Maiden Missoula Product Review: Made in Missoula Wedding Gifts

I had a fabulous question via Facebook last week about where to find a great local wedding gift. Well, wouldn’t you know it, the Maiden is gearing up for a trifecta of wedding weekends!

We definitely are in the full swing of wedding season. I am looking forward to three very different and very special weddings, so the question begs: Do I find one signature gift or choose a different gift for each celebration?

Looking back on my wedding (well over a decade ago), some of the best gifts I received were the heartfelt ones: Handmade pottery, wrought iron, and a very special blanket from my hometown in upstate New York. All were local to the guests’ regions, and I use each one regularly.

So, on your quest to find the perfect nuptual token, here is a handy local shopping guide and suggestions for some of my favorite local stores and artists.

When in doubt, you can always spend a good hour or more perusing the Saturday morning Peoples’ Marketon Pine Street in Downtown Missoula for some great inspiration. Enjoy the rest of the Montana summer wedding season and CONGRATULATIONS from the Maiden!Like this Maiden Missoula Product review?  Give it a  Like  or +1 below.
