When I have the opportunity to travel, especially some place unique and special, I make sure to find something meaningful that will help me to remember the moments and memories created and shared. A keepsake, whatever the size or type, can be cherished for years and also can help us to tell our stories. Here are just a few items out there to consider, but we know you’ll find what’s just right for you!

That Classic Fernie Sticker
For your SUV, your gear, your re-usable mug… this is a classic way to show your love and continue to remember your time spent here. The Fernie Visitor Centre has a great collection, as well as various businesses in town including the Ski Base, Ghostrider Trading Post, and Coal Town Goods. Fan of Fernie Alpine Resort, Island Lake Lodge or Fernie Wilderness Adventure? Their stickers are also great options!

Speaking of mugs, are you keen to think of Fernie every time you take a sip of your morning coffee or your après drink of choice? You have options! Fernie Brewing has attractive Mir coffee mugs as well as beer koozies, and branded glassware. Sports Alpine Boutique also has Fernie Alpine Resort branded vessels, and be sure to hit up No3, Ghostrider Trading Post, IGS and Interior Envy for their Fernie-ware.

Comfort Wear
It’s winter and it’s important to be warm and cozy. A comfy sweater is just what you need! Coal Town has popular branded sweaters, as do Fernie Brewing Co., Fernie Distillers, Straightline and Gear Hub. Ski Base is carrying branded and Fernie Griz hoodies, too. Also, keep your feet warm with some Fernie socks - Fernie Distillers, Fernie Brewing and Straightline have popular and stylish options.

There is nothing like making a cup of coffee or fresh espresso in your home, and it bringing you right back to an amazing experience you had on vacation! Rooftop Roasters and Beanpod sell their coffee in house, while Fernie Roasting you can purchase online or at The Local Store downtown.

Fernie is home to some talented brewers and distillers, selling their products both inhouse and in stores. FBC products can be found across Canada, but seasonals and special editions may be harder to find! Check out their brewery and see what’s available during your stay.

Another amazing option is Fernie Alpine Springs. They brew a variety of amazing fresh kombucha, and it’s tough to make a decision. We recommend visiting their tasting room before choosing a case to bring home. And of course, don’t miss Fernie Distillers. Stop by, have a tasting and perhaps a cocktail while you choose what to take home.
