Shop for Christmas Gifts
Kris Kringl | Address: 907 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
If Christmas threw up, you would get Kris Kringl. This fun shop has everything you could want or need for the holidays. I spent a lot of time in Kris Kringl gawking at how beautiful it was and the detail that went into decorating it. They even hung a giant Santa sleigh above the shop. If you can’t make it to Leavenworth in the winter, you can still enjoy it year-round, although it probably won’t have the same magic it has during the holidays. I should also add that this store gets super busy, especially on weekends, so if you can, visit right when it opens to avoid long lines.
The Wood Shop | Address: 719 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
This was a cute toy store. They had modern toys and old-fashioned toys that I remember playing with when I was a kid. It’s a building you can’t miss quite literally. On the building, there is a massive painting of a skier jumping off a mountain and it’s one of my favorite murals in Leavenworth. It’s also next to a hat shop which is worth checking out as well.
The Oil & Vinegar Cellar | Address: 633 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
I bet you can guess what Oil & Vinegar sells. If you guessed Oil & Vinegar you would be correct. If not, well… I really don’t know what to say. I will say that Oil & Vinegar has some delicious products. You can taste different ones, and they even offer bread to try with the oils. I am not a huge vinegar person, so I didn’t try any, but I am sure they are just as good. They have over 15 flavors of olive oil and vinegar, so if you are indecisive you may have some trouble. I purchased the garlic & mushroom-infused oil and tried oregano-infused oil, which was equally as delicious.
Cheesemonger | Address: 819 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
Cheese. Must I say more? This shop is quite small, but if you love cheese as much as I do, you will want to buy out their entire stock. They have cheese’s from all over the world, and some are a bit more unique than others, like Irish Whisky Cheddar, Buffalo Wing (Which I got!), lavender honey goat cheese, and of course if you want something a bit more generic, they have a double cream brie that’s to die for. I also got a truffle cheddar cheese which, if I am being honest, did not last very long. If I haven’t convinced you, here is an excellent article about the cheese shop. They list some of the best cheeses to get, but I would recommend going in and trying a bunch.
Cup and Kettle | Address: 819 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
This was one of my favorite shops. They sell 150 varieties of tea and spices from all over the world, and I personally bought enough tea and spices to last the year.
Krampus Kave | Address: 900 Front St o, Leavenworth, WA 98826
If you are into comic books, board games, and really anything nerdy, you’ll love Krampus Kave. I especially loved them because they required masks and enforced that rule, but I also love comic books. They had a lot of fun knick-knacks that would make perfect Christmas presents or stocking stuffers!
Leavenworth Boutique | Address: 707-715 Front St, Leavenworth, WA 98826
Ahhh, I LOVED Leavenworth Boutique. It’s actually five shops in one building:
- Pine Hill Mercantile
- JT Blue
- Copper Creek
- Mountain Modern Supply
Each one sells slightly different things, but there is one checkout counter so you can browse each store freely. I think what stood out the most was the fact that they color coordinate all their items. It was glorious and made shopping so much fun. They sell the cutest clothes, books, household items, candles, jewelry, and really anything you could possibly want. I bought an adorable narwhal mug that I shall cherish forever.
A Book for All Seasons | Address: 707 US-2 STE B, Leavenworth, WA 98826
I love exploring independent bookstores and supporting them when I can. This is a cute shop that has a wide array of books. I love reading so if it were up to me I would spend hours browsing all the books.
Candle Connection | Address: 725 Front St # C, Leavenworth, WA 98826
Is there a shop that smells better than Candle Connection? Well, Maybe the bakery down the street, but Candle Connection smells pretty darn good! If you are in the market for a specific candle brand or scent, they will probably sell it, or if you are looking to make a candle yourself, they sell everything you need to make that happen. Moral of the story: Candle Connection has pretty much everything your little candle-loving heart would desire.
