25 Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas Outdoor Lovers ALWAYS need!

Are you the ‘Indoorsy’ type shopping for an ‘Outdoorsy’ loved one, friend, or coworker? Not sure what your favorite hiker, backpacker, kayaker, hunter, fisherman, prepper or survivalist in your life already has or may still need? Just looking for some last-minute items to fill out that Christmas stocking? We’re here to help!

THE MOST ABSOLUTELY EPIC THING ABOUT THIS LIST: If they already have one, more is better! Nearly every item on this list is a stocking stuffer that ANY outdoor enthusiast, from beginner/casual day hiker to the most hard-core adventurer, needs, and needs more of!

Where I did not have personal experience with a product, I combed the web…I have spent days researching these products and reading reviews. I am a fanatic about buying the right thing the first time.

These are gifts that will NOT be unwanted or returned! Continue Reading
