I'm heading on a car camping trip to northerly states that I will break up by visiting friends along the way.  I'm trying to come up with some kind of hostess gift that is Albuquerque-influenced and that will not melt or perish in the heat.  Suggestions?

(These are not ristra or coyote art kind of people...)

There is a shop on Eubank, south of I-40 that carries all sorts of New Mexico items. (Sorry the name escapes me)  Good place to start.  For female friends I often go to the Palms and get earrings.  Or one of the galleries in Old Town.
Nambeware is very New Mexican.
Not anymore, it's not.  It is all made in China.
It's still a NM company.  Based in Santa Fe with distribution and polishing operations based in Espanola.

And in Santa Fe. They have a facility on Agua Fria road.

We have sent/taken dried green chile, dry soup or dip mixes-La Montanita has a good selection so do Smith's, Whole foods and Sunflower.  Also,Downtown Growers Market is good. I have gotten  soap from Rebecca the soap lady, wooden rabbits and other animals from the carving guy at the market and jewelry from Eclectic Elements as gifts for out of towners.

good luck!

Speaking of soap, I have received bars of Sandia Soap as a hostess gift and I was delightfully surprised to find out that it is some really great soap! Smells good, lasts a long time, looks pretty.  Everyone can use some cool looking soap in their guest bathroom or wherever. I've seen it being sold around town quite a bit and I think my gift came from the top of the tram gift shop.

You can also get little bags of pinon coffee.
jewelry?  There are a ton of great local artists.  What types of things do they like?
Pinon coffee,

In connection with the downtown grower's market theme - one of the vendors sells organic raspberry jam in small jars from a local raspberry farm - regular raspberry, raspberry and ginger, and raspberry and red chile.

These have been well received when I've taken them.

 

That is Rebecca's in Corrales.  Excellent jam.
