the Special Editions

The Scout Guide is pleased to produce special edition guides that cater to our audience’s specific interests and affinities. Like our city guides, they are thoughtfully curated, beautifully designed, and produced annually.


The Scout Guide Equestrian was published in January 2016. A celebration of the artists, entrepreneurs, and enterprises that embody the beauty and spirit of the equestrian lifestyle, the guide features a curated collection of individuals and artisans whose work and wares are rooted in the equestrian tradition.

2015 Holiday Gift Guide

Here at TSG HQ, the debut of the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide marks the unofficial launch of the holiday season—and we couldn’t ask for a better kickoff. An opportunity to Scout items we’d love to give (or receive!) and speak to business owners about the unique and special products they carry, the gift guide combines the thrill of the hunt with the pleasure of making a personal connection, all wrapped up in a festive and inspiring package.

This year, the 2015 Holiday Gift Guide conveys a sense of adventure that seems very fitting given that it’s a product of 50+ cities’ worth of Scouting. Inside, you’ll find statement-making jewels, one-of-a-kind works of art, eye-catching accessories, gorgeous antiques, a beautiful bicycle ready for cruising, cool camping tools, handcrafted wares, toys that little ones will love, and so much more.

We hope you treat yourself to a few adventures of your own this holiday season. Explore the local businesses found in your town and engage with the people who run them. Visit a new shop (in addition to your old favorites!). Ask for recommendations. Create a new tradition. Gift adventurously!

2014 Holiday Gift Guide

It is the most wonderful time of the year here at TSG Headquarters. We’ve been celebrating the arrival of newly printed books every week, brainstorming designs for our holiday cards, and, best of all, putting together our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.

With 48 cities‘ worth of wonderful local businesses to draw from, putting together this year’s guide has been our most ambitious—and exciting—holiday undertaking to date, and after countless conversations with local business owners, artists, and artisans across the country and weeks of curating, editing, photographing, designing, and double-checking, we are thrilled to share this collection of some of our favorite things from throughout the TSG network with you.

If you see something you like, please pick up the phone and call the person who hand-selected or created it. If one of the stores is in your area, please pay them a visit and see what other treasures they have to offer (we promise, there are tons of beautiful and unique items out there—we wish we could have included them all!). Give yourself the gifts of discovery and making a personal connection while you shop this season. You will have no buyer’s remorse.

Here’s to a holiday season filled with the best of local!
