Outdoor adventure gifts are the best kind around. We created a list of 10 must-have recommendations for anyone that enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, or just getting outside.

As a small brand, we are always looking to include other small or local brands when it comes to our Holiday Wishlist. We have some great finds included this year and are excited to share them with you.

Give a gift that supports small brands, large brands, and gets someone outdoors this year!
