With only a handful of days before Christmas, Amazon, UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service aren’t going to be able to help fill in those last-minute gift ideas. Now is the time to mask-up and support your local businesses!
In a year where “stay at home” became “work from home” and “shop from home,” many of your favorite local retailers and restaurants have felt the pinch. With holiday gift giving upon us, now is a great time to support local businesses while picking up some truly unique gifts and stocking stuffers.
Diamond Peak Mountain Sports is stocked up for winter. Their selection of soft goods is very robust, and everyone on your list could use a new pair of gloves or some new ski socks. On the hard goods side of things, new skis and snowboards are arriving daily, and those mountain bikes that sold out everywhere when the pandemic hit are finally back in stock.
When the snow finally gets here and resorts start to fill up, many people may consider avoiding the crowds by hitting the local backcountry for fresh lines. Diamond Peak should be your first stop as they offer up-to-the-minute local expertise and can advise you on the best areas to explore based on the day’s avalanche forecast.
Some of the best stocking stuffers around can be found at Simply Eden. Check out their new line of solid shampoos and conditioners, or their new natural deodorants. All come in in unique biodegradable packaging as part of Simply Eden’s efforts to sustainably support the community.
You’ll also find Christmas scented soaps in scents like Winter Wonderland, Spiced Wassail, and Fraiser Forest. And pick up a few Grinch bath bombs for anyone who needs to have their heart grow three sizes.
Looking for the perfect luxury gift for that special someone with discerning taste? New World Distillery crafts spirits with above top-shelf quality and bold taste. You don’t have to take our word for it. Just before the world went crazy in 2020, New World Distillery won Silver at the Sunset Magazine International Spirits Competition and was featured in Forbes magazine.
New World Distillery can also assemble amazing gift packages featuring their spirits and liqueurs with perfectly matched bitters, mixers, specialty glassware and more.
If you’re looking for more experience-based gifts, pop into Compass Rose Lodge and schedule a family get-together in one of the new tipis, or a telescope star tour once the pandemic subsides.
