Top 10 Walking Sticks as a Gift

Wednesday, 11 December 2019  |  Paul

Many of us find ourselves stuck when trying to think of presents for our extended family. Walking sticks make a thoughtful, classy and non-controversial gift for more people than you might think. 

Who Do I Know Who'd Love a Walking Stick? 

You might think walking sticks are most often used for mobility reasons, however they have many other uses. Perhaps your friend or family member is an enthusiastic walker who could do with some more support, or they could be filled with nostalgia for elegant antiquarian fashion. Maybe they're a sports fan who spends long periods of time standing up outdoors, or they could just be a fan of good, natural craftsmanship. If you're not sure what to buy someone, a walking stick can make a wholesome and thoughtful present. 

What Does a Walking Stick Symbolise as a Gift? 

In the past, walking sticks were once used as a way of concealing a gentleman's sword. They have connotations of power, authority, strength and reliability. Purchasing a walking stick as a gift is a great way to make someone feel important, while at the same time suggesting you're there to support them along their journey. We've selected ten of our favourite walking sticks that may make that ideal gift for somebody you love.
