Sustainable, Eco-friendly Gift Guide

As we enter into the holiday season, we’re often bombarded with ads upon ads encouraging us to buy the latest and greatest toy, trendiest fashion piece, or newest tech. As campers and lovers of the outdoors, we know it’s important to be mindful about our purchases and the impact they have on the environment. If you’re looking for some unique, sustainable gift ideas, keep reading!


Go hunting for hidden gems at a local antique store. Not only are antique stores great for finding one-of-a-kind gifts, they’re also a great way to bring new life into old products. Looking for a romantic gift? Vintage jewelry is perfect! Have a book lover in your life? Track down an old edition of their favorite book! There are so many unique and thoughtful gifts to be found, if you’re willing to search! We’ve even got some incredible antique shops nearby in the Gruene Historic District. 

Solar-Powered Phone Charger

A great gift idea for a frequent camper and hiker, the solar-powered phone charger from Blavor includes a compass and flashlight. Never get stuck with a dead phone and cut down on electricity, it’s a win-win! 

Reusable Food Storage

The perfect gift for avid campers that will not only save them money, but reduce the need for single-use plastics! Stasher bags are washable, reusable replacements for sandwich and snack bags, and come in a variety of fun colors and sizes. Bee’s Wrap takes the place of that fussy celaphane, and Earthwise Mesh Produce Sacks are great for grocery shopping!

Compost Bin

Got a green thumb in the family? Composting is not only a great way to cut down on how much trash you produce, it also creates excellent, nourishing soil for a backyard garden. The FCMP Outdoor Tumbler Composter is a simple, at-home compost bin. Turn your food scraps and yard waste into soil in as little as 2 weeks!

Reusable Water Bottle or Thermos

Yetis and Hydro Flasks are high-quality and an easy way to cut down on single-use plastics. Plus, there’s a ton of different sizes, styles, and colors to choose from. Personalize this gift by adding in some fun stickers (like our Camp Fimfo stickers, available at the General Store!)

We believe camping and sustainability go hand-in-hand, so keep the great outdoors in mind this holiday season as you begin to check off those lists.
