For us, the appeal of camping lies in its ability to slow down our busy lives so we can make meaningful memories around the campfire with the people who mean the most to us.
It gives us a chance to unplug and unwind, allowing us to do the least with people that matter the most.
The holiday season is just around the corner, and finding the perfect gift for the camping enthusiasts in our lives can be a bit of a challenge
We’ve put together a list of five fantastic gift options that any camper would be thrilled to receive. From practical gear to gadgets that will make their next outdoor adventure even more enjoyable.
Let’s dive in.
FreeFly Women’s Cloudshield Rain Jacket
If you’re looking for a great gift for your wife or daughter who loves the outdoors, consider getting her a rain coat that’s made to last.
The Freefly Cloudshield Rain Jacket is an essential piece of outerwear for active women looking to enjoy outdoor adventures regardless of the weather. This jacket uses Freefly’s proprietary Cloudshield waterproof technology which allows full waterproof protection.
And even though it’s fully waterproof, it’s still highly breathable so rain can’t penetrate the fabric.
This makes the Cloudshield jacket perfect for a wide range of activities from hiking and backpacking to cycling, climbing, and more.
In addition to complete water protection, the Cloudshield Rain Jacket also features thoughtful details to enhance comfort and functionality.
The relaxed fit provides freedom of movement, while adjustable toggles at the hem and cuffs allow for a customized seal against the elements. Handy zippered pockets and a zip-off hood keep essentials secure and protected from the rain.
Garmin inReach Mini
No matter how many times you’ve gone camping or hiking, things can and will go wrong. Having peace of mind when exploring remote areas is priceless, and that’s where the Garmin inReach Mini comes in.
The inReach Mini allows campers to send and receive text messages from anywhere, even without cell service. They can let family and friends know their location and that everything is okay with the touch of a button. Campers can also use the SOS function to trigger an emergency response if they ever need help.
You’re probably asking yourself that your smartphone has an SOS option already. However, the inReach Mini provides peace of mind through reliable satellite communication where cell service doesn’t exist.
Whether you’re backpacking deep in the wilderness or mountain biking in remote terrain, it can potentially save lives in an emergency when every minute counts.
Overland Collapsible Fire Pit w/Carry Bag
For all you dispersed campers, if you’re looking for a way to have a wood-burning fire pit at base camp, a collapsible fire pit is the ticket.
Crafted from high-temp powder coated materials, this durable fire pit is built to withstand temperatures up to 1100 degrees Fahrenheit, the collapsible fire pit from RoughCountry makes a great gift to take your outdoor camping trips to the next level.
This unique interlocking fire pit can be assembled in seconds and travels flat, saving you tons during transportation.
Remember to check your area if you’re allowed to have firepits, as well as necessary permits.
Silky Gomboy Folding Hand Saw
Having a good portable saw when camping is great way to cut down tree branches for clearance and/or fires. One of the best folding hand saws, in my opinion, is the Silky Gomboy Curve Folding Saw.
The Silky Gomboy Curve Folding Saw is a high-quality, portable saw ideal for camping trips and outdoor excursions. Despite its compact size, this saw is extremely effective thanks to its sharp, flexible blade.
Made of hardened steel with serrations on both sides, the blade effortlessly cuts through branches up to 4 inches thick. Its curved design allows you to saw in tight spaces and at odd angles. The non-slip rubber handle provides excellent control and comfort during extended use.
Its compact size makes it a must-have cutting tool for any overnight backpacking or car camping trip. Lightweight and powerful, makes the perfect gift for the camper in your life.
Winter camping can be fun but very very cold, especially when you’re sleeping in tents with the whole family. The portable Buddy Heater is a way to stay warm during camping trips, fishing expeditions, and even in emergency situations at home.
It’s lightweight and compact design maeks it easy for you to carry around and set up wherever you need. With an output range of 4,000 to 9,000 BTU per hour, it can effectively heat spaces up to 225 square feet.
And if you’re concerned about safety having a propane heater inside your tent, the built-in safety features like the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) and accidental tip-over safety shut-off ensure that you can use the device with confidence and peace of mind.
We’ve used the Buddy Heater on multiple camping trips up in Big Bear. A 5 gallon propane tank should last you from 2-3 nights.
