It’s no secret that I’ve explored more of the U.S. this year than ever before. Between my outdoor gear and Alex’s new favorite seasonal pieces, we’ve put together a gift guide for that special adventurer in your life! These are a few of our favorite things 🙂 Oh! And my favorite outdoor retailer Backcountry is having a Pre-Cyber Sale right NOW until 11/25 with up to 40% off Best-Sellers (my favorites linked at the bottom of this post)! They gave me a discount code for y’all so be sure to use LESLEY15 for 15% off which is good for your first purchase. Backcountry has also partnered with Klarna to offer an interest-free payment plan option for customers. They know gifting during the holidays can add up so I personally love this initiative!
You can’t go wrong with this classic fleece for the man in your life. Now that we’re in the middle of Fall, my fiancé doesn’t take this off. The recycled fleece construction is breathable yet warm, and the oatmeal heather color pairs with anything!
Another classic jacket you can’t go wrong with gifting. Its water-resistant fabric sheds light rain and wind, plus you can’t find a sleeker look than this for his everyday pursuits!
This hoodie is one of my favorite pieces that Alex owns. From workouts to base layering, this hoodie continues to be so versatile through the season. With UPF 50+ technology, anti-odor treatment and quick-dry fabric, this top layer has it all.
From trail runs and cold ski days, these pants provide lots of warmth as well as stretch for easy movements. Their Polartec Power Stretch construction remains breathable no matter the activity. Alex ordered in size medium, and they’re currently 25% off!
I definitely influenced Alex in purchasing this pair of trail shoes just because he’s witnessed how much I love my own Salomons! These are light, stable and super grippy for any kind of terrain.
I don’t know about y’all, but I *love* a man in a beanie. I truly feel that they look good on everyone…cue the heart eyes. This beanie is eco-friendly, warm and can fit under a helmet.
I’ll admit: I’m terrible at water intake. I recently got this rambler for Alex that also doubled as a gift for myself 😉 I know we’ll take it on our travels for sustainability purposes and increased water intake (even though I know he’ll try to put coffee in here due to its double-wall vacuum insulation!). A win-win!
My favorite season is flannel 🙂 Patagonia knew exactly what they were doing when they created this shirt – it’s warm, it’s made with 100% organic cotton for a soft yet durable wear, and it screams cooler weather. Any other flannel fanatics will love it, too! I bought in a medium for a looser fit.
If you’re in the market for a fleece, this one is a solid choice (and currently 70% off!). I ordered my regular size in a small which would’ve been a great choice…but my growing pregnant belly won’t last much longer in it! I hope bump and I make it through the winter with it because I’m seriously obsessed with this piece!
This sherpa just feels like a warm hug. I raved about it so much that my mom even ordered it! I love winter white in pretty much everything, and it’s also available in black! It’s also lightweight yet insulating – perfect for cooler temps. Currently 40% off!
From fall into winter, I always carry a lightweight insulated jacket with me that easily packs down into my suitcase. This nano puff jacket is water repellent and has a recycled ripstop exterior. I’ve received SO many compliments when wearing – the regen green color is stunning!
I’ll be wearing this scarf with every outfit this season because the bouclé texture feels super luxurious against my skin, and I love everything that Barbour touches.
I gotta have my trail running shoes. My old pair recently bit the dust, so I was excited to give ON Running a try. Comfort is the most important quality to me, and these babies do NOT disappoint. The waterproof and breathability factors give this shoe bonus points, but not as much as the multi-patterned soles. The level of control while hiking is perfection! I only wish I had sized up half a size for an even better fit.
I couldn’t resist purchasing this pair of mama bear socks as soon as I saw them 🙂 I’m pretty sure they’re ski socks, but now they’re house socks, too. Mid-level cushioning adds comfort and reduces impact stress…perfect for this pregnant woman!
If this isn’t the perfect cozy knit beanie for exploring winter wonderlands, I don’t know what is. The wool blend gives breathable warmth in chilly weather, and I love the added faux fur pom.
I’ve taken this pack around the world and back again. It comes in lots of different colors, and I love the size – perfect for any day trip into the mountains or on the trails. It’s hydration-compatible thanks to an internal slip that fits an Osprey Hydraulics reservoir (not included), also doubling as a good spot for a smaller tablet.
I cannot begin to adequately express my love for these Goodr sunnies. If you’re an avid viewer of my IG stories, you’ve most likely seen me post about them. Perfect for sports, outdoor adventures, running errands, ANYTHING. My sister gave me a pair for Christmas last year (seriously such a good gift, y’all. Hint, hint!) and they have been such a hit. A steal at only $25!
