You are here

Katherine Donnelly | 12.06.2017

We know it can sometimes be hard to stop and ask for directions. You may be thinking to yourself, “I know exactly what to do here, and I don’t need any help.” Whoa, tiger. Put down your axe and come on inside for a little fireside chat. We all need a little help sometimes. Particularly when it comes to selecting meaningful gifts that will not only bring a smile to your favorite lady’s face, but that will also last a lifetime. We’re gonna let you in on a little secret: Your girlfriend probably doesn’t want a diamond necklace or a mall-bought trinket with a pretty box and a bow. Ew. No. She’s not into sparkles. She’s a hustler and wants a gift she can actually use and that blends beauty with functionality.

We’ve curated an amazing list of hand-selected products from the ladies over at Wylder Goods. From outerwear to artisan jewelry, these gifts will be a sure-fire way to bring some holiday cheer to the outdoorswomen in your life!

“Our marketplace is a trusted resource for outdoor women. We cut through the retail noise to bring our customers fresh new goods from socially responsible brands and female artisans. A majority of the brands we carry are women-owned and operated, and we’re proud to give them a platform. We’re most excited about our exclusive products—goods  you can only find in the Wylder shop! Our Wolf Ceramics Cerulean Sky Mug is gorgeous, as are the Alaska-inspired hair forks made by Bri Bol. We’re also loving our beautiful MZ Fair Trade bags, made by skilled weavers in Oaxaca, and our new Woven Wyld earrings beaded by Salt Lake local, Em Wylder. Folks should shop our store this holiday season because we curate gifts that are thoughtfully-designed, built to last, and support female business owners. We think that’s a win/win/win."
