Fancy Holiday Gift Guide Part II

In this week's installment of the Fancy Holiday Gift Guide we are focusing on gift ideas that are from local designers here in town in celebration of this year's Holiday Handmade starting this evening. There are so many benefits to buying locally made goods, first off you are supporting your local creative community, you can find truly unique gifts for those on your list and finally you'll be keeping your money in the local community.

First up is a Fancy Tiger original creation, the walnut belt buckle. This simple belt buckle is sure to be a hit with anyone on your list. You can pair it with a black or brown belt both available at Fancy Tiger or pair it up with a favorite belt you already have.

Next up is something for the ladies on your list. Heavy Nesting has been a shop favorite of ours for a while. Sarah is the local lady behind this line of handmade bags. Check out her newest line of clutches made with an incredibly cool eco-felt from recycled plastic bottles. Her new design even incorporates movable pin-back buttons.

Our next featured locally made item is a true crowd pleaser, honestly it's hard to keep these in stock. Christa is the local designer behind Pistoli a line of accessories made from vintage type keys. Grab your initial or key of choice in the form of a pendant, a bracelet, ring, bobby pin, or for the men in you life choose from a tie tack or a set of cufflinks. 

Our final locally made gift idea is the ever popular bike spoke bracelet. Since we started carrying these a few months ago it's difficult to keep them in stock. They are great for those on your list who are in to cycling or up-cycling for that matter. 

If you are in the Denver area this evening make sure to stop by for the first night of Fancy Tiger's Holiday Handmade Craft Fair from 5pm-9pm this evening and 10am-4pm Saturday December 4th at the Sherman Events Center, 1770 Sherman Street. Remember to shop local this holiday season and make sure to check back for next week's installment of the Fancy Holiday Gift Guide when we'll be focusing on gifts for him.

Happy Holiday Shopping!
