Love is boundless—both an emotion and an action; we love all sorts of things: people, paddle boarding, peace—the definitions go far and wide. As Valentine’s Day approaches, we recognize there are more than a thousand ways to express how much you care for a loved one (or yourself). This Valentine’s Day gift guide covers some great gifts you can give to the people you love, to show just how much you care.
Quality time together just can’t be boxed in a pretty bow, but it can be shared on a paddle board. When you gift a paddle board, you gift adventure, exploration, and relaxation to a loved one. 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 the Pioneer or Explorer are great picks for gifting, or the Scout for when you want to paddle together!
For the loved ones that live for going out, exploring, and visiting new places, an annual national park pass is a great gift someone can enjoy all-year-round! This pass gives access to more than 2,000 recreational areas, including parks like Olympic National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Grand Teton Park, which are paddle board friendly!
A Cotopaxi bag, specifically the Allpa 35L Travel Pack, is a great gift for the sustainable lover in your life! Cotopaxi states that their Del Día bags are one-of-a-kind, specifically because the bags are made out of leftover fabric from larger companies, keeping adventurers happy, and landfills less full. This bag is perfect to take on paddle adventures, hiking trips, and even international trips where you may need a super versatile bag!
Nothing like a good old bonfire to keep that spark bright between you and your loved one. A great gift for friends, family, and significant others, Solo Stove offers the world’s most portable fire pit, making way for great memories around the fire. Beyond the power of building a fire wherever you go, it’s the moments shared that your valentine will never forget.
For another adventurous gift idea, a trip to a place you’ve never been, or to a favorite travel destination, is an experience everyone will love! AirBNB is great to explore, because other than booking a place to stay, you can also book experiences within the same destination. These are the types of gifts you can’t put in a box, but will surely be remembered for a long, long time.
Patagonia offers a variety of gear like sweaters, jackets, joggers, socks, beanies, and more for the adventurous, yet sustainable valentine in your life! There are so many gifts you can choose from for men and for women, all backed by Patagonia’s pledge to leave a better environmental and ethical footprint on the planet. This will elevate the significance of your gift in great ways as your loved one sports gear that gives back in great ways.
More than just any YETI cup, the Rambler 30 oz Tumbler With Magslider Lid is customizable so you can add a personalized touch to your Valentine’s Day gift! With the ability to have their name, a special design they may like, or one of Yeti’s limited edition Valentine’s Day designs etched onto it, your special someone will be sure to value this specialized touch.
