Holiday Gift Guide for Every Outdoorsy Person on Your Life

According to Business Insider, eMarketer forecasts that US retail sales will top $1 trillion during the holiday season in 2019. However, just because everyone else seems to be spending a small fortune doesn’t mean you need to do the same. In fact, you can find wonderful holiday gifts at affordable prices if you do a little research, comparison shop, and dig for discounts. If you have friends, relatives, or co-workers who love camping, glamping, fishing, and other outdoor adventures, you can find the perfect holiday gift for each of them without busting your budget. Check out these gift ideas, presented by Willowcreek Custom Knives.


A backpack is a great gift idea for anyone who likes to camp or hike. To get a high-quality backpack, you don’t have to spend a bundle. You can shop the sales and look online for bag deals and promo codes to snag deep discounts.

Air Mattress

For the person who likes to “glamp” rather than camp, give them the gift of an air mattress for a little more comfort when they’re in the great outdoors. You can find a wide array of lightweight, portable air mattresses that inflate quickly and easily. These durable, comfy air mattresses come in a variety of sizes, styles, and price points.

Camping Chair

Anyone on your gift list who enjoys nature will appreciate a new camp chair. Camp chairs can be used around the campfire, while fishing at the lake, and just about anywhere else. You can find camp chairs everywhere. However, if possible, look for cheaper options at big-box stores, rather than at specialty outdoor shops.

Hydro Flask

VSCO girls aren’t the only ones who want Hydro Flasks this season. They are perfect for anyone who enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, or just walking around town. These insulated stainless steel water bottles keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours. They come in a variety of colors, are totally customizable, and make terrific stocking stuffers.

Pocket Knife

A good, reliable pocket knife is an essential tool for people who spend a lot of time in the great outdoors. Willowcreek Custom Knives offers a fine selection of pocket and hunting knives, as well as kitchen knives for the chef in your family — all of which can be personally engraved.

Camping Lantern

Let there be light for their outdoor expeditions. An LED camping light is essential for overnight camping trips and other adventures. These portable lights deliver bright light and incredible durability at an affordable price tag.

Stainless Steel Wine Glasses

For the glamper on your list, give her a bottle of her favorite wine and a set of stainless steel wine glasses for her next getaway. These glasses are unbreakable, making them the perfect option for outdoor fun, whether around the campfire or by the pool.


Another great stocking stuffer idea is a Leatherman multi-tool. These compact units feature everything from knives and scissors to pliers and wire cutters. You don’t need to purchase the priciest option available; instead, take a look at the smaller versions of the items on sale. They are all very useful for any outdoor excursion.

Sleeping Bag

As any seasoned camper will tell you, having a comfortable sleeping bag is essential when you spend time in nature. Although it’s easy to find sleeping bags online, locating the perfect one is often difficult. Using websites like Adventure Daily to dig through different products to find the perfect one for the outdoorsy person in your life.

Fishing Lures

For the person on your list who loves to fish, buy them a few fishing lures. Lures are often just a few dollars each, so you can easily buy several without breaking your holiday shopping budget. Look for lures in fun colors and unique styles for all your favorite fishermen in your life. Also, check out these other cool fishing gift ideas from Dodoburd.

If you have friends or family members who love to spend time outdoors, whether they like to camp, glamp, hike, or fish, you can find inexpensive gifts that they’ll appreciate and take with them on their next adventure.
