Still thinking of holiday gifts for the adventurous travelers in your life? Subscription boxes for the win! The thoughtful and unique gift option is a great way to give a gift for now and later without anyone knowing you made a last-minute purchase.


Specifically designed for adventure travelers, Nomadik delivers — literally. This active box is loaded with gear for the most daring travelers on your list. With a swath of options from the classic travel accessories they know they need or new gear options they haven’t heard of yet, Nomadik is filled with a little bit of everything.


Each box is loaded with $70 worth of products, but monthly subscriptions begin at $30 a month (when committing to the full year). Boxes are available for one month at a time ($32.95), six-month commitments ($31.25) or 12-month plans. Each month includes brands avid travelers already know, tools they need, survival guides that will scare you, trip inspiration for everyone and some fun surprises.


Nomadik subscriptions include outdoor gear delivery, customizable options to ensure the right accessories and travel tech for your adventurer, seven full-sized items in each box, fun rotating themes and the option to skip a month at any time.


Get the latest gear delivered to your (or favorite outdoor enthusiast’s) door with new brands and gear options each month. Boxes are hand curated by likeminded travelers and experts in the outdoor adventure field.


Take a peek inside this month for a better idea of your box subscription: Hero Clip, Survival Frog Pocket Stove, Nomadik Multi-Purpose Gaiter, Gear Aide Ni-Glo Gear Marker, Alpine Start Dirty Chai and Alpine Start Medium Roast Camp Coffee.


Each box earns subscriber points that can eventually add up to a free month.
