With Christmas fast approaching, many of us are in a last-second rush to find gifts for those who are the hardest to shop for. And if you are thinking about your best friend who prefers to explore the wilderness rather than spending his time in front of the TV, we have a few great ideas of Christmas gifts for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you are shopping for teenage boy or for your grandparents, who love traveling the country in their trailer, there is a universal gear and gizmos that every outdoor enthusiast will love.
No matter the hobby or sport, every outdoor enthusiast needs a sturdy, durable backpack. And Teton Sports Explorer 4000 backpack has some unique extras – a padded water bladder pocket for easy access to your water, spots for walking sticks, a special sleeping bag compartment, and a bright yellow attached rainfly to keep your essentials dry even in the worst weather. The price of $72 – $90 here is higher than if you are buying a school backpack, but it’s an absolute must-have.
The (almost) real home
One of the most annoying things when you are outdoors – the tiny, one-person tent, that’s not even big enough to fit you. And Wenzel Klondike 16x 11-feet 8 Person Family Tent is just the opposite. It accommodates up to 8 people and even better – your better half and yourself, plus all your stuff! This fantastic (almost) home is huge and it’s discounted to $177 here, so don’t miss it.
Never miss the action
This is one of the most exciting gifts ever – nothing has changed video more than the introduction of the GoPro camera. And trust us, every outdoor enthusiast is dreaming about one. GroPro Hero 4 is the best you can get right now at that price ($499) – it’s convenient, it provides ultra-high quality images and video, it works in all conditions and all environments, and it’s just a pro camera made for enthusiasts!
For the gourmet lover, even in the great outdoors
There are tons of $25 camp stoves and grills and there are amazing, ultra modern grills/cookers/smokers for over $1,000. But the outdoor enthusiast will surely appreciate the compact size and functionality of the Volcano 3 Collapsible Cook Stove which is only available here. It works with propane, charcoal or wood and it’s a grill/Dutch oven/Wok/baking/roasting cooker 5-in-1, which is portable and comes with a storage bag!
Usually, now it would be the best time to recommend a handy tool or a classic Swiss army knife set. But every person who spends their free time in the wilderness should have these. But the Carabiner Watch, Compass, Magnifier and Flashlight is great for gifting – it’s multifunctional, it’s durable, it’s stylish and it comes in a brushed-metal gift box. This beauty can be used in the city, as well, but probably the best thing about it is its price – $42.95 we saw here.
