it’s part of the storyOur list of ideas, by theme, by recipient and by price, to help you find the perfect gift.
Choosing the best gift when it comes to the avid traveler in your life can feel like treacherous territory: You know they’ll love nothing more than trees, rocks, and stunning natural scenery, as far as the eye can see. Can see, but it is difficult to package it for the holidays. The best gifts for hiking are practical items that your hiker will actually enjoy and use, whether they’re starting on a 5-mile loop near home or on a multi-day backpacking trip somewhere off the grid.
Before we discuss the perfect gifts for hikers, let’s talk about which ones should be avoided. You’ll want to make sure to leave out clichés and gag goodies like the random colorful walking stick you find at your local farmers market or online (yes, this is something I’ve been given as a gift).
When you look for a great gift for the traveler in your life, take a look at some of my tips, which are based on my years of hiking experiences. There’s a good chance you’ll find some hiking gear on this list that your hiker doesn’t already have—or that could use an upgrade—before their next outdoor adventure.
