What outdoor traditions do you participate in during the holidays with your kids?

A solstice snowshoe trip? New Year’s Eve cabin stay? Trekking deep into the woods in search of the perfect Christmas tree? What outdoor activity do you participate in each year during the holidays? Here are some great outdoor gifts for kids to help make your tradition this year even more special.

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

We go hiking for Thanksgiving and Black Friday (black friday we usually pick up trash at our local hiking spot) We usually camp for Easter. 

Christmas...hit or miss. We usually get outdoors. 


Christmas Tradition: Due to all of us being adults now, living about 1,500 miles apart, we exchange REI E-Gift Cards, shop at our respective REI Store or REI Website, then later text photos to each other of what we bought for ourselves. 👍


We do a lantern hike for the harvest moon... 

We also go camping for Thanksgiving/Black Friday.
