Be The Best Gift Giver This Holiday Season

The holidays will be here before you know it, which means it's time to start thinking of the perfect gifts for family and friends.

Despite everything going on around us,  80% of Canadians are planning to shop as much as last year, or more, for the holidays. But finding the right gifts can be challenging.

If you are looking for gift ideas for the nature lovers on your list, look no further. Our holiday gift guide offers something for those who love adventure or relaxation in the great outdoors.

Whether it's a hammock with a stand or a solar powered lantern you're after, we've got you covered.

The items in this gift guide will ship quickly, directly to your address. So you don't have to worry about lugging heavy outdoor equipment across a busy holiday parking lot, and you can feel confident that you have purchased a gift the outdoor lover on your list will appreciate.

Backpack Cooler  

If your loved one enjoys day-long excursions, you may want to consider a backpack cooler. These backpacks for hikers are great for carrying snacks, food, and of course, a cold beverage.

It allows them to conveniently carry all the items required for the day. They are also great for keeping things cool and protected from wildlife when camping.

Inflatable Kayak  

Inflatable kayaks make great gifts for nature lovers. If you know someone who loves the water but hasn't been able to cart an awkward, heavy kayak around in the past, they will love an inflatable one.

A lot of inflatable kayaks are made to hold two people. So if you're lucky, maybe your loved one will bring you along!  

Solar Powered Lantern  

If you're looking for a more affordable option, a solar powered lantern is one of the most popular gifts for camping.

Many solar powered lanterns can be charged using USB technology. They are also often water-proof, so you won't have to worry about your loved one being caught in the dark if it rains.

Camping Spice Kit  

The next idea in the outdoor lover gift guide is a camping spice kit. These kits come with spice jars and a portable carrying case.

Why suffer through a weekend outdoors with no flavour? This camping spice kit will have your favourite camper trying new recipes out around the campfire.


Does your nature lover need a little R&R? There are some amazing hammocks available to help them relax comfortably in the fresh air.

Camping hammocks are perfect for trips to the wilderness. If you go this route, make sure to purchase accessories like tree straps, mosquito netting, or a rain fly for protection from the rain.

If you are concerned that the nature lover on your list may not be able to hang their hammock, consider one with a stand. These are convenient and comfortable.

Camping Utensil Organizer   

Many campers let their utensils float around in their backpacks, or stuff them in the trunks of their cars, which is less than ideal. Getting a camping utensil organizer will help the camper in your life find just what they need, when they need it.

Some organizers come in convenient carrying bags that can also be hung at the campsite for easy access to utensils. 

Customized Travel Mugs And Water Bottles  

Personalized travel mugs and water bottles are a thoughtful gift for any fan of the outdoors. Let your loved ones think of you as they sip on their morning coffee.

Some tumblers are fully customisable with images or names printed directly on the cup. These tumblers also keep drinks cool for up to 8 hours.


Multi-tools allow outdoor enthusiasts to carry a wide range of tools in one convenient object. They are lightweight and portable, so campers can keep them in their pockets at all times.

These are a great way to keep any camper out of a bind. Some of the tools include a saw, spring-action scissors, a cutting hook, a wire stripper, a can opener, and of course, a bottle opener.

Outdoor Subscription Box  

If you're still unsure of what to get from the holiday gift guide, consider buying your loved one an outdoor subscription box. Outdoor subscription boxes typically ship monthly and include hand-selected items from outdoor gear brands.

You'll have the option to select which package is best-suited for the outdoor lover on your list. It's the gift that keeps on giving all year long!

Pocket Blanket  

Next on the gift ideas for outdoor lovers list, is the pocket blanket. Let's face it, everyone loves a good blanket.

On those cooler nights, this can conveniently fold out and keep your loved one warmer. Then they can conveniently pack it away when they don't need it.

Hammock Chair With Stand (For Hanging Out In The Back Yard)  

If your nature lover is more of a homebody, consider purchasing a comfy hammock chair with a stand. It's the perfect place to cozy up with a coffee and a good book.

These come in 3 different colours and support up to 350 lbs.

Base Layers/Footwarmers  

Keep the outdoor lover on your list warm this winter with base layers and heated footwarmers. There are a number of these available online, so you can shop around until you find a good deal.

This is a great way to let your loved one know you're thinking of them.
