Yurtel Christmas Gift Guide

07 December 2021

The first snap of cold. Crisp air that makes your face tingle. The magical alchemy of woodsmoke and frost. Winter has its own food and folklore made all the more special spent with boots crunching on frozen grass, warm cider in hand and marshmallows at the ready. We’ve pulled together a few present ideas to fall back in love with the great outdoors whatever the weather.

 

YETI Mug

Yeti Rambler 10oz Mug £24.99

Anything made by Yeti is bound to be good, especially when it comes to keeping things piping hot or extremely cold. This generous sized mug is loaded with top-to-bottom insulation and has some thoughtful design touches that make you want to use it even when rambling round the house. A comfortable handle, secure lid and dishwasher safe. A good entry level adventuring gift.

 

Holebrook Martina Knitted Windproof Sweater

Holebrook Martina Knitted Windproof Sweater £189

If you haven’t come across this Swedish outdoor clothing brand then you’re welcome. Sustainable, made to last and fits the Swedish saying that there’s no bad weather, just bad clothes. This wool blend sweater has a windproof lining and ribbed cuffs with thumbholes to keep you warm. You’ll be outdoors all the time.

 

Höfats Beer Box Fire Basket/ BBQ

Höfats Beer Box Fire Basket/ BBQ £129

Good camping kit should be able to multitask. Höfats are a German team of designers and engineers whose USP is to reinvent traditional products to create clean designs that are also a delight to use. This fire basket also moonlights as a drinks crate, BBQ, stool and wood box, with a useful bottle opener on the side.

 

Timex® + Finisterre Tide Watch

Timex® + Finisterre Tide Watch £195

Made by surfers for those that share a love of the sea. Finisterre is a British brand that makes functional and sustainable products in and out of the water. This new collaboration with Timex combines a built-in blue tide arm with some precision engineering so you can keep track of time and tide.

 

Sidetracked Subscription

Sidetracked Subscription £27.00

Sidetracked Magazine is an online and printed journal featuring a limited collection of personal stories of adventure travel, journeys and expeditions. The concept is simple: to capture the emotion and experience of adventures and expeditions throughout the world. This is not Conde Nast Traveller, but it is beautiful inspiration for when we can start exploring again.

 

Duke DUBVB Vintage Burst Mahogany Baritone Ukulele

Duke DUBVB Vintage Burst Mahogany Baritone Ukulele £129.99

Where better to go for your first ukulele than the Duke of Uke. Established on London’s Brick Lane in 2005 it was the UK’s first ever specialist shop. Easy to learn and light to carry it’s the ideal travelling companion and perfect bit of camping kit. This uke recreates the authentic styling of mid-century mainland designs and has a warm, open sound.

 

JBL Go 3

JBL Go 3 £34.99

There are more powerful speakers, but for portability, durability and sound quality these JBL’s are the ones. Although ultra-compact they deliver a surprisingly punchy bass. They have a 5-hour battery time and are completely waterproof and Bluetooth enabled.

 

Neals Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm 50g

Neals Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm 50g £40.00

Another great British brand that have been making award winning, sustainable products long before it was a thing.
