Searching for the ideal gift for a loved one or friend can be hard sometimes. Most people have everything they need already since it’s so easy to buy everything with just a click. Instant gratification is so ingrained within us that waiting is becoming impossible, so even if you overhear someone mentioning something they want, by the time their birthday, your anniversary, or Christmas has come around, it’s usually too late – they’ve already bought it for themselves.
This is why it’s a good idea to look for more unusual gifts. These are things that no one will have thought of, and they – hopefully – won’t have already purchased. It’s also unlikely that anyone else will have thought of the same thing, so your gift will be unique. These gifts are best linked to someone’s hobbies and interests, and if the person you are trying to buy for is an extreme sports enthusiast, there are many different options. Read on to find out about a few of them.
A Break Away
This idea is not one you’re going to want to consider for a mere acquaintance, but for someone very close to you, organising a break away that includes the chance to enjoy their favourite extreme sport will be both memorable and surprising. There are lots of options which could include:
- A trip to see stages of the Tour de France
- A mini-break skiing, along with a romantic ski chalet to go back to afterwards
- A journey from Lands End to John O’Groats (cycling, hiking, running, or whatever else appeals)
- Mountain climbing in the Pyrenees
- Diving at the Great Barrier Reef
You can make the trip as adventurous as you want to, and the more of their favourite sport they can enjoy, the more they will love it.
A Foraging Lesson
If your loved one is someone who enjoys getting back to nature, they are sure to go camping regularly. Whether you go with them or you stay at home and wait for them to return, food is going to be of great importance. So why not arrange for them to have a foraging lesson?
Foraging is the act of eating (and sometimes cooking) whatever nature has to offer, and learning how to do this safely is vital as many plants may look edible, but are actually poisonous. Learning how to live off the land is sure to be something that an extreme sports fan would enjoy.
A Subscription Box
No matter what you happen to be into, there is more than likely going to be a subscription box available that links to it, and extreme sports are no different. You can sign your difficult-to-buy-for loved one up to a subscription box and they can enjoy what these mystery gifts have to offer for six months or a year, depending on the plan you choose.
These boxes could contain magazines, energy bars, camping equipment, tools, and more. Choose a general one or one that is directly related to their particular extreme sport, and you will have found a gift that really does keep on giving.
