When the weather starts to cool and Christmas draws near, my thoughts go something like this: what cool toys or clothes should we get the kids? What on earth should I tell the Grandparents? They don’t really need any MORE toys!
So as summer wore on and turned to fall, I tried my hardest to write down those gift ideas- more practical in nature- that I was sure to forget by the time winter arrived. On this list I tried to include fun but practical gifts, often the things my kids were begging for on our camping or climbing trips. I also included some of my favorite outdoor items, as this maybe the time to get them! Maybe this list will only be helpful for me but I figured I would share it in case there is another struggling holiday shopper out there…
10. New Ski/Snow Pants
9. Compressible camping pillows
8. New backpack for bringing all those toys hiking!
7. Sleeping bags
6. Base layers – for skiing in the winter and camping in the summer
5. Camelbak Kid’s Water Bottle
4. Kids Climbing Harness
3. Climbing Chalk Bag
And here are a few sites I have found some great deals at:
