Here are our choices for the Best Gifts For Campers
How clever is this Collapsible Bucket? Save space when packing up. This 3 gallon, under 10 oz, one would be my choice! So multi-fuctional – haul water, wash dishes, even use for carrying your fish home! When we fly and camp this would be perfect to pack in our duffel. A set of these would make super cool camping gifts.
I received a Cookware Set
like this as a gift and absolutely love having everything in one place when we camp. This is one of my favorite gifts for camping lovers! For most campers our utensils are a hodge-podge of household leftovers. Having first class supplies is quite the luxury.
I particularly like this one because it also includes the cutting board, and of course a wine opener! And those scissors have dozens of uses in any campsite.
We’ve been looking for the perfect pillow
when camping. We often resort to rolling up a fleece jacket in a pillow case. So this one is everything you could want. Your camper will really appreciate a good night’s sleep using this pillow.
Inflated, it’s large enough to provide comfort and support. Folded up in it’s bag it is smaller than a can of soda. You’ll find this a camping item to wrap up as a gift.
If your camper is like us, they pretty much “unplug” when camping. Except.. there are so many other things you need on your phone. Of course it’s our camera! Plus I always have a book or two loaded, I save all my reservations on it, need directions, do a little journaling and the list never ends. To top it off, we usually camp where there is no electricity. And we can go days without starting our car. So a dead cell phone can be a challenge to recharge. Enter this simple Nekteck Solar Charger.
This unique camping gift will fill the gap.
Ugh! Mosquitoes can ruin a camping trip. It drives me crazy that those pesky bugs don’t bother Brad, but they eat me alive. I tell him it’s because I’m so sweet! When the mosquitoes come out I have to go in or be miserable.
Talk about gifts campers will love. A gift of this Thermacell Mosquito Repeller is a gift that keeps giving. It covers a huge area of 15′ and runs for 12 hours on one cell. So your camping friends will have a relaxing evening without all the swatting or fear of mosquitoes.
Shhh…. Don’t tell anyone. But we have been known cheat a little when we camp. Don’t misunderstand, Brad and I are both great at starting a fire the boy scout way. But why go to all the trouble if you can use a simple fire starter like these 100% Natural Fire Starters.
A fire starter is especially appreciated if camp has been wet for a few days. These lightweight, chemical free cubes are the perfect gift for any camper who loves their campfire!
Do you hate flies in your food? When our daughter gave me a set of Pop Up Food Covers
I had doubts. It seemed a little odd. But now I truly hooked on these little food tents.
They are a staple in my beach bag, my camping pack and for any potluck. The food cover just pops up like an umbrella and then folds back up for storage. No more flies in your food.
I’m confessing right now that I do not do scary stories. But our family loves them. If your family loves a good campfire ghost story, tuck Jim Harold’s Campfire Ghost Stories
into your camp kit. Here are 60 stories to entertain!
Don’t forget to pack the s’mores too! Check out this cute Hershey’s S’mores Caddy that you could add for fun camping stuff.
Oh, I so want these! I don’t usually suggest stuff we or a friend hasn’t tried, but these are so cool and on my wish lists that I wanted to share. Although probably not practical for a long trip where you are moving every night, think how fun they would be to decorate your campsite when heading out for a family weekend in your local state park.
This is a string of 12 Brightech LED Solar Lights that recharge with about 4 hours of sunlight. They offer a crazy 3 year guarantee. This is one of the best gifts for rv campers.
Campers are so guilty of just dumping a bunch of band-aids and miscellaneous health stuff into a baggie and calling it a first aid kit. Think how much they’d appreciate being certain they had everything they could need for an emergency in this organized First Aid Kit
This kit is one of the most practical gifts for any camper.
First I have to tell you that this company’s mission to provide nutrition packages to malnourished children touches my heart. When you purchase This Bar Saves Lives
bars you are supporting this beautiful program. To top it off, these are the perfect quick snack bars: great tasting, gluten and dairy free, and full of nutrition to give you plenty of energy when you are on the go. I love a gift that keeps giving!
Add it a few other treats and some coffee to create a camping gift basket that everyone will love.
