Gift Ideas for Men Who Love to Hunt



Gift Ideas for Men Who Love to Hunt


I come from a long line of Hunters, Fishermen, and guys who just LOVE the outdoors.  Seriously...they are ALL hunting right now as I write this!  Now while I didn't inherit the same love of hunting, I am constantly buying gifts for the guys in my life and never know what to get them.

I have asked my dad, brother, husband, and father-in-law their ultimate wish list and here are the results.  They picked a lot of the same items which tells me it's a great gift idea!  Hopefully this will help you make the outdoorsmen in your life happy when he opens his gifts!  These are all UNDER $100 and there is something for every level of hunter and outdoor man.

(This is not my "prettiest" post ever but I think the information is super good!)

Just click on the links below to go directly to Amazon to buy them for your manly man:

No Complain November Part 4

We are doing a "No Complain" November Challenge.

I hope you are enjoying this little series this month and trying to keep your complaining down and your gratitude up!

Okay the verse for this week is: 

Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.


Meditate on this verse.  Share this verse card on social media so others can know about this challenge.  Write it on the tablet of your heart :)

My little thought for today is to evaluate your "problems."  My husband was just promoted and is now the newest police pilot in the state :)  I am so proud of him and we are so excited for this new chapter in our lives.  As soon as he was promoted, the "problems" with saying goodbye, moving, etc. started to creep in.  I complained about the list of things I need to do like change our address, call all of our utilities, and how I wasn't going to be able to set up my Christmas tree when I wanted to.

Then today in bible class, I looked at two young girls at my church, one who just lost her dad this week, and another who's mom was just placed in hospice.  I couldn't believe I was complaining when they were both in such grief.  One of my friends was smiling even though her life is really difficult right now.  Take some time to comfort those around you who have something they are dealing with and remember that someone might LOVE to have your problems instead of their own.

Please share your thoughts and experiences from the last few days and share this challenge on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #nocomplainnovember so we can spread the joy :)

No Complaining November Part 3

We are doing a "No Complain" November Challenge.  Click here to start from the beginning!

I hope you are enjoying this little series this month and trying to keep your complaining down and your gratitude up!

Okay the verse for this week is: 

Philippians 2:14:  Do everything without complaining or arguing.

Philippians 2:14:  Do everything without complaining or arguing.

Meditate on this verse.  Think about it when you feel like you are about to become angry or annoyed.  Share this verse card on social media so others can know about this challenge.  Write it on the tablet of your heart :)

My little thought for today is to really think about what you complain about and if it's necessary.  If I have a headache, my husband ALWAYS knows about it.  Why do I feel the need to tell him every time?  Can he do anything about it?  Nope.  This month I have tried to keep the little complaints to a minimum because when you tell people these tiny complaints every single day, it starts to add up to one big negative conversation over time.

A social media side note:  If you have a headache or are tired, your 853 friends on Facebook really don't need to know about it either.  :)  So next time you have a tiny gripe or complaint, think it and keep it in.  Unless you think you need medical attention :)
