But don't take our word for it, Santa himself hits up our shops for last-minute gifts and stocking stuffers! Here are some of his go-to products:
Christmas & Home Décor!
Let's be honest, there is nothing Santa loves more than showing up to a house that is fully decorated for his favorite season - Christmas, of course! This being said, he always make a beeline for our holiday décor when visiting our stores.
Lighted Water Lanterns
There is something about water lanterns that bring the magic of the holiday season to any space. Once turned on, these lanterns are lit with LED lighting and feature whimsical swirling glitter - perfect for any Christmas decorating extraordinaire!
Lighted Water Lanterns make Santa feel right at home - just sayin'! 😉
Holiday Wall Décor
Santa doesn't just love tabletop décor, in fact, we have some insider information that Christmas-inspired wall art makes him especially giddy! If you've been on the hunt for that special statement piece to bring some Christmas cheer to your space, you've got to get your hands on the Santa Stops Here Wood Framed Wall Art by Raz Imports! We guarantee that you will be the jolliest home on the street with this brightly designed wall art.
By the way - a little birdy told us that the best decorated homes get extra big presents from Santa!
Based in Texas, RAZ Imports is known for offering a wonderful array of home decor and whimsical holiday designs.

Sweets & Treats!
While Santa is extremely productive, sometimes even he can't get everything done! When in a pinch, Santa is known for visiting our stores in search of lovely stocking stuffers that will be a hit for everyone. Montana Gift Corral and Santa Claus are in agreeance that you can never go wrong with delicious sweets and treats!
Montana Gift Corral is known for its delicious goodies - in fact, some of our treats are so yummy that they are nearly impossible to put down (a blessing and a curse)! When it comes to Santa's favorites, however, the S'mores Crunch by Huckleberry People is at the top of his list.
Starting with a caramel corn base, chocolate and marshmallow cream are drizzled over top. Then, a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs is added to complete the flavor fest of this one-of-a-kind popcorn! Trust us - nothing hits the spot quite like this delectable treat. If you get the S'mores Crunch Popcorn in your stocking this year, consider yourself lucky!

Just like any other MT visitor, one of the fist stops Santa makes when visiting the Big Sky state is to get his jolly hands on some delicious huckleberry goodies. Unfortunately, since huckleberries only grow in the rocky mountain region, and cannot be farmed, he can't grow them in his garden in the North Pole! That's okay, however, Santa knows that the Montana Gift Corral is a huckleberry-lovers paradise.
For over 30 years, Huckleberry Haven has been producing delicious Montana-inspired goodies out of their location in Northwest Montana. This unique brand is well-known for manufacturing delicious huckleberry delicacies that are adored worldwide!

If there is one thing we know for sure, its that Montanans know how to work hard, and play even harder. After a long and productive work week, there's nothing better than winding down with a good adult beverage! Santa knows best, and he definitely understands that every adult deserves to celebrate the weekend. Trust us, after 1,750 years of life, Santa knows the difference between good and bad barware!
Hand-Crafted Bottle Openers
While Santa crafts most of his gifts in his workshop, he enjoys supporting local economies when looking for last minute gifts! One of his favorite gifts for adults from Montana Gift Corral is the range of bar essentials from Blue Moose Metals.
Blue Moose Metals started out in Missoula, MT with founder Kirk Holfeld designing gaming bottle openers for himself and friends. A love for Montana and the outdoors soon translated over to Kirk creating metal working designs. Each piece starts as an idea and a sketch that is then laser cut out of 10-gauge steel. Blue Moose Metals is still run out of Kirk's garage in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana where he and his wife continue to make each item with their own hands.
While we all love beer here, Santa also makes sure to pick up fun gifts for wine lovers. Whether you love white or red, Santa Claus is definitely heading to the Montana Gift Corral to grab you, your friends, and loved ones our fan-favorite Chirpy Top Wine Pourers!
The Chirpy Top Wine Pourer by GurglePot, Inc. is a cute new way to pour your wine! The Chirpy Top Wine Pourer is sure to make your wine pouring experience less of a 'birden". Made from silicone rubber, you won't have to worry about it falling and breaking, the stopper is also made of silicone to help prevent leaks or spills! When we say that we can barely keep these wine pourers on the shelves, we totally mean it.
There will be no need to 'wine' when you get one of our Chirpy Top Wine Pourers in your stocking this year! 😉
Gifts for your Furry Friends!
Santa doesn't just shop at our stores for gifts for your kiddos, he makes sure to pick up a little something for your fur babies as well! From dog toys to treats, we have the perfect gifts for your pups this year.
