The research is clear; spending time in nature improves our physical, mental and social well-being. This holiday season, why not give your loved ones the gift of better health and happiness?
We put our heads together with Coleman Canada to come up with a list of gifts that make it more enticing than ever to get outside!
The adventurer’s survival kit
Do you worry about your favourite adventurer when they’re off exploring Ontario’s wild spaces?
Keep them safe on their ramblings with:
- 5-in-1 survival whistle (signal for help, and stay warm while you wait)
- Rain gear (because staying warm and dry is priority one)
- Emergency blanket (compact enough to fit in your back pocket!)
- Glow sticks (a light source that needs neither batteries nor dry matches)
(P.S. We love this gift idea. Keeping our visitors safe is a MASSIVE part of our job here at Ontario Parks. Big thanks, Coleman, for developing equipment that helps keep our visitors safe and sound!)
The starter pack
Did your family graduate from our Learn to Camp program this year? Why not wrap up a 2017 camping trip (bet you didn’t know that could fit under the tree!)?
If you’re starting your own collection of outdoor gear, you’ll likely want:
- a tent (we’re a fan of this 8-person fast-pitch tent…it even has storage cubbies!)
- a sleeping bag and air mattress
- camp dishes
- a flashlight or lantern
The holidays are about giving back as well as giving gifts. Did you know Coleman sponsors our Learn to Camp program, providing gear for Ontarians to try camping for the very first time?
The chef’s special
Got a friend who craves their culinary comforts? A family member who needs their daily cup of joe?
Make their life a little more flavourful with:
- FyreKnight propane stove (HyperFlame technology makes it easy to cook in all weather)
- 10-cup portable coffeemaker
- deluxe cooking forks (can you say: shish kebab?)
We’re already salivating…is it lunchtime yet?
The inner (or literal) child
Grab an outdoor game like:
A little bonus? These games all encourage Ontarians to pursue healthy activities outside. Coleman knows Healthy Parks mean Healthy People.
Pst! A little bird told us that Coleman has some stellar Cyber Week deals kicking off on Monday.
Why not get your shopping done early this year?
