Very Adirondack Christmas Gifts

Want to shop locally or find a present for the Adirondack geek on your list? We’ve got links and ideas. is a one-stop wonder. Check out these hand-made wooden dishes. Or the Bean-To’s blend of organic Hammer Down coffee (endorsed by Billy Demong and a fundraiser for Dewey Mountain) makes an aromatic stocking stuffer.

Wilmington’s Meg Stone has added beautiful work to the Stony Creek notecard line (and gets credit for the fox print here).

Adirondack Life did a great job on these Verplanck Colvin reprints, especially “Crest of the Gothics.”

Cooks and locavores will appreciate the beautifully designed and kitchen-tested Northern Comfort: Fall and Winter Recipes from Adirondack Life

Traditional Arts of Upstate New York (TAUNY) also has a balsamy online store including the CD Funny Men of the Adirondacks.

Photographer Mark Kurtz is offering a new winter portfolio of five small Adirondack prints.

The work of several artisans and artists who live and work in Chestertown, Minerva, Newcomb, North Creek, Olmstedville, Pottersville, Schroon Lake and Warrensburg can be found at Betty’s Funny Farm. Check out the cute knitted Mary Janes for baby.

When it comes to notecards we also like Mary Ballou Designs and biathlete Haley Johnson’s designs, but you have to go to Bookstore Plus in Lake Placid to get Haley’s.

And the Adirondack Museum store has great holiday cards, if you are really behind schedule.
