Gift Guide: 5 Gifts for the Picky Outdoorsman in Your Life

These gifts will make any outdoorsman want to hit the woods.

It seems like the campers, anglers, backpackers and hikers you're close to are the most proactive people yet. Sleeping bag? They have one. Cookware? It's already in their Amazon cart. YETI cooler? Theirs is still holding up.

What do you get the outdoorsman that seems to have everything they need? Surely they're missing something from their outdoor gear collection, right?

If you're thinking hiking boots, hammocks, and headlamps are great gifts, you're not wrong, but you can do better.

This gift guide isn't going to consist of basic backpacking and cold weather gadgets. These are the perfect gifts that will make your loved one think, "Wow, I didn't know I needed this!"

Here are five outdoor gifts that will be helpful for any outdoorsman the next time they take a trip through the backcountry.

1. NikWax Cleaning Products

Even if you buy boots marked as water-resistant, water-repellent or waterproof, the treatment will eventually wear off. After long days of trekking or hunting in wet climates, boots can become susceptible to streams. This gift is perfect for keeping leather in tip-top shape.

2. Frabill Trophy Haul Bearclaw 1418 Fishing Net

Anglers are going to love this one for kayak fishing! This fishing net is built for catching fish with one hand. Paddling and fishing has never been easier. The net does have a folding handle, so anglers will be able to store the net easily.

3. HydroBlu Versa Flow Water Filter System

Forget water bottles. Anyone who is going on a camping trip most likely has their own by now. Do they have a water filter package, though? One of these should be in everyone's emergency kit. Sometimes campers stray too far from the campsite and run out of water. Give an outdoorsman this filter canteen to purify water and they'll have some peace of mind about running out of water. You can also buy them water purification tablets.

4. Henry Repeating Arms Long Ranger

A customer said the Long Ranger was worth the wait. The trigger action is a major perk on this rifle, and the woodwork is top-shelf to say the least.

5. GOOD TO-GO Food

Cooking around the campfire is a staple activity when visiting national parks. There's plenty of recipes you can easily cook over a fire pit. Foil packet recipes are truly underrated. Sometimes unexpected things happen though. Campers get too tired to cook, or they forget fire starter gadgets or a dutch oven. Things happen! For a quick meal, GOOD-TO-GO dehydrated meals come in handy.

Just add water and in minutes you'll have a meal. Choose from pasta, oatmeal, chili and more. They have a 4-year shelf life and are gluten-free.

These gifts will surely make them happy! Although, the ultimate gift is the heavy-duty 11-person tent from Cabela's. For more outdoorsman gift ideas, check out Gerber and Coleman on Amazon.
