1. A water filtration straw that'll lighten their water load on remote trips without weighing down their pack. Plus, it's more or less a magic trick.
2. A 3-in-1 photo lens kit to help capture the great sights they go off the beaten path to witness with their own eyes. And then of course they can email them to you and make you jealous. (It always works!)
4. And a pack of glow-in-the-dark playing cards in case they don't want to use up their phone battery to pass the nighttime with Go Fish.
5. A book about nature so next time they're taking a stroll through the woods they can learn about how the clouds, stars, tree roots, and even a butterfly can be natural cues!
6. A fishing caddy as an all-in-one helper for their next fishing trip. It has a padded seat, waterproof light for night fishing, and holders for drinks and fishing poles.
7. A good pair of folding waterproof binoculars so they can better spot wildlife (like whales emerging from icy depths, mountain goats balancing on ledges, and buffalo traveling in packs).
8. Bag Balm — farmers have used it for more than a century to help soothe cattle's chapped skin, but it can also be a great addition to a human skincare routine!
9. A Grand Canyon–loving shirt for anyone who loves them a national park (it me) and wants to keep the parks beautiful.
10. And a coordinating Yellowstone candle that, no, does not smell like a geyser in case you're wondering. Instead, it smells like fresh air, green melon, and morning dew drops. I can feel that fresh air in my lungs already.
12. An outdoorsy subscription box — it could be perfect for people who're always posting beautiful Instas like this, but also *really* enjoy spending time outdoors and know good gear when they meet it.
13. A picturesque calendar from the ~official~ charity of America's National Parks to grace their walls when they're forced to be indoors.
14. A copy of the Ken Burns national parks doc. It just may spur them to book up another outdoorsy vacay.
15. A lightweight (but durable!) wallet made of weather-resistant material that'll get 'em through allll kinds of adventures their leather wallet wishes it could.
16. Espadrille water shoes made of neoprene they'll want to wear even when they're land-locked with a 0% forecast of precipitation.
17. And a neoprene waterproof pouch (from the same brand) where they can stash their phone and other essentials that need to stay dry.
18. A lightweight backpacking hammock built for two — complete with everything they'll need for setup.
20. A 20" snow thrower for doing the difficult job of clearing a pathway because maybe you won't be in town the next time they get a couple feet. (Pssst, this would make a great group gift!)
21. A duck call–crafting kit anyone who'd rather craft their own outdoor gear will wanna carve into.
22. A cord cap with serious vintage style that'll give them an in to talk about their trip to the enormous peak. Seriously, it's huuuuge.
23. A kayak patent print as a solid step up from that faded glossy poster of The Colorado River they bought ages ago.
25. An airtight backpack sure to make several appearances on their Insta feed because it looks that dang good and will become the go-to for all kinds of outdoor adventures.
26. Or a lightweight water-resistant backpack they can use as a backup in case of ~outdoorsy~ emergencies.

37. A pocket-size travel blanket with built-in ground stakes for when they see a view worth sitting down for a spell to admire.
39. A double sleeping bag for the couple who's *always* camping. Always! And if they get in a fight, it converts to TWO sleeping bags.
41. A hunting knife set that'll help them field dress big game. Y'know, the stuff you're going to be hearing about for MONTHS.
42. A butterfly puddler that'll still look adorable during wintry weather and attract all kinds of winged beauts to their garden during warmer temps.
43. A 10-pack of telescoping roasting sticks so everyone can get their marshmallows just how they like them without getting too close to the campfire.
45. A beekeeping guide because they've been talking about starting it as a hobby for awhile and maybe this'll be a push in the right direction.
47. And a window-mount bird feeder to help everyone *safely* get up close and personal with the neighborhood songbirds.
48. A wild game cookbook from the host of the TV show MeatEater that'd be ever so helpful for hunters and fishers.
