The Ultimate Camping Gift Guide for the Outdoor Lover in Your Life

Do you come from a family of wilderness explorers who love camping? Looking for the perfect gift for an outdoor-focused best friend? Look no further: Tread has you covered with this perfect camping gift guide. With this list, you can find useful and fun gifts for every outdoor enthusiast in your life. With different items from great companies, you’re sure to find the right gift for every camper on your list.

1. HighRoad Adventure Gear WoodGaiter

WoodGaiter- Camping Gift Guide

Here at Tread we love HighRoad Adventure Gear, so first up on our list is the WoodGaiter firewood carrier and utility mat. This handy carrier can hold the equivalent of two pre packaged bundles of wood. With less mess and a “gaiter design” that adjusts to different volumes of wood, your firewood is protected from the elements. The WoodGaiter also keeps your vehicle free of all the usual debris that wood can leave behind when it isn’t secured.

WoodGaiter HighRoad Adventure Gear

Best of all, the WoodGaiter has multiple uses. It functions perfectly as an overland mat when it isn’t carrying wood, and there’s no limit to how it can be used out on the road!

Price: $130.00

Muddy Mid Boots- Camping Gift Guide

3. REI Co-op Shower Roll

REI Shower Roll

Organization is absolutely key when it comes to showering while camping. Many shower facilities at campsites can be tough to maneuver, with stalls that have no where to put personal items other than the floor. With the REI Co-op Shower Roll, you don’t have to worry about your shower items resting on a wet floor. Designed to unfold and hang from hooks in shower stalls, this handy roll has pockets for anything you may need.

Price: $39.95

This tent cot from the Anniversary Series is a great option for personal sleep shelters. With an eleven inch lift above the ground, you won’t have to worry about rocks beneath your sleeping bag, or insects biting you at night. Unlike traditional camp cots, the Kamp-rite doesn’t have any of those uncomfortable cross bars or struts that can make it tough to sleep at night.
