If you are an outdoorsy person, this is the time of year was made for you! When the snow starts falling, the only thing you can think of is getting outside, and doing some skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, or camping if you’re really daring.

Here are 8 things you’re going to want to gift yourself this holiday season instead of giving them to someone who doesn’t appreciate the need for a life straw.

1. Outdoor Parachute Nylon Hammock

If you’ve never had the experience of sleeping in a hammock, you are missing out. It’s so comfortable! Plus, it’s something you can easily pack up and doesn’t take as much space as an air mattress. This Parachute Nylon Hammock even includes a storage bag, so you won’t be searching for anything while you are suspended in the trees. Use it with the hanging kit for best use.

2. Scree Gaiter

Gaiters are great! They help keep rocks out of your shoes in the summer and keep snow out of your shoes in the winter. They are an essential for anyone looking to be off this path this season. When your feet are dry at the end of the day you’ll have these Gaiters to thank!

3. Outdoor Blanket

An Outdoors blanket is something that might be overlooked, but when you are camping and end up cold in your tent, you’ll wish you had one of these. With Cloudlift insulation technology, this Outdoor Blanket is sure to keep you warm on the coldest nights of the year.


4. Snowshoes

Snow is finally on the ground, and this year instead of spending every weekend skiing or snowboarding, why not try snowshoeing? Plus, Showshoeing means you don’t have to stop hiking or running in the winter. These durable and long lasting Snowshoes are what any outdoorsy person needs this holiday season.

5. Trekking Poles

Trekking poles are the perfect compliment to those snowshoes you just had to have. And these Trekking Poles are great for hiking in places like the national parks this winter. Or just hiking in your backyard. Wherever you decide to hike this winter, be sure to take a pair of these along with you.

6. Emergency Winter Kit

An emergency winter kit is one of the biggest necessities this season. This Emergency Winter Kit includes things like hand warmers, a window scraper, and a first aid kit. Hopefully, you’ll never have to use it, but you’ll have it if you ever do.

7. Propane Stove

If you plan on camping at all this winter, a propane stove is an absolute must especially if you are doing any kind of hunting or fishing in the process. This Propane Stove is an awesome, small, and easy to use source for anything you need to have cooked when you are on your outdoor adventures.

8. Steel LifeStraw

LifeStraws are essential every time you are out in the wilderness. This water filter allows you to be able to drink any source of water no matter what bad bacteria might be in it. This is the LifeStraw Steel, the updated version of the original life straw. Get this one when you need durability for your adventures, and drink any water source without the risk of a disease like giardia.
