Great Gifts for Gun Nuts

Updated on May 25, 2014

Gift Ideas for Gun Enthusiasts

When you live surrounded by gun-totin' good ol' boys and gals, gift-giving is a bit of a problem. Most gift guides for gun lovers talk about fancy high-tech stuff that you can't understand. And besides, if he wants a target-seeking reloading bench, he'll buy it himself.

Buy Pistol Mug

But this gift guide is different. Here you'll find comprehensible (if weird!) gift ideas picked out by a sympathetic non-gun nut. Some are useful, some are funny, some are rather tasteless. But that's okay, they'll make your lead-slinger's eyes light right up.

Whether you're gift-shopping for your father, husband, or boyfriend, I've found you something that's right on target. All suggestions have been smoke-tested by genuine gun nuts, attaining the gold standard reaction of "Hey, I want that!"

Shotgun Shells All the Way

My Dad had a homemade string of shotgun shell lights around the door of his loading room for years - Mom used to hang it in the living room for Christmas. Nothing evokes the coziness of home like lots of shotgun shells (for some of us, anyway!)

Shot Glasses

Shotgun Shell Pull Chain

12 Gauge Coasters

Shotguns & Shells Hooked Pillow

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Shotgun Shell Lights

Shoot Out the Lights!

A classic Colt pistol for your man cave. Just be careful how you pull that trigger!

Colt Revolver Lamp

Biting the Bullet

You know the old saying, "An armed society is a polite society"? Test this by adding ordnance to your dinner, and see if table manners improve.

Pistol Wine Holder


Cowboys, leave your holsters with the barkeep!

Pistol Flask


Keep a shot at your hip!

Gun Egg Fryer


Make rootin' tootin' eggs, pancakes, or cookies.



Freeze! Ice-Cube Tray


Give your guests a bone-chilling surprise.

50 Caliber Bullet Bottle Opener


Shoot bottles or open them - your choice.

Revolver Chocolate Mold


Chocolate: Smooth, sweet, and deadly!


Love Guns?

Clever and funny (or chilling) wall decal, with the word "love" formed from weapons.

Love Guns Wall Decal

Drastic Home Improvement

High-caliber additions make you want to come home. Also, a battery-powered drill that looks like a toy gun, for when you feel like tackling chores aggressively.

Shotgun Shell Double Light Switch Cover



Looks like the shells were hammered into the wall!

Hunting Double Outlet Cover Plate



Cute hunting lodge and rifle design for a wall outlet.

Silver Revolver Shaped Screwdriver



Affix the previous items with a handy gun-shaped screwdriver!


Guns and Roses

Three conjoined pistols shaped into a ceramic vase. It comes with artificial flowers, and it's watertight so you can put fresh flowers in it, too.

Three Guns Table Vase

Are You a Gun Nut?

Do you consider yourself a gun nut? Or a unicorn-hugging pacifist? (You're not allowed to be anything in between - the talking heads all say so!)

Are you a gun nut?

No! I will never forgive them for killing Bambi's mother - never!

No! I will never forgive them for killing Bambi's mother - never!

      Not really, although I'm very familiar with how to shoot various types of guns and I support 2nd amendment rights. Don't own a gun though.

      The answer is no. Unless you count the fact that I will not get rid of my rifle team jacket from college until the daughter is married.

      I guess I'd be a unicorn-hugging pacifist if I knew where to find a unicorn.

    Yes! The day I can buy a cologne that smells like Hoppe's No. 9, my life will be complete!

        I LOVE all of these! My family and I have the "Keep Calm Carry On" t-shirts. I highly recommend the if you buy one of these t shirts for your (under 10 yr old) child, you don't allow them to wear it to school!! The Principal gets her panties in a wad over the words!!

        I'm not a gun nut, but I like guns.

        Not a gun nut, but support the 2nd, and own an M1 Garand (1944), and a Mosin Nagant, (Russian, 1942). My boys and other half have an arsenal LOL.

        I'm not a gun nut, but I support the 2nd amendment.

          I like the colt revolver lamp, I prefer revolver than a pistol.

          Actually I might go for a gun type belt buckle. But with all my others (mostly animals) it would have to be stored in another location.

          I think I take the bling bling stuff. A woman will always fancy jewelry even if she is not a gun nut!
