Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (a.k.a “OR”) is the world’s largest outdoor sports industry gathering! This is THE place to find the hot products, the latest trends and see the “coming soon” goods from over 1000 outdoor lifestyle brands.

The trick for a Gift Guru is to find the fun, unique, helpful and ultimately “gift-able” products from the thousands on hand.

Here’s a few I’d love to share:

I’ve been a fan of Sanuk for years. Their creative, carefree and fun spirit shines through in all their sandals.

I’m loving their Spring 2012 line. Here are a few of the highlights for the ladies and the fellas.

For the Ladies

Starting from the left

The Bubbler (soft dots of foot massaging texture)

The Ibiza Kina (style points and flare added to Ibiza line)

The Ibiza Stitch

The Yoga Mat Wedge (slight step up from the Yoga mat)

The Yoga Chubby (yoga mat foam w/ crazy comfort)

For the Gents:

Starting from the left:

“That’s What She Said” Beer Cozy Sandal (w/ recycled tire tube toe piece)

Vagabond Spam (will ship w/ a fun Spam keychain!)

Anthem (Spring will offer Sanuk’s first laceups)

Rasta Pouch (made from Hemp and recyclable TPE)

Sometimes footwear can be high risk – low reward gifts. Sanuks are the opposite. Their fun laid back feel along with their ridiculous comfort make Sanuks gifts folks love.
