Looking for the perfect wedding gifts for active couples? Traditionally, newly married couples are given china, bedding, kitchen wares, and other items that seem to announce “congratulations, you are adults (with good china!).” These are wonderful items that are usually treasured and well-used. But for an active couple who prefers slightly different kinds of gifts, it may be less practical for them. For those who are always exercising, taking hikes, or going on big outdoor adventures, traditional wedding items might end up in storage, growing dusty with disuse–and nobody wants that. Wouldn’t it be better to give the sporty couple something they truly need, or that they would be head over heels for? We’ve compiled a list of items that we think would make delightful options below.

From camping to climbing, or even just going out for a run or to the gym, they’ll love getting outside with these thoughtful presents.
