Holiday Gifts for Adventure Travelers

Got an adventure traveler in your life? You know, one of those folks who also seems to be setting off to scale mountains, hike, raft, climb, bike, and camp? Why not give them something they can really use (and will greatly appreciate) this holiday season?

Outdoor clothes, daypacks and field organizers are sure hits gifts for adventure travelers while the tech-lovers will appreciate a waterproof digital camera, helmet cam, or electronics cases for their many gadgets. If you don’t know what your loved one already has and doesn’t have, you can’t go wrong with dry packs or a gift card to an outdoor retailer like REI.

Gift ideas for backpackers can be equally helpful for the adventure-junky in your life. A durable waterproof camera, a couple of compression sacks, or the latest in ultralight backpacking gear will surely make any backpacker or adventure traveler smile this holiday season. Most travelers will say they can never have enough gear: after multiple uses even the best-made stuff can get worn out. So forget the ugly sweaters than will get pushed to the back of the closet or the candles that are nice but impersonal and make the adventure traveler in your life happy this year with a gift that’s perfect for them.
