For my dad

Foehn Brise Pant

Had the pleasure of leading my dad up his first climb in Yosemite this past summer and we quickly realized his pants weren’t up to the demands of the wall. These technical hardworking adventure pants will be perfect for our future summit bids.

For my brother
U-Turn Audio Orbit Plus w/ Preamp

My brother’s a bit of an audiophile to say the least. He’ll love the superb sound quality and classically handsome looks of this turntable by U-Turn Audio.

For my dad
TRX Strong System

The gym isn’t for everyone, and it’s definitely not for my dad (who is too cheap to join the local YMCA). I wanted to get him something he’ll actually use, so this anytime, anywhere workout set is perfect.

For my sister

Sunski Sunglasses

Sunglasses never go out of style, but they do get lost, so chances are she’ll be stoked to have another pair of these on hand.

For my mom

Glerups Slippers

My mom is always cold and loves anything cozy, so these Glerups are a can’t-miss .

For my mom
Norden 3 Candle Gift Box Set

Growing up, my mom only had the nicest candles in the house and my childhood memory is packed full of nostalgic scents. Naturally, I wanted to gift her some of my favorite candles that I've discovered since working here at Huckberry. She also loves gardening, so I know she'll be able to use the stoneware as planters after she’s done burning the candles.

For my dad

Patagonia Fjord Flannel Shirt Jacket

Fishing has been a bonding activity for the Sapp family for as long as I can remember. My father and I have a fly fishing trip to Heber Springs, Arkansas, coming up, and I know this shirt jacket will serve him well both in and out of the water.

For my brother

UBi-IND Apron

My older brother is notorious for being the toughest person in the world to shop for—I love him, but I never know what to get him. But I do know he loves smoking and BBQing huge briskets and fine meats. So, getting him a heavy-duty apron for all his messy, smoking ventures is exactly what he needs to keep his title of “Grill Master” alive and well.

For my dad
Uuni 3 Wood-Fire Pizza Oven

I’m getting my dad the Uuni 3 Wood-Fire Pizza Oven because he has been talking about making wood-fired pizzas on the patio for years, and now he will have no excuse not to whip some out for the family.

For my brother

Proof Rover Pant

My brother works on an Alaskan glacier, so he needs clothes that are not only durable and breathable but versatile enough to wear all season long.

For my friend

Demerbox Bluetooth Boombox

One of my best friends is heading on a ski trip this winter through BC, and I know the Demerbox will be an awesome companion. And knowing the way he travels, he’ll appreciate that it’s waterproof and runs for 50+ hours on one charge.

For my nephews
Sled Legs

I picked up a couple pairs of sled legs for my nephews this year, because you know I'm ditching the adults’ table as quickly as possible to join them out on the slopes.

For my brother

Vetra Wool Chore Coat

My older brother is somewhat of a minimalist when it comes to his wardrobe, so I picked a coat that’ll work for a wide range of occasions and pairs well with just about anything he has in his closet.

For my mom

Cavalier Portable Speaker

My mom introduced me to a lot of great music while I was growing up by handing down her old vinyl records from the ‘70s. It’s about time I return the favor and upgrade her home audio setup.

For my younger brother
Suit Pacific Shirt

My younger brother is always sending me pictures of outfits that he wants to get for the season. I remember one of the looks having this amazing corduroy jacket, so I was excited to grab this for him to help complete his fall/winter look.

For my dad

Muck Boot Chelsea

My parents live in North Carolina and are outdoors a lot. My dad loves something that he can wear outside do a little work and then go up to the bar for dinner and beers with his friends, so this boot is perfect for him.

For my twin

Buffalo Jackson Dakota Waxed Canvas Weekender

My twin brother does a lot of quick trips for work and likes to look good while traveling. This duffel bag is perfect for that, very nice, durable fabric (leather and canvas), so I know this is something he will use for a long time.

For my younger brother and his fiancé
Material Knives

Once you invest in a good knife, you only wish you’d done it sooner. My brother and soon to be sister-in-law love to cook but have been using my mismatched hand-me-downs for too long. Material has the Goldilocks of kitchen knives: They cut like butter, look great, and you don’t need to take out a loan for them—a great joint gift.

For my husband

Naglev Unico Hiker

My husband is outside climbing (and hiking to climb ) most weekends, especially in the winter. He’s very picky about quality footwear. This product is going to blow his mind. Italian father and daughter team in the Dolomites designed an all-weather, all-terrain hiking boot out of ultra-durable fibers and coconut that looks just as good in town—so badass. These are my favorite product discovery of the year.

For stuffing the stockings
Basics

I’m also stuffing stockings with my favorite basics—soft tees, organic cotton undies, and Ursa Major deodorant. (This deodorant is downright addictive. The best natural deodorant on the market hands down, no question.)
