With Christmas rapidly approaching, if you haven’t started your shopping yet, now is the time to get onto it! If you have a caravanner in your life, it can be hard to know what to get them.
Gifts for caravanners need to be practical and if it serves more than one purpose or is compact and lightweight then that is even better. So here is a list of Christmas Gift Ideas for Caravanners to help you get your Christmas shopping done and dusted.
1. HOSELINK CONNECTORS AND HOSES
We purchased a set of Hoselink connectors when we first got our our van and they are brilliant. We have had no leaks and they are really easy to connect together. There are also food grade drinking water hoses available.
We also added a ‘Mist Kit’ that we hang underneath our awning on really hot days. It keeps the area so lovely and cool.
As an added bonus Hoselink is 100% Aussie owned and operated. You can check out all the products they have available for caravanners on the Hoselink website.
2. EZY ANCHOR
These are something else that we added to our travelling kit when our van was brand new. They are seriously the best pegs and anchor points we have ever used. They just will not come out of the ground, unless you want them to. Add the velcro anchor points to them as well and you will never need any other kind.
Once again, they are an Aussie owned and operated business, which we love. You can get all your Ezy Anchor gear from their website.
3. HANGING TOILETRY BAG
A hanging toiletry bag is one of the handiest things I own. When you hit the showers, there is often not a lot of space to sit stuff and spray from the shower makes everything wet. Being able to hang your toiletry bag up and have everything you need in plain sight makes shower time much easier.
The Sea to Summit range are available from Tentworld and are a great size and design and are nice and compact when closed up.
4. CAR SEAT ORGANISER
Whether you are travelling with kids or not, this car seat organiser will save your sanity. No more scrabbling to find sunscreen, a tissue or whatever you need on a regular basis. It even has a removable rubbish pouch! If you think this is as great as I do, you can grab one from the Adventure Awaits shop for just $29.95.
5. SOLAR BLANKET
One of the biggest challenges when travelling is maintaining a power supply. If you need a little bit of an extra boost then a Solar Blanket may be the way to go. Available in up to 180 watt, solar blankets fold up to become compact and easy to store. They are also much lighter in weight than your standard fixed or folding solar panel.
Check out the range of Solar Blankets available from My Generator.
6. CARAVANNING WITH KIDS TRAVEL JOURNAL
I so wish these had been around when our kids were little. I can’t think of a better way for your kids to record their adventures than in one of these awesome journals. Check out the Caravanning with Kids shop to see their whole range. Plus they are Australian made!
7. BAMBOO TRAVEL MUG
I love these funky caravanners coffee mugs so much. Made of bamboo with a retro caravan design on them they are the perfect Chrissy present. Available in a generous 400ml size and a range of colours they would make an awesome gift. Once again they are available through the Caravanning with Kids shop.
8. COMPANION KIDS ANIMAL HEADLAMP
For the little travellers in your life why not get them one of these cool Companion Kids headlamps? Available as a lion, dog, monkey or frog they will be both practical and fun. And they are priced between $9.00 and $15.99 so they are very affordable. You could buy one of each!
9. HEMA 4WD OUTDOOR PACK
If you like to get off the beaten track, then this Hema 4WD Outdoor Pack is just what you will need to ensure you never get lost. It includes the HX-1 Navigator, 4WD Adventures, Australia Road & 4WD Handy Atlas and an Australia Handy Map. This pack is great value too at just $699.00 for over $800 of goodies from Hema.
10. LOVE YOUR TRAVELS SWIG CUPS
If like me, you like a wine, then you will definitely need one of these gorgeous ‘Swig Cups’ from Love Your Travels. They come in a range of pretty colours and have a clear lid on them to keep out those pesky insects. They also have travel mugs, stubby coolers and very cute ‘Happy Camper’ keyrings.

Australian adventure company Adrenaline has an amazing range of experiences that would make a perfect gift for anyone. From hot air ballooning to snorkeling, they have you covered. Or if you’re not sure what sort of an experience to buy then they have a range of gift cards as well.
12. SMART SENSE GAS BOTTLE MONITOR
If you love your gadgets then this is a good one for you. Plus you will never run out of gas again with the Smart Sense Gas Bottle Monitor from BMPRO. Just pair the monitor to your mobile phone, pop it on the bottom of your gas bottle and it will tell you exactly how much gas you have left.
