In honor of National Park Week, we put together a list of our favorite national park merchandise. So if you’re as national park obsessed as we are, you’ll love these items for yourself. Otherwise, they make great gifts for the national park lover in your life. 

The best part is that proceeds from some of these items will go to educational programs for the national parks. So you’ll be showing your support for the parks while also getting some awesome merch. Win win!

Disclosure: If you purchase any of the products on this page, we will receive a small commission.

1. Collectibles

A true national park lover keeps track of the parks they’ve visited. Without having proof or at least an Instagram photo, you didn’t really go there, right? These collectors items aren’t your traditional boring coins but will be a great reminder of your travels and memories. 

Passport To Your National Parks

It’s so fun to go into the visitors center and stamp your passport. It’s exactly the same feeling of collecting real passport stamps when you visit different countries. The stamp even has the date so you’ll always remember when you visited! You can purchase a passport on Amazon or from eParks

National Parks Collector Pins and Map

When we first started our quest to visit all the U.S. national parks, we wanted to collect something in addition to passport stamps. We loved the pins because they are small and unlike stickers, can be used for years to come and moved around. However, we had no idea what to pin them to! This map solves that problem and can then be used to display somewhere in your home. Such a cool idea! Grab one on Amazon or on eParks.

Don’t forget to collect the pins to go on the map! 

2. Coffee Table Books

Everyone needs a good coffee table book and there’s nothing more beautiful than photos of national parks to brighten up a room. Your guests will get sucked in to flipping through pages and pages of stunning landscapes and interesting facts. These books will inspire anyone to start planning their next trip to a national park!
