I’m pretty sure we all thought January would never end, but it’s finally February and Valentine’s Day is almost here …. again.
Wondering what to get for your self-defending sweetheart? Look no further!
Here are ten great gift ideas for your special Valentine!
Save Their Hand Strength For Backrubs

Make Date Night Fun Again
Looking to extend Valentine’s Day past February 14th? Pick up a few of Action Targets‘ Game Series paper targets and make it even funner!

Want to try something different? Triumph Systems‘ Pop Packs make for great fun! They come in a variety of shapes and colors and are perfect for practicing ‘call-out’ drills.
Protect Them When They’re On-The-Go
Law-abiding citizens know you can’t always take your gun with you. If your loved one is out and about and needs to go into a gun-free zone, make sure they’re not making it easy for criminals to get their hands on their firearm.
The Hornady RAPiD Vehicle Safe is a great option for every gun owner and our Pac Mat Holster fits snugly inside. Plus, it’s an affordable option of securing your firearm – MidSouth Shooters has them on sale for $157.99.
Getaway? Vacation? Mini staycation? Forget all that, give your special someone the gift of knowledge with a traincation! When you give them the gift of firearms training from a reputable training facility such as Gunsite Academy or FPF Training, not only do they enjoy a little time away, but they’re also bolstering their skillset.
That’s what we call a real WIN/WIN!
…and Some New Gear To Pack!
Before you see them off, make sure they’ve got the proper gear! 511 Tactical has so many tactical apparel options for men and women that even the most discerning shooters are guaranteed to find quality, fashionable choices for the range.
Besides, can you really ever have enough range clothes and gear?!
…a Brand New Gun!!
I mean, who wouldn’t want a new handgun for Valentine’s Day?! With so many new guns to choose from like the Sig P365 Springfield Hellcat, and the Mossberg MC2c, as well as the timeless M&P Shield, there’s no shortage of options to choose from.
That being said, unless they know what fits their grip, giving them a gift card to a range or gun store where they can test the firearms for themselves before they buy them is the best way to ensure the firearm fits them and their method of carrying.
WRAP IT UP: Include a few boxes of self-defense and practice ammo with that gift certificate to make sure they have something to open up and shoot downrange!
How about some bling for your gunny guy or gal’s rail?
With the new TLR-8, Streamlight shows they came to play. Available in red and green lasers and side and rear switch options, this mighty light throws 500 lumens in a 140 m beam, runs 1.5 hours using light only or light/laser combo or 18 hours using laser only. Streamlight has weapons-mountable lights and lasers for every price point.
Lights and lasers are more popular now than ever! Just remember to practice with and without them so you don’t become dependent on them to make the shot when it counts.
Peace of Mind
If you’ve ever sat through a good concealed carry course or even thought of needing to pull your gun for self-defense or to protect your family, you’ve allowed your mind to go where we hope we never have to. But if you did need to defend yourself or your loved ones, do it with the peace of mind that someone will have your back.
A membership to USCCA is a great gift idea for your special someone on for holiday or occasion. There’s no substitute for the peace of mind of knowing their Critical Response Team and up to $2,250,000 in Self-Defense SHIELD Protection are just one call away. Add in their industry-leading education, first-class training, monthly informational magazine, and exclusive member perks and you’ve got yourself an amazing gift for any concealed carrier!
The Perfect Holster to Pull it All Together
Of course, the number one gunny gift you can give your special someone this Valentine’s Day is a gift certificate for the perfect holster from CrossBreed!
Whether they’re partial to our best-selling SuperTuck or eager to try out our new Hybrid ST2 or MT2 holsters, need a gun belt or just want a new t-shirt, the gift of CrossBreed is guaranteed to make them smile. Not only on February 14th but each and every day they wear it!
And really, that’s the point of gift-giving, isn’t it?
