We all know Christmas shopping can be a challenge. Gift cards are great, but aren’t always heartfelt. Everyone loves getting cash, but it can show a lack of initiative. What do you get the person who seems to have everything? It’s usually best if we can narrow down the recipient’s interests and/or hobbies and go from there.
Well, I have some good news! If you have a camper/RVer in your life, there are all kinds of unique gifts sure to please. Chances are, he or she won’t have one of the items listed below. Whether or not you purchase one of these directly, hopefully this will help spark some ideas. Enjoy!
I’ve listed them in order of pricing:

These are a fantastic white elephant gift, but are also great for camping! You never know when you might need one…

Driving to the campsite without a tent? Sleep in this hammock that can be affixed to the roof of a jeep or the bed of a truck!

OK, so you’re not actually going to defy gravity with this backpack, but it is extremely nice for camping, hiking or really anything outdoors.
You can’t write about camping gifts without including a tent, and this three-person canvas allows you to get off the ground (where the animals are) and into the safety of the canopy.
Hot Tub Hammock-
Yep, the name says it all. You can take a hot tub while relaxing in your hammock. If there’s a better way to spend time outdoors, I don’t know what it is.
Whether or not you’re actually into glamping, this tent is awesome. Really, you could actually live in this thing.
Invisible Man Kit-
For when you REALLY need to get away…This isn’t necessarily camping gear, but for someone special in your life who’s looking to disappear, look nowhere else.
