Looking for a unique gift idea for an active friend or family member? Check out the classes at REI. The retailer doesn’t just sell outdoor clothing and gear—it leads workshops around the country in activities like snowshoeing, backpacking, and kayaking. I love that there are sessions for beginners, too, so you can help someone find a new hobby no matter her age. Check ‘em out at rei.com/outdoorschool/ and check a gift or two off your list!
