Buying destination wedding gifts can be tough enough, but when the guys get involved it can become nearly impossible! It’s relatively easy to get your bridesmaids or bride-to-be a nice W-Day gift, but finding something interesting and practical for your groom or groomsmen can be potentially complicated. With the rise in popularity of subscription box services, they’ve become a great gift idea for your spouse or bridal party. We’ve seen them offer everything from cook-it-yourself meals to bath products and candles. For the outdoorsy guy (or girl!) in your life, the Cairn subscription box just might be the perfect option! 

The brand strives to bring helpful gear and new brands to the attention of existing outdoorsy folks, but also to motivate more people to get outside and discover nature. Each box runs $25 and is carefully curated with 3-6 trail-ready products valued at between $35-40. Products could include anything from gear and apparel to food and skincare products. I myself own a decent amount of outdoor apparel and trinkets, having gone on a handful of pretty serious hiking trips. I received a sample Cairn box and was pleasantly surprised – there were clever, helpful pieces of equipment I didn’t know existed, but now find essential.

Outdoor equipment, apparel and the like can be surprisingly expensive, so gifting a subscription to Cairn could be a great way to help the outdoorsman (or woman) in your life build-up their active-equipment stash. To get an idea of what you might expect in a Cairn box, you get view past sample boxes on their website.  For more information, to subscribe yourself or set-up a friend with a monthly subscription, visit getcairn.com.
