TOP GIFT TRENDS: Christmas is less than a week away, which means it's the final marathon mile for shopping.
I've turned to Downtown Portland's stylist and shopping guru Kevin Lennox for gift trend tips, all of which can be found downtown too. That way you'll only have to park once, and you can check out Downtown Portland's yarn-bombing arts campaign while you're at it. Hopefully this makes shopping for your mom/cousin/brother a little easier. For even more ideas, Kevin's been stocking the Downtown Portland Pinterest page with tons of cool finds. Check it out here http://www.pinterest.com/downtownpdx/.
