Staff Picks: Best Holiday Gifts for 2019

Chilly air and snow on the ground mean two things. One: that it's time to wax those skis and boards and hit the slopes; and two: the holidays are just around the corner.

We love gathering with friends, family and food to celebrate. And we love it even more when we have the perfect gifts to give. So we asked some of the crew at Topo Designs HQ to share what they’re gifting this season. Read on to see what they said (and feel free to use their ideas for inspiration). 

Dual Shirt

"This is one of my favorite workwear pieces we've done. It really feels like an old favorite, right off the rack. No shortage of pockets either, a nice modern touch." -Rick, Brand Design Manager

Big Puffer Jacket

"I got one of these for my mom for Christmas (don't tell her!). I love the idea of gifting something that is so big and puffy but also so functional. She lives on the western slope, so it will be the perfect coat for her all winter. She's had the same big black puffy since I was about 4, so I’m excited to get her a new one that will last just as long as the first! It's the type of gift that is big in concept, and in person." -Khristian, Apparel Designer

Global Briefcase

"Big Pockets, big organization and big style. This has been my favorite daily carry bag to date. I love the functionality of this bag but don't mind the compliments as well." -James, Director of Marketing

Global Wrap Sweater

"The Global Wrap Sweater is one of my favorite styles from the women's line this fall. It is a super versatile piece in how it can be worn and is really warm and comfy too! The fabric is so awesome, a recycled merino wool from Italy that is a double-knit fabric. You get all the great properties from wool without the itch. Wear it kimono style, cardigan or blazer style, you can't go wrong!"-Rebecca, Key Account Manager

Cinch Tote

"The Cinch Tote is my go-to bag. Whether running errands around town or my weekly visit to the Farmers Market, I refer to this piece as my "Mary Poppins" bag. The amount of space feels endless and yet it's the perfect size! I love that it features multiple pockets on the outside — very subtle but comes in handy and keeps my belongings organized." -Courtney, Customer Experience

Watch Cap

"My Watch Cap is my go-to beanie! I'm definitely going to gift a few this year. I love how thick and soft the material is. Easy and very affordable but totally awesome. I mean, who doesn't love a great new beanie?" -Shaina, Photographer
