Christmas is hands down the best time to camp in Australia. The warm weather and bright sunshine makes all the campers want to hit the road and spend some time in the great outdoors. Be it with friends or family, we all love to celebrate Christmas in our own ways. Most of the time people think festivities should be limited to decorating the house and making a feast at home for the family. Well, the good news is you can take your festive spirit outdoors too.
With Gasmate’s outdoor cooking essentials and camping stoves, you can make your favourite meal for your family to relish while being in the bush. The celebration doesn’t have to be limited to cooking Christmas meals, you can also decorate your tent, exchange gifts and listen to the best Christmas carols to get you in the festive spirit.
Christmas spirit at the campgrounds
Just because you're at the campsite doesn't mean you can't celebrate Christmas. You could decorate your campsite with fairy lights, set your camping table with a festive tablecloth and pack some Santa’s hats to wear around the site. Also if you’re not jamming to Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas Is You”, are you even celebrating the festivities?
You could even pre-organise a Kris Kringle so that you’re able to exchange gifts and unwrap something small, yet meaningful, on the day.
DIY Christmas Tree
Challenge the kids to make a Christmas tree out of things that they can find around the campgrounds. Get creative, you could use sticks, leaves or recyclable materials, like newspaper or empty tissue rolls. This is the perfect activity to remind you that you don’t need expensive materials to celebrate!
Make sure you cook up the most festive meals too
Using your Gasmate Portable BBQ or Gas Camping Stove you can whip up your favourite festive dishes. All you really need is a staple meat and some salads and you’ll be set for a Christmas feast. Gasmate has a wide-range of products to help make your camp cooking seamless.
Community spirit – connect with other campers to make the celebrations merry
Expand the festivities and make your camping trip merrier by connecting with old and new friends alike. Because after all, there’s really not a better word that encapsulates Christmas spirit more than “community”. This is a great time of year to really get out of your comfort zone and invite other campers to join in on your festivities. And who knows, you both might make a new connection and memories that will last a lifetime.
