Merino Wool Holiday Gifts They'll Love - Minus33

With the Holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time to start considering those perfect gifts for all your loved ones, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our guide is sure to help inspire some ideas, even for those impossible-to-shop for friends and family. From Dad who would rather be outside in nature and Mom who would rather be indoors with a good book staying warm, to your friends who hit the mountain a few times a week or spend every weekend morning ice fishing, we have ideas for all your outdoor adventurers.

A Wool Classic For Her & Him

The White Mountain Sportsman Shirt is back!  Made from 80% fine wool, Minus33’s new Sportsman Shirt is both softer (non-scratchy) and more substantial than comparable guide shirts, making it a true shirt jacket (aka, “shirt-jac” or “shacket”), weighing in at nearly two pounds (34.4 oz) for a size large.  Its classic bushcraft lumberjack styling provides a timeless design for outdoor enthusiasts.

Our Sportsman Shirt is generously cut to accommodate easy cold-weather layering without restricting freedom of movement. Its durable fabric is perfect for hunting, cold-weather work, and outdoor activities.

Expedition Weight Layers For Extra Cold Weather

For those who live for icy or snowy adventures.  Check out our Expedition Collection! Originally designed for winter mountaineering on Mount Washington, this collection has been used in both the Arctic and the Antarctic and even to the Summit of Mount Everest and can be used as a base, mid or outer layer. Some of our favorites include the Men's and Women’s ¼ zips, and our Expedition Hoodies for both Men and Women.

Midweight Layers For Everyday Warmth

When it comes to layering, the winter months are what usually come to mind. Wearing base layers under your pants to brace for the cold temperatures or layering before skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling are to be expected, but what about the shoulder seasons? Like in the spring and fall when it’s still cold in the morning but feels like summer in the afternoon? It’s for these reasons that our Midweight Collection is perfect for everyone in your life. The Franconia Bottoms for Women and the Kancamagus Bottoms for Men are our best-selling base layer bottoms for a reason. No matter what they’re layering for, Merino Wool will keep you and your loved ones warm and cozy when it’s cold and cool and comfortable when it’s hot. Check out our matching Midweight Tops and 1/4 Zips for the perfect base layer set!

Our White Mountain Woolen Blanket Collection is available in 2 sizes, our 62" x 80" Camp and larger 65" x 90" Lodge styles.  With a variety of colors, these make the perfect throw blankets for the couch, an extra layered blanket with your comforter in the winter, or use in the warmer months for camping trips. Fire-resistant properties make it an excellent choice for cozying up to a bonfire or close to the wood stove no matter the time of year.
