Gift Guide for the Outdoorsy Dad

Gift Guide for the Outdoorsy Dad

We all know the guy who can’t stand to be cooped up. He’d rather be outside, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, or rock climbing. If your dad is that guy, you’re in luck. Life is never boring with an outdoorsy dad who likes to forge his own trail wherever he goes. This Father’s Day, get him something he can enjoy in the great outdoors and you’ll make his day.

How to Choose a Gift for an Outdoorsy Dad

Choosing a gift for your outdoorsy dad isn’t easy. After all, he probably has a lot of gear that gets him to where he wants to go. In fact, your mom might say he has too much gear taking up space in the garage. Instead, think of out of the box, but practical ideas that will make treks through the great outdoors just a bit more comfortable. Gift ideas like an ultra-lightweight backpack or a travel hammock will get used so much that mom won’t be able to complain.

You could also get him something that will help him explore the outdoors in new and exciting ways, like a rock-climbing harness if he usually sticks to the trail. He’ll get excited about the new activity, and it might even spark a new passion in him. Even better, get him something you can both use, such as a multi-person tent, and offer to hit the great outdoors with him for the weekend. He’ll love the one-on-one time with you, while spending time doing what he loves best. Plus, he’ll be able to use the gift for many years to come.
