We all have that one friend who just can't seem to get enough of the great outdoors. They love it so much that it seems every weekend is filled with some sort of hiking expedition to a new mountain, river, or park they haven't been to yet. Or maybe they have been before and just need to go back for more! One way or the other, the great outdoors and them are two peas in a pod.
Thankfully, this hobby of theirs makes gift-giving fairly simple. As long as you're enabling their next big adventure, you're doing great!
If they're getting up early in the morning to hit the trails, they need caffeine and they need it hot! A YETI mug is sure to keep their morning boost ready to enjoy.
Even the most dedicated of hikers need a break every now and then! A mini cribbage board will keep them entertained without taking up too much valuable backpack space.
Just more ideas for their next big adventure!
Maybe they have a backpack they've used FOREVER...nothing like an upgrade to cheer them on toward more fun in the sun (or snow, whatever their hiking preference is).
If your friend is a tried and true hiker, chances are that they already have solid socks for hiking (and may be close to needing replacements). If your friend is newer to the hiking scene, help them out and get them some reliable socks so their feet stay happy all hike long!
Some hikes require backpacks, others only need a fanny pack! No need for them to haul around an empty backpack when a compact fanny pack would suffice!
There's nothing as satisfying as a quick dip in the lake sometime during a hike! But there's nothing as annoying as lugging around a damp towel. Help your pal avoid the problem altogether with a quick drying travel towel.
Who knows what kind of weather may be out there! The sun? The snow? The humidity? The wind? One way or the other, a compact, easy to carry lotion will surely come in HANDy.
I'm not saying that accidents happen while hiking, but sometimes you may get a little sliver in your fingers that you NEED a bandaid for. Henceforth, a mini first aid kit.
Sure, gloves are nice, but you know what makes winter hiking even better? Glove liners, to keep your hands extra toasty! A little extra comfort is always nice to receive!
A great way to end a hike? A nice cold beer. And who says a bottle opener is ever a bad thing to have handy?
Hiking views are the greatest views of all, someone has to capture them! But carrying a heavy camera around is less than ideal. Thankfully, a lens for your phone can capture all the views you want without taking up too much backpack space.
Hiking trails are often in mountains. Mountains are cold. Blankets are warm. Problem solved!
I know, they probably already have a reusable water bottle. But no sane hiker is going to turn down another! Go for a style different than the one they already have — spice it up!
Rocky trails can be problematic for both phones and humans. Unfortunately for our phones, they tend to take more stumbles than we do. Might as well protect them!
Being out in the woods all day is exhausting, especially for technological sidekicks. Help your friend's phone stay alive for as long as they need it to with a portable phone charger.
Nothing says "I love you" to a hiking enthusiast like an on-the-go snack! Help them stock up their backpack's pantry and you'll be their favorite person.
It's small, easy to store, and easy to clean. What more could they want from a pre-hike coffee maker?
Whether you join them for their next adventure or not, you can provide a light at the end of the tunnel! Or, more literally, in the tunnel with them — you get the point.
