Holiday shopping is upon us! I’m pretty Type A at times and like to have all my gifts squared away early (or at least know what I’m going to get so I can shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales online). Here is a gift guide for the adventurer or outdoor lover in your life (or for you! Treat yourself!)

1 Patagonia Black Hole Duffel – 55L
I’ve had this duffel bag for almost a year and it has been such a game changer for me. It’s lightweight and easy to organize. My favorite part is the backpack feature so that I can free up my hands or easily transport my luggage while traveling and not having to worry about lugging around something with wheels on a crappy road. The 55L has been the perfect size for me. I had more than enough space for my 2 week trip to Costa Rica with this bag!
2 Prana Permafrost 1/2-Zip Fleece Jacket
Cozy for hiking, traveling or lounging!
3. Roaming America – Exploring All the National Parks by Renee & Matthew Hahnel
You all may know @ReneeRoaming and @Matthewhahnel on Instagram. This book has detailed recommendations, stories, itineraries and more from their 7 month journey to all 59 US National Parks. This is definitely on my Christmas List.
4 Rumpl Original Puffy Blanket
This blanket is the most functional blanket I’ve seen on the market. Ripstop nylon fabric is lightweight, durable and insulated. Coating resists rain and dirt. It even includes a stuff sack for road trips or travel and it’s machine washable. Need. This. It’s my friend’s go-to-blanket when she’s out with her dog too!
5 LARQ Water Bottle
Alright guys, I’m intrigued by this. I didn’t realize how quickly bacteria can build up in your reusable water bottle. I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t clean my waterbottle every few hours. “The LARQ Bottle Movement actively self-cleans and purifies water in a lightweight single-walled stainless steel build–perfect for outdoor adventures, going to the gym, or whatever moves you. It uses proprietary UV-C LED technology to eliminate up to 99.9999% of bio-contaminants to keep your bottle and water clean all day long. ” OH, and the have a lot of rad colors.
6. KEEN Ultralight Crew Socks
Now that I’m in my late 20’s it seems like every holiday season I’m crossing my fingers for new socks. These look perfect. “This performance sock is built for adventuring into the sunset. Featuring contoured support, superior wicking and breathability, and the KEEN Wunderseam—a flat hidden seam for an irritation-free toe zone.”
7. Moment Professional Phone Lens
The idea of traveling with just my cell phone as a camera becomes more and more appealing. Works with the latest Apple, Google, Samsung and OnePlus devices and includes a lifetime warranty. I know people that have made short films and took professional photos using these lenses. I’m itching to try them out myself.
8 P.F. Candle Co. Sunset Candle
Their description says it all: ” Collection inspired by 1970s summers in California, in four nostalgic scents representing times of day and the feelings they spark within us. This soy wax candle is scented with fine fragrance oil and housed in a minimalist graphic lidded tin.” *drooling* Also, this is such a neat concept. Sunset is one of my favorite times to be outside.
9 Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat
I’ve always felt like this hat is such a functional and trendy staple for women and men. I’m currently overwhelmed by how many colors there are. I might have to get one neutral hat and one statement color…
10 Blundstone Boots
I have converted at least 3 people to Blundstone boots being their everyday shoe. I have had mine for a while now and it is SO nice to have one pair of shoes that I can use traveling for both outdoor activities and city exploration. Not to mention they are incredibly comfortable and waterproof. My boyfriend and I showed up to our first date both wearing these haha, we knew right then that we’d get along.
11. Enamel Mug – United by Blue
A lightweight mug is always in my pack for a camping trip or road trip. I strap mine to my backpack to show it off and use it for everything: wine, oatmeal, soup, painting. Definitely a staple for any outdoor lover. I am loving the colors and design of this one.
12. Pura Vida Jewelry
I have been a fan of this brand since sophomore year of college. They support 800+ Costa Rican artists and also support many charities. There is definitely affordable jewelry for everyone at Pura Vida.
Happy Holidays everyone!! I’m sure I’ll think of at least 10 more things I wish I put on here in 3 days UGH. Comment if you end up getting any of these items! We may be twinning!
