Looking for Motorhome gift ideas or campervan accessories for the perfect present? I get it- it can be tough to find the right gift for someone who owns a van- especially if you don't know much about motorhome life.
You want a useful present, or a funny motorhome gift for Christmas or their birthday or anniversary- something which shows you really know the recipient. Or 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 motorhome gift ideas right here- most of them are even on Amazon Prime in case you…umm.. forgot. Tut tut.
Gifts for campervan and motorhome owners
Before we get started, this post focuses on gifts for people with motorhomes. If your friend or relative has a campervan, here are 35 AWESOME vanlife gift ideas for campervanners which is full of ideas perfect for spending time in a van.
There's 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 adventures around UK, Europe or even further! There's also a range of budgets- from fun novelty gifts to ones which will really change their motorhoming life!
We share perfect motorhome gift ideas for couples, families or anyone who likes to get out and explore in their motorhome.
People LOVE their motorhomes, but often don't like to spend too much money on things to make their lives easier. Here's a great opportunity for you to get them some of the best motorhome gadgets- something they REALLY want and need.
A motorhome sat nav is essential. You NEED to know where the low bridges, one-way streets and crazy roads are… and how to avoid them in a big vehicle.
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!
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.
Easy Levelling for Motorhomes and caravans
This easy to install levelling device allows you to level a motorhome with ease. When the van's level, the LEDs show it. It's as simple as that. No more fighting, endless adjusting or embarrassment on a campsite.
A reversing camera is another motorhome gadget which we feel is almost essential- especially for the 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 an end window) and also down at our trailer or bike rack.
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.
This. Is. AMAZING.
Sometimes it gets cold in a motorhome- even with 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 drone. We LOVE our DJI Mavic Pro 2, but it's quite big and expensive for newbies to drones, so the new 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.
If you think a drone is too much for them, a GoPro Hero 7 BLACK is just as useful. We use our ALL THE TIME to capture memories and silly things which happen on the road (which you can see on our Instagram)
Motorhome fun accessories
I'll be honest- I was a bit sceptical about this. It seemed a bit ‘gimmicky'. But we genuinely use our photo printer ALL the time. It's a great way to print out photos as we travel and stick them up inside the motorhome- or give them to people we meet as a fun memento of our meeting.
‘Real Fire' Crackling Candle
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.
However, sometimes that's just not possible- due to weather or location, so this AMAZING candle is the next best thing.
The Woodwind 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!)
We use our bottle light ALL the time. It's battery-powered and gives a soft glow which isn't bright enough to block out the stars, but gives enough light for us to find our beer in the dark! It's the perfect light for warm evenings in the motorhome.
Motorhome Wall Clock
This fun gift isn't for IN the motorhome- but rather to remind them of what's waiting. It's a motorhome wall clock, with different makes of camper or RV at each number. Makes a great talking point for visitors to their home.
Personalised Motorhome Gifts for couples
There are a wide range of personalised gifts you can buy for motorhome or RV owners. 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's a cute handpainted personalised caravan sign if that suits better)
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. How he cooks all that on a campervan stove I have no idea!
- The Motorhome Touring Handbook– useful for all motorhome owners
- Two Old Farts and a motorhome– fun tales of motorhome travel
- Camperstop Europe– useful info for anyone planning a trip to Europe in their motorhome

Motorhome Caravan Doll House
I dare you not to want this- it's the cutest thing ever. I feel deprived that I never had a motorhome or caravan dollhouse as a child.

There are so many cool things about this I don't even know where to start. But it comes with a boat. And a BEAR. It's just awesome.
