10 Christmas Gifts for Walkers
We’ve all been there, struggling to find something for that awkward family member for Christmas. We are here to help, over the next few blogs we’ll be going over a list of items that we think will be perfect for that certain outdoor lover in your life.
Perfect gifts for walkers:
1. Rite In The Rain Pocket Notebook
In a changing climate like Britain, the driest days can have a shower. The Rite in the Rain pad allows you to write or sketch in all weathers without the paper tearing beneath your pencil.
2. Whitby Hand Warmer
The Whitby warmer is a stylish little thing. It works without a flame (making it both safe and reliable), just light it and slip it into it’s pouch to keep hands warm on a cold day. This product is 5 star rated by GO Outdoors customers. Can be used walking, or any other outdoor activity where hands might need a little warmth.
Buffs are a staple at gift time. Popular among fans of the outdoors, and with so many different ways you can wear them, and styles to choose from – there’s sure to be a buff out there for everyone.
4. North Ridge Hybrid Down Jacket
A real winter essential for those cold days. The Hybrid from North Ridge contains hydrophobic 90/10 goose down in the body of the coat, while utilising synthetic insulation under the arms to help keep you mobile and not feeling like a marshmallow. A great piece for those cold, crisp winter walks.
5. OS Maps
GO Outdoors stores stock a wide range of OS maps for you to choose from, pop in store and pick up your favourite adventurer a new area to discover.
6. OEX Vallo 35 Daypack
Daypacks are a vital piece in any day hike, the Vallo 35 is packed with enough space and features to give you plenty of options for carrying your kit. So whether your planning an overnight stay, or a space to carry your lunch and waterproof then the Vallo 35 is a perfect option for walkers.
7. Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Bracelet
A great little novelty piece that may well come in handy in survival situations. The stylish looking bracelet will unravel into 12 feet of high strength paracord. A whistle also adds an extra survival essential, making this piece easy to take with you and extremely useful when needed.
8. OEX X-Lite Trigger Trekking Poles (Pair)
At GO Outdoors we stock a range of walking poles that can be bought in singles or pairs. The OEX X-lite come in a pair and offer great value for money. Poles are ideal for helping to take some of the weight off your knees when out rambling over varied terrain.
9. Walking Socks
It might be a Christmas cliche, but while black cotton socks with pictures of Homer Simpson on them might draw a fake smile of gratitude from the receiver, walkers ALWAYS need more walking socks. They’re half the formula to a comfortable walk, so don’t feel bad about giving socks this Christmas.
10. Walking Boots
Of course! The obvious choice for any walker is a new pair of boots. We’ve got plenty of styles online and in store with some fantastic deals in the build up to Christmas, so it’s worth keeping an eye out. The boots featured above are a pair of our favourites: the Scarpa Cyrus, a comfortable pair of GORE-TEX boots ideal for any trail.
There are just a few ideas for the walker in your life. If you can’t find anything that suits, why not head over to our Christmas Shop where you’ll find a whole selection of products for the family adventurer.
