Give The Gift Of Lincoln City
A gift guide to supporting local businesses this holiday season.
This holiday season, we encourage you to “Give The Gift Of Oregon” and we are breaking down what shopping locally looks like in Lincoln City. It is the season of giving and what better way than to support your neighbors' business. We learned the importance of supporting locally during the pandemic and why stop now? Purchase gifts, stocking stuffers, food, or even trip/gift certificates.
Coffee & Tea
Our friends at Left Coast Coffee Company in Depoe Bay can not only provide you with delicious local coffee but also men's and women's apparel, hats, and other accessories. They are currently running a promotion called “Fuel a Frontliner” where they are giving away 500 12oz specialty bags of coffee to those serving us on the frontline as well as those still recovering from the Echo Mountain Fire. Pacific Grind is a local favorite and has been a popular meeting point for business and leisure. Stop in for a coffee and grab your friend a gift card while you're there. From coffee and tea to a large gift section including mugs, wall decor, and even a stocking stuffer section, Salt at the Lincoln City Outlets creates a one-stop-shop for your friends and family. While you're out and about shopping, stop by Lighthouse Coffee or Zefir for a holiday drink pick me up, and get your best friend a gift card before you leave.

Inside you will find a large assortment of function and decorative pottery, art, and an array of styles that represent themes and techniques of our region. A revamped online store makes it easy to order virtually. Lincoln City Glass Center, who you may know from their “design your own” program, also has an extensive gallery of glass art for purchase.
