Why We Like It: Carry just the essentials when leaving the cabin.
What You Should Know: It’s on the smaller side, so they may find it challenging to tote more than a few things at once.
While it’s nice that puffy parkas have pockets, those aren't always big enough to hold everything someone needs when heading out for a walk in the woods on their cabin trip. Plus, it can be difficult to pry things out of tight spaces when wearing gloves or mittens. That’s why we like a sling—it’s like having an extra big pocket, and with the 1733 Waste Pouch, they'll get double since it has two compartments. They can pop a phone and a wallet in the quick-access zip pocket to be ready to pay for a hot cider and tuck their remaining essentials in the main compartment. It’s highly water resistant to keep gear dry, even in the snow, and the corded zipper pulls are easier to grab with gloves than tiny metal tabs. The adjustable strap can also fit around the chunkiest of winter coats.
The name aside, the 1733 Waste Pouch is not really for waste. It's called that because 1733 uses the fabric scraps—or waste—left over from the production of its other bags to make it, a fact that will please the Earth-friendly packer on your gift list.
Why We Like It: It’s stylish and warm in the cold.
What You Should Know: Larger users may have to order a size up.
When packing for a cabin trip, warm gear is essential. With a chance of snagging tree branches or a spark from the campfire, it may be necessary to look for something sturdier than a packable puffer jacket. That’s why we think the Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is a great gift idea for the cabin lover in your life. It will protect them from the cold and damp thanks to the sturdy materials: waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7-ounce sailcloth. Although durable, the waxed finish is softer than many other waxed jackets available, so they won’t need to break it in to start enjoying it. Plus, there's a soft fabric lining it, so it’s like having a warm blanket next to their skin. Then, there will be no worries about a scratchy feeling if they’re throwing it on over a T-shirt to step outside and listen to carolers.
We think the waxed finish only looks better with age, developing a patina as the color lightens where it’s marked to remind them of every cabin adventure over the years. We think they’ll be happy to unwrap this warm hug and think of you fondly as they wear it for years to come.
Why We Like It: Keep their ears warm with a soft, thick hat.
What You Should Know: Hat hair is unavoidable with a snug fit.
Whether it’s for hiking in the woods, holiday shopping, or sitting around the fire, the classic beanie is always in style. When you want a gift idea for someone taking a cabin trip, you can’t go wrong with the Huckberry Beanie since it’s available in more than a dozen seasonal colors. Made with a blend of acrylic, wool, nylon, and spandex, it holds tightly to keep their head warm, even in blustery winter winds. We love the cute Huckberry logo on the brim; the tree reminds us of annual outings with family and friends.
Huckberry worked with a Japanese manufacturer specializing in knitwear to develop this classic style, so it will last for seasons to come. We like the Charcoal colorway since it’s likely to go with any coat or sweater your loved one is rocking. If you can’t decide on a hue, though, get two! They may need one at home and the cabin, after all. Huckberry gives a discount on two, and you’ll be sure to gift them something they’ll treasure every time they step outside.
Why We Like It: They won’t slip on icy slopes thanks to the grippy sole.
What You Should Know: You may need to go up half a size for a better fit.
Tromping through cold, wet woods is not the place for a pair of breathable sneakers. Instead, give them these Naglev Combat WP boots to keep their feet warm and dry throughout their cabin trip. The elastic ankle band provides a secure fit and helps keep moisture from seeping in, whether from snow or a mud puddle. The Kevlar on the outside offers ultimate durability, and the natural rubber outsole will grip the trail or the icy sidewalk. Inside, the wool sock liner will keep them warm, and the leather and coconut fiber footbed cushions every step.
Although they’re great for hiking, they’ll also look great at the local pub or ski lodge. And with cable speed laces, this gift idea will help them get to the fun faster without struggling to find the right fit. There is a break-in period, as with other hiking boots, though taking a few walks around the block will have them ready to hike Pike’s Peak, or the local sledding hill, in no time.
Why We Like It: It maintains body temperature with self-regulating fiber.
What You Should Know: There’s no drawstring to tighten the hood.
Your loved one may start chilly when leaving the cabin for a morning hike to catch the sunrise, though they may end up sweaty after they get moving. They’ll have the gear they need for their next cabin trip when you give them the Proof Tech Sweat Hoodie, which has a technical fiber called 37.5® working some temperature-regulating magic. The blend of polyester, rayon, and spandex is specifically designed to maintain their core body temperature while managing the relative humidity of their skin. So when they need to stay warm, this soft sweatshirt will feel warmer, yet it will wick away moisture to cool down when things heat up.
The four-way stretch is super comfortable and flexible, so they won’t feel constrained when cross-country skiing or stretching up to snap the perfect picture of a cute squirrel high in the tree. When the wind picks up, they can pull up the hood to stay warm, and the front pocket is perfect for stashing a phone or warming hands. And with the dark neutral colorway, they’ll look great whether they want to hit the lodge for lunch on the way home or head out to watch a game.
Why We Like It: Sweats are great for relaxing around the cabin.
What You Should Know: They’re ultra-casual and best suited to loungewear.
Rest and relaxation is the reason for many cabin trips, so give them the gear to match their mood. When they pull on the Proof Tech Sweats, they’ll be warm and comfortable for a fireside game of checkers or a casual dinner with the family. The same 37.5® fiber used to make the Proof Tech Hoodie is in these pants, so they won’t overheat when the backyard football game runs into overtime. Instead, the sweat will evaporate as quickly as the charged atmosphere between Uncle Joe and Cousin Tim.
These are a great gift idea because the elastic waistband and adjustable drawstring make finding the right fit a breeze, and a zippered back pocket will keep their phone or wallet from falling out when they head out for an after-dinner stroll. Although these are sweats, the tailored fit gives them an updated look that won’t look out of place around the cabin.
Why We Like It: It’s easy to slip these comfy slippers on and off.
What You Should Know: The slide style looks more like a slipper than a shoe.
After a long drive, they’ll be happy to pull off their travel shoes and slip into Greys Outdoor Slide. This is the perfect gift idea for a cabin trip since they have grippy soles to keep them grounded on slippery tile floors or damp pavement when they have to run out to the road to flag down visitors. Made with a temperature-regulating wool blend, they’ll keep toes toasty without leading to sweaty soles.
They’re super comfortable, whether worn barefoot or paired with snuggly socks for cold winter nights. Your friends and family won’t have to worry about injured feet if they trip over things as they navigate unfamiliar rooms. Even if they bump into the rocking chair (who put it there anyway?), the stub-proof toe box will save them from getting hurt. They run true to size, so sneak a peek at their sneakers before you order, and don’t be surprised when they wear them to greet you at the cabin driveway—they won’t want to take them off just to go outside.
Why We Like It: It keeps cabin keys organized so they can hang by the door.
What You Should Know: It could pop off a belt loop since the hook doesn’t completely close.
They’ll love grabbing the keys for their next cabin trip with this gift idea—a new keyring. There’s something special about having a dedicated ring just for the cabin. It means they’ll never forget to grab the key to the she-shed if it’s near the front door. With the Craighill Offset Keyring, it’s easy to keep track of the keys they need: twist open the lock and slide them on. There are no jump rings to pry apart, so their trip won’t start with frustration.
The ring itself is a stylish stainless steel nod to the carabiner. Keys lock into the bottom of the S shape, while the top leaves a tiny gap so they can loop it onto their belt loop, bag strap, or hook by the door. When they need to share a key with a renter or a repairman (or you!), it’s easy to slide off the one they need or add another when a new snowmobile ends up at the cabin.
Why We Like It: They can bring a drink on a winter walk or to the campfire.
What You Should Know: It’s nearly a foot tall with the flask and tumblers.
There’s always a reason to celebrate on a cabin trip, and what better way to toast the beautiful scenery than a drink shared with family and friends? When you give that special someone the 9. High Camp Flasks Firelight 750 Flask, they can bring a bottle of wine or liquor to share around the campfire. The flask is made of durable stainless steel, so it can withstand a few drops and bumps along the trail, and it includes two tumblers for sharing. They attach magnetically to the top and bottom of this sizable vessel, releasing with ease when it’s time for a pour.
The double-walled vacuum insulation means it will keep a hot toddy toasty for cold winter hikes, and a silicone seal prevents leaks. The bottle is hefty, though, so you may want to gift them a daypack with a great water bottle pocket to carry it in, as well. It’ll be worth it, though, when they’re enjoying a sip while roasting marshmallows and each other around the fire or taking in a holiday fireworks show.
Why We Like It: It’s great for wildlife lovers.
What You Should Know: It’s a bit heavy for casual packers, so it’s best for enthusiasts.
Part of the fun of a cabin trip can be all the wildlife surrounding their home in the woods. If your loved one loves spying on the critters living all around them, help them sneak a peak with Huckberry x Nocs Provisions Waterproof Binoculars. Whether they’re searching for a bird on their life list or a white-tailed deer, they’ll be able to spy them from far away thanks to the magnification, which is the equivalent of a 400 mm superzoom camera lens.
The weatherproof and fog-proof case is easy to hold, even with gloves, thanks to the nonslip grip, and it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes if they do drop it through the ice covering a forest creek. A lifetime warranty covers manufacturing defects for life, so this is a cabin gift they can use for years to come.
Why We Like It: Give them warm, woodsy vibes in their drink.
What You Should Know: Premixed flavors may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
When warm aromas of maple, wood smoke, and spices fill the air, it’s easy to get in the mood for a cabin trip. That’s why we like the 11. Runamok Smoked Old Fashioned cocktail syrup. With pure maple syrup, pecan wood smoke, spices, and the flavors of orange and cherry to infuse their bourbon, they can feel warm from the inside out. After all, the smoky flavor of the pecan wood will remind them of a warm fire long after it’s gone out.
They don’t have to be mixologists to make a great drink with this syrup. It’s a ready-made Old Fashioned without having to tinker with additional ingredients—just add bourbon! Since it’s so easy and tasty, we think this is a gift idea that will have them toasting you into the new year (if it lasts that long).
Why We Like It: It’s lightweight and won’t take up much space if you don’t need it.
What You Should Know: If they’re flying to a cabin or mountaintop rental home, they can’t bring this in their carry-on bag.
Cutting fishing lines, shaving small branches for kindling, or opening packages of hotdogs: there are plenty of reasons why someone may need a small knife at the cabin. The CRKT Scribe is a four-inch fixed-blade knife that’s lightweight and easy to carry. The blade doesn’t fold in, though a cap pops on and off to protect their pocket. The glass-reinforced nylon handle is durable and easy to hold, whether trimming branches off a wreath or cutting loose threads off a T-shirt.
If you opt for this gift idea, the cabin lover in your life can hook it to a pocket or belt loop with the included clip to be ready for anything that may arise on their next cabin trip, whether it's cutting present packaging or prying open a sticking window.
Why We Like It: The woodsy aroma will remind them of the cabin, even at home.
What You Should Know: Scented gifts aren’t for everyone.
Stepping outside on a damp morning, as the fog clears and the dew evaporates, the scent of fresh pine needles crackling underfoot brings about a calm like no other. Evoke that feeling of a cabin in the woods with our next gift idea, the 13. Outdoor Fellow Coastal Forest Scented Candle, even if their place is far from the forest floor. When they light it, the scents of pine, eucalyptus, fir, and pinecones blend with cinnamon and other spices for an aromatic reminder of the great outdoors. They’ll get a warm, cozy feeling of fun times spent together every time they take a whiff, and since the natural coconut blend wax candle burns for 40-50 hours, they’ll have plenty of time to reminisce on their next cabin trip.
This 8-ounce candle is in a reusable glass jar that fits in with any decor, from cabin kitsch to modern. They’ll feel even better about your gift after learning that Outdoor Fellow donates 5% of the proceeds from every candle purchase to The Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit organization with a mission of creating parks and protecting land for healthy, liveable communities. What a nice gift for Mother Earth!
Why We Like It: When the cabin doesn’t have an ice machine built into the fridge, they can bring their own.
What You Should Know: This won’t mellow their whiskey like water-based ice.
Whiskey on the rocks, anyone? While a well-stocked bar isn’t complete without ice, not every cabin trip includes a kitchen stocked with high-end appliances. Sometimes that fridge is older than they are and lacks an ice machine, and making ice can be messy if there’s no flat spot to freeze it among the ice cream, pizza rolls, and other treats tossed in the freezer. Not to mention, the taste of well water or the water softener can impart notes in their drink that they’d rather not add.
When their whiskey, bourbon, or Scotch is perfect straight out of the bottle, the 14. Viski Glacier Rocks Soapstone Cubes (Set of 9) will chill it to the ideal temperature without diluting the flavor. This set of nine soapstone cubes will freeze in four hours and comes in a little pouch to keep them together in the freezer. Even though they’re made of stone, they won’t scratch the fancy glassware grandma bought in the 50s, so it will continue to last for generations.
Why We Like It: It's a comfortable place to stretch after a long walk.
What You Should Know: It weighs 5 pounds, so it’s pretty heavy to haul to the studio.
When a cabin trip brings out their inner weekend warrior, they’ll need a place to stretch those muscles. A walk in the woods, climbing over rocks, hopping over streams, and limboing under tree trunks will be great memories of their time at the cabin, though the muscle aches that arise the next day may not be the friendliest reminder. The Reversible Yoga Mat 5mm from lululemon is sturdy enough to take outside for al fresco yoga.
It’s also a great gift idea since it has enough cushion to protect their hands and knees from feeling the sticks and stones beneath them as they breathe deeply in that fresh air. Or, they can slide it under the couch to be ready for stretching after a sunrise hike on the trail. The top layer absorbs moisture, which is handy for hot yoga in front of the fireplace, and an antimicrobial additive keeps the mat fresh so they won’t be greeted with strange odors the next time they open the door on their next cabin trip.
Why We Like It: The collection comes in small containers, so it’s easy to pack one for the weekend.
What You Should Know: The spice they love the most may run out quickly.
What’s a better gift idea for a cabin trip than food? Whether it’s lazy mornings spent chatting over coffee and pancakes, lunch by the lake, or something sizzling from the grill, cabin trips are made for cooking. Spark their senses—and kitchen creativity—with the 16. Spiceology Ultimate Rub Collection (12 Mini Rub Jars). They’ll get out of the cooking rut they've settled in, and they’ll have you to thank for taking them on a culinary trip around the world.
Although the collection includes a dozen 1-ounce jars, they won’t take up much room in small cabin kitchens when they bring one or two favorites on each trip. Spiceology grinds its mixes in small batches, so they’re always fresh and flavorful. With flavors like Jamaican Jerk, Korean BBQ, and Oh Canada, they’ll always have something fresh to flavor their steak, roast, or chicken, and they may even find a new flavor combination to bring home. Tandoori Glory, anyone?
