It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and although the best gift you can give your skiing sweetheart is spending time together on the slopes, we know that sometimes you need a little something more. If you’re grabbing your Valentine, ski buddy, or anybody who needs a little piece of the mountains in their life, stop in the James and Parry’s and discover the unique selection of Colorado mountain keepsakes and gifts. Here are some of our favorites:
For the skier/snowboarder who…
Only rides C-Chair (or aspires to)
We know the C-Lot and C-Chair crew loves two things – Mary Jane Territory and a good time. We have options for giving them both! Grab a No Pain, No Jane flask or grab a 6 pack of New Belgium’s Mary Jane Ale for the bump or tree loving skier in your life.
Wants to bring some of the mountain home
Make the mountains part of the home down the street or the home across the country. Your decor friends who are really channeling their inner “Ski Chic” vibe will love this accent pillow.
Puts the LADY in lady shredder
We know that there are lady shredders that rock the snapback and flannel like a second skin and we know there are Mountain Mommas that like to class it up. We’ve got something for both, and for any chica in between, so why not stop by and check out some of the newest items to the inventory like our earrings, necklaces, and other unique jewelry options.
Is all about the wine at après
Wine drinkers in your life will love not having to remember a bottle opener while packing their ski gear, and you won’t have to desperately attempt this brave maneuver of opening a bottle of wine with a ski boot (which we don’t recommend!!) Instead, carry wine in one of these fun canvas wine totes! Or, you could use them for water, since hydration at altitude is important. Then, take a moment to ReWined and enjoy your trip all over again with a wine themed keepsake.
Also loves farmers’ markets
Steamboat’s very own Ranch Organics are featured in Winter Park’s newest shop, so why not surprise a friend who is just dying for farmers’ markets to make their return with this bundle of bath and body products straight from the “real deal ranching life…of Rocky Mountain paradise.”
Is always cold
You and these base layers will score brownie points for the skier on your list who just can’t shake the winter chills on the mountain. The Kari Traa baselayers come from a socially and sustainably responsible Swedish brand that help to support breast cancer research as well as healthy body image in women. And if they are looking for a warm-up off the slopes, brew some hot chocolate and keep this piece of Winter Park mug close at hand.
Has a Sweet Tooth
When all else fails, go for the candy. Treeline Treats has a yummy selection that will satisfy even the pickiest of sweet eaters. Plus, you’ll get a little kickstart with a sugar rush that is perfect for bursts of energy when your take some laps and enjoy each other’s company on the mountain.
