Camping Gift Ideas

A great camping gift for the outdoors lover in your family will make him/her happy, and make you the hit of the party! Camping gift can range from cheap ($3-$10 for camping food and small camp supplies) to the expensive ($500 or more for high quality gear).

If you know the gift recipient loves camping but little else specific information, a safe route to take is by buying gear that everyone uses. Camping food, camp gear such as stoves, lanterns and water purifiers make excellent gifts in these circumstances. Books (and magazine subscriptions) also make great gifts. A trail guide for an area near where the recipient lives is always appreciated.
