If you’re like Berty and I, we surround ourselves with company who love the outdoors. We spend a lot of our time in tents, on the road, or hiking a new trail chatting about life and getting to know one another. We like to think that spending time outside is how we make some of our best friends! When it comes to giving gifts, we look for items that will enhance their experience in nature. This could be as simple as keeping warm with a hat, or as relaxing as a hammock to enjoy on a journey.
