by Diane Spicer

Meet Hiking For Her's Diane

What's up with this current giveaways page?

An even better question:

Who doesn't love free hiking stuff?

Especially when it's high quality outdoor gear, hiking clothing, fun camping and hiking products, books, and anything else that makes your trail time safer, happier and more rewarding!

Check out Hiking For Her's current giveaways for your chance to win the best #hiking gear, outdoor clothing, books and fun stuff for the trail. #freebies #hikingforher #outdoorgiveaways

But why give away
all this good hiking stuff?

Why not?!

Life is short, trails are not, and it's just more fun to live life with a glass half full perspective.

Hikers, campers, backpackers and snowshoers need a lot of gear and knowledge to stay safe and happy in the outdoors, and that's where these giveaways come in.

Yup! Hiking For Her has decided that giveaways should be a regular part of life on this website.

There is already a bounty of free information here for you.

  • So why not some physical gifts as well?

It's a great way to showcase the outdoor products I believe in, support, and use myself.

Female snowshoer with full pack, trekking poles and winter outerwearBig stuff, small stuff, it takes some high quality outdoor stuff to get you out here! Even better: when it's free.

Offering monthly outdoor giveaways is also a way for Hiking For Her to say thanks to you for being a part of our vibrant, awesome hiking community.

Current giveaways:
what to expect

You never know what you'll find on this page.

That's half the fun.

The other half is a chance to be selected as the winner of something to wear, something to read, or something to try out on the trail.

Let's keep things simple

Your email address is all that is required to enter the current giveaways.

It will be closely guarded by Hiking For Her.

So closely guarded that it will be used only to:

  • ask for your physical mailing address if you are the winner of a physical product, 
  • send you HFH related announcements about new fun stuff every once in awhile.

Bookmark this page and check back frequently so you don't miss these giveaways.
