Unusual Camping Gifts

Expensive Camping Gifts

Here are our top recommendations for more expensive gifts. You will surely find something for that person who seems to have it all.

Five Expensive Camping Gifts Suggestions

Trailer Hitch Hammock Chairs – These are so comfortable and fun to sit in. They can be used at tailgates, picnics, or other outside gatherings.

Big Berkey Water Filter – A Berkey is a water purification system that removes bacteria and viruses. We are unsure of what is in the water at the various campgrounds we visit, so we are grateful to have one.

Screen Room – Pop-up screen rooms are easy to set up and help keep bugs out. Get one with sides, and it doubles as a tent for kids or guests.

SylvanSport Camping Kitchen System – We recently got one of these large Dine-O-Max outdoor kitchens. It makes a big difference because our RV has a tiny kitchen.

Inflatable Kayak for Two – No way to carry a regular kayak on your RV? This blow-up kayak stows in a large bag for easy transport.

Gifts for Campers

These practical gifts are in the moderate range.

Mid Price Gifts Suggestions for Campers

Portable Ice Maker – A must-have for anyone who likes to have ice on hand.

Camp Stove/Grill Combo – Similar to the classic Coleman stove, there is one burner and an integrated grill. Make coffee and cook breakfast all together in one place.

Campfire Cooking Stand – These are super handy for cooking over a campfire. The steel stand is strong enough to hold a Dutch oven over the fire.

Electric Cooler – Power with an adapter in the car or a regular plug at the camper. Ours has served us well over the years.

Affordable Camping Gear

These helpful gift ideas are more reasonably priced.

Affordable Camping Gifts

Shock Absorber Rocking Chair – This is the smoothest rocking chair you will ever sit in! Works well on uneven ground. We have one, and as soon as someone gets up from it, someone else sits down in it.

Log Grabber – This is by far our FAVORITE campfire tool. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who likes to play with fire.

CampMaid – This is a versatile stand to use with your Dutch oven. It even turns the oven lid into a griddle.

Adjustable Step – We have had this step for years and used it with a pop-up and our motorhome.

Inexpensive Gift Ideas for Campers

Whether you stuff these into a bag or stocking, the recipient will love them.

Camping Stocking Stuffers

Hacky Pack – This adventure pack doubles as a hacky sack.

Fire Rainbow Crystals – Fun for campfires or in the fireplace at home.

RV States Visited Sticker Map – We love ours!

Funny Camping Shirts – We have several of these and always get asked where we got them.

Projector Screen – Enjoy a movie out at the campground. This one attaches easily to a canopy.

Female Urination Device – Super handy for hiking! Read all about it in my How to Pee Like a Guy post.

That breakfast station is all kinds of cool! And I also really like the pop up side table with the checkerboard design. How fun!
