They've spent more time sleeping under the stars then sleeping under a roof, and they wouldn't have it any other way. The problem with the outdoorsy-types is that, more often then not, they're minimalists. So what do you get the person that doesn't really want anything? Here are a few handy (and fun) gift ideas for the wild wanderer in your life.
PLUS: You could WIN the gifts pictured here!
Details at the bottom of this post.
1. Wolf Spirit Shield Hoodie by Carol Cavalaris ($48)
If they're heading out on an adventure this season, this thick and comfy wolf hoodie will be just what the need to stay dry and warm.
2. Big Face Sloth Tee ($22)
3. Zootility Pocket Monkey Multi-Tool via The Grommet (Set of 2 $19.95)
Full disclosure? I just gave these Zootility guys all my Christmas shopping money. This is something that everyone and anyone can use. This abstract looking contraption is actually 12 tools in one, with countless other uses depending on your imagination (ehem, like a ninja star!). Just watch the video. It's just so dang useful.
4. Muskie T-Shirt ($25)
Got a fisherman in the family? Meet that catch of their Holiday!
5. Big Face Fox T-Shirt by David Penfound ($22)
What does the fox say?! The world may never know. Perhaps you can ask the giftee when you give them this sly spirit animal?
6. Grayl Water Filtration Bottle via The Grommet ($59.95)
Dear Bear Grylls, We think maybe you could use one of these handy-dandy clean-water-in-15-seconds filtration bottles from Grayl (via The Grommet). It might prevent you from having to give yourself and enema again. Just sayin". Be prepared. Only you can prevent uncomfortable viewing experiences.
7. Ying Yang Wolves Tee by michael McGloin ($22)
Mother Nature can be a...well you know...BUT she can also be a glorious beauty. Give them this symbol as a reminder that balance is key in all aspects of a happy and fulfilling life, especially one spent in the wild.
8. Grizzly Growl Apparel (Varies)
Eye of the tiger? How about Growl of the Grizzly?! Help them scare away any threat and harness their inner beast mode with this ferocious spirit animal. Available in multiple body-styles (t-shirt and long-sleeve pictured here). Remember as long as you respect nature, nature will respect you. If you don't. You've got to deal with this guy.
9. Sea to Summit Pocket Shower ($29.95)
The usefulness of this item is pretty obvious. Hang out in the wilderness for long enough, and smells start to happen. This helps prevent the smells (along with some other unhygienic situations). This smart design from Sea to Summit gives them the luxury of a shower without taking up too much space, or adding a ton of weight to their pack. You can purchase it from the Kittery Trading Post. We did, and let us just say, it was shipped and in our hands in the blink of an eye. Props to their shipping department.
10. Insights by Andreas Lie ($25)
All the beauty of a wild landscape mixed with the power of its inhabitants in this simple digital double-exposure print for the wild at heart.
11. Shark Collage Tee by Tami Alba ($22)
Do they like to feel that salty breeze in their hair? Are they most at home with their toes in the sand? Then this tee is perfect for the fin-atic of your group.
12. Animal Spirit Circle by David Behrens ($22)
This tee pays tribute to the circle of life and our connectedness with all the animals of the world. Perfect for the harmonious one on your list.
