The most important feature in a sock is the ability to wick moisture away, keeping feet dry. These colorful Yuedge hiking socks
fit that bill! When shopping for hiking gifts for women that they will use over and over, blend practicality with fun.
Crazy colors bring fun to the hike. But what your hiker will love most is the moisture control, antimicrobial and anti-blister benefits.
Sometimes it take a bit of creativity to capture those crazy poses to share with your friends. That’s why I love the flexible legs on this UBeesize Tripod for Phones.
Those little legs will wrap around a tree branch, how cool! At 6.4 oz it doesn’t add much weight to the pack – and so worth it to get those amazing shots. It has a universal phone mount and will also fit most digital cameras making it one of my favorite hiking gifts for her.
This will easily become one of your favorite presents for hikers. She will find this so helpful in achieving truly memorable and fun photos.
I had no idea of the value of a cooling towel until I actually overheated on a hot sunny trail. It’s like a scary out of body experience. And it’s amazing how quickly you recover by placing a wet towel around your neck! So another tip when looking for gifts women hikers will really appreciate is to look for items that have safety features in a fun way.
You can show your hiker some love with this lightweight Kuen cooling towel that they can just clip to their pack. It comes in a 4 pack of assorted colors so you could easily split up for multiple stocking stuffers for hikers!
Every hiker needs one of these gorgeous Kalily Headband Bandanas
tucked into their pack. Of course they are beautiful to pull your hair back in the heat, but it can be worn in a dozen other ways. Who hasn’t run into some dust and needed a face cover, or temps drop and want a neck gaiter? These come in assorted pattern multi-paks so you could also split up for stocking stuffers!
These headbands continue to be a top choice for gift ideas for hikers.
The sun can be dangerous to women’s skin on the trail. This lightweight Baleaf UPF 50 Shirt
is the perfect solution. The soft fabric wicks away moisture, drying quickly on a hot day. Best of all it comes in a dozen colors both short sleeve and long sleeve. You’re going to want to grab a couple of these because they are the perfect gift for women hikers.
I can’t tell you how many pair of sunglasses I have lost on the trail. So I always carry a back up. These really cool Duduma Polarized Sunglasses
come in 9 colors to match your awesome hiker’s personality. They are incredibly reasonably priced too!
One of the best gifts for hikers because they not only look cool but the polarized lenses protect your hiker’s eyes.
No gift gift guide for women hikers would be complete without a playful hat! This Muryobao Sun Hat
can be crushed into your hiker’s pack until needed. The wonderful wide brim protects from harmful sun rays. I particularly like the mesh layer to allow air circulation on a hot day.
Best of all this is one of the gifts for backpackers that comes in 6 bright colors!
Cell phone and camera batteries drain fast on the trail. Your hiker will love this solar charger that they can just hang off the back of their daypack. This compact BEARTWO portable solar charge
is no bigger than a cell phone and during a day’s hike builds enough power to recharge your electronics. How cool is that!
Journalling on the trail is a great way to capture memories and ideas. We love this waterproof journal because a little rain has ruined many notes we’ve made. This 120 page Rite in the Rain Journal
is only 3 oz so it is easy to add to any backpack. Add a Waterproof Rite in the Rain pe
n to complete your gift for your hiker.
One thing that drives me completely crazy is digging through a jumbled mess in my day pack. Your favorite hiker will really appreciate a couple brightly colored stuff sacks
to sort their gear. Just reach into your pack and pull out the appropriate stuff sack and easy peasy… you have exactly what you need!
One of the best hiking gifts for her is this fun yet truly amazing book about reading nature’s signs. When we were in Alaska I was really intrigued with the art of reading animal droppings to see who had been in the area. In The Lost Art of Reading Nature Signs
