Keeping beverages chilled while camping can be a challenge. If white wine is on the menu for your glamping experience, it is fun to use a cute bottle insulator to keep your wine at the right temperature.
8. Picnic Stix Wine Glass & Bottle Holders
Playing a leisurely yard game like Bocce Ball during your glam camping happy hour doesn’t mean you have to forgo a glass of wine.

Grooming, Pampering And Glamping Gifts
Regular camping includes getting a little dirty and personal grooming takes a backseat to rugged outdoor experiences.
Glamping, on the other hand, is a bit prettier and pamper-filled.
Here are a few DIY glamping ideas for girly-girl glamping activities with grooming accessories that also make great gifts for glampers!
16. Hang Window Sheers For Pretty Touches
Use plastic shower curtain rings to hang grommet window sheers on awnings to create a pretty touch to a standard tent canopy.
17. Body And Earth Spa Gift Basket
Spa gift baskets make great gifts for glampers who enjoy a bit of personal pampering on DIY glam camping trips!
This spa gift basket includes shower gel, bubble bath, bath salt, potpourri, body scrub, body mist, body lotion and soap all nestled in a pretty wicker basket.
The natural ingredients help to moisturize and soften dry skin which is of supreme importance when glamping.
18. Waterproof Toiletry Bag
Some of my favorite glamping activities are DIY manis & pedis!
I start by putting travel-sized bottles of liquid soap, moisturizer, minimal makeup, nail polish and fun jewelry in a waterproof toiletry bag that is compact and easy to carry.
Glamping Lights & Illumination Accessories
Mood lighting is essential for DIY glamping after the sun goes down. There is nothing worse than a super-bright utility type of light when you are glam camping.
You should have a bright work-type light available in the event you need to do some sort of task at night … but, for the most part, keep your lighting low with candles, soft string lights and lanterns. Here are a few ideas…
21. Natural Lemongrass Citronella Mosquito Repellent Candles
This is one of those unique glamping ideas that is stylish and totally functional because candle light is so soft and pretty and if you use natural lemongrass citronella candles you can ward off mosquitoes too!
It is probably no surprise that my favorite glamping lights are powered by fire rather than bulbs!!! Thinking you want a little more protection from the bugs beyond good-smelling candles? See how to keep bugs away so you can enjoy your glamping experience!
22. Solar String Lights
String lights are commonly used when camping. When looking for lighting glamping accessories, I recommend using solar string lights that have a soft warm glow. It is a plus using lights operated with solar power so you don’t need to worry about electrical plugs or batteries!
There are so many styles of camping string lights, you’re bound to find the perfect set!
23. Inflatable Solar Light
I just LOVE our Luci Inflatable Solar Lights! They can be hung from almost anywhere … plus, they are lightweight and compact which is great for transportation and storage. They come in a variety of colors which helps create a special glamping mood.
Glamping Decor Ideas
Decorating your campsite area and inside your tent or RV is totally a glamping thing. There is no practical or utilitarian use for glamping decorations … they are just cute and fun!
Don’t you just love the idea of glamping gear that is hanging around “just because” it feels pretty and makes you smile?!? Here are a few glamping decor ideas…
24. Bunting Banners
You can easily add a splash of color around your entire campsite with decorative flag bunting banners. They look adorable hanging from trees, awnings and tents.
One of the things I really like about this glamping decor idea is that these things are cheap, lightweight, easy to pack and create a huge impact! It can also be a homemade glamping DIY craft project you do in advance of your do it yourself glamping trips!
25. Camp Casual Plush Throw
Glamping would NOT be glamping without cute throws! When it comes to DIY glamping, it is easy to swap out a normal camping blanket with a stylish one.
You can use a throw with a sophisticated color scheme or use one with a whimsical retro glamping theme like this camp casual throw. I like glamping accessories that can be used on a glamping trip or at home … they also make great glamping gifts for your girlfriends too!
26. Cute Throw Pillow Covers
Using decorative cases for throw pillows allows you to change a color scheme instantaneously. You can use them inside tents, RV trailers as well as on your outdoor glamping furniture.
Look for cute throw pillow covers that make you smile! You can use gorgeous bright cases with fun textures and geometric designs, but I especially like cases with glamping sayings, quotes and images!
This is one of those fast, easy and affordable RV tips and hacks to turn camping into glamping.
27. Fun Camping Flags
Putting a flag up to mark your temporary home is one of those popular glamping RV ideas but not as popular when it comes to tent glamping accessories.
I think the reason is because it is really common for RVers to have personalized flags at their campsites … so it just makes sense to use adorable flag glamping decorations when you are glam camping.
I encourage DIY glamping tent campers to use one of these too! Choose a Fun Camping Flag that fits your glam camp style.
28. Let’s Adventure Glamping Doormat
Dirty glamping gear is not acceptable! That’s why this doormat is the perfect mat to place at the entrance of your tent or RV. It stays with the glamping theme while performing the needed function to keep the dirt out of your glampsite.
This indoor/outdoor mat makes a great glamping gift too.
29. Use Photo Booth Props For Quick Decorating
Here are a few lightning-fast decorating glamping tips … Use photo booth props to add glamping style around the campsite and as a fun outdoor photo booth glamping activity!
Capturing memories of your glamping experience is a must! And, using a whimsical Happy Camper Photo Booth Props Kit makes it so easy!
Entertainment Glamping Gear
It’s all about the setting! I would be the first person to tell you to put away electronic devices and get back to nature when it comes to camping. But, glamping is an entirely different experience.
Watching a fun “chick flick” under the stars with a slight evening breeze while lounging in a comfy chair is an awesome DIY glam camping experience! Here are a few entertainment glamping ideas…
30. Camping-Themed Pop Sockets
There are some luxuries that come with having your phone on glamping trips! So, you need a PopSocket that fits the theme of your other glamping accessories!
This Happy Camper PopSocket is one of those gifts for glampers who want to stay connected … stylishly!
31. Glamping-Themed Adult Coloring Books
Adult coloring books have become super popular as people realize the creative activity of coloring is a wonderful way to reduce stress! Being surrounded by pretty things while relaxing is my focus when I am glam camping.
Using Assorted-Stick Twig Colored Pencils to color a glamping-themed adult coloring book, like this Happy Campers Coloring Book, is a way to combine a little rustic natural feel to a relaxing glamping activity.
These also make unique gifts for glampers!
32. Fancy Movies
When people ask me how to turn camping into glamping in unique ways, I say this one is off-the-charts! One of the most classic chick flick’s is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It makes a perfect glamping movie!
If your DIY glamping trip is long enough, you may need an entire series! Get the entire The Audrey Hepburn DVD Collection set! Whichever you choose, watching a girly-girl movie under the stars is totally fun!
33. Outdoor Movie Equipment
Drive-in movies are a thing of the past but that doesn’t mean you can’t watch your favorite flick under the stars on your next glam camping trip! Outdoor/Indoor Movie Night Portable Projectors are designed for tons of fun and should be on your glamping equipment list.
And, whatever you watch … don’t forget the popcorn!
Projector with WiFi and Bluetooth, TOPVISION Native 1080P Portable Movie Projector, 9500Lux , Touch Screen, 350” Outdoor Projector Compatible with PC, Laptop, TV Stick, PS4, EXCEL, PPTElite Screens Yard Master 2, 120-inch Outdoor Indoor Projector Screen 16:9, Fast Easy Snap On Set-up Freestanding Portable Movie Foldable Front Projection | US Based Company 2-YEAR WARRANTY, OMS120H2
Some people display the movie image from a portable movie projector directly on the side of an RV, others string up sheets using bungee cords. But, the best viewing happens if you use a Portable Outdoor Movie Screen that sets up and packs away easily.
This is not one of those “must have” glamping products but is one of those “really nice to have” glam camping gadgets!
34. Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Ahhhhhhhhhhh, music … it is one of the biggest influences on setting a tone for any environment … and that includes glam camping!
Using a bluetooth speaker let’s you take the music with you throughout your glamping experience. I recommend having a variety of music so you can set any mood you desire as you relax during your trip.
I like listening to spa music when soaking my feet for my DIY pedicure and listening to smooth jazz for afternoon happy hour.
In other words, a wide range of music and a good sound system are at the top of my DIY glamping equipment list.
35. Glamping Queen Travel Journal
Travel journals are awesome activity accessories for glamping trips because rest, relaxation and reflection usually result in a few “ah-ha moments” … some can actually be life-changing in a positive way!
This Glamping Queen Travel Journal includes lined pages and writing prompts for journaling … plus, blank pages for doodling, photos and mementos. It makes a really fun glamping gift to be given before the adventure begins!
Glamping Furniture Accessories
Comfy, cute, stylish and colorful is the name of the game when it comes to glam camping furniture. It also needs to pack easily because you are not going to rent a U-Haul or hire moving men just to help you get set up on your DIY glamping trip! Consider the ease of loading your gear before you plan your trip. Here are a few ideas…
36. Ultralight Backpack Cooler Chair
Hiking is a normal camping entertainment activity but when it comes to hiking on glamping trips … you have to turn up the volume on the pretty and comfort factors!
This Ultralight Backpack Cooler Chair is the perfect glamping gift for women who are doing DIY glam camping or those going to a glamping resort … in either case, stylish hiking is in order!
This backpack cooler chair has a sassy 3-in-1 design … it’s a lightweight backpack … a mini stool chair … and a built-in cooler bag for drinks and snacks!
37. Portable Bamboo Wine Table
Some glamping gifts are so cool, you’ll want to use them at home after the glamping adventure is over!
This portable wine table is one of the most unique glamping furniture accessories you will ever find … it is an awesome little table to hold wine, cheese and snacks … anywhere you can take a rest and enjoy the activities of the day.
It lays flat for transportation, has handles making it easy to carry to your picnic spot and then you just screw the stem into the pedestal and then push it into ground … that’s it … you’re picnicking!
It is the perfect gadget to have while playing lawn games like bocce ball.
38. Fun Portable Chair
Some people go crazy with big, plush glamping furniture when they are glam camping in a semi-permanent location … but, if you are creating your own DIY glamping kit for temporary trips … I recommend you limit your load when it comes to weight and space requirements for transporting your glamping gear.
Having a fun fun portable chair that is comfy, easy to pack and cute is important. Choose a color that fits your style and adorn it with a fun throw pillow.
39. Airbed Cot
Like I said earlier, you can glamp in a tent or RV. If you are in a tent with a sleeping bag, getting off the ground and creating a comfortable sleeping atmosphere is huge when glamping.
You can add pretty sheets, pillows and blankets but you should start with a solid base like an Airbed Cot.
40. Portable Folding Rocking Chair
The gentle sway of a rocking chair is the ultimate in relaxation! Finding a flat surface for a traditional rocking chair is not always easy on glamping trips … and … THAT is why this Portable Folding Rocking Chair is so cool!
The “feet” of the chair are not rounded like they are with ordinary rocking chairs … this chair stays steady on uneven surfaces and the rocking action is achieved by a spring! It conveniently folds for transportation and storage which is what you need when DIY glamping. This awesome rocker makes the perfect glamping gift!
I don’t know about you but when I’m relaxing on glamping trips, I want my friends and family to give me a little space. That is no problem when I’m kicking back in my I’m Unplugging Hammock which is THE COOLEST HAMMOCK EVER! I love having my magazines, glasses and drinks easily within reach after I wake up from my mid-day nap! This thing folds up into itself for easy carrying too! This hammock makes a super fun gift for anyone who likes to relax while camping, we have tons of other ideas for camping gifts that are perfect for men, women, kids and couples too!
41. Glamping Tent
Yes, you can really go over-the-top when it comes to tent glamping ideas! Check this one out… Creating a DIY glamping adventure in a normal tent is totally doable but if you want to take it to the next level, you’ll want to use a glamping tent.

Clothing And Bags Glamping Accessories
Adorable bags and clothes are an absolute must when glamping! Add glamping-themed tees, bags and pajamas to your DIY glam camping trips. Here are a few ideas…

Lacing-up your hiking boots for a stroll in nature and don’t feel like doing your hair? No problem, just cover it up with a fun hat!

I have several favorite unique gift ideas created by ETSY artists. These hand-crafted sweet treats are custom designed cookies available in regular sugar, chocolate sugar, red velvet, Mathca green tea, Ginger Spice, or shortbread flavors.
