1 / The Perfect Candle
A master perfumer in Grasse, France—pretty much the perfume capital of the world—creates every scent used in Alixx candles. The company’s teatime fragrance is the most popular with local customers, but nothing says summer more than sea breeze. The candles themselves are made from a natural vegetable-based wax, with no added color. Naturally, wicks are cotton. Mouth-blown by an artisan, each vase is unique. From $32, Lily & Co., 95 W. Deloney, 307/732-2211, lilyandcompany.wordpress.com

2 / Mâché Mounts
Designed in Nebraska and made in the Philippines, these papier mâché animals—squirrels, unicorns, giraffes, and elephants—are perfect for Jackson Hole. We heard about one local putting several of the squirrels in her pantry. We think a unicorn would look great over your bathroom mirror. Starting at $45, Paper & Grace, 55 Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

3 / Take Your Table up a Notch
You’ve probably spent time searching for the softest towels for your bathroom. What about soft napkins for your dining table? Los Angeles-based MATTEO Home’s linen napkins are the softest we’ve found. Their Cluny style, sewn with a crochet trim detail, is delicate yet rustic and timeless. $165 for a set of four, Twenty Two Home, 45 E. Deloney, 307/733-9922, twentytwohome.com

4 / Artisan, and Art-y Vodka
The corn in Highwater Vodka comes from a distributor in Riverton, Wyoming. The oats come from a family farm in Powell. The idea of Jackson Hole Still Works belongs to longtime friends Chas Marsh and Travis Goodman. The two founded the valley’s first distillery and this past November released their first spirit, Highwater Vodka, and opened a tasting room. They commissioned local artist Katy Ann Fox to create the original painting that’s on the label of every bottle. From $25, available at local liquor stores and Jackson Hole Still Works, 3940 S. Eagle View Dr., 307/699-8998, jhstillworks.com

5 / Pocket Science
Add living art to your collection. Woolly Pocket’s Wally One—made 100 percent from recycled plastic bottles—hangs on any wall and has just enough space for an organic herb garden or a collection of orchids, succulents, or grasses. (It’s fifteen inches tall and twenty-four inches wide.) The pocketed, felt planter is available with or without a reservoir (you’ll want a reservoir for indoor use) and has a military-grade moisture barrier that will keep your walls dry. Create an entire living wall by hanging Wallys side by side and stacking them. From $40, woollypocket.com

6 / Light Your Fire
A fire never looked so good as when lit by a Skeem Design match. Even sitting by themselves, these matches, in two-inch and four-inch sizes, are a conversation starter. They come with blue, green, white, red, and black tips, and each color has its own label, which, if you take the time to notice and read, will make you laugh. Starting at $10, Paper & Grace, 55 Glenwood St., 307/733-8900, paperandgrace.com

7 / Hip to Be Square
Make your best cocktails yet with Tovolo’s silicone ice cube tray. Each tray—you’ll want more than one since they come in fun colors, from indigo to bright green, yellow, and orange—makes six extra-large squares (two inches by two inches each). The benefit of big cubes? They melt slower than standard cubes, keeping your favorite summer cocktail from diluting too quickly. $9, tovolo.com

8 / Round About
Colonial Mills’ braided storage baskets are as functional and utilitarian as they are stylish. We love the Boca Raton design for hiding kids’ toys or magazines. In winter, it’s sturdy enough to hold firewood. In summer, it can hold towels when you take a trip to the river. From $50, colonialmills.com

9 / Toast to the Animals
You’ve seen pint and wine glasses with bison and elk etched onto them, but have you seen the new ones at MADE, with animals rendered in 24k gold? MADE commissioned Denver’s Vital Industries to make the glasses exclusively for them. Best of all? This might be the most reasonably priced gold in the valley. From $15, MADE, 125 North Cache, 307/690-7957, madejacksonhole.com
