@jthull thank you for reaching out!
This is a great question and will vary depending on the employee you ask. Something I would appreciate receiving would be an outdoor instructional class. Try selecting an activity that the employee is trying to improve on, or something completely new! You can find the classes/experiences here. Also, a gift card is always welcomed. 😀
Hope this helps!
@jthull this is such a hard question to answer specifically!! As @REI-FelipeG said, the answer will completely depend on the employee - what activities they're in to, what they want to get in to, what gear they already have, etc. If you want to give us more context, we can make more specific recommendations! If not, you probably can't go wrong with an REI gift card - I know that's always on my Christmas list!
