One of the most common responses to these gifts will be “Thanks. Do you have the receipt?”
But there are several things that can be bought, regardless of the person’s interest in the outdoors. Start with this list and add as you wish.
1) Hand/Foot warmers – attached to your feet or put them in your pockets, they are welcome relief on frigid days.
2) Facemask – to cover all enthusiasts, get a camouflage one with an open eye panel.
3) Point-and-shoot camera with waterproof carrying case – many are inexpensive nowadays and can fit in most pockets.
4) Boonie hat- keeps the sun out of your eyes and off your neck all year long. If the person has never worn one before tell them to trust you.
5) Headlamp- a hands-free tool for doing any task in a low- or no-light situation.
What have I missed? What should be added to this list? I’m sure I’m forgetting something.
