With the Polar Vortex blanketing much of the nation, and nasty winter storms pummeling the rest of us, thoughts turn to cozying up by the fire with your family and pets by your side. I am pretty sure any person on your list would appreciate one of these cozy gifts next weekend — and there is still time.
Kith Aspen Columbia Fleece Hoody (pictured top): A cozy hooded fleece that will swallow you up, complete with neck gaiter? Sign me up. And those fleece pants look pretty darn amazing, too. The collection goes on sale today starting at 11 AM EST.
Glerups Slippers ($115): These felted wool slippers with leather soles are not only warm, but also beautiful. All the slippers are handmade in Denmark and come in a variety of styles and colors.
Craft Move Thermal Bike Tights ($90): Ever since my freezing cold ride in North Dakota, I have been enamored with these bike tights. And I don’t plan on taking them off until spring. They feature a wind- and waterproof front, cozy brushed inside, and 360 degrees reflective visibility. If you have someone on your list who plans to ride straight through the winter, they will appreciate these bike tights.
Club Ride Two Timer ($110): Much like the tights, this jacket has been my go-to piece for cold weather riding. Wind- and water-resistant with an insulated core, it keeps you warm without overheating. A huge zippered pocket in the back can store your phone, snacks, and other ride essentials.
Rumpl Puffy Throw Blanket ($99): Give this give to your significant other, then snuggle up together beneath it for the rest of the holidays. Bonus: come spring, it doubles as an outdoor adventure blanket.
Great Bear Campfire Candle ($15): Nothing smells better than a campfire and now you can bring that same feel-good scent indoors. Great Bear Wax Co. created a set of outdoor inspired candles, including scents like wood, autumn, pumpkin, forest and campfire (my favorite).
The North Face Denali Blanket ($75): Your favorite fleece now comes in blanket form. Cut from the same cloth as one of the iconic jackets, the new recycled fleece blanket repurposes fabric that’s left over from the Denali Jacket manufacturing process. Each durable blanket fits into its own compact stuff sack, so it’s easy to toss in the back of the van, unroll at the campground or curl up with by the campfire.
Prana Lyra Vest ($139): This down (responsibly sourced) vest is a staple of my winter wardrobe. It comes in a bunch of fun colors and the ripstop nylon face fabric is treated with a DWR-finish so when you spill that pumpkin spice latte all over yourself, it will wipe right off. You can’t go wrong with giving this to someone as a gift.
Winona Mittens ($20): I grew up wearing these mittens and still love them to this day. Winona Mittens feature a knit wool exterior with a fleece liner or a quality Berber exterior with a fleece liner. They provide wind resistance and keep your hands cozy warm throughout the coldest winters. As they say in Minnesota, these mittens are double layered to warm your heart and soul.
Ruffwear Fernie Sweater ($60): Don’t forget Fido — this fleece sweater is exactly like a Patagonia Better Sweater, but for your dog. You could even get a matching set as many of the colors are similar. Lola loves hers.
