I have partnered with the Stilly Valley Chamber of Commerce and the City of Arlington for the BRAND NEW online shopping marketplace, Shop Local Arlington, and this guide – Best Gifts for the Homebody.
I have had the privilege of living in Arlington, Washington for over 15 years. My husband was born and raised here, and we have built a home we love (next door to family), and are raising our daughters in what we consider our own piece of paradise in the Pacific Northwest.
Arlington is located 40 miles north of Seattle, and 100 miles south of Vancouver, B.C. in Snohomish County. We have lakes, rivers, mountains, ice caves, preserved wildlife, and land, literally right outside our front door.
While I love to travel, 2020 has forced us to pivot, providing an opportunity to explore our own backyard now more than ever.
Truth be told, I have a newfound appreciation for the city of Arlington, and am PROUD to call it home, as I have watched the small businesses CONTINUE TO SERVE the community, trying to support our familiar comforts.
I encourage you this season, please Shop LOCAL, Shop SMALL, and Shop ARLINGTON. You can learn more about the participating businesses on Shop Local Arlington, and follow along here, as I highlight a few of them in a series of gift guides.

Shop Local Arlington: Best Gifts for the Homebody
One thing that 2020 has taught us is how to make the most of being home. For some, it was a sigh of relief, a respite from the overwhelm. For others, it was a screeching halt to normalcy. Regardless, home became a haven in an unpredictable storm for most people, and to be honest, it deserves its moment.
This gift guide is intended for those that revel in the cozy, who prefer a night in, and like to take it easy.
