Do you have a friend or family member planning to walk one of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimages in need of a holiday gift? Maybe you know someone that has already walked to Santiago de Compostela and would like to buy them a timely gift to bring back some of that pilgrim nostalgia? If so, make sure to check out these 10 quick gift ideas for past and future peregrinos. In this gift guide I provide a wide range of ideas, from small stocking stuffers to big-ticket items they’ll need on the trail. Happy holidays and Buen Camino!
1. Camino Mask
For at home or on the trail, make sure your loved ones are masked up this holiday season.
2. Camino Patch
Pilgrims love showing their Camino spirit with a patch on their backpack or jacket.
Headlamps can help with winter training and on early morning starts along The Way.
The Buff can cover the face, protect the head, act as a scarf, and much more!
5. Trekking Poles
Trekking poles can help save the knees and provide stability on difficult trails along The Way.
6. Trail Towel
A quick drying, packable, and lightweight microfiber towel makes for the perfect post shower companion in an albergue.
7. Sink Stop
Pilgrims need to wash clothes along The Way and don’t always have access to a machine wash. These plugs work well in sinks and baths.
Quality socks are a mandatory purchase when you’re planning to walk 10+ miles a day. I’ve worn Darn Tough for thousands of miles and swear by them.
9. Clothes Pegs
After washing clothes in an albergue, finding a drying rack can be tough. Clothes pins help with being able to peg clothes up outside the albergues.
10. Guide Book
If your loved ones are in the Camino exploration phase, help them start their research and planning with the much loved Brierley guide books.
