Meaningful Holiday Gifts

Five more meaningful ideas for stocking stuffers that will make you feel happy purchasing for your friends and loved ones.

The other night I had the luxury of shopping for the holidays…ALONE! It was 7:00pm and not much was open but between RADIO BOARDSHOP and THE UTE MOUNTAINEER, I accomplished a lot but SHHHHHHH! Don’t tell the boys.

1. If you are looking for somebody with the power of conviction than track down Travis McLain, a Partner at Radio Boardshop, and he’ll get you on track. Ask him to show you his limited edition “I Slash Pow” T-Shirts and Colorado Radio stickers. Kids love feeling as though they are part of anything exclusive.

2. For stocking stuffers for your mountain-man, or woman, visit The Ute Mountaineer. They have all kinds of intriguing items that you never knew you needed from beer openers with a purpose to insulated life-saving blankets. Let the sales people working there help you, you’ll get a mini-education on useful tools for the great outdoors.

3. After indulging on the splendors of holiday parties, many will appreciate the gift of re-defining those muscle tones by purchasing a gift certificate for Fitness and Nutrition Services with Lisa Cohen. Lisa can be reached at 970-379-5912 or

4. How about giving the gift of photography by purchasing a gift certificate toward a family portrait with Michele Cardamone Photography. Michele can be reached at 970-379-9122 or (and yes, that’s my Tuck Tuck).

5. Get the the gift that gives twice. The 1:Face Watch, a timepiece with a humanitarian heart, empowers consumers to support one of six global causes with every purchase: Hunger, cancer, water, the environment, AIDS, and breast cancer. Working with charities like One Days Wages and Charity Water, each purchase fulfills a charity-specific metric. One Days Wages will provide food supplements to 16 children in the Horn of Africa for every white watch sold, while Charity: Water will build a well to support a village in Rwanda for every 625 yellow watches sold. Get the gift that keeps on giving right here.

How Nature Heals, A Story From #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at ...
