Gifts to Stay Warm With Backcountry

Tis’ the season to bundle up! Winter has arrived and it’s time to layer up. Living in the Pacific Northwest, winters can be brutal. The temps drop and it’s rare that I leave the house without looking like a snowman, bundled from head to toe. This year, Christmas came early. E and I both needed new winter gear that was equal parts warm and stylish. We found exactly what we were looking for at Backcountry!

For the past few years, we have shopped Backcountry for all our outerwear needs. They have a huge selection of boots, jackets, scarves and hats, as well as fashionable lifestyle pieces for everyday! They carry our favorite brands, like North Face, Patagonia, Sorel, Marmot and even Free People. There is something for everyone and it makes taking on the winter chill AND your Christmas shopping list a lot easier!

With Christmas just days away…have you finished your shopping? Check out E and I’s top picks for gifts to stay warm below!

As much as I enjoy the snow, I hate being cold! The North Face Down Sierra Hooded Parka is what any girl who hates the cold dreams of! It’s insulated, making it extremely warm, and perfect for the girl on the go! The North Face Campshire 2.0 Hooded Pullover Fleece makes for a super cozy gift! It’s sherpa fabric is fuzzy and soft and traps body heat meaning you are toasty warm! Backcountry also has a huge selection of beanies and mittens that make great stocking stuffers! I love this beanie and these mittens because they slightly match. They would make a great gift set for any girl in your life!

E isn’t bothered by the cold as much as I am, and prefers lighter, easy to move in layers. The North Face Down Sierra Snap Jacket was my gift to him. He loves the modern look. It can be worn out in the snow, or paired casually over street clothes. The North Face Gordon Lyons Full-Zip Hoodie is a great gift for any man in your life! We got one for my dad, father-in-law and brother last year and they wear them almost year round. They are light, but still cozy and great zip up fleeces for layering.

At the very top of both of our winter wear gift lists are Sorel Boots. I got my first pair a few years ago, and now own multiple pairs. We figured it was time to get E a pair and now he is hooked! Sorel boots are a MUST for anyone ready to take on ice and snow in the winter.

The Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge boots are my favorite. The wedge gives it a trendy, modern look, but that doesn’t mean they lack stability. They are extremely comfortable, warm, easy to walk in and have amazing traction. I love wearing mine in the classroom in the winter too!

E’s Sorel picks are the Cheyanne Metro Lace Up boot. Since getting them, he has gone on and on about how comfortable they are and a total game changer in the snow. They are durable and are a classic that won’t be going out of style any time soon!

Layering from Fall to Winter with Backcountry

Living in the Pacific Northwest, we get to fully experience all 4 seasons. It’s one of the reasons I love most about living in our small town. Fall transitions to winter slowly, but the temperatures can be a little sporadic during this time. I’ve learned the key is layering and investing in pieces that can taken from one season to the next, and always find what I need at Backcountry!

For the past few years, I have purchased all my outerwear at Backcountry. They have SO many options when it comes to boots, jackets, scarves, hats and even fashionable lifestyle pieces that can be worn everyday! Backcountry carries all of my favorite brands, from Patagonia and North Face to Free People and Sorel. This makes layering up for chilly weather easy, practical and fashionable!

We live just minutes away from the mountains and have been doing a bit of exploring this fall. Each time we head out for a little weekend day date, I’ve been layering up as I never know where we are going to end up! Last weekend, we had plans to get lunch and do a little shopping in the the nearby town of Leavenworth, but ended up taking the scenic route and stopping to explore. We discovered a bridge that led to a hiking path and couldn’t stop ourselves from heading up the mountain!

In that moment, I was so thankful I was wearing my Patagonia Prairie Dawn Insulated Parka. I was drawn to this jacket for the color and longer length. I ended up being even more surprised by how warm and cozy it is! It’s sherpa lined and made of durable canvas. It’s great for everyday, or an outdoor adventure.

I had thoughtfully topped off my outfit with warm accessories before leaving, because I knew we could end up spending some time outside. It’s rare that I leave the house this time of year without a beanie, and this Columbia Winter Blur Pom Pom Beanie is cute AND warm. Lined with micro-fleece, this is an extremely cozy and practical option. My Pistil Bray Scarf would make a great gift for anyone living in a cold climate. It’s another practical piece, but the print is so much fun and brightens up any neutral outfit.

Sorel boots are a MUST for anyone ready to take on ice and snow in the winter. I got the Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge II Shearling Boot last year and was so impressed, I ended up purchasing the Sorel Joan of Arctic Wedge II Cozy Boot this year. While these are wedge boots, they are extremely comfortable, easy to walk in, warm and toasty AND have amazing traction! We had multiple ice storms last year and I never had any issues getting around in my Sorel’s! During this outing, I had to balance on logs and climb over rocks. I had no trouble maneuvering over the terrain!

My sweater and jeans are both Free People pieces found at Backcountry! I was so excited to discover one of my all time favorite brands and that I could make Backcountry a one stop shop for my fall and winter layering needs! The Free People Angelic Pullover is the coziest oversized sweater. I size down in this brand because it runs oversized. This sweater is long enough to wear with leggings, which I love! My jeans are the Free People Raw High Rise Jegging, and so comfortable! Unlike the sweater, these run a bit small, so size up!
