shopped, schlepped, and dragged 
to find swoon-worthy swag
So 
if you like playing Santa 
or maybe his missus 
we offer these pages 
with love and, yes, kisses
our favorite goods from Colorado and yon
it’s the holiday guide...
now get your gift on!

Behold, the hands-down coolest gift guide for every type, from the nester to the kid at heart! And in case you missed it, Colorado Homes & Lifestyles' Ultimate Gift Guide creators Rebecca Gart (Editor at Large) and Eliza Karlson (Market Editor) visited Colorado's Best on Colorado's Own Channel 2 KWGN-TV to share these ideas with Coloradans and beyond. Check out the video and the gift guide below!

THE ULTIMATE GIFT GUIDE 2016:

FOR THE NESTER:

How about BirdProject Soap, the gift that gives? Inside each black bird-shaped soap is a smaller white ceramic bird, which is eventually freed by the daily act of washing your hands. The company donates 10 percent of its profits to the environmental cleanup and care of animals affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. $28; birdprojectsoap.bigcartel.com

FOR THE COLORADAN:

Rebecca Gart, our Editor at Large, shares her thoughts on this guitar: "A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, and a lot of cool. I simply adore this guitar that artist Todd Perkins has revamped into a piece of art. I’d put it in my office and daydream about the Telluride Bluegrass Fest." Also available in other Colorado and Denver themes; $750; Show of Hands, Denver, showofhandsdenver.com
