outdoorsman carrying gifts

 

It's almost Christmas and if you still haven't finished doing your holiday gift shopping, we totally understand you. Not everyone has the luxury to take a week off before the holidays and thinking up a good gift for the special people in your life can be hard. But don't worry, you probably have a couple of friends or relatives that are into camping or outdoor recreation, if you can't think of gifts for them, we have you covered.

For this post, we've rounded up a couple of solid outdoor equipment that we'd be happy to receive ourselves. Of course, we tried to pick a unique gift for the people we all typically have in our lives so don't be afraid to get these products even though you still don't know who you'll give it to, we promise that there's always that one person who will fit the bill!

  • Has a "stereo" mode
