For the couple that loves to get away from it all and recharge in Mother Nature’s backyard, a camping-themed registry is both practical and exciting (and the perfect complement to your camping-themed wedding). Your registry is the perfect way to express your true interests and ask for investment items (like that new tent or kayak). Since millenials are doing weddings differently, setting up a wedding registry on Amazon.com is ridiculously easy and fun.Gone are all the old-school restrictions that limit you to kitchenwares and bedding — things you might already own, if you’re already living together. Set up your registry to stock you up on your honeymoon in the Great Outdoors and your friends and family will get a kick out of picking out gifts that are a little more interesting than a set of water glasses. Scroll down to see the top 25 Amazon camping registry essentials for any nature-loving couple.
