Christmas is a time to indulge your loved ones and buy them those items they might not be able to justify buying themselves.


The same goes for campers, who might have been holding back from buying some pieces that would improve their camping experience due to expense. The following gifts will go down a storm with those people in your life that enjoy the great outdoors.

There is nothing worse than wandering around your camp in the same sweaty boots you wore all day, and North Face makes the perfect solution. The Nuptse slippers look like they’re made from a sleeping bag, and they are quite similar. For just $54, you can make sure there will be no more squelching around camp in wet muddy boots.


When it comes to jackets, the Patagonia Nano-Air hoody combines warmth and breathability and is perceived to be one of the best mid-layers you can buy. At $299, it’s not cheap but if you can’t spoil your family at Christmas, when will you spoil them.

While it’s not exactly a luxury item, there should be no skimping when it comes to maximizing your chances of survival if something goes wrong in the wilderness. With the SOL Origin Survival Tool, you have everything you need to alert others to your emergency situation, including a signal mirror, knife and various types of cord.


Every camper loves to take a multi-tool away with them, even though most attachments never get used. For that special camping fan in your life, why not splash out on a military-grade Letterman multi-tool. The Super Tool 300 EOD balances quality and affordability at $99.

Under $100: El Poble-Sec, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.

Try Regional Chinese in the East Village

In food capitals like New York City, foodie crazes seem to rise and set as quickly as the sun, but one trend that has endured for awhile now is the city’s penchant for regional Chinese cuisine, and the East Village is home to some of the city’s top spots for sampling your way through several of these regions.

Visiting Winter Destinations in the Summer

Some places appear better to visit in the winter. For example, anywhere known for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, will be less visited in the summer because those same people are going to spend their time at the beach or another destination. However, visiting these destinations during the off-seasons can show a side of the city or town that can’t be seen under piles of snow. It’s worth checking out a couple of these favorite winter destinations.
