For campers who also like good food, I love some of the options from Patagonia Provisions, especially the salmon. Great stocking stuffers! (Fun fact: Patagonia Provisions and Yardzen both have their offices in Sausalito!)

As an avid gardener, I’ve been dreaming of a high-quality compost system. My top choice: the Jora Compost Tumblers, which devotees describe as odorless, efficient, high-capacity, and easy to use! Plus, it’s the most attractive tumbler out there—I love the green color!

My wife and I spend a lot of time in our garden with our five chickens. To help with all of our watering chores, I want pretty much everything Eley makes. At the top of my list would be their 3-piece spray nozzle set. It’s on the pricier side, but the build quality, 10-year warranty, and spray pattern make this tool worth the up-front cost.

I live in San Francisco’s Sunset neighborhood, and all of my surfer friends are obsessed with these California-made boards. I’ll be getting this for the very lucky surfer in my life!

Want to bring a taste of the outdoors inside? Buy a bevy of these hanging planters and obsess over your houseplants all winter.

This is what I’m buying myself for Christmas…to camp from anywhere in my Subaru. The Luno Air Mattress saves on the hassle of packing a tent and is easy for road trips—wake up and go!

Recently, I have loved sitting by our outdoor fire pit sipping on Remrise’s hot chocolate sleep powder. It’s a sweet nighttime treat to enjoy as I wind down for the night!

Now that the sun sets so early, the GoSports Light-Up Cornhole Game Set is such a fun game to play with my family in the dark!

The Coleman Brew Insulated Stainless Steel Tumbler is an insulated cup for cold beverages: sweat-free design, spill-proof, integrated bottle opener on the bottom. Keeps drinks cold all day long! I have tried just about every travel cup, and this is by far my favorite.
