Cue the Mariah Carey and track down which streaming service is showing "Love, Actually" (It is Peacock!!) for the holidays are upon us once more. This year, Leslie and I sat down and picked out a few items for all of the people on your shopping list.
Ace of Base
Scandinavians build every outfit from the base layers out, so we thought we would start there. For women, Kari Traa sets the standard with all kinds of tops and bottoms. Leslie recommends the Rose Hood and High Waisted Pants (see below). You can find all of the base layers for her here.
Vestivus for the Rest of Us.
Vests might be our favorite article of clothing...so versatile and stylish. Nate's current favorite is the L.I.M. Down Vest by Haglofs (see below). Our most popular vest for men is the gorgeous merino Assar vest by Ivanhoe. Leslie's latest obsession are the new colors in the Eva Down Vest by Kari Traa
If their favorite Billy Joel song is "The Downeaster Alexa" then...consider the Anchor Rollneck;
Not interested in Zippers? Leslie loves her Karin Cardigan from Jumperfabriken (see below)
Let's face it...some people are hard to buy for. We are here to help.
For those with sustainability on the mind, the Undyed wool collection by Ivanhoe is perfect in a men's half-zip, women's crew, a hat, leg-warmers (!!!) and the cutest poncho we have seen...check out the details about Undyed wool on the product pages!
For those that like something different we have our Only at Aktiv section which highlights the brands we carry that are almost impossible to find in the United States. A few items of note are the pajamas from Dagsmejan, the camping supplies from Kupilka and everything from Iceland's own, 66North.
That about wraps it up from us but if you have specific requests, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find something for everyone on your list!!

Enjoy and remember,"There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing."
