Featuring the OS Peak District map and made in the Peak District from breathable and moisture wicking technical microfibre, a Peak District Kids snood is perfect for the changeable weather that the National Park is notorious for. They are both warm in winter and cool in summer.

This snood is sized for children aged 4+.  Wear it as a ninja-style bandana, a hat, a scarf, or a face covering on exceptionally windy days. There are so many different ways to wear it, and I’m sure your little one will change it multiple times on their walk!

3. Peak District Kids Walks Log Book

The Peak District Kids Walks Log Book provides 100 possible walk entries (that’s a walk a week for almost two years) and kids can record their total distance by colouring in the hiking boots in the back pages.

Seeing their collection of walks logged in one place over time will bring such a sense of achievement, and what a wonderful memento for years to come.

4. OS Peak District PACMAT (compact family picnic blanket)

Click here to purchase

For any outdoor loving family, a compact picnic mat is an essential item. Whether you’re hiking in the hills, off to the beach, or pulling over for a picnic on an epic road trip, it’s always handy to have a picnic mat to plonk your behind on.

Now there are a lot of picnic mats to choose from, and I suppose you could just use a blanket or towel. But for us, we always travel light and so we need a picnic mat that is compact, yet big enough for us all to sit on. Add in durable and waterproof material that is machine washable, and it’s a winner for us.

The compact, waterproof picnic mat – PACMAT – from Rubbastuff ticks all these boxes and we adore their PACMAT which features the OS map of the Peak District. A rather unique Peak District gift!

You can read our full review of the PACMAT here.

5. Mountain line art of the the Peak District

From £17.95

This mountain line art is a selection of the beautiful hill tops and escarpments of the Peak District with their corresponding height. 

Printed on luxurious 300gsm paper (a lovely thick paper!) with high quality ink to prevent fading, and available in a selection of sizes to best fit your interior requirements (A4, A5, A3).

6. Tales from the Trig Points

Click here to purchase

Aimed at 7 to 12 year olds, this beautiful children’s story sprinkles a dusting of magic over one of the Peak District’s most visited locations, Dovedale, and introduces us to the world of Trignomes. What are Trignomes? Well gnomes that live in the Trig Points of course!

7. Custom made OS Map of the Peak District

From £7.99
Click here to purchase

An Ordnance Survey map is an essential item for anyone planning a hike in the Peak District, whether it’s a short family hike, or a longer multi-day trek. Annoyingly, the OS Leisure Map series splits the Peak District in two. So you need the OS Explorer Map OL1 for the Dark Peak and OS Explorer OL24 for the White Peak.

However, on the Ordnance Survey website, you can create a personalised OS Landranger Map that covers the area you need! Plus, by personalising it, it feels all the more special.

Evoke memories of a Peak District woodland walk with this Peak Forest Natural Soy Candle, hand poured in the Peak District; “fresh fir needles fall among aromatic white cedar and musk, with a wintery whisper of citrus”.
