Denver Playgrounds and Parks Book

The Denver area boasts one of the largest urban park systems in the nation. In his brand-new guide book “Denver Playgrounds & Parks,” local author Chris Sekirnjak reviews 521 public playgrounds in the metro area. From Lakewood to Aurora and Thornton to Littleton, the book provides all the information you will need to plan your next park or play area visit: locations, facilities, equipment, photos, and ratings. Available on Amazon for $11.99, as well as on the Apple app store (free download). This book is the perfect stocking stuffer! For more information, go to


Mamas rejoice, Rowve has created a bag that not only looks great, but can handle the dirt, accidents, and moisture that sometimes (OK, often) wreak havoc on our lives and smells on cars, houses, etc. This bag is for the yogi who quickly throws her damp clothes and equipment in whatever she can find before picking the kids up at school. Rowve can handle the craziness of your day-to-day life, and best yet, is easy to clean. For the girlfriend you admire or maybe even a gift for yourself, this is great last minute pick. It’s waterproof, so think smelly ski clothes, hockey gear, ice skating essentials and everything else unpleasant this season. A mother and daughter run this company in Denver, making it even more darling. Use code MHM on the site to get 25% off.


Beeyond the Hive

Not only is this the oldest Colorado honey company, but it also holds one of the cleverest names we came across this season. If you are looking to give a cute and corky gift, Beeyond the Hive is one-stop-shop for everything silly and sweet. Products we recommend include the Raw Wildflower Honey and the entire line of Beeswax Melts. We also adore their lip balms, which make great stocking stuffers for your little ones, significant others, school teachers, you name it. Who doesn’t get chapped lips over break. And, we all know the positive buzz, pun intended, of the honey industry right now!


Be Hippy 

We love Be Hippy for their easy-going outlook and Colorado attitude. Their line of baby onesies and children’s baseball caps adorn some of the coolest kids on the block. Grab some Be Hippy gear for the kiddos in your life. With over 300 sunny days a year, we sure that these new duds are will be turning heads on the Rocky Mountain trails or at future little league games.


Onyx and Blush

Are you still trying to gather up a gift for the fashionista of your group? Try Onyx and Blush. This boutique brings today’s hottest jewelry and accessory trends straight from NYC directly to you. Their line of multi-colored tassel necklaces is ideal for the lovely ladies in your life. I was particularly impressed with the simple one, two and three charm bracelets that started at $40. They have such a statement, but are in no way ostentatious. I have a feeling the simple arrow I bought is going to be on trend for 2015. I also like that there are a multitude of settings on each piece for different neck and wrist sizes.


The Street Boutique

The Street Boutique notifies followers of its daily locations and upcoming events via social media, and is available for daytime office and salon stops so ladies can pop in to shop on the go.  Think Denver’s super cool food truck movement, but for clothes! The owner of this shop-on-wheels has stocked her truck full of last minute gifts. Check them out online to see where they are currently located. Aside from this being extremely convenient, their clothes are so cute and trendy. We recommend visiting The Street Boutique in the new year. That way you can use your money from returns to get a really fun outfit.


Grasshaven Outdoor

And don’t think for a second that we forgot the Mile High Dads. Shopping for him is never easy or for a teenage guy, but Grasshaven Outdoor may have a solution. This super cool Colorado company is the marriage of outdoor living with an indoor feel. Their line of portable grills and barbequing tool sets are perfect for any for any tailgate, backyard party or camping excursion. Visit Grasshaven online or at their shop in Boulder. I actually picked up this grill for my husband two months ago. I thought he would love it for his winter fishing trips to warm the soup I made for him (ok, that part might not happen), or the kids might like to have a backyard s’mores fest over break and this is the perfect, ‘safer’ grill for families. Best part, it’s $49.99 and Grasshaven is running a 20% off between now and Christmas.
