This picnic blanket is one of the perfect gift ideas for outdoor lovers.

It rolls up in a small bundle tied with a beautiful tan leather handle and high-quality buckle.

13. Dry Bag
Dry bags aren’t only handy for kayaking and canoeing. They make great gifts for outside lovers in all sorts of situations where their phone or other valuables might get wet. Whether that is boating, fishing, camping, hiking or even going to the beach, a drybag is the best way for them to keep their gear dry. This one is even better because it comes with a waterproof iphone case.
Binoculars make great Christmas gifts for outdoor lovers because they are something kind of special, but also something they will love. In fact, once they have a set of great binoculars, they will hardly believe how they got by without them.
The best binoculars for the money are these Vortex Optics Diamondback 10×42 Roof Prism binos. There’s actually quite a lot to consider when buying binoculars, so I have written a guide that includes reviews of these and other great value binoculars here.
