Christmas Essentials For RVers

amazon kindle

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s not just about family and friends, it’s about giving back to others. It’s about putting others before yourself. That’s what makes shopping for Christmas gifts so fun. Of course, figuring out what to get your family and friends can be a little problematic. Unfortunately, we can’t help you with great aunt Susie, but we can help you figure out what to get the RVer in your life.

iTunes/Google Play Gift Card

There are a ton of helpful apps out there that the RVer in your life could use. Some are free, while others cost money. These gift cards allow the recipient to decide which apps will work best for them. Plus, even if they have all the apps they could want, they can use these gift cards to buy some new music or audiobooks to enjoy on their next road trip.

LED Flashlight

This might sound boring, but LED flashlights are incredibly bright and energy efficient. Even if the RVer in your life has a flashlight, replacing it with an LED will save them from having to be constantly changing batteries or toting batteries around.

Traveling Spice Kit

Does your RVer love to cook? This kit includes 20 delicious savory and sweet herbs and spices that can be used to cook a wide variety of cuisines. The best part it it’s all packed and ready to go, so they don’t have to worry about spices spilling or measuring and repacking spices.

Walkie Talkies

Sure, everyone has cell phones, but walkie talkies are great to use if you’re hiking in an area that doesn’t have much cell phone coverage. The walkies we linked to have an impressive 23 mile range, so even if you’re hiking and your spouse is back at the RV, you’ll still be able to communicate with them.


The Kindle is an eReader. It allows you to bring along thousands of books, all on one little electronic device. The best thing is that reading on a kindle is like reading a book because the words are arranged using eInk technology. I was opposed to the idea of getting a Kindle because I was attached to the idea of having a book in my hands. Once I got one, though, I realized there wasn’t much of a difference at all. In fact the Kindle still needs a reading light, because it isn’t backlit like a computer or phone screen. This means it won’t hurt your eyes.
