A Holiday Gift Guide for the Adventure Seeker
Do you have an adrenaline junkie on your shopping list? Someone who is always outdoors looking for that next thrill? If so, finding the perfect holiday gift for them may require thinking outside the box. But you came to the right place. We have ideas for you, plenty of them.
Before all of the great technology we have today, adventure seekers had only memories of their escapades. Today, recording all your fun for posterity is easy with a Sony Action Cam. Waterproof, with a built in stabilization setting to reduce camera shake, it’s designed specifically for adventurers. The Action Cam can tackle any activity a thrill seeker can throw at it, from biking to kayaking or even rappelling. Heck, these cameras made a whole lot of BASE jumps off the Bridge this year.
Your adventurer needs the right gear and clothing. Companies like North Face, Patagonia, and Mountain Hardware all make great technical products, like waterproof jackets and pants and insulated clothes for layering. If you're looking for some great casual clothes that can stand the rigors of the outdoor lifestyle, Mountain Khakis is a great choice and a Bridge Day favorite.
Maybe you want to give that special someone a gift that really says “I think you're crazy, and I like it.” Might we suggest the gift of a tandem jump off the New River Gorge Bridge on Bridge Day? There are only 10 available every year, so it would put your adventurer in “rare air”, no pun intended. It takes over 100 skydives to qualify for a solo BASE jump off the Bridge, but the tandem option is for anyone who meets the safety criteria.
A WOW Gift
We realize that not everyone's idea of a holiday gift is a car. But if you are looking to give an adventurer a new ride, Subaru vehicles are built for the outdoor lifestyle. All-wheel drive, with accessories to help carry the “toys” of the wild, these cars can get you to just about anywhere fun is happening. Imagine how cool you'd be if the gift you're giving is in the driveway topped with a big red bow.
