To offer or to treat yourself, for Christmas, a birthday or simply to please, here is a small selection of essential items for those who like to browse / discover the great outdoors, and find yourself in the heart of nature whether aboard a van or trudging on foot to the top of the summits both in summer and in winter.
A list of gift ideas for travelers and / or hikers who like to explore and be in the great outdoors, in short for those who love adventure!
The idea is not to talk about anything but to inspire you to find useful products that will please outdoor and / or vanlife lovers. Life in a van, hiking, bivouac, areas that speak to us ...
Most of you will find here of the products we use and others that make us clear the eye. Objects, utensils, clothes but also inspiring works.
We are not big buyers / consumers. Since we live in a van, we ration what is in our closets.
First of all because we don't have a lot of space and then quite simply because we need little and we favor targeted, quality material and when possible, multifunctional.
So when it comes to buying something, we always wonder if we really need it.
And we invite you to do the same. Before buying a new or used product, ask yourself if it is really useful, in order to avoid cluttering up the cupboards and ending up throwing the said gift away ...
(Everything that concerns art and culture obviously does not fit into this logic).
So there you have it our special big and small adventure gift guide and by the way a good part of what is in our cupboards!
Cooking, washing, doing your laundry, maximizing the space of your little houses on wheels, even if we all have our own little habits, there are tasks and concerns common to all those who live or travel in a van. Here are some ideas to make your life easier and also to enjoy it!
On the road, the unforeseen are always in order, here are some very practical accessories to satisfy and / or save your desires for adventure!
For those who like to get lost on mountain trails or other, whether for the day or several days. And then you don't need to like hiking to equip yourself with a water bottle!
Over time, we realized that having little but good (for yourself) equipment was important. Our crampons were used during our winter in Canada, to discover a glacier in Alaska, to tread on the sometimes icy trails of the Alps and much more. A backpack compact enough to be stored in our van but with enough volume to accompany us on our various adventures and technical clothing to be sure to make the most of it!
Live and seize the moment to never forget it and make it last.
Practical equipment and accessories when you love photography and adventure!
Maps, stories, inspiration to plan your next adventures or even escape and dream for a few lines ...
We hope this list will help you find some inspiration for your future gifts. But what should not be forgotten is especially the moments that you and your loved ones will spend together (and outdoors). And that is the kind of present that costs nothing, always pleases and that we do not forget, whatever the time of year!
The most beautiful gift is the memory you build ...
