Looking for a Motorhome gift for a man in your life? Whether it's a birthday, Father's Day, Christmas or anything else, these cool camper gifts are sure to go down well with Husbands, Dads, Sons, Brothers…(Ok- I'll stop listing male relations now!) After all, motorhoming men are often practical and prefer useful (or funny!) gifts which deserve a space in their camper or caravan.
So, let's find you some awesome motorhome gifts for him!
Practical Motorhome Gifts for ‘Outdoorsy Dads'
Is your Dad (Husband, Son, Brother, Grandfather… can we just agree that if I say ‘Dad', I mean all male relations or friends. Saying ‘Man' sounds rude. Anyway…)
Is your Dad outdoorsy? Does he LOVE being out in nature and uses his motorhome or campervan to head off into the wilds, where you suspect he'd happily stay if he could? Good, these motorhome gift ideas are for him.
Picture the scene. You've parked up in a beautiful location. Dad is happily outside, starting a fire for the BBQ… while at the same time providing electricity to charge phones, iPads, torches and much more!
What an amazing idea. The unit uses sticks or wood that you find at your camp stop- no need to carry extra fuel in the campervan. The fire is smokeless, it can boil water in minutes and if you buy the stove attachment you can cook your meals for free! It's like the ultimate BBQ!
This is the inflatable kayak we have- and it's a FANTASTIC motorhome gift idea. We've used it all over the place, including on a fjord in Denmark. Even if you're not travelling that far in your camper, this is a perfect place for Dad to get away from it all, maybe with a fishing rod?

Who doesn't want to spend their days swinging in a hammock and watching the world go past? It's not always easy to find available trees at motorhome campsites or aires, so a free-standing hammock is a great idea! It's even better if you have a campervan with a roof rack- easy to store. It will fit inside a motorhome, and you might even be able to store it under your fixed bed if you have one. Either way, Dad's going to love it!

If he does do a lot of wild camping, this tree-hammock might work even better!
Motorhome gift ideas for men who like gadgets!
Have you got a gadget lover in your life? Yep- me too. Give my husband anything ‘techie' and he'll happily spend a day (or five) figuring out everything it does. Here are some of our favourite (and most useful!) motorhome gadgets.
Parking a motorhome is not always easy, especially if you've been driving a long time. We LOVE our reversing camera and wouldn't want to be without it now.
This is the reversing camera we fitted into our Motorhome- and it really is brilliant. It has two cameras, which allows us to check the bikes when we're driving and also the bag which we strap to the bike rack. The screen is very clear- useful when you're trying to see just how close you are to that post! We've now used this for 6 months and highly recommend it.
If you or your Dad ever films ANYTHING in the motorhome, get him a Go Pro. It's one of my favourite things in our van- and I use it weekly, if not daily whilst we're travelling.
I recently upgraded to the Go Pro Hero 7 Black and it's AMAZING. Seriously- I've never used anything like it. (Get the black, not the silver/ white/ any other colours- the black has extra special features)

I admit, you have to REALLY like your Dad for this camper gift idea- or to have screwed up so badly that only a massive gesture will do!
But for anyone who travels, a drone is a great present. We love capturing some of the magical places we visit (if you haven't already- check out our videos!)
Just be really careful to check the rules in each country you want to use it in- even across Europe, the rules are wildly different. We personally use the DJI Mavic Pro 2, which is awesome, but you can get a cheaper version for him to try out, such as this one.
Motorhome Present Ideas
Specifically for motorhome owners, these presents will show you know how much they love their camper!
We lived on boats for 14 years and one of our favourite things is to read over our old logbooks and remember our adventures. Blogs, photos and videos are great, but there's something about seeing it written down on paper that makes it even better, which is why a motorhome journal is a fantastic gift idea for motorhome lovers.
We love to put silly comments in ours about the drive, the weather, our musical tastes or some strange event which occurred. Trust me- you'll love looking back on it in years to come.
We love this one– it looks smart and even has space for checklists and reminders.
It's easy in these days of Google to believe that you can always find the answer to whatever you need at the click of a button. However, Motorhomes have an uncanny ability to sense weakness- and they seem to know just when you're out of 3G range before they break down or do something crazy. Heck, you might not even have a phone signal to call someone.
Having an actual book around is always a good idea. Whether it's a question on construction, maintenance, wiring or a million other little things you need to know as a motorhome user, this book pretty much has it covered. It also has loads of practical tips and ideas to keep your van running smoothly.
Even if you're lucky enough to never have a problem at all, there's plenty of pictures and sections for Dad to enjoy browsing through on a rainy day in the van.
Funny Motorhome Gifts for him and campervan present ideas
Everyone loves little funny gifts, and these are some of our favourite, slightly cheaper motorhome gift ideas for him.
No celebration is complete without a spoof present- and this is the gift that keeps on giving!! You get to give him something practical and then you get to laugh at him. A lot. NOBODY looks good in a head torch.
We use these head torches and they've been brilliant. They last for ages, have a range of light settings, including red which we use more often than I thought we would, especially when trying to set up night photography or something technical like that. You learn to embrace the uncoolness and just be grateful you can see the path!!
It just wouldn't be a complete list of gift ideas for men without a comedy mug! This one made me laugh out loud, (let's face it, nobody loves toilet duty!) but there are many other funny motorhome and campervan mugs to choose from!

Talking of which, if your Dad is always complaining about his hot drink going cold too quickly, this is the perfect motorhome present for him. We've used it for years and it's never let us down!
Everyone loves a keyring- and these ones are perfect. I love the little mini compass attached.
T-shirts are always a great gift idea, particularly for motorhome owners who are proud of their camper! This one is my favourite, but there are many styles and colours to choose from.
It's not always easy finding useful and practical motorhome gifts for men. I hope he appreciates all your hard work and enjoys whatever you pick for him!
Found the PERFECT Motorhome gift idea? Let me know and I'll add it to the list!
