For the person on your list who likes to hit the slopes during winter and have a glass of wine in the lodge afterward,
pick up this Snow Ski Wine Rack, built by craftsman Michael Bellino. This stylish way to store your vintages has received 4.5 stars over 228 reviews. With both winter and summer products, the Cyclone Buff can keep your hunter or snowboarder warm while in the woods or on the slope with polar fleece and moisture management properties, or it can keep bugs away from your angler face while keeping his or her skin cool and protected from the sun.
Franklin Shoot Again
For the sports fan who has a lounge, bar, or viewing room in his or her basement, the Franklin Shoot Again is a perfect addition to any sports sanctuary.

Warm hands warm hearts
Whether the person you shopping for enjoys going to NFL games late in the season, waiting for whitetail deer to walk by or hoping for steelhead to swim downstream, he or she can definitely use a hand warmer. Zippo makes hand warmers that produce consistent heat for 12 hours and work on the same lighter fluid that fuels your trusty Zippo lighter. In that case, give him or her something special to sit on while watching the games. It a bit pricey,
but it worth it for a unique and stylish gift for the skateboarder in your life.
