Outdoorsy Girls will love these tops!
Check out blackpearlmaker for a variety of casual, trendy tops. Every outdoorsy girl needs a few comfie and casual shirts to throw on before heading out… and it’s a bonus if they’re stylish too!
There’s something really appealing about this outdoorsy shirt. It’s perfect for casual days around home or for outdoor adventures. She can wear her attitude with pride!
This sweatshirt looks great, doesn’t it? It looks so soft, comfy, and flirty. This forest sweatshirt is also a mix of organic cotton and recycled poly and rayon – the perfect gift for the eco-conscious outdoorsy girl!
Gift a Great Outdoorsy Book
An Amazon Bestseller, this book is changing the way we look at and experience the outdoors. It teaches the importance of noticing the language of the natural world so that we can understand more intimately what is happening around us. I’m only into the 2nd chapter, but I’m really enjoying it!
Here are a few other best sellers and popular books that Outdoorsy Gals might enjoy:
Jewelry for the nature-lover
Sometimes the outdoorsy woman isn’t a big fan of delicate or fancy jewelry. This handmade bracelet is nice in that the leather and copper give it a more natural and rustic feel while still being a pretty accessory.
Aren’t these sweet little earrings? These origami golden foxes can be worn with style to the office and on the trail!
What about this lovely little necklace. It’s small but helps keep those mountains close to her heart. And as a bonus, they’ll package these up in a lovely little box perfect for giving.
Simply beautiful. She can bring a little bit of the outdoors everywhere she goes. SearsBeach has put a variety of natural elements into these rings: leaves, seeds, petals, stones, and more.
A few random gifts for the outdoorsy girl
They can keep out that early morning sun when sleeping in the camper or tent with a handmade woodland sleep mask. Three Schatze has a huge variety of masks if woodland isn’t her style, there’s one she’s sure to love.
Who doesn’t use cups? Probably no one. Enamel mugs make perfect gifts for adventurers because they’re pretty enough for the kitchen and hardy enough for the woods. A good camping mug can go right onto a fire, is lightweight, and won’t break if you drop it, and is cute too!
Do you know an outdoorsy girl that likes to journal her adventures? This notebook has mostly blank pages and would be a cute way for her to keep track of her hikes and nature observations. The makers of these books are using 95% sugarcane paper as a way to support sustainable living.
Do you know someone who loves to track their travels? This map is foam mounted and ready for pins to mark the spot. World Vibe Studio also has some beautiful maps of the long distance hikes, popular peeks, and ski hills.
Help her keep her head warm and look stylish doing it! WheatfieldKnitwear has a bunch of fabulous hand-knitted accessories all in earthy tones and a casual style.
This Etsy shop has so many cute and whimsical designs. There’s almost something for everyone! I even bought myself one of their note pads years ago because I just loved their sweet illustrations.
The Practical Gifts
These smartwool tops are super practical! Merino wool helps wick moisture away from the skin helping the wearer stay dry. They’re great for keeping warm under clothes and lots of girls wear them hiking since Merino wool is supposed to repel that awful stink you get after a few days on the trail!
You can also find Merino Wool or SmartWool Brand on Amazon and probably in most sport retailers.
This is the bestselling active-wear top on Amazon. So that should speak for itself!
This is a buff (a neck gaiter, a really big sleeve for your head). It is a very versatile and handy piece of outdoor gear. And, the Buff brand has tonnes of style options! You can get solid colors, patterns, floral, stripe, camouflage, everything. I’ve even seen Buffs with maps or pictures printed on them!
Why is the buff fantastic? Maybe if I were outdoors in a hot climate I wouldn’t use mine so much. But, here, I always wear mine out when hiking and camping. If it’s windy I can put it over my ears and keep the hair out of my face. If it’s cool, I can wrap it up over my head. In the winter I wear it over my mouth and face to protect against the cold. And, if I’ve been on the trail for too long, I wear it over my hair to cover up the dirty greasy mess up there!
You can find this grey patterned buff on Amazon, but pretty much any outdoor store will have them. Moosejaw has a wide assortment of Buffs and neck gaiters as well. Moosejaw also has a neck gaiter available in Smart Wool which would be a warmer option.
A water bottle might not seem like a very special gift, but it’s very practical! This Nalgene is also very widely used by most outdoorsy folk. You’ll find them in any outdoor store. Why is the Nalgene so liked? It’s strong. The lid is attached. There are measurements on the side. You can see what’s inside. It holds a lot of water. They’re BPA free. And, Nalgene also makes water filters that attach to these bottles.
Everyone needs socks, right? And, there’s no better feeling than pulling on a brand new pair of quality socks! These SmartWool socks are pretty popular and I’m enjoying my pair. You will need to have an idea of her shoe size, however, before you can gift someone a pair of running, hiking, or skiing socks. Again, any outdoor store will have a wide selection of styles to choose from.
Some gear suggestions
Gifting hiking and camping gear is a hard one. Sometimes people have very strong preferences for size, weight, purpose, style and so forth. However, below are a few items that are pretty widely appreciated by everyone.
Perfect for keeping track of activity levels, getting motivated, and doing it with a cute and colorful wristband too. Fitbits are very popular so you might want to check that your gift receiver doesn’t already have one of these.
This might be a particularly handy gift for moms. Heading outdoors with kids is so much easier if there’s a dry, clean spot for snacks, cuddles, and diaper changes. But even without kids, having a small, portable blanket is still a handy item for outdoor festival goers, sports fields, family picnics, nature journaling, and the beach.
Headlamps are so handy. Hikers, climbers, campers, runners, cross country skiers, star gazers, and night owl readers will all appreciate a good headlamp. This one also has a red light which is better for retaining your night vision.
All outdoor adventurers will appreciate opening and enjoying a hot drink after hours on the snowy trails. A good quality hot beverage container can keep beverages hot for up to 6 hours. The Hydro Flask’s flip lid is comfortable to drink from, but it is not leak proof.
We love our hydroflasks! We’ve been bringing them to the ski hill and the hot chocolate is still warm after being in our backpacks outside all morning. The flip top is very secure but you can also get a screw-top if you were concerned about it leaking.
However, these aren’t the only good thermoses out there! Here are a few other options:
- Thermos Stainless Steel, 16 oz
- The classic Stanley (Pale Green) Vacuum Bottle
- Hydroflask 32oz Tumbler
And a Paddle Board
Okay, so you needed one really big and cool gift idea for the outdoorsy girl. This inflatable paddle board seems to have the most reviews online and I personally like that it is completely portable. Paddle boarding is becoming very popular and if she doesn’t already have one, would she want one? Do you?
When you just can’t decide, or would rather some one else do the shopping…
Often times you can purchase just one box as a gift, or a set number of boxes to be delivered monthly. These are all great value and the makers of these boxes insure that these boxes are filled with only the best of the best.
