About This Camping Gift Guide
First of all, let me congratulate you for taking the time to find the perfect gift for those special camping lovers in your life.
I want to share some things because I want that chosen gift to be memorable.
I am all about functional (something that can be used), experiential (sharing an experience or paying for somebody to have an experience), or gastronomic (if you want to send me a platter of different cheeses, I will gladly accept it) gifts.
When it comes to camping gifts, functionality is the way to go. Think about it. You are actually giving something useful that is going to simplify a person’s life. Plus, the gift recipient will think about you when using the gift.
Because of that, most of the gift ideas for campers here are intended to be useful. Also, I am focusing on providing a decent balance between durability and value. And, I know, couples want to have romance, fun, and excitement when camping. Because of that, I will cover some couples’ camping gear along those lines.
More Couples Camping Gifts Resources
Below you will find tons of camping gifts for couples but if you want to get even more ideas, make sure to check out my extensive gear/gift guides:
Couples Camping Accessories and Gear
Scroll down to take a look at the most awesome camping gear for couples. These work well for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and other celebratory occasions.
Couples Camping Chair
For those couples that cannot be separated for long, a portable double chair or loveseat is a must!
The model sold by OmniCore Designs allows for different seating configurations. For example, two people can seat side by side or in a more semicircular way taking advantage of the moonphase shifting feature.
The chair comes with padded seats, armrests, and cupholders. The weight capacity is 300 pounds per chair. That is a total of 600 pounds!
Double Sleeping Bag
Ohuhu’s Double Sleeping Bag fits comfortable two adults. The neat thing is that the bag can be unzipped and converted into two individual bags. What about that?
This bag is designed to perform even when exposed to the elements. It is water and dirt-resistant. The padding is made of cotton for that extra comfort element. Oh, and it comes with two pillows!
Of course, I have to include a hammock. I mean, oftentimes, a hammock is a synonym of paradise. When it comes to couples, what about cuddling in a hammock under the shade of a tree?
Wise Owl’s Hammock is manufactured with the same material used in parachutes. So, you know this is an item that is going to last ages (and withstands 500 pounds). In addition, the hammock has been designed for easy setup. No ropes or knots are needed. The item packs small and it is easy to carry.
A sofa hammock may be a nice gift for those who want to hang around a campsite in comfort while keeping things simple.
If you do not know what I am talking about, just take a look at the Wekapo Inflatable Lounger Air Sofa. This cool-designed portable coach does not require a pump to inflate. It has been created with an ingenious way to easily inflate and deflate it. It fits two people sitting and one lying down.
Serapes, also known as Baja blankets or Mexican blankets, are pretty popular in Southern California. The style and material of these blankets are used in jackets, sweatshirts, bags, and backpacks too.
Blankets like the ones manufactured by Benevolence LA are woven on wooden looms by artisans. They are extremely warm and add a pop of color to any camping trip. They work as a photo prop as well.
The Oceas Sherpa Camping Blanket has a layer of sherpa, a type of fleece created to resemble sheep’s wool. This type of material is associated with indoor use. However, the Oceas Blanket has a waterproof bottom that makes it a perfect accessory to cuddle in front of the campfire.
Having a blanket like this outdoors feels like pure luxury!
Personalized Husband and Wife Camping Partners Blankets
Personalized camping gifts for couples are the best. Wow your friends or loved ones with a personalized sherpa blanket.
This particular blanket features colorful camping vehicles, tents, campfires, and forest images. The center of the blanket can be personalized with a couple’s name and a short message. The blanket is extremely soft, machine-washable, and designed to withstand the elements. There are three sizes to choose from.
Anybody who is used to enjoying the outdoors knows how difficult is to maintain a phone charged. More if you are using it to take pictures, post on social media, navigate, make calls, and many other things.
A power bank, like the Anker Portable Charger, is what has worked the best when it comes to keeping phones alive. This device can charge a phone 5 times. That is a game-changer when you do not have access to a power outlet in a day or two. And, carrying the charger is like carrying another phone (it is that small).
A company called Radiate manufactures a portable campfire that provides 3 to 5 hours of fire without wood or embers. Think about the product as a circular can (similar to the blue ones where Danish butter cookies come) filled with recycled soy wax and paper. This is a single-use or reusable product that only weighs 4 pounds.
Without a doubt, any camper needs a lantern. But, not any lantern. A lantern designed to survive the elements. That is why Vont’s LED Camping Lantern is such an incredible option. This lantern has been manufactured with military-grade materials. This makes it water-resistant and shockproof.
The lantern is collapsible. When collapsed, it is as big as a cell phone. And, let me not forget to mention that it provides 360 degrees brightness for 90 hours (with the same batteries). It comes in packages of 2 or 4.
Solar Camping Lantern
When you are on the go, finding a way to power your electronics is a top priority. Batteries can be a hit or miss (and you always need backup). That is why a solar lantern is one of the best gifts for campers.
My top pick here is the LuminAID Nova Solar Camping Lantern. This super bright, collapsible solar lantern (packs flat) has many amazing features. First, the lantern is completely waterproof. You can even submerge it in water and it will not get damaged. In addition, it is built to resist other outdoor elements such as dust, sand, and dirt.
On a high setting (75 lumens), the battery lasts 5 to 6 hours. You can lower the brightness to make the battery last longer. The lantern can be also be charged using a USB cable.
Hanging Solar Camping Lights
I have to confess that I feel envious when I see campsites decorated with string lights. They look so cool! And, if we are talking about romance, what about some ambiance light?
To achieve this awesome look, I recommend the Brightown Outdoor Solar String Light. These are bright, efficient, lasting (8-10 hours), waterproof and beautiful. They come in 7 different colors, so you will be able to mix and match. The other nice feature is that these lights have 8 lighting modes. Oh, and in each order comes with two strings of light.
The HEETA waterproof dry bag is ideal for all outdoor activities, such as kayaking, swimming, cycling, hiking, and anywhere in and around the water. It provides excellent protection for clothing, electronics, and other valuables in all weather conditions.
The bag is made with durable wear-resistant material using seamless technology. It comes in various sizes (5L, 10L, 20L, 30L, and 40L). It is available in 7 different colors, including clear, to find items easily without having to rummage.
Each bag comes with a free waterproof cell phone case and adjustable handle and shoulder straps allowing the bag to be handheld or carried as a backpack.
Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
The Kunodi waterproof Bluetooth speaker has a silicone design and interface that ensures the product is waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof. An aluminum attachment enables the speaker to be attached or hung anywhere. A built-in microphone and hands-free function allow owners to pick up a call when connected to a smartphone.
The speaker comes with a built-in high-capacity lithium battery. Supports devices such as iPads, iPhones, Samsung phones, Macbooks, MP3 players, or laptops. Available in black, red, or blue.
His and Hers Camping Gifts
Here are some camping couple gifts for those who like camping-themed clothes and accessories.
Mr. and Mrs. Mugs
Camping couples would adore a set of Gelid’s Camping Mugs. Even though they are super cute, they are well-built (stainless steel) and durable.
In the same style, Cam n Honey sells mugs that say “Hubby” and “Wifey.”
And, I cannot get enough of the cuteness of the “Mama” and “Papa” set from Funny Bone Products.
Guys will love Lavley’s socks printed with camping and outdoor patterns. The phrase “I’d Rather Be Camping” is printed on the soles.
For ladies, Hot Sox’s camping socks are pretty cute.
Waldeal’s caps come in different colors and patterns. Camping lovers will adore the “Take Me To The Mountains,” and “Camping Hair Don’t Care” styles.
Couples have the option of wearing matching outfits with the cool “Happy Camper’ t-shirt from UNIQUEONE.
Camping-themed pajama pants make a super fun gift. Lazy One sells a pair featuring bears and moose. They are advertised for men but ladies can order a pair as well. They have other equally cool outdoor designs.
Foodie Gifts for Couples Who Camp
Below you will find tons of ideas for friends who like to camp and eat.
But, coffee first. Right?
If you know a couple who cannot function without coffee, the Stanley Adventure All-in-One is the perfect camping gift idea.
This 32 ounces vessel can be used for boiling water, brewing coffee/tea, or cooking. Besides, it serves 4 and comes with a lifetime warranty.
For those who prefer to prepare coffee home (or other beverages) and pack it for a trip, I recommend getting the Stanley Vacuum Insulated Bottle.
This bottle keeps liquids hot or cold for over 24 hours. You have no idea how much I enjoy having hot coffee when waking up at a campsite. And, knowing that coffee was prepared the morning before is priceless.
For couples, I recommend getting the 2-quart bottle.
An insulated tumbler is another must since it allows easy access to drinks (it can be placed on a beach chair/car cup holder). The Thermos Vacuum Insulated Travel Tumbler is the way to go. It keeps drinks hot for 8 hours and cold for 12 hours. Its stainless steel construction makes it basically indestructible. You can see why it makes the list of camping gear for couples.
Wine Tote Bag
And, ahem, I will say a wine tote is a must for any camping couple.
Tirrinia makes a super cute, insulated, and padded tote bag (fits 2 bottles) that keeps wine chilled for hours. The adjustable elastic inner divider keeps bottles separate, preventing them from crashing into each other. An elastic band secures bottles and tumblers (you can fit 2 bottles or 1 bottle and tumblers).
The sturdy handle and adjustable shoulder strap have been designed for easy carrying. The tote comes in 11 different colors and stylish designs
Insulated Wine Tumblers
Here in California, most times, there is a winery (or shop carrying a wide wine variety) located close to campgrounds. Yes, we drink on mugs or red plastic cups but a wine tumbler is a more stylish option.
SUNWILL Insulated Wine Tumblers are beautifully built (the color choices are insane), maintain the temperature of a beverage, and come with a lid to prevent spills.
Stainless Steel Insulated Can Cooler
A stainless steel insulated can cooler is a total game changer!
The one sold by Brumate keeps canned drinks cold from the first to last sip. Plus, forget about the can sweating (and having water everywhere).
On top of that, their color selection is outrageous. You can buy matching or individual colors for a couple.
They have regular and slim can models.
Wine and Spirit Tumblers
Above, I mentioned Brumate’s can cooler but the company does more than that. In fact, they have a wide selection of beer, wine, and spirits products designed for the outdoors. And, let me tell you their designs and colors are super stylish. Any of their products make an amazing gift for outdoorsy couples.
Bartender Travel Bag
A bartender travel bag will make a big impression on creative and fun couples.
Barillio Portable Waxed Canvas Bag comes with everything needed to prepare cocktails on the go. The bag itself comes in a warm brown tone with leather straps and stainless steel finishes. The 17 tools included are rustproof and designed to last. An illustrated recipe cocktail recipe guide is included as well.
Camping Silverware Set
I was such a pro at forgetting to pack cutlery when I used to go on a camping trip. Since I kept forgetting, I decided to buy a camping-specific silverware set. I am sure anybody will appreciate a gift that takes away from the stress of packing for a trip.
Wealers 13-Piece Cutlery Set is compact, durable, and easy to carry.
Besides, I love the sets from TAIBID since they come with cutlery, plates, cotton napkins, a cutting board, a cheese knife, and a wine bottle opener.
For all the chefs out there (or wanna-be chefs), a grilling set will work wonders. ROMANTICIST sells a 20 piece, professional set including a spatula, thongs, brush, kabob skewers, corn holders, and more. Everything can be stored in a compact included case.
The Jolly Green Roasting Sticks are great for cooking on the fire marshmallows, hot dogs, vegetables, and other items. These sticks are unique since they can be extended for use and collapsed for storage. As with other items on this list, it is all about being as compact as possible.
I do not know about you but I am kind of addicted to s’mores. I know it is relatively simple to put together the ingredients to make some but it would be so much fun to receive a kit as a gift.
Hershey’s (of course) sells a kit to prepare 18 s’mores.
They also sell a s’mores caddy which keeps ingredients organized.
Decor Camping Couple Gifts
In this section, I provide some ideas for camping-themed gifts that can be used to decorate a house, campsite, RV, or trailer.
Camping Rules Vintage Sign
This metal sign can be used as an inside or outside decoration.
This tablecloth manufactured by Bowery features vintage campers, signs, and compasses. It is made of an easy to clean, durable material.
This two towel set includes “Happy Camping” and “I Heart Camping” styles.
Life is Better at the Campsite Coasters
A set of coasters with fun, vintage RV and trailer designs make a nice gift to use at home or at the campsite.
Life is Better at the Campsite Outdoor Mat
The same goes for a mat that can be placed outside a camping tent or trailer. Or, it can be used indoors by camping lovers.
Asamour sells a set of 4 pillowcases featuring camping and outdoor motifs. These have so many uses!
Camping Games for Couples
Yes, games make wonderful gifts for couples.
Couples Card Game
The Ultimate Game for Couples comes with 200 cards featuring questions or challenges. It is designed to help couples connect on a deeper level but it can also be used as a collective game (competing against other couples). This is a great option for road trips, day trips, camping, and other outdoor adventures.
Hilarious Card Game
So, when it comes to funny camping gifts, I can recommend a card game your friends are going to love. Judging from the name, These Cards Will Get You Drunk, you know this is not your typical game.
This popular set comes with 100 cards that pose challenges or instructions to players. And, guess what happens if a challenge is not fulfilled. Yep, somebody has to drink (shot or sip). This game may take you into the wee hours.
Talk, Flirt, Dare! Game
I have yet another recommendation when it comes to camping games for couples. Talk, Flirt, Dare! Is a card game with three levels. Couples can choose to keep things funs or heat them up.
Beat That! is a game that comes with 160 challenge cards. It includes instructions on how to prepare, execute and collect points on each challenge. Everything needed to complete the challenges is included. The game is easy to learn and compact enough to carry around. Competitive couples will enjoy this game for sure.
