Gift Guide for Outdoor-Loving Moms: Under $50 + a Giveaway

I have to admit, I am not a huge shopper. I don't like the crowds and I am frugal. But it is the time of year when it can't be avoided. So if you are looking for a few ideas for yourself or other outdoorsy moms, here are a few things I would purchase again if I had the opportunity. And don't forget to enter to win a $50 gift card to the Sierra Trading Post.

For Going Out: Outdoor Research Oasis Sombrero


Because our "going out" means spending time outdoors in nature. This is my most used outdoor item.
I love this hat. The brim is wide and offers awesome sun protection without being floppy and in my face. It isn't too tight around the head but that can be adjusted if you like a tighter fit. Last but not least, it is super affordable.

For Staying In: Grandma Gatewood's Walk + Chocolate

Whether you are an avid hiker or not, you will appreciate what this woman accomplished. Just goes to show that no matter your situation or age, you can accomplish great feats.

For Fun: Camping Gear Decal for you car

Because we want everyone to know what we would rather be doing. She has a bunch of other fun decals, check her out.

For Action: Gerber Evo Jr. Serrated Knife

source
I learned years ago when I was working as a park ranger to never head to the woods with out a knife. The only difference nowadays is I just have to keep it tucked away so the kids aren't likely to find it in my backpack. I have had this knife for 6 years and have been happy with the quality. It gets regular use but not extremely heavy use.  It is small and easy to use. It has been perfect for sharpening marshmallow roasting sticks and cleaning up walking sticks for the kids. I have even used it to clean up sticks the kids and I have used for doing crafts.

DIY: Eco-Friendly Fire Starters

source
Sometimes it is fun to give a homemade gift and these are awesome. I made a version of these in the spring and they are the best way I have found so far to start a fire. You could even add sage or other dried herb for repelling mosquitoes or different fragrances.

For FREE: Adventuring print

source
I love this print. I found it on Pinterest a while ago and looked closer a couple weeks ago when I was starting think about Christmas gifts. I couldn't believe it is free. Well, not the printing, you have to pay for that, but the artwork doesn't cost a thing.
