8 Gift Ideas For the Practical Outdoorsman in Your Life

Need some new gift ideas for the outdoorsman in your life? Here are nine of my favorite finds to help inspire you. 

Is your husband, father, brother, or another close friend or relative someone who loves a practical gift? Unfortunately, practical gifts become harder to get because my husband has often gone out and purchased the thing he needs.

If you feel stumped on what to get your favorite outdoorsman to, check out the ideas below. Many of these I have purchased for my outdoorsman, and he loved them.

8 Gift Ideas For the Practical Outdoorsman in Your Life



Not only was this important for my husband, who works outside year-round, but it’s an excellent item for the kids as well.

Every home needs a boot dryer. You can grab this same brand we have on Amazon here.

You may think you don’t need this, but every practical man loves a little jam while he is out in the barn, garage, woodshed, wherever. Again it’s helpful because the whole family can use this.

We have the Jam brand, which is why I’m recommending that one here. There are a ton of different wireless speakers to choose from on Amazon.

It’s so easy to connect your phone to the speaker.  You can also take calls on the speaker, which is great if they have their hands complete and can’t answer our calls!

If the man in your life doesn’t already own a pair, this is a must-have.  These are highly rated pairs for any outdoor activity. It’s mainly a winner for those who live in colder climates and hunt.  You can grab a pair from Cabela’s here. 

If you want to go the Amazon route, these Pembrook Wool Socks are comparable.


I love this idea of not just having a fire starter but a Compass, Paracord, and Whistle included. It allows you to start a fire in any weather condition. You have over 16k strikes at 5,500°F with Magnesium Rod. Check it out here. 

There are other options to choose from here.


A good sleeping bag is critical. My husband loves his Mummy sleeping bag. He always stays warm in this, no matter what the temperature is. Trust me; he’s slept outside in it, not even in a tent in 30-degree weather!

If your guy loves a cold beer, this is a must-have. Especially in the summertime, you can keep your favorite beverage cold for so long that you’ll have to rethink your understanding of a few natural laws, according to the website! Well, then this is the one to grab.

You can purchase it online here, or for my locals, they carry it at Runnings.


Any man wouldn’t love this, but to have a drone for your outdoorsmen is a yes indeed.

I got my husband a drone from, of course, BJ’s Wholesale Club last year on Black Friday for a great deal! They have a similar one same brand this year at BJs here. 

Otherwise, you can check out this same brand on Amazon here, and many are under $80!



This is a great gift to give the man who wants it all. I mean, from wire tools to screwdrivers to pliers, it has it all! If your man goes out on long hunting trips, this is a perfect item. Grab the Leatherman Wave Plus Multitool here.

My hubby has 3 of 8 things, the boot dryer, thermal socks, andmulti tool. They were all must haves. Today, i was just asking him what is a yeti and he told me he had no idea, as I saw ad for dicks having yeti on sale. Now I know. I do learn quite a bit from your vlogs Tasia, that I thank you for.

Hi Shelly! Yes those three things are essential. I'm so glad you enjoy stopping by this little corner of the internet!
