The Adventurer’s Holiday Gift Guide

Helping you take the guesswork out of gift giving, for your loved ones or for yourself.

We’ve found the perfect gifts for the explorers in your life.

Meet our Lucky 7:

1. Say ‘hello’ to NDVR Cycle Co. a new class of titanium travel bike featuring an easy-to-assemble collapsible frame. This custom all road bicycle features an airline legal transport travel case, which means no additional baggage fees, awkward box for your ride, or struggle to piece it all back together. The best part — NDVR runs a one-for-one model, which means for every NDVR bike sold, they donate a bicycle to a developing community via World Bicycle Relief. Get ready to experience freedom. Available at ndvrcycle.com

2. Stay in luxury and hit the trails.  You may not want to ever leave – Hotel Domestique, situated near Greenville, South Carolina. The hotel features awesome hospitality, cuisine, tours of nearby vineyards, and, of course, a healthy dose of adventure served daily via some of the best rides in the area. hoteldomestique.com

3. Bring on the Blues. We have a thing for handcrafted goods and we are guessing so are you. Billiam Denim brings high quality denim products – from jeans to denim aprons – with good old-fashioned craftsmanship.  Wait ‘til you put these on, you will never be able to wear your other jeans again. billiamjeans.com

4. Give more of what’s good. Goal Zero’s Lighthouse Mini is a solar powered versatile lantern with enough power to provide 500+ hours of illumination. Great for early morning rides when its dark for set up or for those epic backcountry camping trips. Did we mention Goal Zero’s work to empower poor communities to build sustainable economies? Now, that’s a bright idea. We believe great moments happen in the dark, thanks Goal Zero. (Lanterns start at $60) goalzero.com

5. Always be prepared is the scouts motto and we could not agree more. In case of emergency here’s a gift for the explorer who is always pushing boundaries. The folks at Uncharted Supply Co. have created a survival kit with everything they will need for the first 72 hours of an emergency.  The SEVENTY2 kit includes 30 tools with easy to follow instructions all stashed in a stylish pack.  You’ll want one (or two) for yourself. unchartedsupplyco.com

6. We found it! The gifts any cyclist will love – custom leather saddle and bar tape. Our friends at Leh Cycling hand-make incredible designs out of the finest leather. Off the rack is so last year. lehcyclinggoods.com

7. We’re feeling good right down to our feet. Nothing beats handcrafted goodness with a dash of personality by DeFeet. We swear these socks are perfect for all levels – from novice cyclists to ultra-runners and best for all day use lounging around the house watching Netflix by the fire during the holidays. Check out their fresh designs and grab a pair here.  (Starting $12) defeet.com
