Finding the perfect gift for someone who likes to go outdoors and pursue adventurous hobbies can be an adventure in and of itself. How do you get them something you know they'll really enjoy with such an active lifestyle? A book or a video game just might not cut it. Here are five gift ideas for the outdoorsman -- or outdoorswoman -- in your life.
1. Medical Kit
No matter where they travel, they'll want to be stocked with medical supplies. The best thing about this gift is that even if they have one already, they never know when they'll need to replenish it.
A hammock is a wonderful, restful way to enjoy the outdoors. Consider getting a double hammock for a married friend so they can relax comfortably side by side with their significant other.
A brand new wakeboard is a great gift for someone who loves water sports. WakeEssentials makes some of the best ones around, whether your adventurer friend is new to wakeboarding or an old pro.
4. Utility Knife
If you want to splurge on a really nice utility knife, we highly recommend the KA-BAR, designed for the U.S. Marines. Survivalists and outdoor adventure seekers swear by it.
5. Water Purifier
With a water purifier, your adventurer doesn't have to carry as much water with them on long outdoor trips. Just fill up at a river or lake, stick the device into the water bottle, and let it remove toxins and diseases.
