Just in time for the holidays, we’ve compiled a list of recommended gifts for family, friends and co-workers who have a love for the outdoors.
Whether it’s camping, boating, ATVing, or snowmobiling that your recipient is passionate about, there are some great options when shopping for gifts that are sure to be useful on their next adventure.
Gifts for Camping Enthusiasts
Emergency Roadside Kit
None of us want to be stranded on the road, especially when towing a camper or trailer, but having a quality Emergency Roadside Kit can make the difference between a quick roadside repair or an expensive call to the local towing company.
Portable Floor Jack
A must-have for anybody who tows frequently, a portable floor jack is better suited for the task than most bottle and scissor jacks that come standard with most trucks & SUVs.
Portable floor jacks come with carrying cases to easily stow and can easily lift a trailer for a safer & more efficient roadside tire change.
The Fryin’ Saucer
Fried foods are a crowd-pleaser but, when frying in the house, it generally results in a dangerous, dirty, and stinky mess. Not when you’re camping, though! The good folks at The Frying Saucer Company have taken frying to the next level with The Fryin’ Saucer.
Best of all, the ring around the frying bowl is perfect for staging food that’s ready for hungry campers to enjoy.
Available direct from The Fryin Saucer Company online!
Gifts for Boaters
Every boater has a list of must-haves when packing for a day on the water. Here are some great gift ideas for the boater on your shopping list.
Inflatable Utility Mat
Years ago, roll-up foam mats were all the rage, but there are many downsides, including their weight, bulk, and lack of durability.
The inflatable water mat, available from multiple manufacturers, is a great alternative that stows away neatly, only takes a few minutes to inflate or deflate, and is extremely durable – even for the four legged pooch in the family!
We recommend the Mission Reef Inflatable Water Mat, 6’x8’ size.
Most households have a large cooler ready to be packed full of food, beverages, and ice. But, what about when you want to take a day trip on the boat without having to lug along a heavy cooler that takes up way too much space?
A small cooler with a shoulder strap that’s well-built is a great option. Modern cooler designs are even built to withstand the scorching hot sun to ensure your beverages stay cool all day long.
We recommend the RTIC Soft Pack Cooler, 20.
Gifts for ATV & Snowmobile Enthusiasts
When it comes to powersports, comfort and quality are essential components of a great ride. Even if you’re not quite sure how well outfitted your gift recipient is, having multiple options when it comes to gear & apparel is always welcome.
As riding conditions can vary greatly, it’s important to have options to be well-prepared for an especially warm, cool, or wet day on the trails.
A good pair of riding gloves is not only comfortable, but essential for staying warm and dry. Cold, wet hands are a surefire way to become miserable FAST and can also lead to frostbite.
Because riding conditions vary greatly, we recommend a good mix of thin base layer gloves and thicker gloves.
Pro Tip: The higher the gram rating, the warmer the glove!
An essential when wearing a helmet, balaclavas help improve comfort and add warmth for a long day on the trails. It’s helpful to have a mix of thin balaclavas for warmer conditions and warmer ones for cooler rides.
Whether your powersports gift recipient simply has a love for the sport or wants to become a YouTube sensation, a GoPro camera is the ultimate gift. There’s nothing quite like recapping a great day on the trails with friends than showing footage of the ride.
A variety of camera mounts are available to secure the camera to handlebars, helmets, and bumpers to create the perfect video effect.
