Finding gift ideas for gun lovers is not the hard part of gift giving; deciding which of many possibilities to give your gun lover is! One thing to consider when picking out an appropriate gift for your favorite gun lover is just how serious a gun lover they are. Many who love and enjoy guns and sports that require using guns are light-hearted, fun loving people. Others take guns much more seriously, almost to the point of being militaristic about their sport or hobby. There are gift ideas for gun lovers of all degrees, from beginners to experts.
Gifts range from gag gifts like humorous bumper stickers and gun shaped mints to serious gun accessories like custom belt buckles, pink pistols, laser aided scopes and bullets. Decide where your gun-toting friend fits best to narrow down a vast selection of items. Here are a few choice areas to consider for any season:
- Personalized gift items – to show off pride in the sport
- Practice aides – for sport skill improvement
- Safety equipment – protective devices and gear
- Hobby enhancements – kits, manuals, supplies
- Gift certificates & club memberships
Personalized apparel and imprinted gift items are nice for any hobbyist, including gun lovers. People who enjoy hobbies are also likely to enjoy receiving a personalized gift item that features some aspect of their hobby, or some related item that is personalized with their own name imprinted on it. For example, there are plenty of items that can be custom personalized for the gun lover, including shooting apparel and gun accessories. Pride in their sport is wearable fun, especially when creativity is applied to showy gifts like gun belts, vests, or my personal favorite: custom belt buckles.
Tee shirts, mugs, hats, jackets and other wearing apparel are available pre-printed with shooting sport designs or for individual customization. There are pre-printed gifts that feature gun photos and gun related text. Mugs, shirts, hats, bumper stickers, bags and other general gift merchandise are ready to order with gun related themes in their designs.
Now, for the more serious gun lover, consider ordering a personalized holster, a personalized gun belt, a carrying case, or have a nice photograph framed that features the shooter and their favorite hunting dog or trophy kill. Concealed carry holsters, in the pant holsters and other unique accessories also can be nice gift ideas for your gun enthusiast.
Practice makes perfect in many sports, including shooting. Practice gift ideas for the gun lovers in your life include targets, ammo, or perhaps a membership in the local gun club. For safety and security, gun lovers can always use ear protectors, safety glasses, locking ammo cases or gun cases, or gun safety locks. The gift of a portable gps system may help prevent getting lost in the woods.
An avid gun enthusiast may want to develop their hobby by learning how to reload bullets. Choose a beginner’s guide for reloading as a gift, or supply your shooter with some reloading equipment or supplies. There are several websites on which you can create something truly unique as a gift. Through them, you can custom create gear buy rifles online and novelties like bumper stickers, apparel, ornaments, mouse pads and, of course, custom belt buckles among other items. A gift certificate for a hunting or sporting goods store is always an appreciated gift. For the outdoors hunter, give camouflage items, like a warm blanket Snuggie or outerwear.
