Holiday Gifts

Before we jump into the 2021 Holiday Gift Guides – Best Gifts for Outdoorsman, check out our previous gift guides for 2021.

While all the other gift guides are great, gifts for the outdoors is my favorite.  I love being outside, camping, fishing and just hanging out.  So today, let’s talk about some of my favorite gifts.  I have to shorten it up otherwise this list would be over 200 different items.

1Fishing Pole

  • Name – Varies
  • Price – Varies
  • Buy NowBass Pro
  • Description – What better way to relax and enjoy the great outdoors than fishing.  Anyone who loves fishing would love to get a new fishing pole.  I would love to get a new pole but my wife asks why I have 20 fishing poles when I can’t even catch a fish.  While she has a point, I don’t think she fully understands why I need more fishing poles.

2Fishing Reel

  • Name – Varies
  • Price – Varies
  • Buy NowBass Pro
  • Description – If you have a new fishing pole, you need a new reel.  As with a fishing pole, give one of the best gifts, a fishing reel.  There is nothing like having a reel that is smooth and works great.  After all, we are outdoors to relax, not get frustrated by an old reel.


  • Name – Wise Owl Outfitters Camping Hammocks
  • Price – $24
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – Don’t want to do much?  A hammock is a great gift for those lazy people like myself.  But seriously, there aren’t many things better than hiking up to a remote place, setting up a hammock, and just falling asleep to the great outdoors.  Sure, getting woken up by a bear is a real buzz-kill but until that happens, it’s relaxing.

4Portable Grill

  • Name – Portable Kitchen PKGO Portable Charcoal BBQ Smoker with Lid Cast Iron
  • Price – $265
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – Some of my favorite things to do, grill and eat.  One of the best things about being outside is you are never in a rush.  So grilling is so relaxing and fun because you aren’t in a rush and you can slow cook everything, which is always tastier.  I don’t own this grill and it doesn’t have many reviews but I love the idea of cast iron cooking.


  • Name – Crimson Trace Scope – Various
  • Price – Varies
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – For those who love to hunt or just shoot, Crimson Trace has some of the best scopes and is one of my favorites.  They are clear and offer some cool features, a quality scope that doesn’t break the bank is a great gift.


  • Name – Swiftwick
  • Price – $22
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – Take care of your feet and the rest will follow.  When you are hiking or hanging outside, it’s critical you have a pair of good boots and great socks.  Sure, socks aren’t an exciting gift but a necessary one.

7Fire Starter – QuickSurive

  • Name – QUICKSURVIVE All-Purpose Waterproof Fire Starters
  • Price – $13
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – You can never be too cautious.  If you know someone who loves going the distance, this is a nice gift.  It’s always good to be able to create fire quickly and in any condition.

8Emergency Fire Starter

  • Name – SparkForce Fire Starter
  • Price – $10
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – Don’t want to carry around bigger items like the QuickSurive.  This fire starter is a great gift as it can be used in any condition to help start a fire.  When you are in a bind, you need to have the basics of life, which is warmth.

9Hand Warmers

  • Name – Body & Hand Super Warmers
  • Price – $28
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – This is just a staple for every outdoorsman.  Sure you can get rechargeable hand warmers but these are small and you can keep a bunch in your backpack.  These are great to just take the chill off your hands, body, or feet.

10Rocking Chair

  • Name – GCI Outdoor Freestyle Rocker
  • Price – $75
  • Buy NowAmazon
  • Description – This is a great chair and a great gift.  Doesn’t matter if you are hanging around a fire or watching your kids playing sports.  This chair is comfortable and having the rocker makes it all that much better.  Let’s not forget this has a drink holder.  My wife has this chair and loves it.  She brings it to all the baseball games.
