Valentine’s Day is almost upon us! Have you got the perfect gift for the outdoorsy man in your life? If not, there’s no need to panic. 

We’ve found 5 Valentine’s gift ideas for outdoorsy guys. If you’re still looking for something for your man, why not have a look at some of these ideas? 

They’re sure to put a smile on his face and a spring in his step, and get him excited about his next outdoor adventure! 

New Fishing Gear 

Fishing can be done in all seasons, and one of the best gifts you can give your man is some new fishing gear! Whether he’s an avid angler or a newbie interested in trying it out, he’ll appreciate some great equipment. 

If he’s new to it, get him his first rod, some brightly colored lures to catch bass or an ice fishing rod, for when the season changes. 

If fishing is more than just a hobby, then look at getting him a telescopic fishing rod. This rod can be stored in a toolbox or even behind a car seat, where it’s within easy reach. 

A fish finder may be a nice addition to his fishing gear, if he doesn’t already have one. This will allow him to map his favorite fishing spots, as well as find the best spot to cast a line. 

A Smart Watch 

Smart watches come with a variety of features that the outdoorsy guy will love, whether he’s into hiking, skiing or playing a round of golf. 

Guys who love being out in the wilderness will find plenty of use in one of these. Your guy can track his heart rate while monitoring the weather and altitude, as well as using GPS to get to his preferred camping spot. 

Most smart watches can also be used to track specific sports like hiking, running, strength training or skiing, so your guy won’t be limited in how he uses it. 

If he’s an avid golfer, then look at the Garmin range of watches. He would be able to download golf course maps, and some of them include unique golf activity tracking features. 

Smart Shoes 

If your guy loves running, then consider getting him a pair of smart shoes. These work similarly to a smart watch, except all the tracking is done in your footwear. 

He’ll be able to track his fitness stats including distance, calories burned and steps. Shoes like the Under Armour HOVR allow you to sync the shoes with a mobile device or smart watch, so he can go back and compare later. 

Depending on the smart shoe that you’re looking at, you’ll find that they’re not only cushioned but can come with a built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, GPS and pressure sensors. 

With all the data that can come with a smart shoe, your guy would be able to use this fancy footwear to improve his overall running performance. 

A Multi-Tool 

A multi-tool like the Leatherman can come in extremely handy in the Great Outdoors, especially if you need to cut fishing line or open a can of spaghetti. 

Most multi-tools come with a variety of useful tools, including a knife, scissors, pliers, and screwdrivers that can handle any outdoor or indoor task. Depending on where you buy, you may be able to customize the multi-tool, or choose between an 18 or 21 multi-tool. 

If your guy isn’t the type to carry something like that with him, look at getting him a multi-tool bracelet instead, like the Leatherman Tread Black Bracelet. It’s not only easy to customize, but it looks stylish as an accessory, too. Who knows, it may save the day one day! 

An Outdoor Experience 

Turn Valentine’s weekend into a road trip, complete with memorable outdoor experiences that the two of you can do. Go horseback riding on the beach, learn paddle boarding or go for a romantic evening kayak and watch the sunset together. 

The next day, catch the sunrise over picturesque landscapes and vistas from a hot air balloon. See if there are any breweries or distilleries in the area where you can pop in and have a tasting. 

If you both enjoy hiking, then pack your backpacks and head off to the perfect spot where you can have a romantic picnic. 

Tailor the weekend to your outdoorsy guy and his preferences. Although you’ll be taking part in everything, it’s still a gift from you to him! 


This year may be the best Valentine’s Day yet for your guy! Make sure you’re getting him something he’s likely to get plenty of use out of, but these 5 ideas are well worth looking into if he’s an avid outdoors person. 

Whatever you do for your man, put some thought and care into it and he’s guaranteed to love it. Pair a gift with an outdoor experience for the ultimate Valentine’s weekend!
