GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
Summer is almost over. Still, it’s hot enough in some places to believe it’s still summer. And your summer/fall gift recipients can likely still use these type gifts.
Does your gift recipient want to keep of workouts for the big one or everyday?
The Timex Ironman 50-lap Watch’s training logs keeps track of all their hard work. Numerous other features like 99-lap counter, 24-hr. countdown timer, night light, etc. All in a sleek, aerodynamic design. $50
$70 rei.com (Men’s Timex Ironman 30-Lap watch also available, non-sale price -$40 – $55)
A young on the move sportsman might Nike Youth Diamond Elite Prospect Glove. $10
Have a serious biker on your list? Enhance their training with the Blackburn Delphi Bike Computer. Includes a heart monitor.
$100 (closeout) rei.com
The Solio Classic Solar Charger also appeals to the eco and tech minded. One day in the sun gives the gift recipients three charges for all-important devices. Or, they’ll use the USB power source. Includes a LED bright light source.
In the house or out in the wild, the Lansky Diamond Sharpening Kit comes in handy. Razor-sharp knives for cutting up whatever they bag. Or just whittling if that’s their thing. $35 lansky.com
(Academy Sports, Rei, etc. sometimes have these on sale for half price.)
Summer and grilling. Simpatico. (And remember until signs of Fall appear, it’s “Summer”.) Grill anywhere with the Coleman BTU Perfect Flow Grill Stove . Patio, camping, beach, tailgate–anywhere. Plus, two BTU burners for complementary dishes or hot beverages.
Summer and boating (see above). Your recipient love boating? And their vest looks a little shabby? Gift them with the Johnson Eagle Flotation Vest. Made of Glide Fit foam with mesh, adjustable shoulders, 200-denier nylon, with expandable pockets.
Gift the Burton Rider’s Bag to the camper or the traveler. Two separate compartments keep your recipients clean/dry things from the wet (or smelly) stuff. Even muddy boots. Wet area is tarp-lined and ventilated. Includes pockets to organize small gear. Noted as being able to easily withstand heavy usage. $45
Do you think a gift, such as the training ideas above, can motivate your reluctant warrior?
