For The Hiking And Camping Gals

We’ve found a few things that are practical and useful for everyone, but also some things we didn’t know we needed until we saw them.

The Smartwool Performance Socks

These socks are wool, but they aren’t itchy! They’re the perfect stocking stuffer for warm feet by the campfire, and blister prevention on the trails.

The Cotopaxi Hip Pack

Big enough for the trails, and for travel. This hip pack is comfortable and stylish! Bonus: you’ll get lots of compliments!

The Marmot Always Summer Sleeping Bag

This sleeping bag is a great option for anything above 40ºF. It’s a great combination of lightweight and warmth needed for cool nights under the stars! 

The REI Shower Roll

This shower roll is the perfect gift for anyone who loves camping. Throw all of your toiletries in here, and hang it in the camp bathroom or a nearby tree. Then roll it back up – easy!

The Sawyer Mini Water Filter

This is a must-have for backpackers. Weighing only 2 oz. and sized to fit in the palm of your hand, the Sawyer Mini water filter is one of the lightest, most compact filters available, and you can use it to drink straight from a stream, or fill up your bottle for later!

The REI Lightweight Camping Chair

It’s always nice to have somewhere to sit while you camp, but nobody wants to lug a huge chair around. This chair is the perfect solution – comfortable, sturdy, and lightweight. It’s versatile for camping, backpacking, and everything in between.

The Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern

It’s important to have a lantern while camping, but they can take up so much space! This inflatable lantern will provide plenty of light and it’s small enough to throw in your backpack. And since it’s solar powered, you won’t have to worry about bringing batteries!

For The Road Tripping Gals

Turn on your driving playlist, grab your favorite snacks… and maybe a thing or two from our wishlist, and you’re off!

Blenders Eyewear Sunglasses

We love the Blenders Eyewear Lakey Motion Smoke Sydney Sunglasses because they gived the Ray-Ban vibes without the price tag. They’re polarized and perfect for a road trip.

A Hyrdoflask Water Bottle

If you don’t have one already, you need a fun colored hydroflask water bottle to go with your snacks, and that fits in your cup holder. This one doesn’t leak and keeps our drinks hot or cold for hours.

The Cotopaxi Cooler Bag

There is nothing more comforting than knowing you have all the snacks you could ever want while on a long road trip. We love the colors and capabilities of the Cotopaxi Hielo cooler backpack.

For The World Traveler Gals

Up your vacation game and feel more put together with these bags and organizers

The Osprey Women’s Pack – Fairview 55

It’s durable, has a well organized layout…and it has the comfortable suspension system you’d expect on a backcountry pack, but also has all the features you need for traveling the world! It even has a detachable day pack for shorter trips and it can be used as a carry-on…major bonus!

The Osprey Nebula 32L Backpack

This is a great casual backpack made from recycled nylon and has (an environmentally friendly) weather protection coating. It also has a padded laptop sleeve, and all the pockets you could need.

Osprey Ultralight Packing Cubes

If your suitcase explodes into a mess all over the place you’re staying as soon as you open it, these organizer cubes are for you. use them to separate dirty clothes from the rest of your pack, or keep small loose items from getting lost.

For The Hobbyist Gal

If you’re the one who is always looking for a new hobby, these gift ideas might spark your interest!

These K2 Rollerblades

The Alexis 80 Pro Skates are great for beginners because they provide a smooth skating experience and have a comfortable stabilizing boot. We also love the purple color!

The Bote Flood Aero Inflatable Paddleboard

This one is expensive, but if you’re getting into paddleboarding, this is a great board. It is inflatable which makes it easy to transport, and it was designed for efficiency and stability. This board is well thought out and also includes everything you’d need to go with it – like the travel bag, pump, repair kit, bungee chords for gear, etc.

The Gibbon Classic Slackline

This is a beginner slackline that you can take to the park and set up on trees. (it also comes with treewear protectors and a carry bag).

Nocs Provisions Binoculars

Hear us out – these are so cool because you can take up birdwatching or stargazing AND they’re water proof. They’re super lightweight and they have a phone camera adapter that you can add on if you want to take pictures!

For The Indoorsy Gals

Life can’t be a thrill every minute, so here are our favorite gifts for the down time between adventures!

The Teva ReEmber Slippers

These are cute, and practical. They have a rubber outsole so you can wear them outside if you need to.

The Patagonia Retro Pile Pullover

We’re adding this sweater to our Patagonia collection. It’s a shearling fleece quarter zip that comes in a bunch of fun colors – count us in!

The Rumpl Cozyhemp Throw Blanket

We’re really into the retro theme this year. You’ll catch us all snuggled up under this blanket with our tea and our book. (While wearing our Patagonia retro fleece, let’s be real).

The Darn Tough Queen Bee Crew Cushion Socks

They’re cute, and have a cushion bottom, enough said.

The Basin And Range Wide Legged Cropped Sweatpants

Wide leg pants are in again, so we’re updating our sweatpants collection with these soft cute drawstring pants.
