Great things come in small packages and this is especially true of the Weber Q 1000. Packed with all of the features and high performance of a Weber, the Baby Q is small enough to take anywhere making it the perfect gift for that BBQ nut in your life who is also partial to a spot of camping!

2. Ticket to the Moon Parachute Hammock

RRP: €65

Parachute hammock

We are loving these funky hammocks from Ticket to the Moon. Available in a range of colours, these lightweight hammocks are made from parachute material making them super hard-wearing. The elasticity of the material means they are also super comfy too – hop in and you’ll never want to get out! The hammocks are available in single or double size, but we reckon the latter is worth the extra tenner!

Available from Great Outdoors

3. MSR Spork

RRP: €4.99

Rolling two of the most useful pieces of cutlery into one, this handy little item is one of those things that will get used time and time again and thanks to the high quality we have come to expect from MSR products, it will last you a lifetime. And for only €4.99 it makes a perfect stocking filler.

6. Thermarest Treo Camping Chair

RRP: €80


Sitting on the ground sucks. It is just not comfortable. But let’s face it, carrying chairs is pretty cumbersome. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across a chair that can be packed away to almost nothing that is genuinely comfortable to sit in – I was over the moon. You can read my full review of the Thermarest Treo Camping Chair for more details.
