Walking (or hiking, skiing or snowshoeing) in a winter ‘wanderland’

DesignTara R. Hunt, Gap Inc. bloggerComment

We all have those special women on our gifting list — the ones who can't stop, won't stop moving, demanding clothes that keep up with that active lifestyle.

That lifestyle may take her on her daily winter Ironman training sessions, to the fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate or to the yoga studio — or maybe a little bit of each. Whatever her style, Athleta has a selection of gifts made just for her. Explore these gift ideas for the most adventurous woman on your list and make her spirits bright.

The Mountain Explorer

The Primaloft ParkaRemarkawool cowl topHigh Rise Gleam Tight and Blanket Scarf by FRAAS will make sure all the skiers, snowshoers and lodge-lovers in your life will stay warm and look great from that first tumble in the snow to the last run of the day. You can't go wrong with a great plaid for winter, after all.

Learn the story behind Remarkawool and why (hint: next-level versatility) that gift will stand the test of time.

The Adventurer

Getting on a train, a plane or an automobile can feed her fashionista as much as her wanderlust. For all the sightseers, globetrotters and jet-setters, the Lumberjill ShirtMetro legging and Nylon Mesh Bag will look great at the museum, with coffee in the park and in the post-vacation photos.

The Studio Lover

For the girl who loves to stretch her limits, the High Rise Chaturanga Tight Spacedye and Optimism Tank Alpine will perform and look great at Vinyasa flow. A stainless-steel 25 oz. Water Bottle by S'well, double-walled and vacuum-sealed, won't spill a drop of that all-important hydration.

The Chill Chaser

A little chill in the air doesn't stop the most avid runner, especially if her next big run is just around the corner post-holiday. For runners who thrive in the cold, the Sonar tight — the super-sleek, wicking tight with compression fabric for flattering fit — Plush Tech Half-Zip 3.0and Plush Tech Beanie will take her from training session to race day.

To warm up after that post-run temperature drop, she'll want to have the Downalicious Deluxe Vest on hand.

The Cozy Lounger

Some of the best holiday moments are the relaxing ones. As lifestyle blog Gal Meets Glam can attest, a great day spent relaxing with friends and family — bonus for idyllic mountain settings — can provide a much-needed recharge before the hustle-bustle.

The supremely soft Coaster 2.0 pants, the Cypress Sweater — made with temperature-regulation in mind — and the Soft Crossdye Blanket Wrap (a Gal Meets Glam favorite) will make this R&R seeker's season.

The Power Player

For ladies who lunge, lift and sweat it out, the aptly named Crunch and Punch Tank is a great option. Designed for the gym, it easily crosses over to other activities with built-in support up top and lightweight, breezy fabric. Make it an outfit with the Relay Striped Tight and Strength Hoodie 2 — a mid-weight hoodie with winter-ready plush interior.
