Great Outdoor Gift Ideas

It can be a real challenge to select a holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your family.

What do you buy for that hunter, trapper, angler, camper, hiker, biker, boater or bird watcher who has a roomful or a basement cave full of outdoor gear? Hmmm … And, did I mention that we are a very picky, practical bunch of folks. Yes, I fall into all of those genres of outdoor activities I listed! And, I’m certain I’m not the only one that does either, HA!

From super stocking stuffers to big surprises to fun presents, I’ll have some good gift ideas for the outdoors-loving family and friends on your holiday list via a LIVE Twitter chat. It takes place this Friday, December 11, from 12- 1 p.m. CST. Our Twitter info for the chat, is: @NEGameandParks #NEHolidayChat


You are encouraged to share your outdoors-related holiday gift ideas with us as well! Here are some that I would suggest.


The “Husker Grinch” will have much more advice for holiday gift givers with outdoorsmen and women in the family on Twitter!
