Colorado is filled with unique, inspiring products made by our friends and neighbors. Support local, small businesses by buying direct from these makers. From online shops to local handmade markets, it’s easy to find a Colorado-proud product you’re looking for. These are my seven favorite made-in-Colorado products.
Artifact Uprising Instagram books
These books are just what you need to get all those precious iPhone photos off your phone and into an album! Perfect for snap-happy, on the go folks, you can upload photos from your phone into their app and get your book printed in a flash! They’re based in Denver.
Chocolove chocolate bars
This Boulder-based company makes amazing dark chocolate bars. The Almonds and Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate is my personal favorite, but there are 23 other decadent Chocolove flavors. It’s an easy treat to pick up at the store and the perfect way to take advantage of the antioxidants in dark chocolate!
Clean Getaway soap
These small-bath soaps are made in Denver and smell fantastic. I personally love the Mahalo scent, which smells like vacation! The Clean Getaway folks are present at many summer markets, or you can shop their website.
Mile High Spirits Fireside Whiskey
Mile High Spirits distillery and bar is located in the Rino neighborhood of Denver. My husband loves their Fireside Whiskey; at only $23, it’s a steal! They also sell their own rum, vodka and gin.
Oh, Sweet Joy! headbands
Kim is a adorable local blogger who also makes these darling headbands! I have one in a dark hunter green and it goes with everything. Perfect to dress up your hair on a potentially bad hair day! She’s based in Boulder and will ship anywhere!
Pressery fresh-pressed juices
I first found these refreshing juices last summer at the Cherry Creek Farmer’s Market. They quickly became a weekly treat; the green chia blend is my go-to on hot summer days. The juices are now available at the Boulder and Cherry Creek Whole Foods/
Tuffy Kickshaw popcorn
I’m warning you now, this snack is addicting. The Tuffy Kickshaw Whiskey ‘n Brown Butter flavor is made with Stranahan’s Whiskey (another Colorado native)! I bought a few bags of these for gifts over the holidays and managed to eat them all by myself. Whoops!
