FOR HER
Pepperberry Knits Flower Pattern

For the knitter on your list, this cute, chunky flower pattern ($4) makes for the perfect DIY present.

FOR HIM
Cloud 9 Brewery Pinup Porter

Boise's first nanopub has some cool beers abrewing, but for gift-giving, we suggest their Pinup Porter. Roasted caramel and chocolate notes make for a satisfying sip.

FOR KIDS
Bee Wise Bean Bag Toss Game

Perfect your kid's throwing arm with this sweet handsewn bean bag toss game ($20).

FOR HOME
Sedum Terrarium Bottle
Bring some greenery to your space while reusing an old wine bottle. Sedum's Terrarium ($38) is reminscent of a ship in a bottle, but hipper.

FOR THE HOST
neCeramics Little Cream & Sugar Set

We love the handmade feel of this charming cream & sugar set ($34), from the organic form to the sweet script.

FOR STOCKINGS
Puur Lemonade Lip Scrub

Winter is the season to scrub that dead skin away, and lips are no different. We love Puur's all natural lemonade scented lip scrub ($5) for getting the perfect pucker.
