5 Local, Last-Minute Gifts for the MINIac on Your List

Christmas week is finally here with dropping temperatures, time off of work, and celebrating the holiday with loved ones. If you’re like us and Christmas seemed to come up quickly, we’re now tasked with finding the perfect last-minute gifts for everyone on our Christmas list. But don’t worry, because Schomp MINI has you covered.

Instead of hunting online or heading to the chaotic shopping malls for gifts to put under your tree, shop local and give back to the community, as well as gifting cool gifts that your loved ones will love. From local chocolate with a little spice to coffee and gear for the mountain, here’s a list of local goods you can get within a few miles of the big city.

5 local gift ideas for the MINIac on your list

Dead Dog Chocolate

  • Purchase at Tony’s Market: 950 Broadway in Denver | Website

“Our Denver based bean-to-bar chocolate company prides itself in supporting ethically sourced and organic cacao farms.”

Hand sorted, cracked, roasted, winnowed, grinded, conched, tempered and molded, Dead Dog Chocolate is a local treat company that you have to taste for yourself. These bars and chocolates would make the perfect stocking stuffers, as they aren’t only locally made, but are packed with flavor, and interesting flavor at that. You can purchase all over town included at Tony’s Market. We suggest the dark Mexican chocolate for a little sweet and spicy taste.

Boxcar Coffee Roasters

  • Purchase at The Source: 3350 Brighton Blvd. Suite 110, Denver | Website

For a local coffee company that offers great service, quality beans and an excellent, fresh roasted cup, head to The Source in Denver for a unique coffee experience. Boxcar Coffee Roasters is one of our favorite new coffee shops, with locations in both Denver and Boulder. It offers coffee roasting and cutting edge brewing technology, so you know the product will be on-point and a great gift for stockings.

Burton gear

  • Purchase at REI Denver: 1416 Platte Street | Website

For the lover of the outdoors, why not get them gear to keep them looking fresh and staying warm all season? Burton is not only one of our partners, but one of our favorite snow brands. Whether your loved ones need gear for the mountain or something to wear in the city, there’s truly something for everyone. REI is one of the closest Burton dealers in Denver, so head there for Burton boards, jackets, accessories and more.

Tattered Cover books

  • Purchase at Union Station: 1701 Wynkoop Street, Denver | Website

If you aren’t sure what to get someone, what about a gift card or new book from the Tattered Cover in Union Station? This location is relatively new since the re-opening of Denver’s Union Station this summer. The bookstore offers new best sellers, along with classic favorites. There are small gifts that can pair with a gift card, so you’ll be set with finding something they will love and will be able to customize themselves.

Countryman at Schomp MINI
