5 Camping Items To Elevate Your Getaway

Our Favorite Camping Products We Can’t Live Without


It’s about that time of the year: mid-May and the season to dust off your camping gear for summer trips. Whether you’re new to the camping game, or could use a gear refresh – here are some camping products to take your trip to a new level of comfort and fun. Each of these products are those that we personally own – and can attest that they are the real deal!


The Biolite Wood Burning Campstove

Price: $50-$130


This biolite camping stove is a dream for campers or backpackers who don’t want to lug around a full stove. This bad boy is light and mighty and ranges in price based on how tricked out you want the attachments to be. In short, you can power this stove with scraps of wood. After you light your wood scraps, an internal fan keeps your fire burning bright – this fan also powers a USB port so you can charge your devices in the woods! We usually use the charger to keep our lantern or portable speaker alive. This stove not only works efficiently to cook food, but it’s fun! I know, that sounds weird… a fun stove… but what kid or adult doesn’t like “managing a fire”?!

Okay, so this isn’t exactly essential gear – or is it?! We absolutely LOVE this bocce ball set. It’s durable for outdoor use, will last you a lifetime, and they glow in the dark!! Whether we’re camping with friends or need some entertainment for the two of us, this set does the trick. Bocce is a game that people of all ages can play, on almost any terrain, and can be as competitive or zen as you’d like.



Rome Industries 1705 Pie Iron Sandwich Cooker
Price: $16.99


If you’re like us, you don’t believe in compromising the deliciousness of your meals just because you’re camping. These magical iron firepit cookers are incredibly useful in throwing together easy delicious meals over the firepit. Our favorite things to make in these are: grilled cheese, apple pie, and little pizza pockets.


TNH Outdoors Premium Camping Hammock & Straps
Price: $40-$50

This hammock is a god-send! Have two trees and two hands? Great – you can set this up in less than five minutes. We love taking this hammock camping or using it on a sunny day in our backyard. It comfortable supports and fits two people, and the material is easy to clean and will hold up over time.


Grill Heat Aid, Fire Pit Gloves!
Price: $29.95

Buying this glove for someone who loves building fires, is essentially the equivalent of buying them a puppy. You may think I’m joking, but watch them slip this bad boy on and move some logs around on the fire… the look on their face will be the same. This glove will protect your hand from the flames and heat like a pro. Worthwhile investment that won’t break the bank.

And those are the 5 camping items we can’t live without!
