It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is here again. We all know what that means: summer holidays, the great outdoors, eating, drinking, relaxing at the beach, eating and drinking some more…and of course, struggling to find presents for all of our loved ones.
Well luckily for you I’m here to make that struggle a little easier. I’ve done some searching and found the top 10 Christmas gift ideas for the great outdoors.
Extra Large Beach Bag
Towels, sunscreen, frisbee, bucket & spade, hats, floaties, sandwiches – a trip to the beach for parents requires more stuff than a NASA space mission. They need a place to put it all. These colourful, tough, water resistant, canvas beach bags are just the thing.
With summer having well and truly arrived, now is the time to attack all of that grit and grime that’s been accumulating over the winter. Whether it’s the driveway, outdoor furniture, deck or the side of the house, a powerful though compact pressure washer such as this is the only way to get the job done.
Napoleon TravelQ BBQ
This is the perfect present for picnickers, keen campers or those who just love their barbies so much that they want to take them everywhere. This little fella easily folds up and can be wheeled just about anywhere. Don’t let the compact size fool you either; this barbie packs a punch when it comes to cooking up.
It’s been a long year. You’ve worked hard. Perhaps you deserve to buy yourself a Christmas present. Perhaps you should get that carport you’ve always wanted, so that in 2015 you don’t spend another autumn cleaning leaves, nuts, flowers and possum crap from the roof of your car. Compared to building a garage, they’re ridiculously cheap.
3 Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Set
If there’s one family member that’s hard to buy for, it’s Dad. There’s only so many “#1 Dad” coffee mugs, golf trinkets and bottles of aftershave you can get him. So this Christmas, why not get your Dad something he’ll be using for many Christmases to come? This 3-piece BBQ set is made from heavy-duty stainless steel and is beautifully finished. He’ll love it.
We are a country that loves to lounge and you can be assured there will be plenty of lounging this summer. The problem is that all of the best cushions live inside. Well, not anymore. These colourful, waterproof cushions are perfect for brightening up your outdoor setting. And being UV treated, they’ll survive the harsh Aussie sun without fading or losing their soft touch.
ProQ Smoker Box
For anyone who owns a barbie, smoker boxes make the perfect Christmas present. They’re affordable, easy to use and a great way to add a new dimension to anyone’s barbecued dishes. This ProQ box is better than most. It’s solidly made from stainless steel and is suitable for any barbie.
A compact, lightweight generator is a must-have for any outdoorsman and you need look no further than this 1200 watter. Not too big, not too small, it’ll run the appliances for your campsite, the lights for your fishing trip or the power towels for your DIY project for a solid 5 hours before needing a fill up. It’s super quiet too!
This little shed makes a great Christmas present for anyone with more stuff than storage space…so that includes everyone! With a mix of shelves, tall storage and peg boards, it’ll take care of any loose gardening equipment, sports equipment, laundry supplies and just about anything else. Despite a deceptively large capacity, it’s small enough to fit into a corner of the backyard, balcony, patio or laundry.
Napoleon Charcoal Kettle BBQ
I’ve included a BBQ on this list of Top Christmas gift ideas and I’ll finish with one too. What can I say? I really love BBQs. This one is a robust charcoal kettle for those that love the smoky flavours that only charcoal can provide.
There you have it! My list of the top 10 Christmas gift ideas for the great outdoors. Now you have no excuses for getting Mum yet another soap set or Dad yet another car cleaning kit.
