    Gift Ideas for the Ladies On Your List

    Gift Ideas for the Ladies On Your List

    There are millions of products out there, but how do you know exactly what to get for your mom, sister, or friend especially when they don’t give you their wish lists? Here’s a list of things that will give you some inspiration for your gift giving, and maybe you’ll find some things to add to your own list, too.

    For Mom

    From Krimson Klover: Monday’s Open Cardigan

    Why? Because it’s so comfy! Mom works hard during the holidays to make it special, so she deserves a sweater that she can relax in!

    Other: Wine Accessories

    Why? Drinking wine is fun as it is, but make it a blast with accessories like cork coasters and monogram bottle stoppers. Maybe mom will even share a glass with you!

     

    For Your Adventurous Sister

    From Krimson Klover: Camber Pullover

    Why? It’s a cool and classic sporty sweater. The Camber is going to keep her warm while she treks through the mountains on her skis or snowshoes. It’s a cute look while she stays active.

    Other: Letterfolk Passports

    Why? These passports allow the adventurous girl to record her travels and activities in a unique way! There are many different passports to choose from, whether she loves to hike or visit different National Parks, you’ll find one that fits her passion.

    For Your BFF

    From Krimson Klover: Cascade Sweater

    Why? It’s cute! You’ll have your best gal pal looking gorgeous in this romantic sweater with ruffle sleeves for your Girls Night Out.

    Other: Cocktail Recipe Book

    Why? What are besties for if they aren’t shaking up a tasty new cocktail for you at your next Girls Night In?

     

    For Grandma

    From Krimson Klover: Valley Girl Weekender

    Why? So she can travel in style the next time she comes for the weekend to visit!

     

    Other: Custom Photobook

    Why? Grandma will love to look at this when she can’t make the trip. You can fill it with personal photos to preserve her favorite memories. She won’t have to fumble with the phone to find pictures of her family because she’ll keep the photobook at hand on the coffee table!

     

    For Your Favorite Coworker

    From Krimson Klover: Stellar Sock

    Why? These fun merino wool socks are a small way to say, “I enjoy working with you!” Take a look at our other socks to find the perfect pair!

    Other: Silly Office Supplies

    Why? It makes work a little bit better! Animal shaped paper clips, a Rubix Cube pencil holder, or fast food shaped erasers will bring a smile to their face at work!

    Traveling Light

    Traveling Light

    There is nothing better than a girls ski weekend, and lucky me I had a great one in Steamboat Springs, Colorado this past weekend.  Steamboat Springs is home to 89 Olympians and known for it's "Champagne Powder".  Colorado is so dry (meaning little to no humidity), most days our snow is dry and fluffy powder.  This time of year, however, the sun will melt the snow a bit and refreeze overnight giving you super fast corduroy on the groomed runs.

    The first thing I always make sure to pack is stuff for our hot springs visit.  Steamboat Springs lies against the western ridge of the Continental Divide and is surrounded by national forest and wilderness area.  Evidently, there are 150 natural mineral springs in the area!  There are two popular soaking hot springs one in downtown with a water slide and then there is Strawberry Hot Springs just out of town.  I've been to both and a nice soak in the hot springs is always so welcomed at the end of a great ski day.  For this trip, I've packed my new Krimson Klover Leia Sweater, shorts, bikini and flip-flops.  If going to the Strawberry Hot Springs, you'll also want to bring a headlamp (as there is no electricity after dark) and if it's been warm and melty maybe footwear that you're OK getting muddy...and don't forget your towel! (p.s. the Leia sweater is sold out on krimsonklover.com but you can find it at our Boulder Showroom and local retailers!  A great back-up online is our Harbor Hoody)

     

     

     

     

     

    Strawberry Hot Springs

    The steam is so inviting in cold temperatures!

    Old Town Hot Springs, perfect if you want to get in a workout too!

    A few of my essentials I pack for any weekend away is this new Sherpani bag and MyChelle skin care.

    The Sonora Sherpani bag is large enough to carry my iPad mini, Kindle, toiletries and an extra bottle of water.  It's made from a coated cotton which looks like leather and has great pockets everywhere to stash all your important things.  It's super sturdy and the coating on the cotton makes it stain resistant, perfect for whatever you throw at it.  The tassels are a cute bonus.  I love that Sherpani is a local Boulder company, and I usually fall for their new bags every season.

    Another Boulder (well, Louisville) Colorado company, MyChelle Dermaceuticals, they make my most favorite skincare.  Not only does their stuff keep my Colorado skin moisturized -- but their sun care line is perfect for all of the sunny days here.  My favorites are the sun shield stick, this little stick is perfect for throwing into your ski jacket and keeping your face protected while skiing, shopping or enjoying some sunny après ski cocktails.  The sun shield stick has a great consistency and is easy to blend and doesn't leave you with zinc-y white marks on your face.  I always have one of these sticks on me -- in my cycling jersey, my purse, and my SUP dry bag!  The sun shield stick now comes in a tinted version, I've not tried it yet, but I'm guessing I'm going to love it.  Also on my must-have list is the liquid tint in nude, the sugar scrub and the lip hint in berry.  Bonus:  This little blue zip pack is TSA approved!

    Après Anyone? Base Layer and Socks

    Krimson Klover Lightweight Base Layers and the girls at Four Points Lodge

     The view from Four Points Lodge

    Of course, you have to bring your ski gear.  I love the Krimson Klover lightweight base layers for spring skiing.  They are so soft and the perfect weight to keep you warm on the ski lift and so adorable to show off at lunch.  I love hanging out on the Adirondack chairs at Four Points lodge on our lunch break.  With 3,000 skiable acres, there is something for everyone and the mountain is big enough that it never seems crowded.  You can even see on Saturday, we basically had the mountain to ourselves.  Bonus:  These base layers are printed with original artwork that have a fun retro ski vibe.

    Our friend Amy, skinned up the mountain (hiked up the mountain in her AT skis) and met us at the top of the gondola for a day of skiing.  Let me tell you -- she's definitely a bad a$$.  Steamboat Springs Ski resort lets you hike up anytime, some resorts have rules or restrictions around skinning, so make sure to check them out before you head up.  Don't worry, I took the gondy up so I could get to skiing down faster. Après Cocktails! With the ski resort in the background.

    After a full day of skiing and before we hit the hot springs, it's time for a little après cocktails and dinner.  Our favorite places for happy hour in town are Laundry and Salt and Lime.  Both have a great happy hour, great food and delicious cocktails!

    We don't dress up often, but on a girls weekend, it's a must.  In this photo, we've all got on our Krimson Klover favorites.  From left to right:  Jen is wearing our Rita dress made from a beautiful blend of cotton/silk and carrying the Sonora bag, I've got on a Fall 18 sample, it's a little too big for me and the wrong colors, but too cute to pass up --it's called the Pearl dress and I'm carrying the Vibe bag, Amy is wearing our Marta sweater made with 100% ultrafine merino wool (one of our best-sellers) and carrying the Tempest.  Bonus: the Tempest turns into a backpack and can also be worn cross-body!  Double Bonus: 5% of the sales from the Marta sweater are donated to First Descents.

    My other outfit was the Krimson Klover Classical Beauty dress -- it's made from a plant-based viscose yarn that is super yummy and flattering.

    Included in my outfit is Bronwen Jewelry -- their cascade earrings in long and cascade necklace.  These are staples in my waredrobe, I love all of my Bronwen peices because they can be casual or dressy.  Bronwen is based in Bend, Oregon and their jewelry is made to withstand sweat and activity.  I wear my necklaces running, swimming and for happy hour.  They add a feminine touch to all of my outfits...even when I'm feeling super tom-boy-ish.

    Lunch!

    The Pearl Dress coming out this fall, fits Jen way better! Look how cute she is!

    Good Friends

    On our way out of town, we had breakfast at Winona's...only so we could order a cinnamon roll as big as our head!

    My other favorite eateries in town are Mountain Tap, Rootz, Johnny B. Goods Diner and of course the business fries at Carl's Tavern.

    This weekend was a fun get-away, so thankful I have some great friends that help me #liveboldly.

    Photo cred goes to Amy's husband Matt, we let him join us from time to time mostly because he takes teasing well and a good photo.

    Accessories Under $50

    The Skier Sock comes in black, pagoda blue, and tigerlilly. This pair of socks is the most darling present for your favorite skier this holiday. Give them something they can appreciate and functionally wear. This warm, breathable wool will keep their toes comfortable and them outside for hours.

    The Snow Bunny Cable Headband comes in five distinct colors: phlox, red, snow, charcoal, and citron. This luxurious performance wool makes this headband great for wearing around town or down the slopes. There is a color for every hair color and every occasion; whether there is a need purely for warmth or to add to pop to an outfit, this headband is a wonderful choice.

    Outstanding Picks Under $100

    The Herringbone Chevron Skirt comes in black and charcoal. This is our favorite skirt for après ski, easily paired with a set of warm stockings and a soft sweater. It is the perfect present for your go-to dinner and drinks gal pal.

    The Ski Village Leggings is the ideal mix of Merino and Lycra. Present these silky leggings to your favorite ski bunny so they can rock the slopes in style this winter.

    The Snowed In cashmere scarf comes in heather black, bordeaux, mid grey, and toast. Give this lovely Cashmere scarf to your most stylish friend to spruce up their snow attire this holiday season.

    Brilliant Presents Under $200

    The Ski Village Base Layer Top complements the Ski Village Leggings. Your friend will look like a star on the slopes sporting some of the most iconic ski destinations. An added bonus to the joy of giving this lovely present set this holiday season is that 5% of the proceeds from the top and leggings will help support programming for First Descents, a non-profit that provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults who have been impacted by cancer.

    The Altitude Ski Gal Poncho is the best present for that friend who is totally passionate about vintage and retro styles. This is the perfect addition to any après ski wardrobe. Select from oat, bordeaux, and ivory for traditional styling.

    The Ace Stretch Zip Cardigan has a retro flair perfect for any die-hard ski bunny inspired by the classics. It is made of a buttery, soft Viscose blend that adds warmth and comfort to any slope style.

    Serendipity Cashmere Sweater is simplistic and elegant at the same time. This dreamy cashmere sweater comes in heather black, toast, and mid-grey. Give this gorgeous sweater to that friend who is always put together, to pair with a nice knit skirt or dark denim this winter.

    Rivers & Roads Cardigan is the perfect no fuss, chunky sweater for that friend who is always cold. Bundle up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and watch the snow fall together. With options of charcoal or mid-grey, it is a versatile cardigan that can be packed up and brought on any weekend getaway this holiday season.

    Holiday Party Outfits

    KK has created a one stop shop for your must have holiday party outfits this season.

    Blank Space Zip-Front Dress

    This functional dress comes in charcoal and heather black. The unique part of this piece is that it looks best with a dark top underneath, our Skye Turtleneck looks darling with it. Plus, you can add a stylish pair of stockings to complete this winter ensemble. Both the charcoal and heather black dress look wonderful with black accompaniments but for a festive holiday look a jacket, hat, or scarf in red or green would be the perfect touch.

    Kittredge Stretch Dress

    This stunning, sophisticated form flattering dress is sure to be a hit this winter. It comes in taupe, black/ivory, charcoal, and black, giving you lots of options to choose from. This dress looks wonderful paired with the Icing Sheer Top; it gives the dress added coverage and takes it to whole other level. There is nothing else quite like that combination. Then add black stockings and boots and you are set for a great night.

    Palisade Skirt

    This gorgeous merino wool skirt is a festive piece to add to your holiday wardrobe this season. The delicate chevron design looks great in spruce, nutmeg, and charcoal. The variety of colors creates an option for any color palate preference and each shade forges a completely different look. It’s amazing how much depth this skirt has. We love to pair the Palisade with our Wild Heart V-Neck that also comes in a range of colors allowing for a classic pairing or for a pop of color. Another sweater that looks darling with this skirt is the Snow Globe Dolman top, the Bordeaux dolman looks perfect with our nutmeg Palisade.  

    Knotted Up Mohair Poncho

    The perfect statement piece to add to your closet, it is delicate and dramatic at the same time. The cable knit detailing down the center mates wonderfully with the large ribbed cowl neck. This must have tunic comes in almond, teal, citron, and charcoal. Select the almond or charcoal with black bottoms, boots, and large stud earrings for a classic holiday outfit. For those of you who are a bit more daring, try the teal or citron to bring a splash of color into your traditional ensemble. An added effect to this lovely poncho is layering the Icing Sheer Top underneath to really finish off the look.

    Stacks Cashmere Turtleneck

    This posh cashmere sweater displays a delicate color blocking that creates a slim silhouette. It is a beautiful, relaxed design with choices of charcoal, toast, or Bordeaux. All of the color options go fabulously with a dark bottom and boots. We like the idea of pairing dark denim and chic brown boots with the Bordeaux for a daytime gathering. The funnel neck is so precious that we wouldn’t want anything to take away from it so we suggest a nice long, simple necklace to complete this lovely outfit.
