This thoughtful gift is compact enough to carry along with them on a walk or simply meditate before (or after) a relaxing stroll.

Keep the walker in your life safe in the great outdoors with these beautifully handcrafted bells.
Whether they live in bear country or not, these bells will alert other wildlife (and walkers) of their presence on the trails.
3. Copper Compression Socks
Give life to their legs with this practical gift. Compression socks improve blood flow, improving muscle recovery and reducing swelling in the legs.
This is an amazing budget gift for walkers, as the price you’ll pay won’t even come close to the benefits they’ll reap from wearing these socks.
4. Walking with Glenn Berkenkamp
I absolutely love this book (and they will too!) Help them discover the joys of mindful walking with this eye-opening and inspiring book.
The user guide features a walk for every mood and emotion so they can get the most out of every walk they take (one of the best gifts ever!)
5. Personalized Shoe Tags
They’ll get not one but two personalized metal shoe tags with this custom gift.
You can put their name on one and some inspiring words on the other (or whatever you like!) Make them something special that will go on every walk with them.
6. Super Fresh Powder Protection
Because sweat and chafing happen, this is one of the best walking gifts.
It goes on as a lotion and dries as a powder to help keep all their “parts” (wink) dry and fresh as a daisy!
7. Winter Reflective Beanie
Keep them warm and safe with this cozy and reflective beanie. The brim is weaved with high-quality reflective yarn making them stand out when any light is shone on them.
This stylish gift is great for those who love to walk in the cold weather and do night walks.
8. Audible Membership
For people who love to walk and read, give them the gift of unlimited audiobooks. With 1000’s of titles to choose from, they’ll never get bored!
Not everyone likes listening to music while walking, but listening to a good book might just be the long walk they’re looking for. This is one of my favourite presents for walkers.
9. FitBud Step Counter
Help them get their steps in (and some fresh air) with this highly-rated step counter. Created with simplicity in mind, this counter works straight out of the box (with no apps or setup to worry about.)
With a simple click of a button, they can reset and start tracking their next adventure.

This pack also converts into an over-the-shoulder bag and has just the right amount of room for their phones, wallets, keys and more!

If you know a walker who seems to have everything, never fear! There are plenty of novelty gifts out there that are sure to put a smile on their face.
For instance, why not get them a foot spa? After a long day of pounding the pavement, they can come home and relax their tired feet in style. Or how about a nifty dog bowl bottle? It’s perfect for walkers who love taking their furry friends out for a stroll.
13. Toilet Bombs
Getting out for regular walks (aka being physically active) can also help keep other things regular (wink, wink.)
Keep things fresh with these delightful little toilet bombs. They’re non-toxic, biodegradable and septic-safe. This is one of the best gifts for the whole household!
14. Foot Spa
Treat their feet after a long walk with this highly-rated foot spa. It collapses for easy storage and even comes with a remote control (how lazy can you get!)
This heated spa will help improve blood circulation and soothe sore, achy feet. It’s also a gift for the person who won’t have to massage their feet anymore (maybe that’s you?)
15. Camera Phone Converter
How cool is this thing!? This “must-have” gift converts any phone into a retro-style camera with a unique shutter button.
There’s always something to take photos of (even when you’re out for a quick walk,) so why not make it fun with this cool converter?
16. Outdoor Safe Smart Wristband
This fancy wristband stores important medical information (like medical conditions and allergies) and allows users to stay in touch with their loved ones.
Out for a walk? They can simply let everyone know they’re “ok” with a simple tap on their smartphone.

Complete with cutlery, dinner plates, cotton napkins, wine glasses, a bottle opener, salt n’ pepper shakers, a chopping board and a waterproof fleece blanket.
And with a large (insulated) compartment for food, they’ll be able to keep their food from spoiling.
20. Shoe Lights
Light up their walking path with these weatherproof, rechargeable lights.
Forget headlamps or knuckle lights; with 360-degree visibility, these are the only lights they will need to stay safe.
21. Dog Bowl Bottle
If they like to take walks with their dogs (or they’re dog walkers), then this is a nifty little gift for them.
It allows both owner and pup to drink from the same source on the go (no, not literally.) Remove the attached dog bowl from the bottom and fill er’ up (you’re welcome, dog walker!)
22. Bluetooth Hat
The hat allows them to listen to music (without having to wear additional headphones) and provides important sun protection for their face.
If they’re anything like me, they like to hear what’s going on around them. That’s why I love this Bluetooth hat.
They can listen to some tunes and still be fully aware of their surroundings (it’s one of the best gifts for solo walkers!)
23. Superfruit Slam
Who doesn’t like snacks!? Fuel their walks with these nutrient-dense nut and fruit bars.
With 350 calories, 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fibre, they’ll have everything they need to power through even the toughest walk.
Oh, and I should mention that they taste really good (I can’t say that about many meal replacement bars!)
24. Acupressure Recovery Socks
Get them a wearable foot massage for their tired, sore feet this year.
These recovery socks stimulate nerves, enhance circulation, soothe sore feet and help reduce fatigue when standing for a long time.
All they have to do is wear them on a 30-60 minute walk (to start.)

Before You Go…
Maybe these gifts for walkers are a little too tame for them. Do you know an EXTREME walker who’s into rucking? Maybe a piece of rucking gear would be a more suitable gift for them!
We have plenty of other gift ideas to help you find the right thing for everyone on your list; maybe you know some rock climbers?
