Boise Weekly Gift Guide 2010 

Our guide to help you through the holidays


Boise Weekly has published holiday gift guides before but nothing like this.

This year, the BW editorial staff was given a mission to spread across the Treasure Valley to find the most intriguing, unusual, fun, functional, ridiculous, beautiful, luxurious and hysterical things out there. In other worlds, we've assembled what we hope are some of the outright coolest gift ideas around.

Out of hundreds of suggestions, we narrowed down the list to our favorite picks, ranging from tchotchkes, to games, to books, to food, to booze, to fashion. We've also included a hefty portion of what we like to call experiences: things you can give to the person who has everything but who is game to do anything.

One thing all these items have in common is that none of them was selected because of advertising. Everything we chose to highlight was picked simply because we like it, regardless of whether a business bought an ad.

Another factor they have in common is that they are all from local businesses, and many are even made locally. It's part of Boise Weekly's continuing commitment to the buy-local movement.

If you need to know more about where to find these fabulous gifts, flip to the back of the section, where a full business directory will give you all the details.

We hope we've just made your holiday shopping a heck of a lot easier. You're welcome.

  • Gift Guide 2013

    A couple of years ago, we moved our annual Gift Guide away from pure advertising to an entirely editorial product--the gifts featured in each edition of Boise Weekly's Gift Guide were lovingly chosen by BW staff.
    This year, we further revamped our style to include more photographically rich, magazine-like design; and, rather than focus on specific items, we chose to highlight entire stores. Because, really, wouldn't you rather browse through a cool shop than bee-line for a specific shelf? Shopping doesn't have to be painful and the best gifts are found free of stress.
    The newest edition of Gift Guide published Wednesday, Nov. 20. Find a copy inserted into each edition of Boise Weekly or click here for the digital issue.
