Best Gifts for Campers

If you have a friend or family member that loves to camp, there are a lot of awesome gifts on the market. Even if they have everything they need, the perfect gift can go a long way. Let’s look at some of the fantastic products on the market that you can give your outdoorsy recipient!

Camping Coffee

If you know they love coffee, I have great news for you. The camping coffee market has exploded with innovative ways to ensure campers get a great cup of Joe to start their day right. From high-quality instant coffee (that sounds impossible, but I assure you it’s not) to disposable tea bags full of coffee grounds and even pour-over options, you can’t go wrong with a well-reviewed shot of caffeine. Even better, you can add a thermal coffee cup to the gift and brighten their day!

Travel Pillows

Every camper knows that a good night’s sleep is essential and that pillows are hard to lug around. Thankfully, many options on the market are lightweight, compact, and affordable. Getting your loved one a camping pillow, even if they already have one, is a great choice. Camping gear gets dirty and used hard over the years, so they’ll love a new camping pillow! Be sure to read reviews before you purchase. An eco-friendly option will be appreciated over one that harms the environment during production.

Solar Lanterns

Every camper needs a good source of lighting, and if they’ve been camping for years, they are probably still using propane or batteries. Solar lanterns have come a long way, and your camping friend will appreciate a lantern that they can charge on the go. Of course, the market is flooded, so check the different charge times and battery retention. A high-quality lantern should fit well in your budget, even with all the bells and whistles.

Solar Chargers

Speaking of solar, the new chargers on the market make a great gift! There are compact options that can fold out over a backpack and charge their phone or any other device while they hike during the day. Solar chargers used to be expensive, but you can buy a quality portable charger for under $100. Giving the gift of endless energy is never a bad idea. Even if they already have one, a second one will double their charging capabilities! Plus, these get lighter and more user-friendly each year, so an upgrade is sure to be appreciated.

Regardless of which gift you choose to give, remember that the holidays are all about spending time with friends and family. If you’re interested in camping, too, you can always invite them out for a weekend under the stars! Who knows, maybe you’ll even get to see your gift in action!
