12 Uniquely Colorado Gifts

Posted on October 30, 2016 by Sarah Welle | 0 Comments

Our team is always discovering fresh new products being made in Colorado today. We love pulling together our annual Colorado Gift Guide to share some of our favorites.

For our winter 2016 Colorado Gift Guide, we're excited about a few ceramists, handmade decor, bags, hats, and clothing created from all natural materials, bold minimal jewelry, mountain art prints, and much more.

(1) Letterpress Cards, by Brylo Studios

Based in Longmont, CO, Chaz has been quickly making a name for herself with her thoughtfully designed letterpress cards. Simple, heartfelt sentiments paired with organically inspired graphics make her work special.

Browse all her collections here.


(2) I Love Colorado Gift Box, by Colorado Crafted

We normally create boxes filled with artisan-made foods from around Colorado (check them all out here), but we're pretty excited about this new collection we've pulled together. Each of these keepsake items is designed by a different Colorado-based endeavor, and each shows off how much we love our state. View it here.

(3) Welcome to the Rockies Pennant, by Yore

A modern general store filled with practical, well-made goods for every day life. We're especially partial to the Colorado banners they've commissioned. Available online or in their brick & mortar on Main St in Longmont. 


(4) Dream Catcher by Uccellino Designs

This maker creates unique handmade children's toys, decorations, and gifts. An emphasis on natural materials such as cotton, wood, and wool make each creation special.  We love the colors and form of this dream catcher, but there are some really interesting wall hangings available on her Etsy shop, too.


(5) Royal Stag Hats

We're so impressed by these handmade hats, out of Boulder. Each hat is made with meticulous attention to detail using felt, wool, and leather. This small family run business makes use of classic hat making tools to churn out custom designs as well as popular classics like the Fedora, Homburg, and Derby. 



(6) Eli & Barry

This brand is all about strong, minimal jewelry that is an expression of the founder Lily's personal aesthetic. If you're a fan of simplicity and pieces that can be worn time and time again, look no further. 


(7) Ceramics by Liz Quan

Liz loves to build and create things and has worked many mediums over time, but her current focus is ceramics. In 2005 she relocated to Boulder from NYC to pursue a post baccalaureate in ceramics at University of Colorado. Her studio today is in Boulder, and she's creating some gorgeous and inventive ceramics there. We love this vase, but don't miss the jewelry and pendant lights.


(8) Over the Fence

This line of handmade bags and baby wear is really cute! We especially love selection of baby and toddler pants. The bags are more sophisticated, of course, and each is made with interesting graphic fabric. Here's a link to the clutch pictured below. 



(9) Planters, by Fettle and Fire

Specializing in ceramics, especially in planters and mid-century forms, this little online shop is worth checking out. We swoon over planters too, especially ones like this. Love the wooden legs!


(10) GrOpener

This innovative bottle opener was created by Mark, an applied artist from Denver. It was inspired by the stick & screw openers Mark observed in Africa in the 1990s. This uniquely designed tool uses the same leverage principle, which allows the bottle to be opened with one hand. Available in many different colors.


(11) 14er Posters & Stickers

Colorado is bursting with amazing mountain peaks, and we all get especially excited about 14ers. We were delighted to discover this cool collection of prints & other items emblazoned with artistic renderings of Colorado peaks. 


(12) Mutts & Mittens

Handmade dog collars, leashes, and even super adorable dog ponchos can be found in this Colorado based shop. We love this one, but there are so many designs to choose from!
