Gift-giving is fun and satisfying, but it isn’t always a piece of cake to shop for someone. They might not want the usual suspects, such as a video game or a new smartphone – some people want anything that has to do with the outdoors. If you’re looking for a gift to give someone who can’t resist going adventuring every weekend, here are a few suggestions to add to your shopping list.
Annual Park Pass
If your friend practically lives in state or national parks, save them some ticket hassle by getting them an annual pass. Some passes also include wildlife refuges, which animal lovers will enjoy. Passes to Zion National Park, national forests, Yellowstone, and beyond can be found on their respective sites online. In addition, park passes nationally are typically good for a year after they’re purchased, meaning they have an entire year to see their favorite sites throughout the seasons.
Professional-Grade Sports Camera
No matter what adventures your friend has been on, they probably wish they’d recorded the best parts of them. That’s what makes sports cameras so perfect. These recording devices can be comfortably mounted on the body, a vehicle, a helmet, and other places. They record in high definition and are popular with people who ride motorcycles and bicycles, and can make for excellent viewing after the adventure is over to remember every moment.
UTV Sound Bar System
These portable soundbar systems bring your favorite music to the great outdoors, and can be brought hiking, camping, or boating. Simply strap it to an ATV, mountain bike, or boat dash, and your adventurer can enjoy their tunes anywhere they please. These soundbar systems can be operated through bluetooth and remote control, and provide incredible sound and bass to their next adventure.
If the person you’re getting a gift for travels internationally, they might have to deal with surprisingly different power outlets when they wander. Fortunately, there are many adapters on the market that cover outlet designs in a sizable number of countries, letting you keep your devices charged no matter where you go. Your adventurer will definitely be able to keep their phone, tablet, laptop, and other similar devices charged while they’re out.
Portable Power Bank
Sometimes, you don’t realize how much you rely on electricity until you run out of it. Portable power banks are a popular cell phone accessory which provide ultra-fast charging. Often the size of a phone, or even smaller, these power banks can be taken virtually anywhere. Even if you’re busy enjoying the outdoors, being able to contact others is always a safe idea. With this device, you can go out into nature where there are no outlets to plug in, and still know there’s a backup charge ready for you to use. Just make sure the device is properly charged before heading out.
No matter what activities your friend is into, there’s a product out there that can help them enjoy themselves more in the great outdoors.
