Stocking Stuffers For The Hunter & Angler

Christmas is right around the corner and outdoor enthusiasts can be some of the hardest people to buy a Christmas gifts for. It seems they have everything or there’s something new on the outdoor market that they just can’t live without. However, there are several things that the outdoor enthusiasts can never have enough of and they will use these items on a daily basis. And best of all, they will cost you under $100.

These items could be something as simple as rope, waterproof matches, backpacks, clothing, maps or even camp cooking items. All these items have a time and place to be used. There are also a few things outdoor enthusiasts go through a lot of and they make the perfect stocking stuffers.

It doesn’t matter what outdoor activity we’re doing, camping, hiking, hunting or fishing, we often stay out too late and when it gets dark, we need to be able to see. Remember the huge flashlights of yesteryear? To get adequate lighting you had to have a big, bulky flashlight. Today’s flashlights use LED lighting, which projects an incredible beam of light. And modern flashlights are compact enough to carry easily in a daypack or even in your pocket. I would hate to count how many flashlights I have, but I’m sure I have two in every vehicle, backpack, tackle box, quad and on my boat. I also know I’ve used every one of them at one point or another. In my opinion, a flashlight is one of the most important tools to have on any outing.

Headlamps are the solution to hands-free lighting. Again, with LED lighting, a headlamp can give off just as much light as a flashlight and allow your hands to be free to set up camp or load your boat. They also make it easier to hike in lowlight conditions. I know for sure there’s a headlamp in every pack I take into the field or on the water. It’s one of the first pieces of gear I pack.

These simple but important item ideas are sure to please the outdoor enthusiast on your Christmas list, and I guarantee they will get used sooner rather than later.
