Last week, I published a Gift Guide for the Gadget Guy, which involved lots of research and consultation with my dad and Sasha. I had to do the same with today’s guide for the outdoorsman, which, conveniently, is what both these men consider themselves. While in Durango this summer, we got to test out a lot of outdoorsy products, as we spent the majority of the day outside. We bought these Bunjo chairs, which are seriously amazing. We tried them out at Sports Authority and sat there for quite a while – too comortable to get up!

My dad has this CamelBak water purifying bottle, which after watching endless episodes of Naked and Afraid (guilty!), I wish the contestants could have! It’s genius. We recently bought our good friend this cordless Dewalt drill, which Sasha geeks out over (and Brett did too!).

Any outdoorsman (or woman) would love a copy of Into the Wild – one of the most inspiring books ever. These camouflage Carrera wayfarer glasses from Bloomingdales are perfect for the fashionable nature lover. This compass is the fanciest one I’ve ever seen – it tells you the time, temperature and cardinal directions. The gift I would most like to receive is the Aerobie AeroPress coffee maker, as reviews are very positive about the coffee it produces.

Do you have any creative gift ideas for the outdoorsman or woman in your life? Please share!

  1. I’ll take one of each please! I really like the glasses and rifle case.

      Oh my gosh. You know I will buy you new glasses! Anything but those Maui Jims!

  2. Love this list! I have wondered about those chairs – good to hear they’re comfortable! WHY does Sasha need a rifle case?!?

      They’re so, so comfy. And he is winding me up!!! Yuck.
