In my previous post, I covered several of Boulder’s top jewelers. Home and fashion are other popular categories for gift-giving. Style is critical in expressing oneself, and here in Boulder, there’s no shortage of boutiques that carry high-quality items for any taste. If you’d like to treat someone special to home goods, clothing, or accessories, here are a few excellent options:
Jones + Co Modern Mercantile
Jones + Co is a beloved boutique located on Pearl Street. As the name suggests, this is a modern mercantile shop. There’s no limit to the chic finds that you will discover here, so whether you’re thinking of jewelry or cozy slippers for your loved one, you’re in luck. Not sure what to purchase? Just grab a gift card! They make excellent stocking stuffers.
Haven is another lifestyle shop that never fails to delight shoppers with timeless finds. Owned by a mother/daughter team, Haven specializes in products that are “tastefully rebellious.” If you have a loved one who appreciates life’s little luxuries, stop by Haven to have a look around.
Cedar & Hyde
Cedar & Hyde is a Boulder staple for home and fashion. This shop on Pearl Street is well-stocked with curiosities for the home and body and offers products from a plethora of designers. There’s a great selection of clothing, art, mirrors, and ceramics here, and you’re sure to find something special for anyone on your list.
Looking for something exceptional for the home? You’ll want to check out Low Rider. Located in Longmont, this multidisciplinary retailer and design studio carries time-honored furniture, artwork, jewelry, apothecary, and more. In addition to offering exceptional pieces for sale, the Low Rider studio accepts interior design projects to curate dream spaces.
If you’re shopping for someone who is serious about their clothes, Canoe Club is a can’t-miss. This shop first opened its doors in 2017 and has quickly become one of our city’s most trusted names in clothing. The founders care deeply about creating a personalized experience for customers, and everyone who walks into the store will have an opportunity to find something that speaks to them. Canoe Club firmly believes that clothing can (and should) be a work of art, which makes their collections ideal for gifting.

Artwork is a must in any home, and SmithKlein Gallery is a fantastic resource for finding spectacular works. Owned by husband and wife team Nathan and Ann Klein, this gallery on Pearl Street has been a mainstay in Boulder since Nathan’s mother opened its doors more than 30 years ago. Whether you’re shopping for an established collector or a casual appreciator of art, you can find something that fits the bill at SmithKlein Gallery. There’s truly something for everyone here, from large paintings to eclectic sculptures–and so much more.
