Essential Tactical Gifts
We’ve all heard the stereotype about dad getting another tie or gift card for Father’s Day, Christmas, and his birthday and there’s a reason that this is a tired trop.
It’s simply because some men are really hard to shop for.
If you’re struggling to think of a unique Christmas gift for your dad, useful gifts for your groomsmen, a birthday gift for your brother, or something special for your boyfriend or husband, you’re in the right place.
From tactical flashlights to stainless steel folding knives, this list has something for that special man in your life.
Tactical gifts are a great idea for anyone who’s been in the military, served as law enforcement, or spends a lot of time hunting, camping, or exploring the outdoors.
The idea of tactical gear is to be prepared to meet any challenge using whatever resources are available. A tactical gift is a perfect way to help him prepare for anything.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best tactical gifts available. We included a nice variety, too, so whether the man in your life is a hunter, security guard, or survivalist, you’ll surely find something here that he’s bound to love.

A tactical pen is a great weapon to have on hand for self-defense and it actually works as a writing instrument. There’s also a flashlight that runs on a single AA battery and has three different modes: high, low, and strobe.
The included rescue blanket can be used in a lot of ways. Drape it over yourself for protection from the sun or to stay dry in the rain or just as something to put between you and the ground.
