The holidays are just around the corner, and that means it’s time to embark on the annual search for the perfect present. But finding gifts for RV owners adds a new level of complexity to the hunt.
After all, RVers tend to appreciate a certain type of gift — one that’s practical, saves space and make RV life better. The last thing RV owners need are items that take up space or create clutter.
But don’t worry: When it’s time to find that ideal present for the avid RV owner or camper in your life, we’ve got you covered! Read on to discover gift ideas for RVers.
RVer Gifts Under $25
Keep track of travels in style with this lovely logbook. Designed specifically for RVers, this little book lets campers write down details about each place they visit, such as campground name and costs, state of the bathrooms, road conditions, booking notes, and more. The index includes Canadian Provinces and Territories.
Collapsible Measuring Cups and Spoons
As any RVer knows, kitchen space is at a premium. That’s where these collapsible measuring tools really come in handy. Crafted from food grade silicone, the cups and spoons nest into themselves and collapse, taking up less space in drawers or cupboards. They work for liquid or dry ingredient measurements, and are dishwasher safe.
Whether on the road or in the campground, this handy coaster keeps drinks from spilling. This one-size-fits-all drink holder wraps over the arm of a chair or sofa, providing a sturdy base. It can also be laid flat, stuck between couch cushions, or draped over a back rest. It’s lightweight, ergonomic and eliminate the need for a side table.
Add a festive touch to any campground with cute string lights, shaped like campers. Hang them from an camper awning, a nearby tree or string them inside; they’re approved for outdoor or indoor use. Each eight-foot strand is festooned with retro mini campers for a fun look.
Gift for RVers $25 to $50
Let’s face it: No one should ever go RVing without a vacuum. Spills are inevitable, and a handheld vacuum makes it simple to clean up. This portable model includes a UV light and a washable filter. It’s a must-have to clean up coffee, pet hair, sand, dust and all the other debris that’s a part of camping life.
The ultimate in “set it and forget it,” slow cookers make it easy to eat homemade meals, even in the campground. This portable appliance plugs into multiple types of outlets and slowly simmers meals all day long.
Anyone who’s ever been camping can tell you how handy it is to have a durable mat on hand. This versatile mat is perfect for wiping dirty doggie feet before entering the RV, throwing down on the ground for a picnic lunch, or even for use as a tent pad. Best of all, it’s mildew and mold resistant, easy to clean, and folds down for storage.
The last thing any RVer wants to deal with is wet, heavy, drippy towels. Eliminate the problem altogether with the NanoDry towel. This full-size towel is made from soft nanofibre material that absorbs almost three times its weight in water, and dries extra fast. It comes with a waterproof silicone carrying case and a handy clip.
RVer Gifts Over $50
There’s nothing quite like relaxing around the fire when camping. But thanks to droughts and wildfire danger, many campgrounds are limiting the use of open-flame fires. Plus, a propane fire ring is a more eco-friendly way for campers to safely enjoy the warmth and flickering lights of a campfire without creating smoke.
Fold-up bicycles take up a lot less space than their traditional counterparts. Designed to accommodate a variety of riders, these handy bikes are simple to store, carry and take on RV adventures, with no additional bike rack needed. Some even offer electric motors, making it easy to zip around the campground.
If you know RVers who like to stray from the beaten path, a cell signal booster could be (literally) a lifesaver. These handy devices can help RVers extend cell service, as well as enjoy fewer dropped calls and better internet access. It’s a great tool in case of emergencies, as well.
