Quick Top 3 Best Camping Gifts for Couples:
Looking for the quick favourites? Here they are!
Gifts for the couples that love Camping and Coffee
Whether car camping, random backcountry camping, or hanging out at home, everyone needs a good coffee to start their day, right? If this camping couple is also a caffeine loving couple, you’re going to be their new hero with this new great addition to their camping kitchen set up.
Or, if they prefer their coffee a little simpler, like the good ‘ol days, these Stainless Steel Percolators are super popular for campfire coffee. If they’re lovers of all things vintage, and you enjoy browsing flea markets and garage sales, you might be able to find them a beautiful vintage enamel camping coffee percolator, like ours in the photo below! (You can also purchase them new, but where’s the treasure-hunting fun in that?)
Another option is the french press. An insulated French Press is a great addition to any camping trip. It’s the perfect way to make delicious, fresh coffee right at the campsite and keep it hot for an extended morning of coffee drinking.
And, then, of course, they’ll want some fancy-dancy new coffee mugs to drink their tasty coffee out of. … or tea… or wine… or whatever their beverage of choice happens to be. A good camping mug is worth it’s weight in gold, especially if it’s a Yeti!
If you’re looking for enamel camping mugs head over to this gift guide for all whole variety!
We love our Hydroflasks! We use them all the time, year round!
We love our Hydroflasks. Over the years, we’ve purchased 5 of these! They’re stainless steel, and easy to clean (if you get a wide mouth version); they’re leak proof so you can throw them into your pack without worry, and they actually keep liquids hot! Or, in the summer, use them as a regular water bottle and they’ll keep the water nice and cool.
Get your favourite camping couple two, in different colours so they’ll each have one!
If this couple likes to enjoy a drink that’s a little more exciting, try this flask and steel shot glass gift set!

New Gear for Car Camping and Rving Couples
Camping gear is necessary for any outdoor adventure, and it’s always fun to upgrade and add new pieces to the essential gear collection. Plus, it’s such a bonus to be gifted a useful camping gift or practical item. These items will not only make their camping trips more comfortable and convenient but also show them that you care.
Camping gear gift ideas that should be easy to find at many random stores:
- A brand new first aid kit
- A pair of fancy camping chairs (like the ones Costco sells!)
- A portable power station
- Small solar powered phone charger
- A Bluetooth speaker so they can enjoy their tunes at the campsite
- A matching pair of headlamps (because matching couples are cute!)
- Outdoor games like cornhole, or giant yard games like Yahtzee
- A set of pie irons
- A beautiful new cast iron pan or dutch oven
- A fun and colourful set of roasting sticks, especially if they like entertaining at the campsite
These are the pie irons we have. One is cast iron, one is aluminum. The kids prefer a pie iron with the longer handle and the littler ones find the cast iron pie iron quite heavy to hold over the fire, but it’s fine if there’s a grate to rest the pie iron on.
Telescoping Roasting Sticks!
- Super handy
- Compact for storage
- Easy on small hands
- There is a wide variety of telescoping roasters available, but these are top-rated sellers

The Big Agnes Lightweight 2 Person Tent from REI
