The best way to make good here is to let function trump form—and there's certainly nothing sleek or sexy about Kelty's Good Nite Air Bed ($60; kelty.com). But this queen-size, five-inch-thick behemoth is approximately 100 times comfier than your loved one's old backpacking pad. Plus its foot pump inflates it in just a few minutes, giving you more time to relax at the campsite or, if you've got kids (or just a sweet tooth), make ice cream with Camper's Dream Play and Freeze Mega Ice Cream Maker ($40; icecreamrevolution.com). Just put ice and rock salt in one end of this basketball-size plastic contraption, ice-cream ingredients in the other, and then kick and roll it around. Thirty minutes later, the kids are tired, you've got a quart of homemade mint chocolate chip, and you're the hero.
