2020 Holiday Gift Guide

Local shopping ideas to help you navigate the holiday giving season

Season’s greetings, and welcome to this year’s rendition of the Flathead Beacon Gift Guide, an annual selection of locally themed fine notions and gifts, carefully curated by the Beacon staff.

With the most wonderful time of the year fast approaching, this guide is meant to help you navigate the holiday shopping tradition that is sure to be alive and well — even in 2020.

It’s no secret that Flathead Valley businesses have the most charm, the best backstories and offer the most benefit to our fellow residents and we adjure you to lavish some attention on these businesses during your shopping frenzy this season.

We at the Beacon have crisscrossed the Flathead, stressing out over stocking stuffers, adventure gear, toys for tots, home bar essentials and more so that you don’t have to.

To avoid a last minute festive faux pas, forge ahead at will. And please remember that the greatest gift we can give this holiday season is time spent with loved ones, from six feet away.

We hope this guide will help you shave precious time from your shopping regimen so that you may shower it upon those you most care to be on a Zoom call with.

Happy Holidays!
