The time has finally arrived, firearm deer season has come to a close, we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with our families and friends, and now it’s that time of year that we start prepping for the upcoming holiday season.
If you’re like me, you may have several outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen on your Christmas gift giving list. Being passionate about everything outdoors, whether it be hunting, fishing, camping, or shooting, I am constantly on the lookout for the latest and greatest gear on the market.
By doing so, I have come up with my top 10 Christmas gift ideas for the outdoorsman or outdoorswoman on your list… just in case one or two of them was good this year.
1. ThermaCell Heated Insoles — If you spend much time in the outdoors during the winter months chances are your feet have been cold. I know from my own personal experience that when your feet get cold, the fun stops. You don’t have to worry about that anymore with ThermaCell Heated Insoles.
These revolutionary insoles provide warmth at the touch of a button from your smartphone. They work with rechargeable batteries that fit inside ProFlex heavy duty insoles, the batteries charge fast and will last up to 6.5 hours of warmth per charge. You can simply control the temperature of your feet from your smartphone with bluetooth.
Whoever the lucky one on your Christmas list is they will never have cold feet while in the outdoors again. For more info, go to heat.thermacell.com.
