Gift Ideas for Hikers
Hiking clothes don’t always have pockets – this gift will ensure they don’t have to think out their outfits so much (or worse, leave their phone in the car) by keeping their phone secure on their body while hiking.
I got my pair of hiking poles for a 4-day trek, but they came in handy even for a local hike such as Potato Chip Rock when I lived in San Diego – the poles make for a much easier hike on my knees. Make sure the hiking poles are collapsible like this pair for easy packing for hiking adventures your gift recipient may be flying to.
Who wants to lug around water bottles while hiking? A hydration pack makes it effortless to carry – and drink – the water while hiking.
Gift Guide for Water Sport Enthusiasts
Get them their own snorkel gear so they don’t have to spend money renting it on vacation or having to deal with subpar equipment through rental shops.
This action camera makes taking underwater pictures effortless.
Gift Ideas for Campers
An LED Headlamp (which is worn like a headband) gift will allow them to roast marshmallows or set up a tent in the dark effortlessly by simultaneously having a flashlight and being hands-free.
Sleeping Bag Mats
Mats to put under your sleeping bag make camping so much more comfortable. This one rolls up tightly to make it easy to pack or trek with.
Gift Guide for Adventurous Couples
Double Sleeping Bag
My brother and his wife got this two-person sleeping bag for their wedding and I thought it sounded way too claustrophobic, but was impressed how wide it actually was when laid out.
Magazine Subscription and Bottle of Wine
Before we had a child, my husband and I used to love to go to a wine bar to dream/plan our next trip. Now we do it at home after our daughter goes to bed. Help a couple you know get wanderlust by getting a subscription to a magazine like Outside or Afar, and a bottle of wine for them to drink while they pore over the latest issue.
Gift Ideas for Skiers and Snowboarders
Another thing to keep appendages warm? A good pair of wool socks that aren’t so thick they’ll be annoying wearing with boots and — just as importantly — not itchy.
Fleece Lined Leggings
Keep them warm and cuddly under their snowpants with these cozy fleece-lined leggings.
Rechargeable Hand Warmers
The thing that usually ruins a day of skiing or snowboarding for me is my hands or feet getting painfully cold. These sound much better than those hand warmers that you rub together and never last that long. I already bought some for a certain someone on my list. (I’d put them in my mittens on the chairlift and then switch to my pocket for the run down the mountain though — might not be the greatest thing to land on during a tumble. Maybe get these for the skilled skier/snowboarder on your list. 😉
Gift Guide for Adventurous Families
This baby carrier makes it easy for parents with a baby to still get out on the hiking trail. There’s even an infant insert you can get for before babies can hold up their heads on their own.
Lotus Travel Crib and Portable Baby Playard
There are Pack ‘n Plays and then there is the Lotus. I haven’t actually used this yet, but I’ve heard awesome things about it. Two things that sound appealing? The 15-second setup and the zipper that lets you sleep next to your child if they’re having trouble falling asleep.
Inspirational Family Travel Book
This book is about one family’s adventure in language learning around the world. It will get parents thinking creatively about the own adventures they can have with their kids. Plus, it’s an entertaining read.
