There's a reason it's called the Great Outdoors. Whether your friend enjoys hiking, camping, skiing or just spending her time outside, the outdoors provides constant entertainment and relaxation. All your outdoorsy friends will need the right equipment and fun accessories to serve her adventurous spirit so she can brave the weather, elements and any other venturesome obstacle that comes her way. 

1. Hammock


Every camper needs a good hammock. And based on the reviews, this one is definitely high-quality for an affordable price. Bring it on your camping trip or hang it between two trees in your backyard or on campus. Wherever you are, it will guarantee a worry-free place to relax and enjoy the nature.


2. Tis the Ski-Son Sweatshirt


This sweatshirt is perfect for the snow bunny in your life who can't wait to hit the slopes each year. Waking up when there is fresh powder is like waking up on Christmas Day. We're in love with this vintage-inspired design perfect for days on the slopes or days you're cozy by the fire in the lodge. 


3Fanny Pack


Your friend needs a place to put all of her camping essentials while on her trip AKA: hair ties, dry shampoo and her phone. This hip pack has lots of little compartments and is super lightweight + comes in tons of cute colors. 




4. Field Notes Camping Notebook

Field Notes

Camping trips are perfect for escaping technology, stress and responsibilities. It's the time to jot down your thoughts, create and share stories, or write songs by the campfire. This notebook is the perfect way to remember your favorite memories from your outdoor adventures. 



5. Essential Camp Book


If your friend needs a great book to read in her new hammock (referenced above), give her Ernest Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea". It's one of my personal favorites. For more recommendations of great outdoorsy books (which I have a ton),  try "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer or "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau.  



6. Snowball Maker


You can't have a snow day without a snowball fight... Embrace your inner Buddy the Elf and make a pile of perfect snowballs to equip your gang without the annoyance of cold, wet hands. You'll be a snowball pro in no time. 

7. Ouai To-Go Hair Kit

Urban Outfitters

Since showers are very rare for your outdoorsy friend, it's likely she needs some hair products that will keep her feeling and smelling fresh. The kit includes hair ties, dry shampoo, hair oil, and wave spray. She can bring it to the woods, the lake, the ocean, or the desert and your friend will wake up looking flawless; even on her fourth day of camping.


8. Emergency Rain Poncho

Paper Source

Mother Nature has a mind of her own so sometime she dumps rain on us when we're least expecting. Never go unprepared again with this easy-to-store, lightweight rain poncho. It says it's for cyclists on the packaging but it can be used for fishers, hikers and campers alike. Or just in case you find yourself in the situation where you smash a fire hydrant with a baseball bat like Queen B. 



9. Happy Camper Sweatshirt 


Your outdoorsy friend can't exist without fresh air, stargazing and nightly campfires. When she is one with nature, she is a happy camper.... figuratively and literally. Give her a shirt that describes her perfectly. 



10. Oasis Traveler S'well Bottle

S'well Bottle

Your friend can't be adventurous and on the go without a durable bottle that's great for keeping drinks both cold and hot. Make sure she hydrates in style with this cute traveller bottle that can accompany your friend on all her big adventures. 



11. National Parks Ornaments

Old World Christmas on Amazon

This is another perfect holiday gift for the National Parks enthusiast. Gift her a souvenir of her favorite hiking destination or gift her a set of all the parks she has visited. The ornaments that are offered are Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Great Smokey Mountains, Glacier, Acadia, Sequoia, and Yellowstone (we hope they make more because we are obsessed).


12National Parks Wall Map


Hiking every National Park is definitely a monumental task. Help your friend reach her #goals with this wall map so she can check off each park after she visits. 



13. Luminaid Packlite


This product is extra functional and has been used in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida after the devastations of Hurricanes Maria, Harvey and Irma. This inflatable solar-powered lantern runs up to 24 hours and even has a USB charger (perfect if you can't go without your smart phone). I first saw this product on Shark Tank and I love the story and the girls behind it! It's a must-have for every camper and really, for every person.



14. S'mores Kit

Whimsyandspice on Etsy

A camping trip is nothing without a s'more or two... or ten. Now you can bring the fun of s'mores anywhere you go! It includes in-house ingredients and makes up to 6 s'mores. Heads up: order by December 13th to get them in time for Christmas!
