And with the retractable style, they’ll never get tangled (disclaimer: these straps will not help with tangled fishing lines).

iPhones make great Christmas gifts, but if you’re looking for something that costs south of $800, try helping your loved one protect the phone they already have with a GSI Outdoors Lexan Gear Box. These dry boxes provide a tight, waterproof seal to safely store phones, wallets, cameras, Go-Pros, and other small gear for those days on the boat, kayak, or raft. There are 4 different sizes available, ranging from “stocking stuffer” size to “under the tree” size.

MaxxTow Trailer Step

Give them a boost when climbing in their boat, launching it, or tying it down with the MaxxTow Trailer Step. It mounts directly to their boat trailer tongue or frame and allows easy access to tall boats (or boats that sit on tall trailers). The non-slip step surface ensures solid footing, and the powder coat resists corrosion, making this the perfect choice for wet marine environments.

Your camper might not mind getting their hands dirty—but their car is another matter. Help them protect their seats from mud and moisture with this non-slip, collapsible etrailer Bucket Seat Protector. Easily slip it over the headrest and seat after a hike, bike ride, beach day, or float trip. It’s waterproof and machine washable, plus it’s small enough to fit in the glove compartment on those days when they’re not covered in yuck.

REDARC TowPro Liberty Trailer Proportional Brake Controller

Great gifts do come in small packages! Many electric trailer brake controllers have a clunky, big box that folks knock their knee on – but not the TowPro Liberty! It gives your favorite tower a tool for smooth, safe proportional trailer braking and integrates into the vehicle’s dash or console for a from-the-factory look – all for just $135.

It’s a gift for the tailgater, the camper, the fishing enthusiast, the beach-goer—basically, if they spend any time outdoors and have a van or SUV, they’ll love this portable Rightline Gear Tailgating Canopy. They still enjoy full access to their cargo area but get to avoid the blazing sun or untimely downpour. The canopy just secures to their vehicle’s hatch, and boom—instant shelter.

This rechargeable Duracell Jump Starter quickly restarts dead batteries on gas and diesel cars, boats, trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles. And it doesn’t stop at just reviving dead batteries—this multitasking beast also has a built-in tire inflator, a 12V port for accessories, and a USB port for charging dead smartphones or other devices (you know, the ones that always seem to die right when you need them most). It’s the perfect companion to help your loved one out of any emergency when you can’t be there in person.

Maybe they’re short, maybe their vehicle is tall, or maybe it’s a little of both…either way, they could use a handy stool like this Powerbuilt Tire Step. It brings all the parts they need within reach, making it perfect for loading gear on a roof rack, washing the windshield, or working under the hood. Whatever they need it for, this little lightweight step will make a huge difference!
