The Holiday Season is upon us, and now is usually the time of year where we stress out over trying to find the perfect gifts for all our family and friends. Well, if you happen to have someone in your life who loves camping, hiking, or just spending extended periods of time outdoors, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of some of the best gift options for outdoor lovers.
JetBoil Coffee Press
JetBoil is one of the most popular backpacking cook systems on the market. Now, you can bring along your favorite gourmet coffee on your next hiking or camping trip. The JetBoil Coffee Press easily attaches to the standard containers that come with JetBoil’s most popular systems, including Sumo, MiniMo, Flash, Zip, and Sol (just make sure you get the appropriate size—grande or classic). It acts as a traditional French press without having to bring additional hardware in your pack. Plus, it’s crazy affordable, as it can usually be found for under $10!
Helinox Chair Zero
Lightweight backpackers might scoff at the idea of bringing a chair out on the trail with them, but when they see how small and light the Helinox Chair Zero packs down they’ll likely change their minds. It’s a comfortable and sturdy camp chair and when it’s packed down it’s only slightly larger than a standard Nalgene bottle. Plus, the holidays are a great time to catch some fantastic deals on this particular product!
National Parks Annual Pass
One of the greatest gifts you can give to a serious outdoors enthusiast is an annual pass to a National Park. Not only will your loved one appreciate your kind gift, but you can rest easy knowing that 80% of the proceeds from the sales of park passes go toward the protection of the Federal lands, something that’s extremely important in our current political climate.
Swiss Army Knife
You can spend days surfing the web and reading reviews from outdoors experts regarding their opinions on the best outdoors knife. However, you simply cannot go wrong with a classic. A Swiss Army Knife has a place on the hip, in the pocket, or in the pack of every hiker, camper, fisherman, or general outdoor enthusiast. Plus, you can find one for just about any budget.
A Magazine Subscription
A subscription to an outdoors magazine is a great gift, and not to sound cliché, but it’s a gift that keeps giving the whole year. From Backpacker to Field and Stream, you can find countless options for the outdoorsman or woman in your life.
