A Thoughtful. . .Climbing Rope for Christmas?

Men, this Christmas, give your sporty sweetie the gift that says, "I was thinking of you. Not me and how much I love climbing gear. You. And how much you now love thoughtful, romantic me because I got you:

a. An ecologically-sound necklace. Oooh, shiny.

b. A bottle of the first wine we ever shared. Remember?

c. Something I made by hand. There's only one like it, and I made it just for you.

d. Flowers. But not the kind that die in three days: nope, these come in a planter and return every year.

e. An artistic tchotchke for outdoorsy types that isn't technically, you know, gear. (Man, I love gear.)

f. A bunch of those spendy organic chocolate bars from the co-op. Why? Chocolate helps boost the immune system and it's packed with antioxidants and mood boosters.

g. Nothing. I was broke, so I bought an inexpensive bottle of sweet almond oil and gave your poor tired outdoorswoman-muscles an hour of lovin' rubbin'. I even lit some candles. And cleaned up before you got here so you wouldn't have to. Um, could I be any more romantic?

Well… I got you a climbing rope, too."




For more ideas about how to please your honey this Valentine's Day and not lose your status as profound outdoorsperson, we recommend outdoorgiftworks.com, tarmadesigns.com, or Northern Lights. Barrel, Bob Ward’s, and Helly Hansen are also good starts.
