Holiday Gifts for Rustic, Outdoorsy Men

My Amazon picks for the best outdoor, camping, cooking, rustic, outdoorsy gifts for men. Perfect gifts for husband, boyfriend, dad, brother, uncle, father in law, grandpa and any guy in your life!

I apologize for that title, but it makes me giggle. Men seem to be constantly portrayed these days as beard-laden, bush wacking lumberjacks who are all supposed to know how to build their own homes and start a fire from scratch using nothing but foraged twigs and dryer lint (come to think of it, I know someone that can do this…)

I’ll tell you something, though: As a female, I’m into it and I don’t feel that bad for them.

This holiday gift guide for your favorite rustic, outdoorsy men was curated using nothing but Amazon products that I have hand selected, because A) It’s quick & easy for everyone; and B) If you click on a link and buy something I’ll get like 4 cents for it. As always, thank you for supporting my blog!

P.S: There is not a single beard oil on this list. You’re welcome 🙂

P.P.S: Amazon prices are volatile, so consider mine “ballpark.”
