It can sometimes feel like a challenge to find thoughtful, useful gifts for the adults in our life.

Beeswax food wraps are an eco-friendly food storage alternative to plastic cling-wrap or aluminum foil. Although beeswax wraps cannot take the place of aluminum foil for cooking on the grill or campfire, they are perfect for covering bowls and plates. Beeswax wraps are also great for wrapping up sandwiches, fruit, veggies, and other items that you might otherwise toss in a plastic baggie.
Bees’ wraps are washable and reusable, so you can wash them by hand in cold water and hang them to dry. Because beeswax wraps are made from organic cotton that is coated with beeswax and other natural oils, you can compost them instead of throwing them into the garbage. Bees’ wraps typically last around a year depending on how frequently you use them.
These eco-friendly food storage wraps are one of the best gifts for RVers who want to live a sustainable lifestyle. They also eliminate boxes of cling wrap and plastic baggies when storage is already limited.

Silicone Coffee Dripper
A silicone coffee dripper is a perfect gift for RVers who love a pour-over cup of coffee. Not only does the pour-over method make a great cup of coffee, but most silicone coffee drippers also fold flat for storage. Even better, you can leave the bulky coffee maker and filters at home, since the silicone coffee dripper allows you to brew directly into a mug or pitcher. You can create a gift bag with a silicone coffee dripper and some coffee from a small, local coffee roaster for a thoughtful gift for the java-loving RV owner in your life.
It seems like you can never have enough ice when camping, making a countertop icemaker one of the best gifts for RVers. Depending on your size and RV type, you can free up freezer space for food storage. You can also use the countertop ice machine to avoid trips to the store to buy bagged ice for your cooler. And of course, you can enjoy access to nice, clean ice to put in your drink.
There are many different options when shopping for a countertop icemaker. Be sure to choose one that has a fillable reservoir instead of a water line. In our opinion, the best countertop icemakers have a self-cleaning option that the RVer in your life will find useful.
Waggle RV Pet Monitor
The Waggle RV Pet Monitor is more than a tech gift for RVers who travel with their cats or dogs. The Waggle Pet Monitor gives the RVer in your life the gift of peace of mind. This device monitors the temperature wherever it is placed and then sends alerts to the registered user’s mobile device. Depending on the plan, you can add up to five users, which is useful for families who travel with multiple adults or with older teenagers. In addition to purchasing the device, you can purchase the required subscription plan at the same time, which is required to use the pet monitor for RVing or in any other location.
RVers can never have too many bungee cords, making them a great gift for camper owners. Bungee cords are indispensable for securing items from bouncing around when traveling. They are also useful for creating clever storage solutions.
One of the best gifts for RV living is to give a selection of different-sized bungee cords with hooks, from mini bungees to large, heavy-duty bungee cords. Bungee cords can be found in camping specialty stores, hardware stores, and big-box retailers.
Personalized gifts for RVers are a thoughtful way to help the RV owners in your life celebrate the RV lifestyle. You can find a variety of personalized gifts for RV owners including garden flags, doormats, throw pillows, and blankets.
Kitchen items like personalized cutting boards, water bottles, beverage insulators, plastic or metal tumblers, and mugs also make great gifts for RV owners. Many artisans offer gorgeous wooden and metal signs that you can have customized with the RV owner’s surname, which they can proudly display outside of their RV.
