Gift Guide

The Trade Alliance’s Puget Sound International Gift Guide, catalogs local vendors, retailers and locations where Washington State made products can be purchased for gift giving. Along with the gift guide, we have incorporated a “how-to” guide for international gift giving that emphasizes the different cultures and customs of giving. This document provides many resources in a way we hope you will find readily accessible and helpful in your international gift giving.

The Trade Alliance purchase products from these local vendors and retailers to use as gifts on our International Study Missions and Business and Trade Missions. We have found that recipients of the gifts at the many different countries enjoy the Washington made gifts and appreciate the uniqueness of where the gift comes from. The gifts are symbolic of our region and this leaves a lasting impression on the individual. Many of replicated gifts available in popular gift shops are very likely not made in Washington State and are instead made overseas. Through experience and much gift giving, the Trade Alliance has comprised a list of some of the local establishments that provide products made in Washington. We believe the Puget Sound International Gift Guide will be useful to you and your colleagues.
