Christmas Gifts Under $50
As well as what to get people for Christmas, most of us are on a budget these days, so we're all keen to get the maximum bang for our gift-giving buck.
One of the many advantages of shopping for someone who's interested in camping is you don't have to spend a fortune to find an inexpensive, yet useful, present.
If you're wondering what to buy for the outdoor enthusiast in your gift circle, Anaconda has everything you need, and a surprising range to choose from for under $50.
Whether at the beach, your van or campsite, the OzTrail getaway chair is an essential for enjoying lazy days in the warm weather while staying comfortable.
An organiser pocket makes it easy to store valuables and items like the kids' tablet devices, and a cup holder and side cooler keeps food fresh and drinks cold without having to make the trip to the refrigerator. It also comes with its own handy carry bag, so you can take your getaway chair on hikes and cycling expeditions or simply pop in the car whenever the desire for an impromptu day trip takes hold.
As well as making beach life even more relaxing, the OzTrail getaway chair is durable and versatile enough to use all-year-round for just about any outdoor activity you can think of, making it the Christmas gift that just keeps on giving.
Imagine a tropical island, blue water lapping softly at the shore, palm trees gently swaying in the breeze, and taking a well-earned nap in your very own hammock.
The beauty of the OzTrail zen hammock is you don't need the tropical island, nor do you need the palm trees and gentle breezes, to enjoy some premium R and R. There's no assembly required, and its cotton construction allows air to flow underneath and through the hammock to maximise your comfort on even on the warmest of days.
Perfect for home or your campsite, the zen hammock tucks away neatly in its own carry bag for easy storage.

A must-have accessory for camping and caravanning holidays and fishing trips is a reliable lamp. While the Dorcy 1000 lumen 4D battery lamp sneaks in just under our $50 spending limit, its versatility means it is still great value and a gift idea worth considering.
The Dorcy has four different light settings for lighting your campsite. Switch it to the lower settings to provide more relaxing ambient light while you read to the kids or enjoy a bestseller of your own. Switch it to the night setting when going to bed, so there's just enough light to avoid trips or falls when leaving the tent for a 'nature break' under the stars.
The lamp comes with a strong handle or hook, making it easy to hang for hands-free use either indoors or out.
Having the right sleeping bag can make or break a holiday in the great outdoors. The BlackWolf Longitude 150 sleeping bag is durable, lightweight and made from quality synthetic material, which means it is an excellent value-for-money gift for year-round use, convenient storage and easy maintenance.
This popular sleeping bag also features a contoured hood, anti-bite zipper guards, a draft flap and hidden chest pockets for protecting valuables overnight.
No matter what the time of the year, an insulated vacuum flask is a must-have item in your camping pack for keeping food and drinks either piping hot or ice cold.
The Thermos Stainless King Vacuum is one of the best-performing thermoses around, and it comes with a handy insulated cup to maximise room in your day pack or picnic basket. Because the flask is constructed from stainless steel, maintaining your flask in peak condition is easy and no-fuss.
Single burner butane stoves are a fantastic way of looking after your appetite without compromising on the quality of your meals when camping.
In particular, the Spinifex deluxe single butane stove is ideal for taking on hikes or overnight camping trips, or when you only need to cook for one or two people. With butane fuel, you don't have to invest in a bulky gas bottle because you have the flexibility of purchasing lightweight cartridges that come with resealable valves.
This is the kind of gift the camping enthusiast will absolutely love.
You can't go past the versatility and durability of cast iron when it comes to cookware, nor can you beat the taste of camp food, roasts and casseroles cooked in the Spinifex cast iron 9-quart (approximately 10 litre) Dutch oven.
This Spinifex oven is pre-seasoned, meaning it's ready to use and easy to clean. The cast iron deep-dish lid is perfect for slow cooking roasts and fresh fish by coals across the day, or for reheating casseroles and meals you've made at home before heading away.
