These products aren’t even beginning to touch all of the wonderful food that you can order as gifts! Order honey from the Glacier County Honey Company, or have a huckleberry pie (baked!) delivered to your doorstep thanks to the Huckleberry Patch in Hungry Horse, Montana! (I also love to order their huckleberry pie filling and bake the pies myself.)
Some retailers that sell a great selection of Montana-inspired items are the Montana Bear Food in Bigfork, and the Montana Shop in Missoula. The Montana Shop now makes gorgeous sterling silver “Montana” necklaces that you can find here. Many local shops have a selection of Montana items to choose from!
Shopping from these local places will help support small Montana businesses, and add some adorable Montana pride to your life!
