Every year people give cliched Christmas gifts like socks, bath sets, chocolates, candles, ornaments, etc. These gifts are often common. They end up in a dark corner of the house, in a closet, or even re-gifted.

While giving gifts, it’s the thought that counts. When you give someone one of these gifts, it shows that you didn’t think about it much and just gave them the first thing that came to your mind. So show your loved ones you care by giving them thoughtful gifts.

One such thoughtful gifts are Binoculars. You’re probably thinking that it is something you can gift only to those who are fond of hunting, trekking, camping, and other such activities, but that is not true at all. There are various diversified uses of a good pair of binoculars even to those who are not fond of such activities.

Here are a few reasons why the best binoculars can be a very good gift for this Christmas.

1. Sightseeing

If you invest in a good pair of binoculars, you can get a very high magnification of up to 20 times. For avid travelers, binoculars are certainly a useful device, it might not be a necessity for travelers, but it surely enhances the experience. You can stand on a cliff and look at the entire scenery and every single detail up close.

2. Bird Watching

Binoculars make the perfect present for a birdwatcher. It is a necessity for them. Birds are often very tiny and fly high up in the sky, away from the reach of humans and hardly in our line of sight and approaching them is no use either since they tend to fly away. So, binoculars with high magnification are a must for any birdwatcher.

3. Outdoor Adventures

There is no better gift you can give to an adventure lover. Hiking, trekking, camping, hunting. Hunters can use binoculars to stalk a pretty from a distance. Trekkers and hikers can use them to get an idea of what lies ahead. Campers can use them to look for a place to camp, a body of water, wild animals and other things.

It is not necessary that you can gift a pair to someone only if they are into such activities, you can also gift it to someone to encourage them to do such activities. Like, gifting a pair to a child or a teenager can encourage them to get out of the house and get some physical activity.

As mentioned before, binoculars have varied uses for different kinds of people. However, the requirement for everyone is not the same. While gifting binoculars, it is very important to gauge the recipient’s use of it and gift accordingly.

A pair of binoculars with a high range of magnification can be very expensive. The cost can vary, from $35 to $250. So, you need to decide if the person you are gifting the binoculars to needs a high magnification or not.

Birdwatchers, trekkers, campers, and such people need high magnification, while someone who uses binoculars for suffering doesn’t require such a high magnification.
