I love recommending gifts to people! It’s like a fun little riddle, thinking of what a person with a certain set of tastes and interests would enjoy. All of these are things she will actually use hiking, and if not–they are things she deserves for being such a good outdoorsy girl.
This is part of my Christmas Gift Guides for Outdoorsy Women Series, so check out the other posts in this category as well.
Columbia Trail Leggings
Leggings are popular on the trial, and when I’m not in my Prana Halle pants (below) I can usually be found in something like this.
Fitbit Charge Activity Tracker
A Day Pack
My two recommendations:
Osprey Daylite Pack, Amazon.com (Has a hydration reservoir spot)
If you get her the Daylite pack you might want to consider getting her a Camelbak water reservoir.
I have to pee just looking at this, but it is seriously helpful on the trail. With a normal water bottle you don’t have to stop, take off your pack, get out the bottle, etc but with a Camelbak, you just pop the end of the hose in your mouth and keep on going.
Prana Halle Hiking Pant
These are my absolute favorite hiking pants on earth. So comfortable and flattering.
Etsy Mountains Are Calling Shirt
This is so cute!
Hike More Worry Less Sweatshirt
YETI Rambler Bottle with a Texas-shaped Home Custom Decal
If she loves hiking, chances are she would love nice photos of the places she goes. I have a Nikon D3300 but have listed a few options for improving her photo game here.
A D3300 is an investment but it is worth every penny for its photo quality.
Tamron Wide Angle Lens
Canon Powershot SX410
Aukey iPhone Wide Angle Lens Clip
Marmot Precip Rain Jacket
Alternate Option: Arcteryx Zeta LT Jacket, Amazon.com (<–excellent quality and very pro looking)
Salomon Women’s X Ultra Prime Hiking Shoe
Prana La Viva Trucker Hat
DeLorme InReach Satellite Messenger
If you love her, you probably worry about her going out alone and something happening to her, right? (Have you seen 127 Hours?!) This gadget allows her to send texts or emails with GPS coordinates and trigger an SOS if needed.
- A less expensive option: SPOT 3 Satellite Messenger, Amazon.com This one does not have text capability.
Texas State Parks Pass / National Parks Pass
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
This is one of my favorite books! Read my review.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
Another book about hiking. I have a love hate relationship with this book but its one any woman hiker should read. Lots of relatable moments in there.
Read my review here.
That’s all for now. Good luck shopping and Merry Christmas!
