Tucked between the chaos of Black Friday and the madness of Cyber Monday sits Small Business Saturday. This is our personal favorite because we always prefer shopping locally! Main Street Bozeman is the place to go on Saturday, November 28th to start your holiday shopping with over 250 small businesses participating in the event. Just skip Black Friday and sleep in! This year more than ever supporting our local businesses will be important, so the Downtown Bozeman Association is encouraging everyone to shop small EVERY Saturday through the holidays. Here are the places in Bozeman to shop on Small Business Saturday
No gift-giving guide is complete without Heyday! This is the ultimate place to shop for everyone on your list, not just the ladies. They have a solid selection for the gentlemen in your life and fun stuff for the kiddos and pets. You'll find perfumes, Montana goodies, books, stationery, beautiful jewelry, handbags, kitchen items...seriously you could check off your whole shopping list at Heyday. They also have gorgeous gift wrapping and the atmosphere in the store is always spot on. With Covid, HeyDay is putting their main focus on Cyber Monday but they will be open on Small Business Saturday!
Looking for something unique and totally local? Head to Intrigue! They have clothes, hats, cups, frames, towels...everything designed and screen printed in the store. For Small Business Saturday they will be having $10 tanks, $15 tees, $25 hoodies, and grab bags!
There is something so Christmasey about a local bookstore. Country Bookshelf is no exception! Books make a wonderful gift so this is a must-stop shop for Christmas shopping. Bonus-they gift wrap! Starting November 25th and running through the 30th, get a free audio book with a $15 purchase.
For the hard to shop for person on your list, consider a personalized gift from Hattie Rex. How about a handmade dog tag for their furry friend? Belt buckles, luggage tags, key chains, money clips...so many cool designs can be found at Hattie Rex, giving a personal touch. They also have products from local artists such as mountain key racks, local books, prints and candles. They are currently running a grab bag promotion for in-store and online local orders until Christmas. When you spend $100 you receive an entry into the grab bag of the week!

This place feels like you are walking right into Santa's workshop with the train running above and toys everywhere. Support local on Saturday by shopping for the kids here rather than the big box stores or Amazon. They have a great selection of games for kids of all ages, they gift wrap and on EVERY Saturday until Christmas, they will give you a $10 gift card for every $100 spent in-store.
We love, love LOVE Re-Couture! They are a high-end consignment store with designer labels and so much more. You'll find new jewelry from local artists and other great gifts on top of clothes, shoes and furniture. This is a place where you'll not only be able to check a few people off your holiday list but also will find a few things for yourself! For Small Business Saturday they'll be offering $50 gift certificates for only $40!

Did you know this started as a cafe in Big Fork? Over the years it evolved into a boutique offering unique and fun Montana items. A couple years ago they opened the Bozeman store and we couldn't be happier about it! They have clothes, hats, jewelry and home items all with Montana love. They make the perfect gift for out of town friends and locals to show their MT pride!
For the avid outdoors-people in your life! Whether it's hunting, hiking, camping, running...Schnee's has it. The large store gives a winter ski lodge vibe making it fun to browse around "hunting" for the perfect gift (see what we did there?!)
This funky boutique will be having fantastic Small Business Saturday sales! They have the cutest items from beautiful jewelry to fun towels, clothing and home items. There really is no other store in downtown Bozeman like Cosmica!
If you're looking for unique holiday gifts, make sure to swing into Montana Honey Bee Company on Saturday. They have honey products including lotion, lip balm, honey supplies and of course honey!

Located in the red barn on Main Street, next to Feed Cafe is Tart. They feature US-made, unique, handmade gifts. It will be easy to find a gift for everyone on your list at this beautiful store. We recommend eating at Feed Cafe first because their food is delicious and then get shopping!
