Even though the holiday season is going to look very different for a lot of people this year, it’s no less a super busy time. There’s always so much to organise and plenty of end-of-year tasks that need ticking off. Soon though, we’ll all be able to wrap up what has been a hectic, unpredictable and challenging year. None of us will forget 2020!
If you’re looking for suggestions on how to treat your outdoorsy friends and family this holiday season or put a smile on the dial of someone who’s been doing it extra tough, then we’ve put our heads together to come up with a bunch of present ideas. So check them out below and we’ll keep it up-to-date as stock sells so keep popping back for more.

Under $50 – AOS Drawer bag
Know someone whose vehicle interior could use some serious organisation and tidying? The AOS Drawer Bag Small is the easy choice for keeping important items accessible.
Made in Australia from 14oz heavy duty Ripstop waterproof polycotton canvas, with a clear PVC lid so you can see what’s inside and a heavy-duty zippered lockable opening around the top.
The velcro divider allows you to configure your storage however you like and it’s topped off with handles on each end so that it’s easy to grab out of your drawers.

Under $100 – Bushranger Bin
Hear us out…giving a bin as a gift might be a bit unconventional but, a Bushranger 4WD Wheelie Bin is a lifesaver for keeping the interior of a beloved 4WD clean, tidy and stink-free until a spot for responsible disposal can be found.
Made from hardwearing reinforced PVC, with a moveable divider inside, UV tested to hold up to the harsh Aussie sun, a flap to prevent dust getting in and vented eyelets for draining any liquids – it’s just a fantastic bit of kit, and a great practical present too.

Ozpig Big Pig Cooker & Heater
You’ll wish you kept this baby for yourself when gifting the Big Pig Cooker & Heater. It’s perfect for use at home in the backyard or on the deck, so your recipient doesn’t even have to be a camping enthusiast! The Big Pig provides warmth and the ability to cook up a delicious meal, and the dual-zone cooking area means you can have two dishes going at once. There is also the option to take advantage of the radiant heat by using the side plates for making other dishes.
Constructed from heavy-duty steel, this unit has a huge open front door to warm you up when you’re sitting outside. It can also be used as a stove with an open stop design that allows you to remove the stovetop and cook directly over the fire to infuse those fantastic wood smoke flavours.

myCOOLMAN Fridge Freezers
The adventure-ready range of fridge/freezers from myCOOLMAN is fairly new to us this year, but they are already generating a lot of buzz online.
With sizes ranging from 30 – 105L, an easy to read digital display, 12/24V DC compressor with battery protection, a 3000 mA USB port for charging your phone, a Bluetooth app for a wireless connection, and a durable steel body – this range will keep your camping supplies cold or frozen on your adventures.
But, what makes the myCOOLMAN range stand out from the other units on the market is that they can be run unplugged using the separately available magnetic 15-amp lithium-ion power pack. This mounts magnetically to the compatible fridge, so you can travel without relying on a bulky power source.
