JonBoy Caramels

This Seattle-based confectionery has caramel-making down to a science. Specializing in creative flavors like molasses ginger and smoked whiskey with sea salt, these caramels have certainly grabbed our attention. Individually wrapped, tied up in perfect packaging and sweetened using the best ingredients available, this is gift for someone on your list with a sweet tooth.

Christmas Lighting Festival

People come back to this event year after year to enjoy the magic of Leavenworth’s Bavarian-style village during the holidays. There are special lighting events the first three weekends in December, and the arrival of Santa, dixie bands and a hand bell choir make this event is the good old-fashioned family Christmas you’ve been looking for.

Christmas Ship Festival

Celebrate the season with a moonlit cruise on a festive Christmas ship. A holiday tradition since 1949, you’ll enjoy sailing to oceanside communities in the Puget Sound while the onboard choir sings your favorite carols. Children can listen to Santa read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and make holiday crafts. If you don’t want to take a cruise, you can view the ship from the shore with an evening bonfire on the sand.

San Juan Island Sea Salt

Made on one of the most beautiful islands in the Pacific Northwest, this unique brand relies on two key ingredients to make its mineral-rich and savory salt—sea water and sunshine. With the belief that sea salt should, in fact, taste like the sea, the company’s painstaking process ensures perfectly pinchable salt delivered in adorable little wooden salt boxes.

The Soap Chest

This luxurious soap brand got its start in 2000 with one goal in mind—to create a natural handmade soap that incorporates homegrown herbs, local honey and goat milk. Each bar is hand cut with care to ensure a truly custom product perfect for gift-giving (or keeping for yourself). Scents include Spiced Apple Cider and Sunriver Sage.
