The Bike Commuter
If you have a dedicated bike commuter on your list, check out the latest invention on the market. It's a combo bike lock with a headlight at one end and a tail light on the other. The Lemurlock incorporates the necessary bike light and bike lock into one simple design that can mount at the front and rear. It's available for purchase starting November 15 through a Kickstarter campaign, so feel good for supporting that entrepreneurial spirit while you are gifting.
While winter can seem to last forever for some of us, give your camper a gift they can look forward to using when the weather gets warm. This lightweight hanging hammock chair can easily hang from a tree branch or sturdy object, and is easy to pack for the next camping trip. You can then adjust the position of the footrest and recline to get comfortable. The attached drink holder and built-in book pockets ensures you never have to get up while you are relaxing on your camping trip.
The Ski Bunny and/or Backcountry Shredder
We all have one on our list! This awesome orbital backpack allows you to easily flip it around to access without ever taking it off. Not only does the Wolffepack make it easy to grab your GoPro or cell phone, it also has an emergency whistle, glove-sized handles and goggle pocket. Your snow enthusiast is going to love this gift!
The Avid Paddler
With paddle sports like SUP and kayak becoming more and more popular, give your paddler the ability to track their exertion doing the sport they love. The Motionize Paddle allows users to track their distance per stroke, strokes per minute, stroke length, number of strokes per session, and ratio between technique efficiency and heart rate, among other stats.
Hiking enthusiasts know all-to-well how hard it is to find socks that will last a full hiking season. And, your hiking enthusiast will absolutely love these lightweight "Indestructawool"multi-sport socks by Smartwool. The socks have the power of Merino wool for breathability, moisture management and temperature regulation with the long-lasting quality of Smartwool.
Some of us may wear yoga pants all day every day without doing one single downward-facing dog (guilty), while some of us are at the studio every day "namaste-ing." Either way, we can all appreciate yoga pants with color and style. These Terez yoga pants make a great gift for that lady on your list who wants to up their casual-wear game or stand out from the crowd at the studio.
Vela is all about fun and adventure!
