1. Gifts under $20

Multifunctional tubular collar

It's the essential outdoor accessory. Available in an infinite variety of colours and patterns, the tubular collar serves as a neck warmer, balaclava, toque, or headband... to name but a few practical uses. Effective in protecting the human face from frostbite and preventing sunburn or a mosquito attack, the multifunctional collar will prove its usefulness on every outing, whatever the season. Some brands use materials such as merino wool or other technical fibers, if you’re willing to pay a little bit more. Whether camouflage-coloured, with trout designs, or just plain and simple, this is an item that’s sure to please. Easy to find, the tubular collar is available at many of Sépaq's Boutique Nature outlets.

Hand and foot warmers

Perfect for hunters and anglers who have it all – including the chills –   heat packs for hands or feet often prove to be a heroic way to conquer a long cold day. Once activated, they release gentle heat for hours. Inexpensive, disposable versions remain popular, but more and more reusable models (battery-powered or with reversible thermal reaction) are coming onto the market. Although more expensive, they’re a wiser – and greener – investment for regular users. For the more techno-savvy who want the ultimate in warming, rechargeable battery-powered insoles, socks, and heated gloves are worth considering, budget permitting of course.

2. Gifts between $20 and $50

Comfort seat

Here's a little accessory that's sure to be the envy of many. Simple, space-saving, and light to carry in any situation, the insulated closed-cell foam seat maximizes comfort no matter where the user chooses to sit. Goodbye to wet, cold, hard surfaces when it's time for a lunch break, or during long hours in a hunting blind or a rowboat. For even greater comfort, inflatable versions or those with adjustable backrests are just the ticket.

Insulated bottle

There's nothing more comforting than starting or ending a day in nature than by admiring the scenery on the horizon, with a favourite beverage in hand. A quality insulated mug or bottle – with a completely sealable lid – will always be a lasting gift that’s greatly appreciated by the rugged woodland explorer on your list. Whether on the road or at camp, life will be much more pleasant with a hot, full-bodied, or chocolatey beverage. Cheers, everyone! Down the hatch!

3. Gifts between $50 and $100

Basic technical clothing

Did you know that in most cases cotton is a no-no? Cotton garb may be fine for sedentary city life, but it's much better to use synthetic or woolen garments for adventures in nature. To keep anglers and hunters comfortable, basic garments with technical properties make all the difference on the skin: they dry faster, stay warmer even when wet, and minimize odors. From underwear to complete ensembles and high-performance T-shirts, there's no shortage of choices for dressing your adventurers without breaking the bank.

Mosquito repellent kit

Insects shouldn't spoil the fun of hunting and fishing trips. Often overlooked by those primarily concerned, the accessories that stand in the way of the most voracious forest vampires are more complex, intriguing, and effective than ever before. First of all, a quality head net. Choose ultra-fine mesh to keep out those stinging midges, and black to maximize visibility. Alternatively, an anti-mosquito top (with or without pants of the same make-up) will appeal to bite-sensitive souls and those who like to head deep into the wilderness. Also not to be underestimated are diffusers of various shapes and sizes, aroma lamps that create an effective protective bubble and chase away insects within a radius of a few metres. 

4. Gifts over $100

Personal flotation devices

Give the gift of safety! It's all too easy for folks to be tempted to take to the water, whether for fishing or hunting, without slipping on a personal flotation device (PFD). Today, finding one that’s appropriate, attractive and, above all, comfortable is a cinch! This unobtrusive device will ensure the wearer's safety. For those more reluctant to don a PFD, a quality inflatable model suited to the activity they’re pursuing will be a real eye-opener. Yes, they even come in camouflage!

Portable heater

There are folks who want to stay warm anywhere, anytime, even in the woods! For the naturally chilly, a portable heater is an asset they won't be able to do without, whether at camp or in a hunting blind. Fueled by propane, these heaters are quick and efficient at delivering warm air, while taking up very little space. While care must be taken wherever the heater is used, and a certain amount of ventilation must be ensured, home comfort is pretty much at hand.

Sépaq packages

For hunting and fishing enthusiasts, the ultimate gift is a comfortable stay in Sépaq accommodations. What more could anyone ask for than an exclusive wildlife destination and an exceptional place for a stop-over right on the land? Everywhere in the province, the great outdoors awaits the hunters and anglers you want to spoil. From simple lakeside cabins to complete Service + packages (including a companion guide), there's something for every budget and group size. Not sure what to choose? Sépaq gift vouchers will come to the rescue!
