From camping essentials to tech-savvy gadgets, we've popped together the ultimate list to give your outdoor enthusiast. Our best gifts under $50 are sure to fuel the adventurer's spirit without denting your festive budget.
Everyone needs water right? The Nalgene 1L bottle has practically a cult following at this point and it is a favourite amongst all outdoorsy folks. They are BPA/BPS free, dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, leakproof and made from 50% recycled plastic. Nalgenes are made for the long yards with a lifetime guarantee so your gift will keep giving for years to come.
Next on the list of gifts and also life necessities is cutlery and the Traverse Stainless Steel Camping Cutlery Set is great value. It is a nice step up from the usual camping spork but still super lightweight with the set of three pieces only weighing 63g. So even your ultralight hiking friend will like these. The knife includes a bottle opener too, so forget having to scavenge to find something to open your drink while sitting around the campfire.
No more using a mobile phone for a torch. The Petzl Tikkina Compact 250 Lumen Headlamp is a nice gift for campers, hikers, and bikers or for keeping in the car in case of late-night flat tire emergencies. It features 3 light settings to suit a variety of settings and situations and is also water-resistant.
Want to flex your gift-giving skills? The Flextail Tiny Pump X-3 in 1 Rechargeable Mini Air Pump will soon be your camping friend’s favourite accessory. Instead of huffing and puffing to inflate their air mattress, this handy device can expend up to 180L a minute. At only the size of an egg, it comes with 5 different-sized nozzles to accommodate most inflatable products and can inflate up to 8 air mattresses with one charge.
The Eagle Creek Pack-It Isolate Clean/Dirty Packing Cube is great for anyone who has clothes. It is two-sided to keep clean clothes on one side and dirty ones on the other. The clean compartment is breathable to allow for ventilation and the dirty side is more secured to keep bad smells in and out. Their adventure or travelling companions will thank you for your awesome gift.
Say ‘bye’ to flies - or ‘shoo’ in this case. The Shooaway Fly Fans are a clean non-toxic way to keep pesky flies away from Christmas lunch or camping cookups. Don’t worry, the soft touch blades won’t hurt any little fingers trying to reach for an extra plate.
Patagonia is no doubt one of the most globally recognised and loved brands - not only for their high-quality, technical products but also for their pioneering way of doing business. Let My People Go Surfing is a book written by Patagonia co-founder, Yvon Chouinard, as he recalls how he went from being a climber to an equipment manufacturer to leading one of the most influential businesses in the world. It is an inspirational and engaging read for any outdoor enthusiast.
The Let’s Go Cards are a great gift for families or kids who like to spend time outside. The Let’s Go Camping Edition Cards include 6 games to choose from and they are designed to help kids build connections with the native animals and environment around them.
This might not be the most glamorous gift, but hear me out. Most outdoorsy people will need a towel at some point during their activities whether they are a twice-a-year camper or a full-time bikepacker. The Sea To Summit Drylite Towel is lightweight, compact, quick drying and absorbent.
Long gone are the days of single-use plastic bags and for good reason. Like a reusable water bottle, it is now the norm to carry a reusable carry bag. Rather than your mate carrying a bag from Woolies, grab them a Frank Green Reusable Carry Bag. It is sturdy, packs down into its own pouch and is made from 8 recycled PET bottles so it is good for the environment in more ways than one.
