90 Gifts for Hikers

From Emergency Wilderness Chargers to Portable Water Carbonators

— December 1, 2015 — Lifestyle
These gifts for the hiker are perfect for those who prefer to spend their time in the great outdoors. Hiking is not only a great form of exercise, but it can also provide an escape from the stress of daily life. These hiker-friendly gift ideas are perfect for helping someone get outside and experience what nature has to offer.

For the tech-oriented hiker on your list, you might want to opt for a device that makes it easier to stay connected. Although hiking provides a reprieve from modern technology, it is a good idea to maintain some contact with friends and family. Some high-tech hiking gifts include solar-powered backpacks, walkie-talkie flashlights and emergency wilderness chargers.

If you're looking for a more simplistic present, there are a number of gifts for hikers that cater to avid outdoorsmen. These gifts include comfort-focused hiking apparel, collapsible water bottles and adventure-logging notebooks. These low-tech gifts provide a simple way for individuals to enjoy their next outdoor adventure.
