It’s not always easy to shop for lovers of the outdoors – they know what to shop for to make the perfect hike or camping trip, and they tend to get it for themselves. Keeping an eye out for the latest innovations and conveniences can be difficult, too, especially with how much even simple technology can change. Concentrating on making their love of the outdoors a little simpler, so it’s easier to enjoy for them, is the best way to go. Here are five holiday gift ideas for that person who needs a cup of hot cocoa after a long hike.
Char-Broil 240 Liquid Propane Gas Grill
This 24-inch grill is propane powered, and has built-in handles and chunky legs so that is not only easy to set up, but ultra-portable. Its footprint is just big enough to cook big meals, but small enough to pack away to be easy to carry.
The Venture Pal Hiking Backpack
For just $23 on Amazon, this backpack comes in multiple colors and is replete with pockets for storing all those necessary outdoor tools, foods and other items needed for an easy hiking or camping experience. It’s good-sized, has padded shoulder straps and the material it is made from is water resistant. There’s nothing like a good, comfortable bit of storage that doesn’t impede your peaceful hike.
BEARZ Outdoor’s Pocket Blanket
It fits in the palm of your hand and it folds out to envelop you and keep your warm. It comes with a caribiner clip to strap to your belt or bag, and is so lightweight you won’t even notice it. Especially when warm blankets might be needed for emergencies, just as well as a cold night out in the woods, this portable blanket is a must-have for any serious camper.
WACACO’s Portable Coffee Maker
Every camping trip is okay to have one little luxury, and WACACO’s coffee maker should probably be it. It makes the coffee one cup at a time, brewing it directly in the mug you drink from. That way, you have fresh coffee all day, and if you run out, just use your cup to brew yourself another one as you walk.
Newton Ridge Waterproof Hiking Boots by Columbia
These hiking shoes are unusually comfortable and quite inexpensive for this type of boot. Coming in at under $100, these are a steal, especially considering the amount of support they supply your feet with. No hike or camping trip is complete without a pair of boots that keep your feet as healthy as possible after miles of walking and taking in the scenery.
Staying warm, fed and having your things all in one place is ideal for a camper. Keeping everything lightweight and low impact is also necessary, especially when outdoorsy people are usually huge on leaving nothing but footprints. These gifts will help them do exactly that, while also being comfortable, which allows them to take in nature uninterrupted.
