With this stylish gadget, campers can brew pour-over coffee like a pro at home, in the office, or even outdoors!
The Stanley Pour Over coffee set is a traditional way to brew using a Stainless Steel filter. It is easy to use, and environmentally friendly. Since it has a reusable coffee strainer made from stainless steel, it is better quality than plastic, ceramic, or glass coffee filters, and it’ll save money in the long run (no need to buy paper coffee filters).
9. Darn Tough Hiker Micro Crew Cushion Socks
Darn Tough Hiker Micro Crew Cushion socks provide miles of comfort and durability, perfect for any camper that likes to hit the trails during the day. These socks were actually tested in the wild before being put into production and they were proven to provide a great level of cushioned performance.
Darn Tough socks are made with custom-count, shrink-treated merino wool that effortlessly wicks away moisture and breathes to regulate temperature for outstanding comfort in a variety of conditions.
My boyfriend has two pairs of these and I swear, I am always fighting him for them for our hikes because they are that comfortable. It also doesn’t hurt that the socks’ color combos are so attractive!
10. The Ridge Minimalist Slim Wallet For Men
The Ridge wallets are all the rage in the minimalist community. The typical leather bi-fold gets packed with faded receipts and unnecessary cards, resembling something more like a suitcase rather than a wallet. The Ridge is minimalist without being limiting.
In a nutshell, their wallets are expanding wallets that protect your cards and cash. The main cardholder uses elastic to expand to hold up to 12 IDs and credit cards.
These high-quality wallets are made from Aluminum, Titanium, or Carbon Fiber, depending on the build/style you choose. Their minimalist designs provide maximum utility ― letting you do more with less ― which is perfect for the rugged camper in your life.
11. Sea to Summit Aeros Premium Pillow
A camping pillow is probably the most forgotten-about thing when it comes to camping gear. What often ends up happening is that we campers end up having to ball up our jackets and other extra clothing to use as a pillow. Don’t let that camper you know suffer in this conundrum! Get them an inflatable camping pillow this season.
Not only are these babies surprisingly comfortable, but they also pack up into nothing, meaning they can easily pack, store and take this anywhere with them.
12. Jolly Green Products Rotating Marshmallow Roasting Sticks
Want to make perfect s’mores or hotdogs in a jiffy? With the gift of stainless steel roasting skewers, campers no longer need to use random dirty twigs or disposable bamboo skewers.
This pack of 5 portable roasting forks is the perfect gift for campers who enjoy roasting things over the fire. They are super sturdy and come with a convenient rotating handle. The length of these roasting sticks also makes it safe for kids around campfires.
13. Katadyn BeFree 1.0L Water Filter
Give the gift of clean water! The Katadyn BeFree is a collapsible water bottle that filters up to 1, 000 liters of contaminated water without using chemicals or other devices. It allows you to hydrate quickly and easily, filtering up to 2 liters of water per minute.
We love this bottle for its collapsibility, packing down small to fit in tight spaces (jacket pockets, purses, backpack, fly vests). It’s also super easy to clean–all they’ll have to do is simply shake or swish the filter to clean debris, no backflushing or extra tools required!
14. Black Diamond Spot 350 Headlamp
If you think the camper in your life is in need of an upgrade on his/her headlamp, then this award-winning headlamp will make for a great stocking stuffer choice.
This latest version of the Black Diamond Spot headlamp features a more compact design, updated user interface, and improved multifaceted optical lens design that saves battery. This headlamp will ensure that they’ll see what’s ahead or right in front of them, even in the darkest hours.
15. Hydro Flask Mug – 12 fl oz
Campers love mugs, but a lot of the ones on the market do not come with a lid. The Hydro Flask mug does! It comes with a convenient closeable, press-in lid that slides shut to prevent splashes and slides open wide enough to fit straws.
The lid also works in tandem with the TempShield™ double-wall vacuum insulation to keep contents hot or cold for hours, making it perfect for camping in all seasons.
16. Swiss Army Classic Knife
Every camper could use a trusty little multi-tool, so if the camper you know doesn’t currently own one, this is a wonderful stocking stuffer option!
The lightweight, all-purpose Swiss Army Classic Knife includes scissors, a blade, screwdriver, nail file, tweezers, and a toothpick. That’s right, this Swiss Army knife offers dozens of uses, yet weighs a mere 1.3 oz.
It also comes with a lanyard ring which allows the knife to clip to your keyring so it is always handy (and not lost at the bottom of their duffel bag).
17. Stasher Reusable Silicone Sandwich Bag
We all know that it’s easily possible to generate a lot of waste while camping. With all the plastic baggies many campers use to store their cooking ingredients, meals, and more, there’s a lot of room for improvement in creating less waste.
Made with pure platinum silicone, a healthier alternative to plastic, Stasher Reusable Silicone bags are reusable and plastic-free. They are also highly flexible! You can bake, microwave, sous vide, boil and freeze them.
Ultimately, the Stasher Reusable Silicone Sandwich bag helps you save money and create less waste. They are not only the perfect stocking stuffer for campers but for practically anyone who cooks or eats!
Another popular size is the Stasher Stand-Up Stasher Bag, which fits 28 fl oz.
18. Honey Stinger Waffles
Hikers, campers, bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts alike have given Honey Stinger Waffles their stamp of approval for years now. Personally, we also love packing these waffles for our outdoor adventures.
This delicious, energizing snack basically has a layer of honey sandwiched between two thin waffles. They are packed in a single-serving wrapper for easy packing, making it the ideal snack for those constantly on the go. They also make the perfect snack for post-workouts, bikers, hikers, marathon competitors, or anyone looking for a quick snack!
19. REI Co-op Multi Towel Mini
Debating whether to bring a small towel on your next camping trip should be no debate at all. These are one of the most convenient things ever for outdoor enthusiasts!
The REI Co-op Multi Towel Mini is a lifesaver when needed (absorbs up to 3 times its weight yet wrings out almost completely dry), yet saves room in your pack with its compact size and weight. It might actually be the perfect camping companion!
These towels are great for using on the face, hands, body, or even as a dishtowel. Comes in a small carry pouch with a mini carabiner for easy attachment.
20. HotHands Hand & Toe Warmers
Campers can finally say goodbye to stiff, cold hands and feet. We love gifting campers HotHands warmers because they are just so darn practical.
Single-use air-activated heat packs basically serve to provide everyday warmth to people hanging out in the outdoors and are ideal for keeping your body warm when the temperature gets cold. They are even TSA approved, meaning campers, travelers, fishers, tailgaters (and anyone else really) can take these anywhere with them!
This combo pack includes 24 pairs of hand warmers and 8 pairs of toe warmers.
21. HiBAR Shampoo and Conditioner Bars
Want to give the gift of cleanliness and feel good about your purchase? Consider adding solid shampoo/conditioner as one of your stocking stuffers. These high-quality bars will last at least as long as a 16oz bottle and are the perfect size for traveling.
HiBAR is a great brand to support because its products are so environmentally friendly. They are guaranteed to be 100% plastic-free–from the packaging to the product to the shipping materials, everything is plastic-free. On top of that, all of their bars avoid ingredients like parabens, phthalates, or sulfates, so they’re gentle on all types of hair.
This set comes with three of their most popular salon-quality shampoo and conditioner bars, in miniature, try-them-out form.
