For me, gifts that contribute to an adventure are the best there are, because the thing actually ends up becoming a cherished memory. So this year, I decided to look back on a few of my favorite trips, and the goods that made them happen.
I love giving (and getting) delayed gifts — sometimes the anticipation of getting something cool is even better than actually getting it!
This isn't a traditional gift guide, and I'm not going to tell you exactly which bike or surfboard you should buy for someone. What I'm going to do is reveal my method to blow. someone's. mind. with the perfect, awesome gift.
