DonkeyGirl Ombre Tank

We're obsessed with ombre. This dip-dyed silk charmeuse tank from Missoula-based DonkeyGirl ($48) is so on trend right now.

Hans Bagworks Bicycle Handlebar Bag

Made from durable oil cloth in a rainbow of options, we love this handlebar sack ($32 and up) as a way to add some baggage capability to your bike.

GEO Onesies and Hats

Parade your hometown pride by wearing your state on your sleeve (or hat, or chest) with GEO customizable apparel ($18 and up). And parents, there's adult sizes, too!

Loredemer State Love Art

And if on your sleeve isn't enough, display your state pride on your walls with the cool tie dye hues of Bozeman-based Loredemer's State Love canvases ($35 and up).

Angle 33 Wine and Coaster Set

Pop these concrete bottle and beverage coasters ($19.99) in the freezer, and when you're set to serve, the bottle and glasses stay chilled and save your table from a wet mess.

Eme Handmade Drink Cozies

We mustache you a question, is your coffee sleeve this cute? If the answer is no, we suggest these dapper drink cozies from Eme Handmade ($12).

West Paw Eco Nap Pet Bed

These Bozeman-made pet beds ($29 and up) are not only cute, but they're constructed from fabric made of recycled plastic bottles.
