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.

It's amazing the treasures one finds when one slows down to take an old pup out for daily slow walks. Having been up in Aspen for 5 years, I forgot about this old Fairview Cemetery that Loki guided me to where I discovered Merino Fiou: Merino Bruno Fiou, AKA “Mr. Basalt”, born July 29, 1940 in Glenwood Springs and died March 6, 2011 at Valley View Hospital.This from the Aspen Times: A constant staple of the Town of Basalt, Merino was always on the search for a treasure that few of us cherished. He had a love of hats and was always seen wearing a different one. He walked many miles each day back and forth into town.Many local merchants of different stores knew him by name. Merino was very proud of his money jar that he accumulated by turning in his aluminum cans that he collected. Merino had many jobs throughout the years including trash pickup and working at Two Rivers Cafe washing dishes. He liked to help out wherever needed, even volunteering when they built the playground. Merino was very fond of River Days and loved to listen to the music in town. With a constant smile on his face, he was very friendly and never knew a stranger. Merino loved the annual yard sale at his house, looked forward to sifting through all the stuff, he found a treasure in things that other people threw out.Did anyone know Merino?#iseenya#mrbasalt#coolcemeteries ...
