Favorite Gifts to Give: Staff Picks

The minds behind Colorado Homes & Lifestyles share their go-to gifts for the holiday season.

I have three kids, so I buy a lot of teacher gifts during the holidays. My favorite gift for the faculty is a personalized Kate Spade Thermal Mug ($18) for the women, and a personalized Corksicle Canteen ($19.95) for the men. At Swoozie’s, Denver, swoozies.com

— Rebecca Gart, Editor at Large


I love giving fun kitchen items that celebrate where we live. Denver 1 Cutting Board by Anderson Design Group; $35; at Wish Gifts, Denver, wishgiftsdenver.com

— Amy Watkins, Advertising Director


Anthropologie’s Inside Out Nut Bowls are a fun gift for any kitchen—great for ingredients, snacks or stacking. $10 each, anthropologie.com

— Vanessa De La Rosa, Digital Editor


The holidays aren’t complete without a proper toast. Laws Whiskey’s Four Grain Straight Bourbon is a great addition to any bar cart, and it’s packaged in a beautiful keepsake bottle. Laws Whiskey House, Denver, lawswhiskeyhouse.com

— Michelle Johnson, Associate Editor


My favorite gift to give is a Square Print Set from Artifact Uprising. The quality is beautiful, and you can download from your Instagram feed. $21.99; Artifact Uprising, Denver, artifactuprising.com

— Eliza Karlson, Market Editor


Besides baking homemade cranberry bread for my sweet neighbors, I love giving the gift of art. I adore these historic ski prints and vintage magazine covers in rustic, authentic frames, handmade in Colorado. $28-$165; at Rare Finds, Denver, rare-finds.com 

— Holly Scott, Publisher


I find the hyper-consumeristic vibe of the holiday season stressful. Rather than giving loved ones another thing to clutter their lives, I prefer to give the gift of experience. This year I’m giving an annual membership to the Denver Botanic Gardens. $55, botanicgardens.org

— Mark Lesh, Art Director
