9 Gift Ideas For Your Wildland Firefighter

The Supply Cache Blogger |

You might be thinking that it's a little late to be Christmas shopping, but if you are anything like me, procrastination is unavoidable and you are now scrambling to get everything organized before the holidays. No matter what you are celebrating though, it can be hard to find the right present for everyone. Here are just a few great gift ideas for the firefighter in your life:

  1. Smokey Bear Blanket ($49.95) A true classic, Smokey the Bear has been a symbol for wildland firefighters since 1944. One of the most popular Smokey posters has now been crafted into a large blanket (48" x 67").
  2. "WTF - Where's The Fire" T-Shirt ($17.00-19.50) One of many firefighter-centric t-shirts available, this crew neck shirt is a great way to show support and a sense of humor. Available in Red or Gray.
  3. Eric Marsh Foundation Hoodie ($40.00) Remember these 19 brave men who gave their life in the line of duty and help other firefighters and their families in the process. It's a win-win for all involved.
  4. Wildland Firefighter Foundation Magnet ($5.00) Started by the Wildland Firefighter Foundation in Boise, Idaho, the proceeds from this ribbon go directly to the foundation. 
  5. Jetboil Flash ($99.95) Great for life on the fire line, this portable boiler can heat up 2 cups of water for soup, hot drinks, or freeze-dried meals in just about two minutes.
  6. Firefighter Mug ($11.95) This sleek stainless mug is decorated with a wildland firefighter script on the side. Coffee is always IN on the fireline.
  7. Artwork Wildfires create some of the most amazing opportunities for artwork. There are plenty of artists out there who have captured some incredible moments, but a personal favorite of mine is Jim Reed, an artist (and retired firefighter) based out of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
  8. "Only You" Smokey T ($32.00) Another great fire-centric t-shirt option, this is perfect for any firefighter whose ever spiked out! Please read up on The Landmark Project if you click the link. It is a great cause.
  9. Dragonwear Both fashionable and useful, these FR garments are coveted on cold mornings, controlled burns, and anywhere fighting fire happens late into the season- which seems to be an awful lot of places these days. Wrap your giftee in warmth. Perhaps the single best gift you can give.
