Put Some SEA in their Stockings

December 10, 2019

Around the holidays, your head’s buzzing with to-dos. As you head through security, you realize that you forgot stocking stuffers for the family gift exchange. 

Although a lump of coal is inexpensive, just don’t. We have better ideas for last-minute stocking stuffers from the merchants at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). They’re so good your loved ones will never know that you waited until the last minute. 

Here are a few quick picks that you can stash in your carry on and be on your merry way. 

Season to Jam

Put some pep in their step with an album from Sub Pop, a Seattle independent record label with a retail store in the Central Terminal. You can pick up music, Sub Pop merchandise, and items sourced from local designers, artists, and companies.
