Meredith Lodging’s Bend Gift Guide – Shop Small and Support Local Businesses this Holiday!
Downtown Bend, Oregon is incredibly picturesque and has been thoughtfully developed over the past few decades to preserve its character and charm. We love to support the local businesses of Bend and from the Old Mill District to Downtown’s Wall Street there is no shortage of well-curated local shops to help you check off all the items on your Christmas list. Still looking for the perfect present? We have put together a shortlist of favorite shops and crowd-pleasing items…all conveniently located near our Bend Vacation rentals and Mt. Bachelor Village Resort.
Lark Mountain Modern
It is easy to see why many people come from Portland to shop this carefully curated home goods, furniture, and design shop in Downtown Bend. We are inspired from the moment we walk in the door, and the warm and friendly customer service keeps us coming back. For gift giving, we highly recommend you check out their Christmas ornament collection, the Japanese porcelain bowls, candles, and their colorful animal tea towel collection – the rainbow Llamas are our favorite!
Hot Box Betty
This beloved local boutique is a high-end, eclectic mix of designer clothing, jewelry, and apothecary items. HBB is a wonderful place to shop when you are looking for that extra-special Christmas splurge item. We are big fans of their accessories and fine jewelry, the apothecary items from Santa Maria Novella, and their consignment collection of designer handbags.
It is easy to see why so many people are all about consignment shopping – good for the earth and good for your wallet! Cowgirl Cash is a local treasure that buys/sells/consigns all the clothing, shoes, and accessories that are part of the “cowgirl” chic vibe you see on many of Bend’s most stylish citizens. You will always find something perfect here – we love the INCREDIBLE collections of consignment boots as well as their beautiful jewelry, pearl snap shirts, and dresses.
FOUND Natural Goods
You know those shops where everything is so carefully selected and well-displayed that you walk in and think “I could live here!”? That is how we feel about FOUND Natural Goods. We love everything in this store, and we can always find something for everyone. We suggest you choose an item from their selection of home goods, gourmet food items, jewelry, soaps, perfumes, or their plant collection for your gift-giving this year. A gift from FOUND makes your home and your life Merry and Bright!
Leapin’ Lizard Toy Company
Looking for the perfect toy, game, or puzzle for the kiddos on your list? Look no further than Leapin’ Lizard Toy Company. Known for their incredible selection of toys, both educational and just for fun. This is a stop the whole family will love. We love to give the plush stuffies, educational games, model cars, and art supplies for Christmas!
Jack + Millie
A shop that is as cool as its name. It’s easy to see why this clothing (for men and women) and home accessories shop is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Warm and friendly service, a higher-end and well-chosen selection of unique clothing brands, and an overall clothing and accessories collection that conveys that casual-chic look everyone loves. We find something for ourselves AND a good gift every time we visit! Our top gift picks include the gold overlay jewelry collection for women, Highland sunglasses for men or one of their unisex and outdoors-inspired scents as a perfect stocking stuffer.
Gift Certificates to local food and drink locations we love!
We are also encouraging everyone to give gift certificates to support local restaurants/cafes this year. Here is our shortlist of favorite stops in Bend:
