Gift Ideas for Outdoorsy People


Christmas Gift Ideas
With Christmas and the holidays on the horizon, it dawns on everyone that there’s just so much to do. You’ve got travel plans to organise, parties to RSVP to, kids concerts to attend, end of year tasks to wrap up at work, and gifts to buy for everyone.

If the thought of battling it out to get a carpark at your local shopping mall sends shivers down your spine, or your eyes are strained from looking through too many Christmas catalogue deals – then don’t stress!

The Snowys team have done the hard work, and put our heads together to come up with a bunch of present ideas for your outdoorsy mates and loved ones in your life. Check them out below!

1. Multi-tool for tackling everyday tasks

You can’t always lug around an entire toolbox, even if you want to. This is why a multi-tool like the Leatherman Wingman is a helpful addition to anyone’s pocket, glove box or pack.

Made in Portland, Oregon, and featuring a multitude of tools for all kinds of use, this high-quality stainless steel tool can be used at home, around the campsite or even at work.

This one is a go-to gift for your adventure loving special someone, family member… or be your own Father Christmas and get it for yourself!

2. Chair for kicking back at the beach

Sit back and relax with your feet in the sand, in the Coleman Low Sling Beach Chair.

Great for summer concerts, relaxing on the sidelines at your local sporting event, and of course, chilling out by the water.

The Low Sling Beach Chair is perfect for your beach and concert going rellies and is sure to be a staple in the warmer months.

3. Cooler for keeping food and bevvies chilled

Wheel one of these coolers out for trips to the beach, a day out in the sunshine, or to your mate’s BBQ to keep food and drinks nice and cold.

The 42 Can Wheeled Soft Cooler has an adjustable handle so it can be carried easily. It also has a food safe and antimicrobial lining, plus silver lined insulation for keeping things cool or warm.

A great choice that the whole family can enjoy for camping trips, or just on the weekend at the local park.

4. Tent for casual getaways

With its spacious enclosed vestibule, 2000mm Waterhead rating, heavy duty bucket floor, breathable mesh inner and compact size for easy transport – The Skygazer 3XV Tent from Oztrail is an entry level tent that has all the features a newbie could need.

It can be used in the backyard for the kids, at a music festival, or first Scout’s camp.

The Skygazer 3XV is a great pressie for the rookie outdoors person, or for getting the kids into camping.

5. Beach shelter for shade by the water

Leave the sizzling to the barbeque this summer. A Caribee UV Guardian Beach Shelter provides UPF50+ sun protection, so it’s perfect for chilling out under cover.

The UV Guardian is really easy to set up. Just unfold it out of the bag, pull the string on the top and the frame expands and tensions.

This shelter also only weighs 2.8kg, so it won’t weigh you down while you carry it to your favourite spot. This is another ripper of a present that the whole family can enjoy.

6. Picnic set for lazy afternoons at the park

Instead of leaving behind a critical piece of tableware on your trip, and having to eat with a spork the whole time, get a Companion 4 Person Picnic Set. 

With this set, you can just grab and go. Ideal for spontaneous outings or camping trips where you want a fuss-free all-in-one cutlery and tableware set.

Just pack some snacks and drinks and you’ll be ready to eat! A great option for those who love a bit of al fresco dining at the park or beach.

7. Stove for cooking at the campsite

If you know someone who’s using the same old camping stove they’ve had for years –  perhaps they need an upgrade.

The Zempire 2 Burner Classic Camp Stove is easy to use, with two burners, protective windshields, legs for keeping it off the ground, and an easy to use piezo ignition – so it’s perfect for car camping.

The ideal present for yourself, or the amateur camp chef in the family.
