66 Unique Gifts They’ll Absolutely Love!

It’s not difficult to pick out the perfect adventure gift. All you need to look for is something that encourages your loved one to adventure longer, whether that be in nature or traveling somewhere halfway around the world. There’s an amazing adventure gift for every single person out there.

After years of exploring the great outdoors and traveling to over 85+ countries, we’ve narrowed down our favorite gifts for adventure and adrenaline lovers. Here they are in no particular order!

Adventure Gifts for Nature Lovers

Wacaco Nanospresso Maker

Wacaco Minipresso Cool Camping Gear

If your loved one is anything like us they’ll cherish their coffee. One of the best gifts for outdoor and adventure lovers that we can think of is a Nanopresso maker.

Even if you’re outside, there’s nothing any amount of open-air and beautiful scenery can do to stop your crazy sleepiness. Solution: a portable espresso maker. This thing is genius, pocket-sized, and even though it’s pricey, coffee fiends will not care at all. It’s especially helpful for when camping, imagine packing up a tent in a fraction of the time after using this outdoor product.

Snow Peak Folding Coffee Pour Over

Snow Peak Folding Coffee Pour Over Cool Camping Gear

But if you would rather gift a more traditional method of making coffee, forget the electronic gadgets and go for the Coffee Drip by Snow Peak. Part of the new Field Barista line by stylish Japanese outdoors brand Snow Peak (also including the Kettle and Coffee Grinder), the Coffee Drip disassembles into six pieces and comes with a handy bag to carry it around in. A cool way to get a caffeine fix for coffee aficionados. 

GSI Camp Stove Toaster

Camp Stove Toaster Cool Camping Gear

One thing that can be pretty difficult to obtain while camping is the humble slice of toast. Toast is a piece of bread – easy, you think. No, it’s not. Before you know it, you have a square of literal charcoal on the end of a skewer.

Make life easy and get the GSI Camp Toaster for a gift. It’s got neat holsters for your bread and sits on top of your butane stove, making sure the bread is not actually touching the flame. It folds away, too, making it easy to carry around.

Reusable Utensils

Reusable Utensils Eco Friendly Gifts

We always keep some of these in our car, backpack, hiking or with us when we’re traveling. Single-use plastic utensils are wasteful, so we aim to reduce where we can with reusable utensils. It’s a great sustainable gift that’s inexpensive and can be used by anyone.

MR300 Mosquito Repeller

Mosquitoes. You can’t do much about them other than holing up in a mesh net when outside and covering every inch of your body in clothing and/or DEET spray.

One awesome way to not be bitten to death by these awful critters is to invest in a mosquito repeller, namely the MR300. Using heat, this cool camping gadget disperses repellent into the air and creates a 15-foot no-mosquito-zone around you. It’s one of the coolest gifts for outdoor lovers.

Cute Apron

If you are looking for a cute gift idea for someone who loves to cook, an apron may be just what you need. Little Blue House makes unisex aprons that all have a fun design. I particularly love the moose print, but they also carry aprons with bears and beavers!

These aprons are made out of heavyweight cotton canvas for splatter protection and also have an adjustable neck loop. When you get it dirty, just throw it in the washer!

Personalized Ski and Snowboard Wall Art

We recently got our hands on this incredible wall art that is great for ski and snowboard couples and families. Powder Addicts creates awesome personalized metal chairlift wall decor. It makes the perfect adventure gift for snowbound enthusiasts. Check out their site, they have something for every ski and snowboard lover! Use the code TWP15 for 15% off!

MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe Stove

MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe Stove

This is the latest backpacking stove from MSR who has been designing these burners for ages, and the Deluxe is their best one yet. It’s not the lightest burner on the market, but at only three ounces, it’s pretty close.

It’s a significant update to the old RocketPocket 2 with new recessed burner holes, a regulator, a piezoelectric lighter, and pot supports. The result is a burner that is easier to light, burns consistently, and handles wind very well that feels nothing like its predecessor. This is a great gift for those that love camping.

Portable Solar Panel

Eco Friendly Gifts

This is great for adventurers, outdoors lovers, or even beach bums as it is a portable solar panel that can charge your phone, tablet, or small devices.

It’s rugged and built for backpacking adventures, so it’s made to stand up to being thrown into a dirty pack. What better eco gift than a solar panel to reduce energy consumption. It’s also a great lifeline for adventurers who like to get off the beaten path.

Bee’s Wrap

Bee's Wrap Sustainable Gift

Give the gift of being eco-friendly! Ditch the silly single-use plastic cling wrap for something that is both natural and reusable. They’re made from organic cotton, beeswax, oil, and tree resin for a fully natural product.

They work a lot like traditional cling wrap, except you’ll need to warm them up in your hands to shape and stick; plus, they’re washable. It’s a tremendous sustainable gift, and we love these ones with the bear print!

Pico Projector

Pico Projector Cool Camping Gear

A gift for the adventure lovers that still crave their movie time. Tiny and easy to tuck away in a bag, this is a cute bit of camping gear that’s perfect for chilling with a movie. Store whatever you want to watch on a USB drive or SD card, then plug it into the Pico AAXA P5 Projector, and away you go. Good for projecting on the outer or inner side of tents. Genius idea. Rechargeable and good for 135 minutes.

The Pint

The Pint Cool Camping Gear

Camping cups don’t get much cooler than The Pint canteen. Made by the good people at Stable Goods, this thing is a water bottle by day but converts easily into a cool-looking chalice by night. Fill with beer (or whatever takes your fancy) and refresh yourself in your throne as evening falls. If you hadn’t guessed, it would fit a pint of your favorite liquid.

JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker

JBL Flip 4 Cool Camping Gear

Weighing just over one pound, it’s pretty lightweight, and the JBL Flip 4 is a good quality in just about everything. It’s durable, waterproof, and suitable for 12 hours of music. Toss it in your bag, then connect your phone via Bluetooth to have whatever awesome music as a soundtrack to your camping trip.

Barebones Cast Iron + Trivet Set

Barebones Cast Iron + Trivet Set  Cool Camping Gear

If you want to give an adventure gift that is all about cooking when camping, this super simple frypan and pot set (complete with a trivet to rest it on) is a great option. It’s a no-frills set of stuff that ain’t exactly lightweight – like, we wouldn’t suggest putting this in a backpack – but it’ll be perfect for a road trip or lakeside retreat.

Yeti’s Lowlands Blanket

Yeti's Lowlands Blanket Cool Camping Gear

Another fantastic gift for outdoor lovers is the Yeti Lowlands blanket. It’s a great multi-use we’ve taken to using in the mountains. Of course, with the Yeti names comes premium products with a high price tag.

However, you get a blanket that extends far beyond the beach. We regularly use ours in the mountains on the cold ground, on a wet riverbank fishing, or when we’re out at a friend’s lakehouse.

BioLite Headlamp 330

BioLite Headlamp 330

Traditional outdoor headlamps have used disposable batteries such as AAs or AAAs. Batteries require a lot of minerals and resources. A great sustainable gift is a rechargeable headlamp via USB, such as the BioLite 330. If you combine this with the solar panel above, a backpacker could be off the grid for ages without needing extra batteries, and everyone likes a lighter pack!

Panini Press

Cool Camping Gear Panini Press

Regarding portable pie ovens, Rome is where it’s at. Their panini press is one of the coolest camping gear products we’ve ever seen. Paninis are good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can fill ‘em with whatever, and this press makes rustling up one of these awesome sandwiches a breeze.

Camp Shelter

Cool Camping Gear Camp Shelter

You’ve got your tents set up, which is great for shelter – obviously. But if you want some shelter outside the tent, this is a great option. This will keep out the sun and rain and cover one side, so it’ll keep out the wind. It makes for a perfect indoors-outdoors situation, which is what camping is all about!

Primus Campfire Prep Set

Primus Campfire Prep Set Cool Camping Gear

By campfire giants Primus, this is a neat little set with an oak fork, spatula, and spoon, a stainless steel grater, and the all-important 12cm campfire knife. It’s all rolled up in a polycotton wrap, so it’s easy to wedge it in your bag without it barely making a dent in your packing. With this set, you can unleash your inner chef without using cheap plastic utensils that bend when you try to cut stuff or melt in the pan.

Tailgating Table

Camerons Tailgating Table Cool Camping Gear

This is an all-in-one snacks ‘n’ drinks bonanza, one of the coolest camping gear products we’ve seen. It may not be a utility knife or some other nifty gadget, but sometimes simple is awesome. There are drinks-holders, a central holster for all your snacks, and the lowest part is keeping stuff as cold as possible. Perfect for sitting around a fire or rocking up at a music festival.

MPOWERD Luci 2.0 Solar Lantern

MPOWERD Luci Outdoor 2.0 Inflatable Solar Lantern

A small outdoor gift is a solar lantern. These sweet little solar lights are sure to be loved by anyone. MPOWERD makes small solar rechargeable lights that are great for camping, emergencies, outdoor adventures, or the backyard. However, what really makes them great is their initiative that uses a portion of the profits to bring solar power to those in need around the world.

Yeti Tundra 65

Yeti Tundra 65 Cool Camping Gear

Yeti is renowned for its durable coolers that keep ice for days one end. The Tundra is their flagship cooler, and the 65L is the most popular size for good reason. Being Yeti, this is one of the more expensive gifts for adventure and outdoor lovers, but it is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. Pack this holy grail of coolers with ice packs, food, and refreshments, and your camping trip will turn into a veritable banquet.

Scrubba Wash Bag

Scrubba Wash Bag Cool Camping Gear

No more excuses for having dirty clothes when you’re in the wilderness. The Scrubba Wash Bag is basically a dry bag, but on the inside, it’s coated with rubber nodules; mix in some water and soap, throw in your clothes, seal the bag up, and knead the bag like dough for regular wash cycle in just a few minutes. Simple but awesome.

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit Cool Camping Gear

It definitely isn’t cheap, but the Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pit is a great gift. The design maximizes the efficiency of burning woods, so you get a hot smoke-free fire, the perfect campfire. It’s built with stainless steel and should last for years to come.

GSI Pinnacle Camper Cookset

GSI Pinnacle Camper Cookset Cool Camping Gear

For probably the most comprehensive cooking set out there, go for the GSI Pinnacle Camper. It’s almost $140, but at that price, you get four plates, four bowls, four insulated mugs (complete with sip-it tops), and a two-liter pot with a strainer lid, which nest into a generous three-liter pot and frypan with a strainer lid. It’s all about efficient space-saving with this modular, Teflon-coated extravaganza of a camper cooking set.

UCO Stormproof Matches

Lighting a fire in damp conditions is not fun. One of the worst things about it is matches not even lighting in the first place. Getting yourself some UCO stormproof matches, ones that light even in the wind and rain – and will even light after being submerged in water – is a no-brainer. As long as there’s phosphorus (the orange bit), these things are virtually invincible!

United By Blue Steel Creek Reusable Straw Case

United By Blue Steel Creek Reusable Straw Case

We love products that take aim at reducing or solving a problem. A reusable straw is a great place to start as the vast majority of plastic straws never see a recycling plant.

Straws may be a bit of selective empathy, but we’re firm believers that every bit counts! Instead of just gifting some silicone or reusable straws check out this straw and case from United By Blue.

Hydro Flask Water Bottle

Hydro Flask Sustainable Gift

Water bottles are one of the simplest things to cut back on waste. We never buy single-use plastic water bottles. We have a wide selection of water bottles, but our favorites are from Hydroflask. The insulated aluminum water bottles keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours.

It doesn’t just do a good job at this, it does an excellent job and we’ve often enjoyed piping hot tea on cold morning hours after making it. As a big plus, aluminum is one of the best materials to recycle after the bottle has lived its very long life.

GoToob Travel Bottles

GoToob Travel Bottle Sustainable Gift Guide

No adventure traveler wants to lug around a full-sized body wash container. So give the gift of GoToobs the perfect travel accessory. GoToob bottles are made with durable silicon that is food safe and airplane carry-on. Of course, they are 100% BPA free and also a great eco-friendly gift idea.

The GoToob is made by HumanGear who makes a wide range of reusable products. We love their eco-friendly product line for things like their FlexiBowl, GoBites, and GoTubbs. It’s all gear made to be reusable thus eliminating one-use plastic products.

Ursa Major Natural Deodorant

Natural Deodorant Sustainable Gifts

There are all sorts of nasty stuff in your average deodorants such as aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, and triclosan. That’s why we long ago decided to make the switch to natural deodorants both for our health and the environment. Giving the gift of natural deodorant isn’t particularly exciting, but given its higher price tag, it’s sure to be appreciated as a stocking stuffer.

Pela Case

Pela Case Sustainable Gift

Almost everyone these days has a case on their phone to protect it drops and falls. A phone case may be far from single-use, but it definitely has a shelf life. These cases made from Pela are 100% compostable and made from plants!

Raw Elements Eco Sunscreen

Raw Elements Eco Sunscreen Sustainable Gift

Modern sunblock has a slew of damaging chemicals in them that have proven toxic to coral and marine life. It’s been estimated that a whopping 14,000 tons of sunscreen makes it way into coral reefs each year.

In that sunscreen are chemicals such as oxybenzone and octinoxate that are known to be toxic to coral. Raw Elements is a Hawaiian based sunscreen manufacturer whose aim is to produce coral safe sunscreen. Help save our reefs and give the gift one of our favorite eco-friendly products, reef-safe sunscreen.

REI Co-op Life Outdoors Small Tote

Tote Sustainable Gift

Ditch the plastic bags for a cute canvas tote! There are a plethora of fun designs and prints you can find anywhere, but we love this one from REI. If you want to make is a full set consider giving mesh reusable produce bags as a sustainable gift.

ENO Travel Hammock

ENO Travel Hammock

This is a great unisex adventure gift, but any one who loves nature is going to love a travel hammock if they don’t already own one. You may even consider the double hammock if you are getting a gift for a couple. It’s the perfect gift for backpackers or those who spend a lot of time outdoors.

The hammocks are super lightweight, strong, and easy to use. I suggest picking up the ENO SlapStraps too, as it makes it easy to throw the hammock up anywhere.

Hiking Backpack with Raincover

The most important thing on a backpacking checklist. A proper hiking backpack supports the weight of your load and should hold everything you need for a trip in the great outdoors. A good hiking backpack should be comfortable, have a nice design, proper material, and be the correct volume and weight for your trip. We break down all the best hiking backpacks here.

Our new favorite hiking backpack is made by Gregory. The Gregory Baltoro Gregory backpack is a workhorse designed to be used and abused. The Baltoro/Deva is designed to carry a heavy load without breaking your back on the trail. It has a superior suspension system with plush padding and a great organization.


Any nature lover needs a good daypack. An adventure a daypack should be more than enough to hold your belongings. My daypack usually consists of a shell jacket, down jacket, hiking poles, bear spray, snacks, water, gloves, chapstick, a buff, first aid kit, navigation, and an emergency blanket.

I love Camelbak daypacks. They are sturdy and fit well on my back with a proper suspension system. This is the Women’s Sequoia 22. The pack has a stretch overflow pocket, trekking pole attachments, an air support back panel, dual-wing belt, and is built for smaller torsos (I am short.) Their packs are lightweight and sit on the back so well. Cameron has the Fourteener, which is equally amazing. This is one of those 10 essentials for hiking you need.

MSR Hubba Hubba Tent

Does the person you’re getting a gift for love the backcountry? When backpacking something ultralight is needed. Our go to is our MSR Hubba Hubba 2 backpacking person ten.

The Hubba Hubba is a top seller for MSR. It’s ultralight and has a super fast setup system. This tent is waterproof and ultra durable for any mountain adventure. It’s a great size for two people and there is even extra space to move around.

NeoAir Uber Lite

Light sleeping pads are essential for nature and camping lovers. Not only are sleeping pads more comfortable, but it provides insolation that you’ll need to stay warm. The ground gets very cold in the wilderness, even if it’s summer. Without a sleeping pad under you, your body will take in all that cold.

We travel with the new NeoAir Uber Lite. It’s good for backpacking since it only weighs 8oz and you can blow it up in under two minutes.

Compressible Pillow

Best Hiking Clothes for Women

A pillow is a backpacking essential for a good night sleep in the mountains. Therm-A-Rest makes durable pillows from upcycled foam. These pillows are soft, and expand large enough for a comfortable rest.

Therm-A-Rest Sleeping Bag

things to wear hiking

Don’t let your loved one go into the backcountry without a sleeping bag. Even in the summer, it gets cold at night when camping and a proper sleeping bag is needed to provide warmth. We personally have the new Vesper 20F/-6C Quilt. This is an awesome comfortable sleeping bag featuring 900-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down. It’s ultra light and good for overnight backpacking trips.

Hiking Poles

Black Diamond Hiking Poles - Packing List

If there are plans to take part in a long day or multi-day hike a pair of hiking poles are a great way to save your knees and prevent injuries. When out for a full day of hiking in the mountains you’ll gain and descend a lot of elevation. So, it’s easy for legs to get tired and a pair of hiking poles will pay off. Although I don’t always need hiking poles, they are always in my pack. I almost ALWAYS end up using at least one while I’m descending a mountain.

Black Diamond is a company dedicated to mountain sports and has worked hard to craft wonderful products. I personally use the Black Diamond FLZ Hiking Poles, but there are some other great poles out there produced by companies like REI and MSR. “Z” poles are fantastic as they’re lightweight and can be stashed inside a backpack should you not need them.

Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard

There is no better adventure gift for someone that lives by the water than the gift of a stand-up paddleboard. We just got our first inflatable SUP boards this past summer and they make every day outside so much better.

It’s now never a question of IF we will go out on the water, but when we are heading out on the water every day with our boards.

We debated for a long time about getting inflatable ones and are so happy with our decision. Now we can take these boards anywhere, even hiking to a secret lake.

Clothing Gifts for Adventurers

California Cowboy Flannel

California Cowboy Gifts For Travel

One of the best gifts for camping is a heavy duty and high quality flannel.

If I’m camping there is at least one flannel in my bag. Flannels make for great camping and hiking clothes because they are comfortable, warm, and can be worn several times without need for a wash. Also, in the right setting, they look and feel right at home.

My favorites are from California Cowboy. California Cowboy is a small apparel store out of California producing hip, crazy comfortable, and functional clothes.

Their High Sierra shirt is made out of super soft flannel, and warm thermal lining. Plus it has all kinds of pockets to keep a phone, chapstick, or a cold beer. It’s an awesome travel gift that feels more like a jacket than your standard flannel.

REI Co-op 650 Down Jacket 2.0

REI Co-op 650 Down Jacket 2.0

Everyone loves a comfy jacket and we think packable down jackets make a tremendous gift. For several years, we have loved REI’s affordable 650 down Jacket, but now they’ve taken it a step further. Their latest iteration of the jacket employs a shell of recycled nylon taffeta and ethically sourced down. The end result is a more environmentally conscious gift with great performance and value.

Patagonia Fjord Flannel Shirt

Patagonia Fjord Flannel Shirt Eco Friendly Gifts

The difference between organic cotton and commercially grown cotton is massive. It’s easy to view “organic” as a marketing term these days, but in reality, organic cotton consumes far more water and is widely considered the dirtiest crop worldwide.

Conventional cotton accounts for 25% of all pesticides in use around the world. A great sustainable gift or eco-friendly gift is an organic flannel like the Fjord Flannel from Patagonia. It’s perfect for cooler weather and fits a wide range of activities.

Toad&Co Cue Wrap Dress

Toad and Cue Sustainable Dress

A versatile dress like this one from Toad&Co is a tremendous eco-friendly gift. Tasha uses this one for everyday life. A flattering fit makes it appropriate for a wide variety of uses.

It’s made from a blend of organic cotton and Tencel, a sustainable fabric made from eucalyptus trees. The fabric is super comfortable as it’s roomy, airy, and super soft to the touch.

prAna Vaha Pant

Pair of pants sustainable gift

These are my favorite pair of pants to ever bee worn. They’re also eco-friendly so when our package from prAna arrived with no in a paper envelope with no plastic packaging we were impressed.

Hemp and recycled polyester give the breathability to the pants with quick-dry, and odor-fighting qualities along with being a heck of an eco-friendly product. We’re pretty big fans of prAna so we highly recommend checking out some of their products. The women’s pant is the Summit pant and the men’s is the Vaha pant.

tasc Performance Shirt

tasc Performance Shirt

This is probably the most comfortable performance shirt in the world. Made from a blend of organic cotton, bamboo viscose, and spandex the fabric is both eco-friendly and super soft to the touch. The durability of shirts is impressive as they do not pill or fade even after multiple washes.

Over the years they’ve developed a loyal following, and the shirts deserve the praise. You’re going to want to order at least two of these shirts because you’ll want one for yourself too.

Kuhl Flight Vest

My all time favorite vest is made by Kuhl. It’s good to go in any outdoor adventure. Whether that’s on the slops are hiking around the wilderness it looks and feels amazing. Seriously, out of all the outdoor vests I own this is by far the most stylish. It’s a great adventure gift for women!

Non Tangible Adventure Gifts

Tinggly Experience Box

Tinggly Travel Gifts

Give someone special the gift of an experience rather than a material item with a Tinggly gift box. We’re firm believers in having experiences in life rather than possessions. However, until recently, you could only give the gift of experience by taking someone on an expensive vacation. With their new gift system, you’re able to send someone a collection of experiences from which to choose. This is a great sustainable gift idea that never expires!

Each Tinggly box comes with a catalog of theme experiences whether that be one for romance, adventure, driving, him, her, or even skydiving. The experiences are located in over 100 countries around the world so they can use it on their next trip, find some inspiration for the next trip, or enjoy something locally.

REI Gift Card

You really can’t go wrong with a gift card. REI is our favorite outdoor retailer. REI has been one of the best places to grab outdoor gear sine 1938. They are well known for treating their employees well, giving back, and running a sustainable company! So go ahead and feel good about that gift card!

Donation to National Forest Foundation

National Forest Foundation

Make the gift of a future for your loved ones or friend with a donation to the National Forest Foundation. They take action to help protect millions of acres of forest and replanting millions of trees more.

Glamping Hub Gift Card

Plan Trip to Hawaii - Glamping Hub

Give the gift of unique accommodation and some travel inspiration with a gift card to Glamping Hub. The travel website operates as a portal for unique accommodation all around the world. You can book stays in a yurt (as we did in Hawaii), treehouse, eco-cabin, or even a converted airstream. Glamping hub specializes in “glamping” the art of luxurious camping. So expected to find properties in some gorgeous and secluded parts of the world. We love unique stays and would take a treehouse over a corporate chain hotel any day of the week.

Adventure Gifts for Travel Lovers

GoPro Hero 8

GoPro Hero 8 Travel Gifts

The GoPro is the perfect travel gift to give someone for any occasion. It’s small, lightweight, and it doesn’t cost nearly as much as some cameras on the market. If the person you are shopping for is into adventure and action there is no better thing to get them than a GoPro.

We love to play in the water, snowboard, and use it for all different kinds of adventure shots. You can also pick up a helmet mount, selfie stick, or all kinds of other GoPro accessories. If you don’t want to shell out the cash for brand name consider looking at our GoPro alternatives.

Peak Design Everyday Backpack

Peak Design Everyday Backpack Best Daypack For Travel

This is an awesome daypack and backpack that works well for travel and everyday life. We love the gear we have from Peak Design and it’s all exceptionally high quality. Their Everyday Backpack provides a level of accessibility, organization, and quality we’ve seen in no other backpack so far.

It starts off with the top access which uses a patented MagLatch technology that pretty nifty in use and makes for quick access. Access is not limited to the top as both sides open for quick access to your bag that can be section via padded interior sleeves similar to a camera bag. The side pocket also comes with a plethora of pockets and storage that makes for easy organization. For travel, the tuckaway straps and integrated luggage carry system to make it easy to slip on top of a roller suitcase. It’s the perfect travel gift for techies and business travelers, albeit a bit expensive.

Travel Yoga Mat

best travel yoga mats

I love to travel everywhere with my yoga mats. If your loved one happens to be a yogi know that often when traveling yoga studios can be found. We’ve found places to practice in places like Costa Rica, Bali, and Hawaii. I love traveling with my Manduka travel mat when I just want to do a couple quick stretches.

The Manduka travel mat is super light and thin. It can fold up into a square and easily be packed away in luggage. I bring this in my carry on so when I’m enduring a long layover I can stretch at the airport. At $42 it won’t break the bank and has super grip technology for those sweaty times. You can also see all our favorite travel yoga mats here!

Where to Go When Coffee Table Book

Not every adventure gift requires someone to be doing something. For those downtimes at home, I like to have a good outdoor book to pick up and read. I just got the latest “Where to Go When” book from DK Publishing. It provides suggestions for so many travel destinations around the world and WHEN to go to them.

Woolnut Passport Sleeve

Another fantastic travel gift is a passport sleeve. I recently just found out about Woolnut, Woolnut goods are a Swedish company making luxury passport sleeves, Macbook sleeves, iPhone cases, and many other accessories using wool felt and full-grain leather. They are sophisticated at every level and really showcase the best of minimal Swedish design. These sleeves are built to last for a lifetime, so once you purchase this travel gift once you’ll never have to get one again!

Hydro Flask Coffee Thermos

For those who need more than a little shot of espresso in the morning – so no matter what your day entails, you can quench your thirst at every turn with this Hydroflask travel mug. No more wasteful paper cups of coffee, although you can really store anything in here that you want. The twist cap makes it entirely leak-proof, so if you’re the kind of person who likes to add flavor packets to water, or sugar to your coffee, you can feel okay about giving this one a dang good shake to mix things up.

The double-walled interior insulation will keep your morning coffee hot for up to 12 hours, or your icy water chilled for up to 24. If you happen to shop around a bit more with this brand, the cup is also compatible with other lids, so you can mix and match to best suit your needs for the day. Extra bonus: get color-happy. This baby comes in a whopping 12 different colors. See more of our favorite coffee thermos here.

Rainbow Flip Flops

We used to live in flip flops while at the beach, so when I discovered Rainbow Sandals 10 years ago I bought my first pair and never looked back. Rainbow Sandals are seriously the most comfortable sandal you could ever own. They take a little bit of breaking in, but once they form to your feet they are yours forever.

Rainbow Sandals create strong, quality footwear that won’t end up in a landfill. I’ve only had two pairs in my life. I’ll be getting a third, but not because they didn’t hold up, but because they were stolen from under my seat in Thailand and then again a dog ran away with my flops years later in Nusa Lembongan.

Their flip-flops are either made using hemp or quality leather, these strong fibers are durable and long-lasting. The hemp sole and strap are double-stitched using nylon thread. The bottom of all Rainbow Sandals is non-slip.


If you’re shopping for a new pair of travel shoes, likely, you’ve already come across Allbirds on the internet. They’ve billed themselves as the most comfortable shoes in the world, made to fight odor, be worn without socks, and generally handle the demands of travel exceptionally. Those are all some tall claims – I knew I had to have some.

We both got a few pairs and love them. The feeling of wearing them is best compared to wearing a wool sweater – comfortable and cozy. They are so soft and will be our new all-around travel shoes. Allbirds try their best to source sustainable materials for their shoes, which we love. The style is also great, and they look even better in person than online with high-quality details.

Epic Journeys: 245 Life-Changing Adventure

Who doesn’t love Nat Geo? We just got our hands on this gorgeous coffee table book and it inspires us every time we open it. With a curated bucket list of life-changing adventures and 350 vivid photographs, 225 detailed itineraries, and more than 20 “top ten” lists it’s the perfect travel gift for outdoor adventurers.

Gifts for Food Loving Adventurists

Buydeem Toaster

This 10 setting toaster is for those that are all about style in the kitchen. Buydeem makes fantastic toasters made of premium quality with a true vintage look. I love the 10 settings that help get our toast and bagels the perfect shade of brown. The extra wide slots mean you can toast anything from large pieces of bread to fluffy bagels!


Mandolins are great for making a lot of quick uniform cuts that are thin. Of course, it’s something that could be done with a sharp knife. That being said they’re extremely versatile, save a lot of time, and make up for any lack of knife skills.

Instant Pot

Instant Pots are all the rage these days and have brought back the pressure cooker into millions of homes. They make quick meals and perfect rice. Everything from stews to soups and roast chicken can be made in this bad boy with amazing results.

Texsport Heavy-Duty Over-Fire Camp Grill

Go for an old school gift with this heavy-duty camp grill for cooking over an open fire. It’s an affordable gift for any campers or those who to barbecue.

French Tapered Rolling Pin

A French rolling pin is a classic baking tool that is very simple, but extremely effective. It’s hard to not love the simple rolling pin that’s perfect for rolling out doughs for cookies or bread
