Camping Gift Guide: 8 Smart Tent and Accessory Choices for Any Type of Camper

Are you looking for the perfect gift for the person in your life who hates sleeping inside? Here are eight tents, plus some accessories, to get the camper. 

Camping is a great hobby because you can do it year-round. Sleeping outside is good for your health and camping for the weekend is a great way to reset.

From teepees to freeze-dried food, here are eight campsite accessories that you should consider when you are looking to get the camping enthusiast in your life a gift this season.

1. The Guide Gear TeePee Tent 18X18

This is a modern version of the traditional teepee. Using weather-resistant lightweight polyester, but with a teepee construction for more space, the Guide Gear TeePee Tent is the perfect gift for the traditional camper.

This teepee is incredibly spacious measuring 18 feet wide and 18 feet high. It can sleep 10 to 12 people and would make a great base or hunting camp that the whole gang can hang out in.

2. The Guide Gear TeePee Tent 10X10

This is the smaller version of the original Guide Gear TeePee. Maybe your smart camper wants a traditional teepee with modern materials but only needs room for six campers, not 10.

The smaller Guide Gear TeePee Tent weighs 14 pounds and is 10 feet across and 10 feet high. This one is the smaller compromise, if you can even call it that.

This tent is still very spacious and would make a great home base.

4. Food Supply Depot 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply Bucket 

When you’re camping you need more to sustain yourself than just marshmallows, chocolate, and beer. Make sure your camper has this Food Supply Depot 72 Hour Emergency Food Supply Bucket in case he or she runs out of the supplies they brought along.

Plus, even though these foods are dehydrated your camper won’t be skimping on taste. Some of the meals included in the emergency bucket are cajun pasta, cheesy rice casserole, and artisanal oatmeal. Even in an emergency your camper will be pampered.

5. Wise Food 5-Day Survival Backpack

Maybe the camper in your life is less of a car camper and more of a backcountry survivalist. Maybe he or she takes off for a week at a time with just the pack on their back.
