Although this winter was not the coldest in history, those who enjoy the outdoors are still happy to see it go. As the weather begins to get warmer and the sun begins to stay up longer, outdoor adventurers are getting their bikes, hiking gear, and climbing gear out of storage and are starting to get excited about the prospect of putting them to use this summer. These kinds of outdoor activities are great because they are entertaining and also get the heart going without having to do mundane exercises like run on a treadmill or ride a stationary bike. Also, let’s be honest, you look pretty cool while you are doing them as well.
If you have a friend who’s into outdoor adventures, you may want to make their next birthday gift something that will help them on their outdoor excursions. This may be a tough decision to make if you are not the outdoorsy type yourself. There are a lot of simple things that you can get for your adventure-seeking friends that are fairly inexpensive but could really make their day when they are on the trail or on the side of a mountain. Here are some items you may not have thought of that would make great gifts for outdoor adventurers.
These are some of the hottest accessories out there for those who like to adventure in more remote areas. They are commonly referred to as a survival kit that you can wear on your wrist. They can double as a cord for rappelling with a stainless steel clasp as well as a fashion item.
Extra Tire Tubes
You never know when your tire might pop or spring a leak when on the biking trail. That is why it is always helpful to have an extra tube on hand. This makes a great gift for a cyclist friend because this is something that they may not think to purchase for themselves. You never know how important they are until you need one. An air compressor could also be a great gift for your cyclist friends.
Camping is one of the most popular summer activities for families and survivalists as well. You can never account for the weather so it can be a great asset to those who enjoy camping as an activity to have a tent that can withstand the elements no matter what kind of situation the camper may find themselves in. It is pretty hard to get a good night’s sleep when you are soaking wet.
Shoes are a great gift for hikers, runners, and climbers. Make sure you understand the main activity that they will be used for so that you buy footwear that fits correctly and provides the right kind of grip.
These are just a few of the gifts you could purchase for your adventurer friends. There is no limit to what you can find. Remember, unlike other gifts, it is not always the thought that counts when it comes to outdoorsy gear. Make sure you have a basic understanding of the activities that your friend is interested in so you don’t buy them something that will fail them or that they will never use.
