8 Useful Gifts For Your Most Adventurous Friends

Adventurous travelers can be among the hardest people to shop for. They tend to prefer experiences over things and probably have a souvenir collection that makes the candle from Anthropologie you were thinking of buying them seem a little blasé. So what’s an anxious present-buying friend or relative to do? Double down on their passion for wanderlust. Ahead, we’ve got gifts for all the adventurers in your life. Whether they're into the outdoors, solo trips, bucket list completion, or all of the above, you can go ahead and cross them off your list.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
