SBT Gift Guide: The Outdoorsman (or -Woman)

It’s the Christmas shopping season, people! Maybe you’ve got someone on your list who loves to be outdoors–maybe they hunt and fish, or maybe they just love to commune with nature. Maybe they love to watch TV shows about survivalists just so they can quibble. They own more than one pair of hiking boots and know why people say moss grows on the north side of the tree (and that they’re actually wrong).

Unless you are equally outdoorsy, this person might be tough to shop for. So here are a few ideas, and all of them from small-time sellers on Etsy (including my own shops–gotta be up front about that). {For more info on any item, just click on the picture.}

My first idea when giving to just about anyone is to find the perfect book:

trees

outdoorcooking

wild

fishing

fish

Then again, if a book doesn’t sound right, you can’t go wrong with something warm and fuzzy.

foxscarf

hat

Or something beautiful:

portable stove

antelope

And who says what’s pretty can’t be practical? (And if you think your outdoorsy friend isn’t into “pretty,” consider this: what’s prettier than the great outdoors?)

themos

knife

And guess what? The most expensive item on this list is $55. Most of them are much cheaper than that. And all are from small businesses.
