Christmas Gift Ideas: Hiking and Traveling Apparel

Hikers love their high-tech and merino clothes! But they tend to get a bit expensive… no surprise then that we all would love to get some as a gift! If you know your recipient’s size – go ahead and buy one of the hiking apparel below. 

Let’s begin with the classic, shall we? SOCKS.

But those are not your old sad and boring socks! Those are beloved by all hikers lifesavers (well, foot savers to be precise!) – they provide the appropriate environment for the skin to make sure your hiker returns home blister-free and happy.

First of all – base layer. Yes, there are layers in wearing socks 🙂 the First layer is the very thin liner which job is to make the feet dry. The second layer is a thicker mix of wools, often with merino wool as the main fiber. 

I’ve been wearing those liners for all my hiking and I very rarely have any blisters – even after two weeks of daily trekking with a heavy backpack!

Depends on the typical activity of your loved one, you can choose lighter or thicker, with more or less amortization, etc. I picked for you the ones I use the most – and love them! I can guarantee – whichever you choose, you will make someone happy 🙂

Christmas Gift Ideas: Hiking and Traveling Gear

Now that our loved one is not going to freeze out there, we need to take care of the gear. All hikers and campers are on a constant quest to upgrade their gear. We all look for lighter or sturdier or more comfortable pieces. Our gear gets some serious beating and needs to be replaced once in a while – so even if you get your friend something they already have, no worries. It will be used anyway, eventually!

Find your inspiration with this ultimate list of Christmas Gift Ideas for hikers, campers, and travelers! 110+ ideas to make your Outdoorsy types happy! | gifts for hikers | gifts for her | gifts for him | stocking stuffers | Hanukkah gelt | Awomanafoot.comI will not offer big hiking backpacks here, as that is quite an individual thing.

What would be a camping kitchen or a hiking trip without a good knife?

Personally, I am not a big fan of multi-tools. They might be useful around the house or in a car but for backpacking are too heavy and rarely used. But a knife? That’s a must.
