With the holidays just around the corner, we're thrilled to share with you our third holiday gift guide. We've featured our largest gathering of brands to date that all share in our mission to help their customers feel empowered, comfortable and confident. Many of them are woman-founded, some are from the Twin Cities (home of Abendroth Golf), and all will help you or yours be their best self in the new year. Catch up on the exciting brands that supported our gift guide this year!
With their recent soft launch into women's golf shoes, this was a "must try" on our list in 2022. Cole Haan is known in the shoe space for delivering one of the most comfortable pair of shoes, and now we can enjoy that same luxurious feeling of a feminine well made shoe for the game we love. On top of delivering premium products, their mission to inspire people to live purpose-filled lives ties nicely (pun intended) to the Abendroth thread of building a community around inclusion, confidence and empowerment.
Another new player in the game is a female-founded women's apparel brand, Renwick Golf. Launched by two sisters who saw a niche in the market place for a tasteful cotton polo, sisters, Pippa and Sarah, are focused on providing top quality apparel that makes women feel comfortable and beautiful. While their pieces are golf inspired, they are perfect for all women who want versatile, classic pieces that look great and feel comfortable.
Talk about the ultimate comfort after a long day on your feet. This clever sock brand is taking over the golf space and as a Teaching Professional, working mom, founder Emily Farrell values a good pair of socks. It's a bonus if they last and Feetures is so confident in their product that there is a lifetime guarantee.
Another home-run brand found in 2022: Hi Love Travel. These water-resistant, lightweight, everyday packs are now a staple throw-along for organization on the road. Founded by a female global and business entrepreneur, Melissa set out to offer a more functional, lightweight, fashionable bag that can be worn or used in all elements of weather. We also love that at the core of their brand, they want to share LOVE, offer a smile, kind word or thoughtful gift with a friend.
Any golfer knows, good skincare starts with suncare. SuperGoop is a top-of-the line sunscreen brand that focuses on doing things better; and that starts with using reef-free, cruelty-free, clean ingredients that don't "goop" up while you re-apply. They continue to choose "good" - whether it's working with schools nationally to offer suncare options to kids, shipping with recycled materials or keeping everyone in mind and offering 40+ different skin type options for their products. SuperGoop is founded by a female on a mission to do more and do better.
Delia Organics Skincare is all about plant based ingredients with an objective. With the right ingredients, handpicked by a female founder, this Canadian line is focused on giving your skin the “chefs kiss” in self-love and care. The clean ingredients leave your skin feeling refreshed, luxurious and as smooth as silk. Our favorite items are included in the giveaway and we can’t wait to share them with you!
The Minne Design Co is a woman-founded, woman-made jewelry line hailing from the Twin Cities (also the HQ for Abendroth Golf). Not only do we love the Minne Design Co. for being another woman-owned business in our backyard, their ethically made jewelry tells a unique story with each design. What started as a passion project while Minne Design’s founder, Anndee, was working towards her PhD, turned into a creative business with sustainability at its forefront. In addition to donating 10% of sales to various environmental non-profit groups, they use paper-based products for all packaging and shipping, and minimize the amount of plastic and waste as much as possible at every step along the way. Plus, their minimalist designs are perfect to give you a little bit of flair on the back nine and after.
We love a good lipstick here at Abendroth! It’s the perfect golf bag essential to boost your mood and confidence. Based in Minneapolis, the Elixery is a cosmetics brand that develops their products in-house from ethical, vegan materials that are never tested on animals. We love the color Bittersweet for everyday or Swoon for a little bit of holiday sparkle!
One of the classic, iconic brands hailing from St. Paul, J.W. Hulme has been in the business of making premium, American-made leather goods for over 100 years. And just like your favorite glove, their leather goods only improve with age and begin to tell a story as they embrace a well-lived life. This holiday season, the team at Abendroth is eying their minimalistic fine leather business card holders, which our very own Founder & CEO keeps in the pocket of her Peggy Pant, just in case she makes a new connection while she’s out on the course.
Abdenroth Golf was founded by a PGA Professional, Emily Farrell, who wanted to solve for the void in women’s golf apparel for pieces that were both functional and something that felt feminine and empowering to wear. The story behind LIE + LOFT, a creative golf brand focused on connecting golf and the feeling of home, has a similar journey. After working as a Golf Professional, PGA Member Luke Davis felt that design, inclusion and sustainability were well behind the times in golf, and decided to change that back in 2015. Today, L+L remains true to their first product forging golf + home, course map prints, while actively creating other unique goods, throwing one of a kind golf experiences, and promoting welcoming vibes for all through original content + adventures. We love that their goods transport you to the course from the comfort of your home. Enjoy three of our favorite prints to give you golf course dreams from your office!
