What do you buy for the angler that has everything?
Deciding on Christmas presents for anyone can be a hard task sometimes. But your festive generosity is made that bit harder if you are buying for someone who has it all, such as an angler. It is usually the case that they will have all the equipment, gadgets and paraphernalia that goes along with the hobby, so it can be a bit tricky to find things they might not have.
Thankfully, we have a great list of stocking filler presents that will make your life a little easier when buying for a fishing enthusiast. You may even find that you bring a smile to their face as they come to terms with a full day inside the house wearing a Christmas jumper, instead of being outside, leaning over their nearest fishing spot.
Not only will this T-shirt allow the fishing enthusiast to have something new to wear on Christmas Day, but it will also give them a chance to name all of the fish printed on the front, keeping them entertained for at least half an hour.
It is now commonly understood that most anglers will take a smartphone with them so that they have something to play on while waiting for fish to take the bait. Since they are so close to water, it only makes sense that they need a waterproof case to cover a smartphone, just in case they have any mishaps. They will thank you later for this present.
In conjunction with taking a smartphone along on a fishing trip, keeping that gadget charged can also be an issue. That’s why a portable charger is the perfect present for the fishing fan, allowing them to remain connected to technology despite roughing it on the edge of a lake.
A little bit more focussed on the practical nature of fishing, polarised glasses will help your beloved angler to see what they are doing on particularly sunny days. The very fact that you thought of making their fishing trip better, will gain you instant brownie points.
Swiss Army Knife
Practical as well as fun, buying them a Swiss Army Knife meant for fishing fans will not only validate their hobby, it will also come in handy if they are keen on having a true ‘wilderness experience’.
What could be better? Your angler is looking a bit downtrodden after a full day of festivities including pulling crackers and eating sprouts, so you present them with their very own catch of the day. They can pretend to reel in their fish pillow in the middle of the lounge, you can take a picture of them; the possibilities are endless.
Don’t forget, there are only six weeks until Christmas so get shopping today! Check out our range of great fishing products for more inspiration.
