5 Amazing Gifts For Hikers This Xmas!

With the holidays now firmly upon us, we thought it was time to put together a list of great gifts for hikers – so you can show the special hikers and campers in your life that you care! Let’s take a look at our top picks:

Remember: If you’re buying from Ali Express brands like Aegismax or Naturehike, then sometimes the shipping can take a little while. So if you are shopping for someone for Christmas, we’d recommend buying early to make sure it will get to you on time.

#1: Pocket Sized Mini Portable Campfire Bellows

Whoever came up with this is a genius!

These portable camping bellows definitely fall into the ‘Why didn’t I think of that!’ category. The telescopically extendable pole allows you to supply your campfire with precious oxygen from a safe distance! This set from Cruinne weighs only 29 grams / 1.76 ounces! With a 304 stainless steel construction, this set of bellows should help you stay warm on the trail for years to come. 

#2: Aegismax Down Slipper Boots

Gifts For Hikers #2: Aegismax Down Slipper Booties
Warm feet will be a must this holiday season!

“I just love having cold feet!” – said no-one, ever! These Aegismax Down Slipper Boots come at a very reasonable price and feature 90% white duck down, for keeping feet extra toasty out on the trail. Weighing only 75 grams (2.64 ounces), these slippers mean you don’t have to sacrifice when it comes to weight and warmth – you can have both. The best part about getting these for the special hiker in your life is that you can even slip them on for Christmas day!

#3: Aegismax Down Hood

Head and toes… covered!

Need a hood to go with those slipper boots? Luckily, Aegismax has you covered there as well. Weighing the same as the slippers at 75 grams / 2.64 ounces, you’re sure to keep toasty warm if you go for the complete set. Just remember to get matching colors!

#4: Merino Wool Buff

Gifts For Hikers #4: Merino Wool Buff
We love a good Buff!

Multi-purpose? Check. Lightweight? Check. Low price? Check. The humble Buff has a lot to offer every hiker on the trail. This Merino Wool version is quick-drying, breathable, and weighs in at just 54 grams / 1.9 ounces. Mega thrifty points here.

#5: Naturehike Packable Waterproof Backpack 

Gifts For Hikers #5: Naturehike Packable Waterproof Backpack
This packable backpack is a must have for any hiker!

This foldable backpack from Naturehike is the perfect ‘grab it and go’ backpack for shorter hikes, but also serves equally well as a day pack on a longer trip. Weighing in at just 120 grams (4.23 ounces) for the 18-liter version, and with a pack size that fits in your palm, you’ll barely notice it’s there. We even covered it in our best hiking day packs series, so it gets two thumbs up from us!

Anything we missed!?
