Finding the perfect birthday gift for the rugged outdoorsman in your life can prove to be a real challenge. These men are thrifty, and knowledgeable on how to fix anything and everything. They never throw anything away, and can make anything last until it is literally beyond repair, which can seem like a lifetime! He always has everything he needs, and never really seeks out anything new.
He is content with all he has, and one of the greatest things he has is a divine appreciation for nature and the outdoors! He can rough-it, start a fire with his eyes closed, cook a killer steak on the grill or over the fire pit, and knows how to survive, and how to “live off the land.” So, where do you even begin to look to get the man who has it all, and never seems to need anything because he’s got it handled, a gift for his birthday?
Whether he is into fishing, hunting, hiking, or camping out, below are 7 gift ideas sure to be ideal for the great outdoorsman!
Of course, you would want your outdoorsman to be safe when out on one of his outdoor adventures, and you will also want to be safe if you’re with him. So yes, there is actually bear spray, the perfect gift to assist safety on his birthday! It’s meant to keep bears away when you’re out on those camping trips deep in the woods where there may be bears and other wild animals. Sure, he will be prepared, but he can never be too careful, especially where bears are concerned!
Coleman Cast Iron Cooler
This cooler isn’t your typical run of the mill cooler. It’s not the same cooler you would take for a day on the beach or at the ballpark. This cooler is tough, dependable and rugged, just like the outdoorsman! It is made to keep foods, like that left over birthday cake or treats, and drinks cool and fresh for days, 3 or 4 days as a matter of fact, not just for a few hours!
Give the hard-working outdoorsman the gift of relaxation for his birthday. Get him a new fishing rod and reel, bait and lures, a tackle box and any other accessories for a tranquil day of fishing on the lake, or in the ocean! Don’t forget the lounger fishing chair with a rod holder, so he can tip down his hat, and relax peacefully and comfortably while awaiting that tug on the line of his greatest fishing catch!
A compass is a gift that is so important for any outdoorsman to have! Whether heading to a well known and familiar area of the woods, hiking a familiar trail, or exploring somewhere new, a compass is a vital tool to have and keep available. It helps to navigate familiar and new area, even when the sun is not shining, and will keep him going in the right direction. It will get him back in time for his birthday celebration, and every time!
Hiking boots are a must have for any outdoorsman. He needs something strong and sturdy gripping the ground under his feet. Perfect for a steady and clear path, rough terrain, or for climbing the side of a mountain, hiking boots are the ideal birthday gift for him!

With a Survival Backpack, he will have what he needs in an emergency, with most survival kits being equipped for 72 or more hours. It’s a birthday gift that lets him know his safety is your priority too!
Even the most rugged outdoorsman needs to take a break, wind down and eat! Why wouldn’t he be hungry with all he does outdoors? Give him a gift he, and his stomach, will enjoy. Get a birthday gift basket for him! After all, he deserves a gift basket full of sweet gourmet treats and snacks on his birthday.
