If you’re currently living in a carefully-crafted Shea Homes® community — or are ready to make the jump — then we already know that you have excellent taste. With the holidays about to arrive, you probably want to show your loved ones how much you care about them in a way that feels uniquely you — and uniquely Colorado! Read on for a list of stocking stuffer ideas for the iconoclasts, the trendsetters, and the epicures.
Beanies, Cowls and Knits - Smeeny Made Wild
Since 2018, Cheereen Leong Schwarz has lovingly knitted each and every one of the beanies that she sells out of her Steamboat Springs studio. Each cozy Smeeny Made Wild hat is made out of the highest-quality ethically-produced wool available, and is colored with eco-friendly dyes. Once you’ve selected the perfect pattern — and you’ll find a lot of gorgeous options to choose from — be sure to add a matching mini-beanie Christmas ornament to your cart.
Socks – Phoenix Fiber Mill
Each Phoenix Fiber Mill sock is woven with the unique qualities of its yarn in mind. After moving to Colorado from California, Phoenix Fiber Mill proprietors Karen and Mike fell in love with fluffy alpacas — and their business and family blossomed. Today Karen and Mike weave functional socks alongside their twelve children that are sure to keep you warm and toasty during any activities without sacrificing an ounce of decadence. We think the Snowmass pattern is particularly darling!
Nail Polish – Base Coat
Standard nail polishes are full of chemicals that make them toxic — not to mention smelly. Basecoat founder Tran Wills has worked hard to develop clean formulas that are free of the 21 most harmful ingredients often found in nail polishes. If you’ve tried other natural nail polishes and have been left wanting, Base Coat’s gorgeous, saturated, and long-lasting colors are sure to win you back.
Clean-Ingredient Soaps – Mountain Time Soap
Is soap a strange thing to leave in a stocking? Not when it’s made without hardening agents, fillers, and artificial dyes. Mountain Time Soap is truly the good stuff, and is available in boutique scents like Clove + Oat — plus it’s packed full of natural clay and skin-friendly essential oils. You may even be tempted to hide it away before the guests arrive, but they’re sure to love it just as much as you do.
Soda Syrup and Mixers – Backyard Bev Co.
Prepared in small batches with locally-sourced flavors, Backyard Bev Company’s soda syrups make whipping up gourmet drinks a total breeze – just add fizzy water or spirits. With fruit and coffee-forward syrups available, anyone lucky enough to be gifted a bottle of this syrup will immediately transform into a star mixologist — especially with the help of Backyard Bev Co’s robust archive of drink recipes. Get ready for top-notch cocktails all season long!
