The Pendleton Collection

Yikes, Christmas and Hanukkah are only seven weeks away! I don't know about you, but I'd rather get one quality gift, than lots of lesser or impractical ones. So in the coming weeks, I'll try to feature a few retailers to consider.

Pendleton, the celebrated Oregon weaver of fine wool blankets and classic American clothing, is offering some lovely gifts for him, her and the entire family. Operating since 1863, the textile manufacturer is known for its stellar craftsmanship and attention to details -- finishing "every blanket by hand, cutting them to size, sewing edges and carefully inspecting each one," says the website.
The apparel and home collection are not cheap, but affordable. The polar opposite of trendy, they are investment pieces. Whether a Beaumont shirt, signature coat, or eco-wise wool blanket, the goods will hold up to last a lifetime.
The selection of possible holiday gifts is immense -- everything from Pueblo Crossroads jewelry, brass-studded-wingtip-boots and frontier shirts to a Chevron mirror, patterned-handcrafted-rugs and virgin-wool-sofas-with pewter-nailhead-trims-and hardwood-legs.
There are even blanket inspired coats to keep Fido warm and happy, either at home or while traveling.

Cute stuff! If you can't afford the full price of a wool blanket or parka, a $20, etc. gift certificate is very thoughtful. Gifts of merit for all your family, friends or pets.

  1. Love the Hudson Bay goodies Debra - must get some when we next go to America. Pendleton looks like a lovely brand for a cold climate!

    1. Tricia, I love finding retailers who have been in at their trades for several generations. They've had the time to get it right and are usually experts at what they do.
