A cape might seem like an unusual gift at first glance but bear with us. The Luhkka cape was inspired by the traditional clothing of the Sami people of Norway (where Fjallraven was born). Conversation starting style aside, this thing provides complete protection from the winter elements, all the way down to the knees. Between the fleece interior, light synthetic insulation, and wind and water-resistant G-1000 outer shell, there isn’t much weather too crappy for this cape.
The hood even features a removable faux fur trim to tailor to the occasion. Remove it for technical wear in the woods and snap it back on to go strolling around town.

For true warmth without weight or bulk, the Outdoor Research Down Baja Pullover pulls out all the stops. It features both an ultralight, water-repellant shell and 800 fill Responsible Down Standard down filling. But our favorite feature?

Any outdoor loving lady will tell you: you can never have too many beanies. Beanies are the bread and butter to mountain style and the prAna Shila Beanie like garlic on top of all that (because WHO doesn’t love garlic bread?!). Made of float yarns, this retro-looking beanie is the perfect blend of nature-inspired muted tones with a little bit of color pop to brighten up the most dreary winter days.
For ladies looking to combine their love for comfortable tights and durable technical pants, Fjallraven once again comes to the rescue.

In other words, they’re just as wearable for a full-on attach of Cobra Crack as they are for a gentle cobra pose during yoga class. Other great features include a wide, high tummy supportive waistband, UPF 50+ sun protection, and a zippered thigh holster pocket.
For the snow bunny on your list, check out the Roxy Andie Jacket. From the outside, it looks like a beautifully colored around-town coat.

While slim in design, it features oh-so-many pockets that hold a surprising amount of goodies.
Made of G-1000 Heavy Duty Eco A fabric, it’s also incredibly durable and highly water-resistant. Think of the Pocket Purse as a life tote, not just a fashion accessory. Use it out shopping to carry cards and cash, or out hiking to carry essential snacks and safety gear.
Vests are truly the most versatile of all outwear. Wear them on chilly summer nights or for warmer fringe season cragging sessions without overheating. Then turn around and layer them up with other jackets to add a little extra torso warmth.
The North Face Campshire fleece vest is even better because it features a super soft high pile fleece construction and cute patterns that add a little pizzazz to any outfit, whether it be casual or outdoor-oriented.
The Basin and Range New Wingate jacket is a super stylish long parka that absolutely any lady will feel like a queen wearing.

It’s a proven fact that ladies have poorer circulation to the outer extremities. That’s why our hands are so dang cold all the time!

Don’t forget the leather insert that provides just a touch of fashionable flare.
Everyone needs a faithful pair of blue jeans, sure, but every outdoor enthusiast needs a faithful pair of insulated blue jeans. Aside from an optional cuff at the bottom, Eddie Bauer’s fleece-lined jeans look like any other pair of loose fit jeans from the outside. Inside, however, they’re beholden to a soft and supple secret: a fleece lining that’ll keep the wearer warm even in the most frigid casual environments.
Down jackets are great but most of them definitely fall on the technical side of the style spectrum. At least until Fjallraven released the Greenland Down Liner Jacket. With 600 fill premium goose down, this slim jacket locks in a surprising amount of heat… without making the wearer look like a puffed up marshmallow.
Casual in appearance, this jacket serves a technical function as well, with a DWR water-shedding exterior and the ability to easily layer under a shell or even another insulated jacket.
It’s everyone’s favorite Patagonia puffy, but in a stylishly sleeveless design.

The Coal Harbor beanie may look like a basic acrylic beanie… and it is, but it also comes in a great range of solid earthy tones that can quite literally cap off any winter ensemble.
Whether it be for driving, biking, chopping firewood or taking a romantic Christmas sleigh ride, you just really can’t go wrong with these Hestra gloves.

All the leather is tanned with vegetable dyes, so rest easy knowing that they come with a minimal environmental footprint or…. handprint.
You can’t go wrong giving the gift of flannel. Especially if that flannel has G-1000 polyester fabric reinforcements to add durability to high-wear areas. That’s what makes the Fjallraven Skog Flannel Shirt an ideal flannel for outdoorsmen. Well, that and the fact that it really brings the whole lumberjack look to life.

Now there’s a shoe that’s a step ahead of the rest!
The Hippy Tree Moab Pants are geared for desert rats who live to explore the sandstone crags and hidden slot canyons of the southwest. Made of durable stretch cotton, these provide excellent mobility and breathability in hot, arid climates. That may make them a less ideal garment for the cold temperatures of the holiday season itself, but they’re the perfect gift for anyone planning a desert climbing getaway.
With billowy legs and a gusseted inseam, they won’t bind, pinch, or limit movement, even among pursuits that demand leg mobility.
For low output activities, like being a pal and volunteering to belay your bud on a long sport projecting session, the Rho Lightweight Torrent™ zip neck provides the perfect level of non-bulky layering. It’s buttery soft fabric and flatlock seams make it suitable for wear as a base layer and its trim, sleek design makes it equally suitable as a casual pullover for grabbing drinks at the bar.
If you reeeeaaallly want to go all out on a gift this holiday season, the Canada Goose Banff Parka is the way to go. As the absolute top of the line in both winter warmth and brand-name fashion, this parka doesn’t run cheap, but it’s an investment that will last the wearer darn near a lifetime.
Premium goose down and waterproof shell aside, this jacket spares no expense on the high-quality details, from the removable coyote fur ruff to the genuine leather-trimmed cuffs. This parka provides military-grade element protection for the most absolutely frigid environments, all while looking even cooler than the air it’s keeping out.
The only thing that might be better than a flannel shirt is a flannel shirt with a fuzzy fleece lining. Stay warm and cozy while looking cool and casual!
If you’ve ever worn Patagonia’s performance denim, you’ll be ruined for all other kinds of blue jeans. These classic silhouette pants fit right into any casual setting, while the unique fabric makes them suitable for wearing in the mountains. The secret is a small blend of Coolmax polyester with the organic cotton denim, bestowing these pants with all the durability of cotton but none of its unfortunate moisture retention. Top that off with a DWR finish and you’ve got a pair of blue jeans that won’t instantly become be the most uncomfortable thing ever worn in a slight rain spell.
Burton’s Approach Mittens may well be the most stylish pair of technical gloves around. They feature a texturized waterproof outer and extra-long cuff designed to overlap the jacket sleeve. Say goodbye to that awkward patch of exposed skin that can just never seem to be covered by both!
The full leather Screen Grab palm provides grip and dexterity on ski poles, steering wheels, and smartphone screens alike.
These days, everyone has a Synchilla Snap-T fleece pullover (are you even an outdoor-living hipster if you don’t?). But what few people possess are Patagonia’s equally cozy Synchilla Snap-T fleece pants. Made of soft, pill-resistant recycled polyester fleece sewn with a gusseted crotch design, these pants can be worn either as a heavyweight baselayer for winter pursuits or as an ultra-warm pair of PJs. We happen to have it on good authority that these are the winter vanlifer’s number one pick for van jammies.

Naturally, it also features Patagonia’s famously spacious kangaroo front pocket, perfect for keeping something as large as a few cans of beer from freezing on a frigid winter outing.
If you’re shopping for the most hardcore of outdoor athletes and those who put prefer a good old fashion sufferfest to traditional holiday festivities, opt for the top-of-the-line Arc’teryx Fission SV.
