The 50 Absolute Best Gifts For Hikers

(Last Updated On: 16/12/2020)

As Micheal Bublé defrosts and the holidays come right around the corner, shopping for the best gifts for hikers, and anyone else for that matter, is at the top of everyone’s to-do list. For those of you that have a hiker in your life, getting them the BEST gift this season is going to be an absolute cakewalk with this gift guide *holds up three fingers indicating the boy scout honor hand signal*. I know that not everyone has a ton of money to spend each year, especially if you have a rather large family as I do, so I have included all different price ranges: gifts under $25, gifts from $25-$50, gifts from $50-$100, and gifts over $100. On top of that, I have included the best gifts for her and him at the end of this blog post that has awesome clothing and accessory recommendations if you don’t just want to buy technical gear. I wanted to make this gift list as versatile as possible and after scrolling through and putting the final touches on this beast of a post, I can proudly say that I’ve done exactly that!

This gift guide isn’t sponsored or anything, so all recommendations are based on brands that I love and use and gear that I love and use. I am a huge believer in sustainability, so these gifts are items that can be used for (and last for) lifetimes of adventure. The main focus of my gift-giving is ensuring that I am gifting something of quality rather than quantity, hence the use of quality brands in this blog post, so no matter what you choose to gift on this list, the adventurer in your life is going to appreciate it.

This post contains affiliate links for the products I mentioned, but as always, all opinions are my own. I make a small commission, at no extra cost to you, when you make a purchase or booking through these links. This helps to support this space and keep me blogging, which I am so extremely thankful for.

I’m currently working on my other gift guides, so in the meantime, check out some of my favorite hiking blog posts!

 


 

The Best Gifts For Hikers Under $25

Kickass Stocking Stuffers For Hikers

 


 

 

HydroFlask 18 oz Waterbottle

 

Hydro Flasks are seriously all ze rage in the hiking and outdoor communities because of their timeless design, durability, and their ability to keep fluids ice cold for 24 hours and hot for up to 8 hours! They come in a variety of different sizes, but this one is the best option price-wise! I’ve carried mine all over the globe and somehow it still manages to look brand new. These bottles are seriously awesome and worth all the hype they’ve been given this year! You can pick this size up in the lovely green color, as well as the white and blue, pictured above and linked below, or you can browse all their other colors here.

FALKE Trekking Socks

 

After I gave some serious field study to my hiking sock arsenal, FALKE came out on top as my absolute favorite. What makes these socks worth gifting for the hiker in your life? Let me tell ya. Not only do these socks come in a variety of styles, but a variety of thicknesses for temperature and trail ratings. Something that isn’t too common with more popular brands. If the hiker in your life places heavy value on summer exploration in the alpine, the TK1’s are my personal favorite for their breathability and ability to stay conformed to my foot. Alternatively for those that love colder climates and more intense expeditions, the TK4’s are another excellent choice! You won’t regret gifting these socks!

Adventure Medical Mountain Series Medical Kit

 

A rather inexpensive gift that will definitely be appreciated is a medical kit! This medical kit comes in a lot of different sizes for different types of hiking trips and group sizes, but if you want to stay under $25 for your gift, then the ‘2 people, 2 days’ is the best size to go with! Safety while hiking is extremely important and everyone needs to be carrying some type of medical gear with them. That looks different for everyone, but this is a great kit to cover all their bases! You can read reviews and specifics of this kit in the link below!

Bradley Mountain Waterproof Match Safe

 

If you’re on the hunt for thoughtful stocking stuffers, this waterproof match safe is perfect for those that love going into the backcountry, getting their hands dirty, and, literally, dancing in the rain! This small safe for matches will keep them soggy-free and prepped to start any fire. Plus, most boxes of matches get squished along the way anyway, so this will also help keep the matches structurally sound. Toss this in a stocking as a compliment to the other stocking stuffer ideas in this section.

Bradley Mountain Survival Book

 

Hands down, one of the coolest gifts you can give is this 1970, Department of the Navy Field Manual for Survival! This book is 288 pages of rugged and field-tested survival tactics for group survival, health and first aid, orientation and traveling, water, food, fire-making, cooking, hazards, survival and a whole lot more. This is a great gift for all hikers no matter the size and age, and who knows, this may help them survive a surprise apocalypse if one were to occur…You might even want to pick one up for yourself it’s so cool! I know I am!

GSI Outdoors Infinity Backpacker Mug

 

Coming from a fellow hiker, I LOVE THIS MUG. It keeps my coffee warm and my gear free from spills with the closeable top, but the best part is the fabric handle that can easily clip to a carabiner for the ultimate portable caffeine fix. This is perfect for coffee and tea lovers, or for hikers that like to pack soup along the trail during the fall season! This mug is best paired with the Alpine Instant Coffee listed below this gift! The dirty chai is the best!

C.S. Instant Coffee

What’s better than that fresh cup of instant coffee at the summit of your hike? A fresh cup of instant coffee that tastes bomb and doesn’t suck as most instant coffees do. And hear me out here, when it comes to blazing the trails, I take my coffee seriously! There have been many claims about what the BEST instant coffee is, some of those being horrifically wrong, and the others are just simply not as good as this one because this small coffee company is known by few. With biodegradable packaging, this robust arabica coffee tastes excellent even without creamer. That’s how you know it’s the real deal. It’s so smooth and lacks the acidity that ruins most other instant coffees. Gift this coffee to the coffee-loving hiker in your life and support a small business in the process! This stuff is seriously so good!

Bradley Mountain Adventure Log

 

Hiking and witnessing some of the most beautiful views in the world calls for a whole lot of writing and reflecting, in my experience. This adventure log has a small space to write notes and you can fill in where you are, who you’re with, what the weather is like, and what day it is for the ultimate memory catalog for the up and coming years. There have been so many times where I wish I had some type of log for my hikes, so I know that this will be a special gift for the hiker in your life.

Swiss Army Spartan Knife

 

Tools with multiple uses are the golden nugget of any hikers backpack. Especially a swiss army knife! The spartan style of this knife has twelve different tools including a corkscrew for opening bottles of wine, sooooooo it’s pretty much the perfect gift! It even has a can opener, so if you just so happen to buy cans without the little pully tab, then you aren’t screwed for dinner for the evening as I have been before! This tool will be a lifesaver on the trail!

Sea To Summit Lightweight Dry Bag

 

Dry bags, in my opinion, are like the creme de la creme of hiking gear. A lot of people never think they need one, but after one case of muddy shoes or a wet swimsuit later and they wish that they had one. This dry bag comes in a variety of different sizes, so you can get one that caters to your hiker’s needs, but the 4L option is both affordable and the perfect size to pack in with other hiking gear! To spice things up a bit you can even make this a surprise stocking and fill it with other goodies to give as a gift! Click the link below to see the other different sizes and colors or pick up this one pictured below!

Backpacker Hidden Gems: 100 Greatest Undiscovered Hikes Across America by Maren Horjus

 

If there is one thing that we hikers love the most, it’s a secluded and quiet trail, which can be hard to come by as the National Parks get busier and busier each year. A kickass gift to give is a book that highlights off the beaten path trails all around the United States that will get them excited to plan epic backpacking trips and enjoy the solitude of nature. I may actually get this for myself as I write this! You can pick this book for 15% with my link at Thriftbooks!

The Best Gifts For Hikers $25-$50

 


Petzl Tactikka Headlamp

 

Not only are headlamps one of the great gifts for hikers, but they also make a great stocking stuffer! I picked up this one before my recent trip to Utah and I can’t tell you how many times I thanked myself for picking this up. It’s great if you love sunrise/sunset hikes or if you ever happen to get to camp a little bit later than you would have wanted (guilty here lol). It’s a practical piece of hiking gear that I believe everyone should own, so if your hiker doesn’t have one, pick this up!

Sea To Summit Ultra-Sil eVent Compression Dry Sack

 

If backpacking is the name of the game, compression sacks are a must-have. I use this Sea To Summit compression sack that also happens to be waterproof, so it’s perfect for tossing your sleeping bag in there or your pajamas! Compression sacks help save a lot of space in a backpack, especially if backcountry camping is a favorite for the adventurer in your life! You can view all the sizes and prices below!

Osprey Packs Ultralight Backpack Rain Cover

 

A waterproof hiking backpack is every hiker’s dream gift, but until they make one of those, a rain cover does the job just fine! I have an Osprey backpack, so it makes sense for me to pack along this Osprey rain cover, but backcountry has all sorts of sizes and brands for whatever backpack your buying for. You can shop them with the link below! Since these pack down so much, this is another great gift to toss in a stocking!

Osprey Packs Hydration Bladder

 

A hydration bladder may seem frivolous when you can honestly just toss a bottle in your bag and call it a day, but this piece of gear has turned into one of my absolute MUST-HAVES for upgrading my hiking experience. I tend to hike at a faster pace, and carrying this on my back not only helps with weight distribution but allows me to stay properly hydrated without stopping frequently! Another feature I love is that you can carry large amounts of water at a time, which lessens refills on the trail! Pretty much anything that will keep me going is something I will grab first when I go to pack my hiking bag. This is a perfect gift for someone that is a fast-paced hiker and loves gear that improves or makes their trails easier to conquer.

Matador Pocket Blanket

 

For those pit stops for lunch or a quick snack mid-trail, I am always wishing that I had some type of blanket so set down to sit on! I discovered this pocket blanket recently and I love that it packs down to an unnoticeable size! I am all about saving space, keeping my food clean, and staying warm if I ever need the extra layer, so I love tossing this into my bag and pulling it out for those little moments!

Rite in the Rain Side-Spiral Notebook Kit

 

Most, if not all of my notebooks have been ruined by either saltwater or rain. It’s a real tragedy that I’ve had to deal with countless times, so to preserve my memories, this Rite in the Rain Notebook Kit is my absolute favorite! I plan on doing a thru-hike in the up and coming years and I know this is going to come in very handy whenever I encounter torrential downpours along the way!

Goal Zero Flip 36 Recharger

 

One of my biggest priorities while hiking is staying connected, so I love having a portable battery pack with me! This battery, in particular, can be charged by a cord or a solar panel which is awesome for backpacking trips and multi-day hikes! This charger is going to be on my wishlist this year, along with their nomad solar panel that is compact and great to pair with this battery pack!

Stasher Reusable Silicone Baggies

 

Another huge priority of mine on the trail is reducing waste, so I like to pack my own snacks before I head out! These Stasher bags help keep me and the planet healthy on all my adventures! These take the place of single-use plastic baggies, so while they are on the pricer side, they’re perfect for the hiker in your life that is also environmentally conscious!

GoMacro Bar Variety Pack

 

I love GoMacro. There is no question about that. Their energy bars are THE BEST and my favorite part about them is that they’re vegan, gluten-free, (some) nut-free, and they’re made with 100% whole ingredients so you’re not putting a bunch of crap in your body! These keep me feeling energized even on the toughest of trails! My favorite flavor is their NEW maple sea salt *drools*!

Roaming The Americas by Renee + Matthew Hahnel

 

I have followed Renee on Instagram for quite some time now and she has been one of my biggest inspirations for my photography and my adventures across the world. This year her and her husband Matthew released their very first book about their road trip to every single National Park in the United States! The photography is stunning and it’s the perfect book for gathering inspiration if you’re planning visits to National Parks!

The Best Gifts For Hikers $50-$100

 


National Parks Annual Pass

 

Oh yes. The big kahuna. If you’re visiting even two National Parks a year, this is 100% worth every cent that it costs. The annual pass gets you and whoever is in the car with you, access to all the National Parks in the United States! It’s a one-time cost that will save you a TON of money! I picked one up with my friend whenever we went on our road trip through all five of Utah’s National Parks and we saved hundreds of dollars between the two of us!

Outdoor Retailer Gift Card

 

I tend to be picky with certain items that I either like or want, so if you’re shopping for someone that is a little tough to shop for, a gift card is always a great gift no matter the circumstance! I get all my gear from Backcountry, hence all the links in this gift guide, but you can easily pick them up from other retailers like REI, Patagonia, or The North Face!

GARCIA Bear-Resistant Container

 

A bear-proof canister is an essential piece of gear for the hiker in your life that enjoys venturing into bear country. This is a solid gift for a hiker that frequents backcountry trails and has access to hiking in lesser-known areas. This GARCIA bear can will get them on the trail faster since they don’t have to find a place to rent one and it will keep their smelly items and food safe from bears, marmots, and other backcountry critters. This piece of gear is one that they will appreciate since most hikers don’t want to spend the extra money on one, but want it for their gear closet.

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter

 

One of the best gifts for hikers that is lower in price but big in satisfaction is the Sawyer Squeeze! This lightweight water filtration system is perfect for the hiker in your life that enjoys longer trails, overnight/multi-day backpacking, or if they want to shave some ounces off their total pack weight. What I like about this filter is that the filtration happens when you’re drinking through the bags provided, so you don’t have to spend a bunch of time filtering water at creeks and lakes. You just fill up the baggies and screw on the filter when you’re ready to sip! It allows me to save time on necessary pit stops, stay hydrated with ease, and save weight using their collapsable bags!

ENO DoubleNest Hammock

 

There was a time in my life where these hammocks were all the rage and I never found out why until I took a good nap in one of these bad boys. You can get them set up in only a few minutes and you have a comfy and cozy chill spot! When I arrive at locations with scenery that is “atmospheric as fuck”, as my guide in Scotland said, I always make it a point to take some photos and soak it all in while hanging out in this hammock!

Xero Shoes

 

Another great gift for the minimalist/granola/vegan hiker in your life is a pair of barefoot sandals! For a long time, I put off buying these, but once I splurged, they never came off my feet for an entire summer. I love that you can feel the ground as you walk and they’re easily cleaned with a bit of water and soap! They roll up into the smallest crepe looking rolls and fit perfectly into any size pack! These are a must for lightweight hikers and trips to hot springs!

The Best Gifts For Hikers $100+

 


Arc’Teryx Zeta SL Rain Jacket

 

Arc’teryx is an outdoor company that any hiker will rave about. The quality of the gear is immeasurable and this jacket, in particular, is one of my favorite pieces of hiking gear that I own! The jacket fits like a glove, however, I recommend sizing up for your giftee so that they can layer other clothing items underneath it. An excellent alternative to this jacket that’s comparable in quality is this jacket from Patagonia. Either of these choices will guarantee a massive smile when they’re opened!

Garmin InReach Mini GPS 2-Way Satellite Communicator

 

If you’re looking for a gift that is thoughtful and shows that you value the safety of the hiker in your life, a Garmin is a perfect selection. This small device has the ability to save offline maps, communicate via text, contact emergency services, receive weather updates, and a myriad of other features that make this one of the most sought after gifts for hikers. I have the Garmin InReach Explorer+ and it’s the piece of gear that I value the most. Having this item hanging from my backpack strap helps me feel confident and secure in the wilderness since I can open a live map with GPS and contact my loved ones.

Goal Zero Venture 30 Solar Recharging Kit

 

This is similar to the other Goal Zero charger I mentioned previously in this gift guide, but this comes with a weatherproof charger and solar panel, hence the price increase. I like that this was built with the outdoors in mind, so you can be in the most rugged place and still have the ability to stay connected using the sun. How sweet is that?!

JetBoil MiniMo Backpacking Stove + Good To Go Backpacking Meals

 

Food is one of my biggest concerns on the trail for a few reasons: 1. I have a huge appetite. 2. I travel as a vegan, and 3. I want to get to my food and hit the trails again as soon as possible. The JetBoil helps me achieve all of those things. From boiling water for coffee, literally in seconds, to cooking backpacking meals, soups, and even spaghetti on a cold night in Iceland (trust me I am still shocked about that one), I cannot go camping without this thing!

Stanley Ceramivac Go Series Growler + Stein Gift Set

 

If there is one thing that I don’t enjoy while hiking, it’s cold coffee, tea, hot cocoa, soup, and anything else that is best served hot. This Stanley gift set is a match made in heaven for those hikers that like to enjoy a cup of coffee at the summit, a hot bowl of soup at the end of a fall day, or even a cold craft beer! This will keep your drinks hot or cold for hours and hours on end so that you can enjoy them whenever you like! Honestly just imagine packing some homemade chili into this thing. Wow.

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Poles

 

A solid pair of trekking poles that are also compactable is one of the greatest things since sliced bread. These trekking poles are lightweight since they’re made from cork and carbon and they offer awesome stability on the trails. The cork wicks away moisture so kiss sweaty hands goodbye AND they even have an extended foam grip that is incredibly useful for more rough terrains. These will last for years on the trail and save your knees along the way!

Animas Watershed Drybag

 

For all those hiking trips where you know a regular hiking pack isn’t going to cut it, meet one of the best dry backpacks on the planet. This pack is great for multi-day trips as it can hold a few days worth of gear inside and the hip straps help give more stability to your back. These bags are military-grade and used by US Navy Seals! I am dying to get my hands on this pack!

Osprey Eja 48 L Backpack (Womens) or Osprey Exos 48 L Backpack (Mens)

 

While not everyone is in need of a brand new backpack in their life, there’s always someone on the hunt for an upgrade or their very first hiking pack! Osprey has been my tried and true brand for years now and I love their new Eja backpack! I have it in the beautiful indigo color and it fits all my camping gear perfectly! This pack comes in three different sizes; 38L, 48L, and 58L, so there is a size for everyone! I have the 48L and its plenty of space for everything I need while in the great outdoors!

It has a 100-hour battery life, barometric trends, storm alarms, distance graphs, digital compass, and so much more packed into this sweet piece of tech! Any hiker would love to flash this on the trails!

Wilderness Survival 101 Class

 

Something that I’ve always been wanting to do ever since I got into hiking was taking a wilderness survival class. Sometimes before I go out hiking I can get a little bit anxious and think of all the things that go wrong and I think that knowing how to take care of myself in turmoil would be both exhilarating and practical for my adventures! There are classes all over the United States that are available, so there is a list below of the best survival classes you can take! If you still want to give this gift but don’t have the budget, REI offers some wilderness courses that you can view here!

The Best Hiking Gifts For Her

 


Fjall Raven Kanken Classic Knit Beanie or Patagonia Fisherman Beanie

 

Any complete hiking outfit in the winter months comes with a beanie to keep you toasty through the trails. I love the minimalistic style of this beanie and that it comes in six different muted tones that are perfect for any explorer. Honestly, I wish I could have them all! One of the best things about it is that it was made to be super soft so that it doesn’t make your forehead itchy at all! You can shop for the other colors using the link below!

Prana Foundation Long-Sleeve Top

 

Longsleeve tops are essential for layering and staying cozy. I like styling mine underneath vests, flannels, and my larger coats for extra warmth! Another great thing about this Prana long sleeve top is that they come in a variety of different colors that absolutely rock for photos and style. The top is on the thinner side, so you can even sneak a thermal top underneath it if you need the extra bit!

Prana Brandie Sweater

 

A lot of the time, a cold neck is the first thing I noticed once those harsh winds pick up and so this sweater helps me retain heat or cool down with the button feature on the neckline! Like the rest of this list for the best hiking gifts for her, this is both stylish and functional at the same time. I like to order my sweaters a little bigger so that I can layer, but this sweater looks great fitted or slouchy.

Patagonia Fjord Long Sleeve Flannel

 

How cute is this flannel?! The best part about this is that it’s actually a thick and rugged flannel unlike the vast majority of thin, poor quality ones you can buy everywhere else. It’s made from 100% certified organic cotton which is a great plus for the environment and you! Whenever I was making this gift guide, my eyes went to this flannel almost immediately! It’s at the top of my wishlist for the holidays!

Patagonia Capilene Midweight Bottoms

 

A good staple piece. and a gift that any hiker would love to receive, is a solid pair of long john/baselayer bottoms. The capilene line from Patagonia is my favorite by a landslide because they fit in all the right places, are breathable, AND they don’t fall down while you’re in motion. They’re perfect for layering and any outdoorsy woman would love to open these up! I know I would!

Patagonia Capilene Midweight Crew Top

 

Moving right along with our baselayer trend, you can pair the bottoms that I just talked about with this top! I listed them both in black because I like having black baselayers for some reason, but there are other colors you can choose from for the right style and fit. This top will keep you insanely warm and it was a game-changer on my trip to Iceland!

Kula Cloth

 

A small but mighty gift to give the female hiker in your life is the beloved Kula Cloth. This anti-microbial piece of fabric is used as a pee cloth for the ladies outdoors. This makes going to the bathroom painless and easy because you don’t have to worry about packing out toilet paper and it’s always within arm’s reach hanging off the back of your backpack. These come in a variety of designs, with the s’mores being my personal favorite, with some designs coming from other ladies in the Kuula Cloth community! This product is changing the way women hike!

Danner Inquire Chukka Mid Hiking Boots

 

Browsing the thousands and thousands of hiking boots from outdoor retailers can be overwhelming, and with these boots, you can go ahead and close those tabs and prepare to give the gift of the season to your hiker. Danner Boots are one of the poster children for outdoor exploration. The quality of their boots will last seasons and seasons of wear all around the world. Good-looking hiking boots are difficult to come by and with a waterproof feature? Almost unheard of. These boots are on my own wishlist this year!

Patagonia Centered Tights

 

I used to never hike in leggings because they fell down all the time without failure, but these leggings by Patagonia stay up even in the roughest of terrains. Size down in these to ensure they stay fitting snugly! I wear these off the trail when I am running, doing yoga, or running errands, so they are stylish on and off the trail. I prefer these tights over my other tried and true pair that I have had for over five years!
