NEMO Galaxi 2P Tent with Footprint: $200

Nemo Galaxi Tent - Camping Gifts

Out of all the camping gear you could need, a tent is at the top of the list. And the Galaxi two-person tent is not only affordable but also built to withstand unpredictable weather and regular use. Double entry means you don’t have to climb over your campmate to get out, and the rollback fly allows for easy stargazing. The included footprint provides extra ground protection.

Columbia OutDry Rogue Reversible Jacket: $185

Columbia Outdry Reversible Rogue Jacket - Camping Gifts

Like two jackets in one, the OutDry Rogue Reversible Jacket is built to withstand cold, wet conditions. Best of all, it’s breathable. Traditional rain gear uses interior waterproof membranes that don’t allow for air flow and a water-repellent coating that degrades over time.

With OutDry Extreme, the rugged exterior is a watertight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell. Warm, dry, and reversible, it’s the perfect pick for unpredictable camping weather.

MSR Pocket Rocket Stove Kit: $100

MSR Pocket Rocket Kit - Camping Gifts

The Pocket Rocket stove is a classic for good reason. It packs down small and cooks like a champ. And the Trail Lite Duo Cook System is a 10-piece cook set that has everything you could need to make a meal for you and a friend. It’s a great option for backcountry adventures and weekend camping trips.
