Holiday Gift Picks: Portland Edition

Words by Erik Prowell, Bridge & Burn Founder

For obvious reasons I give a lot of Bridge & Burn gear to my friends and family over the holidays, but I like to add in some really well crafted pieces from my friends that own Portland-based brands, like The James Brand, Field Notes, and Tanner Goods.

Curated picks by Erik Prowell, Bridge & Burn Founder


  1. Bridge & Burn Dreamers & Schemers Tee 

I’d give this tee to any of my entrepreneurial friends who are doing their own thing and making things happen for themselves. 


  1. Bridge & Burn Enid Cardigan

The merino wool we used to make this cardigan is extremely soft and comfortable. This is just an easy layering piece.


  1. Bridge & Burn Amos Chore Coat

The Amos is one of my favorite styles this season. The indigo fabric is unique and eye-catching.


  1. Bridge & Burn Pacificist Cap

West coast is the best coast.


  1. Pendleton’s Yakima Throw Lake Grey

Pendleton blankets are an easy gift for literally anyone on your list. You can use it at home or keep it in your car for any camping trips or outdoor stops. 


  1. Field Notes Pitch Black- Ruled 3 pack Memo Book

I carry one of these Field Notes notebooks with me wherever I go to keep track of my to-do list and random thoughts. A good gift for someone wanting to get their life organized. 


  1. The James Brand Elko in Bone/Black

Another Portland-based company run by a great group of guys. This is an easy everyday carry item.  


  1. Tanner Goods Journeyman Wallet

Tanner Goods is all about quality and everything they make gets better with age. I still wear a Tanner belt that’s over 10 years old. This wallet is perfect for the minimalist in your life.
