Hikers often set out to the mountains and woods in their quest to bond with nature. Leaving their hectic modern lives behind, it’s a way of healing and a pathway to bringing wisdom into their lives. Hikers find all their thrills and fun under the open sky, below trees’ shadows, and by listening to the twitter of birds. However, apart from the fun quotient, hiking is also all about preparation by carrying the right equipment and accessories.
Once winter is over, the seasons such as spring, summer and fall will come with bright and beautiful days. The weather will be perfect for hiking as nice temperatures and breathtaking views promise to make the experience wonderful.
Which Gifts to pick for Hikers?
What kind of gift do you wish to give to a hiker? There are several essential things that hikers need to have for a fulfilling hiking trip. According to me, some of the best gifts would be as follows:
1. Backpack – For holding maps, snacks, first aid kits, a blanket, a knife, gloves etc.
2. Rain Jacket – Useful for someone who is hiking during the rainy season.
3. Camp Sleeping Bag – Essential for a night out when hiking.
4. Radio Set – Key equipment for communication, especially during emergencies.
5. Camp Lantern – During a night’s stay it can light up the tents.
6. Mini wallet – A thin wallet can be quite handy for carrying cash, cards, and the hiker’s ID.
A mini wallet is extremely crucial for hikers. These are different from leather wallets, and can prove to be a real friend to hikers for keeping their cash and cards safe.
When going for a hiking trip, it’s important for backpackers to carry at least two debit and two credit cards, preferably of different card issuing companies. During any contingency, if one card doesn’t work, the other one can be used. You can tuck away a slim wallet comfortably, and it will help you sort cards and cash easily to meet urgent financial needs.
You can find high-quality wallets online in different colors. Some of these wallets are available for $10-$15, which is an affordable price range, considering the utilities they provide. So, pick a wallet and gift it to a hiker now. It will make his or her hiking experience better.
