Holiday Gift Ideas

The holiday season is here, and now is a great time to think about getting your cadets and counselors some Cadet-branded gifts. If you’re looking for ways to show your appreciation, reward outstanding performance, or just need ideas for gifts, consider some of the following options.


Cadets-branded t-shirts and caps make great gifts while promoting Cadets. There are lots of colors and design options, all available in our online stores.

Our other t-shirt style sports the Cadet cross logo on the front, with “CADETS Living for Jesus” text on the back. Available in sport gray.

Camouflage Caps – United States | Canada

For the outdoorsman, we’ve got a camouflage baseball cap with a blaze orange Cadets logo.

Every Day Carry (EDC) and Similar 

Here are some ideas for handy tool-type gifts that recipients can carry with them.

Multi-Tool – United States | Canada

This multi-tool combines several tools into one handheld package. Includes spring-action needle nose and regular pliers, saw blade, Phillips and regular screwdrivers, reamer, and more. The Cadets logo is laser-engraved on the handle and appears silver. It comes with a nylon belt pouch.

Collapsible Camp CupUnited States | Canada

This collapsible camp cup is made of BPA-free silicone and comes with a snap-on lid. The lid comes with a handy carrying loop, and the cup comes with a tab for easy carabiner attachment.

Tumbler – United States | Canada

This insulated tumbler will keep your hot liquids hot and your cold liquids cold, with a tightly-sealed lid and sliding tab closure. The prominently-placed logo lets everyone know you’re a fan of Cadets.

Stylus Pen – United States | Canada

This pen has a cool bonus feature – a built-in stylus for your electronic screens. Write on paper with the pen, or on-screen with the stylus end. Either way, you’ll be able to promote Cadets with this stylish writing implement.

Pocket Knife – United States | Canada

Few things are as useful as a good pocket knife, and we have one we think you’ll really like. This multi-function knife includes a corkscrew, bottle opener, can opener, screwdrivers, saw, scissors, reamer, and more.

Backpack and Drawstring Bag

These backpacks and drawstring bags will hold and carry your stuff while promoting Cadets.

Cadet Backpack – United States | Canada

This black and royal blue poly-vinyl backpack is loaded with great features. The oversized outside pocket includes a hidden pocket, cord opening, and accessory pockets. The Cadets logo is screen printed in white. Approximate size 16½” × 12” × 7” [42 × 30 × 18 cm].

Cadet Drawstring Bag – United States | Canada

This drawstring bag is handy for holding lots of different stuff securely and can be worn like a backpack. The Cadets logo is screen printed on it, too!


Try one of our many flashlight options!

Standard Flashlight – United States | Canada

Our “standard” flashlight is available in highly visible yellow, with the Cadet shield emblem and motto included.

LED Keyring Flashlight – United States | Canada

We also have a smaller (but still bright) LED-powered flashlight suitable for clipping onto your keyring.

Cap Visor Light – United States | Canada

If hands-free lighting is what you need, try our cap visor light – it clips onto any baseball cap brim to point your light where you’re looking.

For the Readers 

Award/Mileage Logbooks – United States | Canada

Help your Cadets track their progress toward special awards and accomplishments. Logs are available for running, hiking, cycling, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and backpacking, as well as Bible study and verse memorization.

Theme Bookmark – United States | Canada

For the readers in your cadre, we recommend the theme bookmark. With the theme, logo, and verse on one side and the Cadet landmarks on the other side, it’s perfect for keeping your place in your book while keeping the theme in mind.
