Portland Blog: This Week in Portland December 14 - December 21 2013



Hey PortlandNeighborhood Blog lovers, it's the weekend! This is a warmer, wetter PDX than we have seen in awhile, eh? Very welcome, indeed. Don't know about you, but I'm afraid to see next month's utility bill. It's quite a challenge to keep a 1927 bungalow warm. Imagine our household dressed in every stitch of clothing we own PLUS roaring heaters in every room. It's not very often fair PDX sees 10(!!) degrees as the low overnight temperature.

So, it's time to finish up your holiday shopping or gift making given we have two weekends left before Christmas! Are you ready? (I'm not). Here is an all-local Portland Christmas shopping list that is bound to delight stockings all over the city!

New Deal Distillery -- Stop into the tasting room and try the delicious hand crafted spirits. Our favorites: DW Amber Rum and the Wildcat Moonshine.

Coava Coffee -- Simply the best coffee in Portland. Our favorites: Honduran coffee David Mancia and Los Nacientes from Costa Rica.

Olympic Provisions -- Enroll that someone special into the Salami of the Month Club. This is the.finest.salami ever.

Wildfang -- Unique clothing for him and her. Awesome accessories.

New Seasons Market -- New Seasons has beautiful flowers and holiday wreaths. They are even 10% off right now.

Dukers Dills - The best spicy pickle ever. Perfect for the holiday spread. Make sure to buy enough to give a bottle to everyone otherwise you WILL run out.

Holistic Portland Massage - What better gift than the gift of relaxation and pure bliss? Gift cards for all your loved ones and a few for you, too.

Saturday Market - Head down to the Saturday (and Sunday!) Market to find some awesome locally crafted goods.

and last but not least...Powells Bookstore! For all the book worms in your life. See below for some ideas.
