Colorado Crafted Foodie Gift Boxes

by Grace Boyle on March 20, 2013

I’m excited to be talking about a new company called Colorado Crafted started by my two foodie blogging friends Sarah and Dulcie of Two Tarts.

Colorado Crafted is a hand-crafted, foodie gift box business that selects artisan, small-batch foods only from Colorado.

Their boxes are delightful and you can tell there is such attention to detail in everything from the description of the what’s in the box, to the wrapping paper to look of the box itself. I also appreciate that shipping is free.

Unlike other gift basket vendors, Colorado Crafted is the exact opposite of generic. From hand printed labels, to twine that ties up your box, to soft tissue paper to carefully crafted descriptions, the entire process is intimate and thoughtful.

Their website is clean and simple and the check-out process is easy. I’m absolutely endorsing Sarah and Dulcie because not only do I know them personally, but I trust their taste as they are delivering a very unique experience for these artisan creators and the buyers.

They line up their boxes by price and now, no box is more than $100. Right now they have a brunch box that features jam, honey and coffee and seasonally they rotate boxes such as one for Valentine’s Day or an upcoming Spring Box (yet to be released). If you want to look at their current collection of boxes, follow this link and begin to drool.

One thing I really love is that everyone loves a hand-crafted gift delivered to them. You don’t have to be from Colorado to enjoy these boxes and if you are, it’s a great way to continue to perpetuate buying local and supporting small businesses from around the state.

I recently tried their Truffle Box ($25) which included three boxes of truffles from around the Colorado area. I consider myself pretty invested in local products, but I hadn’t heard of any of these wonderful chocolatiers and you can tell they’re very small batch, perfectly curated and deliciously rich.

The box description:

We have included chocolates by three of our favorite artisans. Lioni Chocolates has made us an exclusive batch of melty caramel-filled chocolates studded with flakes of sea salt. There are four different truffles by Robin Chocolates: blackberry sage infused chocolate ganache, award-winning lemon souffle, caramel macchiato, and Long’s Peak which features three layers of heavenly ganache – Tahitian vanilla, creamy milk, and rich dark chocolate. Finally, we have two intensely dark truffles by Nova Monda Cacao & Chocolate, one infused and topped with cacao nibs and the other with sea salt.
