Need some holiday gift ideas for your favorite airsofter, but don’t even know where to begin?
No worries! We’ve got you covered.
We’ve scoured the corners of the mighty Amazon (the mega e-tailer, that is!) to bring you the finest, freshest gift ideas for your airsofter, no matter what your budget is for them.
Let’s get shopping!
Airsoft Gifts under $10
BBs are always in high demand, and are always a welcome present. These .12 gram BBs from Crosman are great quality, and you can pick up 5,000 of them for under ten bucks.
These BBs are great for brand-new airsofters, since they are easy to track and are great for spring-powered guns, which is the starter gun for many of us.
If your airsofter plays outdoors, you’ll want to get them biodegradable BBs. Most outdoor fields only accept this type of BB, since they break down in a few months.
(If you’re interested in the difference between these and the non-biodegradable BBs above, read our in-depth BB guide!)
These BBs are biodegradable, and made from P Life, which is a patented OXO biodegradable compound, that starts to degrade in as few as 45 days under the right conditions. Don’t worry though–these won’t degrade in storage, so you won’t have to worry about wasting your money on useless BBs.
Other details–you get 2,000 BBs that are 6mm in diameter (the standard size) and .20 grams in weight, which works well in many different types of guns.
If your airsofter wants to use a scope, they’re going to need a way to mount it to their gun–and these scope mounting rings are just the thing.
These scope mounts will attach to either Picatinny-style or Weaver-style rails (so they’ll most likely work for your giftee) and fit 1” scopes. They’re machined from lightweight, high-quality aluminum and are secured with easy-to-adjust hex screws.
Reloading is a bore–there’s nothing like spending your time between matches thumbing BBs into a tiny hole to reload your magazine. Speed loaders, like this one, make the job way faster, which is always appreciated.
This reloader lets you easily pour in BBs, and then uses a plunger to insert them into you magazine a few at a time. Best of all–it’s inexpensive, so it’s a great solution for airsofters on the go who want to tuck one in every gear bag or tactical vest.
In between matches, let your airsofter get a little target practice with these automatically resetting practice targets. Each target springs back into place after a hit, so they don’t need reset, and this system is battery-free.
The mesh frame around the targets makes clean-up easy, since BBs won’t go every which way, so it also helps players capture and reuse BBs–and means that you won’t be vacuuming them up.
There is no such thing as too many shemaghs–no seriously, I own six of them. These scarves are handy for protecting your face during matches, adding a bit of tactical style to your winter wear, keeping the sun off of you, and so much more.
And with multiple colors to choose from, you can find one that fits your player’s style. We also like that these are stitch-patterned like the real deal, and not a cheaply printed imitation.

If you’re not sure what to get for an airsofter, I always recommend a good pair of shooting gloves. These ones from Mechanix Wear are awesome and are trusted by airsofters, shooters, mechanics, and a bunch of other people who need to protect their hands while also maintaining their dexterity.
These form-fitted gloves are made from TrekDry material, which wicks away sweat and dries quickly. They’re also machine washable and have a seamless, single-layer palm for maximum comfort.
More gloves? More gloves! Why? Because gloves are great.
This pair from FREETOO offer a hard knuckle guard to protect your hands from rogue BBs, and feature a dual-layer, non-skid palm. They’re a little more heavy-duty than the Mechanix Wear gloves above, but they do sacrifice a bit of dexterity.
They also feature breathable vents to keep fingers nice and cool and have a great fit. They come in three tactical colors, too, so you can find the perfect one!
In between game days, help your favorite airsoft player fine-tune their accuracy with these reactive targets.
When a BB hits the surface of this paper target, the fluorescent under-layer is revealed, making it easy to track hits, even at a distance. They also come with stickers, which are intended to cover up previous hits so that these targets can be used more than once.
Considering you can get fifty targets for less than $20 (or 25 for less than $10), these reuasble paper targets are a phenomenal deal that will give your player hours and hours of practice time.
In a fast-paced game, your airsoft player will want to be able to acquire targets quickly and easily, no matter what the environment is. This green laser rifle sight will get them on target faster, even in bright daylight.
The green laser is easy for the eye to pick up and has a great range–meaning this laser is also great for long-distance players. It can be seen nearly a thousand yards out, which also makes it great for strategic planning.

Helmets aren’t a necessary part of airsoft, but they do add some welcome protection from BBs and bumped heads, and also provide a place to mount cameras, lights, and other accessories.
This lightweight helmet is a great starter helmet for those just beginning to build their kit. It features velcro areas for attaching patches, a forward camera mount, side rails, and an adjustable chin strap. It also comes in 5 different colors!

Another great gift to help your airsofter build their kit is a chest rig. Playing airsoft means carrying a ton of gear, and it can be pretty tricky without a tactical vest or a chest rig. Give your airsofter a leg up in their games with this chest rig from Condor.
It comes with space for 6 rifle and 6 pistol magazines, as well as plenty of MOLLE slots for attaching their own pouches. This rig also includes a mesh interior pocket, great for stashing items that you don’t need often.
The padded cross-back harness keeps the rig secure and helps bear the weight of all your gear for all-day comfort. And, once again, there are a few color choices available, so you can customize your look.
Don’t underestimate the importance of great storage–especially if you live with an airsofter and you’re tired of all their gear being strewn around the house.
Plano makes some phenomenal storage solutions that are sturdy, lockable, and will stand up to years of abuse. The 1919 Sportsman trunk is wheeled to make it easy to move, and features molded grooves to help you stack two or more of these trunks together securely.
And, since they now have a place to keep their stinky airsoft gear, you won’t be finding it everywhere. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Reflex sights are another well-loved airsoft accessory. Unlike laser sights, which project a dot, reflex sights use a laser and lenses to overlay a dot on the target in the sight, without it being detectable by anyone but the shooter.
They’re great for stealth, since they don’t create a visible laser beam or dot on the target, and also you won’t have to worry about accidentally shining a laser in someone’s eyes.
The cast aluminum alloy housing is lightweight and protects the glass window. It offers 1,000 hours of battery life–which is more than enough for even hardcore players. They can choose from a red or a green reticle, as well as different reticle designs.

Umarex rifles are some of our favorite budget guns, especially considering they often license their models with real firearms manufacturers so they can create replicas that are darn hard to tell apart from the real deal.
This rifle is an AEG, meaning it uses batteries to power it and is capable of semi- and full-auto firing. It comes with a battery and a charger, as well as flip-up sights.
Throw in some BBs, and your airsofter receives everything they need to start shooting.
For the airsoft sniper or spotter in your life, this waterproof laser rangerfinder is sure to be a hit!
This rangefinder offers 6x magnification and is accurate within a yard of the true range. With advanced pinsensor technology, this device is not only compact, but super accurate. It offers four ranging modes, including continuous scan, so it’s easy to use.
You also get 2 years of VIP customer support, a carrying pouch, a lanyard, a cleaning cloth, and a CR2 battery to power it.
Whether you’re shopping for a birthday gift or a holiday present, you can’t really go wrong with some great airsoft gear. We know it can be a little confusing for the non-airsoft players, but hopefully, we’ve given you some awesome ideas that are sure to make your gift the new favorite.
