As someone who fully appreciates living in a century where a house with running water and electricity is the norm, I’ll be the first to tell you that camping can be fun, but glamping is always a good time. There’s nothing you can do to guarantee a good camping trip, but packing a few luxuries (and checking the weather before you go) certainly won’t hurt.
That’s right – this is ridiculous and I know it, but how much better is it to sit on a sofa (albeit a plastic one) than a picnic table bench? Fair warning: people, including park rangers, will be within their rights to make fun of you for bringing a couch to a campground. But you’ll be comfy, so you won’t care.
This sofa can sit up to four people comfortably — and also deflates and folds away easily. It also pulls out and doubles as a bed for two, and is guaranteed to keep its firmness all night long.
The main thing standing between me and a full-blown love of camping is that I do not like being hot, and in the South there’s a lot of “hot” to go around. A fan is a must to keep the tent feeling like a cozy retreat and not like a vinyl tomb.
This fan in particular is awesome because it doubles as an flashlight (or even a night light if you want to read before bed while glamping). According to the reviews, the fan works like a charm and the light can last far longer than advertised.
This tent is so extra it almost didn’t make the list, but then I said, “Wait, they’re reading an article about glamping. Extra is their middle name!” and I’m adding it anyway. It’s beautiful and spacious and perfect for any and all boho/hippie Instagrams you may have planned.
Depending on how over-the-top you’re trying to be, you can get your tent 9.84 ft, 13.1 ft, or 16.4 ft — you can literally fit a whole apartment in one of these things.
Do I really need to explain this one? I mean, I’m going to, but you can feel free to skip ahead.
They’re made with BPA-free and eco-friendly recyclable material — a big plus for us environment freaks. While wine is the preferred drink for these glasses, you can put anything from hot tea to iced coffee in these bad boys.
You won’t have wifi and therefore won’t have Netflix, but you can pack along your favorite camping DVDs. The Parent Trap, Parks and Recreation, and Without A Paddle are three of my recommendations.
As a bonus, this projector comes with a built-in noise amplifier so you don’t have to crowd around just to hear what the characters are saying. And when you’re not glamping you can set the projector up in the living room and watch movies from the comfort of your own home.
You never have to live without green smoothies (or margaritas). The one drawback to this blender is that it does require recharging every once in a while, but if you’re a glamping girl it’s not like you’re going to be spend THAT long without internet access.
This blender is leak-free and perfect for single use — simply press the button and lay back.
You have to add your own hot water, but you can still get your K-Cup fix at your campsite. All you have to do is load your desire k-cup in, pour hot water in the clear tube, and press down to apply pressure.
If you’re not a K-Cups gal, a little propane in your Coleman Coffee Maker will make you a full pot of coffee, just like you’re at home.
Outdoor rugs make glamping cozy, mostly because they put another layer between you and the ground. Also because you know how a rug can tie a room together? When you’re glamping, your tent is basically one big room.
While you don’t have to get this rug in particular you should definitely get one with similar strength and durability (although it’s not like you’re going to be in the middle of major weather or anything). You can also use this rug in your backyard or on your front porch at home — multi-purpose.
My all-time favorite bluetooth speaker is the UE Megaboom. It’s rugged and waterproof and I never hesitate to tote it along outside. Mine is purple, which is the best, but they come in other colors too.
It’s known for how good it’s bass is (if that matters to you).
