POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - If you're still looking for that perfect Christmas gift, a store in Pocatello might have what you need.

Idaho Unlimited sells everything related to the state of Idaho. 

It has Christmas decorations, Idaho Spuds, homemade jams and jellies and even a custom made blanket of scenic Pocatello.

Idaho Unlimited has a little bit of everything. Everything is either about Idaho or made in Idaho. It has Idaho-shaped suckers from Twin Falls, candies and chocolates from Boise and potatoes from Blackfoot. The gold foil-wrapped potatoes even come in a "six-pack" for easy shipping. 

Gale Haeger, the manager, said it started out small and has slowly expanded over the years.

"We started out in the mall and it was the year of Idaho's centennial," Haeger said. "And a lot of people asked the owners to do an Idaho store and so they started out with shot glasses and a few shirts and it just kind of expanded and went from there."

Haeger said one of the fun things about the store is it's not just women who shop there often.

"It's kind of a guys store because we'll do the gift wrapping for them," she said. "And we'll help them with whatever they're looking for and they don't have to go anywhere else."

Haeger said with free gift wrapping and unique gifts for loved ones, they stay busy for the holidays. She said this year business really picked up around the first of November.

She said even though they've been around for awhile, there are still a lot of people who don't know about them. Haeger said she loves seeing new customers enjoy the store.

"It's fun and I think they really like it," she said. "It has kind of a mom and pop atmosphere and we get a lot of repeat customers."

The store also makes coffees, Italian sodas and hot chocolate. 

Dec. 16 the store is holding a wine tasting from 5 - 8 p.m. The wine tasting will be provided by Crossings Winery from Glenns Ferry.  Dec. 17 there will be a book signing with Pocatello author Kirby Jonas, author of  "Law of the Lemhi" and several other books.

Idaho Unlimited is located at 215 E. Cedar Street, Suite C. Regular store hours are Monday through Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
