Camping is more than just an overnight adventure, it’s truly a way of life. So don’t embarrass yourself with some lame present they’ll never actually use. Go with one of these popular (and trendy) camping gifts!
Growing up, everything we learned about camping came from The Brady Bunch. We just assumed everyone only needed a flashlight where they could take out the batteries and store their hotdogs and beans. We’ve all evolved (plus, that can’t be good for you) and so have the essential just about every camper needs to have the best adventure of the season.
There are plenty of decent gifts out there for camping enthusiasts, but we’re not big on gifting them things they really should be picking out themselves, like the right sleeping back for them and the right tent for them. Instead we’ve compiled the ultimate list of ideas that they probably don’t have yet and will totally dig.
