The Ultimate 2021 Gift Guide

My gift guide for 2021:


  • It’s better for the environment and better than any so-called “green friendly” label
  • You probably don’t need another new gadget
  • Outdoors, a passion about minimizing the clutter of life often seems yet another way to acquire more stuff. Don’t need it? Don’t buy it. Replace what needs replacing instead.

Do not be in a hurry to spend money on new inventions. Every year there is put upon the market some patent knapsack, folding stove, cooking-utensil, or camp trunk and cot combined; and there are always for sale patent knives, forks, and spoons all in one, drinking-cups, folding portfolios, and marvels of tools. Let them all alone”

How to Camp Out  by John Mead Gould, 1877
