The outdoors are more of a refuge for us now than they've ever been before. And now that the weather is finally warming up, it's time to prepare to get back out there — and there's a pretty good chance there's someone in your life doing the same, taking inventory of the gear they have and that which needs picking up or replacing. If that's the case, you may want to snag a gift or two for that person (or persons) to help them better enjoy their adventures in camping, hiking, fishing, etc. In that case, the ideas here — which include coffee primed for camping, a fully loaded trail running vest and so much more — will be well-received. You really can't go wrong with any of these outdoor gifts.
