Gifts for Getting Out Into Nature 

Let’s start with presents for nature lovers that they can use in the great outdoors. 

1. LifeStraw

Life straws are good gifts for nature lovers who love to hike and camp. They take up almost space, so are easy to carry.  They filter out 99.9% of waterborn parasites and bacteria, so they can safely drink stream water that may not be safe otherwise.

2. Battery-Operated Blender

Just because they love getting out into nature doesn’t mean they have to skip their juice.  This handy battery-operated blender is perfect for people who love camping, but like some of the creature comforts from home too.

3. LifeStraw Water Bottle

This water bottle has a built-in life straw, so they can filter water and then carry it with them.  Perfect!

4. Roasting Forks and Skewers

If your nature lover enjoys sitting around a fire, then they will love these forks and skewers to roast hotdogs, marshmallows and other yummy goodies.

5. Multi-Purpose Survival Pocket Tool

This may be the size of a credit card, but couldn’t be more useful.  There are 43 (!) different tools, from screw driver to bottle opener, hex wrench, and even a money clip! Plus, it has a hole to be used as a key ring. It makes a great stocking stuffer.

6. Hands-Free Camera Harness Strap

If your nature lover likes to take photos (and let’s face it, most of us do), they will love this hands-free camera harness.  They can carry their camera safely and have their hands free, and the harness is comfortable to wear.

7. Camping Hammock

Hammocks make cool gifts for nature lovers who love to relax. This handy camping hammock comes with tree straps and can be double or single.  It comes in 15 different colors.

8. Hiking Solar Smartphone Charger

When I go hiking, I often take photos on my phone, which flattens the battery very quickly.  If your nature lover is the same, then they will love this portable solar charger for Smartphones.  It has four panels that can be strung on the back of their pack so they can charge while they walk, and comes in a handy water-, dust- and shock-proof case.

9. Headlamp

This headlamp is great for hiking and camping.  It’s super bright and has a long-life (8-hour) rechargeable battery. Compact and lightweight, it makes a great stocking stuffer.

10. Dry Sack

Being out in nature can mean that their stuff gets wet.  Whether it is on a lake, river or the ocean, or just rain, they will appreciate having a dry bag to put their gear to keep it safe.  This one also has a front zippered pocket for easy access and a separate waterproof smartphone case included.

11. aLokSak Waterproof Bags

On the theme of keeping their gear dry, these 12 bags provide multiple easy and convenient bags to keep all their gear dry.

12. Emergency Survival Kit

This survival kit has 60 items that will come in handy when out in nature.  It includes a flashlight, knife, paracord bracelet and more.  It also comes with an exclusive first aid kit!

13. Sleeping Pad

They will love you for giving them this.  This three-inch self-inflating FlexFoam sleep mat is super comfortable, and packs up into a tiny bag that it comes with.

14. Tent

A tent is an essential item for being out in nature. The North Face Wawona tent is my pick for the best 4-perosn tent on the market (they also have a 6-perosn model).

15. Portable Stove

This Coleman portable butane stove has a full-sized hot plate burner, so they will feel like they have the comforts and ease of cooking at home.  But, it is compact and packs up easily into its own carry case.

16. Camping Cookware

This 15-piece cookware set has everything they need, including a pot, kettle, plastic bowls, cutlery set, frying pan and more.  And it packs up into one small mesh bag, so it’s easy to carry!

17. Garmin Handheld GPS

Nature lovers who enjoy hiking will love this gift.  The handheld navigator will keep them on track. My top pick for best handheld GPS for hiking is this Garmin model.

18. Binoculars

Binoculars make great gifts for nature lovers.  The Vortex Optics Diamondback binoculars are my pick for the best binoculars for the money – high quality and not too expensive.

Nature-Inspired Gifts  

Not all gifts for nature enthusiasts need to be used outdoors.  There are also great gifts inspired by nature that you can wear or use indoors.
