Frugal Backpacker Asheville crew member, Maggie loves backpacking and spends her free time exploring the mountains of WNC with her dog, Sprout. She’s known for being the sort of awesome coworker who brings chocolate bars to work (thanks, Maggie). And is easy to spot around Frugal, as she’s usually rocking her signature combo of mary janes and funky Socksmith socks.
Her favorite stocking stuffers combine practicality with a whole lot of fun, and match her personality perfectly. These pint sized presents are sure to delight all the outdoor lovers on your list.
