In a city as creative as Portland, Oregon, someone’s always working on something. Artists, photographers, writers, and poets—all kinds of makers make their home here, dedicating their days to drawing, knitting, printmaking, and a range of other activities. Lucky for the rest of us, their wares are on sale at the many arts, crafts, and handmade goods collections around town. Here are a few places to stop for the perfect local souvenir.

Crafty Wonderland

The go-to for local art finds, Crafty Wonderland is a biannual maker’s market and shop in the heart of Portland, Oregon, right by Pioneer Courthouse Square. Oregon-made paintings, posters, jewelry, T-shirts, soaps, pottery and much, much more welcome downtown visitors from near and far looking to nab that perfect Portlandian find.

Artistic Portland

A stop for the local art collector, Artistic Portland functions as both a shop and gallery space—an artist’s co-op of sorts, with plenty of room to show off their various wares. One of the city’s more unique collection of crafts, the store features handmade items that range from gnome and fairy houses to cloth dolls, cleaning supplies, and all sorts of local and wonderful smelling candles, soaps, lotions, and potions.

Stumptown Coffee Roasters

For the serious coffee drinker, nothing beats Portland’s famed Stumptown Coffee, only available at select coffee shops around the country and a few of their own cafés on either coast. True fans come straight to the source, however, and a bag of beans makes a great gift for any beloved caffeine freak—even if that person is you.

House Spirits Distillery

For another kind of potable gift, head to House Spirits Distillery. Founded in 2004 and voted one of America’s Best Craft Distilleries by Thrillist, the team batch-distills a variety of spirits, from vodka, aquavit, and whiskey to limited runs of coffee liqueur, rum, and crème de cacao. The quality and packaging can’t be beat, making these bottles a great way to remember Portland’s superior attention to detail.

MadeHere PDX

From furniture and accessories to art, apparel, and even tools, MadeHere PDX prides itself on its fine and curated selection of Portland-made goods. Beverages and edibles also make the cut, as well as beauty, self-care, and kitchen items—almost anything goes, as long as it’s made in Portland, Oregon.


This bright and cheerful space, with its white walls and wood accents, is full of precious Portland-made items just waiting to be discovered. Whether you’re looking for a unique piece of pottery, locally designed jewelry, the perfect card, or a quality handbag, Tilde is a sweet little spot bound to meet any gift need.

Hammer + Vine

Beyond your standard handmade trinkets such as ceramics, jewelry, and greeting cards, Hammer + Vine offers a world of plant life as well. Hanging plants, tiny succulents, an array of cacti, and more will delight any urban gardener, and the staff is happy to assist in putting together a dream DIY terrarium. They even hold workshops for those looking to develop their green thumb.
