DCUK Wooden Ducks

These adorable little ducks are the perfect addition to any gardener or nature lover’s home. Every DCUK original is hand carved from bamboo root and carefully painted individually, making each one unique. Arriving with their own name tag, the DCUK Pin is added to each character who passes their smile and quality tests!


Wacky Plant Accessories

For some people, a simple gnome just won’t cut it. But don’t worry! We’ve got all kinds of plant décor from the traditional to the off the wall. Why not spruce up your plants with some zombies, Sasquatch or even rap superstar Snoop Dogg! These would make great stocking stuffers for the unique gardener in your life.


Weather Forecasting Gnome

A weather forecasting gnome? You bet your toadstool! Place him in the garden along with his tiny wooden sign and be the first to know when there’s rain, sun, or snow. Here’s a key:

Counter Couture

Looking for a locally made gift this year? This Colorado company was one of our favorite new discoveries. We love Counter Couture’s beautiful hand-screen printed images, each of which starts as a pen and paper illustration drawn in their Denver studio. Founders Kaelin and Richard say they started Counter Couture “To live a simple, fulfilling, and creative life with a wee bit of silly thrown in for fun.” What more could you want!




Seed & Sprout Gardening Tools

Just because you’re digging in the dirt, doesn’t mean you can’t do it style! These trendy garden tools from Seed & Sprout are as fashionable as they are functional. Made from durable aluminum alloy, these tools kits come in four colors Moonlight Rose, Wildflower, Iris Hour and Sweet Basil. Perfect for any flower fashionista!

Farmers Defense Sleeves

Farmers Sleeves offer unparalleled protection of arms and skin for any farmer, gardener, or outdoor worker. Say goodbye to irritated skin and sunburns in the garden. These Farmers Sleeves are made from REPREVE® eco-dynamic fabric, made from recycled materials, with moisture-wicking qualities that keep you cool and dry.

Katherine Homes Hats

Another local maker, Katherine Homes is an environmental activist, artist, musician, and now entrepreneur. After many years in the non-profit sector, she started her brand to bring awareness to threatened species and wildlands through affordable and functional art. Her aim is to inspire others to explore, connect, and protect the wild. We just loved Katherine’s beautiful watercolor designs. These hats would be perfect for an afternoon in the garden, a hike, or camping in the great Rocky Mountains.



Local Honey

Bee Squared Apiaries is a small beekeeping operation located in Berthoud, CO. They have 125 hives in various locations in Weld, Larimer, and Boulder counties. Bee Squared not only has delicious local raw honey but some truly mouth-watering specialty flavors. Try their Saffron-Vanilla, chili pepper-infused Sweet Heat, Espresso, or their Good Food Award Winning Whiskey Barrel Aged Honey. Yum!
