 For some nature lovers, staying the night outdoors in remote areas and using leaves for toilet paper is an essential part of the camping experience. For others however, this part of the “experience” is not so desirable. This is why “glamping” has become so popular in recent years.

Glamping standards have made camping a far more appealing activity for those hesitant about roughing it in the outdoors. For those who love to camp, yet want to add a little bit of glamour and comfort to their set up, here are some amazing glamping additions to elevate the experience. From marshmallow skewers and canvas hammocks to a portable bar, luxury can be found in many forms in the great outdoors.

1. Twig Marshmallow Skewer

5 is definitely better than 1, especially when it comes to marshmallows and s’mores. With this elevated Twig Marshmallow Skewer, you’ll enjoy all the sugary treats you desire, without the delay of cooking them one by one. Gone are the days of having to find a twig and sharpen it up as a makeshift skewer.

2. YUNI Shower Sheets

Staying clean during your “glamping” adventure may sometimes be easier said than done. These oversized, individually-wrapped wipes from luxe skin care brand YUNI are great freshening up on the go.

3. AMIR Solar Powered String Lights

Few things say luxury more than a campsite decorated by beautiful string lights.

6. Chongfu Home Series Portable Toilet

Without doubt one of the most uncomfortable elements of camping is the toilet situation. Whether it’s a hole in the ground or public facilities that are lacking an acceptable standard of hygiene, toilets are a deterrent that keep a lot of people away from going camping altogether. Solve this problem with the Chongfu portable toilet. With its 5 gallon holding tank and powerful flushing action, you’ll be able to do your business without the dealing with compromising conditions.

7. On-the-Go Espresso Maker

If your mornings just don’t look right without espresso, it’s definitely worth adding this On-the-Go Espresso Maker to your glamping arsenal. Simply add hot water and coffee to the chamber before pressing the piston to create a delicious morning pick me up. It’s not just great for camping either, as you’ll be able to use it whenever you find yourself away from home and in need of coffee.

8. Concession Express Portable Travel Bar

Can it really be called glamping without your very own supply of delicious craft cocktails? With the Concession Express portable travel bar, you’ll have all the necessary tools you need to serve your guests whatever they desire (aside from spirits and mixers of course). Inside this sophisticated travel case are a pair of martini glasses, a 1.5 oz jigger, two speed pourers and a bottle opener. The case even includes a built-in combination lock for added security

9. Coleman Queen Airbed Folding Cot

There is nothing glamorous about waking up with a aching back after a bad night’s sleep. That’s why investing in an airbed rather than a standard sleeping bag, like this model by Coleman is a great idea. The mattress features a ComfortStrong coil construction which helps to provide you with comfort and support during the night. The tough, elevated cot can support up to 600 pounds, and the kit is also supplied with a battery-operated pump, which means you don’t have to waste your energy setting it up.

11. Inflatable Bubble Tent

Forget boring, opaque tents and try something a little more transparent. Spending a night or two inside this mid-century inspired inflatable bubble will mean you don’t miss a thing. Whether it’s the twinkling stars of the night sky or the deer who pass by during twilight, this see-through dome ensures you’ll have the most memorable of camping trips.
