Luxury camping, also known as glamping, is on the rise, which raises a very important question for all of us: what glamping accessories do I need for my next trip? Well, whether you’re planning your first yurt camping trip or just looking for cool camping gear for yet another glamping escapade, this list of this summer’s 11 luxury camping essentials has you covered.
#11 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: VICTORINOX SWISS ARMY SWISSCHAMP XAVT
Every decent luxury camping trip needs a challenge. Invest in this Swiss Army SwissChamp XAVT by Victorinox and attempt to use all 80 essential functions. An altimeter, barometer, thermometer, corkscrew, can opener, tweezers, toothpick, scissors, fish scaler, magnifying glass, ballpoint pen, LED light. Phew. The price might seem a little steep for one camping trip but the sense of accomplishment will make it totally worthwhile.
#10 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: WOOD BURNING CAMPSTOVE WITH USB PORT
Being in a remote location doesn’t mean having to forego being connected with the world when you’re luxury camping with a Wood Burning Campstove from BioLite. Plug your smartphone in to the handy USB port, recharge and stay abreast of all of the goings-on in the world of social media. Heck, you could even Instagram your new Campstove for the world to see. (Note: Twigs and iPhone are not included with product.)
#9 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: CORDLESS ELECTRIC MEAT KNIFE WITH STAINLESS STEEL BLADES
Ever been away from home and faced with using an unmotorised knife with regular metal blades? Thankfully Yosa lets you pimp your next luxury camping trip with their Lightweight Cordless Electric Meat Knife with Stainless Steel Blades. What a mouthful. Cut your campfire-cooked meats with ease, but avoid using to cut the wood for the campfire – the blades don’t quite make it through.
#8 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: DOG BACKPACK
Bringing a canine friend? Unleash the resourceful survivor in you and see the potential your dog possesses as a pack-dog for all of your essential needs. Fit them out with one of these SarahTom backpacks or head to Outward Hound for some other good options. All can carry snacks and the electric knife above.
#7 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: DOLCE & GABBANA WELLIES
The outdoor nature of this pursuit makes walking outside inevitable. We know this is hardly what you signed up for with luxury camping, which is why these Rainboots, Gumboots, Wellington or whatever you like to call them boots, will be an absolute necessity. If you’re going to do it, do it in style is Dolce & Gabbana‘s motto. (Actually, it may very well not be Dolce & Gabbana’s motto, so don’t quote us on that).
#6 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: FLEXIBLE AND INFLATABLE BATH
Bathing outdoors in a picturesque setting is a magical experience and one that should be part of any luxury camping adventure. Tubble sells high quality inflatable bath tubs, or try this one for the ultimate in outdoor bathroom comfort.
#5 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: BEARDO HAT WITH ATTACHED BROWN BEARD
The hipster pursuit of luxury camping obviously requires a manicured beard. If you’re confident in your regular use of beard oil and the like to keep a well-maintained face mane, then perhaps this product isn’t for you. If, on the other hand, your beard could use a little nourishment then the BEARDO hat is just the ticket. A bare face is best for this accessory and there are plenty of other options from Beardowear. Just don’t go too crazy, you don’t want to look ridiculous.
#4 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: STATEMENT-MAKING ATTIRE
Camping purists are a painful and unnecessary part of any glamper’s existence. Put them in their place with a t-shirt that makes a statement. “Girls don’t camp. We glamp.” is a great start but if you prefer something a little more masculine, create your own with the guys at CustomInk. The sky’s truly the limit so go hard with your slogan – wear it with the pride and glamour of a true glamper.
#3 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: CAFE LATTE SET
Don’t settle for a regular cup of instant joe like other campers. With everything from stylish sporks to design-inspired flasks, Snow Peak know how to camp in style. Brew and froth your coffee like a pro with their cafe latte set. Did we mention its titanium? Enough said.
#2 LUXURY CAMPING ACCESSORY: $100 BILL TOILET PAPER
Let’s just be honest for a second. The call of nature will prevail, not even the glamorous in luxury camping can stop that.

The folks over at BigMouth Inc. know that there’s nothing more glamorous than dollar dollar bills, and your loo paper should set the tone for your outdoor experience.
