Gifts for the Gadget-Getter

About him:

He’s fascinated by new tech, and you’ll catch him scoping out the goods in the electronics section every time he shops. He embraces new gadgets with gusto, and he’s always ready to figure out how gear can make his life better.

3 gifts he’ll love:
  • GoPro Hero 6 with amazing low-light and night modes, touch zoom and hands-free controls.
  • Fitbit Ionic that stores and plays music, comes with a multi-day battery and features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen.
  • Callaway 200 Laser Range Finder equipped with 6x magnification that provides accurate yardage at up to 1,000 yards.

You could also grab him a Skyrocket Toys Sky Viper M550 Nano Drone to satisfy his need for airspeed, or choose a GoPro 3-Way Mount as an accessory to the Hero 6.

Gifts for the Outdoorsman

About him:

He’d rather be outside than inside whenever he has free time, and you'll find him fishing, camping, hunting or trekking through uncharted territory every chance he gets. He’s the kind of guy who would rather sleep under the stars than a ceiling fan, and although he might not say it, he’s really one with nature.

3 gifts he’ll love:

Seasoned trekkers and game trackers will always appreciate fresh socks like our Magellan Rugged Outdoor Socks and Wolverine Men’s Comfort Hunter Wool Boot Socks in a 3-Pack. For a really exceptional gift for the outdoor lover in your life, pair a brand new kayak with a pair of waterproof Magellan Outdoors Men’s Field Boot III Hunting Boots so he can navigate through streams and soggy trails without ever skipping a beat.

Gifts for the Forever Entertainer

About him:

He’s always ready to invite people over, and even if he’s not the life of the party, he’s the backbone of it. He loves sharing a good time with family and friends, and he’s the go-to guy when his buddies are ready to hang out.

3 gifts he’ll love:
  • 1-Liter Refinery Whiskey Barrel as a cool conversation piece that lets him infuse flavors into spirits with fresh herbs.
  • Refinery Magnetic Bottle Opener that catches bottle tops before they make a mess.
  • Mosaic 30-inch Kyrie Fire Pit to keep the fun going after the sun goes down.

Gifts for the Travel Enthusiast

About him:

He’s got a bucket list filled with names of places you’ve never heard of. Some of them are already crossed off – and he’s got the pictures to prove it. This is a guy who will throw his gear in a bag and go whenever – and wherever – he can.

3 gifts he’ll love:

He can prep for his next adventure with a Lewis N. Clark Luggage Scale with Weight Marker and keep his stuff safe with a Lewis N. Clark Travel Sentry® Indicator® Cable Lock. Help him stay hydrated (or caffeinated) with a Hydro Flask 20-ounce Wide-Mouth Water Bottle with a Flip Lid, and let him exploring uncharted territory in an ultra-comfortable pair of 100-percent recycled Timberland Men’s Groveton Chukka Boots.

Gifts for the Athlete

About him:

You’ll find him at the gym, sharing workout plans and shake recipes on social media, and hitting the court, track, or field to get the endorphin rush he craves. He's a “no pain, no gain” kind of guy – always pushing to be the best he can be, but someone who knows how to have fun at the same time.

3 gifts he’ll love:

He’ll need a pair of adidas Men’s Ultraboost Running Shoes if he’s hitting the track or trails, and a 2-pack of Under Armour Men’s Original Series Boxerjock Boxer Briefs with HeatGear® and Moisture Transport System fabrics to stay comfortable. No time for a massage after tearing it up on leg day? No problem – grab him a Trigger Point GRID Foam Roller for precision tension relief.

Gifts for the Firearm Enthusiast

About him:

He loves the smell of CLP in the morning and getting carbon out of tough-to-reach places with a cotton swab, and you’ll see him perk up when a conversation turns to guns and ammo. He has a well-stocked range bag (or he’s got plans for one), and he can tell you the difference between centerfire and rimfire without hesitation.

3 gifts he’ll love:

He’ll hit his max effective range of fun with a Smith & Wesson SD9VE 9mm Pistol or a Mossberg® Maverick® 88 Security 12-Gauge Pump-Action Shotgun. For the gun enthusiast who's still building out his arsenal, check out our holsters, targets, range bags, ear protection and other shooting accessories and gun safety and storage gear.

The ultimate gift:

A Browning FMJ 23-Gun Safe with a Ruger LCP II ACP Pistol and a boatload of ammunition locked inside.

Gifts for the Man Who Has It All

About him:

Notoriously tough to buy for, this guy appreciates a unique gift that nobody’s ever thought to give him before. He has a wide range of interests, and he’s always willing to expand his horizons by trying new stuff.

3 gifts he’ll love:

He’ll love showing off his team pride on gameday with a Sporticulture Houston Texans Team Inflatable Helmet that’s 50 inches of pure team spirit – especially if he can capture the neighbors’ reactions live as they walk by from his new Skyrocket Toys Sky Viper S1350HD Video Stunt Drone.
