Travel Guide: Portland Holiday Shopping Made Easy

This holiday season, we went to Oregon to visit family and friends. It was nice to get back and catch up with the people we love. One thing I decided to do this year, was to do all of my holiday shopping for my loved ones in Portland while I was there. Thanks to all of you readers, I got some great recommendations on places to visit.

To avoid the hustle bustle and fight over limited parking, I decided to pop around town using Uber. It was great to be able to move around town using scheduled rides and not have to be fumbling for quarters for the meters, or circling the block looking for a coveted parking spot. I could just jump out of my Uber and enjoy my day of shopping.

I had such a fun shopping day and hit all of the places I had hoped to visit. Here are some of the places I was able to go to using Uber.


I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I walked into Spartan Shop. I found all kinds of home décor items for my family. I wanted to move into the space with the ceiling to floor windows and soaring ceilings!


Sammy’s Flowers is where we always bought flowers when we lived in Portland. I just love the well-curated selection of items in this flower shop. I have been known to bring all kinds of pods and dried flowers back with me to San Francisco.


I’m always in favor of a place specializing in tea. I’m a committed tea drinker and Tea Bar was a great place for a goodie and a delicious cup of tea.


Alder & Co. has been one of my favorite home décor stores in Portland. I never get out of this place without a bag of beauties! They have an extensive selection of Astier de Villette and other handmade items that are perfect for gift giving.


I have to admit, I stopped into WM Goods for me. It was so fun to see all of their beautiful clothing. I bought a great navy blouse that I’ve been wearing way too much!


I love popping by to see the lighting and other items Schoolhouse Electric has in person. I order from their catalog all the time, but having the chance to look at things in person was great!

Consider using Uber to get your shopping done efficiently and painlessly. I had a great day and loved checking out shops in Portland!
