If you overhead the camping enthusiast on your list mentioning that they broke a piece of gear, or you heard them grumbling about something that they're missing, that's a good place to start when selecting a camping themed christmas gift.
If you're looking for something your camping enthusiast probably doesn't have, but will wonder how they ever got by without once they have tried it out, then the list below is for you.
Christmas Gifts for Campers ListA few suggested christmas gifts for campers.
- Exped DownMat Sleeping Pad - Camping during the colder months of the year necessitates a few winter camping items. One good one is a winter sleeping pad, such as the DownMat from Exped, which uses a layer of down to give the sleeper an extra bit of warmth during the night. Most campers only have a summer sleeping pad, which makes this a great christmas gift for campers.
- SteriPEN Adventurer - Most campers have the standard pump filter to turn creek water in to drinking water, but there is a new, better option, UV light. The Adventurer is SteriPEN's most popular UV filter, and it makes a great christmas gift for campers who like to have the latest camping and hiking technology.
- Joby Gorillapod - Most campers like to bring along their cameras, but the problem is always finding somewhere to put the camera for group shots. Joby solved that problem with the Gorillapod. It's adjustable legs can be used anywhere, making it a great christmas gift for campers who like to take a lot of pictures.
- Snow Peak Titanium Multi Compact Cookset - All campers love to upgrade their camping equipment, and there is nothing better for cookware than titanium. It's far lighter than steel or aluminum, and heats up very quickly, so you don't waste any fuel. A titanium cookware set makes a great christmas gift for campers who are always looking for a lighter piece of gear.
- Mont Bell Alpine Down Parka (and the Women's version) - Camping during the colder months requires that you have the proper gear to stay warm, and few things will keep you warm like a good down jacket. Goose down is lighter and packs smaller than anything else that will keep you as warm, and Mont Bell is well known for making excellent down garments.
- Helle GT Knife - Every camper should have a good camping knife. They come in handy in a variety of ways around camp, and make a great tool in emergency situations. The GT knife by Helle has a classic design that most will be familar with, and is made from some really high quality steel that is guaranteed to hold up over the years, making it a great christmas gift for campers on your list.
