posted on December 7, 2016
Christmas is almost upon us—can you believe it? If you're already starting to feel stressed out about the holidays, tackle it head-on by shopping online for all the things your outdoor-loving kid will thrill to find under the tree. From the very smallest infants to older kids, we've got something for every stocking.

1. Bass Pro Shops Baby Wild Plush Deer Lovey   
Every baby needs a blanky to cuddle! This sweet little whitetail soother measures 14 inches by 14 inches, with plush textures to snuggle and a fun True Timber camouflage pattern with your choice of pink or blue accents. There are no small parts, so it's safe for even the tiniest kids...but chances are they'll treasure it long after they need it. $14.99

2. Bass Pro Shops NXT Generation Rapid Riser Toy Compound Bow 
This fun toy compound bow is earning rave reviews on the Bass Pro site. As one parent points out, it's a "great way to teach little ones about archery and safety without them piercing anything or anyone." It's designed just like a "real" compound bow, so it works the same way, but it comes with three suction-tipped arrows (as well as a window cling target) so kids can fire away without you needing to worry about your valuables. Its sturdy construction is meant to stand up to years of use...and we bet you won't be able to resist playing with it, either. $34.99

3. Bass Pro Tulle Pink Camo Dress   
This adorable True Timber pink camouflage dress for toddlers is sure to be a hit with the little girl in your life. Constructed of jersey and nylon, it's as ready for the rough-and-tumble of the teeter-totter as it is for the more sedate attractions of holiday parties. It's fully machine-washable, so cleanup is a breeze...if, that is, you can persuade your three-year-old to take it off long enough to wash it. $22.49

4. Cabela's Carhartt Boys' Bib Overalls   
Have you got a kid who just loves to get into dirt, weeds, thorns, firewood and everything else? In that case, these Carhartt Quilt-Lined Duck Bib Overalls from Cabela's might just be as much a gift for you as they are for him (or her, come to think of it). They've got the triple-stitched toughness you expect from Carhartt, along with a cozy quilted lining that will keep your child warm on nippy days. They're sized generously with adjustable straps to fit over layers of clothing, and feature zip ankles so you can snug them over winter boots. Give your kid some gear "just like Daddy's," and they might just wind up helping Daddy with all those messy chores! $65.99

5. Cabela's Peg-Perego Polaris Outlaw Motorized Toy Vehicle  
Recommended for ages 3-7, this battery-operated toy ATV is sure to make your child the envy of the neighborhood. It has two speeds (2.5 mph and 5 mph) as well as a reverse function, rugged tires and a brushguard. It's got a passenger seat, and can hold up to 85 pounds' worth of joyous children. It has a high-speed lockout to prevent beginners from going too fast, and automatically brakes for safety. Its 12-volt battery and recharger are included. $279.99 

6. Cabela's Forest Animal-Opoly Board Game 
Just because the weather's nasty doesn't mean your kids can't learn about the outdoors while they have fun indoors. This board game, rated ages 8 and up, lets the whole family collect animals while avoiding penalties. Fun facts about the critters in question are on the back of each card. This game will provide hours of (mostly) quiet fun on rainy days! $29.99 

7. Gander Mountain TreePod Portable Hanging Tree House  
What's better than a tree house? A tree house that won't take days to build! The Gander Mountain TreePod Portable Hanging Tree House assembles (and disassembles) in minutes, so you can set it up in your backyard, or while you're camping, or at your summer cabin...everywhere! It's got a 500-pound weight capacity, so several kids can play in it together. It offers a double-sided zipper door with mesh windows, so kids can keep the bugs out as they play. It comes with a retractable ladder, guy lines and stakes so it's steady and kids can get in and out easily. Available in your choice of four colors. $324.99

8. Gander Mountain RealTree Ford F150 Remote-Controlled Truck  
Vroom, vroom! We dare you resist playing with this yourself before you get it boxed up and snugged under the tree. It's a perfect 1:10 scale model of a real Ford F-150, complete with heavy-duty rubber tires and rugged construction. Comes complete with a remote control and all the batteries, and it's sure to provide hours of entertainment for your little ones (and, let's be honest, you too). $69.99
