So we thought it was high time that we pull together a list of our top 11 Denver Gifts. They're 100% made in Denver and range from iconic jam to screenprinted tea towels and a deck of 14er playing cards!

We also have four gift baskets that are filled exclusively with Denver-made products. Learn more about our Denver Gift Baskets here, if you're in the market for a great gift that makes it easy to share the best of Denver!

Now let's talk about our favorite Denver-made products!

1. Chile Crunch

Uniquely spicy and savory, think of this is a super flavorful hot sauce flecked with golden bits of crispy fried garlic. Our top two ways to use Chile Crunch: topping avocado toast, or spooned over hummus and enjoyed via dipping veggies and pita chips. Gift collections that include Chile Crunch.

 2. Red Camper Whiskey Peach Deliciousness

This iconic Denver-made jam is always a customer favorite. It's made with Paonia peaches and flecked with real vanilla bean seeds, scented with bitter almond and locally distilled whiskey. Don't miss out on this one! Shop collections that include Deliciousness.

 3. Counter Couture Tea Towel & 4. Peak Playing Cards

These two are both well designed, high quality products that make for ideal Colorado souvenirs or keepsakes. The Peak Playing Cards feature a cool graphic representation of each 14er in Colorado, and the tea towel shows where your heart is in 100% cotton. They're paired together in our I Love Colorado Box (alongside our Colorado mug), and also available in small boutique shops around Denver.

5. Black Squirrel Deluxe Granola

This granola really is deluxe - it's packed with the good stuff rather than filler: nuts, real maple syrup, and coconut oil. It's just as good as a snack directly from the bag, as it is in a bowl with milk or yogurt. You know it's good when it's on the room service menu at the Four Seasons Denver! Available in these gift boxes, or directly via the Black Squirrel website.

6. Hand-Painted Chocolate by Veree Chocolate

These unique chocolates are so lovely. They're solid, smooth dark chocolate mini-bars, each painted or splattered with a beautiful abstract pattern. They always make a good impression, and of course they taste delicious too! Available in these boxes, and also in small boutiques around Denver.

7. Helliemae's Sea Salt Caramels

Truly addictive -- you can't beat the combination of butter, sugar, and salt. They're deeply caramelized for a hint of sophisticated bitterness. Available in a box and a smaller satchel (pictured below). This is one of our most requested products, and it's no wonder why. Available in these gift baskets, or in a myriad of packaging options & flavors via Helliemae's website directly

8. Jojo's Green Chile Sriracha

This flavorful hot sauce shows off some of Colorado's best! It features a blend of local jalapenos, poblanos, and ahaheim chiles. Bright, tangy, and very flavorful - we've become big fans of this stuff! Available in these Colorado Gift Baskets, or directly via Jojo's website.

The Botanical Facial Steam is packed with colorful blend of flowers and herbs - it's like a detoxifying sauna for your face.
