As you know, shopping for holiday gifts can be a chore. Here are a few sites which may ease the difficulty of finding the "right" gift. Good luck.
Digital cameras - Lots of camera review sites out there, but Ken Rockwell does the best job of selecting exactly what you need.
Cool Tools - Kevin Kelly's site has recommendations for a huge variety of quality items. Pick a category of interest and browse for hours. We have purchased a number of items based on reviews here and have been very pleased with the results.
Charitable giving - Micro-loans are a very cool idea, helping impoverished folks get ahead and improve their plight. But remember we have great non-profit organizations locally which need your support: KBUT-FM, the Gunnison Ranchland Conservation Legacy, the C.B. Land Trust, the C.B. Avalanche Center, C.B. Search and Rescue, etc. Help them and you help everyone in the area.
And if you are in Crested Butte or Gunnison, please support your local merchants. After all, they are your neighbors and friends, working hard to make a living just like you.
