Wondering what to get that outdoorsy or RV-loving person this year? Our holiday gift guide with suggestions for any budget will make the season merrier!

After our fourth summer of weekend RV traveling & hiking through state parks with our dogs, we understand what things can make the trip or hike more enjoyable. These can range from small, inexpensive items to larger, more luxurious ones.

If you are looking for a gift for the outdoorsy or RV-loving person in your life, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve personally tried and thoroughly recommend everything on this holiday gift guide – plus we’ve organized it from least to most expensive.

These small flashlights are useful in so many ways – finding your way to the bath house at night, looking in nooks & crannies of RV storage spaces, lighting the way for a midnight doggie bathroom break, keeping in your backpack to see into dark places – you may want to buy TWO sets! 

For only $10, you get 4 flashlights – but don’t forget the batteries!

Traveling with full containers of salt, pepper, and other spices can get ugly. Not only do they take up space, they often come open and spice up your life more than you’d like. 

This travel spice set gives you variety in a no-spill, easy to seal packets – plus they are all organic. You can select from a variety of spice mixes ranging in price from $14-$25. 

Comfy, warm, and dry socks are a MUST on camping & hiking weekends, and no one does your feet better than SmartWool! Maybe you read our Flash Review?!

From varying thickness to crazy prints, you’ll find SmartWool socks for any taste. They outlast & outperform the others and will run you about $20-30.

Great pie irons are the go-to for any weekend camping trip! 

From crafting your own pizza-like sandwiches to creating an campfire apple pie to die for, pie irons are only as limited as your imagination. 

If the person you are buying these for is clumsy or known to break a lot of things, no worries! These long-handled, heavy-duty pie irons are only $22 and come with a 10-year warranty. 

Perhaps you’ve heard (read) me rant & rave about campground shower house timer buttons (I’m strongly against them). 

Whether the shower has a timer button or not, TRUST ME, you need a good hoodie to walk back to your campsite post-shower, and no thin little thing will do. 

This Champion hoodie with high neck does the trick, stands up to multiple washes, and comes in a bunch of colors. You may be able to catch it on sale for around $35. 

Why the high neck & hood? Ask the mosquitoes. 

If you don’t think your RV / outdoor / camping / hiking / outdoor enthusiast could use a mini-coffee maker, you are mistaken. 

Browse through our history of coffee mistakes to understand why ANY coffee gift will be a welcome one!

Whether it’s this mini coffee-maker for $70, a sturdy mug, or just some pods for the road, coffee is king. 

My Mom got these for us last year, and we used them every RV weekend!

Post-hike, zero-gravity chairs let you kick up your tired feet while the breathable mesh you’re laying back on is keeping you cool. 

Zero-gravity chairs can also put you in the perfect position for bird-watching or star-gazing. 

They fold flat for simple storage and are easy to clean- and come in at just $70 for a pair. 

BONUS GIFT-GIVING PRO-TIP: Add in a bottle of gear and clothing insect repellent to protect against ticks. You know they’re out there! 

Do you have something to add to this list? Put it in the comments below- we can all use a little help holiday shopping!

Happy holiday gifting to you & yours! 

We learned a lot of lessons this year while weekend RVing. A lot of lessons.
