If it's something that they'll use, brings joy, supports local or small businesses, is made to last or in a way that minimises its impact on the earth, it's Good to Give.

Here's our list of things from us and a few other companies we admire that we reckon are worth consideration this holiday season.

Goodthing from outdoor proviosions (from £6)

Outdoor Provisions Gift Pack (two of each of our all-natural energy snacks) - £27

Raptor Pin Badge (100% of profits from this go towards ending raptor persecution and comes with a beautiful postcard) - £6

Fresh-Air-Head Things Nalgene Water Bottle- £28 (or get one filled with Outdoor Provisions for £40)

3 month pre-paid subscription (for someone you really like!) - £69

If you select gift packaging for us, we won't wrap your snacks in tinsel but we will send it with no postage label on the box, so you can wrap it yourself (reused newspaper or old OS maps are good) and we'll include our adventure promise postcard - because a promise to spend time outside with someone is hard to top.

Good things from other campanies (under £40)

Atom Packs Roo VX (handmade, zero Waste waistpack) - £39.50

A subscription to Bikepacking.com's Bikepacking Collective (£68) or the Mountain Bothy Association Membership (£25)
