2020 – what a year it has been. I always do a Christmas gift giving guide of 5 things for Christmas for the traveller. But this year is different from those of the past. What do you get a traveller who can’t travel? Books to dream of the vacation that isn’t happening, a ticket to an event that’s cancelled, a gourmet cup of coffee to a closed cafe. These are our unfortunate realities right now.
The 2020 gift-giving season is different on so many levels. With the current restrictions, there are no parties to attend, no big family celebrations, the seasonal shopping trips to the mall are a lot quieter this year (I for one, haven’t been inside a mall since the first days of March – a rarity for sure), so where do we go? Off to the cyber world! You can google almost anything and can get most everything delivered right to your door now. What useful item can the traveller find online you ask?
Masks right now are the top purchased item. Why not give an RV enthusiast an RV mask? Etsy has lots of homemakers sewing up a storm, so you’re sure to find one.
Well, with the current situation we find ourselves in, places like Fraserway RV are having a rental fleet blowout – a great time to discover the joy of RVing. Now I know, not everyone is looking for a high-ticket item like mentioned above, but they do carry a variety of great items in-store, like this chair that is in popular demand – the Kuma Outdoor Gear Lazy Bear Heated Chair. It’s a folding 15 lb chair that features the exclusive ADDHEAT Control System that can hold up to 350lbs.
But what about a gift card? Did you know that most RV Resorts offer gift certificates? If you have an avid camper on your list and you know where they camp, why not give a gift card to that RV Resort? You know they will love that gift for sure and use it too.
It’s always nice to reflect back on camping trips. Camping usually has the best memories for adults and kids. Sometimes though we forget the small details about a campsite and camping trip! With a camp journal the whole family can record all the details of each trip in one handy book so that you never forget. You can refer back to see what you liked about the campsite and how you rated its facilities. Make a note of your adventures at the campsite and all of the great people you met there so you can keep in contact.
The whole idea of going out travelling for a day trip or a week’s holiday is to relax. Making a big entrance to the beach scene is this Poolcandy Splash Runner Motorized Inflatable Lounger which is made from reinforced vinyl and plastic, can hold up to 300 pounds and helps you cruise around the lake with ease as it has dual 66-watt motors with independent controls – a definite relaxation vessel that is sure to be a hit in the summer of 2021.
