Not sure what to get the gun girl or guy on your holiday list this year? Don’t worry. We understand the wants and needs of the average gun owner, because we are average gun owners (although we like to think of ourselves as “above average”). Since no one really wants an ugly sweater, we compiled this list to help the non-gun people in our lives buy gifts we’ll actually use and love.
Gifts for Her
Women can be particularly difficult to buy for. If you’re a dude, trying to find just the right gift for the ladies in your life can be extra hard, especially if you don’t know her size. Does she take a 9mm? Or would 5.56 fit her better?
Lucky for you, the gifts on our list are one-size-fits-all.
1. Pine Ridge 12 Gauge Shotgun Shell Coaster Set
This coaster set is perfect for the hostess who cares about her furniture and has the skills to hurt you if you mess it up. Especially well-suited for hunting or outdoor decorating themes, these hand-painted coasters look just like the bottom of a 12 gauge shotgun shell. Not only will these awesome coasters protect her wood coffee table from unsightly white water rings, they also add a splash of rugged sophistication to any decor.
2. TRADESMART Women’s Shooting Kit
Although necessary for safety, range safety equipment (like ear and eye protection) isn’t particularly fashionable...until now. This pink themed shooting kit is sure to turn heads. It includes folding ear protection muffs, tinted safety glasses with an anti-fog/anti-scratch coating, soft pink foam earplugs, and a compact carrying case with feminine pink accents.
Just make sure your gun gal isn’t turned off by girly pink-colored shooting gear. Some women consider pink shooting gear too girly for the range and might refuse to wear it. (It’s me. I’m some women.)

Gun enthusiasts can be particularly difficult to buy for during the holiday season, partly because we can be a picky bunch, and partly because our hobby is so specialized. It is often hard for loved ones to know what to buy the gun people on their list because they don’t completely understand our love of shooting.
Hopefully, this list has given you a few specific gift ideas for those special shooters in your life. Each item on our list is a unique or practical gift that would make a great holiday present for your shooting friends and family.
