The Sony rx100vii is a compact camera that fits in your pocket but can also produce professional-quality imagery without requiring additional lenses.


47. Portable Charger

An Anker portable charger.

Nowadays, most intrepid explorers will be using their phones to navigate, research, and take photos on the go, as well as communicate.

Ensure your loved one can keep their phone and other devices fully charged on their travels.

  1. Wow! I had no idea there were so many national park-themed gifts out there. This list is quite comprehensive! We bought the America the Beautiful National Park Pass in early October and used it on our trip to the Mighty 5 Utah National Parks, and it was definitely well worth it. I don’t think I could ever go without that pass again! It saved us tons of $.

    I’m so bummed I didn’t know about that National Park Passport though!! What a missed opportunity – I’ve been to lots of the national parks (I think we did 7 just this year), and I’ve never collected the stamps before. Guess I’ll be needing to go back then I suppose? πŸ˜‰.

    Thanks for all the recommendations! Xx Sara

    • Yeah we’ve saved a ton with our National Park Pass too. You really don’t have to visit many parks to be saving money, it’s such great value. It does seem like you have a good excuse to go back to collect some stamps!

    I didn’t know that National Park gift cards were a “thing.” That’s cool.
