Father’s Day 2020 (June 21st) is rapidly approaching! Have you thought about what you are going to get your dad yet? If your dad is an outdoorsman, I have plenty of gift ideas for you here in this blog entry. I have compiled a list of gift ideas that any outdoors dad would be glad to be on the receiving end of. I have hand selected items for any budget ranging from $20 to $300. I have included clickable links for each item..enjoy!
GIFT IDEAS UNDER $50:
Of course, TBP swag is always a great gift idea! Head over to our store where you will find stylish hats, shirts, hoodies, can coozies, decals, and more. Any dad will stroll the streets with more confidence when he is rocking some fresh TBP gear.
Another affordable gift idea is anything/everything over at Venado. Venado is a clothing brand designed for the outdoorsman. After all, the company was founded to provide hunters with clothing that looks good and feels good all while representing the outdoor/hunting lifestyle.
Here is a no brainer. You can get your dad a BaseMap Pro Membership for only $30 for the entire year. BaseMap wants to empower everyone to spend more time outside doing what they love. They want everyone (including your dad) to be able to go for a hike, go fishing, or even just explore your own hometown with their product.
Your dad a bowhunter? The next 2 items are affordable and he is sure to love them. Pick him up a 3 pack of Lumenok lighted nocks. Nothing more aggravating than not being able to find your arrows…with Lumenoks, that problem is history. Another power hitter gift idea is making sure dad heads to the field with a broadhead he can count on. Several of us at TBP choose to shoot the #207 100 grain expandable from Swhacker Broadheads. A 3 pack of heads comes with a practice head, you can’t go wrong with the “green machines”!
Is the back yard archery target looking beat up? If dad is spending more time looking for arrows that pass-thru his target than he is shooting, it is time for an upgrade. Morrell Targets offers a variety of targets ranging from bags, to foam, to 3D. An affordable bag target that is going to last is only a click away.
GIFT IDEAS $50-100:
Is dad shooting the same old raggedy release that he has been for the past 10 years? It is time to show him what a difference a new release can make. Cobra Archery makes a wide variety of products but they specialize in the release aid game. The NEW Maverick is a state-of-the-art design that combines ingenuity, simplicity, strength, and accuracy.
Need a new map of the family property, or dad’s favorite parcel of public land that he hunts? Karta Maps makes high quality maps with the idea of taking you farther and getting you closer. Dad is sure to take pride in a high quality map of his hunting area.
Who doesn’t like to come home and show their family and friends what they have seen while in the field? Many times, wildlife encounters are at a distance and cell phone pictures just don’t do them justice. Not anymore! Pick up a Phone Skope kit that dad is sure to love. Phone Skope allows you to quickly and easily attach your smartphone device to binoculars or spotting scopes to capture high quality images and video clips that dad can be proud of.
If your dad spends as much time in the woods in the fall as we do, a comfortable tree stand is a must. After all, comfort is the key to staying in the tree longer. Rivers Edge makes a wide variety of hang on stands, and ladder stands. An affordable home run in this category is one of our favorite stands…the Big Foot XL is just what the doctor ordered.
GIFT IDEAS $100+:
At the end of the day, safety is and always will be #1. Is there a better way to tell your dad you love him than giving him a gift that ensures he will make it home from the woods safely? Pick up your dad a new safety harness from Hunter Safety System. You could throw in a Lifeline from HSS to ensure that dad stays connected to the tree from the time he leaves the ground until the time he comes back to the ground after the hunt.
If your dad is a ground hunter, you’re going to love this next one. Hook him up with a Barronett Ground Blind. Our favorite blinds are the Ox4 and the Ox5. These oversized blinds are the best on the market and dad will be sure to enjoy his time in the field and out of the elements.
For any outdoorsmen, good optics are essential for a quality experience while in the field hunting or scouting. Vortex has a variety of choices from binoculars, to rangefinders, to riflescopes and more. Good glass is the key to good optics, and Vortex spares no expense in building a quality product that is built to last. He is sure to love the 10×42 Diamond Back HD binoculars.
Last but certainly not least, the HHA Tetra bow sight is a must have for any serious bowhunter. Over two decades of technology come together to provide one of the most versatile, lightweight and rugged sights available.
Time is ticking, Father’s Day will be here before we know it. Cheers to getting your dad something that he will love this year!
