2017 Gift Guide for the Outdoor Junkie

Here is a gift guide that is perfect for anyone who likes spending time outside. We think you will find something for any outdoor lover on your list. Check it out and let us know what you think!

1. Camera Backpack

Lowepro Photo Sport BP 200 AW II

This is a great gift for an outdoor lover. Especially one with a love for photography. Lowepro has tons of backpack options so you are sure to find the perfect one for your outdoor photographer. 

2. Hobo Hammock

Army Hammock
(DOUBLE) Green and Brown Hammock – Survivor

Hammocks are an awesome gift for someone who loves the outdoors. This double hammock will give you plenty of room and the hanging straps are included! For Black Friday you can purchase this hammock for only $44 with code HHFriday.

3. Guide Book

A guide book is a great gift for an outdoor adventurer. Secrets of the National Parks is great for those interested in getting beyond the crowded attractions in our National Parks. (You could also give this guide with an annual National Parks Pass). You might also consider The Ultimate Hang: An Illustrated Guide To Hammock Camping for those new to hammocking. 

4. A Camp Stove or Cooking Set

A propane stove is such a convenient way to prepare meals while camping. If you do not currently have one with your camping gear, I highly recommend it! You might also consider this smaller option. In regards to cookware, check out this set

5. An Outdoor Subscription Box

Cairn Monthly Subscription Box Example

There are tons of outdoor subscription boxes out there all at various prices. Cairn is a great option at $29.95/month. If you are looking for camp food, Fireside Provisions will tailor your meals to your adventure. Little Hiker is a box specifically tailored to your littles. It includes an item for you, snack items, and something to help your littles explore. 

6. A Book

Books are awesome to bring camping, or backpacking. A few weeks ago we put together a blog post full of our favorite outdoor related books. If you are looking for recommendations check out that post

7. Camp Kettle/Coffee Pot

For those outdoor adventurers who can’t go without their tea or coffee, get them a pot for the road! Here is an awesome coffee press you might consider. 

8. Shoes to take you places!

  1. Snowshoes – These are so much fun and you can find them pretty decently priced. There are even some adorable kids versions so the whole family can enjoy the snow. (You could also give these snow goggles). 
  2. Camping Slippers – Slip these on and snuggle into your sleeping bag to keep your feet extra toasty. 
  3. Running Shoes – A nice pair of running shoes and this cool flashlight would make the perfect gift for the sporty outdoorsman. 
  4. Hiking Shoes – Every outdoor person needs a good pair of hiking shoes, preferably waterproof. Check out this pair.

9. Solar Charger

Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Kit

Going for a long adventure without a power source? Bring along this awesome solar charger and never worry about loosing power. 

10. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

This is an awesome gift for anyone really. I use my waterproof bluetooth speaker what seems like daily. Great for music in the shower, or bring it camping without worrying about the elements ruining it. 

Hopefully you found something on this gift guide that peaked your interest. We here at Hobo Hammocks hope you have the best Thanksgiving and Holiday season. Happy Hanging!
