Food memories are important ones. So many of my memories surround food. That’s why I plan meet-ups with friends around meals and trips around awesome restaurants.
My visits to Seattle have involved a few of those memories, even if they may be a bit on the touristy side. Walks through the fish-fragrant Pike Place Market. Amazing hot coffee at the original Starbucks. Chocolate-covered local cherries I couldn’t get enough of. I’ll never forget these moments. Seattle is a magical place. I don’t even care if it’s rainy. This Washington gift guide has a little bit of all of that, making it easy to bring the Evergreen State home. (Well, except for the seafood. You definitely should go to Seattle for that. Trust me.) // susannah
P.S. Apologies if you were looking for one of these posts last week! I had a lot going on and didn’t get a second to wrap this one up. To make up for it, there’s going to be two of them this week!
The Kitchen Road Trip series is a virtual ‘trip’ to a different state. Posted weekly, each post is a gift guide to items from a different state, in alphabetical order, and features food & drinks, books, home goods and travel items.
