Are you stumped when it comes to stocking stuffer ideas? Well, look no further! Here are nine small gift and stocking stuffer ideas for an Arizona Raft Adventurer. Please call the office at 800-786-7238. Don’t delay!
9) AzRA Sticker
Proudly show off your adventurous side to your friends and family with the AzRA sticker. Adhere this water resistant sticker to your bumper, water bottle, or anything you’d like. Measures 6“ x 4“.
8) AzRA Coozie With Carabiner
Fun and practical!What a novel concept. Again, perfect for your upcoming river adventure or as a souvenir. Coozies are often thought of to keep drinks cooler in the 100 degree heat. But they also come in handy April and October as insulation between your cold drink and your cold fingers. Clip it anywhere with the practical feature of an affixed “biner” clip.
7) Wooden Map Magnet
This rustic wood magnet features a map of part of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. Small but cute. Measures approximately 3″ x 3″.
A bandana is a great item to pack on a Grand Canyon raft adventure. They are so universal! Dip it in the river and tie it around your neck to keep cool. Use it to shade the back of your neck on a hike. Keep it handy to use as a hanky or napkin. Use it around your nose and mouth to block blowing sand at camp or dust on the Bright Angel trail. With two designs to choose from, you are sure to satisfy your recipient with one of these two stocking stuffer ideas.
The Grand Canyon National Park design highlights the entire length of Grand Canyon and lists many points of interest, flora, fauna and other general park facts.
The map design is a detailed topographical map of the eastern Grand Canyon and the Kaibab Plateau.
5) The Night Sky Star Guide
Identify prominent constellations and stars visible with the naked eye with this 6 panel folding guide. The sky over the Grand Canyon is clear and dark making it a perfect location to view and learn about the night sky. Not to mention, the canyon walls your view. The star guide is lightweight, compact and designed to fit in a pocket or pack. Ideal for field use by novices and experts alike.
4) Grand Canyon Playing Cards
Cool and educational! The deck features the iconic view looking downstream from Nankoweap granaries. In addition, each individual card has a photo and an interesting fact about the Grand Canyon. Learn about history, animals, plants and geology while you play your favorite card game. Designed by a Grand Canyon river guide.
3) Grand Canyon Calendar
Although a little big for most stockings, the Whale Foundation Yearly Calendar is a special small gift idea. Roll it up to fit it in a stocking or just give it on the side. The calendar is full of gorgeous images of the Grand Canyon and each month has a little bling too! The avid smartphone users love the QR code included with each month that features an audio clip. The clips feature Grand Canyon tales told by river guides. Give a distinctive gift and support a fantastic non-profit organization at the same time. Each purchase supports the Whale Foundation.
2) Hoosie Lube Skin Salve 4 oz.
This all-natural skin salve is great for soothing hard working hands and feet. If you hike, climb, ski, garden, bike, boat, or hunt, this is the salve for your skin. In fact, this salve is loved by many non-outdoorsy folks too because it is made with the natural and herbal ingredients of chaparral, lemongrass and tea tree. A little goes a long way and the 4 oz. container should last you a while. Made with love by Grand Canyon river guide, Kristin “Hoosie” Huisinga!
- Chaparral has antioxidant abilities and slows the growth of bacteria and other microbes.
- Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) essential oil kills microbes & decreases pain & inflammation.
- Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is known to inhibit microbial growth & to stimulate the immune system.
