Do you have a camper or hunter on your list? Or maybe just someone who loves camouflage and the outdoors? This traditional style red lantern is fully functional with long lasting LED bulbs. It can be used for camping or just hanging out on the porch. Pair it with a new sleeping bag and a pair of warm socks. Pair the travel mug with lid with some of his favorite coffee or hot chocolate. The bottle opener would be a great companion gift with a six-pack of his favorite beer. The insulated flask can be paired with a sampling of mini bottles of his favorite types of alcohol.

Here are a few more ideas we wanted to share with you. For the guy in your life that likes to cook, consider getting him some grilling tools and recipe starters like BBQ sauce or seasonings. Get some top-of-the-line cooking utensils and pair them with some food items that he is guaranteed to love. Snack foods may seem basic, but they can be unique items that won't just be bought at the local grocery store. It is easy to build a goodie bag full of delicious snacks, or get a sampling to use them as stocking stuffers.

These funky socks come in a variety of prints. They are a fun twist on a classic gift. You would be surprised how many people love to get socks as gifts, especially when they are as quirky as these. Beer soap is a distinctive gift that works well as a stocking stuffer (and it is made from real beer).
