use year-round.

For the underground artist


Black Lab Gallery


Website

Black Lab Gallery on Hewitt is home to the more avant-garde side of visual art. Around the holidays they have a hundred pieces of visual art for under a hundred dollars. It’s a great way to buy something unique for your gift recipient while also using your dollar to support the local arts. 

For the classy artist


The Schack Art Center


Website

The Schack is home to a glass blowing studio as well as a retail space/gallery selling classy glass-blown art, ceramics, jewelry, and paintings. There is no shortage of exceptional art gifts to be picked out here. The price point will be a bit higher, but that only speaks to the quality of the work.
