Holiday shopping can be tough sometimes. Some people buy what they want, when they want it. Others can’t decide on what they want, whether it’s a brand or a specific product. We might not be able to help you with every person on your shopping list this season, but we can help you with gifts for those outdoor enthusiasts in your life.
Littlbug Camp Stove
The Littlbug Junior Stove is our smallest and lightest stove. The Littlbug Senior Stove is our largest capacity stove.
Both stoves are constructed with durable stainless steel, burn wood or alcohol, provide a stable and versatile cooking platform, and are uniquely designed to wrap around a sleeping pad for easy storage and transport. They work with most commercially available alcohol burners.
If any of the outdoor enthusiasts on your list already have a Littlbug stove, you can gift them a number of Littlbug accessories:
An excellent water filtration system will be valued by anyone who enjoys being outside. There isn't much accessibility to fresh water whether canoeing or hiking in the backcountry.
The Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter has a field weight of only 3 oz., making it a great piece of gear for trying to lighten your pack, just like when you choose a Littlbug Junior as your go-to camp stove. This water filter also makes filtering water as simple as filling a pouch and squeezing water into your mouth. No pills, no pumps, and no wait time.
The MSR Guardian Purifier physically removes viruses, bacteria, protozoa and dirt quickly and easily on backpacking trips and international travel.
A satellite communicator can undoubtedly provide you peace of mind when you're traveling in remote areas. It has SOS communications, tracking, and two-way messaging features. This is a wonderful present for someone going on a wilderness backpacking trip.
The Garmin inReach Mini 2 is a compact, lightweight satellite communicator enables two-way messaging and interactive SOS globally.
A National Parks Pass is a fantastic option if you're looking for a special present for an outdoor enthusiast.
Each pass covers entrance fees at national parks and national wildlife refuges as well as standard amenity fees (day use fees) at national forests and grasslands, and at lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation and US Army Corps of Engineers. A pass covers entrance, standard amenity fees and day use fees for a driver and all passengers in a personal vehicle at per vehicle fee areas (or up to four adults at sites that charge per person). Children ages 15 or under are admitted free.
No matter what gift you decide on for the outdoor enthusiasts in your life for the holidays this year, we’re sure they’ll love it!
Wishing you a happy holiday season, from Littlbug Enterprises
