The Best Camping Gifts of 2023
With innovative tent pole architecture, the Ikos maxes out interior space, making it a comfy, livable shelter suitable for all kinds of camping trips from backpacking excursions to national parks road trips. That you can deploy the rainfly from the inside of the tent—or as a standalone sun shade—are added bonuses.
The AlpenGlow Mini is a little gadget, but its ambiance-setting impact is big with the ability to cycle through various hues and warmths at the press of a button. This rechargeable LED lantern fits right in on the table in the camp kitchen or strapped to a tree branch or tentpole as an overhead camp light. (It's a perfectly outdoorsy stocking stuffer, too).
Camp chairs have come a long way from the folding foam seats you perch on the ground. The Moonlite is as comfy as they come, and still packs down to not much bigger than a water bottle. It's one of our favorite camping accessories and we think your loved ones will agree.
Incredible lightness and high-grade titanium aren't necessities in a camping mug, but we'll be darned if there's a camper out there that won't love sitting around the fire pit with a s'more stick in one hand and an ultralight beverage in the other. It may not have Bluetooth or an included charger, but it's one of the more unique camping gifts you'll find.
