We have just returned from a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation at Vail filled with lots of fresh snow. We had the BEST family vacation. For the holidays I am thinking of buying a souvenir to remind us of what a special time we had together. I love jigsaw puzzles, so the Vail village puzzle is an item that would be a perfect holiday activity.
Hi I am so happy to hear that you had a wonderful vacation while in Vail, and yes all the big fresh snow was fantastic!. The Vail puzzle is a great idea as the whole family could work on putting the puzzle together over the Christmas school break, always nice to have an activity ready when school is out. Have fun!
These are perfect gift ideas. My mother-in-law and her husband own a beautiful second home in Beaver Creek. They are always visiting and hosting really fun holiday family get-togethers at their home. I have been searching for the perfect gif for her and I think I found it with the Vail Tote Bag and the Long Distance Love Mug. She is always carrying generic tote bags around for groceries and such so I think she would find this super useful. Her and her family's home is in Texas but her second home is Beaver Creek so I love the idea of the mug with both Texas and Colorado showing her two favorite places and where her family gathers around her. Thanks so much for these great ideas!
That is wonderful to hear I am so happy that you could find the perfect gifts! I LOVE the Vail Tote bag it is so stylish and cool and holds a lot, I think she will love it! The Love Mug is so cute too, I am thinking of sending it to my mother-in-law as well. Have a wonderful holiday and I hope she enjoys them.
My daughter is moving to Colorado and the mug with states and quotes on it is a perfect gift. Spent a lot of time looking, found this, it’s perfect!
Hi Jane, I am so happy you found this article about the best Vail holiday gifts helpful. Yes the coffee mug with the two states (that can be customized) is so adorable and a great way to stay on your daughter's mind every morning! I think she will love the mug and it will be especially appealing on those cold, snowy Colorado mornings when she can just sit back and enjoy a steaming mug of delicious comfort.
