Show Your Colorado Love With These 10 Gift Ideas

You don’t have to live in Colorado to LOVE Colorado! There is so much to do and enjoy in our amazing state (which we think is the best!).

In honor of all those souls who are touched by this land, we offer a few suggestions for gift ideas that show our Colorado-Love.

GRIN BIG MOUNTAIN LIFE TEES
by Gary Blehm

When life is unfair…GRIN BIG!

Gary, a long-time resident of Colorado Springs, loves to spread his message of positivity in the midst of frustration through his art. He is the originator of Penman, created in his childhood and rose to fame in the 90s. Penman, once relegated to comic strips across the country, has now jumped off the pages of paper and onto a larger stage to spread his optimism and life outdoors.

Grin Big offers tees for men and women, showing Penman in a variety of mountain activity settings. A great way to share your optimism and love of Colorado!

While browsing through a local boutique, MacKenzie & West, I stumbled upon these fun finds by Blu Bottle!

And for the mountain biking enthusiasts, the mountains with bike bottle fits perfectly in the beverage holder. These containers can hold hot or cold beverages (you know, like a hot cocoa for after a run down the slopes, or refreshing lemonade while exploring backcountry trails!)
