Essentials for Glamping

If you wanna go glamping, being comfortable and stylish is a must! Glamping is for the outdoor enthusiasts who like to be adventurous, but don’t want to give up luxuries while enjoying the outdoors. Arrangements  and locations are usually very unique as well. There are some great DIY glamping tips use can use to spruce up your own camp site, or you can shop the glamping accessories from World Market for lots of great finds! We’ve put together a few of our favorite essentials for glamping that you should expect when you embark on your first glamping experience.

A Comfortable Bed

The goal of glamping is to be comfortable while being outside.  One night of sleeping on the ground can cause terrible aches and pains as we get older, especially for those who suffer with back issues. To get the true experience of glamping you will want to make sure you have a real bed with luxury linens.  A queen or king size bed is most comfortable.  We like to use a bed that is off the ground, even if the attached mattress is one you can blow up at the campsite. Having a bed off the ground will keep you insulated from the dampness and cold on the ground. Also, luxurious linens are key to having a good night’s sleep. This should include high quality sheets and pillows, with a duvet that is good for all seasons.


Glamping set ups must provide fire, whether it be a bonfire or fire pit, to indulge in all the fun activities of traditional camping.  A cozy night by the fire making smores is what people typically invision when they think of camping.  For glamping, it may be a good idea to bring along a cast iron pan to smooth the edges of “roughing it”, and take your cooking to the next level.

Lovely Lighting

Candles, fairy lights, and lanterns are what make glamping romantic and dreamy. We like to decorate with whimsical battery powered lighting to provide a cozy feel which adds to the ambiance of the glamping experience. Decorative lanterns on the inside and outside provide glampers with a luxury feel.  These essential glamping items help to make the experience unforgettable.

Extra Essentials and Luxuries

The extra items are things that you don’t have to have, but make your glamping experience even better!  The extras include beautiful rugs, fluffy towels, seating, throw blankets, coffee press, small tables, ice buckets, wine glasses, and face wipes to make your stay extra comfortable.  These items are usually not packed on a normal camping trip.  That’s why glamping is great for those who prefer luxurious amenities while staying outdoors.
