Hey guys! Ben Fox here with Outside Magazine. With the holiday season in full swing, we just wanted to give you a few last minute stocking stuffer ideas. Here's a few of our editors' favorite picks.


So I wear trucker hats all the time in the winter, which makes them a really awesome gift. And I especially love these from Blowfish Designs with their sweet southwestern vibe. 


This is the YETI Brick bottle opener. Weighs three-quarters of a pound and I'm guessing it will be able to open a beer.


This is the Katadyn BeFree Water Bottle. It's really light you can see. And it's got a filter in the head so it's great for backcountry running or, you know, your grandma's eggnog.


This is the Western Rise Elkton Stretch Flannel. It holds warmth really well without being super bulky. And has a neat little pen holder in the pocket.


This is the Sog Sideswipe Mini. It's the perfect everyday carry knife. God F*** This is the Saag Sideswipe Mini Knife. It's the perfect everyday knife and you can shave with it.


Ready?! These are Truck Gloves. They are ski gloves. And they are warm, and they are pretty cheap.


So this is the Training Mask to simulate altitude. You're going to get really weird looks from your friends and family. But if you're living at sea level, this is how you do it.


How's the hair look? Good, okay. This is the Black Diamond Iota Headlamp. It's small but super bright. 


We have The North Face Denali One-sie. Really could be a stocking in and of itself, if you so choose. And, surprisingly comfortable. 


This is the Arcade Guide Belt. Tech Webbing. Super Stretchy. It will definitely keep your pants up. 


And for one of the most underrated gifts, a pair of socks. But these are the Smartwool Men's PhD Lite Socks which are some of the best ski socks on the market. 


The real secret to getting through the holidays is making sure there's one of these in your hand. We like this Pray-For-Snow beer from Ten Barrel Brewing Company. In fact, the only thing better than that is having another one. Cheers!
