Whether it’s a gift for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, holiday or just time for a care package, this is your place to find the best hiking and backpacking gift ideas. My best advice is to give hiking gifts that you think your hiking friend will actually use – as hikers and backpackers we don’t want to carry around extra ounces that we don’t need 😉 And as much as possible, include a gift receipt in case they need to exchange anything.
Picking out gifts for other women can be hard, trust me, I know! But as an adventurous lady hiker myself, I can give you some adventurous gift ideas that I’d love to receive, or have received in the past and loved.
Having trouble deciding on the perfect hiking gift for him? I find it really difficult to pick out gifts for other people – will they like it? Will they use it? Will they think I’m weird for gifting this?! I probably way overthink it. But my hope is, the more gift ideas we all share, the easier it will be to discover and give amazing gifts!
While hiking gift baskets may take a little extra thought and time to put together, it is so worth it to go the extra mile and gift something you know your hiking friends and loved ones will truly appreciate and use for years down the road.
