Utah Holiday Gift Guide 2018

We’re sharing our collection of Utah-made gift ideas for your friends and family that support our local economy. During this heavy shopping season we love the opportunity to #buylocal and it’s rewarding to see so many Utah born companies creating eco-chic products.

Cozy Earth Bedding: Premium Bamboo Bedding

Cozy Earth Bedding Organic Sheets

Okay in complete transparency we haven’t tried these first hand, but they are absolutely on our Christmas wish list. Having an inviting sleep sanctuary is a must in our home and these sheets are made of bamboo, making them both soft and effective in regulating body temp - a big need in our house. We love the overall look and tone of this brand and hope they continue to do amazing things. Shop now

Ritual Chocolate: Crafted, Bean to Bar ChocolateDark Chocolate Made in Utah

If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life it would 100% be chocolate, but not just any chocolate - the strong, smooth and rich variety. Ritual has captured that in their small batch bean-to-bar offerings. I love a good dark chocolate and these are truly exceptional in their smooth, yet rich flavor that eliminates the bitterness often associated with a 80%+ cocoa bar. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a chocolate tasting event ;) Buy Ritual Chocolate

Made Handbags

Handmade local handbags with a cause

Jason’s product design company Klugonyx has collaborated with Choose Made founder and top-tier seamstress Sarah on multiple projects and got to know her as a person and designer. She’s talented and similar to the Dorai team in being purpose driven. We love the creativity and style in her Made handbags and pillows, who doesn’t want a unique piece within their home with a story behind it? Not only are you getting handmade, Sarah donates 5% of purchases to refugee resettlement - how rewarding is that? Shop Made

The Soap Lady

Bath Bomb Gift made in Utah

We don’t know the lady, but we know her soap quite well. They are often on display in our favorite local grocery store, where they look and smell delicious with fun colors and unique infusions. These make great stocking stuffers but are also a nice treat for yourself. In battling a lingering cold recently I used the Eucalyptus bath bomb to help clear the chest and aid in muscle soreness. We purchase these at Harmons (our favorite local grocer!)

Olio Skin Care

Natural skincare made in Utah

Let’s face it, Utah is dry. Combine that with changing seasons and your skin can suffer. Allysa turned us on to this company because of their natural, healthy ingredients and the efficacy of their solutions. Skin care is individualized but we believe you shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t put in it, and these guys have built their brand on that philosophy. Shop Olio
