Christmas gift guide 2023: Ed’s picks

When it comes to stocking fillers or small (but thoughtful) gifts for friends and family, editor Lisa Potter shares a few suggestions aimed at those who enjoy motorhomes, caravanning, and camping.

Hydragun Atom

If you’re hiking, biking, or adventuring this festive season, this compact massage gun can offer instant relief for aching muscles (or even help relieve backache after hours behind the wheel of your motorhome). This particular model is surprisingly quiet and lightweight with a comfortable ergonomic grip.

Tina M hats

Sun protection with style, thanks to Tina Madsen-Walcott, who launched her hat brand after completing her degree in biochemistry. This highlighted her awareness of the damage that the sun can cause, resulting in designer hats that protect the head and neck from harmful rays.

Wallace Cotton gifts

Celebrate the RV lifestyle with this fun Journey collection from Wallace Cotton, with delightfully festive-themed designs featuring hand-drawn vintage vehicles.

Sky Gazer towels

Forget about huge beach towels that take up valuable space when you’re travelling. These compact Sky Gazer towels are sand-resistant, quick-dry, and come with their own matching bag (as well as a fantastic array of designs).

Avène sunscreen

Always a practical gift, as there are many people who forget that last season’s sunscreen may have passed its expiry date. The Avène collection is SPF 50+ and was recognised as one of the top-performing sunscreens by Consumer NZ in its 2022 sunscreen test.


Odds are if you’re enjoying Christmas in your RV or camping, a real Christmas tree may not be part of the experience. These pine-scented hanging scent stems are the next best thing – just pop a few around your gift pile and enjoy the aroma and feel of pine needles. Plus, they can double as a freshener in your kitchen or washroom areas.
