Tucked between the chaos of Black Friday and madness of Cyber Monday sits Small Business Saturday. This is our personal favorite because we always prefer shopping local. Main Street Bozeman is the place to head this Saturday, November 24th to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Just skip Black Friday and sleep in! Parking will be FREE all day in the garage and the downtown area for this event. Here are the ten places not to miss on Small Business Saturday (or anytime during the holidays).
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. You'll find perfumes, Montana goodies, books, stationery, beautiful jewelry, handbags, kitchen items...seriously you could check off your whole list here. They also have gorgeous gift wrapping and the atmosphere in the store is always spot on. Heyday is planning some weekend sales for Small Business Saturday so keep an eye on their Facebook and Instagram pages to find out what they have up their sleeve!.
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 have 10% off everything in the store plus $10 tanks!
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!
One of downtown Bozeman's longest standing stores! Cactus Records is the place to go for the music lovers on your list and to find something out of the ordinary and quirky (perfect for all those white elephant gifts!) For Small Business Saturday they will be offering 25% off speakers, amps, headphones and more.

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 kiddos here rather than the big box stores and get 15% off all games and a $5 gift certificate for every $50 or more purchase.

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?!)
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'll be having special sales for Small Business Saturday.
