Gifts to raise her heart rate
Patagonia Women’s Cashmere Hoody
What could be warmer—or more luxurious—than a cashmere sweater? If you want the holidays to be a little warmer, we suggest you spoil her with this post-slope hoody. Patagonia’s uber-commitment to quality and style longevity make this one to last.
The North Face Women’s Freedom LRBC Ski Pants
The last thing you want is for your lady to complain of cold. These classic ski pants offer unflagging protection from the elements. With low-rise cut around the waist and generous flare to accommodate aggressive boots, these pants are designed with a special venting system to prevent that sweaty feeling.
Ski Logik Goddess Skis
Designed by Colorado ski-maker David Mazzerella, the Goddess is far more than just a softer version of men’s boards with feminine graphics. Featuring a 101 mm waist and carbon-fiber construction, these women-specific fatties float in powder and crush crud.
Dharma Medicines Emotional Tonics
This Colorado-based line of hand-crafted wildflower tonics inspires and uplifts with remedies such as Relax, Balance, Harmony and—uh huh—Love. Slip one in the pocket of her new sweater or tie onto a gift tag for extra credit.
Keen Bern Baby Bern Boot
There’s no suffering for fashion in Keen’s latest women’s boots. Inspired by one of Europe’s most scenic walking cities, the Berns are warm enough for alpine temps but stylish enough for the office. With water-resistant full-grain leather upper and memory-foam footbeds, these kicks will inspire instant boot envy.
Pangea Organics Italian White Sage and Geranium Body Oil
Calming sage and energizing geranium infuse this rich body oil. Organic sunflower, jojoba, olive, coconut and sesame oils create a luscious blend that’s perfect balm for chilly temps.
Haiku Rumi Handbag
Sleek enough for a night on the town but functional enough for serious travel, the Rumi is named for the 13th century sufi poet (hint: we like when you read us Rumi). It’s built from a 100-percent post-consumer recycled-bottle fabric.
Leicia V-LUX 20
Why should guys be the only ones to get gadgests as gifts? A girl can geek out on the sexy Leica V-LUX—the 12.1-megapixel camera features an impressive 12x zoom as well as HD movie recording and GPS tagging. That system lets you record the exact spot where you snapped a shot, so you can prove that you are just as badass as him.
