Winter Gifts for Cottage Country Addicts

If you are stuck for what to buy friends and family this year, get them something that will remind them of their cottage country vacation and perhaps have them yearning to go back.

1. Traction for running/hiking

2. Hut Booties

These hut booties are perfect for pulling on for taking the dog out the last thing at night, or for the trip to the hot tub at the cottage.
