Best Outdoorsy Gifts For Women Under $30
Let’s start this list with basic items which will bring a little bit of those home comforts to the outdoors.
Whether it’s hiking a new trail, sitting around the campfire or cozying up in a tent, these meaningful gifts will transform an outdoor living space into a home away from home.
1. Go Everyday Tumbler
This 10oz tumbler is the perfect solution for morning coffee and/or happy hours drinks. The double-wall vacuum insultation keeps beverages hot for 1.5 hours or cold for 5 hours. As an added bonus, Stanley also offers a lifetime warranty on all their products.
Buffs are one of the most versatile pieces of gear we own. They can be worn so many different ways and are the best kept secret for sun protection. We like CoolNet UV+ because their products are made out of 95% recycled polyester and are available in several different colors.
3. Pom Beanie
Kristen never travels anywhere with out her Pom Beanie and owns several different ones. This beanie features a slouchy fit and has full coverage of both ears. The best part is that they are available in many colors so you have tons of choice for your outdoorsy friend, partner or loved one!
4. REI Membership
Becoming a member of the REI community means sharing passions with others who love the outdoors while also scoring great deals on expensive gear. A membership will give you an automatic 10% off every purchase and access to the used gear trade-in program.
5. Hiking Socks
We have two favorite brands of hiking socks both made from the best material for hiking, Merino wool. Smartwool is a lighter thinner sock better for everyday use. Darn Tough socks have a much higher density and are more absorbent. Depending on your outdoorsy women’s activity, one brand might be better suitable for her.
6. Women Who Hike
Give the gift of inspiration with this book, Women Who Hike. This story follows the adventure of over 20 women as they overcome challenges on their favorite hikes. GPS coordinates and photos are included for each hike discussed. Don’t miss the kindle edition, if your outdoorsy friend prefers books straight at her fingertips.
7. Weatherproof Journal
Rite in the Rain with this waterproof journal (pun intended)! This all weather paper will repel water, sweat, grease and mud. We like the spiral notebook version which keeps our notebook tough and flexible. It’s extremely durable so it doesn’t get bent out of shape when tossed around outside.
8. Shower Steamers
These aromatherapy shower melts will dissolve and release essential oils into your shower or bath to aid in deep relaxation. Spoil your outdoorsy woman with the gift of tranquility after her outdoor adventures.
10. Patagonia Black Hole Cube
This small organizer is a great additional to any women’s outdoor gear arsenal. We use ours to store personal items and toiletries. The easy open compartment on the top gives us quick access for grabbing items on the go. These are available in many colors and sizes (shown here is the 3L cube).
11. Portable Campfire
This has been one of the best gifts we ever received because it is so convenient! The portable campfire weights only 4 lbs. and is completely hassle-free. Bring it to the beach, on a picnic or even glamping. Radiate lights just like a candle and lasts for 3 hours. We love the eco-friendly factor being that it’s made from recycled soy wax and paper briquettes.
13. A Cute T-Shirt
Are the mountain always calling your loved one? Then give the gift of a cute t-shirt with one of the nations most memorable National Parks, Yosemite. This shirt is made from a combination of supima cotton and modal to give her comfort and offers twice the strength of regular cotton.

14. Patagonia Better Sweater Gloves
What is better than the gift of warmth? This fabulous gift is a hybrid between a glove and mitten so you get the best of both worlds. These gloves are perfect for outdoorsy women because they will keep her hands warm like mittens but allow her to expose her fingers when needed in the elements.
15. Columbia Hiking Boots
These lightweight Columbia hiking boots are Kristen’s go to boots for the trails! She’s worn them on both day hikes and multi day hikes. We love the mountain red/elk color but you can choose from many other options. Your outdoorsy friend will be sure to get some compliments on these boots!
16. Merrell Hiking Shoe
Hiking shoes are a good option for travelers because they are smaller and lighter. They also offer more breathability meaning your feet will stay drier. These Merrell’s offer great traction and are meant for well established less rugged paths.

These ultralight weight breathable shorts are perfect for lounging around the campfire or tackling that mountain. The four-way stretch bikini liner will be able to handle any active opportunity and also provides a zip pocket for small items if needed.

This is one of Kristen’s favorite hiking items. It’s perfect for layering with a long or short sleeve base layer for those chilling mornings or nights. This fleece traps heat against your body to make you feel incredibly warm while also wicking away any moisture to ensure you retain all that extra heat.
19. Fujifilm Instax Mini
If you’re looking for a timeless photography gift suitable for all levels – look no further than this Fujifilm Instax instant camera. Roll back the years and print instantly as you snap away for a classic take on photography. We always take ours for those truly iconic landmarks around the world.
20. Merino Wool Base Layer Top
Base layers are arguably the most important part of your outdoor gear arsenal. Merino wool is the perfect material to sit against your skin because it traps your body heat in air pockets around your body to help keep you warm. A base layer is the perfect gift to keep your loved one warm.
21. Hiking Leggings
A proper pair of leggings should be found in every women’s hiking wardrobe. These are Kristen’s go to option for almost every hike. Leggings wick sweat away from the skin, prevent chaffing and minimize leg restriction. They also provide great protection from the sun or warmth on a cool autumn day.

As coffee lovers we couldn’t resist with this one. Stanley’s vacuum insulation keeps beverages hot for at least 4 hours so there is plenty of time until you are ready to pour that first cup. This coffee press is also easy to clean and is dishwasher safe for when you get back home. Plus a lifetime warranty is a bargain for any Stanley product!

If you haven’t already noticed, we are huge fans of Patagonia. But after trying several other brands, we found their products to truly live up to expectations.

Never skimp on a backpack! This is one of the most important pieces of outdoor gear besides your clothes.
