After receiving a ton of positive feedback from my Top 15 Amazon Camping Essentials blog last week, I decided to make another camping essentials post this week, however, this time I wanted to include items that a more seasonal camper would recommend so I asked my sister in law to share some of her favorite recommendations with me. The best part is the all of these items have free shipping and nothing costs more than $130!
1. Nalgene Tritan Wide Mouth BPA-Free Water Bottle: The first item that my sister in law shared with me was this incredibly affordable water bottle that can be used for both cold and hot water and is a huge MUST HAVE for camping in cold temperatures! She told me that the best way to use these water bottles is to fill them up with boiling hot water and stick them at the bottom of your sleeping bag while you are sleeping to ensure that your feet feel nice and warm throughout the night. These water bottle are leak proof, easy to clean, and come in over 21 different colors. They have over 37,000+ reviews and some colors are currently on sale for only $8!

2. Coletti Bozeman Coffee Pot: If you are looking for the perfect portable coffee pot, then this 9 Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker is a HUGE MUST! This coffee pot comes in two different sizes (9 Cups or 12 Cups), is dishwasher safe, and each purchase goes to support a small veteran business that gives all of their proceeds to charity. It has over 5,000+ reviews and has fast shipping! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3uiUt9Y
3. Pair of 6 Debra Weitzner Thermal Socks for Men and Women: If you are looking for another option to keep your feet warm while camping and you don’t want to use a hot water bottle, then these thermal socks are a MUST HAVE for your next camping trip. These socks are heated for winter and insulated for cold weather. They are comfortable to wear, easy to pull off, and have a thick lining made to keep your feet warm in colder temperatures. My sister in law couldn’t recommend these socks enough and I will definitely be purchasing a pair for my husband for our next camping trip! They have over 4,600+ reviews, come in two different colors, and two different sizes! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3bQOT8p
4. Arcturus Military Wool Blanket: Another good option to have to keep warm while camping is a nice wool blanket to cozy up in front of a camp fire with. This blanket is made out of 80% wool, is machine washable, is large enough to share with a friend, and is warm and dependable even when wet. This blanket would be perfect to take with your camping or keep in your car as an emergency blanket. It comes in 3 different colors and has over 4,200+ reviews!

This griddle is the perfect size for camping, is made out of stainless steel, and has an oil disposal that is great for collecting grease residue while cooking so it is easy to clean up after each use.

6. Rom America Portable Butane Gas Stove Burner Camping Stove: If you are looking for something to cook food on or boil hot on without using an open fire, then this little portable gas burner camping stove is the perfect alternative for your camping trip. My sister in law brought hers with her during our camping trip this past weekend and she used it to make some incredibly delicious corn on the cob for dinner! She also used this little burner to boil hot water for her water bottle and to heat the water for washing the dishes. This little burner is seriously a great deal for the price and has almost 200 reviews! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3oUSx6p
7. GSI Outdoor Santoku Knife Set: Another camping essential that you need in your life us this set of outdoor santoku knives!

It has over 330 reviews and is ergonomic that is universal for both left and right handed people. You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3vqRyxk
8. Lightspeed Outdoors PVC-Free Self-Inflating Insulated Sleep Camping Foam Pad: When my husband and I went on our camping trip this past weekend, we used an inflatable queen mattress to sleep on in our tent and although it was pretty comfortable to sleep on, it was not very practical for us to use in our small 4 person tent. Instead, my sister in law told us that she uses these sleeping foam pads and prefers to use these over the inflatable mattress while camping. After using the inflatable mattress for one night during this camping trip, my husband and I have decided that we will be purchasing two of these pads to use in the future instead. This pad is self-inflated and does not need a pump to fill up. It comes with an integrated pillow for additional comfort and is made out of high quality material so it is made to last! It has almost 300 reviews and is currently on sale right now for only $40! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3wERI4a
9. UST Spright LED Collapsible Water Resistant Lantern with 100 Lumens and Hook for Camping, Hiking, Emergency, and Outdoor Survival: This lantern is very versatile and reliable. It includes a hook that can be used for hanging or can be used on the ground. It can run up to 5 days of continuous use on the nightlight setting and is very practical for the price! It has over 100 reviews and the collapsible feature is my favorite part of this lantern! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3yJJtpk
10. LED Headlamp Flashlight with Bright Waterproof Headlight: I know that in my previous blog post, I had mentioned another set of headlamps that I really liked, however, my sister in law recommended these as well so I figured that I would include them in this post. These headlamp flashlights are lightweight and compact, they have an adjustable headband, and have 4 different lighting modes to switch between high beam, low beam, red beam, and red flashing lights. It has 4 reviews (all 5 stars) and would be great to use for camping, walking, hunting, jogging, running, hiking, and reading! You can purchase this on Amazon at https://amzn.to/2RRduDh
