Christmas gifts for the caravanner

Christmas gifts for the caravanner – main image

I am presenting you as many as 30 ideas on what to buy for Christmas for people who are crazy about caravanning and camping, but also for those who like hiking and simply enjoy being outdoors.

We have and have been using most of the products on this list for several years, so I wholeheartedly recommend them. Some of these are on MY list for Santa. Who knows, maybe he reads it too :)

Tourist grill


Once you buy a Cadac grill , you will never buy another one. Great for transport, takes up little space and is light. It is also easy to assemble. We like to cook outside, and it's often too warm in the camper to do that. Some people are additionally bothered by the smell of cooked food in the car. You can cook on this grill like on a normal gas stove, and the food tastes even better than on a traditional charcoal garden grill . The advantage of having a gas grill is that you can cook on it at virtually every campsite, because most campsites abroad have bans on lighting charcoal grills.



Taking a nap outdoors at the campsite is best in a hammock, and it can be even better in this two-person hammock! This model has a load capacity of up to 180 kg and is very light.

Camping flashlight


A very universal camping flashlight that can be "sticked" to the car with a magnet or hung somewhere with a hook. In addition, it can charge e.g. a phone via USB.

Hand-held flashlight


We have been using this flashlight for a short time and decided to keep it in the car at all times. The flashlight comes with a special holder to which you can connect the charging cable, so you always have a charged flashlight at hand! In addition, charging is inductive, so you don't have to unplug and reconnect any cables every time you take the flashlight out of the car and put it back in.

Very nice stepless focusing function, warranty up to 7 years. Lighting duration up to 40 hours. Power 1000lm.



Ultra-light headlamp with a very strong light beam. It has as much as 600lm with a light range of 150 m. At this highest power it can work for up to 10 hours! It also has a small red light on the back, which allows us to see our position even more precisely. It will certainly appeal to those who like to climb somewhere high and far when camping.

A headlamp for the whole family


This headlamp gives such strong light that if we are walking in a group, it will easily illuminate the path for the entire team or family. It produces light with a power of 2000 lm and has a range of 300 m, and its battery provides up to 20 hours of continuous operation in the energy saving mode and 4 hours if we use it in the BOOST mode.

Camping chair


We've had Westfield folding chairs since 2015 and they still look like new. No wonder the manufacturer gives a 5-year warranty on these chairs, because they are truly indestructible. You know how much we use them, and what's more, we fold them and put them in the car or trailer almost every day. They undergo a unique durability test with us.

In addition, they are so comfortable that we always take them with us when we go to friends' barbecues, for example, because we know that our shoes are the most comfortable. Additionally, we have footrests for them, and in this solution you can even take a comfortable nap on these chairs.

Insulating mat for the windshield


If you want to give a gift to someone who drives a campervan like we do, insulating mats are a great idea. They insulate very well and the car doesn't really heat up that much in the summer. In winter, it's also nice to have such a mat on the rear window if someone sleeps on the fold-out couch downstairs.

Fluid for tourist toilets


If you like giving practical gifts, this is something for you. When buying toilet chemicals, remember to choose products of good and well-known brands. Thanks to this, you will be sure that the camper will not smell like TOI TOI.

Tourist toilet


A portable toilet is something that will work well for users of campervans, which most often do not have a toilet with a chemical cassette. Additionally, if children travel in such a campervan, I guarantee that it will be used often. Such a toilet is like a large chamber pot with a closed tank and the ability to drain water.

Tourist tableware


Melamine dishes are, above all, light, and all caravanners look at the weight with horror when packing. If someone you want to give to doesn't have them yet, they will definitely be happy with the gift. If you are not sure whether the person has plastic tableware, you can always buy melamine wine glasses or melamine beer mugs .

Thermal mug

Thermal mugs will be useful for everyone, even a mother on maternity leave walking around the block. I have been using only Contigo for several years. They stay hot or cold for a long time. Interestingly, I mainly pour water into them, because it doesn't change the taste like in plastic bottles, and I try to drink tap water, so a reusable bottle is essential for me.

Mugs with print


Once the best mug for camping , now an inseparable element of Instagram photos. If for some reason you do not want to use reusable plastic cups or even plates, you can find all enamel tableware at Emalco.

Recoilless hammer


We always have a rubber hammer in the car. It is useful for attaching storm straps to awnings or even pegs.



A handmade crochet winter hat, but above all   with a camping theme!

If you prefer woolen hats , I recommend Piumo. This is a company from our hometown, and they were making hats before I was even born.


This is probably the most popular choice of Christmas gift, at least in our family. We always buy colorful socks . When no one got socks under the Christmas tree, there were tears ;)

If you want to give a gift to someone whose feet get cold, be sure to choose woolen ones.

Down jacket


Starting this year, our entire family has down jackets from Pajak. They are very light and incredibly warm. We wear them all year round because winter jackets can easily be worn over down jackets.

In addition to great insulation, jackets have an advantage over other outerwear in that they can be rolled into really tiny balls. They take up extremely little space for something so warm.

After purchasing a down jacket, read the instructions for use or read this article immediately. How to clean a down jacket and sleeping bag?

Sweaters are another gift hit in our family. Recently, I have been paying a lot of attention to the composition of the things we buy. I prefer to buy more expensive clothes that will last longer, and such clothes are made by the Polish company Paterns. Their offer includes women's sweaters , men's sweaters , sweatshirts, T-shirts and children's clothes

Travel books


Probably everyone who drives a van or a camper knows Ola and Karol from busemprześ Their books can be a fantastic Christmas gift idea. This year they also released a calendar with their beautiful photos, but I think it was only available for pre-order.

Books for kids


While we're on the subject of books, our book couldn't be missing here. Unfortunately, we no longer ship it, but it can be purchased in many bookstores in Poland.

You can buy it here: Children's book "Camping like a fairy tale"

Sun visor for awnings


We have a similar one and it is great as an additional source of shade on the plot. It's nice that you can roll it up and hang it under the awning. It also provides some protection against driving rain, but it is not rainproof because it is made of mesh. Which, in turn, does not inhibit the air flow under the awning in the summer.


Pliers, knife, scissors, corkscrew, screwdrivers... you could spend all day listing what else can be found in a Leatherman multitool. It is something that is always in our car and is used very often.

You can buy it here: Multitool Leatherman

Foldable bowl


You know that in a camper, every centimeter is worth its weight in gold, so if you can fold something for transport, it must be good! And this bowl can also be used as a water tank.

Tourist table

We like to carry a large table with us. With several people on a small tourist table it may be tight. That's why we chose a foldable tourist table. I won't recommend the one we have, because I don't like the fact that it gets dirty very easily, it shows a lot of dirt and is difficult to remove, so I'm pasting a link to a similar one.

Sleeping bag


In addition to down jackets from Pajak, each of us also has our own down sleeping bag. We have already written about them, e.g. here: How to choose the right sleeping bag? These are the best sleeping bags on the market, and interestingly, we have had sleeping bags from Pajak since we were children, because it is a company from our hometown and even then (20 years ago) they produced the best things.

You can buy it here: Sleeping bag

Jewelry and cosmetics set


One thing is certain: every woman will probably be happy to have jewelry or cosmetics under the Christmas tree. If they are also packaged like these benefit cosmetics , they will certainly appeal to every caravanning enthusiast.

You can then keep gingerbread cookies in the box, or the keys to the camper ;)


Beautiful and delicate - perfect for any occasion.

Tourist kettle


I also found such a beautiful gas kettle. It is very light and nice. Not every caravanner will want to take it with them on a trip, because it takes up extra space, and you can always boil water for tea in a pot, but I really like it and I think it was perfect as a gift.

Tourist refrigerator


At the very end of the list is a portable refrigerator , but in my opinion it is one of the best gifts you can give to someone, or even to yourself. It may be expensive, but the quality is worth every penny. We have written about these refrigerators many times, e.g. here: Dometic CFX 100W compressor refrigerator – CampRest test
