Light up Your Holiday Season
Add a little festive glow to your gift-giving with these unique Montana-made candles!

24 oz. Campfire Coffee Candles
By Big Sky Carvers

Part of the Big Sky Carvers Cabin Candles collection, this Campfire Coffee Candle uses a natural blend of waxes to make the candle last longer and burn cleaner and more consistently. The scent of this candle, which features a fragrance load double that of a standard candle, is best described by Big Sky Carvers: “It's early, but grab your cup, relax in your favorite camp chair and become lost in all the elements of nature. Make sure it's hot, as coffee and nature are best appreciated slowly.” Featuring real wood lids with a log cabin design branded into them as well as leather laced tops, this candle has a burn time between 125 and 135 hours. Approximately 4” in diameter and 6” tall.

“There is nothing like the scent of wild huckleberries. One whiff and you'll be clamoring up the trail in no time, to pick some for a mid-morning snack! Just don't let the bears beat you to 'em.” This sentiment from Big Sky Carvers pretty much sums up the delectable scent of their Huckleberry Patch candle, part of their exclusive Cabin Candles collection. Like other candles in the collection, the Huckleberry Patch candle features twice the fragrance load of an average candle and uses a natural wax blend allowing the candle to last longer and burn cleaner and more consistently. Additionally, the candle features a real wood lid with a log cabin design branded into it, along with real leather laces around the top. Measuring approximately 4” in diameter and 3 -1/2贅� tall, this candle burns 50 to 60 hours.

Montana Trivia
from Riverbend Publishing

Click here for price and order information and to view more Gift Corral products

Ever wonder if there are any states with more pickup trucks per capita than Montana? (page 115) Or where you can attend a ski festival on the 4th of July? (page 119) Or where you can find a petrified oyster, a fossilized gizzard stone, or a mummified foot? (page 98) And don’t forget the jar of 1,850 grasshoppers! (page 49)

In this book you’ll find a faithful dog and a fateful poker game; the Unabomber and the Unamusher; a 6,000-pound hamburger and 4,000 hot dogs; and hot spots, cold snaps, and deadly blizzards. This book has it all: flying pumpkins, UFOs, barstools on skis, a 27-foot penguin, lawnmower races, a copper coffin, and a town named Joe.

These trivial trifles, treasures, and treats will keep you laughing, learning, and guessing. It’s entertaining for all ages. Keep a copy in your car, your camping gear, or your bathroom!

Other colorful characters cook up Mudpot Stroganoff, Mama Bear's Lasagna, Antelope Toes and much more.
