1. Olight S1 Mini Baton Rechargeable Flashlight
This little beauty is perfect for everyone's EDC kit. It's super small and puts out a wicked beam of light. There are two versions available: One in a 600-lumen, cool-white beam and another in a 450-lumen, neutral-white High CRI beam. This product has more features than you can shake a yule log at.

I want this flashlight! In fact, I want several of them.
2. Balaclava Face Mask
This thick, fleece mask will definitely keep your friend or family member's noggin toasty. The material is windproof and breathable, keeping the head, neck, ears and face warm. It's the ultimate protection from the cold, wind and snow.
This is a great gift idea for someone who partakes in ice fishing, hunting, hiking, trekking, camping in the chilly weather or working outdoors in a cold climate. It also easily converts into a balaclava, face mask, hood, hat, heavy scarf or beanie. It's very affordable at around $20 with shipping.
3. 1Tac.com Tactical Pen
Here's another EDC item, or a potential life-saving tool to keep in your vehicle.
This product is designed from aircraft-grade aluminum, making it incredibly durable. This smooth-writing rollerball pen also features a tungsten steel tip that can break glass, as well as a removable a stainless-steel, razor-sharp blade and a super-bright LED light.
This tactical pen currently sits around $40. Get it here.
4. 18X Telephoto Phone Camera Lens
What better gift for an angler or hunter than a gadget that allows him or her to take better cell phone pictures at a distance? The opportunities they'll have to use this telephoto lens seem pretty endless, whether they're sitting in a treestand or in a boat on the water.
It's compatible with several different cell phone models (check the fine print). It also comes with a mini tripod with extendable legs so you can position the device more precisely.

5. Man Crates
Okay, this one is marketed specifically for men, but I'm betting there are some crates here that the ladies will love just as much. These are higher-end gifts, so if you want to get that special someone something really, well, special, this is it.
Man Crates has dozens of Christmas gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on any man's face. They've got an Exotic Meats crate, a Cigar Humidor crate, a Chef's Knife Making crate, a Pipe Making crate, A BACON crate, a Whiskey Appreciation crate (my personal favorite) and many more. You might even want to gift yourself one of these crates!
When the crate arrives, the giftee gets to open it with his or her very own laser-engraved crowbar. How cool is that?
Here are five more great, and overlooked gift suggestions.
Hopefully Christmas shopping is a little easier now!
