Gifts That Give Back

These park-themed gifts from NPCA and our partners provide fun ways to give while supporting America’s favorite places and our mission to protect them.

For the park stewards in your life…

For the sustainably minded park lovers, how about a reusable item or two to help them keep plastics waste out of our national parks? NPCA’s I Arch Parks camper mug, Protect our Parks tote and stainless steel water bottle are all great options to ensure we’re all doing our part to leave our parks better than we found them!


For the trendsetters…

To jazz up anyone’s outfit, Pura Vida’s Protect Our Parks bracelet is a great accessory — plus, 5% of the purchase price is donated to NPCA!


For any park lover’s stocking…

Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? Our partner, Parks Project has you covered with the National Parks Advocate and Parks Adventurer sticker packs, Trail Crew beanies, and much more. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from each of these products sold helps NPCA engage and empower new park advocates in park protection efforts!


For the park champions…

Wear your support for our parks on your sleeve (literally). With designs like the Protect Your Public Lands tee, Wake Up to Climate Change tee or Canyonlands Perspectives tee — and, for the colder months, the I Protect Parks hoodie and NPCA Heritage Logo and National Park Advocate crewnecks, NPCA’s ParkShop has lots of comfortable, colorful options.

For the history buff turned bourbon aficionado…

From seventh-generation master distiller Stephen Beam, Limestone Branch Distillery’s Yellowstone Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon was originally named after Yellowstone National Park and first created in 1872, the same year Yellowstone was designated the world’s first national park. Today, $1 from every bottle sold (up to $30,000 annually) is donated to NPCA to support our national park protection efforts.


For the youngest generation of park advocates…

Start the next generation of park advocates’ love for the parks early with NPCA’s ParkShop apparel options for children. With styles like our National Park Advocate tee, Fireflies tee and baby onesies, there are plenty of options to showcase your little ones’ love for the parks.


For the bookworm in your life…

No national parks gift guide would be complete without “National Parks Conservation Association: A Century of Impact,” celebrating the first 100 years of NPCA’s legacy and impact! You can find the book online through Cardinal Publishers Group (use our discount code PARKS20 for 20 percent off!) or through retailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


For the person who is hard to buy for…
