Western Rise Tomboy Popover Mother's Day Gift Guide


 From farmers' market to mountain summit and all around a weekend of camping with the little ones, our Tomboy Popover is the summer shirt she'll wear again and again. With a classic style, stretch linen look, UPF 30+ and breathable Nanotex hydrophobic and oleophobic technology, she'll stay protected from the elements and messy-kiddo fingers where you venture.


Western Rise Mother's Day Gift Guide  

Made for sportswomen (or sportsmen) to haul a weekend’s worth of gear, we're big fans of Whiskey Leatherworks' Field Tote Bag. Crafted with a 14.7 oz. waxed canvas upper and 6 oz. black Horween Latigo leather bottom and matching black leather straps, this bag will ensure many years of mountain country use.


Western Rise Mother's Day Gift Guide Opinel


 Known for its legendary folding knives, which have graced the pockets of the world's greatest artists, adventurers, navigators and mountaineers, Opinel knives have been produced in Savoie, in the heart of the French Alps, since 1890. Whether she's tying on a new fly, cutting some tape for sore blisters or fixing PB & Js for the trail, mom will love the look, size and versatility of this classic pocket knife. 


Western Rise Mother's Day Gift Guide Rumpl


The perfect extra insulation for inside the tent, in the truck bed or around the campfire, we love Rumpl's puffy throws and full-sized blankets, especially the "Iron" hue. Mom will love the too.


Western Rise RISE coffee 


Our new organic, ethically sourced, biodegradable pour-over coffee system is the pick-me-up Mom's been waiting for. So, take her camping this Mother's Day and make her a delicious dark roast in just minutes!

One of our go-to favorite summer hats is the Brixton Tiller Hat - a wide brim, round top, felt hat with a leather strap in some of our favorite natural tones - perfect for around town, music festivals, patio brews, day hikes and a weekend on the river!


Western Rise Mother's Day Gift Guide Fifty Fifty Candle


One of our favorite small businesses here in Telluride is the FiftyFifty Candle Co. Here, domestically grown and fabricated soy wax is blended with renewable coconut wax, precisely heated over open flame, blended with phthalate-free fine fragrance and essential oils and then slowly hand-poured into recycled glass containers or reusable mason jars to create the perfectly crafted artisan's candle. Our favorite scent? Fig & Fennel. One of our go-to gifts for friends and family!

Western Rise Mother's Day Gift Guide


A must-read for the mountain woman today, Harriet Backus writes about her life as an assayer's wife and true pioneer of the West with heart-felt emotion and vivid detail. Sharing her amusing and often challenging experiences as a new bride in the high San Juan Mountains where the Tomboy Mine operated above Telluride, Colorado  she paints a poignant picture of the people, and the life centered around silver mining where most of the book takes place. Currently in the Western Rise office and recommended by many San Juan locals!


Western Rise


Have a dog mom? Keep her assured her four-legged-friend is safe and secure on those camping trips with a carabiner light for the pup. We really like the red light, as it is a bit more dim and doesn't completely blind you when Skip comes running up to the campfire from behind the bushes.
