Best Camping Gifts on Amazon
This section should hit a lot of outdoorsy folks. It doesn’t really matter their hobby — mountain bikers, hikers, hunters, and trail runners all camp.
This cook kit will serve campers well both at the campground and on the trail. We used it while kayaking the John Day River and were impressed with the space-saving design. Two bowls and two mugs fit inside the cooking pot.
The award-winning LifeStraw filters up to 1,000 L of polluted water. With no batteries or moving parts, it’s a great addition to any travel or camping kit. Plus, it’s extremely portable and can be used to directly drink from practically any water source. For any camper, this product is a no-brainer.
Coleman Rugged Rechargeable Lantern: $45 (10% Off)
Sure, headlamps work around the campsite, but a lantern is a nice addition. Hang the Coleman Rugged Rechargeable from a branch and light the surrounding area.
Rechargeable with USB, you can plug it into your car to juice the battery when it runs low. A 20-hour runtime on low and up to 400 lumens on high will make the campsite a cozy place.

Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a gourmet meal. Mountain House’s dehydrated meal packs are made with real food ingredients — all you need to do is add hot water.
Best Biking and Cycling Gifts on Amazon
Bikers are a varied group. Unless you know their style, they can be hard to buy for. But we picked a few products that pretty much every biker needs in their kit.
Versatile Emergency Bike Tool: From $8
The Crank Brothers multitool has all the basics you need to tighten, adjust, and fix a bike on the trail. Plus, it’s lightweight and comes with a stainless steel “tool flask” to keep moisture and rust at bay. The tool lends peace of mind on every ride with a solid assortment of functions for common repairs on the trail.
This bike-security package comes with a standard U-lock and a 4-foot cable. Protect a bike by locking the front wheel and frame with the U and then lassoing the back wheel with the cable. The system gives proven security in all but the most theft-prone urban areas.
Best Trail-Running Gifts on Amazon
Trail runners aren’t very gear-intensive athletes. But the gear they do choose is critical and needs to work every time. These are a few we’ve put through the paces.
This lightweight pack doubles as a backpack and hydration pack. The perfect size to fit your phone, wallet, and snacks, this pack was made with men, women, and children in mind. Fully adjustable and versatile, this product is perfect for any adventurer.
Bowflex Dumbbells: $298
When it comes to cross-training, runners are the worst! But if anyone needs to lift weights to maintain a balanced body and avoid injury, it’s runners.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells are very versatile, allowing an athlete to do a wide variety of exercises. And they take up very little space. So help that runner do some strength conditioning with a simple, effective tool.
SCARPA’s Spin RS, available in both men’s and women’s, is designed for the masochistic high-mileage trail runner.
The Spin RS is light (verified 10.6 ounces in a men’s size 10) yet well-cushioned. It has an 8mm drop, Vibram Megagrip outsole with Lightbase technology, a TPU toe cap, and a quick-drying, highly breathable synthetic mesh and leather upper.
Sock-Fit LW construction eliminates a traditional tongue and replaces it with a stretchy softshell material, providing a better fit while reducing weight and bulk.
Best Skiing & Snowboarding Gifts on Amazon
For those who get after it in the winter, there are a few easy gear picks.
Hestra Army Leather Gloves: $145-170
The Hestra Army Leather Ski Glove is among our favorite gloves of all time. They’re not cheap at around $145, but if you need to keep hands warm, they’re a top choice.
HUBO SPORTS Ski Snow Goggles: $30-33
Skiers, cyclists, and snowmobilers (sometimes even winter hikers and climbers pushing through tough conditions) need serious eye protection. These goggles are an inexpensive choice. Both anti-fogging and anti-UV, these goggles also protect the eyes in case of an accident. And yes, glasses-wearers can use them too.
Warm socks are essential for the winter. And Smartwool socks offer great insulation to ensure your feet and toes stay warm and dry during outdoor winter activities. Machine washable, these socks are wonderful for colder climates.
