Victorinox Swiss Champ

From the makers of the Swiss Army Knife, this multi-tool has 33 different functions for indoor and outdoor use. It's a useful piece of equipment to have on you at all times, and could even be a lifesaver when out camping.

The Swiss Champ can be relied on for simple tasks like opening bottles or cutting fabric, but even obscure tasks like cutting through wire or sawing wood can be achieved with this multi-tool. Campers are all-too familiar with the struggles of not always having the right tool to hand, and the Swiss Champ helps to avoid that.

Hot Rox Electronic Hand Warmer

Hot Rox Hand Warmer

We all know somebody who always seems to be cold, and the Hot Rox hand warmer is a great way to help avoid that problem. Keeping your hands warm can provide a great deal of comfort, but it's also important to be able to use your hands around the campsite.

Ideal for cold nights at the campsite, or for those long treks in colder temperatures, the electronic hand warmer can be a useful companion to keep hands toasty. It has two heat settings and a six-hour battery life that can be recharged via the USB cable.

WACACO Nanopresso

WACACO Nanopresso

Is there a better gift than a portable espresso maker for the coffee-loving camper? Instant coffee is an easy way to get that coffee fix while outdoors, but it's hard to beat warming espressos, cappuccinos and lattes.

The Nanopresso from WACACO is a hand-powered coffee maker that uses hot water and finely-ground beans to pour flavourful shots of espresso. It also comes with a handy protective case!

We listed the WACACO Nanopresso in our round-up of the best portable coffee makers.

Sealskinz All Weather Mid Length Socks

The Sealskinz All Weather Socks were shortlisted in our picks of the best walking socks.

Intex Inflatable Camping Chair
