December has arrived and many have gotten in the Christmas spirit by shopping for loved ones. When shopping for the RV enthusiast in your life, it is important to remember that the motorhome lifestyle involves different needs and interests. We have compiled a helpful list of gift ideas, both practical and fun, to improve motorhome life.
Outdoor and Tools:
Sometimes a practical gift can be the best gift, especially if it’s something you don’t want to drop too much money on. Keep in mind that your RVer will likely already have all of the necessities, but there are tools and other supplies that can make for fun additions. Here are some useful gift ideas:
This gift is both practical and money-saving! Your loved one will be joyous when they realize they don’t have to pay for batteries. This item is also great for unfortunate powerless situations and can be powered by a few simple cranks.
Tent Storage System
The “Tidy Tent” is an excellent add on, especially for RVers who have a few extra toys. The tent can shield bicycles, grills, and any other large items from the elements.
If you haven’t experienced the extreme comfort that is an outdoor recliner, you haven’t fully experienced the outdoors. These zero-gravity chairs are both thoughtful and guaranteed to be used frequently!

**A few other outdoor gift ideas include: portable grill, RV leveling blocks, and solar powered products.
Sometimes, it’s fun to have a few toys, especially on the road. A few gifts to keep your favorite RVer entertained:
Streaming Media Player
If you know that your gift recipient has a television and wifi, a streaming media player will advance motorhome entertainment tremendously. The device plugs into your TV and connects to your network, providing options for various channels, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video (with subscriptions). Popular brands to choose from include Roku, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast.
A DVD is always a good go-to gift, and even better when it involves RVing! A few RV related movies and series: Christmas Vacation, RV (2006), Paul, We’re the Millers, and Breaking Bad.
Travel is always important to document, so why not give the gift of memories? A unique way to capture motorhome travel is with an instant-film camera. The Fujifilm Mini is small and compact and the film is quite affordable.
Sometimes, it is fun to present an unexpected, out-of-the-ordinary gift. Here are some gifts on the more thoughtful side:
Family Motor Coach Association: Amazing member benefits, including FMCAssist Travel Assistance and Medical Evaluation, access to great RV insurance rates, discounts at various businesses, and access to popular rallies.
Escapees RV Club: This club gives RVers access to important discounts, Escapees Mail Service, and the SmartWeigh program.
National Parks Pass: At the affordable price of $80, the annual pass covers entrance fees at national parks and wildlife refuges.
Etsy is a great website to utilize for personalized gifts, and a sign will make your RVer feel right at home.
