The temps are dropping, the days are short, twinkling lights are everywhere, and the local radio station is playing “Jingle Bell Rock,” “White Christmas,” and literally nothing else. That’s right folks, the holidays are here. Since it’s the season of giving, and we know many of you are like us and need help figuring out that perfect gift, we thought it would be fun for Worn & Wound team members to share some holiday gift ideas. Over the coming days you’ll see suggestions in a range of price points and categories, with a few great selections from the Windup Watch Shop thrown in for good measure. Enjoy, and happy holidays!
Ah, the holidays are upon us. While I adore all the festivities and dedicated time with the family, I have to be honest — the whole gift-giving thing used to really stress me out. It still does to some degree! But in recent years, I’ve implemented a much more practical strategy to my gift-giving, and I’ve taken that approach with this guide: below are suggestions featuring things that I’ve actually used or things that I’ve personally purchased this year and still own. So if you need a new jacket, some stationery, or some easy-to-drink whisky, then I’m pretty sure I’ve got you covered.
Hill City Thermal Light Shirt Jacket
One of my favorite pieces of outerwear this fall has been my Hill City Thermal Light Shirt Jacket. One of its best qualities is right in the name: it’s light. Cold-weather clothes can be overly heavy, and it’s easy to rack up the pounds if you’re layering. As a commuter who carries a book bag and has a pretty long walk, I don’t like to be weighed down with heavy layers. This piece is insulated with PrimaLoft Gold Active+ (made from 55% post-consumer recycled material sourced from plastic bottles) and has a thin nylon exterior, so it offers that extra bit of protection against the cold without being cumbersome on the body. Plus, it breathes well, so I don’t have any issues regulating heat should the temperature fluctuate throughout the day. I went with the Navy, but there’s a handful of other colors that look just as good. If you’re looking for a nice fall jacket, and one that can possibly take you through the winter months in some parts of the country, then you’ll definitely want to check it out.
