Enjoying the rugged adventure of the outdoors doesn’t mean being adverse to decadence. In fact, there are a number of luxurious items and accessories that make for the perfect Christmas gift to those who spend their time hiking or swimming in the wild. And, as more individuals begin finding themselves eager to get outdoors and with exciting activities that support their wellbeing, there is all the more reason to begin thinking of extra special Christmas gifts to support the endeavours of those closest to you.
While each outdoor activity is different, from white water rafting to tranquil paddleboarding, there are also a number of luxury gifts that will be suitable for almost every active person out there, especially those simply looking for even more of a reason to get themselves out and into nature. Here are some of our favourites.
There are a number of outdoor activities, from camping to surfing, that take place near or on water, many of which encourage people to enjoy a plunge. In colder climates and especially during winter, this can be difficult and some of them put off going outdoors altogether. This is why many outdoor activity enthusiasts are well-equipped with a wetsuit.
There are a number of wetsuits with stylish designs too, not only being manufactured with state of the art neoprene that maintains great versatility while still offering incredible comfort in low temperatures.
For those who seek to find incredible natural locations, ones that not only allow for thrilling sports but also unrivalled vistas, a camera makes for a cherished gift. And, as camera technology continues to make amazing strides and GoPro remains at the forefront.
There are now even a number of streaming models that will allow outdoor adventurers to share their progress live, which can be ideal for those wanting to support or boost their personal brand.
Paddleboarding has quickly become one of the most ubiquitous watersports across the world. As such, a greater number of individuals are encouraged and able to explore bodies of water at a relaxed pace. Giving someone the gift of a paddleboard opens up this world to them, allowing for new adventures to beaches and coves otherwise inaccessible without more cumbersome equipment.
Be sure to know the difference between solid and inflatable paddleboards and choose the one that would most suit their needs.
While many are willing to manage with an old fashioned sleeping bag, it would be difficult to refuse the luxury of a camping bed. Designs have been developed to create sleeping options for campers and adventurers that rival the comfort of a bed, without compromising any of the portability. These beds are becoming more popular and ensure a safe, comfortable sleeping environment, which is certain to be enjoyed.
High-End Cooking Gear
While there are a number of simple gadgets that can produce a good cup of coffee or a hearty meal in the wild, none will rival the satisfaction and durability of cooking with a cast-iron kettle or a raw steel pan. Such cooking items are not only enjoyed but are cherished, ultimately standing up to the years and being passed down. Few other gifts will be received with such immense gratitude.
