Best camping gear

Part of the fun of camping is having the right gear and here is some of the best camping gear that you can buy as a gift for your camping chums.

My husband remembers his childhood camping trips and all the little things his family kept in the attic ready for packing in the car before they took off for the annual camping holidays – he remembers how those things made camping that much more fun and interesting.

There are so many things on the market these days – and some of them are quite luxurious. So if you know someone who is into camping and you want to buy them a present they will love, here are my suggestions.

What makes me such an expert? I’ve been camping for more years than I care to remember and I’d love each and one of these!

So here’s my list of the best camping gear:

Best Camping Gear - Gifts for campers1. Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System

What a great idea – now you can drink rain water you collect in a bucket, and even out of a puddle –if you dare! A great product that removes pathogen from water including E-coli , cryptosporidium , cholera, giardia etc and sediment.

I love the fact that it is small, just 2 oz in weight it’s so small that it fits into the palm of your hand – it can filter 100,000 gallons of water from any fresh water river, lake or stream. The filter has been tested to the highest levels possible. They give the highest level of filtration on the market. They re perfect for any outdoor activity and for travel – you can use them on a variety of bottles or as a straw, and they are very easy to clean. Any camper, traveler or hiker would love to have one of these for Christmas!

2. Fire Buggz Fishing Pole Campfire Roaster (Red)
These are really fun, especially if you’re camping with children. They are a safe way of roasting food by the fire. And when one side is done you just flick it over and the other side will cook. A great idea.





Great gear for campers

3. Sea to Summit X-Mug and X-Bowl Set with Storage Pouch

These drinking mugs and plates are great space savers. They work because they’re made of silicone and they squash down and fit inside each other. This pack comes with a handy pouch. I love these.

Cooking Camping Gear

4. Flash Personal Cooking System

This stove gets very good reviews in Amazon –  5 star ratings. That’s something you don’t see very often, and does this product justice. It is perfect if you just want to boil some water or re-hydrate dried food. It is lightweight and absolutely perfect for a hiking or trekking trip. It snaps into working mode in seconds and has a built in lighter. It’s not for cooking complex foods – it boils.

Best Camping Torch


5. Bear Grylls’ Intense Torch:

This torch is very light yet robust with a very bright beam.

It has a rubber grip and feels like quality. It will be a welcome improvement to any torch.

These are a great gift for nayone who is into the great outdoors because they dry very quickly and are  light weight and so very soft! Believe me I would live without mine!


Hamoocks for camping - Gifts for campers7. Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock

These are quality hammocks with strong aluminum wiregate carabiners. the material is strong and breathable and better still it all stuff into a sack the size of a grapefruit! It’s durable and versatile and great for the garden as well as your adventure trips!


Oven for camping - Best camping gear


8. Lodge Camp Dutch Oven

This is a large 6oz pot! It’s really amazing becaus eit’s just like having an oven with you. Stick it over the coals and it’ll cook anything you fancy – even lasagne!!

A quality multi tool with all the things you would expect to find such as: various blade sizes, pliers, wire cutters, scissors and more. Affordable – excellent product- best camping gear around!
