Five Presents to Remind You of Bridge Day

Now that black Friday has come and gone, many of us need to get down to business on our holiday shopping. You can purchase Bridge Day souvenirs online including t-shirts and more for stocking stuffers. Here are some other gift-giving ideas that may make you think of Bridge Day. Santa on Bridge Day

1) Gauley River Pottery John and Mary discovered the true beauty of almost heaven on the banks of the New River and Gauley River. Living and working in the whitewater industry opened their eyes wide to the fluid works of nature. It seems only logical that they made the transition from whitewater to pottery. And now their Gauley inspired creations are available online!

2) Wonderful WV or Goldenseal Magazines If you can’t be here this winter, why not start dreaming of your next trip on the pages of the state’s longest running magazines.

3) West Virginia Books Some would say reading about the Mountain State is the next best thing to being there. Check out the WVU Press collection of works including those on coal history, fiction, Appalachian history to scholarly journals. 4) A Family Portrait It wouldn’t the holidays if we didn’t receive one of those Christmas cards with the family beach portrait. No offense to Myrtle or Miami, but West Virginia has some stunning views that offer all-natural, and often snow-filled backdrop. Some phenomenal portrait artists abound in southern WV, many who specialize in outdoor shots.

5) A Trip to a State Park Have a friend with a new RV? Know someone who comes to Pipestem or Hawk’s Nest every year? Why not surprise them with a West Virginia State Parks gift certificate. Good thing is, they can use them anywhere if they want to try a new park on for size.

The countdown is on.
