Yes it’s that time of year again – Christmas is almost here and we all want to buy the perfect gift for that special someone. But it can be even harder to choose something when that person lives in or does a lot of caravanning. So we have put together a list of 5 gifts for caravanners. These are all things that we have in our caravan and use all the time. So you know they have been tried and tested by us on multiple occasions.
A SWIG MUG OR CUP
I don’t know how I ever lived without my lovely Swig Mug from Love Your Travels. It keeps my wine cool and the pesky little insects out! If a swig cup isn’t your thing, then why not pick up one of their lovely slimline travel mugs. They have an awesome range of colours available too. PLUS, if you enter the code allaroundoz at checkout you will receive 10% off your order. Plus you’ll be helping out a small Aussie business! Just head to the Love Your Travels shop to place your order.
COLEMAN 12 VOLT FAN
When you’re free camping in summer time you need something to help cool the inside of the van down and this Coleman 12 volt fan does an awesome job. We opted for a free-standing fan as we can pack it away when it’s not needed. For a small fan it does a really great job and it’s not noisy. They come in two different sizes – 8 inch or 12 inch and are now available with Lithium Ion batteries. You can grab one of these great fans online at Snowys’s Outdoors with prices starting at $54.90.
HOSELINK MIST KIT
A mist kit was something we had never seen or even thought of until we met a lovely gentleman whilst on the Follow the Sun Relay earlier this year who had one set up around his awning. With a small fan, like the Coleman one above, going it was so cool under his awning even though the temperature was hovering in the mid-40’s.
So when we got home we ordered one straight away. We have used it a few times now and it’s awesome when free camping and it uses hardly any water. We got ours from Hoselink as we use their tap and hose fittings as well. Whole kit is $59.90.
Another favourite item of ours is this awesome Campfire Frypan. As it has higher sides than a standard frypan, it’s perfect for making a stir fry or a spag bol in. It’s super light weight and so easy to clean. Nothing sticks to it and you just need some warm soapy water and a sponge to wash it up. No scrubbing needed! Definitely one of our favourite items that we use all the time! Once again this can be purchased online from Snowy’s Outdoors. Currently on sale for $44.90.
SMARTSENSE GAS LEVEL MONITOR
If you know someone that likes their ‘techy’ gadgets then the newest release from BMPRO might make a great gift. Just download the App for the SmartSense Gas Level Monitor to your mobile phone, pop the unit onto the bottom of your gas bottle and it will instantly tell you how much gas is left in the bottle. You’ll never run out of gas again! Available for purchase from BMPRO and went you enter the code AAOZ at check-out you’ll receive $10.00 off your purchase.
