DIY Glamping

Glamping (glamourous camping) is becoming a popular staycation choice and can now be found at many resorts and campsites. You get to experience a holiday, the closeness with nature, and all the benefits of camping, without sacrificing comfort or luxury. However, glamping can also be an expensive getaway, so we’re here to tell you how you can recreate a glamping holiday for yourself!

Cosy Bedding

The best thing about glamping is the upgrade to your sleeping arrangements. Swap out sleeping bags and roll mats for a comfy air bed and bring your duvet. Using your usual bedding will make you feel right at home, even in the wilderness. Accessorise and add extra comfort and aesthetic with throws and cushions. It’ll look more put together as well as give you some extra padding!

For added cosiness and warmth, put down a rug or a few throws on the floor. This carpeted feel will make it more homely and will make you more likely to kick off your shoes to keep the tent clean!



The key component of glamping is glamour. It’s time to accessorise your tent to give it the wow factor! Add some battery-powered or solar string lights for some ambient lighting. Fairy lights are known for making any space feel cosy!

Bring a tablecloth for a warmer feeling. Drape it over a table or even a hard-shell suitcase and you’ve upgraded your space!

It may seem a bit kitsch but consider adding some artificial flowers in a jar, and some bunting in and around the tent. A few little touches can be what turns a tent from a standard camping holiday to a cutesy glamping experience. It’s always in the accessories!

We suggest enjoying your cosy little camping experience with some board games. They’re great for injecting some excitement into your getaway, and they’re great for any weather. You can use your makeshift table from earlier to play them on!

A camping classic, a fire pit is a beautiful way to spend your evenings when camping. Roast some s’mores, grab a blanket, and enjoy the sound of nature around you alongside the crackling fire. You could also grab a bottle of wine and talk to your heart’s content. Just be sure that where you’re camping allows fire pits and that it is safe to do so!


In terms of food, most camping food entails anything that can be cooked on a BBQ. But if you're glamping, you can take extra steps to make your trip even more comfortable, such as making your favourite meals ahead and storing them in a cool box. For the ultimate luxury, depending on where you're glamping, you may even be able to order a takeaway! Be sure to have a look at our picnicware for your fabulous trip away!


We hope this has filled you with ideas on how to turn a boring camping holiday into a luxury glamping experience, using items you probably already have! For all your DIY glamping essentials, check out our selection of camping here at The Range.
