Colorado Gift Ideas
Whether you are visiting the beautiful state of Colorado or living there, there are many fantastic souvenir and gift ideas available. With so many national and state parks, sprawling urban areas and quaint little towns, you are bound to find a gift that meets your needs. Here are three gift ideas for any occasion.
One interesting idea is to find a place that sells Colorado gift baskets. These baskets are beautifully put together and each reflects a theme specific to the state. These themes include the Rocky Mountains, Colorado backcountry and snowfall. All include locally sourced products made in the state of Colorado. This is a great option if you want to diversify the types of items you are giving as a gift.
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
Few stores or restaurants are as authentically Colorado as the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. They originally started up in Durango, CO, in 1981. Now there are branches across the United States as well as in several other countries internationally. Wouldn’t it be awesome, however, to buy your chocolate in the state they originated in? Whether you’re looking for a caramel apple, a box of truffles or smores on a stick, their stores have it all.
Another staple of gift giving, especially in souvenir gifts, is clothing. Nothing is more iconic that Colorado’s flag. The yellow circle in the middle represents the sunshine, which is so plentiful. The red “C” stands for the reddish earth, the center white stripe represents the abundant snow and the horizontal blue stripes represent the sky. Flag clothing and accessories are very popular in Colorado. Pick up a pair of socks, a sweatshirt, a hat or a backpack, and show your Colorado pride.
Whatever your tastes, there is something for everyone in the State. Try one of these ideas and give an iconic Colorado gift.
