These Shops in Bend, Oregon, Have Something for Everyone on Your Christmas List
Gift-giving is an art. When done well, the recipient feels seen and cared for, touched by the thoughtfulness of the present’s selection. You can’t knock it out of the park one hundred percent of the time, but when you do, it’s usually because you’ve chosen something they covet but would never buy for themselves. To give you an edge, we’ve compiled a lineup of our shops in Bend, Oregon, where you can find something for everyone on your list.
For the Young and Young at Heart
Kids typically aren’t shy about sharing their Christmas wish list, and we appreciate the honesty. Since they make it easy, grabbing their gifts first is a good way to break the shopping ice. Luckily, Cascade Village Shopping Center has two stores filled with items the kiddos in your life will love. Stop by Dakota’s Brick Shop to scoop up everything from fun Lego sets to figurines and accessories like ornaments, backpacks, lunch boxes, and more!
Not sure what the little ones in your life want? Play it safe and go with sugar: See’s Candies and Crumbl Cookies have treats to delight any sweet tooth. See’s Candies holiday-themed confections make perfect stocking stuffers. We also have it on good authority that Crumbl Cookies are Santa’s favorite.
For Tweens and Teens
Teenagers are notoriously tough customers. Play it safe with trendy tech from Best Buy, like virtual reality headsets, gaming gear, wireless headphones, hoverboards, and dirt bikes. They even carry self-care items like shoulder massagers, skin care devices, and mini-fridges for bedrooms.
While it’s tempting to buy your teens clothes, the results can be disappointing. Avoid offending their ever-changing tastes by giving them a gift card to Ross or Famous Footwear. They’ll appreciate new threads and shoes that suit their style.
For Moms, Wives, Sisters, and Gal Pals
Who runs the world? Girls! Reward the ladies you love with gifts that help them unwind, like a relaxing mani-pedi at Pretty Nails or a fun DIY experience at Board and Brush, where they can craft and sip wine with friends. Or, give them a gift card to Pretty Moment’s Lingerie, where they can indulge in delicate chemises and soft nightgowns.
If all else fails, set aside time to treat them to ceviche and hibiscus margaritas at El Rancho Grande or Japanese delicacies and premium saké at Shinsei Sushi. Plus, they’ll love the chance to connect while enjoying great food!
For Dads, Husband, Brothers, and Bros
It’s an age-old question: what to get for the man who has everything? Fortunately, this year, there’s no need to ponder! Head to Dick’s Sporting Goods, where a gift card can help him channel his inner grill master, stock up on golf gear, or outfit him for his next camping trip.
Sports fans will also love a gift card to Pro Image, a sports apparel store packed with regalia to help them represent their favorite teams. Afterward, feast on prime rib and aged whiskey at Blacksteer Steakhouse & Saloon because the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!
For Fur Babies
Don’t forget your furry friends this holiday season. Get festive and lavish your pet with their very own stocking, Christmas toys, and treats from Pet Smart. Your lizard may not like their Santa costume, but you’ll treasure the pictures forever. And fine, your dog might revolt when you strap a reindeer headband on them, but they’ll forgive you when you fork over the candy cane biscuits. Okay, guinea pigs generally aren’t fond of Christmas-themed top hats, but they’ll forget the humiliation when they see their felt-mistletoe chew toy.
Ultimately, holiday pet presents are more for humans than animals, but consider it their gift to you…and your Instagram.
