The Christmas season is one of the most special times of year! It’s a time to make more smiles, enjoy more laughs, and offer more kindness. The reason for the season is the joy of giving! It is also time to reflect on the wonderful past memories you hold and also to create new ones. The holidays can be an extraordinary time for opportunities to demonstrate acts of kindness, to help those in need, or just to simply remember the special people in your life. This is why I put together some ideas of great gifts for adventure and travel lovers alike!

Handmade Ornament

Nothing says I love you more than a handmade ornament! In my opinion, anything that is handmade can make a very special gift! This is an ornament I made for my parents during my childhood.Although not fancy and extravagant, this ornament comes with some amazing memories! I still have it today and hang it on my Christmas tree, almost 40 years later.

Handmade Tree Skirt

This is one special gift that I hold dear to my heart! My mother in law made this hand sewn gently and beautifully pieced together skirt for my tree. Notice all the design details and the tiny sparkle pieces sewn throughout the skirt. I can only imagine all the work she put into this gift!

  1. Lisa at Following the Rivera

    These are some lovely adventurous gift ideas! I like the Osprey backpack; my brother could do with one!

    1. Thank you Lisa! We love our Osprey backpacks! One reason is it doesn’t pull at your shoulders because of the features of the support at the bottom around the hips! Internal water reservoir, tool loops, zipper pockets,.. its great! Thanks for reading!!

  2. I’m also big fan of Salomon hiking shoes! It’s actually the only brand of shoe that I wear. And also love REI’s very forgiving returns policy

    1. Oh yes, I love my Salomons! The grip is incredible, which I needed for that hike climbing up Half Dome- very slippery granite rock! Thanks for reading and all your support Steven!!

  3. Nice list! Especially the Pro Shot case, and that’s great they are donating part of the earning!

    1. Thank you! I really think Pro Shot Case is an extra special item,.. because so many people are using their I-phones now for photography, then to be able to use it underwater.. wow! I really appreciate your support, thank you again for commenting!

  4. There are some brilliant suggestions here. I can vouch for the Osprey backpack, I love mine.

  5. Great gift ideas, Shannon! A new pair of hiking shoes sounds like a gift I need at the moment!

    1. Thanks so much Becky! Yes! I am sure you can use them because of all that gorgeous hiking you do in those beautiful places like Hong Kong and others! I also have an awesome pair of Columbia waterproof hike shoes too, that I love!!

  6. Love the diverse choices!

    1. Thanks very much! I know, I basically wanted to share some of the special things that I enjoyed and think they can make great gifts during the holidays.

  7. What a great list of gift items! I think it’s fun I got some new hiking boots too! 🙂

  8. Great list. I could do with a pro shot case, my action cam is not so awesome. A decent osprey backpack would help too.

    1. Are these a little hint of what you want Christmas? What color of backpack do you like? Ha lol!!

  9. Definitely, the pick on there is the underwater phone case!

    1. Absolutely! I think it is really a cool thing! The underwater or adventure photography opportunities are amazing! Thanks so much for stopping by!
