Looking for a gift that is unique to Colorado? We've rounded up some of our very favorite locally made products in this gift guide. From handmade leather goods to a collection of Colorado chocolate, this is some of the best stuff coming out of Colorado's artisanal scene.



    La Balmba Rosa Healing Rose Balm

    This silky pink balm, by RL Linden (from $9) is so versatile and luxurious. It's a semi-gloss balm, because it adds more moisture than a gloss and more shine than a balm. Wear it alone on your lips, or use it to moisturize cuticles and dry patches.



    The Wrap Wallet

    Wrap Wallet by Stitch & HammerThe Wrap Wallet ($68) is made by small leather shop Stitch & Hammer out of Boulder. It hand-cut and dyed, which means each wallet is completely individual. Variations in color, grain, and character make this gorgeous wallet an heirloom quality piece. [No Longer for Sale]

    Distant Correspondent's Debut Album
