Gifts We Love: Holiday Edition

Posted on November 22, 2022 by Reed Naliboff

The holidays are a special time of the year—we remember that the people around us and the moments before us matter the most, and sometimes, giving a gift is the perfect way of showing those around you just how much you care. Finding the perfect gift can often feel like a hassle, but who says it has to be? We’ve laid out a few items we think would look great both under the tree and on the water this year.


So much more than a paddle board, give the gift of adventure, relaxation, and rejuvenation this year. Paddle boarding allows you to center yourself both physically and mentally on the water—a gift that extends well beyond your purchase. Although we offer boards for every type of skill level and water condition, we think our Pioneer or Explorer boards are great picks for gifting!

  • Pioneer — This is our best-selling board! It’s beginner friendly, extremely durable, and built for a wide range of activities.
  • Explorer — This is the perfect pick for the adventure-seeking paddler! It has a high-performance build, shaped for a faster paddle, and can carry you and all your gear.

No matter where you live, we can agree with the fact that a bonfire is never a bad idea. You may think bonfires are out of the picture without an indoor fireplace or outdoor fire pit, but Solo Stove offers the world’s most portable fire pit. Beyond the power of building a fire wherever you go, it’s the moments shared around the fire that are the best gift yet. This holiday season, give your loved ones (or yourself) the gift of good moments around the fire with this tabletop fire pit. As a plus, it's under $100, doesn't take up too much space, and comes in a variety of colors, making it the perfect holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast.

Even better than paddling on the water, is being able to capture the moments all around you… on the water. So whether it’s on the water, or falling into the water, a GoPro camera is the perfect gift for those looking to capture moments and experiences with a versatile, waterproof, and high-quality camera. Cloud-connected, offering optimum video resolution, and waterproof up to 33+ feet, we think the HERO11 Black is the perfect holiday gift pick.

Effortlessly convert from stand up paddle board to kayak in only seconds with the Switch! Having received recognition from Gear Patrol, Architectural Digest, Travel+Leisure, and more, this award-winning hybrid can be easily converted from a single person kayak to a tandem kayak when you purchase an additional seat (coming soon). The Switch is extremely lightweight at just 19 pounds, yet is still extremely durable due to its rigid drop-stitch material. The seats and foot brace can be attached anywhere on the deck using the ISLE-LINK patent-pending attachment system, so you can customize for comfort and performance based on paddler size. More than an inflatable kayak, the Switch makes for a great paddle board due to its spacious deck that can be used for yoga, lounging, or bringing kids and pets along.





Relaxation is much needed once the holidays come around—this is why we’re recommending the ParkIt Voyager. Whether you’re on the beach, on a campground, or in your own backyard, this chair offers high-quality comfort, has a sealed cooler right underneath the seat, and has two straps so you can carry it around with ease like a backpack.

The gift of good sound is the gift that keeps on giving. Sharing moments next to the people you love is a lot better with the sound of your favorite music coming from a quality speaker. The JBL Flip 5 comes in a compact size for easy portability, has a battery life of 12 hours, and can be custom-designed to include your favorite colors, shapes, and text. Better yet? It’s waterproof—perfect for every outdoor adventure.

Did you know you could inflate your paddle board in just a few minutes? Whether it’s a gift for yourself or your best friend, the 12v Electric iSUP Pump saves you loads of time inflating your paddle board, so that more time can be spent adventuring on the water, and connecting to the mind, body, and soul. Simply connect to your car’s AC power socket or cigarette lighter.

There’s a lot of hype behind the YETI Hopper Flip 12 for a reason. It’s optimal design allows for easy transport, and its insulation is specifically tailored to keep your drinks cold no matter where you find yourself—on land, or on the water. This gift is great for the people in your life who love sharing moments around a nice, cold drink. Oh, and it’s waterproof.




We all have a coffee-lover in our lives, and with that, we’ve all come to learn that good quality coffee making should be available anytime, anywhere. That’s why we think the OXO Outdoor Campgrounds French Press is one of the most detailed gifts you can give the coffee-lovers in your life. This french press is easy to transport, made with recyclable materials, and makes brewing coffee one of the smoothest experiences to take on-the-go.

From camping trips to beach parties, the EcoFlow RIVER 2 Portable Power Station is one of our gifting recommendations because it can be given to individuals and families alike!
