101+ Gifts for Hikers: Unique Gifts for Any Budget [2020 Guide]
It’s hard to buy gifts for hikers and backpackers. I get it.
We’re a gear-hungry bunch who spends an obscene amount of time searching for products that’ll take our trail game to the next level. Finding unique gifts for us hikers can get overwhelming because we don’t just want good gear, we want the best gear.
But don’t stress out, because I’m a trail chasing, mountain climbing, ultralight backpacking gear junkie and I’m here to help.
This hiking gift guide — updated for 2020 — is split up into five easy to navigate sections, each with its own price range. Products towards the beginning of this list are generally more affordable and the ones towards the end, well, they’re a bit more pricy.
So stay tuned, and I’ll help you find the perfect gift for that beloved hiking or backpacking fanatic in your life. If you have questions about anything on this list, leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible (with my best gear nerd answers).
Minimalist Water Filter
Water purification is essential in the backcountry, so the Sawyer Squeeze is a perfect gift for any backpacker looking to filter water on their trip. The Squeeze weighs just over two ounces, is extremely packable, and is rated to filter over 100,000 gallons of water.
