The biggest shopping season of the year is upon us, and finding the right gift can be hard. That’s why I put together a little list for anyone who loves the outdoors. Nothing is better than a gift that keeps on giving. That’s why the first two are subscription based services that you can choose to keep the spirit alive as long or little as you wish. The rest on the list are awesome one hit wonders that will be cherished forever. Let me know in the comments below if you found this helpful. Happy holidays everyone!
Lucky Tackle Box is a monthly subscription box for fishing. LTB will ship a box jam-packed full of the best new lures and baits every month. I am signing up for a 12 month subscription myself. That way, I can review the practicality of each box, matching it with each seasons targeted fish species.
LOLJerky is the beef jerky of the month club that you want to be a part of. They deliver surprise flavors of healthy and delicious beef jerky to your door every month. LOLJerky also donates a small portion of each beef jerky subscription to local farmers. You can’t go wrong with a company showing such good values.
Patriot coolers– It doesn’t matter if you are going into the field or just a day at the beach, patriot products are what you’ll need. With the soft packs keeping Ice for 3 days and the hard coolers keeping ice for 5 days you will be happy you picked Patriot. Unlike other brands, Patriot really sets themselves apart by donating 20% of their net proceeds to a non-profit organization, Homes For Our Troops, whose mission includes helping veterans who have been injured during duty.
Anyone who loves the outdoors knows that weather can change on a dime. Having a good set of wet weather gear can make or break a trip. The trick is to have it be compact enough to not bog you down. That’s why I am a big fan of Huk Performance Fishing Gear, they offer a high quality packable top and bottom that packs into itself making it easy to throw in a bag and go.
This one is a no brainer, having a headlamp gives you the ability to see what you’re doing once the sun goes down. You don’t have to go all out with this one. However, most of the time you get what you pay for. I personally get a new headlamp every two years spending anywhere between $20-$60 each time.
The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook– If you spend any amount of time hunting and fishing for your meat, this is a must have. It is full of delicious recipes covering a wide variety of fish and game meat.
Last but not least, BBQ equipment. Anyone can slap a piece of meat on a grill and set it on fire, but having the right tools turns a simple grill out into a high quality dining experience. That’s why I always recommend getting a few items such as grill mats, a veggie trays, and or a fish basket. All of these options will allow the user to cook meat and veggies without it sticking to the grill. You can normally find them on amazon for $30 or less.
