Looking for something really special for the hikers in your life? With the holidays coming up, Hiking Lady’s Holiday Gift Guide can help you find the perfect gifts for everyone on your holiday list this year!
Hiking Gifts Under $50
- Swiftwick Pursuit Seven Socks. Swiftwick has a new line-up of their PURSUIT performance socks. Made of U.S. sourced merino wool, they are moisture wicking, ideal for hiking or around town, and have a seamless toe box. Plus the heel and toe areas are reinforced to make them highly durable! They come in six cuff heights. I use the PURSUIT Sevens because the cuff height is the ideal height for hiking boots. Swiftwick.com, $21.99.
- EcoVessel Boulder. This is one amazing insulated water bottle. The EcoVessel Boulder is a 24 ounce 18/8 stainless steel bottle with a 100 year warranty. It will survive all of your hikes and then some! I love the strainer, which can be used for tea, fruit infusion, or ice. Cold drinks will be cold for 36 hours; hot drinks will stay hot for 8 hours. A great value from a company focused on sustainability. EcoVessel.com, $26.95.
- Illumiseen Belt. Stay safe when hiking, jogging, or even pushing a stroller. The Illumiseen Belt is an adjustable belt with an LED light as well as a reflector. I use mine on Hiking Baby’s stroller; it can also be used around your waist or on your backpack. Illumiseen.com or Amazon.com, $19.99.
- REI Co-op Special Edition Flash 18 Pack. This is the perfect day pack when you’re out on a backpacking trip and need something small to take on short day hikes. No need to lug around a backpacking backpack! It is lightweight, converts into a stuff sack, and the back panel can be used as a sit pad. REI Co-op, $39.95.
Hiking Gifts Under $100
- OGT Survival Axe Pro. For the survivalist on your list, Off Grid Tools makes an amazing survival axe, the OGT Survival Axe Pro. Complete with 30 features, including a hatchet blade, hammer head, glass breaker, box cutter, pry bar, and a six inch aluminum blade, among many other tools, the OGT Survival Axe Pro is a must have in your emergency kit or with your camping gear. OffGridTools.com or Amazon.com $59.99.
- Solestar Hiking Insoles. These German made insoles provide excellent stability because they have a unique carbon fiber layer. Previously Solestar only made cycling insoles, which are used globally by many pro cyclists. With the introduction of the hiking line, we can all enjoy the stability of Solestar’s quality insoles. Solestar, 69.00 euros.

- REI Co-op Flash Carbon Women’s Trekking Poles. Indulge the lady hiker in your life with a pair of these lightweight, easily adjustable, and extremely comfortable trekking poles.

Happy trails and happy holidays!
