If you are one of the many shoppers who dare to shop on Black Friday, then you might want to do a little shopping at the local gas station. Yep, the local gas station. You might be surprised that there are a lot of possible Christmas gifts that you can pick up at a gas station.

Slim Jim and a Six Pack of Beer

Slim Jims are a must for my families Christmas Stocking! Hey, this is East Texas, baby! You can find Slim Jims everywhere, but none are as good as those you’ll find at a gas station. What could be better then the artificial smoky flavor of a Slim Jim? A Slim Jim with a cold beer, that’s what!

Scratch Offs and a Six Pack of Beer

Who doesn’t like to scratch off a possible winning lottery ticket? This could be a great gift for you too. Think about it. Cousin Earl could win thousands and share it with you! Well, you can dream can’t you?

Zippo Lighter and a Six Pack of Beer

Zippo lighters come in many cool designs, and are available at most gas stations. Don’t worry, even if cousin Earl is not a smoker this gift will be a favorite of his! This gift is practical – handy for lighting campfires, BBQ pits, candles and fireplaces. Of course, don’t use the Zippo while drinking the beer, Earl!

 

 

 

Pork Rinds

Pork Rinds and a Six pack of beer

Yum! Pork Rinds and beer – are you kiddin’? Everybody in “the know” knows this is the breakfast of champions! Most gas stations typically carry a wide variety of pork rinds. If the gas station has it, buy a bottle of Tabasco or hot sauce to make the gift complete. Keep in mind it’s the thought that counts.

Styrofoam Cooler and A Six Pack Of Beer

This is a gift that cousin Earl will use again and again. Ice down some beer and food and head out to the lake, tailgating, outdoor parties and picnics. The styrofoam cooler has many other uses, too. Say Cousin Earl finds himself without a life jacket – he’s got the cooler. What if he catches his limit in fish? He’s got the cooler! I think this is actually a very thoughtful gift.

Just a few suggestions – but seriouslym if you head out into the jungle that is “Black Friday,”  I’ll be thinking of you while I’m in my recliner relaxing. Happy shopping guys!
