12 Portland-Based Food and Drink Gifts We’re Giving in 2020

We might be a little biased, but we’re huge fans of giving locally-made gifts to our friends and family—especially edible gifts! We asked our team members what Portland-made products they plan on gifting in 2020, and here’s what they said.

Choi’s Kimchi

Why We Love It: We were heartbroken to hear that the co-founder of Choi’s Kimchi, Matt Choi, unexpectedly passed away in October, and we’re gifting this kimchi far and wide this year in tribute to his wonderful life and accomplishments. Choi’s kimchi is hand-crafted in small batches from generations-old recipes. They use the highest-quality ingredients (something we always appreciate) and you can taste the love, dedication, and mastery of their kimchi in every bite.

Recommended Product: Spicy Napa Cabbage Kimchi

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in stores across the Pacific Northwest

Seely Mint

Why We Love It: Seely is a fourth-generation mint farm that sells classic minty products including mint patties, mint bark, mint melts, mint teas, and the seasonally-appropriate candy canes.

Recommended Product: Peppermint Patties

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in stores across the United States.

Portland Coffee Roasters

Why We Love It: Portland has no shortage of great coffee roasters, but our favorite is Portland Coffee Roasters. Not only do they roast excellent coffee, they’re also invested in supporting communities. For example, sales from this year’s Holiday Roast will benefit the organization Food 4 Farmers!

Recommended Product: Holiday Roast

Where You Can Buy It: Online, at their cafes, and stores across Portland

Bob’s Red Mill

Why We Love It: You might not have known it, but Bob’s Red Mill is based right here in Portland, Oregon! This grocery-store staple can be found across the United States and has some of the best alternative flours, snacks, oats, mixes, and more.

Recommended Product: Grain-Free Brownie Mix

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in grocery stores across the United States

Steven Smith Tea

Why We Love It: We don’t just love the flavors and variety of Steven Smith Tea, we love the packaging, too! Steven Smith is a legend in the tea industry and formerly founded Stash and worked at Tazo, which he sold to Starbucks. Now he’s making tea again as Steven Smith Tea since 2009.

Recommended Product: Nancy and Beth

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in tasting rooms

Pacific Foods Organic Soup

Why We Love It: As the weather gets colder, we all want soup to warm us up! Pacific Foods makes healthy and flavorful condensed soups and broths that are easy to heat up—and heat us up, too!

Recommended Product: Organic Creamy Golden Cauliflower Soup

Where You Can Buy It: Authorized online and physical stores

Eastside Distilling

Why We Love It: Speaking of warming us up in the cold weather, Portland Potato Vodka by Eastside Distilling is especially close to our heart because it’s infused with Secret Aardvark Habanero Sauce! Try it in a Bloody Mary or with pineapple juice and soda.

Recommended Product: Portland Potato Vodka

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in select physical locations

Brazi Bites

Why We Love It: We all like snacks, but not everyone can handle gluten. Brazi Bites offers Latin-inspired gluten-free bites and empanadas.

Recommended Product: Chickpea and Veggie Empanadas

Where You Can Buy It: Online and in select stores

Double Mountain Beer

Why We Love It: We might not be able to enjoy Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery physical locations like we love to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still gift their wonderful beverages and merch this holiday season!

Recommended Product: Hop Lion IPA

Where You Can Buy It: Takeout from their tasting rooms, merch from their webstore, and beer in select grocery stores

Ground Up Nut Butters

Why We Love It: A lot of us grew up with mass-produced peanut butter, but fresh-ground nut butters like those from Ground Up Nut Butters changed the game for us. They have dozens of inventive flavors, including some amazing holiday options. Plus, they sell their nut butters in packets, which makes it ideal for camping.

Recommended Product: Salted Eggnog Coconut + Cashew Butter

Where You Can Buy It: Online

Olympia Provisions

Why We Love It: As far as food gifts go, it’s hard to beat the European-style charcuterie of Olympia Provisions. They even have a gift subscription available at 6, 9, or 12 months so you or a loved one can get salami, sausage, pate, pickles, or a mix on a regular basis.

Recommended Product: Gift Subscription

Where You Can Buy It: Online and Curbside Pickup at restaurant locations

Freeland Spirits

Why We Love It: We know you didn’t think we were done with the spirts! Freeland Spirits is a woman-owned distillery that we recently partnered with to distribute hand sanitizer, but their gins, whiskeys, and more are stellar gifts in some of the most beautiful bottles we’ve ever seen.

Recommended Product: Freeland Gin
