Homesteaders are not hard to buy for, and yet complicated all at the same time. People don’t think about buying overalls or beard oil for fellas, and they definitely don’t think a woman wants a membership to a gardening company.
Have no fear — whether you’re a homesteader or love a homesteader, I’m here to help. Here are some of the must haves that homesteaders are always in need of. And some of them may not even realize they need them in their lives just yet. Tried, tested, and true…here are our favorite things!
The boots above are currently his boot of choice in the Summer months and as a “wear out” boot.

WOMEN’S CARHARTT INSULATED OVERALLS (Quilt Lined)
Duh….did you think they were just for men!? I love my Carhartt overalls in the Winter time. They are a must. Otherwise, I’d freeze my tail off! And, yes, I do wear my PJs under them!
FIELD & STREAM APPAREL
I could really wear absolutely anything from Field & Stream; though I’m currently in love with their flannel shirts. They are really spectacular for the homestead, and for wearing out as well.
These are the most comfortable socks you will ever find when it comes to winter wear. I swear by them. The best! They are currently BOGO at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

You wouldn’t think spending this much on a cooler is very efficient. But let me assure you—if you’re out on the water in 100 degree temps, or if you’ve spent a day hunting and need a place to store your kill, this is the cooler to get!
