’Tis the season for holiday shopping!
It’s that time of year where we are all soaking in the holiday spirit and making shopping lists. All we want to do this season is give the absolute perfect gift to all the people we love to show how much we appreciate them. No pressure.
If you’re on the Gander blog at this time of the year, you’re probably thinking about a very important question… “What do I get for my friends who love camping?!?!”
Fear not, my friends, I’ve put together a list of the best stocking stuffers for campers. Good for you for being such an awesome friend who gives such personalized gifts!
Don’t let mosquitos, ticks, and chiggers ruin your friend’s future camping adventures! Give them some insect repellent wipes or a pocket sized insect repellent spray, so they will always be prepared for the trails. No one is a happy camper when they’re itchy.
Camping doesn’t have to be smelly, especially if you give your camper all the right supplies to stay smelling fresh. Sea to Summit’s pocket shower, wilderness wipes, and pocket towel will make great stocking stuffers for your gift.
Carabiners and Stretch Cords
There is always something that needs to be hung in the air or tied together at the campsite, so these items are perfect additions to your gift. Plus, they make great stocking stuffer fillers! Stretch cords and carabiners are a cheap way to add a lot of value to your gifts.
Staying organized while camping can be a tricky task. If it were easy, there wouldn’t be so many articles on Pinterest about it! Give your camping friends the gift of organization with these cool stuff sacks from Sea To Summit:
Remember when you’d open up your stocking as a kid, pull out a pack of socks, and try to hide your disappointment? Well, those days are OVER. Getting socks in your stocking as an adult is pretty awesome, especially if those socks are made of wool and made for hiking!
Wool socks are my absolute favorite camping accessory. They are warm and cozy, super comfy, and don’t hold smells like other socks do. Check out these great socks from SmartWool and Darn Tough:
- SmartWool Women’s Outdoor Advanced Light Crew Sock
- Darn Tough Women’s Hiker Micro Crew Sock
- SmartWool Men’s Outdoor Light Crew Sock
- Darn Tough Men’s Hiker Micro Crew Sock
This stocking stuffer is awesome and super useful for camping trips because, as the name implies, it includes all kinds of tools in one space efficient little package! These are a must-have for any camping trip and will be the highlight of any stocking this holiday.
Solar Lights and Headlamps
Every evening at the campground needs great lighting!
I LOVE these MPOWERD Luci solar lights. I have the original and the colored one and it really adds an element of fun to my camping trips. The packaging is very compact, so it will easily fit into your stocking and it’s just a really cool product.
Another great stocking stuffer is a headlamp. These are so useful on camping trips for walks to the bathroom at night, setting up your tent in the dark, etc.
Pepper Spray and Personal Alarms
Who wouldn’t want pepper spray in their stocking?!
You hope your camper will never have to use them, but one should always be prepared in case of an intruder in the campsite or an aggressive animal encounter. It’s definitely one of the most “unique” stocking stuffers for campers.
