Whether your friends and family love hiking, climbing, camping, or even a simple stroll with the dog, we’ve got some fantastic gifts you can surprise them with this Christmas.

From stocking fillers to the ideal outdoorsy gifts for men and women, we’re putting the ‘fun’ back into functional gifts – and we have plenty of ideas for you to choose from right here at Winfields Outdoors.

Stocking fillers

Stocking fillers

Everyone loves getting little surprises in their stockings – so why not choose Winfields Outdoors to find the perfect little Christmas gift for 2023? Choose from our top outdoorsy gifts to surprise your loved ones – or as an ideal option for the office Secret Santa.

Socks

No Christmas is complete without a good pair of socks. These are an absolute stocking staple – and very welcome in the colder months. For outdoorsy people, socks are even more valuable as a Christmas gift because they provide an extra layer against the cold, protect your feet from blisters, and can be a stylish, or statement, fashion accessory.

At Winfields Outdoors, we have amazing brands for you to choose from this Christmas. Our Heat Holders socks are perfectly designed to trap air close to the skin and help keep you nice and cosy, with some in the range rated up to 2.3 tog! Or, choose from our Jeep collection, which includes socks with additional arch support and heavyweight cushioning for even more comfort out and about.

Head torch

Exploring the outdoors in winter can be tricky because the days are shorter, and there isn’t as much light to navigate by. So, why not surprise your loved ones with a brand new head torch this Christmas?

We have a fantastic range for you to choose from to suit any budget. For example, our Regatta 5 LED Head Torch comes with adjustable straps for extra comfort and security. Or, pick up a BioLite HeadLamp 200 Rechargeable Head Light – with several powerful light modes, and sweat-wicking fabric for maximum comfort, your loved ones can explore the outdoors in any weather.

Compass

Compasses are an incredibly useful outdoorsy gift. From low-to-no-tech outdoor expeditions, to completing a Duke of Edinburgh, having a compass can save your loved ones a lot of time and energy – making them the perfect functional stocking filler gift.

Plus, they don’t take up much room in the pack (or the stocking!). Choose from our fantastic, compact Highlander Orienteering Compass, with the bright yellow ensuring it can easily be found in any weather. Alternatively, the Trekmates Explorer Compass comes with a built-in ruler to help accurately gauge distances during a hike.

Camping food

Sticking with another Christmas classic, why not pick up some tasty food packs as an outdoorsy gift?

Hitting the trail is a lot easier with the right Camping Foods to give you energy, and are a great reason to gather round a campfire in the evenings. At Winfields Outdoors, we have a fantastic selection of quick but delicious meal packs for any outdoor adventure.

Choose from Wayfayrer meals like chicken tikka, chilli, and spicy sausage pasta to give your loved ones a tasty start to their next camping trip. Or, pick up a selection of Adventure Food packs, including plenty of pasta options, and even chocolate mousse for pudding.

These are a fun and budget-friendly addition to any Christmas stocking, and a great gift for friends and family (without the stress of knowing their clothing size).

Warmers

As any winter explorer will tell you, keeping warm is the ultimate challenge, especially if you’re camping and not moving about and generating more heat –  which is why we think one of the best on of the best Christmas gifts you could pick up this year is some hand or foot warmers.

At Winfields Outdoors, we have a great selection for you to choose from – like this multi-pack of Haago warmers. With this pack, you can give several hand, toe, and body warmers that can be stuffed in pockets or slipped into a pair of shoes to keep your loved ones (and their extremities) toasty in the cold, winter weather.

Gifts for walkers

Gifts for walkers

If you find it hard to pick the best gifts for the walkers in your life, you’ve come to the right place. We have plenty of options for you to choose from to suit any budget – and walking style – this Christmas.

Walking shoes

Of course, the absolute essential for any walking enthusiast is a great pair of walking shoes to carry them through their adventures. At Winfields Outdoors, we have one of the best walking shoe collections in the UK, chock full of products from leading outdoor brands.

Take the Regatta Women’s Holcombe IEP Low Waterproof Walking Shoes for example. With plenty of underfoot cushioning, and a combination of ISOTEX and Hydropel technology to create a waterproof outer layer, these are an ideal outdoorsy gift for the women in your life this Christmas.

Or, why not explore our very own Kesmere Walking Shoes? These are specifically designed to offer excellent protection from the elements whilst remaining comfortable and wearable all day – and your loved ones will look great too with our stylish finish.

Neck gaiter

When it comes to choosing outdoorsy gifts for walkers, a neck gaiter is one of the best go-tos. Unlike normal scarves, neck gaiters are a tube of fabric, which means you don’t have to worry about loose ends, or the wind unravelling the scarf and letting the cold air in.

They’re also a great fashion accessory – the bright colours and design of the Buff Coolnet UV Neckwear can help to make a statement whenever and wherever it’s worn. Plus, this neck gaiter is made from recycled materials, which is perfect for the eco-conscious gift giver this Christmas.

Neck gaiters are incredibly versatile – the tubular design means they can be worn as a scarf, hat, face covering, and more! The comfortable, functional Buff Merino Move Multifunctional Neckwear is made from cruelty-free merino wool for the ultimate softness on the skin.

Water Bottle

Whether you’re walking a trail for hours, or going on a short afternoon stroll, proper hydration is essential. The right Water Bottle can make a big difference on the trail, which is why we think a new one is the ideal gift for walkers this festive season.

Treat your loved ones to a new YETI Rambler 18oz Bottle with Chug Cap (532ml) for a versatile and high-quality water bottle this Christmas. The TripleHaul™ handle is strong and durable, making this an easy bottle to carry on the trail – and comes off with a simple twist when you want to drink. Plus, you can choose from a Chug Cap, or a Yeti HotShot Cap to convert this bottle into a travel flask for hot drinks on the go.

Or, for a more budget-friendly option, check out our Winfields exclusive TotalCool Insulated Water Bottle – 500ml. This insulated bottle will keep cold drinks chilled for up to 24 hours, and hot drinks for up to 12 hours – making it the ideal gift for walkers. Plus, you can shop for two with our Buy One, Get One Free offer (or grab yourself a sneaky Christmas gift!).

Walking poles

If you’re struggling to find the best gift for walkers in your life, have you thought about surprising them with a new pair of Walking Poles? These are perfect to help spread the weight of a backpack, and protect their knees from too much impact. 

The Fizan Compact Trekking Poles Pair for example, are the perfect, lightweight addition to any collection of walking supplies. At just over 150g, these light, adjustable walking poles are perfect for any enthusiastic long-distance walker.

Alternatively, why not pick up a pair of Trekmates Walker Shock Poles (Blue)? Built from aircraft grade aluminium, these walking poles are strong and durable for use over any terrain. They’re also easily broken down for quick storage on the go, or when not in use.

Map case

Even with the technological navigation improvements, sometimes you can’t beat a good, old-fashioned map. If your loved ones are a fan of exploring their local area, or want to get away from technology for a while, a map is the way to go.

So, what better way to show your loved ones you care than with a handy map case to keep everything safe and dry whilst they’re on the trail. This is a brilliant gift for a walker – either as a stocking stuffer, or as part of a bundle of new and useful gear.

Choose the Highlander Explorer Map Case to keep everything safe on a walk, and take advantage of plenty of extra pockets to store a compass, pens, and other helpful kit. Or, why not go the whole way with this Trekmates Dry Map Case, Compass & Whistle Set as part of your Christmas gifts for your outdoorsy friends this year?

Top tip – this would make a great Secret Santa in the office for that hard-to-buy-for colleague.

Gifts for hikers

Gifts for hikers

Struggling for inspiration this festive season? Explore our list of the top gifts for hikers to help you surprise and delight your loved ones with the perfect Christmas gifts this year.

Hiking boots

Offering supreme stability and additional traction on the trail, hiking boots are an essential part of any outdoor kit collection. So, why not treat your loved ones (or yourself) to a fantastic new pair of hiking boots from Winfields Outdoors?

Choose from top brands this winter and find the best gifts for the hikers in your life – whatever their age. Our Regatta Kids Vendeavour Waterproof Walking Boots are a safe and waterproof addition to their wardrobe, so they can splash around to their heart’s content in comfort and style.

Or, for the perfect stylish but functional outdoorsy gift for women, explore the benefits of our Sorel Womens Explorer Next Hiker Waterproof Hiking Boots. With a waterproof membrane, and soft fleece-lined tongue for maximum comfort, these hiking boots will make the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone.

Jacket

With winter comes wet, cold, and windy weather – especially in the UK. With this in mind, we think one of the best Christmas gifts you could pick up this season is a top quality outdoor jacket.

We have a great selection of cosy jackets that will make the ideal gift for hikers – like our Montane Men’s Protium Hooded Full Zip Fleece Jacket. Made with THERMO GRID fleece to help regulate your temperature, this is a perfect addition to a layering system, or as a stand alone jacket in the early spring.

If you’d rather prepare for the inevitable rainy season, we also have an excellent range of waterproof jackets for men and women that would suit any style and activity. The Regatta Women’s Birchdale Waterproof Jacket is a durable addition to any hiking wardrobe, and is an easy win as an outdoorsy gift for the women in your life.

Backpack

From snacks and water bottles, to extra layers, compasses and torches, any adventurer knows they need plenty of supplies – and a way to transport them. This all means that surprising your loved ones with a new Rucksack this Christmas could be the perfect way for you to spread some cheer and help them get ready for their next trip.

A good backpack is worth its weight in gold. For example, the Regatta Shilton 12L Backpack is a budget-friendly, well-designed backpack that’s perfect for any situation – from the daily commute to a weekend walk through your local area. This backpack is made from durable fabric, and has plenty of internal pockets to keep your snacks and kit organised and easy to find.

Alternatively, for something more tailored to the trail, Montane is one of the brands to watch. Their Montane Womens Trailblazer 16L Rucksack is specially designed with curved shoulder straps to fit the body better and provide a more comfortable carrying experience.

Thermals

Beat the chill this Christmas by buying your loved ones some new thermals to keep them cosy on their outdoor explorations. Thermals, or baselayers, are perfect for trapping air close to the body and helping to retain heat.

At Winfields Outdoors, we have a great selection of thermals for you to choose from this Christmas. Choose Klättermusen for a luxurious, specially-engineered thermal shirt that can act as both baselayer, or mid-layer depending on the weather.

If you’re looking for a thermal set as part of a Christmas gift, check out this Trespass Unisex Unite 360 Base Layer Set. With a high neck to protect from the wind, this comfortable thermal set is the perfect gift for hikers this winter to keep them warm and cosy on the trail.

Binoculars

One of the best gifts for hikers, birdwatchers, and other outdoor enthusiasts is a good pair of binoculars. Whether they’re on a short hike through local woodlands, or trailing up a mountain, binoculars are a wonderful outdoorsy gift for men and women to enjoy.

Our Summit Discovery 8 x 21 Binoculars With Carry Case are the perfect accessory for any hiker to see more of the world around them. The small and compact design means they’ll fit easily into any pack without taking up valuable space.

Gifts for campers

Gifts for campers

Whether they’re a fair weather camper, or ready to bed down outside year round, your loved ones don’t have to rough it this year with something from our collection of gifts for campers.

Tents and accessories

Obviously, a list of the best gifts for campers had to include a tent! Unless your friends and/or family are keen wild sleepers, a tent is absolutely essential for a successful camping trip.

At Winfields Outdoors, tents are practically our middle name – we have loads of shapes, sizes and designs to choose from depending on what you’re looking for. Even better, you can shop for Winfields Exclusive Tents for some of the best deals that you can’t find anywhere else.

We’re also the place for you to find any accessories to make post-Christmas camping trips even easier. Choose from a great range of windbreaks, guy ropes, lanterns and more tent accessories to find perfect, practical gifts for campers in your family.

Sleeping bag

Is there a better feeling than crawling into your Sleeping Bag and snuggling down after a long day of hiking or exploring the world around you? This Christmas, choose gifts that your loved ones can use for years to come – like a high-quality sleeping bag from Winfields Outdoors.

Treat someone special to a fantastic Vango Nitestar Alpha 300 Quad Sleeping Bag this Christmas. With extra width, and plenty of legroom, this is a great sleeping bag for taller campers and wriggly sleepers alike – who need plenty of space to stretch and move around in their sleeping bag.

Our double sleeping bags are a great gift for camping couples – or someone who wants extra space and material to fully cocoon themselves at night under the stars. The Sprayway Endeavour 350 Twin Sleeping Bag is durable, breathable, and has a square shape to maximise your space as you sleep.

Air beds

Surprise your loved ones with a brand new Air Bed this Christmas for the ultimate camping experience in 2024. Air beds are an excellent, useful gift for campers who want to enjoy the outside – but don’t want to (or can’t) sleep through the night on the floor. 

At Winfields Outdoors, we have a fantastic range of air beds to suit any budget. Our Regatta Flock Finish Single Airbed is durable and stable to help you have a great night’s sleep wherever you pitch your tent. 

Or, choose our Coleman Comfort Double Airbed for you and a partner. This model has two separate air chambers which can be inflated to different levels – so no more arguing about softness on your post-Christmas camping trips with this perfect outdoorsy gift.

Cool box

If your friends love camping for long weekends, or during festivals, then why not treat them to a Cool Box this festive season?

Choose from a great range of Yeti cool boxes – like the YETI Roadie 24 Cool Box, which is durable and dependable over long distances. This easy-to-carry model will keep snacks and camping ingredients fresh for any road trip or camping weekend. 

Or, pick up some Yeti Ice 450g Ice Packs as part of a bundle for shorter day or overnight camping trips.

Camping chair

Sinking into a comfortable Camping Chair at the end of the day is arguably one of the most satisfying parts of a camping trip – especially if there’s a campfire and marshmallows involved.

So, one of our top recommended Christmas gifts for 2023 is definitely a high-quality, durable camping chair. At Winfields Outdoors, we have plenty of options for you to choose from depending on your budget and style.

For example, you should consider picking up the Regatta Evogreen Isla Folding Chair. This classic design is dependable, comfortable, and even easy to pack up at the end of the holiday. Of course, if they’re more of a seat-scruncher, surprise your loved one with the Wild Country Elvaston Folding Chair – with its distinctive bucket shape to easily curl up within.

Gifts for dogs

Gifts for dogs

When we say treats for the whole family, we mean it – so why not take the time to pick from our great range of Gifts for Dogs this winter?

Collar

Treat your canine companion to plenty of Christmas gifts this year – like a cute new collar from Winfields Outdoors.

We have plenty to choose from; the Regatta Comfort Dog Collar is comfortable and durable, with a sturdy D-ring to attach a lead, and quick release clasp for easy removal; or maybe you’ll find the Regatta LED Dog Collar more useful, especially to spot your dog wherever they plan on roaming.

Coat

You need outdoorsy gifts for outdoorsy dogs, so choose Winfields to spread the love this Christmas by picking up a comfy new coat for your favourite four-legged friend.

For the ultimate in winter warmers, choose the Trespaws Artemis Quilted Dog Jacket with its super soft fleece lining and adjustable straps for maximum comfort. 

Or, help your pup stay clean and dry this Christmas with the Regatta Packaway Waterproof Dog Coat. This is the perfect accessory for a Boxing Day walk, and can simply be packed into your pocket when you don’t need it anymore.

Lead

New year, new lead! Why not pick up a new lead for your dog (but mostly yourself) this festive season to make your life easier?

The Trespaws Chester Hands Free Dog Running Lead is the perfect Christmas gift to start 2024 in style. With this, you can run with your dog hands-free, and even store small treats in the zipped pouch. Alternatively, buy yourself a new Regatta Extending Dog Lead to help train your puppy – or give an old dog more movement around a campsite.

Bowl

Just like you need a water bottle, you should always have a dog bowl to hand on the trail – so why not get a new one as a Christmas gift for 2023?

Robust, durable, and with a non-slip bottom layer, our YETI Boomer 4 Dog Bowl is the perfect outdoorsy Christmas gift for your most loyal companion. This is ideal for water, food, and treats out on the trail, or back at base camp.

Need something more compact? The Regatta Packaway Waterproof Dog Bowl is easy to fold and unfold when needed, and can be slipped into a pack alongside the rest of your camping or trekking gear.

Chew toy

Whilst most of the gifts for dogs tend to be for you as well (as the owner), there’s one thing that is exclusively for your pup – a new chew toy!

Choose from a great mix of chew toys here at Winfields Outdoors – including some that are perfect for camping trips around the world. Take, for example, the Regatta Glow In The Dark Dog Chew Toy. This design is perfect for late nights outside because you’ll always be able to spot your pup in the dark.

Or, pick up a new Ruffwear Turnup Rubber Throw Dog Toy; with a compartment for treats, and a slightly off-spherical shape designed to keep your dog on their toes as you play fetch at the campsite.
