Alaska Style Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year…the time for giving! In case you have an Alaska Explorer on your list (or are still working on your own letter to Santa) here are our top Alaska gift picks!

 

Etsy Heart in Alaska

She left a piece of her heart here…

…and she wouldn’t be the first. The My Heart is in Alaska necklace is a great reminder and conversation piece prompting a journey down memory lane and perhaps inspiring the next great Alaska adventure! Visit Etsy for this gift.

 


Quiviet hat

Nothing is warmer than a hat made from Quviut…

…in fact, its downy-soft and lightweight material is 8 times warmer than wool. Naturally shed from the arctic muskox and artfully knit in traditional patterns inspired by the Eskimo culture. Perfect wardrobe addition for Northern Lights chasing! Visit Oomingmak, Musk Ox Producers’ Co-operative for this gift.


Mooseltoe ornament

Like him, Alaskans have a sense of humor…

…and we don’t mind collecting a bit of crap to get to the punchline! We’ve seen moose nuggets collected and repurposed for all kind of thing from jewelry to mosquito repellent — but for the Holiday season, we love these moose nugget ornaments from The Winking Moose! Visit The Winking Moose for this gift.


glacial facial mud bundle

She wants a facial and you want to impress…

…and what is more impressive than a glacial facial! Alaska’s natural resources are bountiful, and Alaska Glacial Mud Co. has harnessed some of those natural resources for your next at-home spa day. Try this gift set! Visit Alaska Glacial Mud Co. for this gift.

 


birch god nuggetsWhen you’re out of ideas, go for the sweet tooth…

…and my oh my do these Alaska Birch Cream Caramels hit the spot! You could do a nice box of assorted chocolates…but why would you when you know each gold foil wrapped bite could offer smooth mineral-rich caramel goodness with a subtle hint of spiciness. Visit Alaska Wild Harvest for this gift.


Alaska seafood and sausage

To explore like an Alaskan is to eat like one…

…and we sure do love our smoke salmon and hunter sticks! We were all downright salivating when we found this Great Alaskan Gift Package from Alaska Sausage and Seafood. Every tasty treat in this package is perfect backpacking or served at a dinner party! Visit Alaska Sausage and Seafood for this gift.


They already have their 2018 trip booked…
