Christmas is just around the corner! And if you, like me, have barely done any of your Christmas shopping, you probably just exist in a mild state of panic right now. Life comes at you fast and the Holidays always seem to sneak up on you! 

If you’re struggling to come up with outdoorsy gifts for folks in your life, don’t worry, at Moab Gear Trader, we’ve got everything you’ll need for outdoor recreation holiday gifts. 

Stocking Stuffers 

Stocking stuffers are my favorite part of the holidays. It’s a fun opportunity to get little presents for the people you care about, for some reason these are so much more satisfying to purchase than big-ticket items. 

Hand Warmers 

If the person in your life loves being outside, there is no scenario where hand warmers won’t get used. Put them in your pockets, your chalk bag, your shoes, your sleeping bag, or your gloves!

For the climber in your life, they can always use tape and or chalk. It’s a hassle for climbers to buy, but they love having it around. It’s cheap, and easy to pick up, and fits perfectly in a stocking!

Looking for something more substantial than a stocking stuffer? We got you. 

Gift Cards

The easiest way to make sure you get someone something they love is to let them pick it out themselves! Particularly if your outdoorsy friend needs new boots or other technical gear that should be tried on first. Just ask our friendly staff about gift cards when you walk in! 

Snow Shoes

New to snow? Snowshoes are a great way to get out into the mountains! They also make great gifts for the hikers in your life. We have new and used snowshoes for purchase at Moab Gear Trader. 


Help the resort skier in your life take their first steps towards getting into the backcountry! Buying skins for your loved one can help get them excited about skiing in the La Sals this winter. 

Avalanche Gear

Speaking of backcountry skiing, keep the people in your life safe by buying them avalanche gear! We have shovels, probes, and beacons, from brands like Black Diamond, Arva, and Pieps. 

Warm Weather Clothes

Traction Devices 

Particularly relevant for hiking in and around Moab right now, traction devices can help make your weekly hikes more secure. The north-facing slopes all winter will be slick with ice, purchase some traction devices for the outdoorsy adventurer in your life.
