As camping now becomes much more popular, an ever growing list of camping supplies makes camping even more fun and perhaps even more relaxing. So, when shopping for the newest camper in you life, how should you approach it? Here’s a list of our top camping gifts for dad!
Sleeping Bag A camping bag should be comfortable, easy to use and well designed. It should also be light weight enough to be folded up and easily carried in the car. Sleeping bags for kids come in all shapes and sizes and can be as fancy as any expensive camping gear available. To make sure that you’re getting the best value for your money, try to buy a sleeping bag that doubles as a hammock or a camping chair for dad to relax in.
Dad Waterproof Gloves/ Mittens Don’t leave your dad out of the picture when it comes to camping trips with the kids. Now he doesn’t have to bring those old and worn out rain boots and heavy-duty gloves. Instead, go with a pair of new waterproof mitts to keep his hands warm and dry. There are several options available, so you can find mittens/moisturizing gloves or mittens with corduroy lining that are lightweight and comfortable. If you want to add a little style to your trip, you may want to buy dad a matching camping shirt to wear over the sleeping pad.
Camping Shirt – camping shirts are made with lightweight material and should be able to resist the rigors of an overnight trip in the wilderness. They are also available in various colors, so mom and dad can pick the perfect color combination. Some shirts have removable elastic cuffs for a snug fit around the neck and shoulder, which is great for moms who want some protection from the elements. Shop for the best camping shirt that has pockets on the inside and outside of the shirt to hold important items like a map, cell phone, flashlight, and other gear items that are necessary for camping.
Hammock – Mom and dad will love these handy camping gifts for both them and their little one. The hammock can be taken apart to fit two individual sleeping bags, making this gift easy to transport from the car to the camping area. Since they are lightweight and easily folded, they make a quick and easy addition to any camping gift list. These easy to carry camping gifts are available in all sizes and colors, making them ideal for every camping trip.
Camping Fire – Another essential camping item, the camping fire makes it possible for dad to pitch his campfire and enjoy the night without having to worry about getting burned. You can find portable camp stoves that are lightweight and made of sturdy metal. Some of these have protective covers that are perfect for keeping your loved one safe from the elements and are waterproof so that your gift is not affected by the rain. Whatever gift you choose, make sure that it matches your camping theme!
