Top Camping Gifts for Her
If you don’t wanna search the internet for hours but still want to get your lady an awesome camping gift, you can’t go wrong with any of the following. These camping gifts are high quality, unique, and above all, super useful.
She’ll love ’em — the rest of us campers sure do! You might even fool her into thinking you know a thing or two about outdoor gear.
Kula Clothes are all the rage for woman campers. It’s an antimicrobial pee cloth that can be used over and over. It’s convenient, saves toilet paper, and is super useful (especially in the backcountry).
If she backpacks, the inReach Explorer+ is one of the best gifts you could give. It’s an emergency SOS satellite communicator and navigation system that shares her real-time location. Basically, it’ll help keep her safe on her adventures.
Camping gear is notoriously expensive. Sure, I get why — it’s technical and needs to be durable enough for the outdoors, not to mention save lives. Still, sometimes it’s too expensive and that’s perfectly okay!
Luckily, there are plenty of affordable (and quality) camping gifts under $50 so you won’t break the bank getting the perfect gift for the woman on your list. These camping gifts are small and fun, but also useful and she’ll get a kick out of them!
She’ll love the cozy ambiance that these mini string lights create! Because they’re built for the outdoors, these string lights are portable, durable, and compact and can easily be hung from tents, cars, trees, and more.
This cool camping gift turns the harsh light of a headlamp into a soft lantern. Simply put a headlamp inside the stuff sack, hang it, and enjoy the soft, diffused light! Plus, the stuff sack can be used for storage. Win-win.
Fill it Forward is the gift that keeps on giving. Every time the bottle is refilled, Fill it Forward gives clean water to a community in need. If she already has a ton of bottles, you can also get a sticker that works on any bottle!
Does she like to kick back with a beer or other canned drink? Well, this beer cozy will keep her drink cold all night long. Perfect! Plus, it compresses down into itself and takes up basically no room.
Slipstream is the Netflix of outdoor adventure films! For only $5 per month, she can get psyched up for camping, hiking, and other fun outdoor adventures. Slipstream has over 300 movies, ranging from short films to feature-length movies.
When she goes camping, she’ll probably spend a lot of time at the campsite! After all, camping is a great time to kick back, relax, and have fun. These gifts will definitely keep her entertained when she’s hangin’ out in the outdoors.
Practical items are a big winner when it comes to hiking and camping gifts. She’ll use these over and over and will love them even more with every trip! From solar chargers to backcountry kitchen gadgets, and more, I’ve got ya covered.
The Lifestraw water filter is a super practical camping gift! Not every camping spot has great water, so she’s sure to use this. It has no shelf life and can filter 4,000 litres of safe drinking water without using chemicals. It protects against bacteria, parasites, microplastics, dirt, sand, and cloudiness.
Lightweight camping chairs tend to sink into soft ground, which is super annoying. Luckily, Chair Buddies are an easy-to-use, lightweight clip that prevents that! They snap onto tons of brands, including Helinox, REI, Big Agnes, and more.
Vacuum-sealed water bottles are a godsend on camping trips. They keep drinks cold (or hot) for hours (even if they’ve been sitting in the sun) and free up a ton of space in her cooler! Plus, the Hydro Flask is leak-proof.
Would she love a portable, smokeless firepit? Uhh, yes! Using real logs or charcoal, the flames are super-efficient and can even be controlled with a Bluetooth app! She’ll also be treated to a 360° view of the fire. How cool is that?
Coolers can be downright expensive! Luckily, the RTIC Hard Cooler is high-quality without breaking the bank. It’s packed with features, including keeping ice up to 10 days, bear-resistant, non-slip, and way more. Plus, it’s super durable so she can use it for years!
The JetBoil Flash stove is a great addition to a lightweight camping kitchen setup! It’s super fast and boils water in less than two minutes, plus it’s small and compact. And there’s a push ignitor — no more fighting with matches!
When it comes to camping gear, items that do double duty are awesome! And that’s exactly what this insulated can cooler does; it doubles as a cup. It keeps cold drinks cool and hot drinks warm whether she’s drinking a can of beer or a mug of hot chocolate.
Privacy is often a luxury while camping. Luckily, this popup tent will give her just enough privacy for things like changing, showering, or even hiding a portable toilet. And a mesh portion at the top allows for enough airflow!
If we’re being honest, how many of us actually shower when we’re camping? Well, if she’s going on an extended camping trip or wants to feel human, solar showers are super handy! This one has four layers of insulation which ensures the hot water actually sticks around.
This portable camping stove doesn’t need fuel — just the sun! It can cook full meals in about 30 minutes and heats up to 550°F. Whether it’s a cloudy day or the dead of winter, she can whip up a delicious meal in no time.
There’s nothing like snuggling up on a camping trip. Rumpl blankets are a great pick for campers because they’re lightweight, packable, water-resistant, and durable, but still super warm. They’re perfect for sitting around the campfire or cozying up under the stars.
A quality sleeping pad makes all the difference. It’s the difference between waking up achy and irritated or full of energy! Therm-a-Rest makes great sleeping pads, and the NeoAir XLite is lightweight, compact, durable, easy to inflate, and best of all, comfortable! She’ll thank you every night!
Camping and comfort don’t often go together. But thanks to this lightweight and compact pillow, which combines an inflatable core with a padded top, it’s totally within reach! This pillow is much more luxurious and comfortable than traditional inflatable pillows.
Camping and cold drinks (aka, alcohol) are basically synonymous. Instead of using a cheap wine glass, gift her a seriously upgraded wine tumbler! It’ll hold up to camping life way better, plus it’ll keep her drinks cold.
These are comfy, almost slipper-like shoes for hanging around camp. Teva Ember Mocs are easy to slip on and off thanks to the collapsible heel and the quilted top will keep her feeties warm. She’ll thank you over and over!
This is such a cute pull-over that’s perfect for cuddling up next to the fire, wearing around town, or even on a road trip! It’s great for normal layering on cool autumn days and will keep her feeling comfy and stylish.
