Holiday Gift Ideas for Hikers


Need ideas for that hiker in your life?  Here are our top 10 picks to help make your holiday shopping easy.


1. Aveda Hand Cream

Hands get dry on long hikes with extended exposure.  A dab of this lotion will soothe even the driest, chapped hands.  Travel size is perfect for the hiking pack.

2. Fun & Functional Hiking Socks

Espresso Heather

Every hiker needs highly functional socks.  We hikers can never have too many, especially when it comes to socks with fun patterns.

3.  A Fantastic Highpointing Book

If that hiker in your life is a highpointer, this book is a MUST have.  Even if s/he is not yet into highpointing, this book may serve to inspire.

4.  Membership in the Highpointers Club

Membership comes with a subscription to just about the best quarterly journal ever. {Disclaimer: we might be biased since they put us on the cover.}

5.  Comfy Hoodie

These light hoodies were my go-to item for late summer hiking this year.

6A Summit Chicks Shirt


Make your holiday season complete with a fashionable Summit Chicks shirt.  All state highpoints and their elevation appear on the back (like a concert tour).  These are selling out quickly, so order yours early!

As of this posting, we have 1 men’s small, 2 men’s large, 4 women’s medium, and 2 women’s large.

7. WARM and fashionable mittens!

Tnf Black

Can’t go wrong with North Face, especially when they sport a fleece lining.

8. Summit Photo on Wood

Show off that summit photo or celebratory pose in front of a mountain your hiker has climbed.  High quality with a lot of character.

9. Long-Sleeved Performance Shirt

Rocket Red/Rocket Red

Warning: these TNF shirts are addictive – you’ll want one in each color.  They’re worth every penny.

Track all of those steps you get hiking and let them automatically upload to your dashboard online.
