If there’s an outdoorsy woman in your life—the type that would rather hit the trail than the nail salon or jump in an alpine lake instead of lay on the beach at a resort—then this outdoor gift guide is for you!
As an outdoors loving gal myself, I’ve put this list together to help you find the perfect gift that she will be excited to receive. This gift guide everything from stylish-yet-functional outdoor clothing, hiking gear, camping equipment, road trip essentials, gadgets and games.

Bandanas are one of those items that come in handy in SO many ways in the outdoors. We love the rugged yet feminine design of this bandana and that United By Blue removes a pound of trash from the oceans for every product sold.
If you’re wondering “Does she really need another pair of leggings?” let me tell you, the answer is probably yes! The Becksa leggings from are prAna are perfect for everything from yoga to hiking, offer UPF 50+ sun protection, and are Fair Trade Certified.
I hate having cold feet while we’re camping (or any time!), which is why a pair of slippers with sturdy soles are a must at the campsite. Michael bought me a pair of these Old Friend slippers for our first Valentine’s Day nearly 8 years ago and they are still going strong!
The Aeropress Travel Press is an ideal gift for a coffee lover on the go! Aeropress took it’s classic coffee maker design and remade it to fit into a compact, travel/hiking/camping friendly package—it all fits together into a cup with a lid (that also stores the filters!).

Help keep her feet happy with a pair of wool hiking socks! There are a ton of options, but FITS and Darn Tough(pictured) are our recommended brands. FITS are the most comfortable, but Darn Tough has an awesome lifetime guarantee (and yes, we’ve tested it out a few times!)
For women who enjoy woodsy and earthy scents over the flowery or fruity, Juniper Ridge bath products will be a welcomed change of pace. With body wash scents like Redwood Mist, Coastal Pine, and Desert Cedar, you can treat her to a relaxing bath experience that matches her favorite landscape.
This durable, water resistant Patagonia daypack is perfect for women who enjoy hiking! The main compartment has a large, U-shaped zipper to make it easy to find what’s packed inside, a structured frame helps carry the load, and the mesh back panel helps wick sweat and helps with breathability.
The Nomadix quick drying towels are great to have on camping trips, or to roll up and carry on a hike in case there is a lake to jump into! We love that these towels are made of recycled water bottles, and they come in a bunch of fun National Parks designs.
Insulated Wine Glasses
This is a fun gift for the wine (or cocktail!) lover. These insulated wine glasses will keep her drink cold, and are non-breakable, so they are great for tossing into a backpack or camping gear box. Yeti and Hydro Flask both make great options, and Hydro Flask also makes an insulated wine bottle to complete the set.
Polarized sunglasses are a must for anyone who spends a lot of time in the sun. These Sunski polarized sunglasses made from recycled plastic are stylish, durable, and backed by a lifetime warranty so she’ll never have to worry about bringing them on any adventure!

Long days playing outside can leave skin feeling wrecked, so Ursa Major’s natural, plant-based skin products would be a welcomed gift to any outdoorsy gal! Their Golden Hour Recovery Cream is great for rehydrating dry skin, or their 4-1 Essential Face Wipes(pictured) are perfect for stashing in daypacks or gym bags for a face refresh after a hike or bike ride.
Vouri’s Clementine shorts are my personal favorites for hiking, running, and water sports because they are lightweight and super quick to dry. They also come in a longer, 4” inseam size. These would be a great addition to any outdoorsy woman’s closet.
This rechargeable hand warmer is a great item to have for hikes, camping, or winter adventures. It provides up to 9 hours of warmth for cold hands and doubles as a portable battery bank for small electronics like phones.
Give her the gift of relaxation with this Kammok Roo Hammock! Who wouldn’t love a place to kick up her feet with a book or a good podcast? This is perfect to take camping, or just string up in the backyard.
The Barebones Forest Lantern is a classy take on a vintage camp lantern–with modern upgrades like being USB-rechargeable. It’s super functional while also adding a hip factor to the campsite (we used these at our wedding and loved them!).
I didn’t even know this was missing from my camping gear until researching this gift guide! This heated sleeping bag liner claims to add 20F to your sleeping bag and heats via 12v or USB battery. I haven’t tried it personally, but it seems like a cozy idea for women who enjoy camping but sleep on the cold side.
