What gift do you get for the outdoor lover that already has all of the camping, hiking, and adventure gear they ever need?
Don’t worry – there’s always new outdoor gadgets or gear that can add something special to their next outdoor adventure!
Here are some of my favorite gift ideas for outdoor lovers, hikers, and campers.
This is a great a great camping stocking stuffer! It’s only $5 and really comes in handy to have all of your essential spices with you while camping. You can just keep in your camping bin, so you’re always ready and packed for your next adventure!
Want more than a stocking stuffer for the camper that loves cooking? Consider this utensil organizer! It comes with all the utensils you need for a camping trip, spice container, and scissors, so you’re always packed and organized for your next trip.
If you’ve seen my camping mugs on my Instagram feed, you’ll already know that they’re from ODYSEAstore. I love the designs of this unique camping gift.
If you just can’t decide what to get your outdoor loving friend, consider an outdoor subscription box! They’ll get to try new gear and outdoor snacks every month. Nomadik is one of my favorites!

5. ENO Backpacking Hammock
Camping hammocks somehow are both a luxury and a necessity. I love my ENO hammock. It’s a great gift for some who loves the outdoors. Just try to find out if they have one yet… while you can get a different design, most people don’t need two.
This might seem like a random gift, but if you know someone who loves backpacking, they’ll also love receiving freeze dried meals. Freeze dried meals get pricey, but it’s so nice to have some on hand for your next backpacking trip.
Grab a few different meals you think they’d like to create your own backpacking supply box as a gift!
This water bottle filters your water as you drink! It’s great for backpacking or travel. An avid backpacker will love it as a gift, since now they won’t have to spend time on the trail pumping water through a filter or using iodine drops.
Topo Designs is a local business based in Colorado. I love their designs, and the quality of all the gear is top notch. The above image is of me with my favorite day pack for short hikes or going around town. If you haven’t checked them out yet, I highly recommend you do! You’ll find a gift any outdoor lover will appreciate.
9. Mess Kit
I love my Wealers camping bowls! They accompany me on every trip. Consider giving a new mess kit for someone who loves camping! They’ll appreciate having dish ware that they can keep in a camp box and always grab and go. The storage back is also a great addition.
10. Flexware Sink
Let’s face it – doing dishes while camping kind of sucks. You can make it a lot more pleasant by having a collapsible dish tub! It doesn’t take up much space when you go camping, but is great for washing dishes.
If you’re camping in a big group, I recommend getting two or three. You can clean dishes like a camping pro using minimal water by having a dirty rinse bucket, soap bucket, and clean rinse bucket.
Looking for a fun gift for that person that really has every bit of camping and hiking gear? I bet you they don’t have Pocket Cocktails yet! Have a cocktail while backpacking or camping with these fun gifts.
12. Pocket Blanket
These blankets literally fit in your pocket. They’re great for a day hike or to keep in your backpack so you always have a blanket on hand for any outdoor adventure.
A nice set of binoculars is a great gift idea, especially for someone who loves wildlife as well. I’ve seen quite a few moose in Colorado now, and many of them were from a pretty far distance. Every time I spot one I wish I had binoculars!
Here’s a practical gift that any outdoorsy person would love. Having a good multi-tool on camping trips or other adventures is always handy. Plus, they can use this for far more than just camping!
15. Mag Striker
This is a fun emergency survival gift idea that would make a great stocking stuffer! The flint rod will last long enough to start over 100 fires.
16. Darn Tough Socks
If you know someone who hikes holes through every pair of socks they own, get them some Darn Tough Socks. These are my absolute favorite hiking socks! They even have a lifetime guarantee – that’s how confident they are in these socks. You’re not going to get any holes in them while hiking.
17. Backpack Cooler
Love to pack picnics on hikes? This cooler backpack is great for day hikes and picnics.
18. Inflatable Kayak
This is a gift for someone who loves the water! An inflatable kayak makes a great addition to any camping trips by a lake. They are a lot more affordable than a standard kayak and easier to transport for camping trips or other adventures.
Every camper needs some quality cast iron. I personally love this multi-cooker. You can use it as two skillets or combine them as a dutch oven to cook directly in your campfire embers. Looking for inspiration on what to cook? Check out all of my camping recipes too!
If they already have a dutch oven, try to check if they have a griddle yet. These are great for “grilling” on your camp stove or just to make pancakes for breakfast!
21. Camp Dish Towels
These cute towels are a great gift for someone with a camper!
This inflatable lantern is also solar powered! I love these on my camping trips! Charge them during the day and use them at night. Also, since they are inflatable they don’t take up much space in your backpack or camping box.
This is the gift for the outdoor beach or lake lover. These inflatable “sofas” are fun (and a bit silly), but most importantly, they are comfy! They also float, so you can take them out on the water too.
The worst unpacking experience is taking out a smelly, wet towel from your backpack. I love my micro-fiber towel! They are super light-weight, but most importantly, they dry really fast! They’re great for travel, camping, or backpacking.
