Crane’s Holiday Gift Guide: Helping You Find the Perfect Present

The holidays are almost here. It’s time for colder weather, hot cocoa and presenting your loved ones with the perfect gifts. Sometimes finding a gift that hits the mark is easier said than done. If you’re still hunting for holiday gift ideas, don’t sweat it!

Crane’s Country Store has what you need to make this holiday one to remember. We’ve compiled a list of 10 holiday must-haves sure to fit every person on your shopping list.

Holiday Gifts for Her

Are you shopping for your wife, mother, daughter or friend? Our selection of women’s clothing and accessories includes stylish brands like Pendleton, Filson and The Normal Brand. Whether she needs clothing to withstand the elements or layers to cozy up in by the fireplace, we’ve got something she will appreciate this holiday season.

1. Cozy Sweaters

Crisp December air and the prospect of flurries add up to one thing: sweater weather. Wool sweaters are quick-drying, and they trap heat to keep you warm. Wool retains its shape longer than other fabrics, which means a wool sweater is a gift that will be enjoyed for many winters to come.

The Pendleton Glacier Stripe sweater is made of 100% merino wool, so it’s sure to keep her nice and toasty on frosty days.

2. Snuggly Sherpa

Give the gift of comfort and style this holiday with a sherpa jacket or coat. Sherpa gets its name from its fuzzy, deep polyester pile—material that feels like wearing a big blanket. Slightly oversized sherpa or teddy jackets are easy to pull on over several winter layers for added warmth.

Our Pendleton sherpa jackets come in fabulous Glacier Sunset or warm Tan Chimayo.

3. Outerwear for the Elements

Down and waxed cotton is the perfect combination for everyday wear or epic outdoor adventures. Help your loved one stay warm this winter with versatile layers made to keep cold weather out. Crane’s Country Store has durable women’s jackets, pullovers and coats from Carhartt, Filson and Stormy Kromer.

Holiday Gifts for Him

Need something unique for the men in your life? Give a gift your father, brother, husband or best friend will be proud to use. You will find something he will enjoy from our wide selection of men’s clothing, accessories and body care products.

4. Durable Work Jackets

Whether he’s wearing it for a day of work or a winter hike, any outdoorsman will appreciate an insulated vest or jacket. Buy him outerwear made of thick, sturdy, water-repellent cotton that will hold up no matter what his everyday activities are. Crane’s Country Store carries several Carhartt and Filson jackets, so he can do what he loves regardless of the weather.

5. Specialty Beard Care Kits

Upgrade his daily grooming routine. Beard balm and beard oil are just the ticket for the man who takes pride in his facial hair. Beard care products will help him soften, moisturize and style his beard for a fuller look and shape. Duke Cannon makes products essential for every man’s beard and body routine. Plus, a portion of every Duke Cannon purchase gives back to veterans across the country.

Wrap up this Big Bourbon Beard Kit or choose individual products for a fun stocking stuffer.

6. Leather Wallets

A classic leather wallet never goes out of fashion. Show people you care with a durable gift they will use every day. Wallets come in several styles, including tri-fold, foldover, front pocket and zip. With many options to choose from, you’ll find a wallet for the minimalist who only needs a few cards and the person who carries everything with them.

The Dawson Leather Zip Wallet has permanent waterproof protection and a buttery finish.

8. Duffle or Tote Bags

Do you know any weekend travelers? Is anyone looking for a computer bag to take to work or a duffle for the gym? Duffle and tote bags are versatile gifts that can be used for weekend getaways, camping trips and even grocery shopping.

Our water-repellent Filson Rugged Twill Totes come in four gorgeous colors.

9. Pocket Knives

Are you struggling to find a stocking stuffer that’s nicer than candy canes and a toothbrush? Steel pocket knives make practical gifts for everyone on your list. You can find single, multi-blade and multi-tool pocket knives with varying blade types and styles. Some knives are better for day-to-day activities. Others are best for hunting or self-defense. A tip to choosing a pocket knife is to base your choice on how the person will carry and use it.

The Case Medium Stockman features three blades for an all-purpose pocket knife.

10. Wool Throws

Nothing is better than curling up with a warm blanket on bitter winter nights. Wool throws are a luxurious addition to any bedroom or living room. A wool blanket makes a great gift for outdoor lovers too. You can take wool throws camping to stay toasty and dry in your tent or by the campfire.

The Pendleton Steamship Throw is a custom-woven cotton and wool blend.
