It’s that time of year, and meaning it’s time to decide what military surplus you want want for Christmas. We’ve got a whole list of stuff you can buy for your loved ones (or for yourself!) to show how much you care, and show support for our troops too. Let’s get started!
Military Uniform - This one never gets old. Military uniforms are not only stylish, they’re also a Christmas gift that will last for years to come! Any piece of a military uniform can be used for hunting, camping, hiking, or just everyday use. Amazon has some great deals, as well as a large selection of styles. The best part about getting them from Amazon is that you can buy separate pieces of the uniform. Check out their selection.
AR-15 – You may not think of this as a regular Christmas gift, but I know it’s first on the list for some of our men readers. To determine the exact AR-15 rifle you want this year, check out the AR-15 builder. It lets you customize your gun with all the extra gear to make it just right. Just make sure you’re on the “nice” list before you order this military surplus item.
Military Movie - One of the best Christmas gifts you can get for any year is a good military movie. There were plenty released in theaters to choose from this year, but we’ll mention a couple for you to consider.
We saw Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) lead his team into battle against an unknown enemy-invasion in Battle: Los Angeles. If you like action and appreciate the musical scoring of rising star composer Brian Tyler, then you’ll enjoy this sci-fi flick.
Michael Bay (Pearl Harbor, Armageddon) wowed us once again with unprecedented special effects in his final (alleged) chapter to the Transformers saga. Sam Witwicky teams up with the autonomous robotic organisms (Autobots) from Cybertron to do battle against the evil Decepticons in Dark of the Moon. This third episode in a span of four years does not disappoint hard-core Transformers fans, and gives the military’s involvement in the film makes us here at Best Military Surplus even more to like.
Perhaps the most military-minded movie of the year featured America’s greatest hero — The First Avenger. Chris Evans (Fantastic Four), stars as the unfortunate Steve Rogers who just wants to make a difference for his World War II-era country. When he gets the chance to be part of an experiment to combat the plans of the Nazis, Rogers rises to the occasion and becomes Captain America.
Better than of these gifts is the one you can give to all soldiers in our military — thank them. They sacrifice their lives to serve us and protect us so we can enjoy Christmas with family and friends, so don’t forget them this Christmas season.
