We’re coming down to the wire with the holiday shopping season…
If you still have some shopping to do and you have a budget of $50, there are all sorts of awesome gifts you can buy for the overlanding or off-roading enthusiast in your life.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite items and the most useful items you can have in your overlanding or off-roading kit.
Gifts Under $50: Camp Chef 5-Piece Chef Set
When you’re out camping or overlanding, that doesn’t mean that you have to cook primitively. Heck, I have a Camp Chef Pro60X two-burner stove that I take with me on my trips so I have a nice, big area to cook.
Of course, having the right cooking implements means having a good set of chef’s tools so you can whip up some great camping meals. The Camp Chef 5-Piece Chef Set is exactly what your favorite overlanding or off-roading enthusiast needs!
This set includes a seven-inch spatula with beveled edges, a 7-inch hardened stainless steel santoku knife, heavy-duty tongs, a flat-nosed spoon, and a nice carrying case to tote it all around in.

ECOTRIC Recovery Boards
Overlanding and off-roading can get gnarly sometimes what with mud, snow, and sand potentially causing some difficulties.
A great way to enhance a vehicle’s ability to make it through difficult driving conditions is with a good set of traction boards.
Some traction boards cost hundreds of dollars, but this option from ECOTRIC will save you some money while still providing the person on your shopping list with capable boards for escaping the muck

Gifts Under $50: Nilight TR-09 3PCS 60 Bed Light Strip
If the person you’re shopping for has a truck with a bed cover or topper on it, it can be really difficult to see what’s inside – especially when they’re camping or overlanding.
These LED strip lights from Nilight offer 6000K super bright light to illuminate the bed. They attach using peel-and-stick self-adhesive tape, so there’s no drilling or other modifications that have to be made to the bed.
The kit comes with the electrical hookups and hardware, too!

AUTMATCH 3/4″ D Ring Shackles
These 3/4-inch shackles are made of forged steel and offer a whopping 68,000-pound breaking strength with a towing capacity of up to eight tons.
The shackles each have 7/8-inch screw pins for added strength as well as rubber shackle isolators that prevent the shackles from damaging the bumper and making noise as you drive down the road.
These would be perfect for off-roading and overlanding applications for use with snatch straps or tow straps during recovery operations. The red color looks great too!
