Yesterday we posted, “Metal Detectors as Christmas Gifts for Him.” But how about the ladies in your life? Many women are discovering the hobby of metal detecting, so today’s post is all about Christmas gifts for women – detector style!
The Perfect Gift for Women from your Holiday Gift List
Ready to start your Holiday shopping? The perfect gift idea for all the ladies on your list may just be a metal detector. Often thought of as a hobby for the guys, more and more women are getting into metal detecting – and for good reason. Metal detecting is a fun and exciting pastime that gets you up and outside for exercise, helps you learn more about your area as well as history in general, and, makes it possible to find priceless treasure. With all this to offer, why not introduce your wife, girlfriend, mother, daughter, or granddaughter to metal detecting this Holiday season by giving her a metal detector or accessory!
If the woman you’re shopping for hasn’t been metal detecting before, there are a variety of metal detectors that are ideal for new users. These machines feature easy to use, “turn on and go” technology; which means you can begin using the machine right out of the box without knowing much if anything about metal detecting.
Some metal detectors we like to recommend for new users include:
Bounty Hunter Legacy 2500
Bounty Hunter Platinum with 8″ Search Coil
Fisher F-2 Go for either the Pinpointer combo or Search Coil combo kit
Garrett Ace 250
Teknetics Delta 4000
Tesoro Silver uMax
If you’re Holiday shopping list includes a woman who is already into metal detecting, there have been a lot of interesting developments recently and she might appreciate a new machine. Most newer metal detectors have incorporated recent advances in technology to provide users with an enhanced experience. For example, companies like Bounty Hunter, Garrett, and many others are including large LCD displays on their newer models to show users a variety of information about the target that’s under that ground, including it’s depth, and shape. You’ll also find new metal detectors weight less than previous models, and, they’re easier to use as well even when sporting an advanced feature set.
Some of our favorite metal detectors for more advanced detectorists include:
Bounty Hunter Platinum Pro with 11″ DD Search Coil
DetectorPro Headhunter Underwater
Fisher F-19 in Pink Camo or Green Camo Colors
Garrett AT Pro for all-around unit or Garrett AT Gold for Gold Nugget Prospecting
XP DEUS Top-end, Lightweight and Completely Wireless
Don’t forget metal detecting tools and accessories either.
Whether she’s new to metal detecting or an experienced pro, the ladies on your Holiday shopping list are sure to appreciate a new digging tool, carrying case, headphones, sand scoop, or other metal detecting accessory. Be sure to look for high quality brands like Lesche, Treasure Products and Garrett to name a few so your Holiday gift is sure to give her many memories as she uses it over the years.
There’s no reason to drag yourself all over town trying to give her yet another pair of earrings or that mug or pair of slippers you give her every Holiday. Instead, give her a metal detector and you’ll give her a gift that will offer years of excitement, activity, and maybe even treasure!
