This favorite Hampden haunt is infamous for its quirky selection of gifts, collectibles and accessories for both body and home.

Best For: The Eco-Minded

It’s no surprise that the many crunchy granola-eaters of Hampden share their neighborhood with a fair-trade store full of sustainable, do-gooder goodies. If you want to make sure no snowflakes were injured during the creation of your mittens, or want to support a Nepalese village to keep your tootsies warm, then this is the place for you. Full of body and heart-warming treats, our favorite is the bathtub tea: just toss the bag in your hot bath and enjoy a cozy soak to melt  away blizzardy blues.

If you want funky fresh hoodies, Squidfire has them inked out for you. Perfect for those chilly November days or layering under more clothes when it gets a bit more frigid. Boasting an array of oddly illustrated emblems, you can take your pick of what you want emblazoned on your zip-up. Giant Squid? Pelican? Perhaps a snowman to suit the season? Wiggle into Squidfire and embrace your inner child with one of these super fun sweatshirts.

Best For: Real Winter Gear

We thought we should include one solid spot to get good parkas, boots, ski pants and whatever else you need to actually spend some time outside in the snowier weather. Princeton Sports has two locations in Baltimore and Columbia, and has one of the largest selections of ski and snowboard gear in the area. If you’re planning on hitting the slopes, shoveling snow or just need a heavier coat for when the temperature drops into the teens, head to Princeton Sports and grab some stuff to bundle up.
