Gifts for Walkers: 13 of the Best Present Ideas for Walkers
From wearable technology to cosy fleeces, discover some of Regatta Great Outdoors' best gifts for walkers this Christmas.
A Heated Jacket
Our heated jackets are perfect for tackling winter walks and cold morning commutes. They’re one of our best Christmas gifts for walkers, bringing the benefits of an electrical heating system together with lofty insulation to help the wearer stay warmer for longer.
They’re powered by a rechargeable USB battery pack (sold separately) which can also be used to charge up a mobile phone when not in use.
A New Rucksack
If they’ve relied on the same old rucksack for years and years, maybe now’s the time to consider replacing it. Alternatively, you could invest in a larger rucksack for them to use for camping or simply just to fit in more of their hiking equipment.
A New Pair Of Walking Boots
An outdoor essential and a fantastic gift idea for walkers, a fresh pair of walking boots will make a world of difference to their hikes. Whether for him or for her, we’ve got plenty of walking boots to discover here at Regatta.
There’s waterproof walking boots for walking in bad weather or stream hopping, as well as rugged technical pairs to help tackle the toughest of trails.
New In: A Brite Light Jacket
Brite Light is the latest addition to our range of wearable technology. They’re a collection of waterproof jackets which feature a built-in LED torch in the peak of the hood.
They’re a great present idea for walkers that often head out on their adventures late night or early morning, though they’re also handy for commuting to work during the darker months.
A Head Torch
As an alternative to our Brite Light jackets, you could also consider getting them a suitable head torch. It’ll make for a great stocking filler, and will serve them well through low-light hikes, reading at the camp site and unexpected power cuts.
A Packable Jacket
Small enough to pack down into a rucksack, affordable enough to pick up as a last minute gift. Packable jackets are always useful to keep on hand, especially if you’re out and about in the unpredictable UK weather. Make sure they’re always prepared with a waterproof outer shell.
A Pair of Walking Socks
It’s rare to go a Christmas without somebody gifting a pair of socks. Well, this year they can be some dedicated walking socks! They offer higher levels of comfort over a basic pair, as well as underfoot airflow channels for extra ventilation as they walk. They’re an effective way to keep moisture down inside walking footwear, and help reduce the chance of blisters forming.
A Boot Bag
This Boot Bag is perfect for storing those muddy boots after a long walk. It’s hardwearing and comes with a wrap around zip and a convenient easy carry handle. Handy for keeping wet and muddy walking boots away from other belongings. A very useful gift for any avid walker.
A Water Bottle
A hiking essential, treat the rambler in your life to a brand new aluminium water bottle, equipped with a handy karabiner which can be fixed to a backpack for easy carrying.
A Cosy Fleece
Great for walking or casual wear, fleeces are a comfortable and versatile addition to anyone’s outdoor wardrobe. Wear them on their own as an outer layer or wear them underneath a waterproof coat as an insulating mid layer.
A Wash Bag
This washbag is perfect for taking on the go. Featuring hardwearing polyester, it’s designed to withstand wear and tear. The washbag comes with internal organisation compartments for all your wash essentials. There’s even a mirror too. The handy shower hook makes for easy hanging. Very useful for multi-day hikes or camping trips away.
A Torch Beanie
Our men’s torch beanie hat is perfect for adventures in low light. It’ll provide lasting warmth throughout winter hikes and comes with three brightness settings as well as a rechargeable battery. Handy to keep stored in your rucksack all year round for some hands-free visibility.
A Pair of Gloves
Another winter weather essential, a good pair of gloves will help fend off the cold on their hiking adventures. There are plenty of pairs that also include touch-tips to keep them connected to your smart phone when you’re on the go.
