Outdoor enthusiasts can be awfully particular about the gear they use, which can make your task of buying holiday gifts all the more difficult.

That’s where this list of gifts for outdoor enthusiasts under $100 comes in…

Armed with a budget of $100, you can find all sorts of top-quality gifts that will make your loved one’s outdoor adventures more fun, functional, and safe. We’ve scoured the overlanding and off-roading community for top picks to suggest, and the results of those searches are outlined below!

GlueTread 4×4 Kit

When you’re overlanding, the last thing you want is to repair a tire (let alone a sidewall). But such things are virtually a certainty when you travel long distances, so you might as well be prepared (or prepare a loved one with a great gift!) with the ultimate tire repair kit – the GlueTread 4×4.

This made-in-the-USA kit comes with various tools and accessories that facilitate a quick sidewall repair:

  • Two 4″ x 4.5″ patches
  • Two 3” x 1.5” patches
  • One 2oz bottle of GlueTread Accelerator
  • Four bottles of GlueTread Adhesive
  • Eight applicator tips
  • 10 pieces of sandpaper

You can use these items to perform various repair and preventative maintenance tasks, like fixing sidewall damage, punctures, and slices in your rig’s tires. Additionally, you can address issues like covering cord, a bulging tube, or an internal patch.

But that’s not all! The GlueTread 4×4 Kit is ideal for covering and repairing a cracked tire to keep debris out, adding additional protection to worn areas on the tire, and preventing higher-risk areas of the tire from leaking in the future.

The kit has a bond strength of 5,000 PSI and a pressure strength of 40 PSI while offering a patch durometer of 75. The initial cure time is just 30 seconds (though an immediate cure occurs when using the GlueTread Accelerator). The full cure time is one hour.

With enough materials to patch multiple tires, this is truly the gift that keeps on giving. And on top of that, GlueTread packs their product with a risk-free guarantee – if you aren’t satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you’ll get your money back.

As an outdoor adventurer, I appreciate getting gifts that I can use over and over again while I’m exploring this big, beautiful world. GlueTread certainly falls into that category! If you’re stumped about what to get the overlanding enthusiast in your life, this kit from GlueTread will help improve their safety and give you peace of mind at the same time. What’s not to like about that?!

Gifts for Outdoor Enthusiasts Under $100 – MORRFlate Single Tire Inflator

morrflate gifts for outdoor enthusiasts under $100 Not every situation requires a big multi-tire inflation or deflation kit, and that’s where the MORRFlate Single Tire Inflator comes in handy.

But this isn’t just any tire inflator…

As you’d expect from MORRFlate, this tire inflator has unique features that make it easier to use and more functional, too. A prime example of this is the use of digital rather than analog gauges. The problem with analog causes is that they’re really only accurate in the center of their range (which can be as wide as 10-15 PSI difference in the reading).

So, MORRFlate incorporated a digital gauge that reads PSI in .1 increments from 1-150 PSI. The gauge is accurate within one percent across the entire PSI range. Nice!

Another “why didn’t I think of that” feature is that this Single Tire Inflator has a hose long enough that allows you to stand up while you’re using it. I don’t know about you, but my knees aren’t what they used to be, and kneeling or squatting next to the truck while the tire is inflated just isn’t comfortable anymore. If your loved one is in the same boat, then this inflation kit is just what the doctor ordered!

In addition to these two unique features, this kit has plenty of other amenities, including the following:

  • Backlit display
  • Bleeder valve
  • Heavy-duty casing that provides durability
  • 1/4″ industrial or 1/4″ automotive plug
  • Vinyl-dipped handle
  • 2.5-foot tire whip (or up to 4-foot whip)

Not a bad setup for well under $100, right?!

GroundGrabba Junior Kit

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

You get to your camping spot, lay out the tent, and start hammering away at the flimsy stakes that came with your tent. As you struggle to get the stakes to penetrate the ground without bending into a convoluted mess, you think to yourself, “There has to be a better tent stake out there.” 

Well, yes, there is – the GroundGrabba Junior Kit!

I’ve used GroundGrabba’s PRO I stakes for a couple of years now, and they are by far the best tent stakes I’ve ever used. Like the PRO I stakes, the 11-inch Junior Kit stakes are made of high-strength carbon steel to ensure long-term durability. These stakes also have a special zinc clear trivalent coating that protects them from corrosion. And also like the larger PRO I stakes I use, the Junior Kit stakes have a hex head that allows you to more easily drive them into the ground with a drill or a ratchet set.

This kit comes with six GroundGrabba Junior stakes and adapters called “The Fang,” which connects the GroundGrabba stakes to any number of things like your E-Z up tent, a pop-up gazebo, or a tarp. These adapters won’t slip off the GroundGrabba stake thanks to their teardrop hole slot that holds the adapter tightly to the stake.

As evidence that these aren’t your grandpa’s tent stakes, the Junior set holds up to three times the force of the hammer-in stakes that we used on our family camping trips back in the day. So, not only are these stakes stronger, but they’re also far easier and more efficient to use.

The great thing about shopping for a loved one is that you can find a diverse range of gifts, especially in the overlanding and off-roading space. What I like about products like GroundGrabba is that it’s something that you can use each and every time you go camping. This isn’t a one-and-done gift that gets thrown in a tub in the garage after a couple of uses.

Instead, when you give the GroundGrabba Junior kit, you give something highly functional and can significantly impact the ease of setting up and taking down camp. So, this holiday season, give your loved one a gift that keeps on giving. Give them the GroundGrabba Junior Kit!

Gifts for Outdoor Enthusiasts Under $100: Front Runner Camp Kitchen Utensil Set from BTR Outfitters

When you’re camping, having a quality kitchen utensil set is a must. But you also want the kitchen set to be robust with many different utensil options. It’s nice to have a kit that’s easily portable, too. Thankfully, BTR Outfitters has you covered with the Front Runner Camp Kitchen Utensil Set!

This kit has 24 pieces that range from forks and spoons to steak knives and a cutting board. As you can see above and below, the kit also includes prep knives, a bottle opener, a large spoon, and more!

From a portability standpoint, it doesn’t get much better than this kit. The tool-style roll bag ensures the utensils stay put while in transport, yet the design also makes it a quick and simple task to grab what you need while you’re preparing your meals.

Better still, the kit has loops to hang it up for even easier access. This gets the kit up and out of the way, too, preserving counter space for other items.

When rolled up, the kit is 17.32 x 5.07 x 1.97 inches (and weighs about five pounds), so it doesn’t take up much space in your vehicle or trailer – a feature that’s a must-have when space is limited to begin with!

In other words, Front Runner has thought of everything with this kit, including a great price well below the $100 threshold.

Peak Refuel Variety 6 Pack

I love to cook when I’m camping and overlanding, but sometimes I prefer to sit back, relax, and have a tasty freeze-dried meal instead.

I’ve tested a lot of freeze-dried meals over the years, including numerous Peak Refuel dishes, and by and large, they have tasted so good that I feel like I could pass them off as home-cooked meals. Not bad, right?!

Not only are meals like this easy to make, but they also have a shelf life of five years and are incredibly easy to transport. I keep a few in my Turtleback Expedition Trailer just in case I forget to bring everything I need to cook a homemade meal.

This variety pack gives you a wide variety of meal options, including the following:

  • Strawberry Granola
  • Sweet Pork and Rice
  • Biscuits and Gravy
  • Chicken Teriyaki Rice
  • Beef Pasta Marinara
  • Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Each pouch offers two servings, or, if you’re like me, you can down a whole pouch by yourself!

Whether you buy this variety pack as a gift for yourself or for someone else, you’ll enjoy high-quality meals packed with flavor, all without the fuss of cooking it yourself. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Gifts for Outdoor Enthusiasts Under $100: Front Runner Expander Camping Chair from BTR Outfitters

If you or a loved one enjoys getting way off the grid, gifts that provide comfort and functionality without taking up a lot of space are ideal. Why not combine those attributes with a place to sit while you’re at it?!

The Front Runner Expander Camping Chair is an ideal seating solution for around camp. When folded up, it’s just 18 x 17.6 x 3.3 inches, so it can easily slide into a small trailer compartment or in the back of a vehicle. Heck, it’s so small you can take several of them!

The steel frame ensures long-term durability in difficult environments, while the canvas seat and back give you proper support for a comfortable seating experience. The integrated pockets give you a ready-made spot to keep your water bottle, flashlight, snacks, or other needed accessories as you sit around the fire.

I’m a fan of giving (and getting!) gifts that are useful over and over again, and the Front Runner Expander certainly fits the bill. Buy it once for yourself or a loved one, and you’ll have a gift that will be enjoyed for years and years to come! And thanks to BTR Outfitters’ superb customer service, you’ll get all your questions answered and get the attention you deserve before, during, and after the sale!

Tembo Tusk Camp Table Shelf Kit

gifts for outdoor enthusiasts under $100 tembo tusk

One of the best things about the Tembo Tusk Camp Table is that it gives you ready-made space for preparing and eating meals. But you can make this table even more functional with a shelf that positions below the tabletop!

This 15″ x 30″x 1/4″ shelf kit is ideal for meal prep. Keep extra utensils, bowls, cutting boards, and so forth on the shelf, which frees up the tabletop for meal prep. Alternatively, you can use the tabletop for eating a meal while the shelf can act as a staging area for serving food. There’s really no end to the possibilities for its use!

The shelf is easy to attach to the Camp Table, too…

Just slide the shelf down the Camp Table’s legs, and it can either rest on the leg clamps or you can use the included rubber O-rings to keep the shelf in place. Better still, the shelf works with either the original straight legs or the adjustable legs with the Tembo Tusk Camp Table.

The shelf is made of three-ply bamboo plywood and offers excellent durability for camping adventures. As you can see above, it’s the perfect addition to the Camp Table!

Note that this gift is the shelf only; it does not include the Tembo Tusk Camp Table.
