We have all been there, it’s your friends birthday in a week and they already have absolutely everything they could ever want. They are the type that if they want something, they buy it and you are left with no gift ideas for this year’s birthday. If you find yourself not being able to afford a day out, or a mini trip to a beach or the mountains, here are some gift ideas that will please any friend with an adventurous soul.

We all know how long the process of getting a passport takes, there is the forms, awkward photos, and long waiting period. So a great cover or holder is a great idea as a gift for a friend who makes good use of theirs! You can even get them customized for an extra special touch.
Coordinates have hit a certain craze lately, but that’s not the only adventurous themed jewelry that is out there. Check out some of the items below that are perfect for any wandering mind.
3. Key chain
You have like all of $5 to your name but don’t want the birthday person feel unloved so here is a little something to make them smile. A personal favorite are the types that have “multi-use” – ya know to open water…
Does your friend not have a written bucket list? Get them started! A journal is perfect for their adventurous mind to write down all of their ambitions and lists of mountains they want to hike one day.
Another smaller idea to add to the mix. Stickers are great to slap onto canteens, vans, and coolers. Who doesn’t like to add a little personality to their gear?
6. House Decor
If you are like me, your obsession with the outdoors doesn’t just stay outside, it follows you into your home. Artwork and house decor that revolves around wanderlust and the outdoors is one gift you can’t really go wrong with as a gift.
7. Camera Equipment
If your birthday person loves to bring their camera on their excursions, then a new camera strap is a unique gift that can be fully customizable and would get a lot of use.
Support your loved one’s travel dreams by getting them a piggy bank besides the coffee can they have in the freezer. You can go with the classic look, or with the more hipster scene by getting them a glass growler piggy bank (bonus points if it has beer in it).
We have seen the ads on Facebook that show John Muir quotes on t-shirts and jackets, everyone secretly wants one. There are loads of companies now that offer outdoors related apparel that can be worn both by the campfire and on the town.
10. Camping Supplies
This is a little more generalized but no one can really have too much camping supplies. There are the obvious things like tents and new boots, but some of us have those friends that a little homemade dry shampoo wouldn’t be the worst of gifts to give.
Of course the best gift would be an all expense paid trip to wherever they wanted in the world, but this list was geared towards those who maybe are saving for that a little later 😉 Is there something you think I missed? Let me know in the comments!
