Outdoor Christmas Gift Ideas for Adventuring Folk


Gifts For Little Explorers

1. Kids Bart Tec Mittens £24.99

My kids are out in the snow for over 100 days of the year. That’s a lot of glove use! We swear by Barts Tec Mittens for keeping their hands warm and toasty on the slopes or for frolicking around in the snow. These gloves never fail with their high cuffs, pure cosiness, durability and most importantly 100% waterproofness. Don’t even bother buying inferior gloves – buy once, buy quality.

2. The Original Den Kit, £40

The perfect present for outdoor kids. This fab old school haversack bag is packed full of everything a young adventurer needs to go to ground. (includes camo tarp, ground sheet, pegs, rope, mallet, face paint and enamel mug).

Guaranteed to get kids where they should be – off screens and enjoying the simple O U T D O O R S.

3. Stance Snow Socks, Girls £11.99

We are big fans of Stance socks – arguably the comfiest and definitely the coolest snow socks on the market. I love these tropical Tulum Snow girls socks – the perfect stocking filler for little rippers.

Gifts For Aventure Mums

4. PACMAT Family XL Picnic Blanket £39.99

Picnic mats just got technical! One for the whole family (rather than just Mum) this picnic blanket by Rubbastuff is a world away from traditional, heavy, unpractical picnic mats. Simple but seriously effective this revolutionary picnic blanket boasts a rip stop waterproof nylon base layer, teamed with a soft technical microfibre top layer. Whether your crew is heading to the beach, forest or snow, this compact, durable and ridiculously lightweight mat will make your adventure stops so much better!

5. The Girl Outdoors book

‘Do one thing every day that scares you’ said Eleanor Roosevelt. If you’ve always wanted to push your boundaries and try something new – arm yourself with a copy of this book. This wild girl’s guide to adventure, travel and wellbeing is packed full of outdoor sports & wilderness inspiration from trail blazing outdoors journalist Sian Lewis. Guaranteed to kickstart your partner (sister, girlfriend, wife) to get out there and try something new and adventurous.

6. Moleskine notebook with mountain design £40.00

If, like me, you’re slightly obsessed with all things ‘montagne’ be sure to bag one of these gorgeous limited edition moleskine notebooks by the talented RP Roberts (of Jones’ Snowboard graphics fame!). These hard backed, unlined notebooks are the perfect travel companion to jot down inspiration whilst on the go.

7. YY Plasfun Belay Glasses

Keen climber? Time to get serious (and look the part) at your indoor climbing wall. Give your neck a rest with these uber practical belay glasses. Once you’ve tried them, you won’t care that you look a bit kooky sporting them!

8. Regatta Outdoors Walking Trousers £39.99

You can’t beat chilly winter walks or blustery beach strolls during the Winter to banish the blues. Wrap up warm this Winter with these all season women’s hiking trousers – the perfect cold weather hiking strides designed to keep you snug, dry and warm.

9. Love Inc. Billy Morgan Snowboard Mitt £70.00

The search for the perfect snowboard mitt is over. These fully insulated and waterproof 100% leather snowboard mitts are the ultimate gloves to beat the cold freeriding or jibbing this winter. Designed by someone in the know, pro rider Billy Morgan, you can expect high performance in functionality, durability and comfort. 

10. Mizu aluminium water bottle £45.00

Probably my favourite ever water bottle. We’re on a quest here at The Family Freestylers to encourage everyone to go single plastic free. Step one is having your own personal water bottle that sticks to you like glue. This Mizu aluminium water bottle, by RP Roberts, is the perfect companion for mountain folk. 

11. Patagonia Mens Descensionist Jacket £378.00

The new splitboarding jacket from Patagonia has exploded onto the scene this winter. Designed specifically for ski touring and splitboarding, the use of nylon translates into a lightweight jacket that moves with the body with total ease – hugely important when going uphill. With optimum breathability, new nifty powder skirt cinching, and a pocket just for goggles, this jacket is going to seriously look after you on your backcountry adventures this winter. The womens descensionist jacket is definitely on my Christmas List!

12. The Adventurer’s Guide to Britain

“You can’t get a cup of tea or book long enough to suit me” said C S Lewis. This is especially true for this book – The Adventurer’s Guide to Britain. A fantastic collection of outdoor adventure inspiration from all corners of Britain. If you’re looking for new challenges for 2019, work your way through this book and tick off wild swims, ridgeline runs, challenging scrambles, island paddles and much more. Highly recommended!
