The Holidays are officially in full swing and we hope that our gift guides have provided some thoughtful and genuine inspiration for gift giving this season. As our shop local series comes to an end, we are so thrilled to have been able to feature so many fabulous shops. Each of these places contributes to the vibrant community of Boulder and we feel fortunate to live and work in such an amazing town.

Wonder Press: 946 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO
Why we love it: Wonder Press has just about everything we love…fresh local ingredients, snacks and coffee! For some fabulous and thoughtful gifts, wonder press will do the trick. We can’t wait to try out a juice cleanse in the near future.
“We are a local, organic Juice, Coffee and Smoothie Bar. We specialize in cold-press juice, but also serve organic broth, small snacks and coffee with house made nut milks. It can be really fun to surprise your friends and family with juice for a holiday party or Christmas morning breakfast. Our juice is quite festive, and often makes a delicious mixer for cocktails. A 1, 2 or 3 day juice cleanse is also a very thoughtful gift. It helps people get their New Year started off in the right healthy direction.”
