The Trade Alliance’s 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.
We purchase products from these local vendors and retailers to use as gifts on our outbound missions. We have found that gift recipients in many different countries enjoy the Washington made gifts and appreciate their uniqueness. The gifts are symbolic of our region and this leaves a lasting impression on the individual. 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.
