You no longer have to choose between your love for the outdoors and your love of ... well, staying in hotels. Glamping — or glamorous camping — is the perfect middle ground. Not quite roughing it, but still taking advantage of the glories of nature. However, creating the perfect, luxurious-but-authentic getaway requires careful curation. Turn your rustic adventure into an unforgettably chic experience with these posh products perfect for the outdoors.

7. Best Made Co. The Small Metal First Aid Kit, $58

Heading out into the woods increases your risk of minor injuries — more tree branches to poke you, more dirt to slip on, more rocks to scrape your knee. Be prepared with this first aid kit, which comes in a classic metal container and contains bandages, antibiotic ointment, burn cream, and more.
