Our Gift Guide to Galentine's

Love is in the air! In honor of the special day ahead, we rounded up a few of our favorite treats: some for adventures ahead and some with local businesses in mind. <3

We also gathered a few of our own love-inspired picks – shop the Skida Valentine's Collection.

1. For the socially-conscious wine connoisseur / Wilder Wines Wine Club
Wilder Wines boasts a selection of natural wines from small producers who are committed to sustainable farming practices. Wine club members receive 2-3 bottles a month, to ease into wine tasting and explore new favorites.

2. For the artsy type / Charlotte Dworshak original painting 
Our team at Skida HQ has huge heart-eyes for Burlington-based artist Charlotte Dworshak's paintings and prints, which often evoke the fleeting stillness of a moment over Lake Champlain.

3. For the fashionista /  Womenfolk Jackson Hole Gift Card
The women behind Womenfolk have built a sophisticated collection of vintage clothing, sure to tickle the fancy of any tireless thrifter.

4. For the one who gives you butterflies / Skida Flutter Brim Hat
Our brand new Valentine's Day print, "Flutter", is inspired by that giddy butterflies feeling we get when sharing chilly mornings and belly laughs on the trail.
