Why an Archery Gift Card is the Best Present You Can Give (and Receive)

Christmas is coming up quickly, and the pressure is on to find the perfect gift. If you have a loved one that’s interested in trying archery or is already hooked on the sport, a gift card to a nearby archery shop is an excellent gift idea.

Why a gift card?

Gift cards often get a bad rap for being the choice of last-minute shoppers, but they’re a practical solution to a common problem.

Archery equipment is very personal, so unless your archer is a pro at dropping hints, you can get left guessing what they want. We promise no archer will turn up their nose at this gift because they can use it buy whatever their heart desires.

Here are some of the items they can purchase with a gift card.

Archery Lessons

Archery is a sport of constant improvement, and there’s no better way to get improve than with the help of an instructor. Your gift can buy your archer a single lesson, lesson package or help them sign up for an archery program.

Range Time

In the winter, archers flock to shoot at their local indoor range. Most ranges charge by the hour so your gift card can easily pay for several hours of archery bliss.

Arrows

Archers always need new arrows, but gifting them can be problematic because they need to be matched to the bow and the archer. If you give them a gift card, they can buy a custom set of arrows that will fit their bow and provide months of shooting pleasure.

Bow Accessories

Instead of guessing what bow, sight or arrow rest they want give them the gift that lets them buy exactly what they want. They can use it to upgrade their equipment or put together their first bow.

A new bow is the ultimate gift for an archer. Like many things in archery, bows need custom fitting. Instead of buying a bow and perhaps needing to return it, you can give them a gift card and set a date to take them to the archery shop.

An envelope with a gift card doesn’t quite capture the excitement of receiving a new bow. You can create that excitement by placing the gift card in a bow box. Archery shops usually have old bow boxes lying around, and they can give you one for your gift card presentation.

How much to give?

The hardest part about giving a gift card is determining the amount to give. Gift cards under $50 are great for small accessories, tuning services and range time. For around $100 an archer can buy arrows, bow accessories, bowstrings and archery lessons.

The cost to gift a bow or complete archery set varies widely based on the options. A beginner bow package can cost between $200 and $600 depending on the options selected.

The best thing to do is to talk to the shop about how you think your archer will use gift the card. Then the experts at the shop will suggest an appropriate amount based on the expected purchase.

The archer you’re shopping for can probably navigate to the archery shop with their eyes closed. If you aren’t as familiar, you can find the shop nearest you, here.

Does your archer love coffee as much as their bow? Allow them to revel in their love of archery every morning with a bow-and-arrow mug. It’ll give them energy to take on the day and work hard at the range.

7. Phone Cases

Our phones go with us everywhere, so they should be aesthetically pleasing, right? Make your archer’s phone easy on their eye and let them carry their love of archery in their pocket by giving them a bow-and-arrow phone case.

If your archer is so into the sport that they want to shout it from the rooftops, give them a car decal. Seeing a fun archery decal on your loved one’s car just might inspire someone else to pick up a bow and discover a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime.

For the archer who already has all the gear they need, finding the perfect gift can be daunting. We hope these tips help set your sights on some creative archery gifts. If your archer is eager to show off their archery-inspired presents after the holidays, the local archery range is the best place let loose.
