Valentine’s Day Gear Gifts For Women Outdoors


With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s high time to get 2021 off to a good start by giving your daughter a gift she’ll love. While the flowers and chocolate are nice, they’re also incredibly cliché when there are superior options if you’re reorienting yourself outdoors. For the girl who isn’t afraid to get dirty, here’s a list of Valentine’s Day gear gifts that she’ll be happy to use on your next trip to the outdoors.

For the Waterwoman: the Billabong hooded towel

While there are a number of surf ponchos on the market, most are designed for men, which means an excessively oversized fit. The Billabong Hooded Towel was created specifically for water ladies and features a feminine tie-dye pattern to complement its comfortable construction. Made from heavyweight cotton, the towel includes a front pocket and hood for extra warmth. If your daughter struggles with post-surf chills or needs a more streamlined changing system, the hooded towel may be right for her.
