3. Get a wearable sleeping bag and never be cold round the campfire again.

The iGadgitz is also solar powered, completely waterproof up to five metres, and only £11.99.

5. If you're travelling under your own foot or pedal power, get a super light tent.

This one is pricey at £95.81, but you can put it up and down in less than 10 minutes. This is a three man tent, which unless you're just travelling with the clothes you have on is probably more like a two man tent.

If you're on a budget go for this two man tent at only £19.99, you wouldn't want to go round the world with it, but for a festival it would be perfect.

6. If you've got the space why not pack this massive eight person round tent.

It's £190.74, but you could probably live in it.

7. Get an inflatable bed with built in pillows and a secret storage compartment.

It's £34.12 and would be handy if you have any valuables you need to hide.

If you're looking for a lighter, or cheaper option, you can get a double self inflating camping mat for £14.99.

8. Get a down jacket that you can layer, so you'll be warm whatever the weather.

This one is pricey at £59.90, but it's very stylish. It also rolls up pretty small and comes with its own bag to put it in.

9. Have more waterproofs than you know what to do with and get nine (NINE!!!) reusable rain ponchos for £6.99.

10. Bring some battery powered fairy lights and make your tent look very Pinterest.

11. Get a waterproof speaker that has nine hours of battery life.

amazon.co.uk

It's pricey at £59.99, but it looks great and comes with its own little rubber ring so you can float it in a pool. It also has a small elastic cord attached meaning it can be hung from a tree or a backpack.

If that's a little pricey for you the Aptoyu speaker isn't waterproof, but it looks like it has better battery life and similar sound quality. It's on offer at the moment for £12.99 down form £29.99.

12. Get this super cool fleece with a wolf on it.

Best £27 you'll ever spend.
