In a time typically reserved for hibernation, and binge watching on Netflix, thinking outside of the gift box can be a great way to ignite some colder weather adventures for that outdoor enthusiast on your shopping list.
One of the many drivers behind creating CarGenerator was the love of outdoors, nature, and the want to create a product that would provide the freedom to enjoy life off the grid on your own terms. When most people think about winter and the great outdoors, their minds automatically go towards skiing and snowboarding, but that’s not all winter has to offer – particularly when it comes to getting gifts someone will love.
Here are some ideas to help make your holiday shopping a little easier.
Gift Outdoor Experiences
There are so many outdoor experiences available to gift. Consider renting (or buying) some fat tire bikes and book a date to explore winter trails. Book an ice fishing experience, try dog sledding, some time on a skating trail, or increase their outdoors know-how by signing up for a class at an outdoor survival school.
Gift Them Gear
Is it lack of gear keeping them inside when it’s cold out? Splurge on that winter ready tent, sleeping bag, or high performance down blanket to help make camping any time of year a breeze. If your warm weather hiker is on shaky footing when it’s icy, consider grabbing them some ice cleats to take the fear factor out of winter exploration.
Gift Warming Layers
Show you care with gifts that will keep them cozy, no matter how low the temperature dips. Stuff their stockings with thermal socks, gloves, mittens, or ‘pocket furnace’ hand and foot warmers. Looking for a gift with a big wow factor? Get them a new puff jacket, perfect for layering on really cold days, or wearing on its own in spring and fall.
Gift Spring Eternal
Get them inspired for warmer weather. Pick up some books or eBooks on hiking trails, road trip ideas, and outdoor bucket list destinations, and start planning your 2019 wanderlust adventures!
