  1. Lighting

Container Light: The lighting on this water container is brilliant. Just tie a headlamp to a large empty camping water bottle or container and it gives off just as much light as your lamp in the living room. It is enough to fill the entire tent. You need only the jug and your headlamp, which you can pick up at any store selling camping gear, and they are fairly inexpensive. It is perfect for the late-night talks, reading bedtime stories in the tent to get kiddos off to sleep, extra light for a midnight feast or as mood lighting for scary campfire stories.

  1. Storage

Tool Belt Torch: If you need to leave the tent at midnight, it’s too easy to forget where you put the torch. The last thing you want to be doing is finding your way in the dark. Especially for a late-night toilet trip with a tiny human. When it comes to storing your important things, an old tool belt is a genius camping hack. That way you know where everything is and it’s easy to be organised. Moreover, it is a reusable object that is usually just sat in the garage gathering dust in its many useful pockets. Give your tool belt a job and make family camping easier at the same time.
