Gifts for motorhome owners who have everything
Seashell Robe 3.0
This is an ideal present for the motorhome owner who loves touring all year round. It has a 100% waterproof and windproof outer shell layer, as well as a Sherpa fleece lining. This makes it a great choice whether it’s a rainy day, you’re heading to the beach or just fancying a walk. The robe also comes with a fleece-lined hood and internal zip pockets, while it gives you room to wear plenty of layers beneath. Available in three different colours, it’s easy to freshen up too, as it’s machine washable at 30°C.
LEGO Volkswagen T2 Campingbus
This adult LEGO set may be retired from the online Lego store but we’ve found it on Amazon and think it would make a great gift for ‘van fans out there. With 2,207 pieces, it’s not for the faint-hearted, but it will let you recreate the iconic Volkswagen T2. The ‘van comes packed full of features that any campervan owner will love, including a sliding side door and eye-catching decals – there’s even a kitchen, with a spec that includes a sink, fridge and stove. Then, for the final touch, it comes with a pop-up fabric roof. Eye-catching and sure to offer a bit of nostalgia, this should certainly keep the recipient occupied for a while!
If you’re buying for someone who loves spotting wildlife and spending time in the great outdoors when they’re on tour, these binoculars could be a great way to enhance their experience. They have a 25x magnification, while the 70mm objective lenses enhance the maximum image brightness when dealing with low-light conditions. A large central dial allows you to quickly focus too, while its protective rubber exterior makes it easy to grip.
If you’re wondering what to buy a motorhome owner who loves their gadgets, this portable power station could be well worth considering. Practical Motorhome’s Deputy editor, Paul, praised its simplicity when he tested it, as well as its effectiveness when it came to charging small devices (see his full review: Bluetti EB3A). As it only weighs 4.6kg, it’s relatively lightweight and offers good connectivity, thanks to its range of slots that include a USB-C and two USB-As. In short, a great way to add some more power to the touring experience!
BRISA Volkswagen Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Adding the distinctive flair of the Volkswagen T1 Bus to an audio experience, this stylish Bluetooth speaker is available in both blue and red. Only taking three hours to charge, the officially licensed Volkswagen campervan will flash its LED lights when looking for a Bluetooth connection. The manufacturer advises it’s able to operate for up to five hours from a full charge. Plus, there’s no getting away from how smart the speakers look too.
Revell 07674 VW T1 Camper
If someone has always harboured dreams of building their own campervan, this could be the ideal gift. The detailed kit is designed for advanced model builders, with both glueing and painting required to create the final article. It’s a chance to get creative and the finished result wouldn’t look out of place on a home office desk or as an ornament on a bookcase.
Motorhome gifts for children
Peppa Pig Wooden Campervan
Fans of Peppa Pig are bound to love this adorable wooden set. The ‘van, which comes with two removable seats and a Daddy Pig figure, can be pushed along too. It’s an ideal present for letting the imagination run wild and recreating on tour life, with the roof of the ‘van able to double up as a picnic table, while there’s a pull-out awning which can be changed into a picnic blanket too.
Barbie 3-in-1 Dream Camper
A motorhome that includes a truck, a boat and a house may sound like a fantasy, but it’s a reality with the Barbie 3-in-1 Dream Camper. The perfect gift for Barbie fans, it comes with 60 accessories and has a whole host of areas, including a lounge, a washroom, a rooftop bedroom, a kitchen and even a pool! The coffee table can be flipped to reveal a fire pit and a loft bed can be found by popping the roof.
PLAYMOBIL 70176 Volkswagen T1 Camping Bus
Do you want to give a younger motorhomer the chance to recreate a VW but think the LEGO set is too advanced? Then this PLAYMOBIL set, which can be assembled to create the iconic Volkswagen T1, could be the answer. As well as coming with two figures, the ‘van itself has side doors and a rear bonnet that opens, a removable roof, a luggage rack, a folding rear seat and table, plus a range of accessories that will allow you to kit the ‘van out and recreate those on-tour memories. It’s an officially licensed Volkswagen product too.
Stocking filler gifts for motorhome owners
Retro Campervan Biscuit Tin
This smart campervan biscuit tin provides a hint of retro style to any home. Inside, you’ll find two different types of Scottish shortbread – All Butter Chocolate Chip and All Butter, the perfect snacks for the next time they’re pitched up at their campervan campsite. The tin is available in two different colours (blue and white or yellow and white) too.
Motorhome Mug Set
If you’re buying something small for a couple who love getting out in their ‘van, this eye-catching pair of mugs could make a thoughtful gift. They can be put in the microwave and used in the dishwasher too, with the cheerful pattern appearing on both sides. They’re also both designed and printed in the UK as well.
BRISA Volkswagen Salt & Pepper Set
Add some VW style to your mealtimes with this salt and pepper set. They’re made from corrosion-resistant ceramic, with openings to be found on the roof. To ensure there are never any issues with telling them apart, one is labelled ‘SaltBus’ and the other ‘PepperBus’. There are three different colours available, red and white, blue and white, and black and white. I personally like the red and white set, and think they look smart enough to display as ornaments!
Baked Bean SAFECAN
Not many people would expect to unwrap a can of Baked Beans on Christmas Day, but this useful present is actually a handy place for storing valuables. A secret compartment can be found in the base, which provides an ideal spot for hiding money or similar. It’s a genuine replica licensed can, and it can then be hidden away in the kitchen cupboard of a ‘van, where it wouldn’t attract attention.
Useful gifts for motorhomers
Anyone who has a smaller ‘van will appreciate accessories that are multi-functioning and space-saving, and that’s certainly two boxes that the iBeani Quishion ticks. It can be transformed from a cushion (45 x 45cm) into a quilted blanket (190 x 140 cm) in seconds. For added ease, it’s also machine washable, so you can quickly freshen it up at the end of a tour.

I’m sure I’m not alone in loving some caffeine throughout the day. If you’re buying for a motorhome owner who is as much of a coffee addict as me, this WACACO Nanopresso could be their favourite gift of the year. It doesn’t require electricity or a battery – instead, it’s manually operated. You just need ground coffee and hot water and you’ll then be able to enjoy a nice espresso, complete with a cream layer. There are numerous accessories you can buy to accompany it too, providing further gifting inspiration for down the line.
Anker 325 Portable Charger
One of the best parts of being on tour is exploring the surrounding area. If you know someone who regularly sets off from the campsite for the day, a portable charger could be the perfect Christmas present, allowing them to top up their phone as they go. The Anker 325 comes with a 20,000mAh capacity and, as it comes with both USB-C and USB-A ports, it’s able to charge two devices simultaneously. It should be able to top up an iPhone up to 4.3 times and as it’s only 467g, can be unobtrusively stored as well.
LE Rechargeable Camping Lights
This is the type of gift for a motorhome owner that isn’t exciting – instead, it’s highly practical and one that will almost certainly be used at some point. This particular option is IPX4 water-resistant, can be used at either 300 or 500 lumens and even has a side light which offers three different light modes. For ease, it’s recharged via a USB too.
