Adventurer’s gift guide

The excellence of a gift

lies in its appropriateness

rather than its value.

-Charles Dudley Warner

I’m not blowing smoke when I tell you that I personally LOVE giving gifts – it is truly one of my greatest thrills. What I like most about it is the feeling that you are helping someone feel seen, known, and valued, which is more important than ever during this time when we are disconnected from one another, stressed out, isolated, and downright tired of that thing that rhymes with schmovid.

Everyone deserves a little extra joy, some simple beauty, and a lot of kindness right now.

Can I get an amen?!

Thank you for supporting small businesses – especially this season. And thank you for living your life today (or maybe just this single minute!) as the best version of yourself. Sometimes that’s not an easy task, but I appreciate you and the gift you are in this world.

for the climber:

Art print on 100% recycled paper featuring original illustration of the beloved Early Winter Spires in the North Cascades mountains.

Weather resistant vinyl carabiner sticker perfect for water bottles, cars, laptops, or anywhere you want to show your love for climbing.

for the skier:

Double-wall, vacuum insulated travel tumbler featuring skiers painting by artist Hana Baker. Perfect for coffee on the way to the slopes, or an adult beverage afterwards.

For the backcountry skiers, an art printed can cooler (aka koozie 😉 featuring original artwork by Kathleen Hanson. Keep those drinks cold and fingers not-so-cold.

for the surfer:

It’s always summer somewhere. Beach vibes and ocean waves in a drapey, soft racerback tank.

Seagrass swaying underwater, salty hair, and a tasty beverage on the beach. What could be better?

for the yogi:

Brand new yoga leggings made from eco-friendly fabric, printed and sewn in Cananda, featuring comfy high waist and soft stretchy feel. 

Like an art print, yoga mat, and yoga towel all in one. Soft, buttery feel on the top, sticky rubber mat underneath (aka reversible!). Make practicing yoga an even more beautiful experience.

for the hiker:

Stainless steel water bottle featuring mountain lupine illustration by artist Casey Peplow. Perfect for the trail or even just around the house.

Hard cover, lined journal featuring cover artwork of Mt Baker nestled in the PNW. Perfect for planning your next adventure, or recording your thoughts while perched in a scenic spot.

These gifts and many more are available from Red Umbrella Designs, a PNW-based, female owned design studio offering down-to-earth products inspired by nature.

Seek beauty. Keep hope. Give kindness.
