Ladies Crush v2 - Women's Colorado Clothing - Christmas Gift Guide for Women


The Crush v2

There’s a whole list of reasons that The Crush is our top-selling item of all time… and now, we’ve reinvented it to be even better. That means the fabric is even softer, the cut is even more flattering, it’s more comfortable than ever, and the print is more vibrant. In both style and quality, this garment gets top marks and is sure to last for years to come. 

When you give that special lady The Crush v2, you’re giving her our Original 1876 design, complete with the Colorado Flag “C” rising over Denver skyline and the iconic Rocky Mountains. You’re giving her softness and comfort of the highest quality - and a lightweight hoodie she can wear year-round. You’re not just wrapping up a piece of local Colorado clothing; you’re wrapping a sentiment that goes far beyond words: Love.

The Beaver Creek Hat

Is he constantly on-trend and classic at the same time? Does he make looking good seem easy because he’s always so effortlessly put together? The Beaver Creek Hat is the perfect gift for the man with style. Its one of the newest items from our luxury 1876 Lodgepole line - here just in time to wrap brightly and put under the tree. The Beaver Creek is a hat unlike any other, and we’re not kidding when we say that you won’t find anything like it on the market right now.

The Timberline Hoodie

Speaking of the confident, well-appointed man… Meet The Timberline Hoodie, perhaps the most remarkable item we’ve ever made. This one is so good, you may not be able to wait until Christmas morning to give it. We don’t blame you; After all, it is the perfect thing to wear while opening gifts and enjoying breakfast on December 25th. But he won’t want to just wear this at home. We’re willing to bet that this will be his new go-to, no matter the occasion. 

What makes The Timberline Hoodie so remarkable? Well, we’ve put magic into it. That’s the only way it could be this soft right? Close. We worked for months to develop our very own, 1876-exclusive custom finish, a softness accomplished by multiple passes with various hardened steel brushes, followed by honing the resulting fleece-like fibers to a finish that makes wearers say “wow.” Combine that with the Lodgepole Pine emblazoned on the chest, the custom-printed fabric hood liner, subtle print on the back, and leather trim, and all that’s left to make the perfect gift is to wrap it up and put it under the tree.

The Summit Sunglasses

In a state where we get more than 300 days of sun every year, a good pair of sunglasses is absolutely essential. But there’s something better for your eyes (and your style) than a good pair of sunglasses - The Summit Sunglasses from 1876. These shades are elevated, classic, and incredibly safe, and they’re something you won’t find anywhere else on the Colorado market. You don’t even have to wrap them before you gift them, as they come in a custom, solid wood box with a lens cloth and carrying pouch. 

Featuring hand-shaped and polished natural wood arms, broad-spectrum FDA certification, and a wayfarer design with a unified lens, The Summit Sunglasses are perfect as a last Christmas surprise, tucked in a stocking or hidden in the Christmas tree. Paired with the Timberline Hoodie and the Beaver Creek Hat, you can give any special man in your life a brand new, hyper-elevated, high quality look, all backed by our iron-clad 1876 warranty, just in case he... you know.. goes rough on them.

The Lodgepole Mug - Colorado Home Gifts - Christmas Home Gift Guide


The Lodgepole Mug

One of the greatest things about our newest, most unique, and most incredible home items is that it’s a great Christmas gift for just about anyone: coffee drinkers, Mule makers, craft beer connoisseurs, Colorado campers (tent or RV), echinacea enthusiasts, barware buffs, and draft devotees, to name a few. The Lodgepole Mug, part of our new luxury line of items, blows other insulated mugs away. In a league of its own, this stainless steel mug looks streamlined and modern, but packs a serious punch in terms of durability and convenience. With its double-wall vacuum sealed technology, 14 oz capacity, and fully welded design, it can keep your beverage hot or cold for 3 times longer than the average, and it’ll stand up to the wear and tear that inevitably happens to your favorite drinkware. Equally at home on a bar at an Aspen ski retreat, the desk in your corner office, or out in the great, wide, Colorado wilderness, we think under your Christmas tree is the most ideal spot for The Lodgepole Mug.
