It’s that time of year! The days are getting shorter, the wind is getting colder, and homes will soon begin twinkling with Christmas lights. To kick off the holiday season, I’ve put together a Favorite Things Gift Guide: Erie and Anchor edition. In this gift guide you will find seven of my favorite Erie and Anchor items. There is something for the entire family in this gift guide, which makes for easy shopping! Now more than ever we need to support small businesses and I’m always happy to support Erie and Anchor. This family owned business not only provides products for a coastal lifestyle, but they also give back. Erie and Anchor makes sure that 5% of each purchase is donated to help preserve and clean up Lake Erie. My family loves this small but mighty Great Lake and I’m proud to support a company that feels the same.
So without further ado, here is my Favorite Things Gift Guide, Erie and Anchor Edition.
Classic Crosswinds Crewneck
The classic Crosswinds Crewneck is probably my most worn E&A sweatshirt. I love all my E&A sweatshirts, but this one is the comfiest sweatshirt I have ever owned. It’s incredibly soft and cozy and it’s the sweatshirt I reach for time and again. It’s perfect for layering (I like to wear mine with a navy blue gingham button up underneath and my navy blue puffer vest on top). People talk about comfort food often, but in all seriousness this is my comfort piece of clothing. If I’m needing an extra dose of comfort, this is the sweatshirt I want.
Gift For: EVERYONE
Sizing: Unisex (Rob and I both have this sweatshirt and are often found twinning in it)
Colors: Kelly Green (although mine is an older version that is gray with navy blue details)
Quilted Sailboat Pullover
Of all my Erie and Anchor pieces, the navy blue quilted pullover is the one I receive the most compliments on. People always comment on how cute the style is – especially the white sailboat detail. Like all my E&A pieces, this pullover is warm and so comfortable. If you own a boat or live a coastal life, this pullover is going to be your go-to for cooler evenings on the lake or beach days in the fall. It’s the perfect transition piece. (Note: The bottom band does fit snug, so I recommend sizing up).
Gift For: Mom, sister, aunt
Colors: Navy Blue
North Coast Kickback Silver Long Sleeve
First of all, I love the simple “North Coast” design on many of the E&A shirts and I proudly wear two sweatshirts with these words written across the front. The North Coast Kickback Silver long sleeve though is the perfect pullover. The weight of this long sleeve is in between a sweatshirt and a t-shirt, so it makes for an amazing piece when the weather is transitioning (this is the piece I always grab on summer evenings). I also love the hem of this long sleeve – it’s a little bit longer so I love to do a front tuck in my jeans for a different look. It’s truly a must have piece for your cozy collection.
Gift For: EVERYONE
Colors: Silver and Navy
New England Striped Rain Jacket
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen the New England Striped Rain Jacket make MANY appearances. I love this jacket. Not only for the classic navy and white stripes, but also for the fit and quality of this rain coat. I actually look forward to rainy days so that I can wear this jacket. And it’s actually a perfect jacket for the cooler temperatures of spring and fall so I often wear it even when it’s not raining. Definitely worth it if you live in a climate with lots of rain! Plus it has the cutest light blue E&A anchor detail on the front. Oh and zip pockets. And a hood. Need I say more!?
Gift For: Mom, Sister, Aunt, Friend, Yourself!
Colors: Blue and White Stripe
Signature Anchor Baseball Hat
The Signature Anchor Baseball Hat is an everyday staple in the Solt house. I have this hat in white with a navy anchor and Rob has it in navy with a white anchor. We both wear it ALL the time (Lilly tries to steal both of ours). This is the perfect classic accessory for boating on the lake, taking a walk down by the river, or just hiding that hair you haven’t washed in a week! It also has an adjustable brass buckle so it’s one size fits all.
Gift For: Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Cousin, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, EVERYONE
Colors: White or Navy
Youth Anchor Hoodie
Lilly has the Youth Anchor Hoodie in gray and it’s the CUTEST. I love how soft it is and I love that the hood doesn’t have any strings. I have always loved the signature anchor design of E&A so I love that it’s extra bold on this sweatshirt. I actually have the adult version of this sweatshirt in navy, so you can often find Lilly and me twinning in our hoodies.
Gift For: Kiddos, nieces, nephews, baby sibling
Colors: Gray or Kelly Green
Anchor Coffee Tumbler
This is the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life! The new Anchor Coffee Tumbler has the signature E&A anchor and you can choose from navy or white. I have one of the E&A tumblers in the crosswinds design and it’s my favorite tumbler! I’ve gone through many a tumbler in my life and these ones are the best quality (in my opinion). They keep beverages cold for hours (I wake up in the morning and I still have ice in mine!) and vice versa they keep coffee or tea hot for hours, which is perfect if it takes you three hours to drink your coffee like me.
Gift For: EVERYONE
Size: One size
Colors: Navy or White
And there you have it. There are many more products from Erie and Anchor that I love, but these are my tried and true favorites. Extremely high quality and stylish, you seriously cannot go wrong buying a gift for someone from Erie and Anchor. And the best part? By shopping Erie and Anchor you are supporting a small, family owned business and helping to save Lake Erie for generations to come.
