I know how hard it is to find the perfect gift for your outdoorsy person — let alone a gift you can actually afford! Why are outdoor things so damn expensive? There are so many specialized options out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I want to make buying for your outdoorsy friend easy, though, so I’ve rounded up some of my favourite gifts under $100!
These gifts are perfect for any occasion and your person will actually love them. Not just fake love it. I’ve also written about my favourite outdoor brands that give back if you want to support responsible brands.
PS: These also make great gifts for yourself. I won’t judge.
Enamel Camp Mugs
An enamel camp mug is a wonderful gift. It stands up well when it’s flung around in a backpack or camper, warmed up over a campfire, or anything else you can throw at it.
Darn Tough Hiking Socks
Your outdoorsy friend knows that their feet are their best friend in the wilderness, so treat them right! Darn Tough socks provide cushioning, blister protection, and come in all kinds of colours and styles.
Lifestraw is a water filter that lets you drink from lakes or streams without having to boil the water first. It’s a huge time saver for short hikes.
Enso Rings are the perfect silicone ring replacements for the adventurous couple in your life. They’re not meant to replace your wedding ring, but rather to wear when you’re out camping, hiking, skiing, or otherwise adventuring.
S’well Water Bottle
This is probably my favourite water bottle — ever. S’well does an unbelievable job at keeping colds cold (for 24 hours) and hots hot (for 12 hours). I love coming back from a hike to ice cold water.
Spivo Selfie Stick
The Spivo is the ultimate selfie stick. It lets you capture your adventures from every angle with the click of a button! You’ll never miss an action shot again. It’s lightweight, waterproof, and sturdy.
I’m always updating this list, so come back for more gifts under $100 next year! Or let me know what you think should make the cut, I’d love to hear about your favourite inexpensive outdoor gear.
