Give the gift of fresh coffee! Coffee is a great gift for coffee lovers and local is always best. Stop by the Hugo Coffee Shop to pick up some bags of coffee roasted right here in Park City, or if you’re feeling a little lazy or want to ship for free to someone out of state, you can now buy on Amazon Prime!
If you live in Park City, you’re sure to have gifted a bottle of High West whiskey before, but a bottle of holiday spirits still makes our gift guide. Mix it up this year by taking one of their iconic drink recipes and including it with the bottle and any other ingredients to gift a High West caliber cocktail in a bag!
Buy your friends or family members who love the local watering hole some swap proving they were there. No Name has a selection of gear to chose from and it makes a great gift for anyone who has visited Park City and forgotten their name there. The shop is in the back by the bathrooms and go ahead and grab a beer and a buffalo burger becuase shopping is hard work.
Alpine Distilling is winning awards around the world with their delicious spirits made right here in Summit County. And they have a world-class present this holiday season: three-set gift pack of Aroma Games from the prestigious Aroma Academy of Scotland. The set includes each a Whiskey, Gin, and Wine kit with cards, instructions, and nosing samples designed by a Ph.D recognized as the industry leader in nosing/aroma education. Countless hours of fun will be had from these unique, exciting. and stimulating games. These are fragrance kits, not meant for drinking, so the whole family can take part.

Everyone loves a gift card. But why not get a little when you give a little? For every $50 you spend on gift cards at Trio, you’ll receive a $5 gift card that you can also give, but you’ll probably want to keep it for yourself once you look at their menu.
Wine is always a welcome gift. Give a bottle from Cognition Winery and introduce family and friends to Park City’s first winery, and a bonus as the bottles have beautiful local art on them. You could also attach a gift card to their bistro as an extra fun treat. If you know a Cognition supporting, check out the benefits and discounts of their wine club and consider signing them up!
