Check out our curated Vermont-made gifts for any recipient you may want to buy a gift for, from couples getting married to wedding favors…even ideas for your furry friends. You can click to each maker’s website to buy from them directly. Also, shopping our guide supports local Vermont businesses!

Whenever you shop local, a small business owner does a happy dance.

When you buy from a local business, your neighbors (the people behind that business) benefit! Small businesses make up a large, important part of the Vermont economy and choosing to buy from them is a tangible way you can support our community.

What’s inside the Vermont gift guide?

Gift ideas for everyone on your list – all from local, Vermont businesses. Many of the featured businesses identify with at least one of the following: women-owned; minority owned; eco-conscious; certified-organic; family-owned.

To help you get started, we’ve organized gifts by common recipients. Of course, you can mix and match these ideas to best fit your crew, but we hope our selections will help get you started!

We’ve never seen another gift guide quite like this one! 

For one: everyone featured is a Vermont business, so it’s truly a celebration of our state. 

We also handpicked gifts for any wedding gift-giving coming your way. You’ll find suggestions for couples getting married, bridesmaid gift ideas, groomsmen gift ideas, gift ideas for parents of the couple, and unique wedding favor ideas. Of course, you can mix and match these ideas to best fit your crew, but these selections will help get you started. 

There are also a variety of styles and price points represented. There’s something for everyone! 

Overall, no. We do have affiliate programs with a few, select businesses. Those program are disclosed on each gift page! 

If you’re using this guide to build your own wedding registry, we recommend using a site like Zola, so you can add gifts from any website. Don’t forget to download the free gift tracker to keep track of all those sweet gifts!

This is a common misconception and one we’re excited to tackle. Yes, some of the gifts included in the gift guide are splurge-worthy gifts, because they are handcrafted or one-of-a-kind. But buying local isn’t always more expensive, especially when you consider the quality. Browse the gifts and you’ll see what we mean! We included a range of price points in the guide to fit most budgets.

And – there’s the double bonus of the real impact supporting a small business.
