58 unique gifts for campers

Smartwool Smartloft Vest

Smartwool Smartloft Vest

Eco-conscious: Insulation includes recycled/reclaimed wool, sides made from 54% recycled polyester.

Practicality should be a top priority when it comes to buying gifts for campers. But that doesn’t mean sacrificing style and aesthetics. Queue Smartwool’s Smartloft Vest: a perfect blend of function and flair that will keep cool campers cosy on quiet nights around the campfire.

The merino insulation (belnded with some synthetic fibers) offers sweat management and odour control, and the overall feel of the vest is lightweight and flexible, making it very well suited to camp activities as well as chilled time. It’s also streamlined enough to wear under jackets and mid layers for extra warmth, or over a base layer or t-shirt for the in-between times. Plus, the nylon shell repels rain and snow, should you get caught short.

Win over your camping loved one with the gift of warmth (and style!).

Bombas Merino Wool Hiking Calf Sock

Bombas Merino Wool Hiking Calf Sock

Do people really still give socks as gifts? Not a little predictable and boring? Well, only if you give predictable and boring socks! Take these Bombas Merino Wool Hiking Calf Socks, for example. They’re funky and functional, in equal measure. Boasting 63% merino wool content, not only do they provide warmth and comfort, but the merino works its magic as an odour-resistant, moisture wicking and quick-drying master. Perfect for camp life. And with such flashy colourways and patterns, these socks won’t just be confined to the insides of shoes, but will be shown off at any given opportunity.

When it comes down to it, there really are few better gifts for campers than a good old pair of socks. But the giving of Bombas socks doesn’t stop there. For every pair purchased, Bombas donates a pair to the homeless community. A true gift.

Ombraz sunglasses

Ombraz Classic Armless Sunglasses

Sunglasses that are packable, comfortable, stylish AND eco-friendly? Yes, they do exist, but in a slightly less conventional form than what you may be used to. The Ombraz Classics don’t have arms!

This simple yet genius design equates to less brakages at times when you need the sun protection the most: when camping! They also don’t fall off your head when carrying out camp chores or during more adventurous activities.

If all that ain’t got you wanting to buy a pair of these innovative sunnies for all your camping pals, then Ombraz’s eco-efforts may just sway you. Ombraz plants 20 trees per pair of glasses sold, is a B-Corp company, and is 1% for the Planet and Climate Neutral certified. Best camping gift ever?!

The set also includes a double-wall insulated mug with a drink-thru lid that keeps your brew hot all morning while you get the campfire going.

Biolite Alpenglow 250

BioLite AlpenGlow 250 Lantern

With a vast array of fun, funky and calming lighting options, the AlpenGlow 250 by BioLite is one of the coolest camping gifts out there. It’s small and lightweight enough to take on short overnight hiking trips, but powerful enough to offer plenty of bright light to play cards by or light up your camp kitchen on your next car camping trip. It’s rechargeable via USB and you can also charge your device from it, should you need. But the best part is that aside from the single controller button, which allows you to dim, brighten and scroll through your lighting options, you can also alter the light mode by shaking it! So whether you want to eat by candle flicker or party in multi-colour mode, the AlpenGlow has you covered.

Frontrunner Grill

Frontrunner Spare Tire Mount Braai/BBQ Grate

This heavy duty grill is a superb way to cook over a campfire with versatility and ease. But it’s not the kind of gift you’d want to give to your average camper.

Elliot Brown Watches

On the face of it, these oh-so-stylish Elliot Brown watches belong on the wrists of those whose adventures go little beyond a casual cycle in the countryside. They shimmer with all the class and elegance of every other up market wrist watch out there. Even on closer inspection you’ll struggle to find anything out of the ordinary in terms of function and performance. So, when a note saying “please don’t look after it!” accompanied my new Elliot Brown Kimmeridge, I started to put the pieces together — these are no ordinary watches! A closer look at the Elliot Brown brand and their ambassadors helps one understand what these watches are really about.

These are no ordinary watches!

Meticulously designed with the true seafaring adventurer in mind, these watches are virtually bomb-proof! Every single watch is immersed in water at 200m, amongst other tests in equally harsh conditions — no batch testing here. And as if that’s not enough, their latest testing stunt saw their Broadstone model strapped to the mast of a racing yacht in the 2015/16 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race — it survived the whole year, ticking away perfectly from start to finish!

With Swiss-made chronograph movement, a shock-absorbing movement holder, marine-grade stainless steel case, and a hardened mineral crystal face with anti-reflective coating (amongst other exceptional components), it really is no wonder these waterproof and shockproof watches are proving such a hit in the adventure world.

And with a ladies range, a vast array of colourful new rubber straps, and 5 different design ranges to choose from, there really is something for everyone, no matter the scale of your adventures.

TemboTusk Wine Tote

The attached carabiner makes it easy to carry to wherever your campfire drinking may take you, and the metal shot glass provides an exceptionally handy way to enjoy the contents, in moderation of course.

Klik Belts

Just click it and go. Yep, wearing the Klik Belt really is that simple. Its innovative design means you get the perfect fit every time you wear it without fussing over it being too tight on one hole or too loose on the next. Better still, as your waistline changes over your life (as is its way!), the Klik Belt will just adapt with the changes. And yes, it will last you a lifetime.

The tough nylon webbing combined with the 7075 aluminium alloy Cobra buckles (the world’s strongest side release buckle, don’t you know?!) make this super sleek and stylish looking belt exceptionally desirable to wearers from all walks of life. From outdoor enthusiasts to those in the armed services (and pretty much everywhere in between), there’s a place for this practically perfect and mega robust belt.

The Cobra buckle is anodized for an hard finish that looks super sharp, and is in-keeping with the classy range of colours available. This unfathomably strong patented buckle is Austrian made in Austria, whilst the rest of the belt is manufactured in the USA. Klik Belts offer free shipping world wide.

But the best bit? If you ever find yourself in the sort of pickle where, say, you need to tow a car and don’t have a strap — you guessed it — whip off your belt and get clicking! This thing will step up to the challenge with no problem at all.

Tough, great looking, reliable, insanely strong and they won’t let you down — Cliffhanger would have turned out to be a very different movie had Klik Belts got involved!

They are available in 1 and 2 ply thicknesses with a couple of different width options, and you can even get a doggie collar for your pup!

Biolite 40 charger

BioLite Charge 40 PD Powerbank

Sure, camping might be all about connecting with nature and disconnecting from your phone, but there are times when it’s kinda really useful to keep the battery powered up.

Solar Shower

Eco-conscious: Uses renewable energy source to heat water

Some tact may be needed when giving this solar camping shower as a gift.

But however they receive it, once they’ve enjoyed the convenience and luxury of a temperature controllable 5 gallon outdoor shower to wash away the grime of outdoor living, they’re guaranteed to thank you forever. Providing there’s enough sun to heat up the water filled bag, the four layers of insulation do an excellent job at retaining heat. Camping luxury at its best.

Cabin Porn: The book

Ah, the humble cabin. A beacon of tranquility in which to escape the complexities of modern life. No stress, zero bars on your phone – just quiet contemplation, a crackling fire and perhaps a stiff drink or two. These days technology is ever present in our lives, and with distractions just a click away it’s become harder to focus on what’s actually important. So it’s no wonder the allure of escaping to a cabin is at an all time high. Which goes someway to explain why is so popular. The aspirational tumblr blog was started by Zach Klein, the co-founder of vimeo, back in 2009, with the simple goal to showcase the most enchanting cabins from around the world.

The stunning user-submitted photography is a great source of inspiration for anyone who dreams of one day building their own little getaway. Which is exactly what Klein and his cohorts did when they purchased Beaver Brook, a forest preserve in Sullivan County, New York, where they’ve built a cabin community with their own hands… and a power tool or two.

Their story, along with 10 other self-builders, is told in the wonderful new cabin porn book and sits alongside hundreds of amazing photos starring the most inviting cabins from the blog. It will certainly provide a brilliant reference to inspire you to make your own quiet place somewhere.
