We’re just a week away from Black Friday and the “official” start of the holiday shopping season (though, chances are you’ve probably already begun shopping, right?!).
As you try to find the perfect gift for the overlanding or off-roading on your list, you might be stumped as to what to get them. But we’re here to help!
We’ve got ten great holiday gift ideas that are sure to please even your hardest-to-shop-for friends and family. All of these gifts are under $150 too!
Gifts Under $150: Briter Products Multiposition Camera
Many campers and RVs these days come with built-in security systems with cameras that allow you to see what’s going on outside your rig while you’re inside.
But if your loved one has an older camper or RV, they might be “flying blind” without knowing what’s outside making all that racket. Is it a bear? Is it Cousin Eddie? Or did the wind just knock over the camp chair?
With the Briter Products Multiposition Camera, you can quickly and easily see what’s going on.
These cameras come in two varieties – adhesive mounted or hardware mounted – and offer a 170-degree viewing angle. The camera is equipped with a 1/3″ CMOS PC 1099 sensor, a 13.5mm lens, and can operate in temperatures from -4F to more than 158F.
Perhaps best of all, the camera is tiny – just 1.4″ x .9″ – so you can keep an eye on what’s happening outside without the cameras being easily noticed.
So, this holiday season, why not give the gift of peace of mind and added security?
KC Hilites 151 Apollo Pro 6″ 100w Driving Light System
Something that any off-roading or overlanding enthusiast always needs is good lighting for their vehicle. You simply can’t do better than KC lights!
The Apollo Pro 6″ driving light system is perfect for placing on the A-pillars of a vehicle or on the front bumper. Heck, they can even be mounted on the rear to provide drivers with additional lighting for tricky situations backing up.
You can order the lights as singles or as a pair, and you can choose between fog, spot, or spread beams.
The lights have optical glass lenses, precision polished optical reflectors, and 100-watt halogen bulbs that will give your loved one all the added lighting they need to ride trails safely.
Depending on the beam type you select, these lights will put out anywhere from 40,000 candela to 196,200 candela.
Installation is easy, too, because the lights come fully assembled and include a wiring harness for connecting them to the vehicle’s electrical. The toughest part will be deciding how many of these lights to get!
Gifts Under $150: Southwest Disk 24″ Roswell Discada
If the person you’re shopping for (or if you’re shopping for yourself) loves to cook, then a discada style cooking disk is an ideal gift idea this holiday season.
This big UFO-shaped discada is a full 24 inches across and comes with your choice of four different styles of handles – Trinity, Santa Fe, Angel Fire, or BBQ Springer.
Additionally, it comes with three removable 12″ steel legs that allow you to support it over a propane burner or a campfire, if so desired.
The discada is about 1/4″ thick and has a semi-flat bottom at about 10″ across. The disk cones up to a height of about 4″ to give you 27″ of cooking space end to end. That’s a lot of space for cooking!
The disk is thoroughly prepped, seasoned, and cleaned so it’s ready to use the moment it arrives. Just unbox it and it’s ready!
And with 42 five-star reviews, you really can’t go wrong!
J.A. Schenk Co. Extension Rod & Kettle Rod
So if the person on your shopping list also has The Schenk, you can give them a Schenk Extension Rod and Kettle Rod to expand the capabilities of The Schenk even further!
The Extension Rod measures 24″ x 0.75″ x 0.75″ and gives you two additional feet of height for even more versatility for cooking.
The Kettle Hook, meanwhile, gives you the capability of supporting or hanging a kettle, coffee pot, or even a dutch oven over the fire.
The Kettle Hook measures 18″ × 0.5″ × 0.5 in”, and like the Extension Rod is made of steel for long-lasting durability.
There’s nothing quite like a home-cooked meal when you’re overlanding, camping, or off-roading. And with The Schenk and these accessories, making home-cooked meals has never been so easy over an open fire!
Gifts Under $150: EVER ADVANCED Oversize XL Zero Gravity Recliner
After a long day of overlanding, having a comfortable place to have a seat and relax by the campfire is the ultimate luxury.
This holiday season, why not give the overlanding enthusiast on your list a luxurious zero gravity chair where they can rest their weary bones?
This XL camp chair has oversized dimensions that can accommodate people up to 6’2″ tall and 350 pounds. There’s no assembly required, and the easy folding and compact structure make it a breeze to slide into the back of the truck and to easily get out once camp is set up.
The recliner has a locking system that allows you to lock the chair down from 0-170 degrees. Just find the most comfortable position, lock it down, and you’re ready to go!
There’s a fully padded seat and a padded pillow that can be used as either a headrest or for lumbar support.
I have one of these chairs and I absolutely love it. It’s well-made, easy to use, and above all, comfortable!
Avid Power Tire Inflator Air Compressor
When off-roading, you need the capability of deflating your tires when driving on sand, but you also need to be able to reinflate them once you’re back on a more solid surface.
With the Avid Power tire inflator, you get both inflation and deflation modes. It comes with dual solid-metal motors that provide exceptional power and fast inflation, too. Though it does not work on heavy-duty truck tires, it will do the trick for everything from bicycle tires to light-duty truck tires.
The unit runs on 12V DC or 120V AC power and features preset capability, which means you simply set the desired level of inflation and it will automatically shut off when the correct pressure is reached.
It really couldn’t be any easier to inflate or deflate tires than with this little guy!
Gifts Under $150: Camp Chef Everest 2 Burner Stove
Living in California as I do, there are often fire restrictions that eliminate my ability to cook over a campfire. In those situations, I need an alternative that allows me to cook a lot of food quickly.
For that, it’s tough to beat the Camp Chef Everest 2 Burner Stove. With two 20,000 BTU burners, you can get your skillets or pots warmed up in a hurry! The matchless ignition helps with that, too.
There’s a stainless steel drip tray for making cleanup a breeze, and for making transport easier, there’s a convenient carrying handle.
This stove weighs only 12 pounds and measures 13.5″ L x 23.5″ W x 4″ H, so it’s an ideal accessory for camping and overlanding trips when space in the car or the camper are at a premium.
And since this is a Camp Chef stove, you know that it’s durably built, performs well, is easy to use, and will give you the ability to whip up some awesome food.
TOPS Knives B.O.B. Brothers of Bushcraft Knife w/Black Handle
Whether the person you’re shopping for loves to off-road, camp, overland, or all of the above, a good knife is an absolute necessity.
From cutting rope to making dinner to slicing off wood for fire starter, a good blade is an invaluable asset when you’re off the grid. And for me, TOPS Knives makes some of the best blades around.
Their Brothers of Bushcraft Knife is 9 3/4″ long and features a 4 5/8″ 1095 high carbon steel blade. The blade has a partial black traction coating and a modified Scandinavian Grind that makes it highly effective for everything from dicing onions to skinning game.
The full tang knife is hardened to 56-58 HRC and features a thumb ridge, a black linen micarta handle, and a finger guard.
You get a black molded Kydex belt sheath along with the knife, which has a built-in Ferro-rod attachment point. A 3 1/8″ firestarter and a survival whistle round out the features of this incredible knife.
For less than $150, this is one heck of a gift for overlanding and off-roading enthusiasts!
Gifts Under $150: EST Gear Survival Shovel
Just like a good knife is a must-have for an overlanding or off-roading kit, a survival shovel should most certainly be in your loved ones gear collection.
This option from EST offers 18 survival tools in one. It’s a shovel, a saw, and a camping axe. It can be used as a knife, a hunting spear, and a bottle opener as well. Use it as a fire starter, a hoe, a wire cutter, or a trowel, too! And that’s just the start!
All that functionality comes in a compact size to save space. Not only does it weigh just three pounds, but it measures just 10″ x 6″ x 2″. It’s foldable, too!
The shovel has a reinforced hardened-steel shovel head and a military-grade aluminum handle that gives it extreme durability. In fact, the shovel is made with high-quality, heat-treated solid carbon steel, so it’s virtually indestructible.
In fact, you get a lifetime replacement warranty with this shovel, so if something goes wrong, your loved one can get a replacement at zero cost. It’s truly a gift that can last a lifetime!
Southwest Disk 24″ Pecos Discada
Like the Roswell Disk listed earlier, the Pecos discada from Southwest Disk offers a 24″ wide disk for cooking a mammoth amount of food.
This disk has an easy slope to the center with a 3″ rise, so you get an enormous cooking surface for making some awesome meals while camping or overlanding.
The Pecos discada can be paired with your choices of handle: Angel Fire (1/2″ Circle), Santa Fe (Horse Shoes), BBQ Springer (Springs) or the Trinity (1/2″ Oval) handles. No matter which handle type you select, they provide you a secure means of maneuvering the disk and doing so safely.
This disk is also thoroughly prepped and cleaned, seasoned and fired, so it’s ready to roll the instant your loved one opens it!
