My Top 5 Camping Essentials are just that, they are ESSENTIALS for a comfortable trip, a good sleep, a clean and sun safe holiday!
My number one (any type of) travel essential, especially with baby/child in toe.
Because sometimes you are too tired/drunk/short on water/don’t want to make a mess in the kitchen sink to clean your face at the end of the day to wash your face properly.
Tinted (minimum) SPF 30+ face moisturiser
So quick and easy to apply first thing in the morning and I don’t have to worry about remembering to apply sunscreen again until lunchtime. WIN!
Happy Ears earplugs
Ideally you don’t want to have to use these on a trip but they are more of a security measure and mean you can be a lot less picky when choosing a spot to camp for the night. They are outrageously priced and can only be ordered online but in my extensive ear plug testing experience (I really have tried them all) these have come out as the clear winner.
Long sleeved thin button up style shirt
Who wants to get sunburned? I don’t even wear Tshirts in the sun anymore. A cheap thin button up shirt from Cotton On is my Go–To camping top. Doesn’t look too bad with jeans when you have to re-join civilization to re-stock on other camping essentials either.
