Vermont gifts for large budgets

#1 Vermont wine cork map

I will start this list with what is probably one of my favorite Vermont gifts; a map of Vermont in which they can place wine corks!

Not only is it a cool and unique wall decoration, but it also gives the recipient a legit reason to open up those wine bottles.

Sorry, I don’t want to drink, but I have to fill up my map” sounds like a pretty good excuse to me.

Oh and check out the next gift for people who are more into beer.


#2 Vermont beer cap map

If you really liked the last gift, but the receiver is more into beer than wine, this is your perfect gift!

A map of Vermont in which they can place beer caps.

Again, you are giving them a reason to open up that beer (perhaps even a local Vermont beer) and decorate their home.


#3 Vermont lake cribbage board

For Vermonters who love board games or just cribbage, this personalized lake art cribbage board is the perfect gift.

You can select various Vermont lakes that they will etch into the board, for example:

  • Lake Champlain
  • Lake Eden
  • Shadow Lake
  • Crystal Lake

Oh, and in case you and the person you are getting this gift for have never played cribbage, Uncommon Goods also provides a game explanation. It might be a good idea to give that explanation with the gift.


#4 Vermont state cheese board

These cheese boards are one of the best Vermont-themed gifts because they combine two things Vermonters love:

  1. Their state
  2. Cheese

So get these Vermont-shaped cheese boards for your Vermonter friend and I am sure they will love it! If you are lucky they might even get some real Vermont cheese for you to serve on the board.


#5 Vermont map side table

This is definitely one of the most expensive Vermont gifts. But if you’re talking about unique Vermont gift ideas, this side table has to be included.

Oh, and for the critical reader, I am aware of the fact that it’s not a map of Vermont on the photo. Unfortunately, a photo of the Vermont side table wasn’t available so that’s why it’s a different state.

Bonus points if you can tell me which state it is!


#6 Tata Harper travel gift set

#7 Vermont-made gift basket

Vermont is famous for its honey, so when looking for homemade gifts from Vermont, honey is a good idea!

There are plenty of different companies offering honey, but Champlain Valley Honey is a family-owned business that has been in Vermont for over 85 years. They offer various gift sets and honey jars.

But whichever option you chose, giving Vermont-made honey will surely bring a smile to their face!


#8 Vermont Teddy Bear

Vermont Teddy Bear

So there they are, the cute bears I talked about in the introduction and also the most famous gifts from Vermont; the Vermont Teddy bears. The Teddy bears are made by the eponymous company which is (surprise) originally from Vermont.

Though Teddy Bears are usually considered gifts for children, the Vermont teddy bear is a different story. You can find Teddy Bears for all sorts of occasions. For example, Christmas, graduation, father’s day, mother’s day, halloween, and of course valentines day.

If you are looking for Vermont gift ideas for any of these occasions, a Vermont teddy bear is an awesome locally-made gift.
