Warmth two ways

Rhinebeck's Paper Trail has endless options for holiday gifting, including fragrant Scandinavisk candles from Denmark.

Bags and earbuds

The Golden Notebook in Woodstock has gorgeous and roomy printed book cover tote bags by Out of Print in timeless favorites, such as Goodnight Moon, Alice in Wonderland, and Where the Wild Things Are ($18). And here's a shop favorite for gear-lovers: the Woodstock logo high performance earbuds by ever-inventive Hal Leonard Corporation ($19.95). Goldennotebook.com

Soothing salve

Hudson Valley winters call for salves that really soothe. SallyeAnder in Beacon makes Rescue Me Balm, an intensive-care formula concocted out of more than 21 essential oils and herbs. It's antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory, but very pro-skin. Good for everything from dryness to stretchmarks to arthritis to scars and psoriasis, it's a big wonder in a festive little package. And it's glycerin free. 1.75 ounce tin ($18.71). Sallyeander.com

Stone and linen

Hudson Home on Warren Street has gifts curated with an impeccable eye: exquisite stone keepsake boxes come in striking black zebra marble, green striated onyx, and more: 4" box ($38); 5" box ($85). Adornments include urbanely floaty, luxurious scarves in muted, 100 percent linen by Libeco ($102). Hudson-home.com

Beaded, brocaded

Recently opened, Argentum Home in Saugerties offers gorgeous goods sourced from all over the world: Its buyers travel far and wide for these boho treasures. Handmade beaded zipper clutches work for everything from jump drives to jewelry, cosmetics to writing implements, in a range of sizes and gorgeous colors and patterns. Made in Indonesia. Small ($18); large or with a shoulder strap ($22). There are delightful little silk brocade lipstick cases ($3 each). Argentumhome.com

Haute handy

Rural Residence in Hudson has top-shelf renditions of the basics gone luxe: A handmade wool felt and leather pouch stores power cords neatly and is perfect for traveling, in shades like sand, charcoal, and midnight ($48). And a rosewood and ebony tape measure makes marking feet and inches (and centimeters) downright highbrow, beautifully fashioned to fit in your hand, 78 inches ($18). Ruralresidence.comHoliday Spirits: Drink and Be Merry

While the bottles may not exactly fit into a stocking, you can say it's the thought that counts: Warwick's Black Dirt Distillery (affiliated with the Warwick Valley Winery) has handsomely packaged, fine batches of stellar bourbon and applejack for keeping toasty and happy all winter long. Bourbon or Applejack, 750ml ($45); Single Barrel, 375 ml ($30). Blackdirtdistillery.com

DIG in Saugerties can help keep the festive in anyone's festivities with these tongue-in-cheek accessories. Give a flexible chopping board with a message you can really get behind, the wine-colored Keep Calm and Drink Wine. Comes in two sizes: 7 ½" x 11" ($12.95) and 12" x 15" ($15). For that teetotalling chef there's also a Keep Calm and Chop On, in veggie green. There are also cast-metal eyeglass bottle toppers ($10) or cast-metal bird toppers ($12). Make them laugh with the Buddy Bottle Opener, a hapless little figure who opens bottles with his mouth ($12). Another shop favorite: Ours and Mine wine charms and topper set ($15). Digtheshop.com
