Give Gifts for the Great Outdoors for the Holidays

Life’s a Cycle

Parents can keep their resolutions to get outdoors, get fit and spend more time with family with the gift of cycling together. Performance Bicycle stores have all the gear and accessories to make biking a fun and safe family activity, like the Blackburn Multi Mirror ($19.99) so parents can keep an eye on little ones peddling behind. For night riding, there’s the NiteRider Sol.200 LED Headlight ($159.00) and the Ascent Commuter Light Set ($29.99), sized compact enough for kids’ bikes, to light up the path ahead and make it easier to spot kids’ bikes after dark. Performancebike.com.

Safety First

Give yourself and your kids peace of mind with the Isafe back pack, a super cool back pack with a built-in security alarm under the shoulder strap that sounds louder than a car alarm to ward off an attacker. Perfect for kids to carry to school, or for grown ups to carry to work, the gym, or wherever they are out and about. $59.99 and up. isafebags.com.

Boy I’m Warm

Boys will be boys, but they don’t have to be cold while they’re at it out in winter weather, with the North Face Boy’s True or False Reversible Jacket. This hi-tech reversible insulated jacket features both a Polartec fleece and nylon taffeta body, an EZ Zip zipper that zips at any angle, and Elastic binding at sleeves and at fixed hood to keep the chill out. $89.00. TheNorthFace.com.

Snow Boots for Her

Keep her tootsies toasty in Merrell’s Tempest High Snow Boots, great for partaking in snowy revelry in waterproof, warm comfort. The 200 grams of low-bulk insulation and insulating fleece lining keeps feet dry while the air-cushioned heel gives extra comfort. $140. merrell.com.
