Best Ever Motorhome Gifts
It can be tough to find the right gift for someone who owns a motorhome – especially if you don’t know much about vanlife or spending time on the road.
You want a useful present, or a funny motorhome gift for Christmas, their birthday or an anniversary- something which shows you really know the recipient. Or perhaps you’re looking for the PERFECT secret Santa present for a colleague who owns a motorhome (or caravan.)
Whatever your budget, whatever your reason, we have some of the BEST campervan gadgets and motorhome gift ideas right here- most of them are even on Amazon Prime in case you need something last minute (you’re welcome!)
Best Gift ideas for motorhome owners
There are a range of gifts for motorhome owners here- some perfect for the couple who spend every weekend away in their camper, others for people who are heading off on long-term motorhome adventures around UK, Europe or even further!
There’s also a range of gifts for all budgets- from fun novelty presents to ones which will really change their motorhoming life for the better!
This post focuses on gifts for motorhome or RV owners. Looking for campervan gifts? Here are 35 AWESOME vanlife gift ideas for campervanners which they will really appreciate.
Perfect Motorhome Gifts- Useful Gadgets
People who have motorhomes generally love gadgets. Things to make life on the road a little easier. Here’s a great opportunity for you to get them something they REALLY want and need.
TOP TIP: Some of these are expensive, so check to make sure they don’t have one (or they want to upgrade!) before you buy.
Motorhome theft is sadly a real problem. If the motorhome is kept on a driveway or street, it can easily be a target for thieves. This anti-theft GPS tracker is perfect to give someone peace of mind- or to track their motorhome should the worst happen.
Portable power station
Getting power can be a struggle in a motorhome- especially if they enjoy spending time away from campsites. This portable power station is also brilliant for anyone who likes to work outside- I’ve written half of this motorhome blog using it whilst sitting outside the van.
A reversing camera is another motorhome gadget that we feel is essential- especially for bigger motorhomes. This is the system we installed and it’s brilliant. It allows us to see both behind us (REALLY useful if you don’t have a rear window) and also be able to see our trailer or bike rack.
A motorhome sat nav is definitely an essential accessory and makes a very thoughtful gift. With a large vehicle, you NEED to know where the low bridges, one-way streets and crazy roads are… and how to avoid them.
Yet many people struggle along with Google Maps or a car sat-nav, and often end up in all sorts of trouble. Get them a dedicated motorhome sat-nav and watch their eyes light up! This is one of the best sat-navs on the market right now (you can check out other motorhome sat-nav ideas and budgets here)
Personalised Motorhome Gifts for couples and owners
There are a wide range of personalised gifts you can buy for motorhome or RV owners. People LOVE their vans with a passion- and many of our own favourite motorhome gifts have been something personalised for it.
Personalised motorhome signs
This cute personalised motorhome sign is one of my favourites; well made, easy to put up in the motorhome and a constant reminder of how awesome you are to buy it for them!
Here are some more personalised vanlife gift signs to choose from:
Another motorhome gift idea, especially for couples, is personalised cushions. Here are some of our favourites:
Motorhome journal/ logbook
One of the best gift ideas is a motorhome journal/ log book. In it, they can record every adventure they have, where they stayed, routes taken, best places visited and silly things which happened along the way.
We struggled to find a layout we liked, so we designed our own motorhome logbook! It contains over 100 pages, including essential checklists, planning tips, space for notes and much more. In our opinion, it’s the perfect gift for motorhome owners. 🙂
Motorhome Gift Ideas- Useful & Practical motorhome accessories
Let’s be honest, if your recipient has owned their motorhome for longer than a week, they probably have most of the basics already. So let’s find some unique gifts they probably don’t have yet.
Heated blanket for inside the motorhome
This. Is. AMAZING.
Sometimes it gets cold in a van- even with proper campervan heating. If you use the motorhome all year round, or if your recipient is always cold, this 12v plugin heated blanket is PERFECT. It can keep passengers warm in the back, or can be used when parked up on a campsite or around the campfire. It doesn’t draw a lot of power, so the battery can run it without a problem. Seriously, I’m in love.
If your recipient is anything like us, they will LOVE taking photos and videos of the places they visit- even if it only stays on their hard drive.
Why not help them get even better shots of their travels (and their motorhome!) and treat them to a travel drone. We LOVE our DJI Mavic Pro, but it’s quite big and expensive for newbies to drones, so the DJI mini is a better starting point (and cheaper for you too!)
It takes amazing footage, is easy to fly and won’t take up much space in the motorhome. You can see other travel drones we recommend for a range of budgets here.
If you think a drone is too much for them, a GoPro is just as useful. We use ours ALL THE TIME to capture memories and silly things which happen on the road.
The Go Pro Hero range is amazing. The latest is the Go Pro Hero 11 which is insanely good.
Motorhome Gift Ideas- Books
Believe it or not- motorhome lovers like to read about motorhomes, adventures, motorhome systems and electrics, cooking in the camper… and many other things.
Even people not normally known to pick up a book (my husband!) has a selection of Motorhome themed books that he likes to flick through on a wet afternoon when we’re chilling with no phone signal. Here are some of our favourites:
- The Campervan Cookbook- This book is beautifully presented and a joy to flick through.
- The Motorhoming Made Simple Handbook- useful for all motorhome owners
- Two Old Farts and a motorhome– fun tales of motorhome travel
- The Complete Guide to Motorhoming in Europe – useful info for anyone planning a trip to Europe with their van
Some other motorhome books we love include:
Everyone loves a funny/ themed motorhome t-shirt and people do wear them at campsites all over the world. Here are some of our favourites:
Wandering & Winging It
These t-shirts and hoodies are perfect for anyone who enjoys a good vanlife adventure and enjoys the freedom of the open road. Available in male/ female cuts and a range of colours and sizes.

Motorhome gifts- fun accessories
I’ll be honest- I was a bit sceptical about this photo printer. It seemed a bit ‘gimmicky’. But we genuinely use ours ALL the time. It’s a great way to print out memories and favourite photos as we travel and stick them up inside the motorhome- or give them to people we meet along the way.
One of the things we love in the motorhome is campfires. There’s nothing better than sitting outside, watching the sunset over the horizon and watching the flames.
If you can’t have a proper campfire (many campsites don’t allow them), this folding BBQ firepit is one of the best we’ve found!
And if you want to treat them to a brilliant portable BBQ which they’ll use time and time again, this is one of the best on the market.
Campervan Plate set
Isn’t this the cutest campervan plate set you’ve ever seen?!
Storage is at a premium in a van- and this folding pan is so useful at saving space.
‘Real Fire’ Crackling Candle
However, sometimes a fire is just not possible- due to weather or location, so this AMAZING candle is the next best thing.
The Woodwick crackling candle actually sounds like a real fire, it smells awesome (I love the berry ones) and it doesn’t get warm on the bottom so it’s safe for any surface. Easy to light and relight, this is the perfect gift for anyone who uses their motorhome through the winter (or anyone who likes candles!)
I hope that helps sort out your motorhome gift-giving needs for Christmas, Birthdays, anniversaries or anything else! If not, these might do the trick:
