Do you know a homesteader? Chances are if you are a homesteader you likely know others. In many ways you could call this group and elite class of people who have decided to bear the burden of ancient hardships, despite the convenience, to live a dynamic life outside the norm.
This dynamic life also affords them a societal freedom most people just cannot understand. They live on their own, they produce their own food, they make their own stuff! So what do you get someone who makes their own stuff?
There are lots of great gifts for homesteaders on the market. You need to start by considering some categories.
Gifts for the Homestead
It takes a lot to run a homestead, so you might want to consider the needs of those on the homestead. Buying things like new tools and materials can be as much a gift as anything else. Ball jars, yarn, fencing, might sound like weird gifts but they are gold to the homesteader.
Gifts for Fun
Work hard; play hard: should be the mantra for the homesteader. Unfortunately, its often work hard; sleep. Keeping that in mind, maybe there is a little something that can take the edge off of homesteading. Maybe you have a gift that can be just fun as it can be homestead practical.
Gifts to Get Away
There is no heaven on earth. No matter how much you love the homestead, you need a break. How could you provide that break for the homesteader in your life? For those without hot running water on the homestead, something like a spa day could really make a difference.
You can add a lot to the homesteaders life if you think about it and get a gift that offers them something outside of the traditional. We are dealing with anything but traditional people, in homesteaders.
