Writing to Santa is never simple. We seem to find new products every other day, and keep rewriting that “Dear Santa” letter. It’s time to end all that indecision. Here are some archery items everyone should ask Santa for this year.
1. Arrow Counter
Every archer shoots arrows. Each shot arrow is one more tick mark in the books, and a job well-done in practice. So, why don’t you have a counter? This little beauty keeps track of every arrow you shoot each day. Rather than making marks like a prisoner awaiting his release, use this fun, lightweight device to easily tally your shots, and track your progress.
2. Target Bales
Having your own bale (or target) is the crowning jewel of every archer’s wish list. A backyard target bale means you don’t have to drive two hours to practice. Santa knows it’s a wise gift because bales last two to 10 years. When you replace it depends on how accurate you are at first, and how many arrows you shoot into the same place repeatedly.
3. Personalized Quiver
Personalized quivers are always fun gifts. Leather, nylon, back quiver, hip quiver or field quiver – it’s all about personal preference. Some companies make personalized quivers in unique color combos. And others incorporate custom patterns, like the night sky or Batman insignia. Talk to your local archery store for recommendations.
4. Lessons at a Pro Shop
Many people just want a bow for Christmas, but will you still be shooting come summer? Make archery your lifetime sport. It’s also about bettering one’s self. Can you hit that bull’s-eye just one more time? To boost your game another step, why not take a lesson or two from a pro? Archery instructors can teach you shooting steps you might not have considered. This helps you grow in the sport and learn from those with deep knowledge of its secrets and techniques.

5. Archery Shoes
Do you have a friend or acquaintance who’s artsy? You know, the one who gets creative with a bland pair of Toms or Vans? Honor their talent by paying them to make you a pair of awesome archery-inspired shoes. You have many options for themed shoes, especially archery shoes. They could be inspired by archery heroes from Disney, DC Comics, Marvel comics or just plain ol’ backwoods archery characters. When you decide, share your new kicks with us! We want to see them, too!
Archery style doesn’t stop with shoes. It can also inspire shirts and hats for every occasion. Release Your Wild has a ton of fun, cool designs that subtly tell friends of your new-found hobby.
7. Gift Cards
We all wish our grandparents would stop sending those ugly sweaters or puzzles we never finish. Suggest gift cards to a local archery store instead. Tell them it’s for archery and not for videogames from Best Buy. They’ll happily oblige because they’re helping you get outdoors for fun and physical activity.
So, what are you waiting for? Ask Santa to point you in the right direction. Check out an archery store near you to get the gifts that keep on giving!
