Golf Ball Marker Divot Tool - Personalized

Got a golf fanatic GUY in your life? A golf divot tool is one of the best gifts for him. This one actually goes one step further and is both a golf ball marker and divot tool. A genuine wood ball marker nests inside the alloy divot tool, held in place by a magnet. When a GUY needs to mark his ball, he simply slides it out.

We love to go golfing with the buddies. Spending an afternoon out on the links on a warm day is so refreshing. We recently golfed the Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course, the one with the floating green. What a great outing!

A guy we saw pulled out his personalized divot tool and it looked so classy. It's on the top of the gift list now for the golfers I know.

I think this golfing gift would be great for nearly any age GUY.

Recommendation:

  • match the GUY's car or home with the right wood selection 
  • black matches anything

20 03 25 20 41 36 original 600x600 wilson football

Best Official Football

Football is an essential component of any good Thanksgiving day celebration, Saturday afternoon yard game, or a more official game. There is no better way to have a good time with the buddies than with a classic NFL football from Wilson. It’s functional and timeless, two things all products for men should be. The football is also available in multiple sizes ranging from official to junior, so even the little GUYs can play.

When I was a kid we played for hours in the backyard. We had kids from all over the neighborhood show up for flag football. We used a Wilson then and our kids use a Wilson football now. 

Our youth sports program uses a Wilson as well. Both flag and tackle leagues love the texture and feel of the ball.

Recommendations:

  • Get a pump
  • Wear the right gear

19 11 09 12 45 16 original 600x600 fishing rod collapsable

Telescopic Fishing Rod and Reel Combos

GUYs who love to fish will love this telescoping pole. It's great for backpacking, carrying in the truck or ATV. 

We've tried various poles over the years. Finding a stury, affordable telescoping pole is a challenge. This highly-rated kit fits the need. 

This pole has been on over a hundred fishing outings. We recently had to swap out the pole because the bearings wore out. We bought another reel from the same seller and it has been flawless.

Recommendations:

  • Be sure to add the line to the arbor correctly (see Youtube) so the line doesn't tangle
  • Finger tighten the nuts holding the reel occasionally to make sure the reel doesn't come loose.

20 03 27 13 47 22 original 600x600 fishing pole jordan lee

Fishing Rod - Abu Garcia

We love to fish! We love fly fishing streams and rivers, boat fishing lakes, drift fishing, etc. Having the right rod reel combo makes all the difference between a rough day on the water and a smooth day focused on fishing and not fixing. 

When we fish pike, bass and other big fish we huck out our bait with a sturfy baitcasting system. The Abu Garcia/Black Max combo is great for your avid fisherman. We love the low profile feel and the stiff action. 

Recommendations:

  • if you're a beginner shop around a bit - for this price you probably won't find a better deal
  • don't get into bait fishing as a beginner - casting can be problematic - get a spinner rod/reel combo

20 01 15 17 08 26 original 600x600 portable speaker

JBL Bluetooth Speaker

The problem with my portable speaker is that I never get to use it. My kids steal it at every chance. 

Everything is mobile now. The kids even play their tunes when we head to the hills on the ATVs. The portable speaker is their device of choice for sharing tunes away from home. The other night I walked out to the firepit and there they were goofing off with the music piped into the background.

The JBL portable speaker has all of the features you want without the weight of a larger speaker. It doubles as a speakerphone for calls as well. Just connect to the mobile device and the whole audience can hear.

Recommendations:

  • if you only have one, hide it :)
  • get a rechargeable model

20 04 01 14 03 02 original 600x600 grill accessories

BBQ Grill Accessories

Every grill master needs a set of grilling tools for his backyard kitchen. We've researched and used a number of BBQ grilling kits. This one is one of the best values for the price.

It comes with everything you could need to grill meat and veggies. It even comes with skewers and drinking straws! We found the handles to be comfortable and the lengths are just right.

Recommendations:

  • grill safely
  • keep the accessories with the box they come in so they don't wander off

20 04 09 13 18 58 original 600x600 external drive

Portable External Hard Drive - Seagate

I have a friend who jokingly believes that it's time to get a new PC when the old one "gets filled up". He says, "We have too many videos on this one, time to get a new machine." LOL

Often we can back up our data and digital assets to the cloud. However, it makes sense to have a local copy as well. Portable hard drives are now large enough to hold a huge amount of digital files. The Seagate portable external hard drive is easy to use. Plus, it can go anywhere. 

We put our critical files and memorabilia on a pair of portable drives. The one with critical personal files goes in our safe and the one without confidential information is left plugged into the PC. In the case of emergency, anyone can walk by the PC and grab the pocket-sized device and take it along without lugging around a PC. The one in the safe isn't as accessible but everyone in the family knows where it is.

Recommendations:

  • Consider larger drives. You can find them in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB sizes for a very reasonable price
  • Back up your data to the cloud and keep a copy on a hard drive you can walk away with in an emergency

20 03 12 16 56 40 original 600x600 rain jacket 32 degrees

Weatherproof Rain Jacket

Materials: Shell: 90% Polyester | 10% Spandex. Lining: 100% Polyester

I bought one of these a few years ago. I used it a ton in the rainy season. I'm outdoors A LOT - over 150 times a year. This is my go-to jacket for warm weather protection.

The first jacket wore out over a few years. I own a couple now. They're a great addition to outdoor or casual occasions.

20 04 03 12 39 40 original 600x600 hammock

Wise Owl Hammock

Camping

We camp a lot. For years the tent was the main source or protection at night. Now, the kids go for the hammocks nearly every time. They love them because they are very light, easy to carry in a pack and easy to set up. No more tent poles or hard ground to sleep on.

My daughter thinks sleeping over water is her new favorite thing. 

Back Yard

During the summer a hammock is left hanging in the trees. You'll see random bodies chilling in it throughout the day.

Recommendations:

  • get the bug net just in case - we had an incident one night with a kid getting eaten alive while asleep.
  • paracord and other webbing can be used if the straps don't reach
  • make sure the trees are thick enough
  • you can do double-decker hammocks but you might not see the kids all day

20 03 24 16 32 40 original 600x600 dutch oven

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

We spend a lot of time camping and hanging out in the outdoors. Cast iron Dutch ovens are known for making some of the most delicious meals, from slow roasted meats to your favorite fruit cobbler. We bought 2 so we could cook dinner and dessert at the same time. :)

Recommendations:

  • season your dutch oven before using, even if it comes 'seasoned' (youtube shows you how)
  • while the brand of briquets doesn't really matter, the quantity does - research how many to use for the meal you plan to cook
  • do a quick internet search for recipes - here are some we love:
    • chicken pot pie
    • chicken alfredo
    • German pancakes
    • mountain man breakfast
    • cobbler (any)

21 01 25 16 34 47 original 600x600 2 way radio durable

2-Way Radio - Durable

Communicating with others in a survival situation can be life saving. Many experts recommend a radio per household member. We like the idea of having two of these quality radios per household with a standard RFS walkie talkie per person. It brings so much peace of mind to know others are out there who could communicate during a 'grid-is-down', 'cell-phones-are-out' situation.

What's in the box?

  • BaoFeng BF-F8HP
  • 2000mAh Battery
  • V-85 Antenna

21 01 25 16 35 10 original 600x600 arc plasma waterproof lighter

Arc Plasma Waterproof Lighter

Starting fire for warmth and cooking is one of the primary outdoor survival priorities. Many fire starting methods require too much energy and time. Having an electric arc plasma lighter is the best option to get going quickly. The USB recharging function means you can use the lighter over and over.

The fact that the lighter is waterproof and windproof makes it perfect for survival. 

Tips and Recommendations

  • Be safe! - don't burn yourself and make your emergency worse
  • Keep away from kids - kids love fire but don't respect it - just ask the Scouts
