Christmas Gift Guide for Glampers

 

For families, festival-goers and people that prefer to experience the outdoors with home comforts, the glamper tends to take a relaxed, more stylish approach to outdoor living.

BUDGET: For the Glampers who can’t live without their morning Starbucks, these handy bags are the ideal stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift for them. The bag already contains ground coffee beans and a filter, all you have to do is pour hot water in, let it brew and then pour it into your mug. The coffee is sourced from Bolivia, Ethiopia Honduras and Brasil, and is easy to use and causes no mess. It beats carrying a heavy thermos around all day and with the change you have left over from a note, you can buy them the obligatory camping tin coffee mug as well!http://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/growers-cup-coffee-pouch-92210003?id_colour=143 price: £2 per bag.

SOMETHING NICE: After a long day’s hike, a slackline provides the ideal entertainment around a campfire. Simply lash the bands in place around two sturdy trees, and then see which one of you can walk the furthest. The entire package is surprisingly lightweight and portable, and is an excellent workout for building on your core strength and balance. http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Accessories/Slackline-Kits/Charko-Slack-Lines price: £42.99 for small kit.

spiderbandFLASHING THE CASH: This gift is ideal for weekend trips to the beach, where you can comfortably cook the day’s catch around a campfire with minimal mess. It can work just as well too camping in the mountains to cook breakfast or heating up stews. It is made from cast iron, as are the tongs, so while it might cook up an impressive feast for your friends, climbing up the mountain with it isn’t advised.http://www.theglamcampingcompany.com/glamdetails.php?prodId=262&category=35&secondary=&keywords= price: £98.99.
