Present for caravan lover!

I'm really stuck for present ideas for DMIL. She doesn't have any hobbies, isn't into luxury products and jewellery etc.

BUT her and DFIL go away in their caravan whenever they can so inward thinking something related to that might be good but I haven't got a clue about caravans!

I imagine they have most practical/standard equipment so was thinking something quirky or different that they might not have heard of or thought to buy themselves.

Please help! santa

Are they members of the caravan club?
Would they like tickets to a caravan show? (Sound weird but all sorts of things for sale!) eg at NEC

Maybe a framed picture/painting of a location they love in the area the caravan is. They could keep it there or at home.

A microwave bacon crisper.

I love going away in my caravan, but I wouldn't want to go to a caravan show. People must though, or they wouldn't happen.

I'd like a really lovely cushion for mine; the upholstery is a bit bland.

I have a microwave bacon crisper for my caravan its fab. What about a caravan ornament or mugs i cant do links caravan club does them or some fleecey throws for sitting in the evening

Shockers we went when we wanted to buy a unit. Wouldn't go otherwise.
Posh travel mugs.
National Trust or other membership they could use on their travels?

MrsJayy Mon 09-Nov-15 22:30:26

Caravan shows are busy and you cant get a decent nosey

MrsJayy Mon 09-Nov-15 22:32:08

Oh yes a membership is a good idea national trust do all of the uk

I bought one of these wonderbags for someone with a caravan and she loves it. It's basically a slow cooker which uses no power!

Cobb BBQ?

What about these? www.amazon.co.uk/Smith-Ceramic-Caravan-Salt-Pepper/dp/B008GNFWEC

Fleece throws are a good idea, don't take up any space and lots of uses. Get something washable and attractive.
Or some unbreakable drinking glasses for the sundowners.

Caravan shaped bird house for the garden?

pretty tea towels for the caravan along with some plastic wine glasses and a bottle of wine?

like this sort of thing

fleecy blankets and cushions for their van?

solar fairy lights for summer evenings sitting outside their caravan?! smile

I love camping, and the more shit I get to take, the better!! grin

Wow - so many great ideas flowers

I know where they stay electricity is included so they don't need to worry about electricity-free gadgets.

I'm pretty sure they are already members of national trust or similar and I know they already go to the caravan show.

Plus they don't drink. I told you they were hard to buy for!

Lots of great ideas I can use though so thanks a lot.

Do they watch tv/movies whilst away? My parents watch movies, so I bought them a large capacity hard drive and membership to a downloads site. They loved it.

PurpleGuppy Tue 10-Nov-15 15:40:35

That's a brilliant idea, I'm not sure what they've got there in the way of a TV but maybe i could find out without them suspecting.

We have these. You have no idea how many plastic glasses we broke over the years. These are brilliant, save space and come in individual drawstring bags smile
