by Carrie Bradon | Jun. 18, 2018, 7:53pm |

Denver is filled with skilled artisans, all unique and constantly creating new and one-of-a-kind items.

Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, there are many events that call for special celebration and recognition. While going to a big box store and picking up a generic gift or gift card may be easiest, it certainly isn't the most meaningful approach. Moreover, the most meaningful gifts are usually one of a kind, rather than simply a duplicate of something that was crafted overseas by a machine.

If you have a special event or a special someone you need to celebrate, the perfect gift is closer than you may even imagine. Denver is filled with skilled artisans, all unique and constantly creating new and one-of-a-kind items.

Here are 15 mighty independent ones who are sure to strike your fancy.
