Discover some treasures while on vacation at the beach. Metal Detecting during your travels will add adventure to your trip and assure some great memories.

Electronics and gadgets are fun for everyone, so be sure to include women on your tech gift list!  Women are definitely joining men in the metal detecting craze. After all, who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Recent metal detecting headlines include: amateurs uncovering ancient artifacts, hoards of coins found, shipwreck treasures and gold Roman artifacts. That’s why you’ll see a full spectrum of hobbyists swinging metal detectors– women and children; young and old!

Why the Woman on Your List will be Thrilled with a Metal Detector

When it comes to tech gifts, most women already have smart phones, tablets, cameras, etc. And experts advise against cutting-edge technology for holiday gifting. A smart speaker that controls home lighting and answers questions sounds cool, but it’s so new, the uses are unclear. On the other hand, metal detectors are fun and exciting. Hobbyists get outside, enjoying activity and exercise. The best metal detectors for women are lightweight and user-friendly (especially if she is a beginner). And an all-purpose detector is a great place to start. This way, the woman on your list can get into treasure hunting by detecting for coins, jewelry and relics. Then, if she enjoys a particular niche, she can choose a specialty detector down the line.

No idea what to get the man on your holiday list? It is hard to buy gifts for men because they often go out and buy whatever they want.

Luckily, there is a fail-safe gift he’ll actually love—a metal detector! Metal detectors can find gold, silver, copper, bronze and more.

Make Money and Have Fun with a Metal Detector!

Metal detecting is a hobby, treasure quest and a chance to make money! Intriguing and exciting, hobbyists can easily locate jewelry with precious stones, valuable coins and relics from years ago. The possibilities are endless with a metal detector! Just a few years ago, a couple found millions of dollars in gold coins on their property! Metal detectors are fun & spontaneous, lightweight and easy to use.

Metal detectors are available at all price points: entry-level, mid-range and higher-end. It’s helpful to read an article before deciding on a specific model.

Got a Scuba Diver or Snorkeler on Your Holiday List? Check Out Underwater Metal Detectors!

Grab your underwater metal detector and head for the beach!

Grab your underwater metal detector and head for the beach!

Do you have a tropical vacation planned over the winter? The Mexican Caribbean or destinations like Jamaica or the Cayman Islands are ideal spots for snorkeling or scuba diving with a metal detector. There are breath-taking reefs and shipwreck sites to investigate. Closer to the beach, snorkeling with a metal detector could uncover fascinating foreign treasures.

An underwater metal detector is the perfect gift for the scuba diver on your holiday list! It opens up a whole new realm of underwater possibilities. Underwater metal detectors are different than standard all-purpose detectors because they are fully submersible. Many underwater detectors operate at depths of up to 200 feet! They are highly specialized models that can withstand the pressure of deep water conditions. If you are purchasing an underwater metal detector, pay attention to the maximum depth suggestions, because some land & water models are only submersible to 15 feet. This would be more appropriate for snorkeling or shallow water hunting. Be sure to check out MetalDetector.com’s 2016 HOLIDAY SALE for savings on underwater metal detectors!

Here are some of our Best-Selling Underwater Metal Detectors:

Halloween 2016: Compassionate Detectorist Helps Widow Find Husband’s Lost Ring

Tom Shively and Catherine Tucker show the metal detecting equipment that helped find a lost wedding band. Catherine Tucker said she could not stop crying after finding her late husband's ring.

Tom Shively and Catherine Tucker show metal detecting equipment that helped find a lost wedding band. Catherine said she could not stop crying after finding her late husband’s ring.

Metal detectorists love their hobby for many reasons. First of all, there’s the thrill of the hunt. Secondly, there is the possibility of uncovering extremely valuable treasure: coins, jewelry, relics and even gold. Yet another passion of detectorists is helping out other people. Kind-hearted and compassionate, many detectorists use their expertise to help others locate sentimental lost items. This was the case recently when a seasoned hobbyist helped a distraught woman who lost her late husband’s ring while handing out Halloween candy.

Lost Ring Passing Out Halloween Candy

Catherine Tucker, a mother of two from mid-Michigan, became a widow three years ago when her husband died in a motorcycle accident. A former Air Force Lieutenant, husband Chris left the military to stay home with his daughters. Chris’s tragic motorcycle crash occurred on the day of his daughter’s birthday. Catherine had to sell her own wedding ring after the accident; and all she had left was her husband’s wedding band. After passing out Halloween candy, she realized the ring was missing and put out a plea on social media to look for the ring.

“Treasure Tom” to the Rescue!

Thankfully, Tom Shively (a.k.a. “Treasure Tom,” of Holt, MI.) read the story and offered his detectorist experience. Shively spent 80 minutes methodically searching Tucker’s yard with his metal detector. Tucker thanked him and told him to give up, but Shively asked for a few more minutes. Ten minutes later, he heard a faint, high-pitched tone. Sure enough, he found the ring! It had fallen upright in the grass and someone had stepped on it. Tucker was eternally grateful and emotional—and in the end, Shively would not accept a reward.

If you are inspired to take up metal detecting (whether to help others or make a profit), now is the time to get started. Technological advancements have made even entry-level units VERY efficient. Any hobbyist can easily locate lost valuables and treasures with a newer metal detector!

Here are some of the most affordable and popular entry-level detectors available today:
