Whether it’s your daughter, uncle, neighbor, or teacher, we’ve got you covered with gift ideas for the person on your list who loves to sit by the fire and wake up with the sunrise.
Black diamond COSMO HEADLAMP
At $39, this headlamp may not be the king of lights, but it’s perfect for booting around the campground and hikes that take a little longer than expected.
This lightweight, packable hammock can serve as a stocking stuffer or an un-guess-able gift for under the tree. It comes in about a hundred different colours – from army green to psychedelic tie-dye – and rings in at $89 for a double. It also comes in a single version ($79), but…well, we don’t want anyone reading too deeply into that, do we?
JETBOIL CAMP STOVES
Ask any staffer in the store, and they’re likely to tell you that the Jetboil is the easiest, and prettiest, camp stove you can use. It comes with an integrated cooking pot, can simmer for your omelette and pancake endeavours, and is $135-160.
NEMO COSMO SLEEPING PAD
We all know that Uncle Ralph still sleeps on his Thermarest that he bought in 1992. He says it’s good enough, yet complains about his back when he comes home from a weekend in the woods. For the camper you want to spoil (or save), the Cosmo insulated pad is perfect for all four seasons, and comes in regular ($219) and XL ($249) sizes so you can choose how luxurious you want their sleep to be.
AEROS CAMP PILLOW
We love the inflatable Aeros Pillow from Sea To Summit. It packs down to nearly nothing. You can even buy extras and give them to Santa to drop off at our houses if you want. $47-75
