THE 2020 VISALIA HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Welcome to the 2020 Visalia Holiday Gift Guide! We will help you shop local and share your love for Visalia this holiday season with our top picks for the best gift giving.

This season may look a little different but even if you can’t be together, you can share a little Visalia love with family and friends. Now, more than ever, Visalia local businesses are depending on your support.

Whether it’s a museum membership, a farm subscription box, a national park annual pass or a one-of-a-kind piece of art, Visalia has the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

Surprise the whole family with an annual pass to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. We love the view from the top of Moro Rock, driving through the iconic Tunnel Log, or taking an adventurous hike in Kings Canyon, the deepest in North America. With an annual pass you can head to the parks anytime you need some fresh mountain air.

Visalia has lots of family-friendly things to do that make great gift ideas. Consider Visalia Adventure Park passes or an annual pass to Imagine U Children’s Museum. The museum has been hard at work adding new exhibits and attractions that encourage creative and collaborative play.


There are lots of ways to share the love of great food with the Foodie in your life. We love the holiday boxes from The Sisters Market, filled with farm fresh goodness. The charcuterie boxes from Artisan Box are beautiful and delicious. Buy two: one to keep and one to gift friends then share them together over a Zoom cocktail party. Cheers!  


Deliver a delicious present filled with fresh selections from the Visalia Farmers Market and Naturally Nuts like almonds, walnuts and honey. Naturally Nuts has baskets ready to go and they can ship worldwide.

From dish towels to cookware to gourmet food items, the team at Pacific Treasures will create a gift basket filled with epicurean delights. Trust us . . . this will be the prettiest wrapped gift under the tree. Coffee is one our top picks for gift giving. Pair fresh roasted coffee beans with a Visalia mug from Component Coffee Lab for the coffee lover in your life. 


Visitors to Visalia come for the broad range of outdoor activities like hiking, climbing, and fishing. After all, we do have the Sierra Nevada mountains in our backyard! Help support Sequoia Riverlands Trust or Sequoia Parks Conservancy with the gift of an annual membership. Check our their online gift shop as well. An annual pass to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks won’t break the bank at only $35 for a whole year of hiking, climbing and exploring.


For the mountain biker or road trekker, consider a new bike or biking accessories from Sierra Bicycle Werks or Visalia Cyclery. The passionate guys and gals in the shop have tips on great places to bike. 


The craft beer scene in downtown might be a surprising place to shop for holiday cheer. But a growler, or crowler, from a favorite tap room like BarrelHouse Brewing Co, Brewbakers Brewing Co or The Planing Mill will have them believing there really is a Santa Claus. Not sure which brew to pick? Gift cards make great stocking stuffers.


Pet lovers looking for special treats for their puppers and kitty cats will find sweaters, leashes and play toys at Pet Envy. Upgrade your pet’s feeding bowl or pet collars. We love these bright and fun ones from Pacific Treasures.


Hip and charming, casual and formal. You choose. We love the beanies and cozy socks from Letter and Grain


A sparkly dress from Envie will make the season (and you!) bright. Good things come in small packages, and the cosmetic bags filled with treats for pampering from Joshua Tree are top of our list. 


And don’t forget the Visalia Mall. It's local too, providing local jobs and collecting sales tax. But that's not the only reason to shop at the Mall. Check out the special deals being offering this season. Did you know they offer curbside pick-up? This is super convenient and socially distant so you can shop with confidence. One stop and you can get something for everyone on your list. 


Nothing says "I love you" more than time spent together. Parents know that they really only have 18 summers with their children before they become adults, go off to college, and get jobs. You can read our "Gift of Travel" blog that talks a little more about that. To help encourage traveling together, we have a special offer: a $75 gas card when you book on our website to stay 2 nights here in Visalia. And it's good until March 31, 2021. Happy Holidays!
