Holiday Gift Guide: Wind & Weather Holiday Gifts {Collegiate Doormat Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway}

Wind & Weather logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Ann!}

When it comes to decorating around our house, we've had some ups and downs in terms of the decisions that we've made.

Bright green kitchen? In my defense, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

As my husband and I tend to have somewhat similar tastes and manage to agree on most of our selections (or else he just gives in because it doesn't really matter to him), I wasn't surprised when he pointed out recently what a dismal first impression our doormat was making when guests arrived at our house.

Strange thing to be pointing out? You didn't see our previous doormat.

Instead, you can now see the stylish, high quality, unique and fun way that we welcome visitors to our home with a Collegiate Doormat from Wind & Weather.

Collegiate DoormatFor all of the weather instruments, gear and gadgets and yard and garden objects and decor you could ask for, Wind & Weather has a large collection of items for the home that would make wonderful gifts this holiday season. Their passion for the outdoors combined with their line of distinctive art pieces and great customer service makes them perfect for finding just the right item for you or the lucky people on your shopping list.

As for us, this University of Wisconsin Collegiate Doormat couldn't have been a better combination of the best features that we wanted in something eye-catching and fun at our door. The 24"H x 39"W generous size is just right (not too big but definitely not too small) and the durable, high quality of both the top and bottom is evident just from a glance.

The sturdy coir fiber top is thick and strong and is ready to take foot wiping after foot wiping, while the skid-resistant, pressed-rubber base stays firmly in place no matter how much traffic this gets.

I really like the depth and dimension around the W and the way that the fibers are cleanly cut so that the letter as well as the swirled edge designs don't start to look smeared after a while. We've had this outside from the day it arrived and it still looks great!

Retailing for $69.95, there are 30 different colleges and universities available in Collegiate Doormat form from Wind & Weather. Although this might not be the typical holiday gift, we're thrilled with it and know that other fans of their Alma mater or local school would be just as excited to have a way to show that off. This isn't going to be an item that will get used up or discarded, this is one gift that would continue to bring a smile for years to come!

With such a wide variety of gift options available from Wind & Weather, you're sure to find some to satisfy multiple names on your shopping list this year. Plus, if you need a little help with selecting the perfect one, their Gift Guide is conveniently broken down by interest, price, recipient, and more to make it easy to find just what will work best.

Whether you're looking for an item for indoors or out, decorative or functional, Wind & Weather has the selection that you and your recipient are sure to appreciate this holiday season.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to select a stylish, high quality gift for themselves or someone on their list as well, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift certificate to Wind & Weather!
