Amazing Camping Gear for Father’s Day

I can’t say I’m a huge fan of Father’s Day. I mean I kind of prefer Mother’s Day if I’m honest, but even that’s not so big around here either. Basically I’m lucky if there’s a cup of tea in bed. I have to make it myself of course, but hey, you take what you can get. But that doesn’t mean I necessarily apply the same approach to Father’s Day. It’s kind of nice to spoil the father of your offspring every now and again and as the day falls in the lead up to camping season I’ve decided to make the most of it this year.

So throughout the week, I’ll be posting some damn inspiring camping gear that’ll turn the Dad in your house into one seriously happy camper.

The 4-IN-1 is a lens that slips over your iPhone and includes Fisheye, Wide-Angle and 2 Macro lenses – 10x and 15x. The lenses are made of precision ground, coated glass multi-element optics, the barrels are made from aircraft grade aluminium and the attachment is made from a soft plastic material to ensure a secure fit every time. So it’s Tonka-tuff. They cost £59.95 and you can order one here.




Equip your nearest Father with all the kit required to assume the position of man of the house by making his own bacon to bring camping. Imagine how well that will go down! Wrap it up with a nice juicy slab of pork belly from your local butcher, and he’s away. The kit includes a curing bag, cure, maple sugar (if he fancies maple bacon) and a thermometer. The belly is cured in the curing bag then popped in the fridge and left for 7 days. Then into the oven it goes for a couple of hours (nearly there) and after it’s cooked and cooled you can slice it as thick or thin as you like. What’s more, this bacon won’t shrink or release a heartbreaking pan full of water. It’s bacon as bacon is meant to be. Order one from Firebox for £19.99.

The snazzy Mon Oncle barbecue by RS Barcelona is a total winner. Closed, it’s a briefcase with character. Open it’s a portable barbecue that can be used on a tabletop, at the beach and of course, while camping! It’s super innovative, fun, hard wearing and most importantly, useful. They’re €280 and you can order one from RS Barcelona.

Stay tuned for more brilliant Father’s Day ideas!
