Whether that special person in your life loves pulling on plastic or the feel of real rock, we have the perfect gift ideas for you. From organic hoodies to incredible hand-made climbing brushes, or a pair of extra comfy yoga leggings, we have you covered.
We’ve made a list of great climber gifts that range from only £25 to £60 - super affordable! We’ve all had a crazy year and it’s time to give some special gifts to put a smile on the faces of those we love. Alright, we’ve gotten a little sappy, but it’s time to get down to business with the 7 most perfect gifts for any climber.
1. CARABINER THERE Tee
A gift for: Any climber who loves a more-than-your-regular-t shirt. Someone who loves a bit of fun, but also loves climbing, and especially the 80s.
The Carabiner There tees are one of our favourite items for the holiday season. These fun throwback tees serve as a reminder of our climbing roots. Knowing where you came from is the first step to becoming the best climber you can be! A tribute to designer Jess Mor’s love of the 80s herself, as well as many heroines and heroes, such as Lynn Hill and Wolfgang Gulich and Catherine Desteville, whoever wears this tee will likely find themselves watching climbing videos and getting psyched in no time. Who wouldn’t want that?
Available in both Men's and Women's options, this jazzy 80s throwback has you covered!
2. BERTIE or DIPPY Chalk Bag
A gift for: the outdoor and indoor climber, especially boulderers!
The Bertie and Dippy chalk bags are a special gift for any climber, indeed. Maybe from upcycled and repurposed fabric, we designed these unique and incredible chalk bags to eliminate waste. By giving one of these chalk bags, you are helping promote a more sustainable world! Not to mention, they are just loads of fun and would make a fantastic gift. If you thought a chalk bag couldn’t have personality, you thought wrong!
The Bertie Barrel is the perfect gift for those bouldering obsessed friends and the Dippy chalk bag is every rope climbers dream gift! Best of all, as each bag is unique, so is your gift!
3. ALMA Zip Hoodie
A gift for: Your lady bestie who wants to stay warm in the gym, at yoga or while climbing.
The Alma hoodie is one of our favourite hoodies from this winter. The Alma is your classic all-round hoodie that any woman is certainly going to love. With our retro hand-drawn design, the Alma is a perfect gift because it is the kind of hoodie that you can imagine anyone wearing. In a subtle off-white Glacier color, it will match anything that your active woman wants to wear.
If you want to buy her the next thing she’ll wear everyday for the next year, the Alma is it! Great for colder and warmer weather, the zip thru makes this hoodie easy to wear, versatile, and super convenient! Plus, it’s from us, so it’s organic and has a fabulously fuzzy recycled inner, so while you give a gift, you’re giving into a more sustainable world.
4. GLITTER GOAT Climbing Brush
A gift for: Any and every climber!
Glitter Black or Glitter Green.
‘Some of the best brushes around!
I've always loved the Silly Goat brushes, the Davey Boy has served me well so far, but this Jack the Lad brush with a bit of added flair from 3rd Rock is just perfect for the hangboard sessions that we've been forced into!
All responsibly sourced materials AND a replaceable bristle head you say Well, why haven't you got one yet?’ - Shaun L.
What better gift than a unique and sustainable climbing brush? No matter what you climb, you need a brush!
5. SOLSTICE NEON Leggings
6. ZIPPY Sun Hoodie
A gift for: A man (or woman) who wants a snuggly hoodie for the gym, yoga or climbing.
If you’re on the fence about what to get your man (or gal), the Zippy Sun hoodie is a fantastic spin on a classic hoody. Ultra comfortable, but with some bonus sexy mountainscapes on the back (our classic SUN print). If you want to get something that they are guaranteed to love, the Zippy hoodie is your answer. With all the awesome features of a hoodie: a zip-thru, a soft hood and brushed snuggly on the inside body. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this climber gift.
7. EQUINOX Reversible Sports Bra
A gift for: Your fav woman who loves the gym, yoga and climbing
Last but oh certainly, not least! The Equinox is a perfect gift for a woman you know (and love) who is into any kind of sport. Whether she is into yoga, gym workouts or loves to climb outside, the Equinox is a great choice.
The Equinox is also safe when it comes to boob sizes (which is why we recommend), as it’s made for A-D cups. It’s also reversible, so really, they are getting two bras. If that doesn’t make it the perfect gift for your outdoor woman, then we don’t know what will?!
The Equinox is a top performing sports bra, made from sustainable recycled fabric that we adore. Soft, yet wicks away sweat, supportive yet full of fun with our exciting printed patterns, she will be thanking you for her Equinox for days, no, months, no, YEARS!
3. CAC Colab Tees
