VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (WIAT) — If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for your dad, your brother, or any outdoorsman in your life, look no further than Mark’s Outdoors. Jeremy Hopkins gave us the scoop on what items are hot this Christmas season.
“Whether the person you are buying for is a hunter, a fisherman, or they just like to sit outside and drink coffee, we got them covered. We have a little something for everyone,” said Jeremy.
“You know the guy that’s the traveler, maybe a forty-eight-hour trip guy, or the guy that’s going to the hunting camp for the weekend, Orvis and Filson both have great luggage options. And the quality of these bags will last a lifetime. It’s a great investment and a gift you can feel confident about giving,” Jeremy said.
If you are looking for the latest watch trend, Jeremy says Luminox is one of the newest and hottest brands on the market.
“(The company) was known for designing and building watches for the Navy Seals. These watches are tough as nails, durable, and cannot break. A ton of guys come in here that are looking for a Luminox watch. If you got this for someone on your list, it would make them very happy,” said Jeremy.
Tumblers are another great option for anyone is likes to keep their drink warm or cold. Jeremy says customers love the new line of Orca tumblers.
“They’ll keep ice for days! They’ll keep your coffee hot all day long! Orca’s one of the companies that offers tumblers in different colors. You’ve got the pink, the sea foam green, the blue color. They actually do a coffee mug that has the handle on it. Great gift idea for Christmas time. And you can always fill the mugs with a few smaller stocking stuffers from around the store,” Jeremy said.
“Dan Moultrie and the guys have been in the game camera business for years. This year, they launched the Moultrie Mobile unit. When it takes a photo, it sends it to your phone,” said Jeremy.
Benchmade knives are the best selling brand at Mark’s Outdoors.
“These make great stocking stuffers. Everybody needs a pocketknife,” Jeremy said.
The Shimano and Diawa fishing reels are some of the smoothest and lightest weight options on the market.
“These are longtime reel and rod manufacturers that are trusted by our customers. For the fisherman in your life, this makes a great gift,” said Jeremy.
And Jeremy says you can never go wrong if you buy someone a pair of Costa sunglasses!
“They are stylish, but they are also functional. In the fall and winter months, the sun is lower in the sky. These sunglasses are great for protecting our eyes,” Jeremy said.
