The Weber Kettle Grill holds a special place in my heart as it’s the first grill that I bought myself when I became interested in this style of cooking. The best thing about this grill in particular is that it’s excellent for beginners. If you’re new to grilling and are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choices you have for grills, start with this one. It may not have all of the fancy accessories and settings that a modern grill has, but it will still get the job done to a high standard for home grillers. It’s insanely durable, I had mine for a good 7 years before I replaced it and even then it could have lasted longer, I just wanted a fancy new one. The grill is great for a variety of uses making it extremely versatile. You can happily grill hot dogs, vegetables, steak and hamburgers on this beauty. You can even turn it into a smoker if you wanted to by strategically arranging the charcoal under the grill. There’s plenty of room for large briskets, even the most modest of parties will be catered for.
The ideal present for the traveller on your list is this compact, all-in-one camp stove and cookset. A simple device from Jetboil that weighs slightly more than 7 ounces and boils water in 2.5 minutes is available. This small, nested set includes an insulated pot, an igniter, and a burner. You only need to add gasoline to get going.

Archery is a multi-disciplinary skill that teaches its practitioners patience, focus, and self-reliance, and provides a safe and structured outlet to master hand-eye coordination and physical control. It also prepares any potential hunters for their first, and every other subsequent, trip into the wilderness to test their mettle against that of Mother Nature. And this recurve bow is the ideal gift with which to become an accomplished archer, as it includes everything that the novice bow person needs to find their first steps into, and in, the exciting and compulsive world of archery.

Dandelions remind us of childhood memories. Blowing dandelion fluff and making a wish. You select how many seeds, one, two, three or four. If you prefer a larger number, leave me a message in notes to seller. As with all my real flower jewelry, I’ve encased real dandelion fluff (seeds) creating an art glass terrarium between two oval glass cabochons. The dandelion seeds are stationary, they do not move about. Dandelion jewelry is a great gift for siblings, childhood friends, children, parents or that special someone. With this pendant you can take a piece of nature with you wherever you go.

When it comes to outdoor gifts, I think it’s a good idea to buy functional gifts that people wouldn’t think of buying themselves, and this water bottle is a great one! As a former CPT and founder of an exercise and fitness business, NANBF, I cannot stress enough how essential it is to keep hydrated when you’re working out, exploring the great outdoors, etc. This water bottle is a great way to store your water because it is insulated with a double-walled vacuum, which means liquids stay at a cold temperature for long periods of time. Whenever I take part in outdoor activities, or even when I’m at the gym, I like to bring this water bottle with me!

When spending time outdoors, you often want to take a break from all the fun activities and excursions, and relax. However, this is tough to do if there is nowhere to sit, or you don’t have something to sit on. This is why a waterproof travel blanket is a great gift for those who spend a lot of time outside, because you can easily fold it up and take it with you everywhere. This specific blanket is waterproof, and large enough to fit a group of people comfortably. It’s perfect for a picnic, to lie on after a hike and is also great for the beach. The material will not absorb water, and is super easy to wipe down. It also folds up really small in a format that allows you to use a handle to bring it around. This makes a great gift for any outdoor enthusiast.
A fire pit is perfect for all seasons and would make a wonderful outdoor gift. I cook a lot on the grill for my grilling and recipe business, Own The Grill, and I often love inviting family and friends over to try these recipes. We love to sit outside and eat, and this firepit does an excellent job at keeping us warm. It is covered in high-heat paint so even if someone touches it (like I have by mistake on many occasions) they will be safe. I also love that it has a screen-lift so it is safe for children and pets! If you know someone who loves backyard parties and campfire chats with friends late into the night, from the comfort of their own backyard, this is the outdoor gift for them!

Our sunglasses are even shatter-resistant, scratch-resistant and ultra lightweight to ensure a long life-span.

This beautiful wind chime made of Capiz not only brings a pop of color, but also a peaceful sound as you enjoy a cup of coffee outside while reading a book, or a glass of wine and charcuterie board with your friends!
The VSSL Compact Adventure Tool is the perfect gift for those who love camping and the great outdoors. This tool looks like a simple flashlight from the outside, but unscrew the end and inside you will find 70 different outdoor survival essentials, including first aid items, a fire starting kit, a compass plus many more items.
The Biolite Sunlight 100 is my favourite camping gadget and is always a talking point whenever I am camping with friends. The first cool thing about this light is that it can be charged by solar power, which means you can hook it onto your backpack during the day and then light up your camp at night without needing batteries or a wall socket. Alternatively, you can use a USB if you want to give it some initial juice before your trip. The second cool thing is the different light modes. Yes, you can have this as a standard white style light, which you can dim if you wish, but you can also set the light to many different colours and even set it to cycle through the colours as well. This light had made me the envy of many a camping trip and it is awesome.

This Zippo Heatbank Hand warmer is a fantastic gift for anyone who appreciates hiking, camping, or the great outdoors. Although the Zippo company is best known for its lighters, they also provide a wide range of items to suit everyone’s needs. The dual purpose of this Heatbank is what I like about it. There are three different heat settings on this hand warmer. The fact that it features a USB connector so you can charge your gadgets and that the battery life is an astonishing 6 hours is perhaps its best feature. Additionally, it is slim and small enough to fit in your pocket without getting in the way while you are out hiking. It is the perfect gift for any outdoors enthusiast.

INDO Trick Scooter is a scooter without wheels which also makes it a perfect tool to use on the trampoline. That’s what makes this product unique. Why I am making this suggestion? Right now, I am 27 and miss the energy that I used to have in my early 20s. 20- 25 is the age when you are growing, experiencing new things, trying new stuff (crazy stuff) that makes you happy, and most importantly we are open to learning opportunities and like challenging ourselves. Therefore for 21-year-old men full of energy and crazy ideas, why not INDO?
