Spread the Kitsap CHeer & Shop Your Local Businesses

Featured Kitsap County Businesses for Unique Shops & Experiences

Have a Recommendation to Add? Let me know here!

One of my goals last year before the holidays was to put together a list of Kitsap County businesses, for local gift ideas. After some time spent gathering locals' recommendations, and recalling all of my own favorites from my many years here, the list finally grew enough to share. Shopping local saves you time and stress waiting for shipping, and keeps our community thriving. I hope you use this list to shop for gifts for your loved ones, plan an outing or find a great new place to shop, eat or a fun activity! Kitsap County is full of unique spots, and I'm excited to feature some well deserving businesses. If you have a favorite place to add to this Kitsap County list, please feel free to email me at bre@brezphotography.com or send me a Facebook message with my messenger icon, at the bottom right of this page.
