Christmas Gifts for those who love Camping! Last minute gift ideas


Camping Gift Ideas - Perfect for last minute gifts






With Christmas just around the corner, some of you might be wondering what to get someone who loves the outdoors? 

Time is precious, and online shopping is definitely the way to go and beat the queues, the carparking dramas and all those people.

To make life a bit easier for you, we collated some of our fave items from our affiliate, Wild Earth which should appeal to anyone who goes camping! 

And quite a few of these, we think can do double-duty:    home and away.

Solar Powered Candle Lantern


We love the Luci lantern, and we have reviewed it here.     But this is the Luci Candle Lantern, for that softer (and yes, romantic) glow. 

Why we like it?     Solar powered, safer than a candle, and perfect for home use

Stocking Stuffer



Looking for something small and useful to go in a stocking?  Then the Light My Fire Firesteel is incredibly handy.      This is for any camper, whether you be a lightweight hiking sort of camper, or full luxuries-a-must camper.    Don't rely on matches, when this works.   And you look quite rugged as well.



Why we like it?    It's practical, small and reliable.

Light My Fire Grandpa's Fire Fork



Cook sausages and marshmallows and more when you attach your Light My Fire Grandpa's Fork to any stick.   And voila!   Cooking over a campfire just got a little less tricky.

You can read about what foods you can cook over a campfire using a stick to give you some inspiration.


Why we like it?     Because sometimes food does fall off the stick because the end of the stick just wasn't designed to hold a sausage!

GSI Commuter Coffee Java Press


For the coffee lover in your life.    You don't need to be camping to have a desire for caffeine, and this gives you the French Press taste, without the plunger mess. 


Why we like it?    Caffeine hit, anytime, anywhere.  Not just camping.

Klymit Inertia O Zone


If you have someone needing ultralight gear, and wanting them to sleep well on their treks, this bizarre looking sleeping mat with built-in pillow, could be the gift that you get a lot of thanks for.
Put inside or outside of your sleeping bag.


Why we like it?     Because it's so cool looking, and a built in pillow means one less thing we have to remember.

Collapsible Gear


For the space saving campers, get ready to collapse lots of items.


Why we like these items?    Space is always an issue for us.   Anything that saves us a bit of room is always appreciated and  needed.

Don't let your phone run out of power, anywhere, anytime.     Give the gift that allows your loved one to stay connected.


Why we like it?    Small, light and waterproof.    Perfect for city use as well, so you can pop one in your handbag or pocket for day's of heavy use of your phone.

Headlamps


Headlamps are a must for camping  (you can read on how to choose a headlamp here).    So if you don't have one on your list of gear, then check out the range (and prices vary greatly).



Why we like it?   We think headlamps are mandatory part of camping.    Hands free cooking, hiking, and around camp.  What's not to love?   Huge range on offer as well.

Thermarest Stretcher Cot Bug Shelter



Sleep under the stars, but comfortably on a Thermarest cot, with a bug shelter above you.      Fine weather camping only.       FYI:  Shelter only, cot sold separately.


Why we like it:     Comfort and style in the outdoors.   For the glampers not the hard core campers!

Swift Fold Hammock



Got room in your car to experience hammock camping without the need for trees?  Or for your backyard (perfect for days when you want to laze at home)?     Try a fold up hammock stand.


Why we like it?    Hammock in the backyard is a great way to spend your days off this summer.
