Give Kids a Holiday Gift That Keeps On Giving With A Metal Detector

The modern and easy to use Bounty Hunter Gold Metal Detector

The modern and easy to use Bounty Hunter Gold Metal Detector – a great choice for kids.

Giving children a gift that keeps on giving is often something we strive for during the Holidays, but rarely do gifts for kids actually end up meeting this lofty goal. Metal Detectors for kids are different though. When you give your son, daughter, grandchild, niece, nephew or other lucky child a metal detector this Holiday season, you’ll be giving them a gift that will give back for many years to come in a variety of ways.

Introducing children to metal detecting through your Holiday gift can give them:

  • A chance to learn about history, geology, ecology, and much more.
  • Opportunities for exercise and fresh air.
  • A way to meet new people by joining metal detecting clubs and engaging with the community while out metal detecting.

Of course your Holiday gift also has the potential to give back by leading them toward valuable treasures as well. While there are many more “trash targets” dug up by metal detectorists than treasures, the potential exists to find something valuable with every outing. This alone is exciting for children and reason enough they’ll like your Holiday gift.  The other benefits of metal detectors for kids are just icing on the cake – or Holiday cookie.

To get you started here are 7 of our recommendations for the best metal detectors for kids.

Giving a gift that can give so much to its recipient isn’t always this easy. But it can be this year when you give the children on your Holiday shopping list a metal detector. Take a 2 or 3 minute read of our buying guide article (with video) entitled Selecting the Best Metal Detectors for Kids and Children.

Get Her Something She’ll Actually Like this Year and Give Her a Metal Detector

Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector For Her

The popular Garrett AT pro is a top choice for any woman on your Christmas list this year.

There are a variety of different Holiday gift ideas available today for your wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, or that other lucky woman on your shopping list. Jewelry, books, clothing, pictures, computers, and collectibles are just a few that come to mind. But have you considered giving her a metal detector this year?

Metal detectors make fantastic gifts for any lady you’re shopping for this Holiday season who enjoys time outside, exercise, opportunities to learn and discover new things, and of course, a chance at finding valuable treasure like jewelry, gold, antiques, coins and more! Not only that though, metal detecting is also a hobby that you can do together, as a family, and, she can also join metal detecting clubs for further learning and fun with this unique hobby.

With all of these benefits it’s easy to see that when you give her a metal detector it will end up being something she actually likes and uses throughout her life, not just a gift she’ll smile about and put in her drawer. This isn’t a benefit many Holiday gifts for her will offer. So, why not consider giving her a metal detector this Holiday season and give her a gift she’ll remember for many Holidays to come.

Here is a list of the top 11 metal detectors for her to get you started. You can also find metal detecting accessories including digging shovels, pinpointers, carrying cases and more to add to this special gift idea for her.

For girls ages 8 and under we recommend the Bounty Hunter Junior Target ID metal detector.

Making sure all the special guys on your list are happy can be easy when you check out last week’s blog post “Why you should give him a metal detector this holiday season.”

Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Review – Waterproof Pinpointer from Garrett

The Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is currently one of the most requested metal detector accessories we have in stock; and with very good reason. Even the pros are excited about this fully submersible, all terrain hand held pinpointer and you’re sure to be too.

“The Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT has taken my detector results to the next level. Super accurate, all weather and easy to use.” – Customer review submitted by Bill S.

Garrett ProPointer AT Pinpointer

Garrett Pro-Pointer AT Pinpointer

It’s based on the already fantastic Garrett Pro-Pointer II but, like the Garrett AT Pro, Garrett AT Gold and new Garrett AT Max metal detectors, their Pro-Pointer AT also includes all of the enhancements users have requested over the years. This has made for a spectacular product that detectorists are understandably really thrilled to use.

Waterproof Pinpointer

One of the most well known features of the Garrett Pro-Pointer AT handheld pinpointer is that it can be submersed in up to 10 ft underwater. This makes it ideal for SCUBA diving with your metal detector as well as for those all terrain treasure hunting excursions.

This pinpointer has a lot of other neat things to offer metal detectors too including a “lost alarm” that will alert you after the pinpointer has been unused for 5 minutes; an invaluable feature that will help you find the pinpointer if it’s lost in the field, as so many are! Garrett also gave the Pro Pointer AT a nice bright color to make it easy to find as well. We want you to be in-the-know, so when you hear someone say “Garrett carrot”, that’s their Pro-Pointer AT!

In addition to these features you’ll get to enjoy a fast re-tune which is important especially when you’re searching in mineralized ground. The Pro-Pointer AT also has a 360 degree detection area, vibration and sensitivity controls, and an LED light so you won’t miss anything. With a feature set like this users are raving about this hand held pinpointer.

Here are just a sampling of the customer reviews and comments we’ve received regarding the Pro Pointer AT:

Customer feedback on the Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT.

Customer feedback on the Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT.

Bill S: “Next Level – The Garrett Pro-Pinpointer AT has taken my detector results to the next level. Super accurate, all weather and easy to use. No matter how small the target, it will let you know.

Thomas V: “I have been metal detecting for 20 years, sometimes it takes some people a long time to get it right. I got a Pro-Pointer (Garrett) and I can cut my time looking for my target 75 percent. Get one! I also got a better digging tool. I have more fun now.

Michelle H: “I gave this to my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he is over the moon about it.

Robert Hoover: “This Probe is Incredible! Metals can’t hide from THIS probe. It will tell on metal more than a little sister about your secrets. Price is better than anything even IF close to comparable. One of my grandsons realized that it detected BETTER than his toy detector and used it by itself to find targets. Lots of targets. He called it his “Golden Carrot”. This probe is worth every penny and getting it on MetalDetector.com at their sale price is AWESOME. I’ve ordered a second one to come with the ATMax. Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is my Probe of Choice!

Ken: I was hesitant about purchasing the Garrett Pin Pointer AT, but now that I have it, I kick myself for waiting so long. Really helps with not having to dig deep holes.

You’ll be able to watch a video review of the Pro Pointer AT, view a full product spec sheet and more so you can get as much information as possible on this pinpointer to be sure it’s the metal detecting accessory for you.

Give Kids a Metal Detector this Holiday Season and Give them the Gift of a New Hobby

Woman with her Garrett Ace 200 metal detector

Outdoor fun can be yours, just like this young lady with her Garrett Ace 200 metal detector.

Finding the best Holiday gift for children on your list can be hard. You want to get them something they’ll like, but also something that will bring value to their lives. Introducing them to a new hobby, like metal detecting, can be the perfect combination.

When you give kids a metal detector, they’ll love the idea of going treasure hunting and finding gold, coins, and other precious items with their new gift. And you’ll love that they’re learning about history, geology, electronics, environmentalism and more all while enjoying fresh air and exercise too. Not only that, when you give kids the gift of a new hobby like metal detecting, it can end up being something that child will enjoy throughout their life, not just that morning when it’s opened.

Selecting Metal Detectors for Kids

To find the best metal detector to give to the children on your Holiday shopping list, be sure to avoid metal detectors touted as being made for kids. The machines you’ll find in the toy store may have a lower price tag, but, they’ll have a much lower success rate as well leaving you with an unhappy, frustrated metal detectorist.

Instead, give kids a metal detector that’s designed for anyone that features a lightweight construction, an adjustable handle and “set and go” controls. This combination of features will give kids a metal detector that’s a good size for them now, yet that can grow with them both in size and skill level as they explore the hobby further.

To get you started, here are the top 7 metal detectors we’d give to kids:

The Bounty Hunter Junior Target ID metal detector is perfectly sized for younger children.

The Bounty Hunter Junior Target ID metal detector.

 

 

For kids ages 8 and under, we recommend the Bounty Hunter Junior Target ID metal detector. This detector is perfectly sized for younger children, combining both comfort with easy to understand features. This is a fun metal detector for kids to use and one that will point them to treasure!

Tip – Be sure to see our video and article on selecting metal detectors for kids and children.
