Few things are better for the body and soul than fresh air. But having the right gear for an outdoor adventure makes all the difference. So this holiday season, why not outfit the adventure-seeker in your life with a gift that encourages them to unplug and head into the great outdoors.
Whether they’re a seasoned voyager or a casual wanderer, they’re sure to log miles and miles of memorable experiences. Consider it a gift that keeps on giving.
A good headlamp is an outdoors game-changer. Not only does this one have a red light setting so you can still see the stars, it also has a locking feature so you never run out of battery unexpectedly.
An Eno Hammock is portable enough to bring on any hike, yet nice enough to set up in your backyard. It’s easy, too. All you have to do is tie the straps around some trees and you’re ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy the clouds rolling by.
Getaway Cabin Rental
Why not treat them to a vacay? Getaway offers luxe cabins outside of major cities equipped with everything you need to have a good time and get into nature. There’s something for everyone: whether it’s making smores or going on a gruelling hike, this will be the most memorable gift they’ve received yet.
Rumpl Puffy Sherpa Blanket
Whether your friend spends their outdoor time camping or watching football games from the stands, they’ll stay warm with a cozy blanket. This machine-washable pick features a dirt-resistant shell and a super soft sherpa lining.
Feast by Firelight
Tired of eating charred hot dogs and scrambled eggs on camping trips? How does honey-coriander pork chops with roasted corn salsa sound? Up the campfire cooking game with a copy of this collection of easy-to-prepare recipes for the great outdoors. In addition to delicious meal ideas, the book includes shopping and equipment lists and instructions on food prep and packing.
Danish Endurance Merino Wool Hiking and Walking Socks
Because there’s no better stocking stuffer than socks themselves. Merino wool helps keep feet warm (and dry) in the winter and allows for easy breathing in the summer heat, too. This pair has the seal of approval from Rasmus Kragh, a mountaineer who climbed Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen.
Yeti Roadie 20 Cooler
Yeti puts the cool in cooler. The brand’s signature “coldlock gasket” technology is sure to keep provisions cold (or warm), no matter the elements outside. This compact version can still hold 16 beers or 20 gallons of ice. And it comes in stylish hues like seafoam, too.
Outdoor Hound Dog Daypack
A four-legged hiking companion can carry his or her own supplies (may we suggest water, poop bags, and a few tennis balls?) on the trail with a pack made just for dogs. This model is light and breathable to optimize comfort for furry friends. Reflective stripes improve visibility and keep the dog safe as dusk sets in.
