Christmas Wish List For Walkers

Do know someone who's happiest when breathing in the freshest of air and taking in the spectacular views at the top of a hill? Well make sure your Christmas gift to them is something they'll love and use over and over again. 

Whether they just like heading out with the dog or have a desire to conquer the toughest trails in the land, we have a number of great gift ideas for walkers in our handy wish list.


Walking wish list

  1. Hiking bootsThe ultimate gift for a walker. A comfortable and protective pair of boots can save your loved one's feet from the perils of blisters and allow them to tackle that challenging trail they've had their eye on.
  2. Buff Essentially it's thirteen gifts in one! A Buff can be worn as a neckerchief, headband, wristband, mask, hair-band, balaclava, scarf, headband, scrunchie, saharaine, pirate cap, beanie and bandana.
  3. Walking poles - Walking poles can help take the strain off your loved ones knees, hips and back and allow them to walk further, faster and with less fatigue.
  4. Rucksack - Is it time to throw out their old tatty backpack? Well, replace it with a top of the range, feature-filled rucksack.
  5. Walking socks - Socks for Christmas? What a cliché! However, these aren't those novelty socks they'll only slip on when all their other pairs are in the wash. A thick pair of walking socks will keep their feet warm and comfortable and the hills.
  6. Bottle - Help them stay hydrated on the trail with a sturdy yet lightweight drinks bottle.
  7. Waterproof trousersWhen preparing for wet weather it can be easy to forget about your lower half. Make sure your loved one stays dry from top to bottom with a pair of waterproof trousers.
  8. MapIs there an area of Britain your loved one has always wanted to walk but never got round to it? Get them the push they need with a map of their desired location.
  9. Head torch - The winter months bring shorter days and longer nights, but that shouldn't keep your loved one indoors. Arm them with a headlamp for a hands-free light source to guide their way across the hills in the dark.
  10. Binoculars Buying for a nature lover? Well they'll be able to experience the great outdoors like never before with a pair of compact, yet high quality binoculars.

What would your walking mad loved one like to find under the tree?
