Camo clothing is so popular that just about anywhere you go these days you’re likely see someone wearing it. And it’s not just teenagers and young adults, grandparents are even getting in on the act. In fact, some people are such big camo aficionados that they have their clothing divided into three categories—hunting camo, work camo, and dress camo! If you’re shopping for a gift for the camo lover in your family, you won’t go wrong with these three well-camouflaged gift ideas.

Camo Hoodie

A hoodie is one of the most versatile pieces of outerwear a person can own, and for those who love camo, a camouflaged hoodie is even better. Hoodies are made from a wide variety of different materials, and because of that all are not created equal. An old-fashioned, all-cotton hoodie might keep you warm when it’s brisk out, but if it gets wet it will stay wet for a long time. Hoodies made of new high-tech fabrics that are breathable and made to wick moisture away from the skin and dry quickly are very popular but are also usually very expensive. Hoodies made from a mix of cotton and polyester or other manmade fibers yield a good tradeoff between price and performance.

Camo Shirt

Next to a hoodie, camo shirts are probably as good as it gets for real camo lovers. Of course, you can get them in every style from sleeveless t-shirts all the way up to button-up dress shirts with button-down collars. And you can get all of those different types of shirts in a wide variety of camouflage patterns. To choose the right one for the camo lover in your family, consider how they’ll likely use it. If someone is going to be hanging out, drinking beer, and playing poker with buddies, a simple sleeveless t-shirt might be the perfect gift for him. But if he’s going to be wearing it to school, church, or an NRA banquet, a nicer, more formal camo shirt would probably be a better choice.

Camo Cargo Shorts

Camo hoodies and shirts aside, camo lovers who really want to make a fashion statement know that there are few better ways to do so than by sporting a new pair of camouflaged cargo shorts the next time they head to the grocery store. Most camo shorts come in fairly long styles, although if you look hard enough you can probably find your camo lover a pair of retro-style camo short-shorts—likely much to the chagrin of his significant other. In all seriousness, a pair of camo cargo shorts is quite functional and will help your camo-loving family member stay cool in the summer while also giving him plenty of pocket space to haul all the stuff guys like to haul around in their pockets.
