Winter Favorite Things – The Bear Necessities

The Bear Necessities is a curated monthly list of a few of our favorite things that encourage to spend time outdoors.

This month, warmth and light draw us outdoors to celebrate with friends and seek out winter adventures.

Our crews love them and anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors in the colder months will love the Carhartt Knit Cuffed Beanie. Available in 21 different colors to fit any style

The Brümate Hopsulator TriO is the trifecta of amazing. It fits 12oz or 16oz bottles or cans and can also be used as a tumbler. Available in lots of colors and styles.

The Leuchtturm1917 Outlines Journal will hold up under any weather or just join you as you kayak, fish or relax at the beach without worry of losing what you’ve written down. We believe in the power of soul renewal outdoors and with reflecting and journaling.

While being outside means leaving the comforts of climate control, there is a little warmth you can bring with you in the Ororo Classic Heated Vest. The upper body and collar heating keeps you warm for all your outdoor winter activities. Machine washable and holds a charge for up to 3-10hours depending on your heat setting. Available in Mens and Womens sizes and styles.

We truly believe that fire pits are an all-season backyard accessory. Cozying up to a fire in the chill of winter, or dare we wish for snow covered ground, sounds like a dreamy outdoor time. We love Burly Fire Pits for their ruggedness and sleek design.

There are few things that are more classic winter than L.L. Bean Boots. They are tried and true. We love that they are crafted in Maine by skilled craftspeople and have been keeping feet warm and dry since 1912. The high quality design means that you’ll likely only ever need to own one pair.

We can’t resist a challenge and love anything that will encourage us to get outside more. While you don’t have to actually track your time outside, we think these trackers from 1000 Hours Outdoors are so beautiful and fun. Free download

Everyone needs a good pair of wool socks in the wintertime. Smartwool Hike Classic Edition Full Cushion Crew socks are made from responsibly sourced Merino wool and built to be comfortable and durable. They are great for walking around the house on chilly winter mornings or they slip comfortably into a hiking or snow boot. Available in mens and womens styles.

Weighted blankets are known for reducing stress and anxiety, and we love these chunky knit styles! Oversized yarn makes for a great weight and fun look for any space. They are functional to wrap up with and look great as an accent in your space. Check out these blankets from Cozy Tyme through Wayfair.

With the short winter days, we love the elegant and cozy look that string lights bring to any outdoor space. Arlmont & Co though Wayfair have a great selection of string lights and light poles, if needed.
