Are you finishing-up your shopping or maybe just starting?  Still searching high-and-low for that unique gift for someone who loves the outdoors?  Well, we have a few ideas for you.

Gifts For Outdoor Lovers - Ideas and Resources from Archadeck

Gifts For Outdoor Lovers – Ideas and Resources from Archadeck

If you know an avid outdoor adventure-seeker,  it’s always convenient to head-on-over to your local specialty retailers like Dick’s, REI, Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s or St. Louis’ own Alpine Shop.  You’ll find everything you need, gift-wise, for hiking, camping, cycling, fishing and other outdoor sports.

If however, you’d like to find something a bit unique, check out the Uncrate Magazine or Dude (dudeiwantthat.com) for ingenious product inspiration.

On the other hand, if you know someone who loves the outdoors but prefers to stay a little closer to home — such as their own backyard — you’ve come to the right place.  From the outdoor master-chef to a family gardener or your wizard-of-entertaining-pal, we’ve found some unique gift ideas.  And here’s our list:

The Outdoor Chef

The BBQ Guys have a motto:  “We smoke the competition!”  Their website provides a list of the 100 best selling BBQ gifts for everyone who loves to cook outdoors.  With a range of price points you can find gadgets or complete grilling set-ups.  There’s no shortage of ideas here.

Big Green Eggs are a hit nowadays too!

The Backyard Gardener

Know a gardening fanatic?  Well, one of the very best things we’ve discovered is a gardening device from ProPlugger. Particularly handy and versatile, this 5-in-1 tool can be used anywhere in-and-around your yard for bulbs, vegetables and annuals; ground cover and lawn grass too.

ProPlugger will dig the hole you want, all from a standing position.  It’s efficient, functional and priced right… you can’t go wrong.

The Outdoor Entertainer

If you know someone who just can’t get enough fun-in-the-sun, check out our Pinterest board “Gifts For The Outdoor Living Lover” to find games, cool sunglasses, outdoor sound systems and speakers, outdoor television ideas and much much more.

Maybe you need an outdoor space to go with the gift?

Joking aside, if you don’t already have an outdoor living space such as a deck, screen porch or pergola and are thinking about adding a new one (or replacing an old one), please consider Archadeck.

To get started, watch a short video and download our free design guide.  The guide will get you thinking about  important questions and provide insight for planning your outdoor space.  Whether you’re a gardener, outdoor chef, love to relax alone or entertain a crowd — right in your own backyard — Archadeck’s Design Guide will help.
