Giving gifts is a big part of our culture and not just for birthdays and Christmas. There are so many occasions that warrant a gift: from the passing of exams, to mother or father’s day, or just the times that we want to show our appreciation and say thank you to someone special.
Gift giving has a feel-good factor – it feels good to give one (and if the gift has been given some thought) then it will feel good to receive it too!
Now the tricky thing is to find something suitable, something that will be appreciated. This is where you have a head-start. If you know that the person you want to get a gift for is a campervan owner (or has a love of all the things they represent), then you are halfway there.
To give you some ideas (and to save you from buying the obligatory socks or toiletries) we’ve been on the lookout for perfect gifts for the campervan or motorhome owner.
CAMPERVAN & MOTORHOME GIFT IDEAS
Campervan gifts for him and her
Whether you are looking for a major present, or a fun or novelty gift as a stocking filler, hopefully our picks will help…
Now if you know that your campervan or motorhome owner likes a tipple – then a set like these 8 miniature 40ml bottles of gin would be sure to be well received. Packaged in their own wooden box, they’d be the perfect size to take away in a campervan.
Imagine the receiver of this gift, watching the sun go down with a barbeque sizzling in the background, and a nice glass of the gin you bought them in their hand. Sounds good doesn’t it? If you ask me, that’s a great present right there!
This portable 12V Air Compressor is just what a campervan or motorhome owner needs for peace of mind. It comes with a 3.5 metre cigarette lighter cord, PLUS an additional 3.5 metre hose extension to give that extra reach that campervans need.
It is sturdy and quiet with an easy to read digital display and an automatic shut off feature when the correct pressure has been reached. There is also a 4 piece nozzle adaptor set, two USB charging sockets to enable the charging of mobile devices, and a bright LED safety light.
It comes in its own hard plastic case and has a 12 month warranty. The Air Compressor has really great Amazon reviews and would make a brilliant gift!
This great little bean bag is ultra lightweight and is perfect for holding a tablet computer, Kindle, or iPad. It works well on any surface and any viewing angle, and has a handy pocket to hold earphones, phone, charger, or reading glasses. Easy to store, it would be great for taking away in a campervan – and very useful too.
The bean bag comes in a wide range of colours and designs to suit either sex, and all age groups. Fully washable and multi-functional, it can also be used as a book stand, camera steady, or even as a travel pillow. It is made in the UK, and won gift of the year, so has good credentials!
These HeroBeam Torches are a practical and useful present for any campervan or motorhome owner. They have a powerful side LED element which is bright enough to illuminate any night time chore or urgent repair. The torches also have a strong magnet on one end which enables the torch to be attached to any steel campervan or motorhome panels for hands-free use.
The torch can also be used as a conventional hand torch (or clipped to clothing or a belt) which makes it an ideal companion for toilet visits after dark. At 6.5 inches long x 1 inch diameter the torch slips easily into a pocket or glove box. Comes as a pack of two and they have a 3 year warranty.
This Cable Cosy is a great storage solution for electric hook up leads. Besides keeping the lead, neat, tidy and easy to store, it also comes into its own when packing away wet or muddy leads.
The Cable Cosy storage bag can accommodate hook up cables up to 26 ft long, and the bag is water-resistant and has a carrying handle, so is easy to transport too. The Cable Cosy would make an excellent, and practical present for any campervan or motorhome owner.
Fun and novelty campervan gifts
Now, if you are looking for fun and novelty gift ideas, especially for a VW Campervan fan, then look what we’ve found…
I love these VW Campervan doormats – they are so much fun! They are made from traditional coir doormat material, and measure approx 64cm x 49cm – so quite a generous size. And if you don’t fancy the orange one, they also come in blue and red!
This doormat would make an original and quirky present for any VW campervan fan. It has great Amazon reviews too.
This Airfix model is quick and simple to put together. There’s no glue and no paint to contend with – the recipient can just go ahead and build this funky little camper.
This is a great fun gift to bring out the kid in any VW campervan lover!
This great 12 piece Melamine dining set, is just what is needed in a campervan. It is bright, colourful and comes with a 16 litre cooler bag. You can also buy matching mugs and tumblers too. The reviews suggest that this set is great quality. People seem to love the fact that it is so easy to store, as everything can be packed neatly inside the cooler bag. What a lovely present for a campervan fan!
