88Nine's 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide: day 9, gifts for festival goers

On the ninth day of 88Nine's 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide, we celebrate the festie in your life with ideas that are both fresh and functional.

Check out the gifts below.

Nectar Sunglasses, $40

Shades are a must for any festival goer. AndNectar sunglassesare a favorite for their price, quality (polarized) and lifetime warranty. And how cool is this? For every pair of sunglasses sold, Nectar donates to The Bee Cause to help repopulate honeybee hives across the United States.

Cotopaxi Fanny Pack, $29.95

A beginner or extreme festival goer can both rely on the trusted fanny pack. They seem to never go out of style. And Cotopaxi is a brand that creates cool, functional packs, purposefully. All of their products are made under fair, sustainable working conditions and come with a lifetime guarantee. 


Camelbak Rogue Hydration Pack, $52

For those responsible festival goers who remember to drink their water (or need to remember), consider an upgrade from the fanny pack to a hydration pack. You can fill it with water, and also have a place to store your wallet, keys and a packable jacket. We recommend a pack that includes a 1.5L-3L water bladder.


Solar battery charger, $23.95

By now, most people have a portable battery charger, but this could be a handy backup option for those that will be out in the sun. Attach it to a backpack or put this on the dashboard of a car and it’ll be ready if you need a quick charge.


Ticket to Eaux Claires 2018, $166

If the festival lover in your life hasn’t been to Eaux Claires, this will be the gift they never forget. And if they’ve been before, the gift will need no explanation. Created by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Eaux Claires far surpasses the traditional music festival. Each year the festival gathers a group of music lovers to unplug and unwind along the banks of the Chippewa River with unique music and art aplenty.

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash, $10

This pocket-sized hand wash thoroughly cleans and moisturizes hands without needing to rinse with water. Skip the cheap sanitizer and stay squeaky clean, and smelling fine with this stuff.
