Ten Unique Ways to Remember Your Season of Travel and Adventure
The final weeks of autumn bring shorter days, longer nights, cooler temperatures, and a somber silence that blankets the world as nature quietly prepares for winter. This is when most folks put their hiking, camping, backpacking, and road-tripping gear away for the season and shift to indoor hobbies.
Many feel this season has a bittersweet tinge, sometimes downright morose. To offset the malaise, ADG compiled a list of ten National Park, travel, adventure-themed, and art-inspired products to bring a little joy into the home this winter season.
Wall Art for the Living Room
The living room should be the most visible room in the home, perfect for entertaining and a gathering place for residents, family members, friends, and guests. When spending time indoors this winter, why not consider new wall art for the living room?
ADG’s 25 collections of poster art include over 3,000 original posters, many of which are fashioned after vintage poster art of the 20th Century and many of which feature travel, national parks, road trips, camping, outdoor adventures, international adventures, and iconic landmarks.
National Park Beanie Hats and Socks
From National Park beanie hats to National Park socks and hiking caps, the ADG apparel section keeps the love for National Parks alive throughout the off-season.
The super comfy, high-quality, 100% acrylic hiking beanies are adorned with a gorgeous woven patch design by Anderson Design Group. The easy-breathing, sun-shading, trail-trucker cap is made from high-quality 100% cotton twill with airflow-allowing polyester mesh.
Last but not least, Anderson Design Group & Nashville’s own Swiftwick teamed up to create beautiful socks that pay homage to the majestic National Parks so many love to explore.
National Park Stickers
For those short on wall space but still wanting to decorate this winter, ADG’s National Park stickers are a great choice! ADG’s indoor/outdoor National Park sticker sets include 63 full-color stickers—one of each National Park.
The high-quality vinyl stickers are perfect for car or camper bumpers, coolers, guitar & gear cases, lockers, notebooks, luggage, and more!
National Park Blankets
ADG’s new, beautiful, cozy, tapestry-weave blankets are soft and stylish, featuring original illustrations and vintage-styled designs of America’s National Parks and natural wonders, making them the best National Park blankets on the market.

National Park Puzzles
A great gift for a National Park and American travel enthusiast and an excellent way to pass the time on inclement weather days, ADG’s deluxe jigsaw puzzles each feature a different iconic destination and National Park.
