BEST PLACE TO BUY A GIFT FOR AN OUTDOORSY TYPE (2007)

Cabela's

If you've got rugged guys and gals to buy for — people who fish, hunt, camp, or generally stomp around in the dirt — be glad Cabela's has a huge, theme-park-like retail store. Why be a gift-giving martyr when you can enjoy yourself? These genius outfitters offer something for everyone. Things like candles, jewelry, fresh fudge, toys, books, baby clothes, and home décor (okay, as long as you favor bears and moose). Check out genuine trout, bass, bluegills, and catfish cavorting in a 40,000-gallon walk-through aquarium. Visit the cafeteria and enjoy a wild boar deli sandwich, venison bratwurst, or bison burger — or watch in horror as others do, depending what floats your boat. (Boat sold separately.) Kids, by the way, love it here, so strap 'em into the cart, get a slice of pizza, and just stay away from the bin full of cuddly, colorful stuffed... ammunition. Unless that's your thing.
