Are you pressed for time or just plain out of ideas for holiday-season gift-giving? Gift certificates are a great idea — you can support local businesses and give a gift which will really be appreciated. Many kinds of gift cards are available in Wedgwood, including grocery stores, hair salons, coffee shops and restaurants.
You can support local businesses and give a thoughtful gift at the same time, by giving something that your recipient will really appreciate: a certificate for coffee, food or services such as haircuts and even pet care.
The Wedgwood Broiler at 8230 35th Ave NE (phone 523-1115) makes a wonderful special-occasion dining experience and has gift certificates which you can give.
Wedgwood’s coffee shops, Cafe Javasti at 8617 35th Ave NE and the Van Gogh Coffeehouse at 8210 35th Ave NE have gift cards which will be much appreciated by your coffee-drinking friends and family.
Gifts of food are available from La Pasta at 9118 35th Ave NE in the Morningside Market building (phone 349-8576.) La Pasta has ready-to-fix meals as well as cheeses, sauces, caramels, chocolate and wine which makes great hostess gifts.
And what about your pet-loving friend? You can put money on their account at the Northeast Veterinary Clinic, 9505 35th Ave NE, to help with future appointments.
Here’s another idea: give a friend or relative the gift of cleaning services from a Wedgwood-owned business: Maid in the NW. It’s not too late for the holidays — Maid in the Northwest can come out to your house within one week of your call.
