What can archers do with $25? A whole lot, especially if they love watching archery but haven’t tried it yet. That’s because $25 – or a sum very close to it – can almost always buy them a beginner lesson at an archery store. In that first lesson, they’ll learn safety and awesome basic archery skills that steer them toward a lifetime of bow-and-arrow fun.

Fun With Accessories

Necklace or armguards? Definitely armguards – but extra stylish on model and archer Mix Haxholm.

Archers taking beginner lessons or first-time programs like Explore Archery need an armguard and a finger tab, and that’s where Santa comes in. An armguard protects the archer’s inner arm from the bowstring, while giving the string a smooth surface to travel along. A finger tab does the same thing for the hand holding the bowstring, allowing the string to release easily from the fingertips. Armguards and finger tabs come in many colors, costs and materials.

Instead of a traditional Christmas stocking, how about filling a quiver with stocking stuffers? Quivers – which hold arrows and important accessories – come in tons of styles, suitable for archers who shoot compounds, recurves or traditional bows. Quivers are made of leather, cloth and synthetic materials, and in countless color options from the massively modern to the thoroughly throwback. Bonus: You’ll find a quiver for nearly every budget.

It’s the Little Things

If your archery fan already has a bow and arrows, a few accessories might come in handy. Consider picking up an arrow puller and arrow lubricant, which help remove arrows safely from targets; and an Allen wrench set for quickly adjusting gear. Or how about a new or backup bowstring in their favorite color combo, or a new sight aperture – the part they look through to aim. Put these into a stocking, and your archer will have a perfect toolkit for upcoming classes or leagues!
