Favorite Locally Made Christmas Gifts

With Christmas right around the corner, we're all on the hunt for the perfect gift for that someone special. Here at the Idaho Bucket List, we love to shop local but we realize that you may not have time to shop around. That's why we've made a list of our favorite Idaho-made goods that can be shipped straight to your front door!

Banana Ink - Where do we even start? Banana Ink's owner, Lana, is constantly coming out with creative, new ways to display your Idaho love. From hats and shirts to belts and bottle openers, we love it all and hope to own it all as well (hint, hint to the husband). Shop at their Etsy shop here!
Floating Horse Design - With skillful techniques passed down from his father, Floating Horse Designs owner, Scott makes stunning, hand-crafted antler earrings inlayed with turquoise, brass and copper. Named after his beautiful wife these Dakota Studs will surely please that special someone on your list. Start shopping here!

Ladybug Press  - This Boise based company is all about creating keepsakes. Using a vintage letterpress, the Ladybug Press creates greeting cards, notebooks, coasters and more. Need a custom piece? They've got you covered! They can help you design and print to fit your need. Shop their Etsy store here!
Fawn and Foal - Want to send your love to someone outside the beautiful state of Idaho? How about these adorable "Someone in Idaho loves me" shirts made by Fawn and Foal? They offer a variety of states but let's face it, Idaho is the best.  And if you're from the mid-west you will love their Idaho/Iowa shirt.  Shop their Etsy store here!

Beardface Supply Co  - Know someone who's pretty serious about their beard? Originally created to maintain his own beard, the Beardface Supply Company owner now offers his handmade products to help others in their fight against stray hairs and dry face. Shop their store here!
BeefWhip Candle Co - Keeping it local makes scents. With a variety of organic scents, BeefWhip candles are made to order and shipped right to your door. The fun-lovin' Boise couple, Beef and Whip combine their love for handmade goods and their passion for organic living to create the perfect gift for anyone on your list. Shop their store here!
Wear Boise  - Promoting long beards and the proper pronunciation of BOY-SEE, Wear Boise's slogan is "Don't just love your city, WEAR it". We just love seeing our followers wearing Idaho gear! Shop their store here!

Bricolage - A shop full of adorable locally made products like Bricolage is right up our alley but  our favorite thing from their online shop is the wooden Idaho ornaments. Nothing spreads Christmas cheer like hanging an ornament that says "IdaHo-Ho-Ho"! Shop their store here!

Week 5 of the 12 Weeks of Summer

Week 5 - Buhl Sagebrush Days
Crafts and food vendors will be at the Eastman Park all day long and if you're looking for a way to beat the heat, the Buhl City Pool offers free swimming for all the entire day. As the sun sets and anticipation of the fireworks grows you'll want to find your way to the north side of Popplewell Elementary School before they start the annual Oregon Trail anvil firing at dusk. Soon after the Sagebrush Days fireworks display will fill the sky with brightly colored symmetrical sparks followed by the ooos and ahhs of the crook-necked patrons below.
