Native American Holiday Gift Guide

Native American Holiday Gift Guide

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown December 4th, 2013 Last Updated on: November 28th, 2018

There's only 3 weeks left until Christmas so you better start marking people off your list quick!  Here's some inspiration for gift giving this year.  A lot of these suggestions are artisans and not big box retailers so get your orders in quick if you want these by Christmas!

Host/Hostess Gift:
Don't show up empty-handed to the party.  Bring something for the gracious hosts!

Tanka Gift Packs – I like the Wild Summer Sausage gift crate that comes with a braid of sweet grass.

Bedré Chocolates – Chocolate from the Chickasaw Nation!

The Geek:
Check out these one of a kind wooden iPhone cases from Louie Gong

Coffee Lovers:
Hoka Coffee: Fresh roasted beans from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

Coffee mugs designed by Corey Bulpitt:

Well-groomed friend/family member:
Sister Sky body care: They have lots of variety but I liked this Cedar and Citrus Tote Gift Set.

What lady doesn't love a little something sparkly and beautiful?

8-Bit Luxury Feathers from The Soft Museum:

Four Corners Earrings by Gourd Jewels:

Make a splash with these Corey Bulpitt designed rain boots:

Keep your man warm this winter with this Eagle Hat:

Show your Native pride with this hoodie from Native Threads:

Check out this unisex Navajo Rug ring – The fellas deserve a little something shiny too.

Children's Toys and books from Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre:  Ok, I couldn't choose just one item from here so I'm sharing their blog post. Cute books, puppets and wooden puzzles with a First Nations aesthetic.

For the Pendleton Lover:
They have the blankets, shoes, clothing, etc. But do they have these?

Urban Ears Pendleton Headphones:


Hopefully you've found some unique items here for your loved ones.  Keep these businesses in mind throughout the year as a lot of them are Native-owned.

How do I get the book and how to I get some of my crafts into the book. Please let me know


what is your return/exchange policy? I want to order the boots, but if they dont fit right I need to be able to return or exchange them

We aren’t the ones selling these items. You’ll have to contact those merchants directly.

May I ask if any of the retailers shown sell moccasins that are not beaded {So that one could bead them as desired..}?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions or answers ~ Be well & well blessed ~


How long would I have to wait to receive my order in Chisasibi, QC? I really like the mugs & jounals:)

Hi there, you can look at similar items on my website. http://www.shopwithshar.ca. I am First Nations. Garfinkel is my wholesaler. They supply me with the boots, etc. Much Respect! Ha’miya’a! Shar


Hi there how do I order those rain boots?

Paul G

Click the link above the boots.

Corey Moraes

Although your article says a lot of these are from artisans, the Corey Bulpitt rain boots link is to the wholesaler (Garfinkel Publications), not the artist himself.

My website is coreymoraes.com btw, for all products related to my art.

Interesting article though.
