Looking for gifts for outdoor women? I’ve got you covered! At home or abroad, I spend most of my time in the outdoors and have an idea or two about what gifts the outdoorsy woman in your life might want.
If you’re a little intimidated about picking out gifts for outdoorsy girls, this guide is here to help you find that special something for the adventurous woman in your life.
I’ve broken this list of outdoor gifts for women down into sections based on price so that you can find the perfect gift within your budget. At the end, there are some cute stocking stuffer-sized gift ideas.
Outdoor Gifts For Women Under $25
Buffs are such a useful item to have while outdoors. It saved me in Yellowknife while II was out in -40 chasing the northern lights, as you can easily pull it up to cover the part of your face exposed to the wind.
Buffs are also helpful for warm climates as sun protection, making them one of the most versatile gift items for outdoorsy women.
2. Nature Inspired T-Shirts
These nature-inspired t-shirts are a great way for adventurous woman to show off their love of the outdoors with fashionable nature-inspired prints.
3. Books That Inspire You To Get Outdoors
Give the gift of inspiration with one of these outdoorsy books.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed is one of my all-time favorites. This beautiful memoir tells the story of how Strayed hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail with no prior experience after the death of her mother.
Another inspiring gift book is ‘Women Who Hike,’ which profiles over twenty of America’s most inspiring women adventurers and provides readers with practical how-to suggestions to maximize their own potential in hiking and life.
Better yet, get your outdoorsy woman a kindle so she can download all of her favorite books. They are lightweight, waterproof, and last days on a single charge.
4. Weatherproof Journal
This all-weather notebook is a thoughtful gift choice. It’s designed with materials that repel water, oil, mud, and grime, so she can take it to document all her outdoor adventures.
5. Phone tripod
As a solo traveler, I know the struggle of taking nice photos on solo outdoor adventures. This phone tripod solves that problem, making it super easy to snap insta-worthy photos no matter where you are.
6. Hiking Socks
Let’s face it, who doesn’t love getting socks as a gift when you’re an adult? I stepped into so many puddles wearing SmartWool socks while hiking around St. John’s and was super impressed at how comfortable I was even after getting my feet wet.
My two favorite brands of hiking socks are Smartwool and Darn Tough Socks, which are more dense and absorbant than SmartWool.
7. Female Urination Device
While this might not be the sexiest gift out there, this female urination device is by far one of the most practical. Peeing as a woman sucks, and this makes it way easier.
8. Outdoor blanket
An outdoor picnic blanket is a cute gift for any outdoorsy woman. It’s always nice to have something to sit on while camping at parks or to throw in the car for a road trip. Who knows, she may even take you on a picnic after receiving this gift.
Gifts for the adventurous woman between $25-50

9. Portable Campfire
This portable campfire is such a cute gift idea! Each mini fire pit is only 3.94 inches wide and 2.76 inches high and only weighs one lb., so you can easily bring it on picnics, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, traveling, beaches, and almost any outdoor activity.
It will create an instant atmosphere in any outdoor gathering. I also love that it’s made of safe soy wax and recycled materials!
10. Trucker Hat
An outdoor themed trucker hat is a great gift choice for women who love the outdoors because it’s useful for sun protection, getting hair out of your face, and generally looking cute.

Clever travel companion is a brand of clothing designed to help protect you from pickpockets, with built-in stealth pockets.
While these clothes are designed for travel, they also make an excellent gift for an outdoor woman as you can easily carry your belongings while you’re out exploring. Plus, women who love the outdoors probably also love to travel!
12. Nature Inspired Jewelry
I love showing off my passion for the outdoors through the jewelry that I wear. Etsy has some adorable options, like these mountain and tree necklace pendants. Fashionable women who love the outdoors will also love these cute accessories!
This lightweight, packable hammock is one of the best gifts for outdoorsy women because it’s suitable for all kinds of adventures!
It easily packs up small, so you can throw it into a backpack while hiking and then hang it up between the trees if you want to relax. Or bring it to the park to chill – the possibilities are endless!
13. Yeti Rambler Tumbler
This 14oz tumbler is the perfect outdoor companion for morning coffee. The double-wall vacuum insulation keeps beverages hot for hours! I got one as a gift from Nova Scotia Tourism on my trip to Cape Breton and have no idea how I lived without it before.

These quick-dry towels by Nomadix are so versatile. They pack up light and are ideal for travel and all kinds of outdoor adventures like day hikes, camping, or hitting the beach. Plus, it comes in a cute national park print!
I always have a headlamp in my bag when I hit the outdoors! Even if I don’t plan to be out late, you never know what will happen. They can be a lifesaver! Any hiker, climber, camper, or stargazer will appreciate this gift.
Lifestraw is a game-changer If you’re spending a lot of time outdoors and don’t have easy access to clean drinking water. With a lifestaw water bottle, you can have safe, clean-tasting water on every adventure, whether you’re refilling straight from the lake, river, well, or tap.

20. Merino Wool Base Layers
I cannot explain how much I love merino wool base layers for all my outdoor adventures, especially backpacking. It’s not only lightweight but keeps you cozy as the material traps your body heat to keep you warm and dry. It’s a gift they will be sure to thank you for time and time again!
21. Hydro flask water bottle
Water is an adventurer’s best friend, and Hydroflask is my fave water bottle. The stainless steel design keeps your water cool for up to 24 hours, which is ideal for long adventures! Plus, it’s much more environmentally friendly than buying plastic bottles.
22. Hiking Leggings
Leggings are a woman’s best friend. They are my go-to item for almost every hike, providing protection from the sun or warmth when in cooler areas! Get a thermal pair if you know your outdoorsy woman will be in cold climates.
23. Travel Coffee Press
Because instant coffee isn’t okay. If you know a woman who loves the outdoors as much as she loves a good cup of coffee, then this travel coffee press is the perfect gift choice. The insulated double-walled stainless steel keeps her favorite beverage hot for hours, and the micro-filter keeps the cup free of grit and sludge, so each cup tastes as delicious as the first.
24. America The Beautiful Pass
If you know a woman who loves visiting U.S. national parks, then this park pass is the ultimate gift. It gives her free entry to all the parks for a year for only $80. Considering entry into most parks is around $30, this is a bargain!

While not completely necessary, I take my Bose speaker on most of my adventures and never regret it. Nothing like taking in a gorgeous mountain sunset with your favorite song!
27. An Experience
You can browse hundreds of unique experiences worldwide, like a hot air balloon in Cappadocia or a helicopter ride over Niagara Falls. Whichever experience you choose, any outdoorsy woman is sure to love it.
The Osmo Pocket is another travel camera I love, but I think the GoPro is the better of the two in terms of gifts for women who love the outdoors. You can read my full review comparing the Osmo Pocket and GoPro here!
Fitbits are excellent outdoor companions because they track all the hard work you do. The battery can also last up to a week, which is great if you’re headed into the backcountry.
31. Hiking boots
Any woman who loves to hike needs a good pair of boots to go with her. These hiking boots are my go-to boots for the trails! I’ve worn them on both day hikes in Patagonia and multi-day treks through Nepal and on the Inca Trail in Peru, and they show no signs of being worn down.
