If you’re reading this, the chances are that teddy bears and fluffy pink heart-shaped pillows aren’t at the top of your partner’s wish list for Valentine’s Day. So, to save you both from saccharine suffering, here are some great gift suggestions for the outdoors lover you love.
Valentine’s gifts for him
Call us a little old fashioned, but one of the sweetest things you can do for a guy is to bring him coffee in the morning. Unfortunately, this Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday. So, before he dashes out the door, fill up a Hydroflask coffee mug with his favourite brew and add a cute sticky note. As a bonus, create some hand-made coupons entitling him to future refills at home or on camping trips. (Because nothing beats someone bringing coffee to you in your tent!)
Your boy must have his toys – but what happens when their batteries go flat in the middle of nowhere? The Red-E RSP80 Power Bank provides him with enough power to charge all his devices when he’s not near a power source. Four solar panels and dual outputs provide fast, simultaneous charging. So, as long as he’s got sunshine and a signal, he’s got no excuse not to call and say he loves you.
Valentine’s gifts for her
Who says pocket knives are only for boys? We bet any outdoors-loving woman will fall in love at first sight with this gorgeous limited edition Victorinox Cape Protea tool. As well as looking fabulous, it’s also extremely handy, with 10 essential tools for everyday adventures. Beautiful, strong, and very clever indeed… Hold on – is that the gift or your girl we’re describing?
If she loves music and the outdoors, then you’ll score serious points when you give her a pair of Volcano Motion Bluetooth Headphones. And that’s even before you share the playlist you created for her, with all the great songs you’ve enjoyed together on it.
Valentine’s gifts for both of you
Nothing says you’re a close couple quite like matching shoes. And not just any shoes – but the best trail busting running shoes. Light, durable and stable on the most demanding trails, Salomon’s XA PRO 3Ds give you the confidence to surmount any obstacles together. Like your relationship, these shoes are ready to go the distance. Colour co-ordinate with this pair for him, and these for her.
Could there be anything more romantic than snuggling in a hammock on a sultry summer evening under some trees, and being gently rocked to sleep by the breeze? The Ticket to the Moon double hammock is comfortable, lightweight and extremely strong. It’s perfect for couples who love camping, backpacking, music festivals, or just chilling in the garden at home.
