Holiday Gift Guide 2023: Gifts for Hikers

Are you looking for something special for that person in your life who loves the outdoors in general, and hiking in particular?  The holidays are fast approaching and you’ll enjoy our 2023 Gift Guide featuring gifts for hikers.

We’ve broken it down by price and for him/her for easy shopping and browsing.

I’m not sure how many trails they’ve hiked since we’ve been on the road, but traveling across the country in an RV sure opens up the possibilities. Some of their favorite trails have been Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park, a hiking trail in Banff, Canada that leads to a tea house and exploring the waterfalls in Oregon in the Umpqua National Forest.

My husband has hiked every kind of trail you can imagine. I see the joy in his eyes at the end of a good long hike, which is why I’ll be checking out a few of these gifts for him.

If your preparing early, explore the full holiday gift guide for hikers here.
