5 Gifts for Outdoor Kids

“GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!” It’s something we all heard when we were kids and if you ask me, it’s something more kids should be hearing more often today.  I know,  I know. Easy for me to say when I don’t have kids but I’ve spent enough time with them to know that when you give a little guy or girl something that makes them feel like they’re “getting bigger” or can “do it myself,” the more likely they are to love it. What I’m trying to say is that you should probably scroll down and scope these gifts out whether you’re shopping for your own kids or someone else’s!

Check ya later sippy cup

It’ll be easy to keep kids hydrated when they’ve got cool gear to sip out of! If you’re shopping for little guys check out this Camelbak. With the bite and sip valve you won’t have to worry about spills or leaks and they’ll love that it pops up with the push of a button. If the kids your shopping for are a bit older or need hands free hydration you might check out a hydration pack.


Shades of all sizes

So they want to look cool? Well we can help with that. The Julbo Bubble Sunglasses with are perfect for tiny faces, and let you easily attach a retainer cord if your child is apt to pull sunglasses off or drop them accidentally. These shades are also soft and have wrap around lenses for prime protection. If your kids are past the age of throwing them off their face, these are a solid choice for kids ages 8-10.

Little lamps

I adore my headlamp and not just for night hikes. Imagine the endless fun kids can have with a headlamp of their own. Fun for when the power goes out, for playing coal miners, reading under the covers….the list could go on and on. Pick one up and see what adventures your kids will have!

SmartWool socks

Let’s be fair about this one. You’ve got a killer pair (or many) of SmartWool socks to keep your feet warm, dry, and happy so why shouldn’t tiny toes be happy too? Plus this one’s a two pack so you’ll always have a back up.

kid hat

Gone bananas for hats

I’m not going to lie, if it came in grown up sizes or I had a tiny head, I’d definitely own this hat. Aside from the basics like it’s made of super-warm, fleece-lined wool, it’s also super cute and will be the envy of all the other kids on the playground (unless their parents were cool enough to scoop one up for them too!).

Kat is a biophiliac who defines herself as a “girly tomboy.” She is pumped to have recently joined the EMS team to help out with web design and social media. In addition to doing the whole broke college student thing, she enjoys running, yoga, hiking, slacklining, biking, backpacking, and longboarding. Sleep (like any college student) is also pretty high on her list and if she isn’t doing one or more of the above activities she can be found snuggled up for a catnap with her best dog pal Allie.
