  2. gifts-for-rv-owners-instant-pot

    The best gifts for RV owners are practical gifts. An Instant Pot is such a gift because it does so many things; it’s a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sterilizer, and a yogurt maker, and you can saute in it. This will become their favorite kitchen gadget! It also won’t heat RV campers how an oven or even stovetop would, which is great for your loved one who travels during the summer or to hot climates. This stainless steel Instant Pot is six quarts that can hold enough food for about six people. 

  3. Collapsible Measuring Cups and Spoons
  4. gifts-for-rv-owners-spoons

    You’ll see a theme on this gift list for RV owners; space-saving items. Even huge RVs don’t have as much space as most homeowners, or apartment dwellers are used to, so every inch counts. These measuring cups collapse, and the measuring spoons are stackable, so they take up very little room in an RV kitchen! The set is made of silicone. 

  5. Cell Phone Signal Booster
  6. gifts-for-rv-owners-cell-booster

    Certainly, part of RV camping appeal is to get away from it all, but we live in a world that is heavily dependent on cell phones and the internet. As lovely as it can be to be out of reach of colleagues (and some family members!), it isn’t always practical or even safe. This cell phone signal booster can give you 74% further range from all cell, and wireless networks in the US is 5G ready and can extend battery life by as much as two hours because it provides stronger service that uses less battery power. 

  7. Roadside Emergency Kit

Give you and your RV enthusiast peace of mind. 

  9. Propane Fire Pit


    One of the best parts of camping is sitting around a fire pit. Some RV parks don’t allow open fires, but a propane fire pit is allowable because it doesn’t emit embers or sparks. The flames in this fire pit are adjustable and come up from lava rocks which flicker like a real campfire. The fire pit weighs about 20 pounds, so it’s easily portable. 

  11. Camco Outdoor Patio Mat
  12. gifts-for-rv-owners-mat

    This outdoor mat is another of the practical camping gifts because the mat has so many uses; it can be a giant doormat to keep dirt and dust out of the RV, as a picnic or beach mat, or even as a waterproof window covering if a window were to be broken while on the road. The mat measures 6 x 9, is light-weight, resistant to mildew, and UV-coated to prevent fading.

  27. Insulated Wine Glasses
  28. gifts-for-rv-owners-wine-glasses

    A nice glass of wine under the stars! Ordinary, glass, stemmed wine glasses aren’t convenient for RV living; they’re too easy to break and tip over, so these stemless, stainless steel wine glasses are a great gift. They have the bonus of being insulated to keep their white or sparkling wines chilled. The set of four wine glasses make a great stocking stuffer. Each glass holds 12 ounces. 

  29. Road Food 
  30. Part of the beauty of travel is eating at local places that you don’t have where you’re from. It’s a crime to eat at a chain when there is a mom-and-pop place nearby!

It cleans both wet and dry messes, has three different nozzles, a filter cleaning brush, an extra HEPA filter, and a carrying bag. It has a 16-foot long power cord and connects to a 12V lighter port. 

  39. Step Stool


    RVs utilize every inch of space possible for storage, so that often means high shelves and cupboards. This little step stool also utilizes space well because it folds down flat when not in use and is thin enough to store in a cupboard. It’s 12.8 inches high.

  51. Solar Lantern
  52. gifts-for-rv-owners-lantern

    The tiki torches are neat, but not everyone’s taste, and not everyone will have room for them. In either case, this solar lantern is a great alternative. With 65 lumens, it can last as long as 24 hours on a single charge which takes about seven hours. The lantern is lightweight, waterproof, and collapsable so that it’s just 1.5 inches high when being stores, and it weighs just 4,4 ounces.

  55. Door Hanging Organizer


    This organizer hangs on the inside of a door, so it gives you additional storage space. I have this organizer, and I use it for shoes, but it can store anything, cleaning products, bathroom products, glasses, silverware. Whatever you need to store! It has 24 pockets, and the hooks don’t interfere with the closet door closing. 

  57. Electric Blanket
  58. gifts-for-rv-owners-blanket


    Trying to sleep when you’re cold is the worst, and some RVs aren’t really well-insulated. The blanket is machine washable and dryer safe. It plugs into any 12V outlet. The blanket measures 54 x 38 inches. The blanket is also a great gift for truck drivers.

  59. Headlamps
  60. gifts-for-rv-owners-lamp

The lamps have a rechargeable battery, and a full charge gives you four to ten hours of light. 

  61. Fire Extinguisher Spray


    Do you know how to use a fire extinguisher? Me either. Sure we could learn, but in an emergency, would we remember? These fire extinguishers are easy to use. They’re just like using an aerosol can like hair spray or room spray. Each can give you 32 seconds of firefighting time, extinguishes paper, fabric, wood, grease, and electrical fires. The spray is non-toxic, biodegradable, and wipes clean. These are great for RV life but make a great, practical housewarming gift too.
