Okay whaaat... can we talk about how freaking perfect this Pendleton Wool fanny pack is? Originally founded in Oregon, Western Bound Goods now operates out of Bozeman, Montana, sourcing materials from US companies and creating gorgeous PNW-inspired bags that are meant to last. I'll take five. Thanks! $129
Rachel Pohl Art Ski Buff
I recently purchased one of her prints on a ski buff and it got me so stoked for the season ($20)! But that's not all she sells–purchase one of her prints on yoga mats, backpacks, prints, masks, wallets, notebooks, chalk bags, laptop cases, puzzles, leggings, stickers, and more.
You know I love my yellow beanies, and this one didn't leave my head for an entire year. YES, I showered. Jeeeez. But forreal. This Ballard shop has some of the BEST handmade products I've seen (most of which are leather). There's no bad purchase when it comes to Uphill. Seriously. But this Saffron beanie is a great place to start. $30
Rami, the founder of FTGU, is one hell of a Seattle-based entrepreneur, and when he found an opportunity to combine his passion for the outdoors with high-tech comfort and giving back to the natural places we love to explore, he went all in.
His high-quality, merino wool hiking socks sport fire lookouts, the Cascades, and more iconic PNW destinations. Snag yourself a pair and protect our trails and public lands in the process! $22
What's better than waking up in the outdoors to a steaming hot cup of coffee? Literally nothing. But having a cute camp mug is pretty darn close. I have a small collection of enamel mugs going, and this one is next on my list! $12.99
Welp, there goes all my $$$. This Washington-based shop features some of the best thrifting I've ever seen. The owner, Michelle Moore, has some serious style–I don't know how she doesn't keep all these clothes for herself. The shop also features local and handmade items! Prices vary.
Every PNW hiker needs a baseball cap to keep the sun (and rain) out of their eyes, so why not get one that sports a mountain we all know and love?
Mt. Rainier Watch started on Twitter back in 2013 to keep up on Washington's local weather. And by weather I mean when the "mountain is out." Doesn't get more Washington than that! $30
Yes, I have a thing for yellow, and this sweatshirt from Wish You Were Northwest (a Seattle-based company) is the perfect addition to your PNW camping and adventure wardrobe. We all could use an extra pop of color on those dreary days! $64
Claire Giordano is a PNW-based environmental artist who tells the stories of climate change, science, and the modern experience of nature. And let's be honest, she's incredible and her work would make a killer gift for anyone who loves the PNW. Here's one of my faves! $13
I can't even tell you how many epic fire lookouts this wonderful book led me to. Open the cover to find a map of all the lookouts with directions, tips, trail specs, and more for each. Highly recommend if you're looking to explore some of Washington's coolest pieces of history! $18
This Spokane-based business creates gorgeous handmade ceramic mugs. The mountain one is my fave!! Why? Because you can enjoy the mountains even on the days you can't make the trip.
This DIY Dopp Kit by Wooland–a women-owned, Portland-based bag-making shop–is both a fun activity and a useful adventure bag. The kit comes with pre-cut, marked, and ready-to-sew fabric, high-quality leather tabs, metal rivets, and an instruction book. There are so many cute colors to choose from! $70
Bring your favorite PNW adventures indoors with TimPlusApril's gorgeous prints! The Tacoma-founded shop does everything from polygonal mountain designs to city grids, but my favorites are definitely these topographic maps of PNW mountains. $20
