Hudson Valley gift ideas that create the spirit of the house
All proceeds from the sale of the Handmade Hudson River Lighthouse Covers ($ 75) support the preservation of Saugerties Lighthouse, where adventure-seeking visitors can also stay overnight.
Saugerties Lighthouse Conservatory
Handcrafted cover of Hudson River lighthouses ($ 75)
Eight lighthouses (including the Statue of Liberty) are all that are left as beacons for the Hudson River, and this cover represents each. If that wasn’t hyperlocal and educational enough, the blanket motif was designed by Anna Landewe, one of the resident lighthouse keepers at Saugerties Lighthouse, the only one of the other eight still inhabited, and all the profits go to its continued preservation. If you want to give this gift a little extra, include a reservation to stay at the lighthouse, which also serves as a beautiful and historic bed and breakfast.
Hudson Valley Hand Embroidered Pillow ($ 225)
A few years ago I received catstudio glasses from the state I grew up in and still cherish them today. The geography-inspired illustrations are beautiful in themselves, but are particularly meaningful to someone in the area. The Hudson Valley Pillow is hand embroidered and signed by the artisan who made it, and can take a week to complete, making it a thoughtful and treasured gift for someone who loves the Hudson Valley as much as you do. Currently, the pillows are sold online on the catstudio site, but the Rhinebeck Workers and Dreamers store has the pillow ($ 225), as well as the sweet regional tea towels from catstudio ($ 23).
