Our Alaskan Gift Guide

December 15, 2014

Gift guide final This year we picked out some of our favorite Alaskan gifts and experiences to share with you for the holidays. Take a look!   1. Rie Munoz: Portraits of Alaska - Brings together in one lavish volume all of her published artwork from 1966-1995. This 30 year retrospective includes 351 full color plates presented in chronological order and annoted with captions by the artist. It depicts charming, familiar situations many, as life-long Alaskans, can relate to. 2. Drifters Fish Smoked Salmon - Beautiful and scrumptious wild Alaskan smoked salmon by Nelly & Michael Hand from Cordova, Alaska. You can purchase a gift pack which will be delivered to your door starting the week of Dec. 17th. 3. Tutka Bay Lodge Cooking Class - Across the bay from Homer, you will find a cooking school aboard an rustic, re-purposed crabbing boat named the Widgeon II. Classes include: The Harmony of Food, A Northern Table, A Seaside Garden - exploring global cuisines while using local Kachemak Bay and Alaskan regional ingredients. 4.  Local Seafood from the Alaska Marine Conservation Council - Catch of the Season provides the opportunity to purchase high quality, locally sourced seafood from environmentally-responsible fisheries and community-based fishermen. Order wild salmon, rockfish, Kodiak-jigged cod and Norton Sound crab for your family! 5. Swedish Sami Bracelet -  Beautiful, traditional jewelry made by the owners of High Tide Arts in Homer. The pewter/silver thread comes from Lappland and they use reindeer leather and caribou antler buttons in sewing these bracelets. They take on the character of the owner over time and become even more beautiful as they age. 6. Fishes & Dishes Cookbook - A cookbook of 80 mouthwatering seafood recipes focusing on fresh Northwest and Pacific Rim flavors, influenced by the bounty of the Alaskan waters. Inside, you’ll also peek into the remarkable lives of the women who work in America’s deadliest industry. They share funny and sometimes harrowing stories of running their own boats crab fishing on the Bering Sea, long-lining for halibut and black cod, and tendering salmon in Southeast Alaska, all from the unique perspective of women working in a predominately male industry. 7. Alaska Artisanal Gift Boxes - Small-batch, specialty food products made, grown, and harvested in Alaska by Alaskans. Find tea boxes, brunch boxes, husky boxes, expedition boxes and more.   We wish you all the happiest of holidays & a bright solstice. Emma Teal & Claire
