If you're searching for the perfect gift for a Colorado kid, we've rounded up some of the best options in this guide. We've focused on featuring cool products made by small local businesses and artists, which we think makes for the most special type of gift!
1. Zio Kids
Husband and wife team Chris and Sarah started Zio Kids with the idea of making original, unique art and clothing geared towards kids. Chris had experience in design and illustration, while Sarah loves art and had business experience (she also owns a jewelry business)! We love their whimsical designs, and we think you will too!
2. How Birds Sleep
Another book pick, this one by Denver based artist/writer duo Sarah Pedry and David Obuchowski. Gorgeously illustrated, this book is perfect for bedtime reading and young nature lovers. Written in a witty, conversational voice, this picture book is bursting with interesting facts about the mysterious hidden aspects of bird life all around us.
