Gifts 2010

It’s been said before that Boulder has something for everyone, and during the holidays, it’s easy to see just how true that is. Just take a peek at the wide array of holiday-themed theatre productions, or all of the delicious seasonal selections at your favorite local restaurants (and breweries!). And when it comes to holiday gifts, you really couldn’t pick a better place to shop locally. That’s why in the coming weeks, Boulder Weekly will be highlighting some of the great shops right here in our community.

Whether you have an avid climber on your list or a hardcore music-lover, you don’t have to troll the Web for a great gift — or a good deal. There are plenty of merchants offering unique gifts along with good old-fashioned customer service. Even better, shopping locally is like giving two gifts in one: one to your good little boys and girls, and one to your city. That’s because every penny spent locally makes our economy that much stronger.

This week we present the first of our two Gift Guides (look for the second one to hit racks on Dec. 9). In it, you’ll find a treasure-trove of local shops offering the perfect present for everyone on your list, whether that means a new pair of climbing shoes or guitar lessons.

From everyone here at Boulder Weekly, warm wishes and happy holidays!

never been famous for barbeque until now! And last summer, Merry Ann and
Tracy opened another Rib House in downtown Boulder, at One Boulder
Plaza. Stop by for the very best BBQ in Colorado, from a great locally

Forget the fruitcake. Try giving a gift basket instead. Like
fruitcakes, they’re a universal holiday gift. But unlike fruitcakes,
people are actually happy to receive them. Colorado in a Basket has been
busy creating gourmet and custom gift baskets since 1984. As a
family-owned business, we find the finest Colorado products for our
baskets and carry a wide assortment of goodies and gift items. To
enhance your choices, we are now offering a larger variety of basket
options. We can customize a basket to fit any need or special request,
including dietary restrictions. Individual items can be added to any
basket to truly personalize your gift. Contact us at 303-664-1401 or
check us out at ColoradoBaskets.com — for a holiday gift sure to be a
hit!
