Looking for a gift for a backpacking hiking and camping enthusiast?!

Every camping and hiking trip requires thorough planning and the right gear. Whether you’re camping or backpacking for a single night (or several nights), you need the right equipment to ensure safety and comfort!

You can use this list to plan your own hiking/camping trips or use it as a gift guide for camping and hiking enthusiasts in your life.

Here's the ultimate gift guide for campers and hikers!

Sundome Tent

The Coleman Sundome tent is an excellent choice for couples. It's weatherproof, comes with stakes and rainfly, and is very easy to setup. It's very lightweight and easy to carry around.

Ultralight Backpacking Air Mattress

The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Xlite ultralight backpacking air mattress is most likely the lightest sleeping pad available in the market. It's compact, easy to carry, easy to inflate and deflate, it's a must-have for a goodnight sleep.

North Face Sleeping Bag

I love this North Face Dolomite One Bag! It's incredibly soft, comfortable, lightweight, and keeps you warm throughout the night. It's meant for temperatures above 20 degrees, works pretty well in spring and summer.

Inflatable Pillow

This might be the last item one can think of, but believe me, you don't want to leave this behind. A pillow is a must-have for a good night's sleep! The Nemo Fillo Elite is compact, easy to inflate, deflate, and it hardly occupies any space.

Lantern with Ceiling Fan

I am in love with this inexpensive gadget! The Odoland portable LED camping lantern with ceiling fan is a must-have! I love that you can hang it, make it sit on a table, and easily fold and pack in your backpack.

Portable Pop Up Shower/Privacy Tent

While some might think of this as a luxury item, I simply love this and can't think about going camping without it. The WolfWise portable pop up shower/privacy tent is easy to install, dry, and pack.

Portable Outdoor Shower

Yet another great invention! This Ivation portable shower is battery powered, rechargeable, compact, and easy to carry. You just need a bucket of water, and you can enjoy your shower anywhere.

Cooking Stove

When it comes to a portable cooking stove, I highly recommend the Jetboil Flash camping stove cooking system. One might think it's only for liquids, but with few additional accessories like the hanging kit, pot support, fluxring frying pot, it's a complete cooking system.

Camping Utensil

I love this eco-friendly titanium ultra-lightweight utensil! It's of excellent quality, compact and comes with a breathable, quick-drying pouch.

Cooking Utensil Set & Grill Accessories

This is a great compact, lightweight, and easy to carry utensil and grill set. It comes with a neat carrying case with pouches for each utensil. The utensils are easy to clean and are dishwasher safe.

Camping Cutlery Set

This Camping Cutlery Set is of good quality, durable, and easy to clean and carry. I love that it comes with straws and chopsticks, making it the most comprehensive camping cutlery set you will find in the market.

Water Bottle With UV Water Purifier

I love the LARQ insulated self-cleaning, stainless steel water bottle with a UV water purifier! I don't like using plastic and collapsible, reusable silicone water bottles. LARQ gives me peace of mind, with a single charge I can get purified water for a month.

Pressurized mister & shower water bottle

This is a multipurpose water bottle! Simply pump to build pressure, adjust the nozzle to select between mist, shower, or stream. There's so much you could do with this, wash utensils/dishes, misting, washing hands, and much more.

Solar Charger

This solar charger is well built for outdoors! It's waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof. It has four solar panels and is very efficient, it can charge two devices simultaneously.

Portable Charger

The RAVPower portable charger is a game changer! It's a portable power bank with a 80W AC, USB-C, and USB-A outlets. That means I can charge my MacBook, my iPhone, iPad, camera batteries, and my drone using this one power bank.

Compact Fast Drying Towel

The Rainleaf microfiber towel is unbelievably absorbent and fast drying! These are super soft, ultra-light, easy to carry and comes with a reusable bag.


GoPro Hero8 is still my favorite action camera! It's built really tough, waterproof, in-built image stabilization, and the several mounting options make it my go-to action camera. I use it when kayaking, biking, or simply mount it on the car's dashboard to capture a scenic drive.

DJI Mavic Mini Drone

Trust me, this is not a DJI sponsored article, I am simply in love with the DJI products. This is the smallest drone in their drone product line, but it's a beast. It's compact, has a built-in camera with 3-axis motorized gimbal, 30 minutes flight time, and excellent video quality makes it my favorite drone.

DJI Osmo Pocket

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a compact, handheld, and yet very powerful 3-axis gimbal-stabilized handheld camera for smooth cinematic videos and stunning photos. This has become my go-to camera for all video shoots and is a must-have for every traveler.
