Have a guy in your life that lives and breathes adventure? If he’s not jumping out of a perfectly good plane, he’s hiking, biking, or doing extreme sports. If he’s an avid outdoorsman, he might seem like he has everything.
But if he’s got a birthday coming up (or you want to get him a “just because” gift), we’ve got suggestions. Read on for gift ideas for the adventurous guy in your life.
I recently re-watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. In case you’ve been living under a rock, A Year in the Life is the revival of the original WB show. It follows the lives of Rory and Lorelai 10 years after we last saw them at the end of season seven…when Rory had just graduated from Yale.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life doesn’t portray millennials in a flattering light. Lorelai’s neighbor, Babette, tells the girls about the “30-something gang”… “a group of kids, all about your age. They’ve been to college, then out in the real world, and it spit them out like a stale piece of gum. And now they’re all back in their old rooms, like [Rory].”
For those of you who are new readers, I post an update every few months that shows how we’re doing on our debt snowball and other life goals. A couple years ago, I shared a post called What to Do When You’re Feeling Stuck. In this post, I discussed my three year goals for 8 main categories: finances, health, career, faith, relationships, fun, environment, and service.
My hubby and I love to have board game nights with our friends. We’re currently on a three year spending ban while we pay off our massive student loan debt, so finding free things to do for fun is important for our sanity.
In addition to being free, game nights are so much fun. Honestly, I have a much better time staying in and playing games with friends than I would if I went out and spent a bunch of money. Here are my top ten favorite games for a board game night.
Personal finance is about choices. Many frugal people continue to splurge on a couple of things that are truly important to them – because they’re frugal in most areas, they can afford to splurge on things that they value. Frugality doesn’t have to mean giving up everything you love – if, and only if, you can afford to buy those things.
I love blogging. I enjoy inspiring others to make smarter financial choices and it’s amazing that I can make a little side income through this blog. This money goes straight toward the debt snowball on my student loans.
If you’re new here, I post an update every couple of months that details how we’re doing on our debt payoff and other goals. I also include some highlights of the months and what I’ve been reading and watching…because life is about more than just reaching goals.
As a Type A person (with debt), I easily get caught up in trying to be productive all the time. It’s important to relax once in a while 🙂
Debt has become so normalized in our culture that we no longer believe it is possible to live without it. Whether we’re aware of it or not, we are constantly bombarded with messages about how to live a “normal” life.
These messages come from a variety of different sources – advertisements, schools, our parents, relatives, friends…our entire society promotes the idea that debt is normal.
