Holiday Gift Guide: For the Outdoor Lovers
Linnet Active Tech Stretch Headband ($36)
Anyone who gets active in winter knows that your earholes can get cold. And if you wear a headband or hat to keep them warm, getting your headphones situated and comfortable can also be a challenge. But this stretch headband actually has built-in audio speakers. So that your tunes can go with you everywhere you go. And, because sweat, they also can be removed for cleaning and convenience. A genius gift idea!
TomTom Adventurer ($349)
Prepare for your outdoor lover to GEEK OUT at getting this GPS watch. It’s specifically made for those who prefer to be active outside, including hikers, trail runners and those hitting the slopes. It comes equipped with a barometer, compass, built-in heart rate monitor, on-board music player and additional dedicated sports modes for trail running, hiking, skiing and snowboarding. It even automatically detects slope runs and provides live altitude for ascent and descent metrics. And, with extended battery life, it can give trail lovers a charge for an entire day of adventure, so that they can explore with confidence knowing that they can find their way back to their starting point.
Flite+ Tree Tent ($350)
Camping on the ground is alright, we guess. But when the earth is damp (or you just want to look extra cool to anyone who passes by your campsite), nothing rocks harder than one of these awesome tents from Tentsile. The Flite+ (pictured above) is a super lightweight two-person tent that can be used with trees or on the ground, and it packs up into a small, easy-to-carry bag — that’s not just awesome for the person setting it up, but also makes it a really fun surprise for the gift giver! There are loads of other sizes available, too, ranging from simple hammocks to larger, three-person tents.
Ameribag Reversible Carryall ($55)
You know that friend who’s always on the go? The one who’s always game to take a hike (in the woods or in a more urban setting) at the drop of a hat? That friend needs a bag that makes it easy — and comfortable — to carry everything she needs, and we’re thinking that this bag, called “The Healthy Backpack,” fits the bill due to the way it’s designed to distribute weight evenly. Plus? It’s way cute and has SO MANY POCKETS.
