Love and petrichor (a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather) are in the air which means that the holiday season is right around the corner! No matter what you celebrate (or don't), it's always a wonderful time to show that special someone in your life how much you care about them. We took out all the stops this year so this gift guide features 15 exclusive gift suggestions from 15 of our favorite Seattle partners.
1. New-to-you Music
You know that Barry Manilow Christmas album that everyone loves? Easy Street Records has hundreds of CDs and DVDs available at the tip of your fingers, and when you click here you can knock $2 off of your next used CD!
2. A bottle of local wine
Who doesn't love drinking wine around a fire? Usually the trouble is not finding the wine, rather finding the fire. Eleven Winery has got you covered on the wine front, but unless you've got a firepit or a fireplace, you're probably just going to have to snuggle up in front of the oven or gas stove while you roast your marshmallows inside. When you buy that nice bottle of wine for the romantic datee in your life, click here to get a free wine tasting at Eleven Winery!
3. What better way to say "I love you" than with the gift of a spatula?

4. A classic, well-deserved framing of a loved one
I'm not saying you need to tell anyone you did it, but let's just say that a wrapped object appears suddenly in a spot frequented by your significant other, and let's just say that you pretend you don't know where it came from. When they open it, don't forget to yell "YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED" at a respectable and non-concerning volume. Museum Quality Framing can help you with your punny shenanigans and you can save 25% on photo frames when you click here.
5. Ready to Get Busy?
I'm just going to say it, yeah snacks and fancy dinners are great, but if there's one present that will be appreciated by both you and your partner it's fun stuff for the bedroom. With that said, you should definitely ask your partner what they like (if you don't already know) before going ahead and buying something. So you're either going to have to be really good at listening or willing to ruin a surprise. If neither of you have ever explored adults toys before, and you have no idea what to get, head on over to Babeland and they can help you out. Click here to save 20% on your next purchase and you won't be sorry ;)
6. Step into Christmas with some new boots
No one likes to have cold feet in the winter, especially when they're wet. Gives me the shivers just thinking about it. Having been made in the Pacific Northwest since 1936, Danner's selection of boots is vast and they are all made to get through the worst kinds of weather, while keeping your feet warm and dry. When you've figured out which of the many shoes you want to buy you partner, click here to save 20% on your purchase. Don't forget the wool socks!!!
7. A smelly smell that smells... smelly
It might sound cliché, but a bouquet of flowers is always a fantastic idea. Who doesn't love wonderful smelling flowers in a vase on the dinner table? Unless you're allergic. Make sure the person for whom you are buying flowers is not allergic to the flowers that you're buying, because that will most definitely ruin the moment. When you're ready for your flowers, call up The Stemmery and have the bouquet delivered right to your door! Click here to save 50% off of your first flower arrangement!
