Holiday Gift Guide - Adventures in Good Company Style

Posted: Friday, December 4, 2020

We all know that any time is a good time to get outdoors . . . and at this moment in history it is even more beneficial and rewarding than ever. It is also very important to support small businesses during big buying seasons. And, we believe any efforts to support and empower women and to work towards a more gender-balanced economic landscape - are well-spent efforts. 


Following is a list of gift ideas around these ideals - some fun, some unique, some just great things the giftee would be thrilled to receive. Our list is a combination of women-related ideas we want you to know about, mixed with the items that are on the holiday wish lists of the Adventures in Good Company staffers. 


Art Inspired by the Outdoors

Printed on 100% recycled paper

Nori is a self-taught artist working in multiple media and the creative genius behind our new logo design. Her work is inspired by mountain peaks, sunsets, tall trees, and bodies of water.

Julie Fast - AGC Program Manager and Guide - is asking Santa for a Surly Long Haul Trucker (touring bike), snorkeling equipment for a future adventure, and a backcountry (i.e. travel size) watercolor kit for painting on hikes.


Gift Ideas for Any Outdoor Enthusiast

Denise Kaitala is the Owner of Trailfitters in Duluth, MN, which started out of a desire and passion to spend as much time outdoors as possible, as well connect around the shared language that outdoor-lovers understand. The Trailfitters online store site has a selection of clothing and gift ideas for any person on your list. 


Karen Katt - AGC Registrar/Systems Specialist & Guide - has been doing some early shopping (for herself - tee hee) and is very happy with her new Outdoor Research Rain Jacket and Rain Pants, and her Sea to Summit Light Stuff Sacks. Looking to be more sustainable in the new year, she also already purchased reusable produce bags, silicone lids, and reusable ziploc bags


Know a Gal Who Loves Great Active Wear (made just for women)?

Judy Gross of LightHeart Gear is avid long-distance hiker and developed a line of hiking and backpacking clothing - designed for WOMEN - and produced at their small factory in North Carolina. She is most famous for the lightweight tents she also locally produces that are used by thru-hikers, but her clothing line also gets rave reviews.



Kelly Kimple - AGC Director - is hoping for a deck of Wonder Walking Cards for reconnecting with nature and our creativity. The cards feature paintings inspired by wonder-walks. She also enjoy Meadowland Syrups hand-crafted by a mom and daughter-in-law duo - to jazz up recipes, coffee and cocktails. And, she is hoping for some Darn Tough socks for her adventures in 2021.
