Gift Guide 2011
I consider myself a Gentleman, Scholar, Athlete and Adventurer, and pick things I would like to get under the tree on Christmas morning.
Be sure to check out last year's post:
Christmas Gifts for the Adventurous Gent 2010.
I hope this list inspires some great ideas or at least a related gift. If so, let us know!
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Lonely Planet A Year of Adventures ($14)
Basically a ready made Life List for the adventure addict in your family. They can work their way through the list or, my favorite way, randomly pick a page and go! Since it is by Lonely Planet, you know it is well researched and written.
Field Notes ($10 for a 3-pack)
I can't say enough about this company and their Made in the USA products. Everything I have ordered from them has been of top notch quality and their customer service exceeds expectations. Their current Limited Edition is the Northerly Edition (pictured) of which they have a new one every quarter. It looks like they still have some of these left as of now (Nov 28th at 11:30 Central) but I would act fast if you want some of these for a great stocking stuffer because they sell out quickly! However, if you miss the limited editions, they have many other great items.
Pure Badger Shaving Brush
($15 and up) Upgrade their shave with a Badger Shave Brush and stop rubbing the shaving cream on with your or their hand.
Tip: Make sure to get a real Dutch Oven with a flat top so coals can be placed on top for convection cooking. He also might need heat proof gloves.
($22) Every man should at least be able to do a couple pull ups. They are a very telling example of your overall health and fitness level.
A good rule of preparedness is to never leave the house without something that can be used as a weapon. This Tactical Pen fills that role nicely. ($18)
Browning Tactical Axe
For the camper or adventurer on your list both of the above items would be great. You always need fire and a way to get fire and no one can have too many knives. Especially a knife developed by Bear Grylls and Gerber! Bear also has a full line of outdoor cloths and equipment so be sure to check them all out.
Thanks again for reading, Good luck shopping and Merry Christmas 2011!
