I’m so glad Lord + Taylor reached out recently to ask if we’d look at some of their holiday gifting ideas like Sorel boots, cashmere sweaters and puffer coats . . . because the combination immediately made me think of Sugarloaf Mountain, a favorite local hike with a gorgeous view. Marquette was once ranked as one of the best outdoor towns in the United States (which is somewhat ironic if you know me), but living here we kind of take for granted how cool our city really is.
Everyone who grows up here goes up Sugarloaf all the time, so Zack & I couldn’t explain why we hadn’t done it in years. Well, we could–having kids, working, dealing with LIFE on a daily basis . . . it’s easy to get caught up in being busy and not taking advantage of the cool opportunities around you. So, we did it. And it was fun, and the view was gorgeous, and it was a great date night that was a bit different from our usual. (That is, when we get to have a date night.) So, this indoor girl is encouraging you to get out there and do some outdoor adventuring of your own.

Three Great Gift Ideas for Outdoor Lovers

1. Cashmere Sweaters
Cashmere sweaters make a great gift. Lightweight but warm (the two-ply cashmere yarn can insulate up to three times more effectively than regular sheep’s wool), they’re perfect for layering and, of course, super soft.

2. Sorel Boots
I cannot recommend Sorel boots enough. They are SO comfortable and warm, and there are a ton of cute styles. And yes, the ones I’m wearing in the pictures do have a wedge heel . . . but they were still comfortable to hike in. And I love them. (Did I mention they’re waterproof?)

3. Puffer Coats
I personally wouldn’t be able to get through the winter without a good puffer. S13 makes ones that are warm and comfy, but don’t make you look like a giant marshmallow. I love the details like detachable faux-fur hoods and fleece cuffs with thumbholes.
