Buying gifts for an outdoorsy person can be challenging if you don’t share their passion for the great outdoors. There’s a good chance they already have so many tools that it’s difficult to find something useful and appreciated.
Or perhaps they’ve recently taken up a new outdoor pastime, in which case you’ll want to ensure your present can be put to good use.
