Inside: Outdoor gift ideas your teens will adore. 

The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, you know what this means… Summer is coming!

I’m hoping you read that with the game of thrones theme song playing in the background. No, but seriously, this is one of my absolute favorite times of the year.

Getting outdoors with my family, spending time with mother nature, and of course celebrating all of our summer birthdays!

People who were born in the summertime were destined to spend a lot of time outdoors. In fact, I have never met a person who was born in the summer months that didn’t have a deep appreciation for being outdoors. How about that.

So of course outdoor-themed gifts are a go-to.

If you are on the hunt for the perfect outdoor gift for your summer teen then look no further. I’ve made a list of over 37 of the best outdoor gift ideas that will put a smile on your loved ones’ faces and a new memory in your brains forever.

Outdoor Gift Ideas for teenagers

Of course, not all summer-born people are exactly the same…they just all seem to love being outdoors. There is a wide range of outdoor activities that you can be a part of, so the gift-giving possibilities are endless. Perhaps they enjoy camping and eating s’mores, then a camping kit and a s’mores maker are right up their alley. Are they more of the sporty type? Then perhaps some lawn games or a basketball hoop is more their speed.

Take a moment to think about the person you are getting this gift for. What are their hobbies, what is their absolute favorite thing to do when outdoors, and what kind of outdoor stuff do they need?

After you’ve sat on that for a minute, see if you can narrow them down into one of the categories below.

  • Adventurous
  • Sporty
