Not sure what to get that special gun girl or guy on your holiday list this year? Don’t worry. We understand the wants and needs of the average gun owner, because we are average gun owners (although we like to think of ourselves as “above average”). Since no one really wants an ugly sweater, we compiled this list to help the non-gun people in our lives buy gifts we’ll actually use and love.
Gifts for Her
Women can be particularly difficult to buy for. If you’re a dude, trying to find just the right gift for the ladies in your life can be extra hard, especially if you don’t know her size.
Does she take a 9mm? Or would 5.56 fit her better?
Lucky for you, the gifts on our list are one-size-fits-all.
This coaster set is perfect for the hostess who cares about her furniture and has the skills to hurt you if you mess it up. Especially well-suited for hunting or outdoor decorating themes, these hand-painted coasters look just like the bottom of a 12 gauge shotgun shell. Not only will these awesome coasters protect her wood coffee table from unsightly white water rings, they also add a splash of rugged sophistication to any decor.
Although necessary for safety, range safety equipment (like ear and eye protection) isn’t particularly fashionable…until now. This pink themed shooting kit is sure to turn heads. It includes folding ear protection muffs, tinted safety glasses with an anti-fog/anti-scratch coating, soft pink foam earplugs, and a compact carrying case with feminine pink accents.
Just make sure your gun gal isn’t turned off by girly pink-colored shooting gear. Some women consider pink shooting gear too girly for the range and might refuse to wear it. (It’s me. I’m some women.)
Nothing is as classy and sophisticated as a tennis bracelet. This one even features sparkling Swarovski crystals to add a little extra bling to her evening wear. It is also made from spent .40 S&W casings, so she can add a little shooting attitude to any outfit. Whether she’s hitting the shooting range or headed out for a night on the town, this shooting-themed tennis bracelet is the perfect way to accessorize.
It’s stylish, has a pithy saying, and holds eleven ounces of freshly brewed liquid consciousness. An original design by Look HUMAN, this sturdy mug features large handles for easy, pre-caffeination gripping. It is also dishwasher and microwave safe, which will make her life much easier. And it’s made in the USA!
The perfect gift for high-volume shooters, this universal pistol magazine loader and unloader from Sylvan Raptor speeds up and simplifies the loading process. After loading a few dozen magazines, your shooter (and her tired fingers) will thank you for this thoughtful gift.
The Fred FREEZE! Handgun Ice Tray is the perfect gift for the hostess who loves to shoot and loves to entertain. Because drinks with pistol-shaped ice cubes are sure to be a great conversation starter, this pistol-shaped ice-cube tray brings a unique twist to any social gathering.
This ice tray features a flexible silicone construction that easily bends to release six detailed handgun ice cubes. It is also completely dishwasher safe.
Red, white, or sparkling, this wine corkscrew easily opens them all. Let her show her dinner guests she means business by opening her favorite vino with a high-powered sniper rifle round.
Made from a genuine spent 50 caliber BMG bullet casing, the end unscrews to reveal the corkscrew. You simply slide the bullet through the hole in the screw and it provides ample leverage for de-corking even the toughest wine bottle. Not only was the original round fired in the good old U. S. of A., but the corkscrew is also American made.
This attractive mounted plaque is the perfect place for her to hide her home protection handgun, her valuables, or both. Handmade from solid distressed pine, this unique piece of home decor can be custom engraved with her family surname, first name, birthday, or wedding date.
The box features an inventive latching system that keeps it securely closed and your valuables hidden. It includes a Tac-Mag Gun Magnet with a 25-pound rating to secure your handgun inside. You also get all the necessary mounting hardware, although this gun safe is just as attractive sitting on a mantle, dresser, or nightstand.
Even the toughest woman can end up with a sore shoulder after a long day at the shooting range. This durable, reliable, easy-to-use comfort shield will help protect her shoulder from punishing recoil, and no one at the range will even know it is there.
Simply position the pad where it is most comfortable, then tighten the hook and loop fastener around the bra strap. It stays in place without shifting or sliding while she shoots. Although the comfort shield is designed to be worn under clothing, it is easy to put on and take off without removing your shirt. Sorry guys! No flashing at the gun range.
Gifts for Him
What do you get for the gun guy who has everything? One of these unique and creative gifts, of course.
Don’t just give him any old patriotic rocks glasses to hold his whiskey. Give him these endlessly cool patriotic glasses embedded with real bullets, because ‘Merica. These glasses are made from heavy, high-quality glass and feature a real lead-free .308 Winchester bullet that looks like it’s cruising right through your drink.
Each 11-ounce rocks glass is hand-sculpted and features the United States flag and ‘Merica printed on its front side. And of course it’s made in the USA!
Let him increase the cool factor on his AR-15 with one of these do-it-yourself vinyl camo kits from GunSkins. Easy to use, the skin conforms to any shape, providing a waterproof non-reflective matte finish. There are 40 designs to choose from, including several camo patterns, stars and stripes, thin blue line, and a pink lotus (which might be intended for the ladies, but we won’t judge).
GunSkins are totally safe to use on almost any weapon. And if he decides he doesn’t like it, it removes easily and leaves behind zero residue.
How do you keep a gun nut busy for hours? Give him this Adult Activity Book. Chock full of firearms-themed coloring pages, crossword puzzles, cryptograms, word searches, and gun trivia, this book is the perfect novelty gift for snipers of every age.
If the ladies can open their wine with a .50 caliber bullet, it’s only fair for the guys to get this ultra-cool .50 caliber bottle opener. He can use it to open his favorite craft beer or domestic brew with confidence and some major authority.
This unique bullet bottle opener is proudly fired by the United States military and machined into a bottle opener by hard-working Americans. Since the casings used to make these awesome bottle openers have been previously fired, they may show small signs of use consistent with their history. However, this just makes them that much cooler, with each a true original.
There may be nothing smoother than a man in aviator sunglasses. We could ramble on and on about how these sunglasses feature SkyTec glass, Blue Wave HEV Blue Light Management, and 100% UVA and UVB lenses…but what really matters is they are COOL.
Randolph Engineering’s collection of aviator sunglasses have been standard issue for the United States Military since 1982. Which was only four years before Maverick rocked them in the classic American action drama film, Top Gun. These make the perfect gift for your favorite wing man.
The ultimate in shooting safety ear protection, these electronic earmuffs provide distortion-free amplification of crucial low level sounds like range commands and conversation. However, they instantly block any noise above 82 decibels, saving your ears from possible irreversible damage.
Honeywell Electronic Earmuffs include 2 AAA batteries, an automatic shut-off feature, and an integrated AUX input and connection cord, so your gun guy can hook them up to his MP3 player or police scanner when he’s not at the shooting range.
Who hasn’t dreamed of shooting their alarm clock? You can let him entertain his fantasies with the Lock N’ Load Target Alarm Clock. When the alarm goes off, the Gun O’Clock target pops up. To turn off the alarm, he has to grab the included laser gun and “shoot” the target’s sensor.
The clock has three different game modes:
- Quick Shot Mode requires you to pull off five perfect shots within 3 minutes.
- Time Mode challenges you to wake up, react, and blast the target as quickly as possible.
- Random Mode changes up the timing, creating an unpredictable morning stand-off with your alarm clock.
This is a great gift for shooters who like to train for accuracy and reaction time. However, they may have to resist the urge to shoot the alarm with their actual firearm.
The Nerf Rampage N-Strike Elite may look like a kid’s toy, but it is actually a must-have for gun nerds. This is a gun he can actually shoot in the house!
The blaster’s drum holds up to 25 official Nerf Elite foam darts, giving you plenty of firepower for even the roughest Nerf battles. It shoots up to 90 feet, requires no batteries, and has super-cool slam fire action for rapid dart blasting fun.
Not only is this professional, refillable ballpoint pen one of the smoothest pens you’ll ever use to sign your name, it also makes the perfect gift for the gun lover in your life. It has an attractive gun metal finish, is shaped like a real rifle cartridge, has a pocket clip shaped like a rifle, and has a unique bolt action point retraction.
Gifts for Both
A great gift option for big game hunters and long-range shooters, this Celestron Spotting Scope lets you get up close and personal with your targets. It has good quality glass and 20-60x magnification.
Both guys and gals sometimes need a hand when zeroing in a scope. This one is rock solid with a dual frame design that disperses recoil energy. It also fits virtually any shotgun or rifle, making this a great one-size-fits-all gift they won’t have to return after the holidays.
Self-healing is all the rage these days, and these Self Healing Targets from Caldwell are perfect for some self-care range time. Built to last, thestarget are made of a very dense ballistic polymer that expands to minimize bullet holes. They react to being shot by bouncing, giving hit affirmation and allowing shooters to drill their aiming and reaction time.
Perfect for guys and gals, this t-shirt is part support for the Second Amendment and part snarky humor with a pinch of double entendre. What gun nerd doesn’t want to show off their guns?
Gun enthusiasts can be particularly difficult to buy for during the holiday season, partly because we can be a picky bunch, and partly because our hobby is so specialized. It is often hard for loved ones to know what to buy the gun people on their list because they don’t completely understand our love of shooting.
Hopefully, this list has given you a few specific gift ideas for those special shooters in your life. Each item on our list is a unique or practical gift that would make a great holiday present for any of the special gun nuts in your life.
