If you're crazy like me and decided to take an intensive physics course over the summer, maybe your plan to escape for a fun camping weekend has been nixed. But even though I traded tents and campfires for geometric optics and atomic physics, I still believe I can, at the very least, bring the essence of camping into my home — even if it is just me sipping coffee at 11:00 at night out of my Stanley thermos while I bask in the glow of my LED screen. Seriously, though, I love each and every one of these items, and I kind of think camping out at home sounds amazing! — Camilla from Champagne Bubbles
Merino Throw, MacGill Tartan - $118
I kind of love how the colors in this throw can take you from camping to Christmas!
Canvas Log Basket - $120
I don't even have a fireplace, but I still want a basket for firewood in my house. Is that so wrong?
A Tepee to Call Your Own, Orange Stripe - $159
I spent a good portion of my youth building blanket forts and "camping out" indoors. If I had kids, I'd love to get them a tepee like this one to really enhance the experience.
Natural Agate Nightlight - $35
Instead of sleeping under the light of the moon and stars, I can sleep next to the glow of an agate nightlight. I think this should be the standard for nightlights.
Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Steel Cups - $32
These enamel steel cups boast that they are the best on the market. And I have to say, they just beg to be filled with hot cocoa.
Metal First Aid Kit, Small - $48
Everybody needs a first aid kit when camping. And one this stylish needs to be displayed somewhere in my house.
Stanley Thermoses - $19
Stanley thermoses are simply the best. And are you thinking what I'm thinking? Put coffee in one of the big thermoses and Bailey's in the flask. Then mix. Happy camping!
Campfire Cooker - GBP 93.50
This is the real deal: an outdoor campfire cooker. I imagine everything would just taste better using this setup.
Sarpaneva Cast Iron Pot, 3 Quart - $295
There is nothing like cooking in cast iron; I am a firm believer in that fact. And the removable oak handle on this sturdy pot makes me think it might be the best piece of cookware ever made.
Hand-carved Barn Owl - $98
What's a campout without an owl nearby? This little guy is too cute.
Cast Iron Bacon Press - $16.99
I don't eat bacon, but if I did, I'd use this cast iron bacon press to cook some while camping. That's for sure.
Takenaka Bento Boxes - $39
I think bento boxes would be perfect for hiking, road trips, camping, school lunches and so much more. These are kind of a must-have for me.
54-quart Green Steel Belted Cooler - $119.99
I'm not into plastic coolers or anything that doesn't feel really solid. That's why I need this authentic steel cooler for all of my camping beverages.
Glacier Park Travel Mug - $28
I spend a lot of time in the car driving to and from class and lab, so I kind of love the idea of taking a piece of camp with me everywhere I go. I love this Pendleton travel mug.
Elk and Doe Salt and Pepper Shakers - $78
Elk and doe salt and pepper shakers will spice up campfire (or cooktop) feasts.
American Bison Art - $330
I may not have the great outdoors around me, but I can bring some wildlife to the party with cool bison art. After watching the Discovery Channel show North America, I became obsessed with bison.
XL Brazilian Fabric Hammock with Fringe - $99.99
Rest and relaxation are of the utmost priorities for my camp-at-home experience. Naturally, a gorgeous hammock is essential.
Black Metal Lanterns - $12
I'd love to scatter these lanterns around my house and light candles inside them.
