GIFT GUIDE: THE OUTDOORSY GUY

By Sarah Kershaw, 2 December 2017

It's the start of December, AKA officially time to get your gift list in order. If you've got a mate who's never not collecting for a casual Three Peaks Challenge, or a brother who's addicted to coasteering, these gifts will be a breath of fresh air.

This is not a guy you'll find gaming in his pants on a Saturday morning. Instead, he's more likely to be yomping across some windswept hinterland or waking up in a tent after a Bear Grylls-like night of survival tactics. So, if you're after a premium gift, a pair of hardy walking boots from Canadian heritage brand Sorel or The North Face's iconic Nuptse down gilet should get him heading outside on the big day sooner than you can say, 'bucks fizz with breakfast?'.

 

However, if you're not endowed with a big budget, pick a stylish stocking filler instead. Fifty Places To Camp Before You Die by Chris Santella will have him planning his next trip during the Queen's speech, while a waterproof torch and an enamel flask and cup set are camping classics. And if he's about that great outdoors trend as much as he is about the lifestyle, this North Face beanie or these Volcom gloves will keep him cosy even if he's doing more dog walking than dog sledding this winter.
