Top 10 Christmas Gifts for RVers 2017 | Unique RV Gifts

As Christmas approaches, many of you are looking for gifts for your RVer friends, or ideas for your own wish list. Naturally, we want to help you in your search. So, we have prepared a unique list of our recommendations for the top 10 Christmas Gifts for RVers!  

We looked for Christmas gifts for RVers that would not take up a lot of space, would appeal to their sense of adventure and would be helpful in making their travel plans. We wanted unique items, some practical, others fun. We also wanted to give a range of prices, so that you would have an option for anyone on your list.

To Wander Freely’s Top Ten Christmas Gifts for RVers 


#1  It probably goes without saying, but naturally we think that our RV There Yet? The Original Planner for RVers 2018 is at the top of the list. It meets the requirement of assisting RVers in their planning while adding to the overall fun-loving, adventurous atmosphere in which the RVer thrives. It is completely unique and our favorite travel companion, outside of each other of course. It is $32.00. Click here for the planner!

#2  For those of you who like to give the gift that keeps on giving, we present you with the idea of the Annual National Park Pass.  It meets our RVers’ need to explore by providing them a full year of access to not just the National Parks, but also many of the National Historic sites and other federal recreation areas.  The pass typically covers the pass holder and other vehicle passengers (can vary at different sites, but typically just one pass is enough). It is $80, and is valid for twelve months after the purchase date. This is a great option for those planning to become RVers soon, as they probably will not have one yet – current RVers probably already have one. Click here for the pass!

#3  As a stocking stuffer/smaller item, think about an essential oil diffuser for the RV/truck. Lord knows, we do not need to add more chemicals to our body’s already toxic load.  Instead, essential oils (if you are buying good ones) actually purify the air while giving your body added benefits, such as uplifting your mood, enhancing your focus, etc. Since our RVer will be spending a lot of time on the road, a diffuser for the vehicle is a great wellness choice. It is $9.99. Click here for the diffuser!  




#4  But, what about all of that outdoor living? Well, we have the perfect table for RVers. Don’t get me wrong, I never met a picnic table I didn’t like, but after fulltime RVing for 2.5+ years, I have also seen people do some strange things with those tables…things that involve sewer lines…yikes! We have, use and love this Kamp-Rite Table, because it collapses and rolls up to fit in to a small bag to save storage space. It was about $62.00 the last time I checked. Click here for the table!  




#5  Next up, is the ONLY tech tool we use. There are certainly a lot of items out there that you can buy and try, but we have found that the most effective is the TP-Link Wireless High Gain Adapter. It boosts the WiFi signal at campgrounds, so that I can actually keep up with the website and Youtube channel. We waited almost a year before purchasing it, and it was the best purchase we made for our businesses on the road.  For under $25, it would make a great gift to show the RVer that you want them to keep in touch! Click here for the adapter!                                                     




#6  Here is one that Chris and I bought this year for Wanderer’s Rest… a RV mailbox topper! Completely unique, stylish and durable. Handmade from steel in the USA. It comes from South Dakota, home of the Badlands, Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills – we loved that state. It is $59.00. Click here for the topper!

#7  Some of you know that the most meaningful gifts are homemade. I love to give handcrafted gifts, especially when I know that they will benefit a person’s health. If you are looking for some diy gifts, try my recipes for whipped body butter or healing salve.

#8  Our very first Christmas in the RV, we were in Destin, Florida. Our RV park sat right along the Bay, and the beach was across the street. We loved spending so much time near the water, and it prompted us to splurge on our Christmas gift that year. We bought this inflatable kayak. From the Choctawhatchee Bay in Florida, to Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana, this kayak has served us well. And we even got to float around with the seals, sea lions and sea otters in Monterey Bay, CA. This was one of the best decisions we have made as RVers, as it has extended our explorations from land to water, while being easy to store. We have been using it for almost two years now, and are very happy with it. Listed at the time of this post at $277.44. Click here for the kayak!

#9  Since I tend to be a little more whimsy, I like to ask Chris for an option too. And here is what is on his Christmas list this year…a tire pressure monitoring system. It is $59.99. (Mark, from Indianapolis, I think we have you to thank for this recommendation!) 

#10  Finally, we want to make mention of the greatest gift of all. The birth of Jesus, the son of God, sent to restore our relationship with our Heavenly Father, so that we could have life everlasting. This gift is free and available to anyone who accepts it. Way better than an inflatable kayak. So, get your shopping out of the way, so you can focus on the true gift this Christmas. Amen.

We hope our recommendations for Top 10 Christmas Gifts for RVers help you to check the RVer off of your list, or aid you in making the final touches to your own Christmas list.

May your celebration of Christmas be merry and bright!

About Jen

I love travel, which led me to become a fulltime RVer. I love wellness, which I can talk about 'til the cows come home. I love being self-employed, which means I get to dabble in what interests me from essential oils to RV planners. But most importantly, I love my husband and our life together on the road!
