Gifts for outdoor lovers

There’s nothing quite like it, (despite its unpredictability for us Melbourne dwellers), when the weather warms up, getting out and about in the great outdoors is an unbeatable feeling. However, finding that perfect gift for the outdoor and hiking addict in your life needn’t be an uphill struggle. Here at Merrell Australia, we have curated all the must have products we think the outdoor lover in your life will be racing to the door to try out this holiday season. Put a smile on that hikers’ face with our choice of gifts.

Gift ideas for Trail Runners

Our Antora range of trail running sneakers for women are great for warmer weather. The Antora will ensure you’re comfortable and capable when they make their miles wild on trail. Available in a range of colours and styles, and featuring Gore-Tex membrane to keep water out, a protective rock plate and Vibram rubber sole to protect your feet on ambiguous terrain. The increased Floatpro foam in the midsole also means that the wearer will have a protective run no matter the surface.

For men, we recommend the Trail Glove range, designed to mimic the shape of a human foot, making it feel like they’re wearing nothing underfoot. Ideal for a whole variety of terrains.

Outdoor gifts for water lovers

If your loved one loves nothing more than splashing about in water in their outdoor adventures, then our range of water activity shoes are a great gifting choice.

The best-selling Hydro Moc is fast becoming a timeless style, versatile enough for casual wear and adventures. Using advanced construction techniques, this easy on, easy off shoe is more durable than others of its kind - for days spent in and around water. It also looks great teamed with a pair of baggy cargo pants on off-duty days for when they want to rock that Gorpcore fashion.

Available in a variety of styles including running shoes and sandals, there’s a Moc style for everyone’s tastes.

For women who love water shoes, we love the Cedrus sandals, with comfortable and adjustable rugged straps, this performance sandal with grippy sole is versatile and adaptable for long days spent outside around water. Great for walking and water play alike

Clothing gifts for outdoor lovers

Whether they have a hike planned for Wilson’s Prom, or they’re planning an epic Three Capes Track Hike – make sure they have some epic outdoor clothing packed and ready. With unpredictable weather any time of year, and cool evenings, even on the hottest of days, our range of cosy Jackets and Vests for men will keep them rugged up on the trails and beyond. Whether it’s a padded vest or a comfy fleece, gifting them something from our range of men’s outdoor clothing will put a smile on their face.

Our women’s rainshell jackets are designed to keep out the elements and keep her dry for her adventure. Constructed from fully recycled materials, it’s designed to be packable so it can be whipped out at a moment’s notice when the rain clouds hit.
