Giving a loved one the perfect gift is one of my favorite parts of the holidays. However, finding that perfect gift is a whole other story! Since taking on a minimalist lifestyle, I try to find gifts that target my friends’ and families’ interest, rather that just wrapping up another sweater or patterned socks that just gets added to their closest. Rather than giving “stuff”, I want to give joy, happiness, and excitement. While I’ve been leaning towards providing experiences as gifts, I like to also sneak in a little something extra to spread the holiday cheer. Here is a collection of gifts I absolutely love for the adventurous people in your life! Whether it’s your uncle who’s hiking mountains, your sister who’s kayaking rivers, or you best friend who’s traveling the world, these gifts are sure to warm their hearts and fuel their passion!
