1. A&E Coffee Roasters – Must-have holiday blend for coffee lovers!

Gift Idea – Holiday Blend 2017

A&E Coffee Roasters keeps us caffeinated here at FirstTracks. Quality, sustainability, and the finest coffees and exciting teas are what this New Hampshire company is all about! A&E has offered a unique holiday blend coffee every year for the past 7 years — and it’s always a crowd pleaser! We highly recommend this year’s blend featuring rich-velvet flavor, crafted to be enjoyed by all coffee lovers. As A&E says, “it should reflect the image of holding a warm mug of coffee, wearing your most comfortable clothes, sitting by the hearth surrounded by family and friends: completely yourself.”

2. Annalee – Holiday decor that makes you smile!

Gift Idea – Holiday Elves

Since 1934, Annalee has been creating jolly and whimsical holiday elves! If you visit FirstTracks around the holidays (well, any time of the year) you may spot these magical elves around our office. They are completely pose-able and widely known for adding festive cheer and causing a bit of mischief. One of the best ways to enjoy their magic is to pose them in funny and entertaining positions! Many families have made a tradition out of posing an elf in different locations for the next lucky passerby. They are also the perfect topper for holiday gifts!

All the designs are the original work of Leigh Standley, the creative force behind all of Curly Girl. If you visit us at FirstTracks you will notice the artwork adorning our marketing office, reminding us everyday that “one must possess a little faith, a little moxie, and a great deal of enthusiasm.”

Gift Idea – Good Dog Gear

Wanna look stylish and be comfortable? Of course you do! Check out the full line of Good Dog apparel and merch! What could be more fun? On most of the apparel, you can choose which Good Dog design to rep! Are you a watch dog, wine dog, namaste dog, stand-up paddle dog, ice cream dog, fishing dog, or just a good old beach dog? Most of us at FirstTracks have a cozy Good Dog shirt or hoodie — and on Fridays our set of Good Dog pint glasses often makes an appearance. So this holiday, make it a year of coziness with a Good Dog must-have pullover, sail away tee, and/or the oh-so-cozy lazy dog flannels.

5. Douglas Cuddle Toy – Snuggly gifts for the young at heart!

Gift Idea – Rescue Pups

For more than 60 years, Douglas has been creating high-quality plush animals and incredible baby gifts. There is nothing on that we wouldn’t cozy up with! The fantastical mermaids and incredible selection of unicorns have been all the rage this year. And we have fallen hard for their NEW rescue pups. Douglas has long been known for their breed-specific designs and have the stuffed dog market covered from Akita to Yorkie. But this year they introduced a line of pups that represent the mutts (and office mascots) in our lives. Is “rescued” your favorite breed? Then Douglas has the ideal gift for you. You also can feel great about this purchase. Douglas proudly supports dog rescue efforts and humane societies across North America.

8. Orsden – For those who don’t hibernate!

Gift Idea – Winter Jacket

Shopping for someone who loves to play in the snow? Shocked by the price tags and uninspired by the outdated or unflattering designs of winter outerwear, Orsden founder Sara Segall was inspired to create a direct-to-consumer skiwear company! Based in Vermont, Orsden offers affordable luxury and premium performance apparel to those who embrace the alpine life — from the slopes to après and beyond. We love Orsden’s style and, like Sara, keep thinking snow! (Well at least some of us.) After all, the FirstTracks name is inspired by a love of carving up fresh powder.
