We decided to compile the ultimate wish list for adventurers - the best gifts, the outrageous, the essentials.

It's winter, you're heading outdoors, you're going to want an amazing jacket! Planks Clothing Outerwear - Good Times Series Insulated Jacket is an amazing festive option. It comes in at €260, but worth the price tag. The jacket has been designed with a classic fit. Built using 2-layer RIDEdry15 fabric, combined with fully taped seams and an insulated quilted lining to make even the coldest days more fun. There are under arm vents to provide extra breathability on the warmer days. Shop all the colours here.

We plan on getting you kitted out head to toe in Christmas clobber so next is Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34. Shop them via Pro Direct Running for €113. What we love about these bad boys is that they're water resistant and in Ireland, we need that for rainy days! The updated, lighter Flymesh material has a water-repellent finish. Reflective elements all around the shoe help you stand out if you're running in the early morning or evening, and sticky rubber on the forefoot helps with traction on slick surfaces so perfect for winter months.

For the more price conscious, this is the ultimate gift for the adventurer in your life. A KeepCup. Made from fully tempered soda lime glass, the KeepCup Brew Cork Edition features a natural cork band. Made in Portugal using waste product from the wine cork manufacture, the band is beautiful to hold. Plus Design your own KeepCup colour combination and make your gift unique. KeepCup's mission is to encourage the use of reusable cups and helping to save our environment is a gift in itself. KeepCup start from €12.

We love a beanie on these colder days, and what better stocking filler than a cosy Tentree escape waffle beanie. The waffle knit style is the ultimate cold weather trend. Made with 100% cotton and accented with a cork logo patch, it is a beanie that is as progressive as it is practical. Our favourite bit about Tentree is that 10 trees are planted for every purchase made. Their aim is to plant 1 billion trees by 2030! These beanies come in at $32.

That's clothing covered, how about the camera enthusiast in your life. Instax is the perfect gift idea. They're compact and a fun to take away on any adventure. We love the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera from Harvey Norman for €79.

Nothing beats a stylish pair of hiking boots. We love these Cozy Carnival boots from Sorel. Insulated, waterproof and features a Sherpa fleece top cover, a fleece lining and an outsole with molded-rubber pods for increased traction. These are available from Great Outdoors. The price tag ain't bad either, €129.99.

If you're thinking of splashing out this Christmas, then Fitbit Ionic is the way to go at €350. This watch gives fitness guidance, health insights, music storage, apps but to name a few. It'll help motivate you and keep you motivated well into the new year.
