’Tis the season to #SpendLikeItMatters and we’ve created a special holiday guide to help you celebrate and support diverse local businesses throughout Seattle!

Black Friday is a day that exemplifies our hurried, impersonal, transactional consumer culture. We’re launching the Intentionalist 2018 Seattle Holiday Gift Guide today, because in the midst of the shopping frenzy, we would like to encourage you to take a moment to #BeIntentional.

With many occasions to gift and celebrate, we hope that you will consider spending your money in support of woman-owned, family-owned, minority-owned, native-owned, veteran-owned, LGBTQ-owned small businesses throughout the Seattle community.

As we kick-off an intentional holiday season:

  • Follow us on Instagram to enter our bi-weekly contests and win a prize in each of our four holiday categories: EAT, DRINK, SHOP, EXPERIENCE.
  • Learn about the Intentionalist staff picks when it comes to holiday shopping and celebrating.
  • Let us know if we’ve missed any of your favorite small businesses that you want to see added to the Holiday Gift Guide.


To learn more about Intentionalist please visit our website and be sure that you’re following us on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter). Thanks for all you do to #BeIntentional and #SpendLikeItMatters!

Intentionalist is your local guide to diverse small businesses and the people behind them. We believe that where you spend your money matters, and we’re sure glad you do too. Whether you identify as a localist, activist, or just a good neighbor, we make it easy for you to learn about and support local businesses and the diverse people who own and operate them.
