Dreaming of a brown Christmas
What does Mrs. Claus do during the off-season? If she enjoys busting clays at the local shooting range then consider giving Santa’s better half a stylish and attractive shooting vest from Browning. Designed to gently hug the curves of a woman, this comfy vest offers dual full-length shooting patches with sewn-in REACTER pad pockets (pads sold separately), two-way front zipper, and interior security pocket. She will love the extra deep shell pockets trimmed with just enough pink to set her apart from the men. And if she has been a really good girl this year, consider making it a Brown Christmas by giving her a matching Browning shotgun to go with her new vest. This gift idea will be right on target for the woman shooter in your life. Browning women’s shooting vests are available at many sporting good stores or online at Browning.com.

Anything but ugly
Pink may have its limits on outdoor products, but this is one pink product that I would love to find under my Christmas tree this year and so would a lot of outdoor women. Why? Two reasons, fishing and breast cancer support, and if you had the dependability of the Shakespeare Ugly Stick that makes three good reasons to buy a Pink Ugly Stick this season. Now the lassie on your list will become the talk of fishing club when she shows up to the lake with this pink beauty in hand. Shakespeare thought of everything from the appealing pink factor to the smaller ergonomic EVA grip designed to fit a lady angler’s hands. But the best feature of rod is the fact that for every purchase of the Ugly Stick Pink, a donation is made to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. This beautiful Ugly Stick can be purchased from sporting good retailers.
The perfect companion
The outdoor lady on your list will love this handy, easy-to-use gift from Bushnell. The BackTracker GPS unit will quickly become a staple in her backpack as she heads out of camp for a day of hiking or deep into the woods to mark a new hunting location. She no longer has to fuss with all the fancy settings on the bigger units, as this device offers the perfect solution to the larger, more complicated GPS devices. Give the gift that has quickly become a must-have for many outdoorsmen and women. The BackTracker GPS Unit is available wherever GPS units are sold.
Few things aggravate us outdoorswomen more than having gear that doesn’t fit, gear that has been sized down from men’s sizes or adjusted youth sizes. LaCrosse realizes that women are a growing force in the outdoors and are designing boots specifically for female feet. Imagine her delight when she opens the box containing a great pair of lightweight, comfortable, tailored-for-women 800 gram insulated AlphaBurly boots this holiday.
Who says you can’t buy happiness? The outdoorswoman on your list will appreciate your thoughtfulness as she takes a seat on the portable ultra comfortable Hunt Comfort seat. Designed to withstand thousands of hours of use and perfect for hunting or sporting events. The Hunt Comfort seat is simply the best seat in the woods.

Pink with a purpose
Women love gifts that keep on giving and this year we have a great gift idea for that special lady on your hard-to-buy-for list. Regardless of whether the Mrs. enjoys observing nature, bird watching or attending sporting events, she will enjoy the handy 8×25 compact size or the 10×42 full-sized binoculars from Alpen Optics pink line. Alpen makes a donation to breast cancer research for each pair of pink binos it sells. Consider giving a gift this holiday season that will do good and provide year-round use for your special lady.
Peet’s for her feet
Peet’s safe and silent thermal convection drying system quickly dries all types of footwear from waders, ski boots, hunting boots and even tennis shoes. Peet’s Boot Dryer helps extend the life of footwear because the ambient warmed air reduces the mold and mildew that often grow inside damp dark places such as boots. Help keep every member of the family’s shoes dry and comfy all year long with a gift of a Peet’s Boot Dryer.
