10 Perfect Stocking Stuffers for Outdoor Lovers

It’s Christmahanukwanza time! And that means ’tis the season to gift! And while we all know the big bow-topped gifts around the holidays are the main attraction (you know, the ones we all spent a week shaking and analyzing to determine if a new tent was hidden inside), stockings (or daily Hannukuh gifts or small Kwanzaa or Yule presents), are no less fun. So whether you’re looking for outdoorsy gifts under $50 or hand-held items that fit in oversized socks, we’ve got the goods. Here are 10 stellar stocking stuffers for outdoor lovers we either have and love (so you know they make good gifts) or wouldn’t mind unwrapping ourselves. Happy holidays!

2020 Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Best Gifts for Outdoor Lovers

Listen, when it comes to gifts around the holidays, we think less is more. We don’t want special holiday gift sets that come with an ornament declaring the year (it’s been a dumpster fire of a year, anyway, and we’d prefer not to commemorate it), bath products that smell like your third grader was experimenting with essential oils, or stuff we neither want nor need. We’re not about the materialism of the holiday, but just the same, we love receiving a quality, well-thought-out gift that fits seamlessly into our lifestyle as much as the next guy. And we figure plenty of our fellow outdoor lovers agree. So skip the random Amazon finds and the stuff you found at a craft fair that “made you think of them” (you know who you are, moms around the world), and get them something they’ll not only actually like, but can put to good use on their next hike, camping trip, backpacking adventure, or that they’ll want to make room for in their trusty van. These are those gifts. So what are you waiting for? Win the holidays this year with less waste and materialism (no matter what holiday you’re celebrating).
