Christmas Gifts Under a Fiver

Comments Off on Christmas Gifts Under a Fiver


Working on a budget and wondering what to get your caravanning, camping and motorhoming relatives and friends?  Here are a few ideas.



Getting the right pitch and facing the right way for the evening sun is always a priority.  With this pocket compass from Outdoor Ranger for £4.99 it makes the job so much easier.

Setting up camp also involves drinking quite a bit of tea.  Here’s a handy tea bag squeezer to keep tea making clean and tidy.


From John Lewis at £3.00

Keep caravan cupboards tidy by sealing all opened packets with these useful Jumbo Klippits from Lakeland at £3.59


When it’s lashing down with rain there’s nothing for it but to get the playing cards out.  Get these fun Bicycle Playing Cards from John Lewis at £3.99


Everyone seems to be getting more adventurous on their caravan and motorhoming trips, with the countries of Eastern Europe offering exciting countries to visit.  Michael Palin writes of his travels in New Europe which will make a great read for anyone planning a tour.


Available from the BBC Shop at £4.49


As far as I’m concerned, you can never have enough torches when your out in the countryside, camped in complete darkness.  This pocket sized LED torch is small enough to take everywhere with you.  


Go Outdoors at £4.99

There’s no need to go without a cup of tea or coffee if you’re packing up camp and moving on.  Just take it with you in this Kingfisher Steel Travel Mug from Go Outdoors at £4.00


I very rarely watch TV when I’m off adventuring in my motorhome.  The natural world around us is full of awesome entertainment and you can learn stuff too.  The Philip’s Guide to the Night Sky will make a great gift for lovers of the outdoors.


Available from Amazon at £3.15

I always find that I can get quite muddy when I’m camping and it’s not a time for wearing your best clothes.  That goes for watches too and I find that a cheap watch does just as well as an expensive one and it doesn’t matter if it gets wet or scratched.  This Constant Quartz Watch comes in at just £4.99 from Argos.


Last but not least, you can’t beat a good tin of travel sweets for the journey, and Simpkins have been making tins of travel sweets since 1921, so they must be good.

I like the look of their Apple, Rasberry and Cranberry Drops at £1.63
