Do you know someone who loves visiting the national parks on vacation or who plans road trips centered around visiting the national parks? Then, these national park gifts may provide some suggestions for unique gifts for national park lovers. Our family started visiting the national parks when our youngest was about 3 years old. Since then, we try to visit national parks and monuments while on vacation to hike and learn more about the geology and history of our country. If you know a person like this, then check out some of these gift ideas for national park enthusiasts.
Gifts for National Park Lovers
I tried to select national park gift ideas that were unique, personal, and useful. Etsy and Amazon are great places to get inspiration about what types of things to buy as gifts for national park lovers.
National Parks Annual Pass
This is one of the perfect gifts for national park lovers! The America the Beautiful Pass is $80 for the year and covers the entrance fee to almost all of the national recreational sites in the country. You can purchase it at REI or through the NPS site. It is perfect for a national parks road trip.
National Parks T-Shirt
Some people just love T-shirts. These shirts from Etsy make great gifts for national park lovers. The National Parks Store is another Etsy shop I have used that has a wide variety of customizable options for women and men.
National Park Candles
If the national parks had a scent, it would be bottled into these candles. These national park inspired candles have a distinct aroma and last a very long time. I bought the Yellowstone candle last year, and it reminded me of Christmas time. I also purchased the Acadia one and it had a nice, clean scent. This year, I think I will purchase the Everglades one to remind me of home. Check out these amazing soy candles here.
