For some people, Man (or Woman) vs. Wild is their average weekend. Others just like the woodsy look for their home or closet. (You should already own a red plaid shirt, right?)
Whatever your style, we’ve curated a list of great outdoors-themed gifts for the Lumberjack or Lumberjane in your life.
1. How to Survive in The Woods
This practical book equips you for survival if you get stranded in the woods, or if you want to audition for Naked and Afraid. Broken into four sections- Sustenance, Warmth, Orientation and Safety- it’s filled with detailed instructions and illustrations that cover all scenarios.

5. Pendleton Throw Blanket
As outdoor temps drop, wrap up with this 100% wool blanket from Pendleton. Made in the USA, it comes with a leather carrier, making it easy to bring along on trips. The classic plaid design never goes out of style, whether in your car, in the tent, or draped over a chair at home.
6. Filson Double Logger Coat
This workwear-inspired coat is warm, water-repellent, and features a ton of pockets for storage. The jacket comes with a detachable hood that comes in handy during rainy season or if you’re caught outside in a storm. Well-made and well-priced, the jacket is manufactured by Filson – an American company that’s been producing hunting and outdoors gear since 1897. (We found a great version for women here).
