Whether it’s camping, hiking, watersports, or simply having an outdoor picnic, my passion is outdoor recreation!  Here are my picks for a similar outdoorsy person on your list.

Best Gift for any Hiker – Wool Hiking Socks

You can never have too many hiking socks. Merino wool socks are the best – they wick moisture and prevent blisters.

You can buy online or in the store. When in doubt, give socks!

If you walk or hike with your dog, you need to carry waste bags, treats, and possibly a phone or keys. Carry your items in this Ultralight Black Hole Mini Hip Pack by Patagonia. This useful pack is available for purchase online or in the store at Travel and Nature in Exeter, NH for $29.
