Top 10 Favorite Holiday Gifts by the Coolibar Team

The Holiday season is here, and you know what that means… trying to find the perfect gift. To get inspired for what you may want to get your loved ones, we caught up with some of the Team on what THEIR favorite products are here at Coolibar!

Anne – Chief Brand Officer

Favorite Activities: Weekend mornings sitting on the deck reading, Hiking, Nordic Skiing

Top Product Choice: Wyatt Bucket Hat

My go-to gift is hats because everyone needs a good one for sun protection and, in my opinion, you can never have too many! I like to gift bucket hats because they are easy to wear with anything and flatter most face shapes. Hats are generally easy to guess the right size too. My current favorite is the Wyatt bucket hat. It’s stylish without being trendy, packable and super lightweight. I personally have it in multiple prints. BTW, the Wyatt is technically a men’s hat, but there are quite a few of us women at Coolibar that don’t discriminate when it comes to hats. If the hat fits, we want it!

Kristen – Director of Brand

Favorite Activities: Traveling, Getting outside, enjoying the lakes and hanging with friends!

Top Product Choice: Maho Weekend Pants

I seriously live in these pants. They are an easy breezy throw on and I love the fit and, of course, the sun protection. They are perfect for chilling on the sofa or getting out for a walk. Having a dog that loves lake walks, it is great knowing that I am not only comfortable but protected by the sun, when I go out these. I know own several pairs and am gifting a pair to my sister for the holidays!

Monica – Ecommerce Manager

Favorite Activities: Gardening, Curating Cats, Extreme House-planting

Top Product Choice: Women’s Daybreak Swing Top

For me, the weekends are when I get stuff done. I don’t like to waste time thinking about what I am going to wear when I wake up in the morning – that’s what Monday through Friday is for. I have found that no matter what I end up doing, if I grab one of my Daybreak Swing Tops, I am set for the day. All I need to do is decide which color to wear (I have 5 … and 1 more pending.) I am on the taller side and like my tops more tunic-like. But the problem with some tunics is that they are boxy or shapeless and that does me no favors. This top being fitted at the chest makes me feel somewhat tailored (for a t-shirt) but it is forgiving in all the right places. It basically checks all my boxes and that is not easy to do.

Hayden – Social Media Manager

Favorite Activities: Golfing, Being on the lake with my friends, Traveling

Top Product Choice: Agility Performance Pullover

It seems like I constantly have plans 24/7 and honestly, sun protection sometimes becomes an afterthought. My solution? I legitimately own 4 of our Agility Performance Pullovers in different colors and will wear it for any and every occasion! From heading out to the course to meeting some friends at a brewery, you will find me with this top!

Leslie – Manager, Organizational Effectiveness

Favorite Activities: Fishing (lakes + deep sea), cycling, downhill skiing, and traveling.

Top Product Choice: Women’s Paros Sailing Tee + Men’s Andros Fishing Tee

My husband and I LOVE to fish in the MN summers and when winter comes along, we are off to somewhere warm to do some more fishing. We don’t leave the house without our Paros and Andros tee’s so we can enjoy the sun while on the boat for 8-12 hours at a time. These are our “go-to” shirts because the technical fabrics keep us cool and protect us from harmful UV rays, at the same time.

Mariah- Merchandising Specialist

Favorite Activities: Going to the lake, Exploring with my dogs, Anything outside

Top Product Choice: Tatum Convertible Explorer Hat

I LOVE being able to spend time outside, especially if my dogs are around! Which normally means I am going for long walks or spending hours by the lake watching them play! My Tatum Convertible Explorer Hat it is so easy to grab and go when running out of the house, plus it is convertible so I can adjust the amount of coverage I need throughout the day or depending on activity!

Denzell – Medical Professional Consultant

Favorite Activities: Running, building things, reading, working out and hanging with friends and family

Top Product: Erodym Long Sleeve Golf Polo

One of my favorite shirts in my closet is my Coolibar Erodym polo shirt. Whether I’m at work, headed to the course or hanging with friends, this is my go-to “no brainer” shirt. Because of its elegance and functionality, I don’t have to worry about fit, compromising comfort or performance, and I get to look good and feel protected.

Lacey – Lead, Merchant

Favorite Activities: Golfing, Traveling, Rock Climbing, Biking, Hiking

Top Product Choice: Motio Joggers

Sun protection is a big priority for me because of skin sensitives and genetic history. I find it difficult to remember sun protection for my legs though. So, my solution is an amazing sun protection bottom that you can live in! The Motio joggers are lightweight, stretchy, and have excellent moisture wicking properties. I use these pants outdoor running, long days hiking and climbing, biking around the city, running errands on the weekend, travelling, and just lounging around. I wear them everywhere!

Kat – Business Unit Lead (Hats, Ultimate Coverage)

Favorite Activities: Anything outdoors and adventurous!

Top Product Choice: Lenny Sport Cap

Living in the Midwest, it is very important to me to spend time outside when the weather is nice! The Lenny hat’s oversized brim protects my face if I am out on the lake, hiking, or watching my nieces and nephews’ games. It comes in multiple colorways so it always pairs well with any outfit and is adjustable for added comfort.

Kelsey – Social Media Specialist

Favorite Activities: Golfing, Kayaking, and Traveling

Top Product Choice: Devi Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Whenever the weather is nice, I always try to take advantage of it by being outside. I never have trouble remembering sun-protection but reapplying is where I struggle… Our Devi Long Sleeve T-shirt solves this problem of mine with its built-in sun protection that keeps me covered all day long. 10/10 recommend this to all my friends and family!
