A Sooner State Gift Guide

Like most paddlers, my wife and I have little desire to spend our weekends at a shopping Mall just for gift shopping. Also, we have family spread out across the nation. Consequently, many of our best gift bargains are found online. We pay a little more for shipping, but it beats buying gas and fighting the crowds.  Also, Amazon carries a number of hard-to-find books about Oklahoma.

Usually, I just recommend buying a few cases of Oklahoma wine and spreading the bottles around.  Our paddler's apparel page offers some great Sooner State gift ideas as well.  For me, the perfect gift offers several of the following traits: intimate, useful, unexpected, needed, something I would want for myself, something they would not buy for themselves.  In many ways, a paddling PFD makes the perfect gift. Getting someone a high end life vest makes it more likely that they will wear it... rather than sit on it.

Here are some other pointers to some other great Oklahoma gifts to delight the Oklahoman on your shopping list or if you are just looking for a laugh try this Oklahoma Gag Gifts page.

Below you will find a list of great Oklahoma gift ideas for folks who love Oklahoma. Most Oklahoma gift guide sites are focusing on OU Sooners and OSU Cowboys gear, because we Okies do like our football. However, let no one deny our love for four letter words like: camp, hunt, fish & beer!
