Gifts Inspired by the Rain

It’s ultra rare for snow to fall in Portland. Instead, we have these heavy downpours that require rainboots and hooded jackets… and, dare I say it, umbrellas. And if you haven’t already heard, Portlanders don’t use umbrellas. Pride aside, this December weather is downright disgusting. Thus it is time for the umbrella. And if you must sport an umbrella, it needs to be a chic one.

For all of the sloppy wet days that make me gripe, I thought it would be fun to bring you a gift guide inspired by Portland’s most predictable friend.
