Whether it’s your son, daughter, grandchild, niece, nephew, or friend, the kid on your Holiday 2013 shopping list is sure to enjoy a lifetime filled with treasures of all kinds when you give them the gift of a metal detector. Most Holiday gifts for children are just treasures in and of themselves and that’s it. But that’s not all they get when you give them a metal detector.
What kids of things can they find?
Metal detectors will lead children to a wide range of different treasures depending on where they’re used; some of which are quite valuable! From money new and old, to jewelry, to antique toys, to gold nuggets, and even meteorites from outer space your child will actually be able to find treasures like these for many many, years when you give them a metal detector for the 2013 Holidays.
A lifetime of learning opportunities!
Not only that, when you give them a metal detector you’ll also give them the opportunity to further their education; which is always a treasure. Kids will get a chance to study subjects like geology, history, and electronics when they go metal detecting and, best of all, since they’re learning while they’re also having fun, they’re more apt to retain what they learn, as well as pursue it further in the future.
Treasures for Mom and Dad too
If you are looking to join the kids in the fun, you will want to pick out a metal detector designed for adults. Some of the leading metal detector brands for adults include Bounty Hunter, Garrett, Tesoro and XP Metal Detectors. While the brand feature the latest in technology, they start at under $200 and can fetch prices well over one thousand dollars. Take your time to research your equipment first before plunking down your money. In addition to the metal detector, you will want to get the right accessories. According to Daniel Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com you will want a carry bag, headphones like the Audiophone II, a quality digger like the Lesche Digging tool or a sand scoop for the beach along and a pinpointer like the Garrett Pro-pointer.
