Nature and outdoors gift ideas

By Monika Sofrenovic

Give the gift of The Great Outdoors™

It’s time you thought outside the box. These top Canadian nature and outdoor experience gifts can help your special someone shake up their sedentary winter routines. Treat them to a romp through a flowering lavender field, a relaxing, rejuvenating yoga session in the BC woods, or a day at the track in a souped up sportscar. That’s just scratching the surface of possible adventures that await!

Give the type of gift that breaks you free of everyday routines! Giftjoy offers “adventure gift cards” for experiences that can range from a bit of mellow fun to a full-on thrill ride. Depending on what your special someone’s into, you could treat them to a chilled out, eco-tent camping weekend…or the chance to whip a Ferrari ‘round a racetrack for the day!

Price range: $ – $$$

Have a bona-fide lavender lover on your list? Well, you’re in luck. Rocky Meadows Lavender provides essential oils, bath and body products, candles—and more. It doesn’t get any more locally grown than this, either: practically everything they sell is made from lavender plucked straight from their rural Ontario farm.

Price range: $ – $$

There’s so much more to lavender beyond what you see on Instagram. Lavender Queen lets you experience the true benefits through their small-batch, certified-vegan products that are hand-crafted to order. Go ahead and spoil the lavender connoisseur in your life with luxurious bath bombs, body butter and artisanal soaps!

Up for a yoga session next to sparkling clear waters? What about a rejuvenating bath in the woods? Meander offers nature and forest therapy—with BC’s forests as a backdrop. It’s an unconventional gift, sure, but one that gives and your besties a chance to recharge and reconnect with yourselves and the natural world around you.
