Outdoor Gift Ideas for Men

Outdoor Gift Ideas for Men

Since the holiday season is upon us, what better time to start thinking about the best outdoor gifts for the outdoorsman in your life? We’ve drawn on our expertise to guide you toward finding gifts that perfectly suit the outdoor lifestyle. At PECOS Outdoor, we believe that durability, practicality, and authenticity make all the difference, making PECOS your go-to source for outdoor products.

Thinking about what to gift the outdoor enthusiast in your life can feel like a challenging task. Whether it’s your dad who loves camping, your husband who enjoys long hikes, or your son who’s an avid fisherman, choosing the right gift is a stressful task. But what makes up a thoughtful gift? To answer that, we’ve compiled several unique outdoor gift ideas for men who love the wilderness. 

The Perfect Camping & Hiking Gifts

Camping and hiking require a mix of resilience, practicality, and comfort. So let’s check out some essential camping and hiking gear for our outdoorsy guys out there.

A Rechargeable Portable Battery

Next on the list is a staple of the outdoors – a rechargeable battery. Camping trips and day hikes can be unpredictable. Having a reliable power source can be a life-saving gadget under these circumstances, especially when access to civilization might be limited. This practical item is an excellent gift that any camper or hiker will appreciate. 


What better to have in the great outdoors than some good music? The Turtlebox is one of our personal favorites thanks to its robust design that holds up in any environment. Whether you are camping, hiking, or enjoying the outdoors in any other capacity, the Turtlebox is a fantastic gift that keeps on giving the gift of music.

A Camp Stove

Unlike campfires, which can be unpredictable and banned in certain areas, a camp stove offers a consistent and controllable heat source, making it easier to prepare various meals. It’s also portable and easy to set up, making it ideal for different camping environments, from remote backcountry locations to established campgrounds. Our personal favorite is the Presidio Fire Pit from Mill Scale, which has the unique capability of operating as a firepit or a camp stove! 

Truck Bed Storage Solutions

One constant pain for those who love to traverse the outdoors is storage. Thankfully, the experts at DECKED have thought of the perfect solution. Their truck bed storage has been a game-changer for us over here at PECOS and we know your man will love their products too!

The PECOS Table

Lastly, camping and hiking shouldn’t have to mean roughing it in all regards. Here at PECOS Outdoor, we believe outdoor enthusiasts deserve a bit of luxury too. That’s why we’ve developed the PECOS Table. Consider this – you’re in the middle of nowhere and need a stable, sturdy surface to prepare and cook your food. That’s where PECOS’ table fits in. Made of high-quality, durable materials, this table can hold up to 3200 pounds, counterbalance on any terrain, and even withstand up to 60 mph winds. That’s not just convenient; that’s badass.

Getting ready for outdoor adventures is not just about packing your bag and setting off; it’s also about equipping yourself with the right tools for your journey. Remember, gifts that make the recipient’s experiences safer, easier, and more comfortable are always a good bet.

Outdoor Gifts for Hunting & Fishing

When you’ve got a man in your life who appreciates a sunrise over a calm lake or the challenge of navigating the wilderness during hunting season, you know that ordinary gifts won’t cut it. Let’s dive into the sort of outdoorsy gifts that are perfect for those who love to hunt and fish.

Merino Wool Clothing

First on our list is merino wool clothing. This is a great option because it combines the warmth of wool with moisture-wicking technology. It’s perfect for those chilly morning fishing trips or long hunts during fall. Plus, they help regulate body temperature, providing comfort throughout long adventures.

A Lightweight Jacket

For someone who can’t get enough of long days in the great outdoors, a lightweight jacket is invaluable. Whether it’s for protection against the sun or a sudden shift in weather conditions, this item is a must-have for every hunter or fisherman. Our friends at Duck Camp make some badass jackets (as well as other clothing) made specifically for hunting. Give them a look! 

A Trusty Water Bottle

Next, for those long hunts or fishing trips, a durable water bottle can be a lifesaver. It’s essential to stay hydrated while engaging in outdoor activities. And don’t forget, a water bottle that maintains the content’s temperature for hours can be vital. A high-quality stainless steel water bottle not only looks good but also withstands challenging elements out in the wild. 

Portable Solar Panel

Similarly to the rechargeable battery, another great gift idea that might not be on everyone’s list is a portable solar panel. Powering devices is a constant challenge in the wilderness. Having a portable, water-resistant solar panel offers a reliable charging solution off the grid – a thoughtful gift for any hunter or fisherman.

The PECOS Table

In rugged conditions, no ordinary table will do. That’s why the PECOS badass table is an essential tool for hunting or fishing expeditions. Its ability to withstand up to carry up to 3200 lbs and balance on any terrain is just what you need when gutting a fish or cleaning game in the field.

Many think that the best gift is always something luxurious, but, as we all know, there is no one-size-fits-all gift for hunters and anglers. However, thoughtful gifts like these show a deep understanding of the outdoorsman’s needs, making them an awesome gift.

The Perfect BBQ Gifts

We would be amiss to not include some gifts for barbeque lovers as well. Our table works great as a pitmaster’s wingman so we know a thing or two about what will make that special someone in your life happy. Here are some of our favorite gift ideas for outdoorsmen who love to light up a smoker:


A World-class Smoker

At the top of our list is none other than a trusty smoker. Nothing will make your man happier than receiving a gorgeous smoker that he can use to feed his family for the rest of his life. When purchasing a smoker you are picking a lifelong piece of equipment, that is why we recommend you take a look at the incredible smokers made by Mill Scale. These smokers are built to last, made with only the highest quality steel and industrial-grade hardware. 

Some Premium Cuts of Meat

Once you have your trusty smoker you now need to get your meats. Like with your smoker, it is important not to cut corners on good meats. We source our meats from Force of Nature Meats and we can confidently say there is no higher quality cut available on the market today. In addition to making a delicious product, Force of Nature Meats helps support the environment – something imperative to every true outdoors enthusiast.

BBQ Seasonings & Dry Rubs

Well, we have given you our top smoker as well as our go-to cuts of meat so what is left? The answer: don’t forget that seasoning! A good BBQ seasoning is what will take your backyard barbeques to the next level. There are plenty of good seasonings on the market but our personal favorite is the Fab 5 from Meat Church. No one knows Texas BBQ better than Matt Pittman so who better to trust to season the meat your loved one worked so hard on? 

Selecting the Perfect Outdoor Gift

It is important to remember that it doesn’t always have to be a special occasion to give a gift. Whether it is Valentine’s Day, a birthday, or a simple “I appreciate you” the right gift can mean the world to your loved ones, especially when that gift resonates with their passion for the great outdoors.

Durability & Reliability

Remember that investing in high-quality materials for outdoor gear is crucial. A quality product will last longer and perform better over time. This extra cost may seem an uphill task, but it pays off in the long run.

Consider His Interests & Preferences

Choosing a gift for an outdoorsman may involve some thought, especially if you aren’t a particularly outdoorsy person yourself. The key is to think about what sort of adventures your man loves. Is he into camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, or some combination of these? Consider, too, his habits and preferences. Does he prefer solo adventures or group excursions? Is he a minimalist at heart, or does he love to carry an array of gadgets? Thinking about these things can guide you to find that ideal gift.

Our Products are Made with Versatility in Mind

Here at PECOS Outdoor, we have carefully crafted our products to meet the needs of every outdoorsman. The PECOS Table, for example, is not just for campsites or hunting grounds. It’s also great for tailgating, road trips, or even a backyard barbecue. It’s our pride in product versatility and quality that makes it a perfect gift for someone who loves the outdoors. 

Whether he is off to a national park for a weekend or simply hitting his favorite fishing hole, all his adventures require essential tools. The awesome gift you choose now could end up being his favorite companion on his future adventures.
