Gifts that show off WV pride


If you’re shopping for someone who holds West Virginia near and dear to their heart, look no further.

From Appalachian artists to products that represent the Mountain State, here’s your ultimate holiday shopping list:

1. Kin Ship Goods Sweatshirts

Take Kin Ship Goods’ message to heart and “stay cozy” this winter in one of their West Virginia sweatshirts. Choose from a “304” or mountain-themed sweatshirt to stay warm all winter while representing the Mountain State.

2. Loving WV Stemless Wine Glasses

No West Virginia wine is complete without the perfectly paired stemless wine glass. What could be better than adding an etched state outline on the side? Support West Virginia wineries— and West Virginia small businesses— with this tasteful wine glass. Or sip from their mugs, mason jars and other drinkware.

3. Wild and Wonderful Box

Is your favorite West Virginian on an adventure outside of the state’s borders? The Wild and Wonderful Box can give them a little taste of home. Select 7 items, from wooden coasters and keychains to pepperoni rolls and local honey, to help that special someone feel like they’re right back in the Mountain State.

4. Wild & Wonderful Lifestyle Co. Decals

Do you take a little piece of West Virginia with you wherever you go? Show it off with a decal from Wild & Wonderful Lifestyle Co. There are a number to choose from: adventure, camping, and just loving good ol’ West Virginia.

5. Home Brewed + Co. Mug

This hand-lettered modern calligraphy shop features everything from shirts and ornaments to koozies and wooden signs. But our favorite may be the heavy-duty ceramic mug that pays homage the West Virginia while holding our favorite hot cocoa.

6. Mountain Stage Tickets

Sometimes, an experience means more than merchandise. For those folks in your life who’d rather do than have, share tickets to a Mountain Stage concert. Mountain Stage is a 2-hour live performance program that features up-and-coming artists and seasoned legends, produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting. Then, it’s broadcast on more than 150 stations across America— so, there’s a good chance you can hear your clapping on radio. Your giftees can pick out their own wild, wonderful memento at the merch table.

7. alterdesigns West Virginia necklace

What is a better way to show off your state pride than wearing it right around your neck? This gold or silver necklace comes with or without the state name on a tiny state outline. These delicate charms keep West Virginia close to your heart— and never out of mind.
