When your idea of fun is walking mile after mile for days at a time, or sleeping in the dirt beneath the stars, you learn to appreciate the little things. A fresh pair of socks, a hot meal, or a toothbrush can send a backpacker into a state of elation, so shopping for gifts for outdoorsy types is a fairly low pressure ordeal. Here is a holiday gift guide for people who like to spend time outdoors. These twenty items are under $20, and are sure to please the outdoor enthusiast in your life.

20 gifts under $20

  1. A water bottle is a safe and practical gift that can work for anyone. We carry options from Camelbak, Nalgene, Klean Kanteen, and more!
  2. Believe it or not, you can get a hammock for under $20. The Ultralight Starter Hammock from Grand Trunk makes a wonderful gift for kids or adults.
  3. A good pair of gloves is a must have for outdoor pursuits in cold weather. We carry a selection of gloves from brands like Outdoor Research!
  4. Everyone needs a hat. We carry cold weather hats, baseball caps, sun hats, and more. Check out our selection of hats from local brands!
  5. BUFF® mulitfunctional headwear is not only practical, but it makes a cool and unique gift.
  6. Outdoor enthusiasts need a good pair of socks, but socks make great gifts for anyone. We recommend merino wool socks from Smartwool, WigWam, and point6.
  7. Never use a disposable plastic cup again! The Stainless Steel Pint from Klean Kanteen is sleek, durable, and great for camping or everyday use.
  8. There was a time when 20 bucks could only get you a dim, piddly little light. These days, $20 can get you one big, bad, bright headlamp. Check out our selection of Petzl and Princeton Tec headlamps.
  9. We have one of the best pocket knife selections in town. We have EDC knives for under $20, as well as high-end knives if you’re looking to splurge.
  10. Sometimes outside is dirty and wet. Don’t let all that progress on the next great American novel be for nought. Get a waterproof journal from Rite in the Rain.
  11. LifeStraw personal water filters are small, lightweight, and convenient, and make a great addition to any pack.
  12. A dry bag from SealLine is perfect for hikers, paddlers, or people who like to get out and swim in the summer.
  13. You can build a nice basic gear repair kit for under $20. Your friend or family member will thank you next time they put it to use out on the trail!
  14. As with #13, a first aid kit is the gift that keeps on giving.
  15. As mentioned before, a hot meal is a source of joy for outdoor enthusiasts. Help make that joy a reality with a mess kit.
  16. KAVU uses some really cool, unique fabrics for their products. Stand out with a KAVU wallet.
  17. Shopping for a java junkie or a tea freak? A MugMate reusable coffee/tea filter from MSR is the way to go.
  18. A pair of sunglasses says, “Hey, I think you’re cool, and also I want to help preserve your vision. So, here you go.”
  19. Build a skin care kit. Lip balm, hand salve, and sunscreen make a wonderful and useful gift.
  20. Even outdoor enthusiasts need a little downtime. Campfire games like a deck of cards or flying disks make great gifts.
