Gift Ideas for Campers Who Love to Cook
1. Dutch oven
Cooking with a dutch oven is one of my favorite things to do while camping! A dutch oven will open up a whole new world of cooking opportunities for the camp chef in your life.
Great dutch oven options:
2. GSI Outdoors Rakau Knife Set
This knife set from GSI Outdoors is such a nice and compact gift. I love that all the knives come with protective covers and everything can be neatly stored in the carrying case.
3. Collapsible Food Storage
Is it weird that I love these food storage containers? These are so great for campers because they collapse when not in use, which means they’ll take up much less space in your camp kitchen bin. I love to pack these on camping trips for food leftovers.
4. Cooking Iron
The cooking iron is such a fun cooking device while camping! You can make all sorts of meals with a pie iron from desserts to delicious pie iron pizzas! They make campfire cooking so easy and fun.
This cover would be a nice addition to the pie iron!
5. Enamel Camping Plates and Bowls
These are the plates and bowls that I use when camping. They are so nice, but also really durable for the campsite.
6. A Taste of Cowboy Cookbook
This cookbook is full of recipes for the outdoors and at home. The author Ken Rollins grew up ranching and began cooking for cattle ranches in 1993. He also has a YouTube channel!
The book has stories and photos from the ranch too.
7. Insulated Coffee Mug or Wine Tumbler
There are a lot of great options for this gift idea! I use my insulated coffee mug every day at camp and at home. The wine glasses with the lid make it so you don’t have to worry about breaking glass or major spills. An insulated coffee mug is a must on chilly mornings at camp.
Here are some great options:
8. Stanley Insulated French Press
This Stanley French Press is for the coffee lovers in your life. If you like a french press, then this is such a cool french press for camping! Stanley makes durable high-quality gear and I’ve never seen anything quite like this insulated french press.
I will admit, it’s a lot bigger in person than I thought it would be, but for a large group of campers, it would be perfect! Pair this gift with your favorite bag of coffee.
9. High Camp Flask
This camping flask by High Camp is what I got Nick for Christmas this year. Don’t tell him! This is a pricey flask, but I’ve never seen anything like it for camping.
Nick and I like whiskey, so I think he’s going to love using this flask when we go camping. Every detail about this flask is so well designed and of high quality. I might have to buy myself one…
10. Stanely Adventure Happy Hour Kit
This Stanley happy hour kit is so cool and it’s a great price!
It’s a compact 6 piece set including a shaker, strainer lid, citrus reamer, and 2 insulated glasses. I was really impressed with the design and quality of this. For the camp bartender, this is perfect!
11. Camp Cocktails Book
This Camp Cocktails book is perfect to pair with the happy hour kit or high camp flask mentioned above! This book is full of delicious cocktails you can make when camping with friends and family.
There’s also a chapter on foraging. How cool would it be to make cocktails using the plants and flowers around camp?
