Best Gift Cards for Outdoor Enthusiasts

The best gift cards to give people who love the outdoors include gift cards for new gear such as Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops and Camping World. You should also consider gift cards to favorite pit stops like the coffee shop he hits on the way out of town or the restaurant he likes to eat at when he comes back off the mountain. A Visa® gift card is also a good choice because he can spend it nearly any place he wants–including local fishing holes and mom and pop shops off the trail. Make it personal by adding a picture of his last great adventure!

Pairing Ideas to Make it Personal

Once you decide which gift card to get the outdoor lover on your list, you have to decide how to present the gift card. I think delivering a gift card with a small token can make the entire gifting experience more personal. Here are a few simple ways to deliver an outdoorsy gift card with a personal touch:

What to Write on the Card

Sometimes all you need to do to make a gift card personal is add the right words. If you’re giving someone a gift of the great outdoors, then perhaps one of these sentiments will be just the thing you need to turn an outdoorsy gift card into a thoughtful gift.

“Let’s run away together…like now!”
Say it with a Nike gift card.

“Love your sense of Adventure. Hoping this gift card makes the next one possible.”
Say it with a REI gift card.

“Hope this gift cards finds you well and enjoying the things you love most. Happy Trails!”
Say it with a Cabela’s gift card.
