38 Gift Ideas For Full-Time RVer’s

Gifts Ideas For RVer’s … From RVer’s!

It’s not always easy to know what to get us! Especially if you don’t live our type of life, and don’t realize we really don’t have the room for stuff. So many extended family members struggle with this. So I decided to collaborate with a few new and long time full-time RVers and put together a list that might help. The common theme I hear from almost everyone was they wanted experiences, not things. And so many of them wanted those experiences with their families. So buying a movie ticket, for example, is wonderful, but buying a movie ticket for yourself to come along was even more wonderful.

Since we left on our full-time RV adventure, we’ve had discussions with other RVers on the accumulation of “stuff” and how stressful it is during holidays or birthdays to receive stuff. So what is a full-time RVer’s perfect gift to receive? We have some ideas for you. 

Homemade baked goods was definitely on almost everyone’s list! If your full-time RV family member is going to be around during the holidays they want cookies!  A lot of full time travelers don’t have the larger ovens to cook more than a few cookies, and a lot of times our ovens leave a lot to be desired.

But gift cards was the #1 request. As much as we know it seems impersonal to give a gift card, they are really the top request. Here is a list of helpful requests from Full-Time RVer’s
