It’s that time of year, and we are all finding the perfect gifts for our favourite people. This can be a stressful experience, but remember to have fun and enjoy the gift of giving. The team at The Urban Gear has picked their top 5 favourite gifts to give or to receive.
Our first pick is a great gift for anyone who likes to unwind and relax. TTTM Compact Hammocks have tough flexible fabric that lovingly hugs the body while you relax. These hammocks are breathable and TTTM uses OEKO-TEX®Standard 100 nylon, a hypoallergenic fabric ideal for all hammockers with allergies and sensitive skin.
A must-have for making the hammocking experience easy to use, are Moon Straps to set up a new hammock. They are durable, tree safe, and it is compatible with a variety of surfaces including metal. These straps wind up in a handy carry case to easily carry along with the TTTM compact hammock.
Can’t go wrong with gifting our most popular sandal for both men and women. The team at The Urban Gear enjoys wide fit with soft straps and a supportive arch. The OluKai Ohana sandal comes in a variety of colours and the wide fit suits most feet.
No need to wonder if this gift will fit as it fully adjustable up to 101cm waist. Designed to stretch with you throughout the day, keep bottoms in place, and the low profile belt buckle doesn’t dig in while seated or get caught. Have fun with the colours and choose between different widths depending on who the lucky gift receiver is.
Socks are always a great gift to receive, as you can never have too many socks because one always seems to go missing. Smartwool No-Show Socks are designed to stay hidden but not hiding in your shoes. Merino wool socks wick away moisture to help prevent sloshy sweaty shoes, and The Urban Gear has a fun range of colourful printed men’s no-show socks.
Headlamps light up any Christmas morning and the Knog Bandicoot LED Headlamp is also a fun option for the tech-savvy. The lightweight, fully adjustable, USB rechargeable, 100 Lumens and it’s programable through the Knog app. This is a great gift for the late-night book readers, camping adventurers, evening dog walks, and all other brightening needs.
Fun little stocking stuffer for all ages. The Ticket to the Moon Frisbee is made from parachute fabric and has a sand-filled rim. The sand-filled rim means it flies true, won't hurt like plastic when it hits you, and won't run away if you miss the catch. Tuck the frisbee away in its pouch after a good game.
Been a long term fan of Olukai shoes. No socks required. The way you can also wear the heel down, makes it easy to put on if required to put shoes on quickly like trying to get out the door with your pet on a straining leash. Very comfortable and surprisingly stylish.
