I have been with my boyfriend for a little over 7 months now, and I don't know what to get him. I'm 16 and he's 19. He's kind of a hick boy. He likes to hunt and he's into diesels. He likes tools, knives, and guns. For his birthday, I got him a homemade knife. I'm not allowed to buy him a gun, what should I get him?

An emergency survival kit might be nice.
Hello, my son-in-law hunts and he buys a lot of his gear from a catalogue called Cabelas. Go to their website and you can find many gifts.
Find out what kind of tools he doesn't have and get him that. Or, you could buy him some clothes. Some that look cool but also something that he could wear when he is out hunting.

How about a gift card to a sporting goods/outdoor type store so he can choose his own? Or a gift card for however many gallons of gas/diesel fuel you can afford?

What can I get my boyfriend for Christmas? He loves hunting and being outside.

Deer hunters use ammunition, portable deer stand, good buck knife for field dressing, thermaboots, insulated underwear, binoculars, small Coleman catalytic heater if the deer stand is enclosed.
Squirrel and rabbit hunters use trained Beagles or a Mountain Kur for squirrels and a black and tan, Walker, Coon hound for raccoon, and then there's the bird dogs like Spaniels and Labradors for geese, quail, and pheasant.
Check out the hunting goods department in a sports store or on the 'net. There's tons of hunting items from low end to high end merchandise. (12/02/2009)
Another simple, inelegant gift idea is hunting socks. They're not costly, usually under $10, and every hunter needs at least two extra pair. Same goes for gloves. Oh, btw, happy birthday to your boyfriend! (12/06/2009)
