Video Gift Ideas for Less Than $100

No matter what time of year, there always seems to be a party, occasion, get-together, or something that calls for some kind of gift. Last-minute panic gift-getting often leads to questionable choices that may cause you to be excluded from the next party or two—hey, the drug store was closing and all they had left was a combination manicure/toe-nail fungus kit and I didn’t want to show up empty handed. So, don’t let this happen to you. Read on for a guide to some of the best video-related gifts for less than $100, suitable for most any occasion.

Improvising a Home in the Outdoors

Hopefully, you’ll only sleep outdoors because you want to, not because you have to. But having some kind of emergency shelter at the ready can make a big difference in your comfort and well-being, should circumstances force you to spend some time living outside.

Recommended Tents for Emergency Preparedness

A tent can be, and often is, a key piece of emergency preparedness equipment—and when there’s no emergency, you can use it for fun things like camping.

Fun in the Sun without the Fuss: Beach Gear Buying Guide

Since we’re older and we’re all married, and many of us have kids, going to the beach is decidedly more complicated.

The Pre-Game Party: Essential Tailgating Gear

I went to my first NFL game when I was about 14 years old—and I went with a group of fairly affluent people who were also raging superfans. We drove to the game in a purpose-bought touring van with a custom interior, complete with a team-matched color scheme, a refrigerator, card table with six swiveling captain’s chairs, a hot plate, and microwave.  As a naïve kid who wasn’t that much into football, I figured going to the game like that was the exception rather than the rule. Then we got to the parking lot and, boy, was I wrong.

Camping 101: A Beginner's Guide to Life Outdoors

Fresh air scented with pine needles, evenings around a campfire, and a night sky full of stars: for a great many people, camping is the ultimate getaway. More than 22 million Americans enjoyed some kind of camping in 2014, reports the Outdoor Industry Association. Some like it active and adventurous, others lazy and restful, but all find it restorative for body and spirit. As George Washington Sears wrote under the pen name Nessmuk, in 1891, “We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it.”

Holiday 2012: Gifts for Kids

Everybody wants something better for their children than they had for themselves. It’s a function of the American dream. It’s also a manufacturer’s dream. The hottest new toy can create a frenzy around the holiday season that can only be duplicated in certain shark-infested waters in the Pacific.

Underwater Camcorders

I could begin by listing all the ways that underwater videography is useful for those looking to shoot content in and around water, but let’s get down to the truth of the matter: it just looks cool. Shooting video underwater makes even the clunkiest of movements slow and graceful.
