If they like heading out in the colder months you can help them stay toasty with the Hot Hands Hand Warmers. I must admit, I love these and for something that is fairly simple, they let off an incredible amount of heat.

BioLite CampStove 2
The BioLite CampStove 2 is flat out amazing, nothing even comes close in my opinion. It is not just another stove, it is an electricity generating wood stove.
This is a portable camping stove that cooks meals and boils water in minutes while charging your devices at the same time, using nothing but the sticks and twigs found around your campsite so there’s no need to carry additional fuel.
The CampStove’s 2 latest upgrade features 50% more power, an integrated battery and an updated LED dashboard so you can control fan speeds and get real time feedback on fire strength and battery level.
The internal fan creates virtually smokeless flames (95% less smoke) compared to a regular wood fire so you’re cooking faster with cleaner air.
Portable Solar Charger
During our own search to find the best portable solar chargers of 2018, the Anker 21W came out on top. This type of solar charger is one of the fastest ones available in the stores. Exclusive to Anker, PowerIQ discovers and replicates your device’s original charging protocol to provide its fastest possible charging speed up to 2.4 amp per USB port or 3 amps overall.
It couldn’t get any simpler to use, just spread out the solar panels or attach to your rucksack, plug your devices in and you’re away.
Thanks to its Industrial-strength PET plastic faced solar panels that are sewn into high-wear polyester canvas, it ensures that it’s able to withstand the trials of your outdoor adventures, making it a perfect fit with your survival kit.
When in the wilderness, the ability to make a fire is of the utmost importance. Whether your friend needs a bit of extra warmth or simply a bit of scene-setting for a scary story they’re telling before the campsite goes to bed, a fire starter is always going to be of use.
