Glampers have a slightly different take on camping – notching up the experience by choosing accommodations that are more luxe than rustic, bringing along the comforts of home, and upping the culinary glamp-side experience with cool gadgets that are also travel-friendly. Here are some gift ideas to help you get a head start on shopping for the glampers on your holiday list this year:
Chef’n S’mores Roaster: The cutest little petite s’more roaster you’ll find on the market, the Chef’n S’mores Roaster does not require a campfire and comes with stainless steel sticks so you don’t have to search for the perfect roasting stick. Available at crateandbarrel.com ($49.95).
Snow Peak Mini Hozuki Lantern: These are so cute and compact, every glamper should have one! Powered by AAA batteries, these mini-lanterns are “a compact, bright and versatile LED camping light.” There are three brightness settings and the Mini Hozuki has a runtime of 40 hours when set on high and 70 when set on low. Available from snowpeak.com or amazon.com ($49.95).
SetPower Portable Fridge/Freezer: As we said, glampers take it up a notch, so a cooler with ice might not cut it, but this portable fridge/freezer combo from SetPower may do the trick. Available from setpowerusa.com ($319), the investment may seem steep, but think of all those bags of ice that won’t be needed. This handy glamping accessory is highly-rated by users who say it is easy to set up, holds the “chill,” and is very portable.
Folding Camp Bench: They say glamping with friends is the best way to do it so why not provide seating for the gang? A good glamping gift might be the Folding Camp Bench that provides seating for two (available from bespokepost.com for $140). Portable, easy to clean, and easy to store, this could be the best seating ‘round the campfire.
Jouyek Outdoor Folding Table: Another great option for the popular glamping crew is the Jouyek Outdoor Folding Table (amazon.com $59.99) which provides plenty of surface space and under table storage with its zippered lockers. Reviewers say it’s lightweight, easy to fold, and sturdy.
Foodie Finds: Glampers are often foodies so a cookbook or two and some fun “gourmet glamping” accessories could make for some good gift-giving. The Ultimate Dutch Oven Cookbook ($17); Dirty Gourmet: Food for Your Outdoor Adventures ($22); the 12-Piece Cooking Utensil Set Travel Organizer ($30); or Coghlan’s Multi-Spice container ($6) are all good options and available from amazon.com.
