Finding the perfect gift can be tough — especially when you have to find something for your significant other, your best friend, your mom and your dog. Luckily, Etsy exists and is coming to the rescue again! This online shop is the best place to find one of a kind items, while still supporting small businesses.
To make your shopping experience even easier, we compiled a list of our favorite Fort Collins Etsy stores. Support local this year by shopping these creators from just around the corner. Grab a gift for your husband, your wife, your kids, your cat and even your home. Happy shopping!

Chris Freeman believes fly anglers should have gear that is as classic, artistic and as rugged as the craft they pursue. To provide high-quality goods, he crafts every single waxed canvas bag by hand — ensuring quality because he is in control of the whole process. And as a fly fisherman himself, he tests his products right here in Northern Colorado! You find his products on Etsy and on his website.
Akinz is one of our favorite Fort Collins brick and mortar shops, and they also sell a few of their hand knitted and printed hats and shirts on Etsy. Now anyone in America and Europe can share the culture of Northern Colorado! Inspired by the beauty of our surroundings, Akinz offers products that help us celebrate nature and motivate us to get outside.
