13 Local Shops In Montana Where You’ll Find Amazing Stuff For The Holidays
For the 95% of us who put off shopping for holiday gifts until December, it’s officially crunch time. This year, why not give your fellow Montanans (or those relatives who wish they were) something that was made in the Treasure State? These charming local businesses will have everything you didn’t know you needed. Just order your gifts as soon as you can—handmade treasures can take extra time to finish.

This family-owned business has about 550 hives located in the Sheridan, Alder, Ennis, Butte, Anaconda, Boulder, Three Forks & Jordan areas. In addition to their fresh honey, they sell candles and beeswax products the people on your gift list will love. Email them at

While Cello is best known for their amazing art, they also sell exquisite jewelry, natural fiber clothing, and other handmade accessories created by Montanans.

In addition to having every quirky Montana gift you didn't know you needed, the 50,000 Silver Dollar Bar is just an incredibly fun place to visit.
7. Montana Prairie Treasures, Glendive
Montana Prairie Treasures is a Glendive-based company that creates emu oil lotions and chapsticks as well as candles and other Made in Montana treasures. Their products can be found at shops and craft stores all over Eastern Montana, or you can order gifts online at montanaprairietreasures.com.
8. Chalet Market, 327 N. 24th St W., Billings
Need a gift box for a host/hostess gift or a creative basket to deliver this holiday season? The Chalet Market has you covered - and you can have a delicious deli sandwich while you're there.
9. The Coffee Pot, 80795 Gallatin Rd., Bozeman
Christmas shopping at a coffee shop? What could be better? Originally, a pot of coffee was brewed to welcome guests to Mountain Arts Pottery, their sister store. But now their coffee, savory breakfasts and pastries are just as famous as their beautiful handmade pottery and other gifts. Do your shopping and then order a custom pie for Christmas dinner, all while sipping a latte.
10. The Fort, 228 Big Timber Loop, Big Timber
You might not think that a gas station gift shop would have the holiday presents you're looking for. But The Fort will probably surprise you with their collection of Montana-made gifts as well as their beer, wine and booze from local distilleries.
11. MT Rustic Designs, Flathead Valley
MT Rustic Designs sells one-of-a-kind Montana decor on an Etsy shop. However, the brand is based in the Flathead Valley, so if you live in the area, you can meet the owner Jamie Howard for an in-person delivery. To access the store, head here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MTRusticDesigns
12. Fort Custer General Store, 206 N. Center, Hardin
From antiques to crafts to handmade jewelry, you'll find it all at Hardin's Fort Custer General Store. You can find something for everyone on your list here if you look hard enough.
13. Sassafras, 120 Main St., Kalispell
This art, craft and antique cooperative showcases the work of over 35 local artisans. They have something for every taste and price range, and it's all made by proud Montanans.
