9 Glamping Essentials for Canada Day Long Weekend

It’s time to get your glamp on.

Cramped tents, canvas folding chairs and wine from a box? Oh, the humanity!

Here are 9 glamping essentials to ensure you enjoy summer long weekends in style:

1. Vino To Go

You can sip the good stuff from this reusable and ultra-lightweight nylon Vapur Wine Carrier and no one will be any the wiser. Easily collapsable after use and it includes a plastic pour spout—this is how we do ($15). cb2.com

2. Ready to Roam

Modern, minimalist and about as far from the traditional campfire afghan as you can get. WXA100 launched a new series of limited-edition blankets as part of the oh-so-sleek Roam collection. The exterior is waterproof ripstop nylon, the blanket is double-layer melton wool and it has a built-in hidden sling bag. Comes in this cool cream or hunter green—find them for $120. wxa100.com


3. Throw in the Towel

Although it could pass for a designer rug at some celebrity’s European beach house, the circular, fantastically fringed Majorelle from Anthropologie is all beach towel ($136). anthropologie.com

4. Helping Hammock

Not only does this Handwoven Hammock create a luxurious napping locale between two palms, but the Nicaraguan artisans who crafted it will donate a portion of its proceeds to its community project with each purchase, including scholarships, health checkups and improvements to the safety and working conditions of home workers ($581). potterybarn.com

5. Not Your Grandmother’s Camping Stool

We love the combo of rustic teak with this vibrant tropical print. The Tahiti stool from Vancouver’s Gallant & Jones is built to last outdoors, even through wetter weather, and the fabric sling can be easily swapped out for any changes in mood or pattern trends ($129). gallantandjones.com


6. Classing Up Campfire

Who says cooking outdoors is limited to meat on sticks over an open flame? Cook (or bake!) anything from caviar and crouton omelettes to apple pie al fresco with the propane-powered Campchef Portable Camping Stove & Oven ($311). williams-sonoma.com

No glamping or camping retreat is complete without a few rounds of competitive lawn bowling. Win or lose, the country-club appropriate Bocce Set will guarantee hours of fun, and the etched resin balls come with a canvas tote, score pad and pencils ($150). crateandbarrel.com


9. Portable Playlist

Whether your long weekend takes you to the beach, pool or yacht—jam out worry-free thanks to the Kate Spade Saturday Tablet Sounds Speakers that cover and protect the tablet while playing your favourite tracks through stylish built-in speakers ($85). westelm.com
