We’ve put together a long list of Christmas gifts for shooters that you can buy online which can be delivered directly to the recipient, should you so wish. Scroll down and you’ll find gifts for men, women, children and pets. We’re adding to the list all the time as we come across more ideas.

We’re mindful that we’re counting the pounds (never mind pennies) even more this year so we’ve found some gifts that would be very welcome for under £15. There are also others over £100 for when you’re feeling generous and a bit more flush.

And of course, a subscription to a favourite shooting magazine like Shooting Times or Sporting Gun is the Christmas gift for shooters that will keep on giving all year round. Subscribe now and save ££££ on the cover price.

Frederick Thomas grey and orange checked tweed wool 

This tie will look the part whether walked-up or driven shooting and at the shoot lunch. It doesn’t shout out, just blends into the background. Best of all because of its fabric it’s fairly robust and if it lives in the pocket of a shooting jacket for when it’s needed, it probably won’t complain too much.
