It’s that time again —’tis the season to shop for that perfect holiday gift for the RVer in your life. You could just hope that the jolly old elf in the red suit stops by with the ideal present, or you could do a little research on your own.
If the latter strategy is your preference, we’re making it easier on you by checking out the latest goodies and gadgets that might be what RVers and outdoor enthusiasts put on their wish list!
Do you have someone on your gift list who is into an earth-friendly lifestyle but still wants something unique for the table? Start with this natural pine two-tier tea box from Handrong, featuring retro metal buckles and drawer handles. The wire mesh lid provides full visibility of the tea bag assortment, while the drawer below can hold tea balls or tea strainers. The box can also be used to store other items as well, from sugar packets and honey spoons to office supplies and jewelry.
Another gift option is the Foodle wheat straw dinnerware set. Made of eco-friendly natural wheat straw fiber and food grade PP (polypropylene), the set is 100% BPA free, non-toxic and odorless, as well as microwave and dishwasher safe. Combine it with Handrong’s premium torched pine wood silverware caddy with eight compartments — perfect for flatware, straws, napkins, condiments, and more.
Finally, even the cleanest camper can get a little stale-smelling. But artificial room sprays can be a little overpowering in a small space. A better option is an all-natural air purifier like these from House Edition. Made of activated bamboo charcoal packed in gray-green cotton linen bags, these air fresheners will last forever. Just expose the bags to direct UV sun rays for two hours, and the charcoal’s filtering capabilities will be rejuvenated and ready for another month of sir purifying power.
Kitchen & Home
When it comes to campers, it’s all about compact storage and multi-function. Marry the two, and you’ve got a winning combination. And the best example is Nostalgia’s 3-in-1 family-size electric breakfast station in a retro aqua color. The top features a non-stick diecast grill/griddle, while below is a four-cup coffeemaker with a carafe and a four-slice toaster oven.
If your RV buddy is a waffle lover, then the Dash Express 8-inch waffle maker, also in retro aqua, is a must-have. It can also be used for hashbrowns or paninis as well as other batter-based foods, and the nonstick surface makes cleanup a breeze.
Just because your camping buddies are boondockers doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate a touch of class when they dine, and these nesting bowls will add just that. Take your pick from the Lenox’s line of Luna porcelain nesting dinnerware, available in various sizes and colors, including a holiday design. And for beverages, forget the styrofoam or paper cups and go for something a little fancier such as beverage and wine glasses made of stainless steel or shatterproof plastic.
Whether boondocking or at a campground, outdoor cooking is a big part of the fun. And BioLite’s CampStove 2+ Complete Cook Kit is a dual-purpose appliance with accessories, including a lightweight portable grill, kettle pot, and coffee press. The Camp Stove packs down to the size of a 32-oz wide-mouth water bottle and can be stored in the kettle pot to save space. Not only does it provide smokeless flames for cooking using pellets, sticks, and wood scraps, but the CampStove can also charge phones, lights, and more with 3 watts of power.
Once you’re done using the CampStove to cook, what could be better to serve it on than BPA-free heavyweight melamine dinnerware? Camp Casual (CC-001) 12-piece dish set, packed in a reusable box with a handle, features four different camper motifs in retro colors.
Finally, just in case water is in short supply wherever your outdoor enthusiasts are traveling, Grayl’s Water Bottle is a must-have. It removes 99.9% of viruses, 99.9999% of bacteria, and 99.9% of protozoan cysts, purifying 16.9 oz (500ml) of water in 10 seconds.
Tools & Technology
Ah, the weather — when it’s great, traveling is wonderful. But when it’s not, well, life on the road can be challenging to say the least. That makes it imperative that RVers know what Mother Nature is sending their way, and for that, they can rely on Newentor Weather Station with customizable alerts. The Wireless Color Forecast Station calculates the weather forecast for the next 12 to 24 hours, with 7 to 10 days of calibration to ensure an accurate personal forecast for the location.
Safety is critical when camping or RVing, and the SE 10-1/2″ metal tent pegs with glow-in-the-dark stoppers are a great start in that direction. The large heavy-duty PVC stopper head and sharp square-cut pointed tip make it easy to drive the tent peg into hard and rocky ground, while the lighted feature means no more tripping or stubbing toes at night.
Speaking of lights, the BioLite AlpenGlow 500 Lantern provides 360° of lighting at up to 500 lumens, with a range of modes from cool and warm lights, full candle flicker, color light, color party, fireworks, and more.
For those times when items or locations are just a tad out of reach, there are two must-haves: the Topfun non-slip two-step folding step stool with a 300-pound capacity and OxGord’s telescopic extension ladder. One or both will extend their range without stretching or straining!
nuCamp launched its branded apparel store earlier this year, featuring sweatshirts, hats, jackets, and more. Whether you’re looking for a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes or a sweatshirt to stay warm around the campfire, nuCamp apparel makes a perfect gift for the nuCamp owner in your life.
Just for Fun
From practical to fun — here are some gifts that your camper friends will love. Light up the campsite with Camco’s Retro Travel Trailer String Lights. Eight feet of illuminated campers will set the mood at any campsite!
Give your RVers a way to track all the places they’ve been with Hentai’s RV United States Travel Sticker & Visited Map. If national parks are their destinations of choice, America’s National Parks’ National Parks Puzzles or the Okuna Outpost’s US National Parks Scratch Off Poster are great gift ideas.
And don’t overlook gift passes and memberships, including these: America the Beautiful’s The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass Series, Harvest Hosts Membership, or Passport America.
Receiving any of these gifts will make your RVer a happy camper indeed.
