Christmas will be here before we know it! Do you know what you’re getting that special RV enthusiast in your life? RVing is a lifestyle, so those who love adventuring with their RV will surely love a gift that makes their travels even better! Check out this awesome list of what to get the avid camper for Christmas for some awesome ideas!
A gift of a membership is the gift that keeps on giving! There are plenty of members-only clubs out there that are perfect for avid RVers! A Good Sam membership is a great idea for those who travel extensively and shop frequently, as this membership includes discounts at participating campgrounds across the country, as well as discounts at various retailers too! Likewise, Passport America offers 50% off at different RV parks across the country! For nature lovers, an America the Beautiful pass is perfect for RVers who love exploring America, and includes admission to national parks, forests, monuments, and Bureau of Land Management land!
Whether they’re for a stick-and-brick home, or for the RV, any camping enthusiast will appreciate RV-themed decorations! Mugs, ornaments, awning lights, wall art, pillows, and more, are nice reminders of the fun RV lifestyle! Create a custom, personalized campsite decoration to add a more thoughtful, one-of-a-kind touch!
Anyone who has been RVing knows how annoying it can be to have all your toiletries bouncing around the RV bathroom! A shampoo and conditioner dispenser easily solves that problem. It has large wells for each liquid and it attaches securely to bathtub/shower walls for ultra easy storage and even easier dispensing, making it a fantastic Christmas gift for RV lovers!
Although they’ve been around for a while, it’s seems like more and more people are using hammocks around campgrounds and RV parks! They’re perfect for just kicking back and relaxing, lazy day naps in the sun, and even sleeping in overnight! They’re a great mid-range-priced gift for RVers who love to lounge!
Portable Gas Grill
Although RVs these days seem to come stocked with just about anything you could imagine, your RV enthusiast may not have an exterior kitchen or outdoor grill for cooking. Get them a portable gas grill so they can get out of the RV kitchen and enjoy the scenery while they cook!
“States I’ve Visited” Map
If your RV lover likes to travel across the country, or even across the world, gift them an awesome map on which they can mark all the places they’ve been! There are a lot of different styles of these types of maps out there, from simple maps with pushpins to scratch-off maps where you can reveal each state/country as you visit! It might even inspire your traveling friends to seek out new destinations!
DIY Fire Starters
If you’re feeling creative and would like a good DIY project for your camping enthusiast, whip up a batch of homemade fire starters that will make it an absolute breeze for campers to get a roaring fire going! Just line a cupcake pan with muffin papers, fill each well with natural aromatic herbs and spices like cloves, cinnamon, lavender, pine cones, bay leaves, and whatever other scents strike your fancy! Then insert a wick, melt some beeswax, and pour into the cups! Your camping friends will love how easy they are to use and how great they smell!
Many RVs come with well-stocked kitchens, so RVers don’t have to make too many modifications to recipes, but an RV cookbook is a great idea for those with more limited RV kitchens, or for those who love experimenting with new recipes!
Wireless Weather Station
Smart phones have taken over almost every aspect of everyday life for most people, but if your RV enthusiast needs to keep an eye on the weather, a wireless weather station provides valuable information that even weather apps can’t deliver! It also doesn’t require the use of Wi-Fi or data, so it’s great for campers in areas without service!
If you have a lot of extra cash to throw around this holiday season, an RV GPS is the perfect gift for those who really love RVing! These GPS units differ from traditional GPS units as they are more geared for the total RV travel experience. Many come equipped with a vast number of campground locations, dump station locations, and fun stops to try out along the way! They also tailor to RV specifications, such as having to change routes if necessary if there are weight or height restrictions! Just imagine your RVer’s face when they open an amazing RV GPS!
