We’ve scoured the neighborhood this year in search of memorable gifts that suit a variety of occasions, from holiday get-togethers to Valentine’s Day celebrations.
1. The first rule of winter adventure in Oregon: don’t let a little rain stop you. It helps to wear these long, fire-enginered Ilse Jacobsen rain boots from Rachelle M. Rustic House of Fashion. 2. Filson’s plaid shirt and goosedown cruiser vest with removable hood also offer plenty of warmth and protection from the elements. 3. Time your trek or ski run with these sturdy yet timelessly fashionable leather watches, also from Filson. 4. After a long day in the woods, you’ll want this stainless steel Areaware bottle opener, available at EWF Modern, to crack open your favorite craft beer. 5. Keep the sun or rain out of your eyes with a sturdy but stylish Patagonia Bear Heaven Roger That cap. 6. Buy your favorite duffer a gift certificate from Golf in the Pearl for lessons or practice time on the state-of-the-art Trackman Indoor Golf Simulator. 7. Feeling nesty after that long stroll on the beach in Manzanita or hike to Angel’s Rest in the Columbia Gorge? Stop by Powell’s to pick up Cabin Porn: Inspiration for your quiet place somewhere. 8. Make your tent feel like home—or a hip jazz club—with the Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell 2.0 Rugged Wireless Boom Box from REI. 9. Oblation Papers carries these whimsical—and outdoorsy-themed— letterpress gift tags.
