Holiday Gift Guide: The Outdoor Enthusiast


If you're on the hunt for a great gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life, you've come to the right place. We're lucky to live somewhere that we can enjoy the convenience of city life and still escape to the mountains for a day of adventure. Here's a round-up of the best gifts for the people on your list who can't get enough of the great outdoors.


For skiing and snowboarding the Captura goggles from K2 offer world class optics in a sophisticated shape. Available in a blue/pink mirrored colorway these gorgeous goggles are a must-have snow accessory that also make a great gift!



For a refreshing dose of color this season the REI co-op down jacket is a great pick. Featuring light weight insulation this jacket has a durable water repellent finish and also provides wind resistance for outdoor adventures. Available in multiple colors.



Personal style doesn't stop when you hit the slopes, proving that there's always a way to wear leopard, especially in the Northwest. Stylish outdoor enthusiasts will love these 686 Authentic Willow soft shell pants available locally at Evo in Fremont. Complete the look with a solid colored snow jacket and a soft beanie.


In the next few weeks many stylish Seattleites will be setting fitness-related New Years Resolutions and the JoeyBra Sport is here to help! Designed with discreet side pockets the JoeyBra conveniently stores ID cards, cash, post-workout snacks and even keys so that women have a safe place to store valuables. Brilliant! 



For a fun and budget-friendly stocking stuffer check out Stance socks. In addition to being colorful, warm and available in lots of great patterns, they also have cushioned support making them extremely comfortable. The El Paso pair (shown above) is available locally at Zumiez. 


For outdoor enthusiasts on-the-go this Eddie Bauer Down Travel Throw is the perfect solution for sunny but chilly winter days. It's warm, folds up small and even doubles as a travel pillow! And don't worry, if pink isn't your color, there are plenty of other shades to choose from.


I like infinity scarves for many reasons, but mostly because they are really hard to mess up from a styling perspective, which is also why they make an excellent gift. The Matchstick scarf (pictured above) is available locally at Moorea Seal and instantly adds color to any outfit.


Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the durability of the rain-resistant duffle bag from Filson. Made right here in the USA, the medium duffle combines bridle leather with rugged twill and has rust-proof brass zippers and storm flap closures for added protection from the elements.


Top it all off with "The Kate" beanie by Coal Headwear. This fun waffle knit beanie with an oversized pom is great for those on your list who are extremely hard to shop for. This beanie is designed locally and also makes a great stocking stuffer!



Last but not least, for the girl who's got it all, KAVU mittens with a ski-style snowflake print make a great gift. Perfect for keeping hands toasty warm on a brisk winter day! These adorable gloves remind me of childhood and are guaranteed to add an element of excitement to any snow day.


Thanks for stopping by to check out this holiday gift guide. Have a great holiday season and thanks for shopping local!
