Know anyone who’s a fan of Alaska? Or travels to Alaska often? Or have you traveled to Alaska and wanted to gift a memory of this beautiful place to your loved ones? We have compiled a list of some of the best gift items you can order from Alaska this holiday season. From a rare, fossilized woolly mammoth ivory article to handmade whale tails, we have covered all. Check this list to order Alaska-themed Christmas gifts for your friends and family.


Star of Alaska Covellite Bracelet

 

This exclusive covellite bracelet with veins of gold pyrite is made from the highest grade covellite found in the world. This unique mineral comes from the Kennicott Mines in the Wrangell-St. Elias Mountain Range, now a National Park & Preserve. No two are the same, and it includes a certificate of authenticity.

 

Ivory Jacks Fossilized Woolly Mammoth Ivory Marquise Spike Earrings

 

Think about this; these earrings are made from genuine prehistoric woolly mammoth tusks. These majestic animals roamed Alaska until the last ice age, becoming extinct about 10,000 years ago. Often, gold miners find mammoth tusks during their placer mining activities or during the spring floods that wash tusks from frozen riverbanks. Talk about having a piece of history!

 

Aurora Borealis Glass Christmas Ornament

 

 

This aurora borealis handmade glass ornament is a one-of-a-kind work of art, making it a perfect item to enhance your friends' or family's Christmas decoration. Want to have a unique Christmas tree? This is the perfect ornament for that. 

 

Multicolored Dymondwood Ulu

 

 

Any list of gift items related to Alaska cannot be complete without including a legendary Ulu knife. Handmade by Christopher Dingle in the Pacific Northwest, each of these Dymondwood ulu kitchen knives is made using 21 layers of colorized and high-pressure pressed birchwood. Includes matching color base. Available in 11 different colors.

 

Baleen Basket With Polar Bear Finial

 

 

Speaking of unique Alaskan crafts, we can't forget the Alaskan Baleen Basket. Traditionally, Inupiaq natives of the arctic region subsistence hunted the bowhead whale and used the baleen plates from harvested whales as tools, daily utensils, and even ornamental objects like baskets. This unique piece of art is a must for any Alaskan native art connoisseur.

 

Letter From Santa For Baby's And Kids

 

 

Promised your kids that Santa will write to them this Christmas? This charming package from Alaska includes a personalized letter from Santa tailored to babies, kids, teens, and even pets! The letter is printed on beautiful vintage stationery and enclosed in a custom North Pole envelope with a mini Northern Lights photo card. 

 

Russian Hand Carved Father Frost With Nativity On Front

 

What can be a better Christmas gift than a handmade, carefully crafted Wooden Russian Father Frost with Nativity On Front. Each one of these pieces of folk art is hand-carved and created by G.DeBrekht with the utmost attention to detail using century-old techniques.

Robert Miller, the owner of Sitka-based Sea Fur Sewing, makes fur hats, mitts, and other items that keep people warm and give them a part of Tlingit culture. Beginning with Iditarod champion Lance Mackey, he has earned the respect of Alaska's greatest dog mushers, who proudly wear his beautiful and functional furs. Robert also makes cardholders and men's wallets to gift to your loved ones this Christmas.

  

Sea Otter Fur Triple Wrap Infinity Scarf

 

 

This triple wrap sea otter fur infinity scarf is divine. The cascading layers bring warmth and richness to any outfit. This scarf is a premium Christmas gift that will make your loved ones feel not only warm but also unique during this Christmas. 

 

Handmade Forget-Me-Not Stained Glass Flower

Let this gift be a testament to your relationship and a symbol that they will always be in your thoughts. In addition, forget-me-nots are a symbol of fidelity and being truthful to someone you love. Whoever receives this gift should feel extremely lucky. 

 

Marvin Oliver Reaching For The Stars Serigraph

A limited-edition serigraph signed by him is an exceptional Alaskan Christmas gift!
