Our Story

In 1991, longtime Everett, WA resident, Judy Matheson, founded J. Matheson Gifts with a purpose in mind: to create a product design resource featuring the most sought-after home accessories and personal gifts, and to offer the highest possible level of customer service. Located in downtown Everett, the family-run store became a valuable personal resource for a broad range of NW customers. J Matheson was proud to have been voted the best gift store in Snohomish County five years in a row.

In the Fall of 2022, Judy's daughter Miranda Matheson had a vision to create a fresh contemporary version of J Matheson reaching a broad demographic in the Seattle as well as offering an additional service to their long time loyal following.  Miranda brings her lifelong retail background and 15 years of working with top wholesale manufacturers in the gift and housewares industries to this exciting new endeavor. 

J Matheson Urban Gifts & Kitchen mission is to continue the outstanding J Matheson legacy through exceptional customer service and the very best product selection at the most competitive prices.
