The Bella Vida Gift Guide has Arrived

This year flew by in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it sort of way. If you're feeling a little overwhelmed by the idea that the holiday season has arrived, you're in luck! We've put together a handy gift guide featuring some tried and true Bella Vida crowd-pleasers, as well as a handful of treasures from a few of our favorite local businesses. Happy Holidays!

For the wine + cheese lover

Having an incredible wine paired with artisanal cheese is one of those quintessential foodie experiences that can turn a good day into an unforgettable one. 

Here in Dundee, Oregon we're lucky to be just a stone's throw from two incredible spots: Briar Rose Creamery, where you can find a curated selection of award winning cheese, and Good Company Cheese, where you'll find a hand selected offering of excellent cheeses as well as some artisanal locally made products that are sure to please.

For the cool cousin

We all have that one cool cousin or sibling that is impossible to shop for. This year, get them something they'll truly love at Velour Fashion. Their vintage pieces are well priced and unique, but our favorite find is their shop merch, specifically the Bearcat Shop Tee. These buttery soft tees are screen-printed by hand in Newberg, Oregon, and will definitely earn you some cool points.

For someone who needs a spa day

It's common knowledge that lavender has been proven to help reduce stress, but did you know that Dundee, Oregon is home to their very own lavender ranch? Swing by Little Lavender Farm, where you'll find an excellent selection of self-care products, all created & packaged right there onsite. Their lavender is grown using only organic practices, and many of them are available to purchase online as well.

For the one who loves giving back to their community

Everyone listed here in our gift guide is a locally-owned small business, so you can feel good about investing funds back into the community. If you want to double your impact though, we recommend purchasing a bottle (or 3) of our delicious TLC Pinot Noir

Our TLC wines were developed as a loving tribute to the memory of Ted Leroy Crawford, with $15 for every bottle sold donated to the Newberg High School Career & Technical Education Program.
