25 Essential Outdoorsy Gifts for Her { Your Gift Guide for Women Who Love the Outdoors }

Over the years, I’ve gotten a chance to try a lot of gear. Since REI has such a great return policy, I never feel shy about buying new gear to test outdoors. I had fun putting this list together, especially since I use most of these already and am constantly telling my friends to try them too (BUT there are a couple on my wishlist too). Here’s a gift guide for that kickass woman in your life!

1. Patagonia Tres 3-in-1 Down Parka $$$$$

This versatile jacket can be worn three ways. You can put everything on to stay warm and waterproof, just use the waterproof layer alone, or just use the down layer alone. I had a similar one in Iceland and would love a longer one like this for NYC (hinthint Jacob!)

2. Arc’teryx Cerium LT Down Hoodie $$$$$

If you’re looking for a seriously warm jacket, this is a great insulating layer. I wore this hiking during the winter in Patagonia, and it kept me really warm.

3. REI Co-op Magma 17 Sleeping Bag $$$$$

I had the older version of this sleeping bag. It’s comfortable and super light. I try to shave off every ounce on everything I carry, and if you’ve gone backpacking before, you know why.

4. Osprey Aura Backpack $$$$$

I love my Osprey packs for backpacking. Since I’m petite, the youth backpack works better for me, but if I had a taller, more womanly frame, the Aura is the one I would be using.

5. Maui Jim Ocean Polarized Sunglasses $$$$$

Since getting Maui Jim glasses, I love how their optics technology doesn’t dim everything but protects your eyes and enhances it. When I’m hiking I always have one of these to make sure my sunglasses stay on.


6. Danner Mountain 600 $$$$

I loooove these hiking boots! There hasn’t been another hiking boot so far that has fit me so well and kept me dry on hikes in the wet and rainy PNW.

7. Patagonia Rainshadow Jacket $$$$

You never know when it’s going to rain (especially if you live or are visiting the PNW). I love having this handy in my backpack because it’s lightweight and packs up small.

8. REI Co-op Flash Carbon Trekking Poles $$$$

Any serious outdoorswoman can use a great pair of trekking poles for all her adventures. I got these for our Patagonia trip, and they always are so helpful when you’re carrying a heavy load.

9. Pendleton Camp Blanket $$$$

We picked up a couple Pendleton blankets while living in Oregon, and they are made with amazing quality and super warm. Plus they always look great for photos.

10. Arc’teryx Delta LT Jacket $$$$

I’ve never owned a performance fleece like this! Some days I wore just this over a tank top while hiking during the winter in Patagonia. I was surprised how well it worked.


11. REI Co-op Flash 22 Pack $$$

This is an awesome light day pack that helps you hit the trail anytime or have a day out in the city.

12. Kammok Roo Hammock $$$

A hammock is the perfect companion for camping and hiking and it comes in many colors.

13. Manduka PROlite Yoga Mat $$$

This yoga mat is beautifully made and the lifetime guarantee makes it a gift that will be useful for a long time.

14. The North Face Hybrid Hiker Tights $$$

These tights are perfect for the outdoors! The material performs well and the zippered pocket helps ensure you don’t lose your valuables. I can’t wear tights that don’t have pockets anymore.

15. Columbia Just Right Straight Leg Pants $$$

I love the functionality of hiking pants but hate how baggy they are. I’ve found that these are way more fitted than any others I’ve tried. They also still perform well and keep up with you outdoors.


16. KAVU Goodie Travel Pouch Set $$

Keep everything organized in these cute travel pouches.

17. Hydro Flask Wide-Mouth Water Bottle $$

I love the wide mouth version of the Hydro Flask. It’s easier to drink out of and clean but still keeps your cold drinks colder and hot drinks hotter for longer.

18. Midweight Screentap Fleece Gloves $$

So far these gloves have been keeping me warm in NYC. I love that don’t restrict finger movement, and using my phone with them on has been surprisingly easier than I thought.

19. Sweet Turns Lexington Hat $$

This gift is perfect for keeping warm and cute for photos.

20. REI Co-op Lightweight Base Layer Tights $$

I always get cold so I love having base layers to give me extra warmth.


21. Darn Tough Hiker Micro Crew Socks $

I love having a variety of fun socks, but these days I also look for performance too. These are perfect for women who are active.

22. Manduka Go Move Yoga Mat Sling $

Give your yoga friend a gift they can use every time they bring their mat with them.

23. Petzl Tikkina Headlamp $

I like keeping a headlamp in my different bags. You never know when you will need them, and it’s better to be prepared.

24. Friction Labs Liquid Chalk $

I just started using liquid chalk as a base before I climb and I love it! I sweat a lot so it helps keep it dry longer. If you know someone who loves climbing, this is something they can always use.

25. Metolius Super Chalk $

I only use the liquid chalk as a base. Most of the time, I still use regular chalk and need an endless supply.

BONUS: Gift Card

If you’re shopping for a picky friend/loved one or they just seem to have everything, go practical and get them a gift card! I always prefer them over getting something I don’t need.

Which of these would you want most? What are you buying your outdoorsy friends this year?
