Do you love choosing unique gifts for your loved ones while supporting local crafters and businesses? Do you love Vermont or know people who do?
My first suggestion would be to come to Vermont and meander down Main Street in a few of your favorite towns to find unique Vermont gifts for everyone on your list, but I know that’s not possible for everyone.
Instead, let’s take a look at Etsy for some easy online shopping for locally crafted Vermont gifts.
Not only are these awesome Vermont gifts inspired by the Green Mountains, but they were also created here! Every gift you buy below will help support a Vermont creator or small business owner in Vermont.
And while it may not be quite as fun as shopping your favorite Vermont Main Street, it’s a close second.
Here are some of our favorite Vermont gifts just in time for the holidays!
