Outdoor Retailer: Stanley Adventure Coolers
Each summer the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, becomes the world’s largest outdoor sports industry showcase and gathering. With over 25,000 exhibitors and attendees, OR (as it’s known in the industry) is THE place to find the hot products, browse latest industry trends and see great coming-soon gear from over 1,000 outdoor lifestyle and recreational brands. The trick for a Gift Guru is to find the fun, unique, helpful and ultimately gift-able products from the thousands on hand. With what seems like acres of cool outdoor products, it’s gotta be special to catch my eye. Here’s one that would make a great gift!
The Gift: The Adventure Cooler by Stanley (two sizes at $40 & $65 coming Spring 2014)
The Scoop: Next spring, when everyone’s starting to get outdoors the Adventure Cooler will be a great gift to help them get out the door. In both 7 QT and 16QT sizes, this extremely durable cooler is backed by a lifetime guarantee. But maybe the most impressive spec of the Adventure Cooler is the 27 or 36 hours (for the 7 QT and 6 QT respectively) the cooler contents can be kept cold.
The top of the cooler has adjustable tie-downs allowing for even more food or gear to be secured on top of the cooler. And of course the the Adventure Cooler’s flat top makes are great seat to take a load off. Just a great all around cooler for work or play at a really nice price.
Gift Guru Tip: Another reason why I love a cooler as a gift is all the fun, little gifts you can place inside…gifts inside a gift! So get creative and add their favorite snack, beverage or maybe even a gift card to get a piece of camping gear (…the gear you weren’t totally sure they’d love!).
