A quality jacket can make all the difference to a walking trip!

One of the most obvious options when it comes to Christmas gifts for walkers is a jacket. There are so many options online and in stores. Berghaus, Rab, The North Face and Patagonia offer some of the best options. In a climate like Scotland’s, it is important to have the right amount of insulation to keep warm, but at the same time make sure that the jacket is breathable. Think of who you are buying for and what would suit them best.

GPS Navigation

Treat your loved ones! A GPS navigation is a luxury option when it comes to Christmas gifts for walkers!

Another gift idea you could consider buying for a family member or friend is a walking GPS system. Very popular among walkers and a key tool to use when geocaching, a walking GPS can come in handheld or watch form! A perfect solution for those who struggle with direction, or simply a handy piece of equipment your loved ones could use in an emergency. Though a pricier gift option, these really are great for keen walkers and explorers! Also, another way you could treat your family or friend this Christmas, is by enrolling them in a training course. Look at our last post to find out more.

Rucksacks and Roll Packs

Every walker would appreciate a new rucksack!

An essential for any walker, a rucksack might be a perfect option for a Christmas gift! There are so many different styles and sizes available. We advise that you choose a rucksack or roll pack that is durable, easily adjustable and has a good capacity. Distance/hill walking takes its toll on the body, so make sure the rucksack you choose does not do the same! What about a more fashionable option? The recipient can then use this bag for daily use as well as the long walks they love.

What about these walking essentials?

Are you on a budget? Treat your friend or family member with some simple walking essentials! There are so many great Christmas gifts for walkers.

Muscle or Foot Care Treatment – An essential that is often overlooked when thinking of walking gifts, are muscle or foot care treatments. Whether someone is taking part in a hill walk or is involved with one of EasyWays’ routes, body aftercare is so important.

Bottle/Flask – A piece of equipment that your walking fanatic friend may overlook investing in is a good quality bottle. There are so many on the market, from a simple high capacity water bottle to a bottle that keep contents colder/warmer for longer.

Magazine Subscription – Another alternative option to gift your loved one with is a subscription to ‘Country Walking’ magazine. Though maybe not an essential, this magazine subscription can be perfect for those who love country walking!
