This list is for those who love to travel and be outside, but have limited space for THINGS! These gifts allow your loved ones to pack light and compact and still enjoy life! Click the pictures for more details!
My mom and sister got this for me right before we started traveling in our RV full-time. Relaxing in a hammock is one of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors. It is easily taken on a backpacking, hiking, or camping trip. When you’re ready to pack up, the fabric easily folds up into the attached pouch, making it compact and lightweight.
2. Zero Gravity Chairs
Zero gravity chairs are great to have around a fire pit or on the deck. The addition of the sliding table adds a neat feature for a place to put drinks, a snack, or smore’s supplies.
3. Light-weight collapsible camping chairs
These collapsible camping chairs are great for backpacking, hiking, or beach trips. They fold up to fit in the pouch and are extremely lightweight.
4. Sandals with a bottle opener
Drinking on the boat, lake, or beach? Did you forget a bottle opener? No worries with the Reef sandal! Not only are these sandals extremely comfortable, you can just flip your flop over and open your bottle with the bottle opener on the bottom of your sandal! It’s already come in handy for us!
5. Go Pro Hero 6 Camera
The ultimate action camera. You’ll never miss any part of your adventure when you have the Hero 6, with its awesome picture quality and ability to mount to all types of surfaces.
6. Go Pro Accessories: See below
6a. Grab bag of mounts
This is a great way to build your collection of mounts. These mounts will stick to almost any surface and are a great way to start using your Go Pro.
6b. The Handler
The Handler is probably the Go Pro accessory I use the most. It’s great to film water shots and just simple everyday use.
6c. Head Strap Mount and Quick Clip
For a hands free way of capturing your adventure, the head strap mount and quick clip are great! I use these for kayaking and boating.
6d. Chest Mount
The chest mount is another great way to stay hands free! I use this one more for white water rafting or skiing.
6e. Smart Remote
I recently bought this accessory and love it! You wear it on your wrist like a watch and it compliments the head strap and chesty mounts so you can see exactly what your camera is doing without having to unclip your Go Pro.
6f. Handle Bar Mount
This mount is used to capture trail riding, road biking, or even capturing the view from a motorcycle.
If you’re around water, you definitely want to have the floaty door. This just easily attaches to one of your backdoors on your case and prevents your camera from sinking. The adhesive is incredible. I’ve had the floaty on for years and put it through all kinds of water adventures, and it still looks like I put it on today.
6h. Rechargeable Battery
It’s always nice to have an extra battery so you don’t miss out on any of the action!
6i. Dual Battery Charger
This is a nice accessory to charge your batteries quickly! Each battery lasts a few hours, so it’s nice to have a few extra backup batteries to make sure you don’t miss out on anything!
6j. Accessories Case
Keep all your accessories organized in one place with the Go Pro case. It’s easily customizable for your specific mounts.
Whether you’re out on the road or enjoying the great outdoors, the Canon Powershot sx530 is great for scenic images. Between the amazing zoom and picture quality, this camera will capture it all.
Headlamps are always necessary when camping or RV’ing. When you need two hands for things like building a fire or changing your propane tanks at night (we know from experience the propane tank ALWAYS goes empty at night). This is a great alternative to flashlights.
9. Inflatable Lounge Chair
This was a gift from my sister, and I LOVE it! It’s super lightweight, there’s no need for a pump, and it’s extremely compact. It also floats! I use this the most at the lake!
10. RV pajamas
Who doesn’t love RV pajamas? They’re super cute and very comfortable.
11. Instant Pot
The Instant Pot makes cooking in the RV very simple and fast! Everyone I’ve heard from loves their Instant Pot!
12. Trailer Trash sticker for trash can
Put this sticker on your trash can for a little extra fun in your RV.
We use ours constantly! Whale watching on the coast, binoculars. Grand Canyon, binoculars. Bird watching, binoculars. You get the point. Save your eyes the strain, and grab a pair of binoculars.
14. Grilling Utensils Set
We grill out all the time while we’re camping. This set keeps all your grilling utensils organized and portable.
15. Portable Grill
When we’re out on the road, we’re constantly moving from one place to the next. Having a grill that we can easily pack away and get back out easily is so handy.
16. Mummy Sleeping Bag
I don’t go camping without my mummy sleeping bag. It’s lightweight and keeps me warm. I don’t need much else from a sleeping bag.
17. Pop Up Tent
I LOVE this tent! You take it out of the bag, and it literally POPS out and sets its self up within 1 second! This is exactly what I want at the end of a long backpacking trip when I was too tired to mess with poles. I recommend the 4-person, even if just for 2 people, because it allows you a place around the sleeping bags for your camping gear.
What’s life without music? It’s always nice to have a speaker to play your favorite music.
19. Shower Caddy
Again, my sister got me this gift and told me I wasn’t allowed to use old grocery bags anymore. For that, I am thankful. This caddy is really nice for organization and a quick run to the bathhouse.
20. Mattress Topper
If you have ever owned an RV, you know the original mattresses aren’t always the best. I have never slept better after my mom got me a mattress topper for the bed. Now I sleep like a baby.
21. Back up camera
Having a camera on the back bumper allows one of us to hook the truck up to the camper while the other is busy putting stuff away inside the camper. Makes for a quick set up!
22. Propane Fire Pit
I didn’t even know these existed until recently. Instead of burning wood, which some campgrounds don’t allow due to fire hazards, this fire pit burns propane and is turned off with a turn of a switch. You don’t have to worry about how to put the fire out at night or even which way the smoke blows, because there is none!
