Get inspired with our list of perfect gift ideas for nature lovers.

In this article you will find winter Valentine's day gifts ideas:
Is your valentine constantly dreaming of the next expedition? Look through his or her outdoor or camping items and see if you can spot something that may be missing; a useful accessory, some technical gear, or a must-have he or she has been eyeing. To help you, think about your most recent nature outing: did you hear complaining about uncomfortable boots, an old camping mattress…etc.? Was there a crucial moment where a headlamp, an hydration pack, or a quick-dry towel was needed?
Maybe he or she would like to try out winter camping! In this case, see all the gear required in our Winter Camping Guide.
How about binoculars, a GPS, a multi-purpose knife, a lantern, or candles? All these are great gift ideas for the adventure-seeker.
The one you love likes going out in winter, but prefers to do so in style? Trust your instincts and choose high-performance and useful pieces of clothing items like a lightweight sleeveless vest, wrinkle-resistant shirt, stretch pants, warm sweatshirt, or super-insulated coat.
All you’ll have left to do is pick out a key piece from the vast selection of clothing that is suited just as much to the outdoors as it is to the cottage. If your sweetheart is environmentally-conscious and/or loves buying local, why not select an item from a Canadian brand?
He or she is really into winter sports? Why not offer a new pair of high-performance snowshoes, ice cleats for hiking, walking poles, or even cross-country skis? As for accessories, there are also gaiters, heated insoles, and even waxing kits! For sports clothes, a winter sports fanatic can never have too many pairs of merino wool socks, base layers and other technical clothing. One thing’s for sure, his or her eyes will light up thinking about how soon he or she can get outside and try it out!
What’s a romantic gift for someone who loves technology? A solar-powered charger, a water-resistant camera, a sonar, a smartwatch or fitness tracker that calculates heart rate are some options! Practical for any kind of sport, these technological treasures will be sure to charm this person.
Those who appreciate good food and the pleasure of cooking generally also enjoy doing it outdoors. Pans, grills, utensils, coffee pot and other camping accessories designed to prepare a great meal in the outdoors, even in winter, are very creative ideas. Here’s another surprise idea: a smoker! Portable or electric versions are available, and this tool will cook up some amazing, tasty meals that you’ll be able to enjoy together.
You’ve just recently added a little one to your family? Give yourself a gift as a couple to carry your baby during each of your activities with a jogging stroller, a baby carrier, or a set to take your baby along on skis. We’d be willing to bet that the thought of these special moments spent as a family will make your loved one beam!
