Is it just us or does it feel like the holiday season completely snuck up on everyone? With Thanksgiving landing so late in November this year, we lost that work week we usually get between Thanksgiving and December 1. We’ve put together a list of great Colorado sourced gift options for everyone on your list. By the way, we do this every year and our previous lists might be helpful as well:
This family run business is infamous among locals here in Colorado Springs for delivering freshly baked, delicious cookies in an actual Sasquatch costume. Want to send some love to your aunt in California? Sasquatch Cookies also ships nationally.

Do you have someone on your list who loves spending time on the Colorado slopes every winter? Give them a piece of artwork that will remind them of their favorite resort. You can customize the background and text colors. They also offer adorable mugs, t shirts and more.
The foodie on your gift list will love a tour with Rocky Mountain Food Tours. Their flagship “Original Colorado Springs Food Tour” visits some of the top local food destinations and enjoys 8-10 tastings from local chefs. Drink pairings are available at an additional cost.
This locally owned and operated business can put together a gorgeous gift basket for any occasion. You can choose a theme and let them select the contents, or you can customize to the recipient’s preferences. They can deliver locally or ship out of state.
Have you had a chance to check out this (fairly new) bar in Colorado Springs? It’s a fun activity for a date night or group where participants throw axes at a target. Sort of like darts but on steroids! A gift card to Bad Axe Throwing would be a fun idea for anyone on your list.
These adorable Colorado ornaments are created from Aspen trees right here in Colorado. Elevation Creations is a family run business out of Castle Rock. 18 year old Brendan is taking a gap year between high school and college to hone his woodworking skills and creates all of the shop’s products.
It doesn’t get more locally sourced than a gift that you make with your own two hands. The folks at A&R Workshop in Northgate can guide you through projects ranging from painted wooden signs and cozy blankets to lanterns and checkerboard sets.
This is for the avid hiker on your list. The unique piece of artwork features all 58 of Colorado’s 14’ers (peaks over 14,000 peaks) and allows the owner to track every peak they’ve climbed. Peak to Peak Scratchoff is based out of Fountain and they also offer similar artwork to track national parks.
Ladyfingers Letterpress is owned and operated by the wife and wife team of Morgan and Arley-Rose. They design and print gorgeous stationary and artwork at their studio and shop on East Bijou. Stop by their shop to pick up gifts or order online. They also offer workshops for customers wanting to hone their own design skills.
Pikes Peak Lemonade Co. is a staple on North Tejon. They are known for their delicious lemonade made from organic and fresh ingredients. For the kiddos on your list? Give them a gift card (e-gift cards are available) to enjoy a lemonade in the signature mason jar. For the adults? Give them a delicious drink mixer or three (Pink Grapefruit Mojito, anyone?).
