Rockin Vans Christmas Gift Guide
With two weeks remaining until Christmas, the panic buying has begun. But panic not! Here at Rockin Vans we’ve made it easy for you and taken the difficulty out of selecting that special something for the campervan enthusiast in your life. So without further ado, here is our superbly devised list of gift suggestions to avoid being the cause of false appreciation this 25th.
North Face Nuptse Slippers
Don’t be fooled by the fact that they look like luxury sleeping bags for hamsters, these durable slip-ons keep your feet cosy while providing enough support for those late night campsite stumblings. Plus they’re made from recycled post-consumer plastic, so the planet wins too!
Remote Control Campervan
This iconic model comes complete with stickers for customization, but personally we think you should just leave your hamsters to it. You’ve bought them a sleeping bag and a camper and forced them to fend for themselves in the great outdoors, the least you could do is let them express themselves. Alternatively, you could keep it traditional and spend Christmas Day ‘unintentionally’ ankle bashing your relatives while you fine-tune your steering.
We all have THAT friend. You know the one I mean. The one that loves to party but that a bottle of booze just seems too impersonal for. What better way to facilitate their tendencies than allowing them to bring the party wherever they go with this 6oz VW Hip Flask. Some may call you an enabler, but the fact it can be engraved with your own special message means at least you’ll be a sentimental one.
Kids 6V VW Campervan
Once you’ve mastered the art of the camper it’s time to instill your wealth of knowledge to future generations. What better place to start than with their own Volkswagen Campervan! This battery operated speed demon allows your future enthusiasts to cruise at leisure while the snazzy pink hue makes for a distinct APB should anyone make a break for freedom. Not just for kids, it doubles as a mobility scooter so granny’s happy too.
It’s always nice to have some inspiration for things to do and places to visit when out and about in your camper but unfortunately that pesky 4G isn’t always the most reliable while roaming in Scotland. For this reason every camper should have at least one ‘camper coffee table book’ to act as a Bears Grylls –esque manual for campervan survival. Even if you only ever use them as placemats, we’ve picked four of our favourites for you to pick from depending on how well the front cover matches your colour scheme.
One Man & His Campervan – Martin Dorey
My Cool Campervan – Jane Field-Lewis & Chris Haddon
Around the Coast in a Campervan – Jon Gunter
Mountains, Lochs & Lonely Spots – Steve Roach
The Rolling Home – Stokedeversince
Pocket Outdoor Blanket
As we all know, in the world of camping, compact is key. The only thing that tops tiny is versatility. The pocket blanket not only protects you from the elements, it also functions as a picnic blanket as well as a super trendy ghost costume should you stumble upon an unexpected Halloween bash. Eye holes not included.
Whether it’s sparking up your victory cigar after conquering an epic days adventure or simply trying to light the campfire to sit about and tell some late night ghost stories (costume optional), the wind is never your friend. The Xihar windproof lighter removes any fear of failure with their ingenious invention. (Although you might miss the team bonding huddles and the feeling of eventual success that so often come with a packet of Swans.)
No Rockin Van would be complete without some mood music to set the scene, so we’ve picked this portable VW wireless speaker that works with any bluetooth device. With a range of up to 30 feet, you could alternatively hide it near the campfire and make those ghost stories a lot more convincing with some added sound effects.
Portable Coffee Grinder
In a world that’s become accustomed to functioning primarily on caffeine and energy drinks, this portable coffee grinder is the perfect gift for campers who love their early morning coffee fix. With a built-in bean grinder and filter, this mug is a must have. And for the luxury it will Costa you next to nothing…… see what we did there?
Rockin Vans Gift Voucher
Of course no self respecting gift list would be complete without a bit of shameless, self indulgent plugging. So for the camper who now has everything, what better way to put their abundance of gifts to good use than testing them on a trip in one of our campervans. Vouchers for any denomination are available and our winter deals start at £209 for 4 nights and £369 for 7 nights.
So all that’s left to say is we hope this has given you some inspiration and happy shopping!
Merry Christmas from Everyone at Rockin Vans!

Drive through the Cornish country side stopping into some of the many quaint sea side towns for a pastie along the way.
