The Ultimate Gift Guide for the 2020 Holiday Season

The 2020 Holiday Season

A global pandemic, shutdowns and stay-at-home orders have caused 2020 to be a rough year for everyone. Travel plans were canceled, special events were postponed, and many adventures had to be put on hold. While this holiday season may not look like most, we can still make it special! One way to do that is to find the perfect gift for your family and friends.

A few trends have emerged as a result of 2020, including buying American made products and focusing on local, outdoor adventures! So, we have created the perfect holiday shopping guide with that in mind! 

The Ultimate Gift Guide for 2020 

1.   National Parks Explorer Map

What better way to encourage travel in the USA than by gifting this National Parks Explorer Map! They can chart their adventures on this map as they seek out some of the USA’s most magnificent treasures—its National Parks. An irresistible blend of "vintage textbook" and "classic adventure movie," it beckons them to plan some road trips in the new year and explore the ones they've missed.

You can complete the evergreen print with an optional birch poster frame handcrafted in Chicago. The contemporary, magnetic panels attach with a safe, secure clamp.

We love this brand! Hummingbird Hammocks weigh about 30% less than anything else on the market, they also pack small and travel well. You'll find no bulky metal parts or thick webbing. They use actual reserve parachute nylon and a button link system, so you can compress the hammock into a very small stuff sack! Best of all, these hammocks are made in the USA!

7. Darn Tough Vermont Socks

Darn Tough is a family owned business that has been knitting socks in Vermont for nearly 40 years. They say they make their socks in the USA not because it’s the easy thing to do, but because it’s the right thing to do. They state," There are faster and cheaper alternatives but nobody ever outsourced anything for quality." They use only the best ethically sourced Merino Wool and make a sock for every activity! We personally highly recommend their hiking/trekking socks! Getting socks for Christmas can actually be exciting when they are Darn Tough socks!
