Do you have a ghost hunter in your life? Want to put a smile on their face for Christmas? Ghost hunting equipment is a sure win! If you’ve been looking around at all the gear and are not sure what products to put under the tree, you’ve stopped by the right place.
Here is some of the best gear for 2016 for the starter ghost hunter right up to the pro paranormal investigator.
For the Beginner
For someone just starting out in ghost hunting there are a few staple tools they will need. This includes an audio recorder, EMF meter, flashlight and maybe even a case to put it in. This is equipment we’ve picked out for starter ghost hunters and young enthusiasts. These items are great for someone interested in getting started with ghost hunting but might not have much (if any) equipment yet. Some of these are staple pieces of equipment every beginner needs at some point.
$ EMF ‘E.L.F.’ Meter – the ELF meter is an inexpensive energy sensor great for the young ones
$$ K2 EMF Meter – the K2 meter is the popular choice for most investigators starting out and is generally used for many years. It’s a staple most investigators have used at some point and may continue to for a long time.
$ EVP Recorder Wrist Band – the EVP wrist recorder is an audio recorder you can wear. Audio recording is a necessity for any investigation. This band is NEW and is great for the starter all the way up to the pro because it’s easy to use and records great quality audio.
$ Motion Sensor – a motion sensor detects motion in the room and alerts the investigator.
$$ Starter Night Vision Camera – this compact video camera is ready for night vision. It’s great as a starter with simple features and setup.
$ BooBuddy Junior EMF Bear – this little bear detects energy changes just like an EMF meter within a bear. There is another model (see below) that does much more.

$ Do-It-Yourself EMF Kit – this NEW little kit allows you to build your own EMF meter into whatever you want with just a little assembly. This gives the pro ghost hunter the ability to build something unique of their own creation. This is great for someone who loves to tinker with electronics.

It does a great job getting into small spaces on investigations. Bottom line – it’s loads of fun and any investigator would love to get the Rover as a present.
