Tis’ The Season! Here are some Great gifts for the RVer by Andrea Buttram
Christmas and the holiday season is just around the corner and you may be pondering the perfect gift for a special person in your life. If he or she is a camper, rest assured there are plenty of useful and just plain fun items they will appreciate.
You can help your camper loved one set a festive tone with a gift to decorate the campsite. Many people like to add a personalized sign, string lights, or welcome mat at their temporary retreat. Etsy is a good place to find personalized signs, while whimsical outdoor lighting and welcome mats can be found at places such as Camping World and Amazon.
For the practical RV owner, an air dryer is a good choice. An air dryer does exactly as the name implies. It removes moisture from the air within the camper. Moisture build up in a camper is enemy number one when it comes to the longevity of a rig. A dryer is not the same as a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier requires the user to empty the moisture reservoir on a regular basis. You can turn an air dryer on for extended periods of time and forget about it. This is very handy for the times a camper is not in use and in storage
Simple models such as this one can be found for under $60.
Camping is meant to be a happy time and for some, “Happy Hour” around the campfire is a tradition. For the wine drinker there are collapsible bags that hold a full bottle’s contents and sippy cups to replace standard breakable glasses. If a mixed drink is more their style, a travel bar set or a frozen drink machine will be a welcomed luxury. The beer consumer will appreciate a quality built cooler that will hold ice for days and require fewer ice runs.
Camp food is just better, but why not make it easier? First up in the cooking category we have a tabletop gas grill as everyone appreciates a fast meal. There’s no need to wait on charcoal when you have one of these. You can attach small bottles of propane or the larger standard bottles with a simple adaptor. Next is the 3 in 1 Breakfast Station made by Nostalgia. This little guy can do it all at once with a coffee maker, griddle top, and toaster oven. Last, but not least, a camping cookbook will be appreciated by any RVer. The simplicity of cooking over an open fire creates both a tasty meal and warm memories.
