November 22, 2020

Thanksgiving is a special holiday for hunters and they enjoy giving and receiving gifts. Hunting activity is not always a leisurely pursuit. For many families, hunting serves as a rite of passage and is more of a passion than a hobby. For this reason, finding the most thoughtful and functional gifts for them can be tricky. You need to recognize their love for hunting, give them an improved set of accessories or tools, and also present them with something that can make them smile.

How-To Guides and Books

Consider getting your favorite hunting enthusiast a complete guide to their beloved pastime. There are books that include comprehensive information on each species, hunting tactics, gear recommendations, and several delicious wild recipes that are easy to prepare. This is a perfect gift for novice hunters or those who are looking for additional information or guidance. 


Hand Warmers

Hand warmers are an essential item for hunting gear. During brutal winters and in places with extreme climates, this type of gift can make a hunting experience far more enjoyable. Hand warmers can also help with the grip and handling of a gun as frozen fingers are not much help when it comes time to shoot.


Heavy Duty Phone Case

These days, it is rare to find someone traveling without their phones. With apps that have been developed specifically for hunters, they are no exception to that rule. For that reason, a heavy duty phone case is a practical gift idea that will be useful in and out of the woods. These cases are especially designed for protection and convenience. Easy installation, intense durability and a sleek design are some of the benefits of this gift suggestion. No more cracked phone screens! 


Custom Animal Call

Add an extra personal touch to your Thanksgiving gift with a customized animal call. There are vendors who offer the option to customize specific animal calls with initials, a special message or your hunter’s favorite team. Rush Customs is a unique brand that can create animal calls with wood from specific hunting locations. The recipient of something like this will definitely know how much they are appreciated. 


Heavy Duty Watch Band

Modern technology has added convenience and safety to the world of hunting. Many hunters are utilizing smartwatches to monitor their health and other conditions while in the wilderness. If a hunter you know falls into that group, this RealTree Stealth Apple Watch Band is a must have. The design comes from one of most well known sources for camouflage and hunting gear. RealTree partnered with Rhino Brand to create this watch band of hunter’s dreams. It is both functional and stylish so it makes for a great Thanksgiving gift choice.  


Personalized Wallet for Hunters

As mentioned earlier, custom gifts always provide an extra dose of closeness to gift exchanges. A personalized wallet can include an inside joke, the inscription of an important date and much more. Since wallets are an item that are often overlooked even though they are always on hand, customization can turn them into a prized object of affection. 


Solar Powered Phone Charger

Whether their phones are needed to keep in touch with curious loved ones or to open an animal tracking app, hunters keep them close. As with any electronic device, charging can sometimes be a challenge depending on where you are.  A solar powered phone charger is a great gift idea that can provide relief for the hunter you love. The solar-power element makes it an invaluable gift since they would not have to rely on electricity for it to work. It can simply be left in a sunny place that receives a lot of natural light to be charged.  


All Purpose Binoculars

Hunters often spend time in open fields in the country. These fields tend to span many miles and large distances so it’s hard to get a good look at prey from afar. Some animals such as deer and pronghorn require specific types of binoculars to see them from miles away. This is one of the most practical Thanksgiving gifts for a hunter because of its function and benefits. All purpose binoculars can be used with glasses, there are a number of adjustments and settings to tailor to each user’s need. 


Tough Wool Boot Socks

This is one of the most important clothing items that hunters can easily overlook. Since they’re mostly needed during the colder seasons, this is the perfect time to make sure the hunter in your life is prepared. Thick, wool socks add comfort and support for hunters so the firm sole and design of their boots don’t become a bother while they’re in action. There are heated versions and some are more heavy  duty than others. This item can be found at various department and sporting goods stores. 


Butchering Kit

Generally, the actual work on hunting starts after an animal is brought down on the ground. No matter which animal is sought out, this step in the hunting process entails a lot of work. However, with a good, sharp-edged hunting knife, the work may be more efficient and less prone to accidents. That's the reason why knives are popular gifts for hunters. Whether they are preparing elk, deer, duck or anything else, a quality hunting knife is required. 


Unique Mosquito Repellent

Mosquito Repellent does not just effectively keep mosquitoes and other stinging insects away, but the best ones work without releasing any smell that can chase off other animals. There are socks that are specially designed as mosquito repellents and there are also handheld devices that can be used as portable repellents.  Either of these options are easy on the pocket, light on weight, and very easy to use. Purchasing repellent in the form of something other than a spray is fun and purposeful gift for hunters, given that they spend a lot of their time in areas and places where bugs are rampant. 


Waterproof Backpack

Gifting hunters a quality waterproof backpack can make a wet hunt a little less worrisome. Waterproof backpacks are available in many styles. Some are simply drawstring and others have more of a utility design with hefty pockets and spaces to store their necessities. A high-quality fitting pack with storage space for their important stuff and which won't influence how they move when stalking is definitely perfect for them.


Survival Bracelet

A survival bracelet contains a set of important tools in a tiny package that can easily be worn on the hunter's wrist. These types of bracelets usually come with one, some, or all of the following: a magnesium fire starter, a compass, steel, and an emergency knife. These bracelets are perfect for hunters as it is a compact piece of equipment that is multipurpose. It is imperative that hunters be prepared for the unexpected and this item can help them in that area. 


Although this list consists of some great options, the best gifts are always ones that are carefully tailored to the recipient. So make sure you're aware of what the hunters in your life need, want, and what they would think is incredibly cool. Happy gift hunting!
