As you might be able to tell, our family absolutely loves to hike. LOVES it. Over the last few years, our friends and extended family have all learned this about us and have actually started personalizing the gifts they give us around that. Heck, I give my husband and children hiking gifts often. 

If you are looking for gifts for people who love to hike, here is a list of some of our favorites. Everything I have listed here are gifts that we have either given or received and they were all hits. No more stressing on what to give to your friends and family who love to hit the trails.

Hiking Pack

Hiking packs are a must have for any hiking trip. Hiking packs allow you to carry around the necessities you need when you are hiking in nature. What are those necessities? Well, here is short list of things that you will often find in a hiking pack:

  • Water bottle w/water
  • First Aid Kit
  • Layering Clothes (in case the weather surprises you)
  • Navigation Tools
  • Food (granola, nuts, trail mix, etc)
  • Flashlight
  • Sunglasses

Water Bottle

I really like Hydroflask water bottles because they are great for keeping water cold. There are multiple sizes of Hydroflasks available. With my family, other than the youngest, we all carry 32 ounce bottles with us. They are easy to slip into your hiking pack and I know that I’ll have cold water for the entire trip.

Everyone loves new sunglasses, right? Sunglasses are imperative to have on a hiking trip to protect the hiker’s eyes so they make wonderful gifts for hikers. 

First Aid Kit

First aid kits are imperative for any outdoor adventure, but many of us slack on updated ours when parts of them are used. That’s one of the many reasons that hikers love getting new first aid kits for gifts. 


You never know when emergencies may happen. In the case that a hiker runs out of water, it isn’t safe for them to drink river, lake or stream water. Lifestraws make great gifts because they can quite possibly save a life. 

Trekking Poles

Trekking poles are great for hiking on trails that are rocky or uneven. They can help to prevent falls and injuries. 

Atomic Bear Paracord Bracelet

This paracord bracelet holds a compass, fire starter, emergency whistle, ferro rod striker and 12 feet of military-grade paracord.

Rechargeable Headlamp

Flashlights, headlamps and other light sources are important tools for hikers. It’s important for a hiker to be able to see if they are stuck out on the trail in the dark. 

Bear Spray

If the hiker in your life likes to hike in an area where there are bears and other wildlife, bear spray is an important thing for them to have. 

Wool Hiking Socks

Socks are always a great gift idea and wool socks like these are great for hiking, so naturally they make a great gift for the hiker in your life.
