Buying gifts for people who love camping can be really fun, especially if you yourself are into camping. Camping is one of the most wholesome, fun, affordable and bonding experiences a family can have.
My family and I are regular campers. We love the outdoors, camping and the freedom to just be. We especially try to find campsites that are dog friendly as we have a Border Collie named Ben and we hate to leave him at a kennel.
I absolutely adore buying gifts for people who love camping because there are so many different options available. There are small camping accessories which can make a great gift especially if you’re on a tight budget, but you still want to buy something useful.
Then there are the bigger items like sleeping bags, tents, camping stretchers and a few others which can really help your friends to add to their list of camping needs. Certainly perfect as a wedding or anniversary gift.

Here I have listed what I felt are some of the very best gifts for campers for camping. Some are fun, some are essential must haves and others I just love because they make my life a little easier while out in the ‘wild’ so to speak.
Best Rated Camping Tents
A tent is the main item you will need when you go camping. The size depends on your needs. Are you a couple or a big family. Buy depending on your needs. If you love camping and are going to be camping for many years to come then buying a bigger tent now might be the better option. It will save you money in the long run rather than buying a small tent and having to purchase another one a year or so down the line. Here are a few options of the best rated camping tents:
Coleman 8-Person Red Canyon Tent,204
This is one of the most popular tents around for big families and for good reason. It can accommodate a family of eight and has three room dividers so the kids get to have their own room which they can play in and mess up just as much as at home and all you have to do is close the zip and you won’t see a thing. What more can you ask from best rated camping tents?
While tent setup is very easy with its shock-corded poles, the cool-air port and Variflo adjustable venting system allows you to adjust airflow so it never feels stuffy inside.
The Coleman’s exclusive Weathertec System is guaranteed to keep you dry from unexpected wet weather which hopefully you won’t have too much of while on holiday, but it’s good to know you’re covered should you be caught in an unexpected shower.

When it comes to camping furniture ideas there are many to choose from, but one of the main ones you need to consider is a comfortable cot or mattress to sleep on.
One of the most affordable lightweight camping pads is the Klymit Static. It has a V-chamber design to limit air movement and heat loss. It has received numerous positive reviews and as far as camping furniture ideas is concerned, this camping pad is right there at the top with the best of them.

Although it doesn’t come with an air pump, it is not necessary because it is really easy to blow up. All it requires is about 10 – 15 deep breaths and you’re all done ready for a comfortable nights’ sleep. The Klymit Static V Lightweight Sleeping Pad comes highly recommended.
Best Outdoor Camping Chairs for Comfort
You only want the best outdoor camping chairs when camping outdoors. As you get a little older you want a decent, comfortable chair to sit on when you’re chatting around the campfire with friends and family.
When I was younger I just sat on the grass or what my dad used to call a ‘wetsuit’ box which he used for his wetsuit after surfing, but now I like a little comfort from home even when I’m camping.
