The Ultimate Gift Guide – Kids!

Young ‘uns

Whether it’s because you drag them along with you to “get away from the TV” or you’re racing to keep up with them on their bikes we’ve got something for your kids this Christmas.

This junior airbed is a handy addition for tents, awning annexes and relatives living room floors. Tested this autumn by the Caravan Accessory Shop sub contracted toddler, Freddy (16 months), who rated it “better than a hotel travel cot” (he slept nearly all night in it – a miracle!)






The Pink Dotty and Bugs sleeping bags are junior sized, so they will be snug as bugs and the bags fold away smaller – win win!



I Spy Camping (other titles available) is always a hit, keeping the kids entertained and buying the parents some time to relax… or get involved as well. Warning: Can get very competitive!




Animal torches are always popular. Designed for kids, these have pump handles to create energy for light. Ideal for reading, finding your way to the loo in the dark and midnight feasts!




We have a great selection of sledges suitable from ages 2+. Fun for all the family!





Now, if they’re off to a festival next spring or summer can I be painfully honest? They’re not that interested in hearing about the tales of your youth, when you were a festival attending, long haired, flares wearing hipster. Sorry. However they WILL be very interested in these gifts…



The OLPRO Knightwick 3 berth tent is the ultimate in festival comfort! Spacious, waterproof (5000 h/h), quick and easy to pitch… What more could they want?



It’s not pretty… but it’s practical! They might wrinkle their nose when they unwrap it, but they’ll be grateful when they see the size of the queues! The eloquently named Need-a-Loo could well be a hit this Christmas.



It was impossible to pick one rucksack – so here’s link to our whole collection! The humble rucksack is an ever useful piece of kit for teenagers. College books? Sleepover stuff? Numerous changes of clothes? Festival packing? Holiday? Hiking? It’s sorted with a ruck sack!



Encourage them to be eco-friendly (and not ask for driving lessons for a little bit longer) by making cycling more pleasant, with this waterproof cycle cover. A dry seat makes for a happy ride.



If they’re moving out next year (or perhaps they already have) The Single Electric Hob is ideal for their student residence. Thermostatic control from simmer to boil, and just 1000w.



We hope you enjoyed the Ultimate Gift Guide for Kids!

Christmas is on it’s way!

… We’re very excited here at the Caravan Accessory Shop!

Not long now until we can put up the tree, deck the office out in tinsel and change the phone ringer to “We Wish you a Merry Christmas!

(OK, that last one’s probably not going to happen.)

If I can persuade Bruce to wear a Santa hat while serving customers it’ll be the best year yet.

We’ll have more Gift Guides coming soon, but in the meantime you can always check out our GIFT category on our website. So many ideas, from stocking fillers right up to Big Gifts.

We now also do Gift Vouchers! Online or Paper, for any value you want! Email us at or pop into the shop to get one.

Stocking Fillers

Easy access to their favourite can of drink with the Table Clip








All Dads are Tennis Pros with our ever popular Executioner









If he hasn’t got the real thing, indulge his VW passion a little with this 1962 Model



If he’s a bit of a Chef

This Cadac BBQ is the top choice for gourmet caravanners everywhere – it’s a gas-powered, portable 3-in-1 outdoor cooking system.  He’ll be the envy of the whole campsite!

This Dad’s no Technophobe

This In Car Digital Video Recorder is uber cool. Record up to 16 hours of journey time. The recorder features night vision and motion sensing activation so can be used on every journey.




If your Dad doesn’t ever want to miss a game (or an episode of Strictly…) then this is the treat for him. The 21.5″ Vision Plus Digital TV is specially designed for life on the move and has a built in DVD player as well.





Eco Warriors

Eco Dad loves a solar panel, so how about a reliable and robust Solar Hub to provide illumination and power when and where you need it.



Light up his Christmas with The LUMI USB – a super bright rechargeable LED light for use anywhere without mains power. LUMI includes a built in Li-ion battery that, when fully charged via USB, will give up to 8 hours of light.

Top 5 Winter Tips – Caravanning in the Cold

So if you’re NOT packing up for the winter this post is for you.

Perhaps if you’re somewhere warm then you’ll get by as usual, I promise we are all very envious back here in chilly Britain!

If you think you’re tough enough for UK Caravanning in the Winter, these tips should help you avoid frostbite.


Tip One – Eliminate Damp

This is so important when it’s cold and you’re in the caravan. Damp can cause mould, rotting and is also pretty smelly. When you’re staying in a damp caravan you are breathing in mould spores which can really aggravate respiratory diseases like asthma. Also, damp air is cold air! Our Damp Buster will suck dampness from the air to keep things fresh and (slightly) warmer.


Tip Two – Don’t Freeze

Frozen water carriers are no fun. Our Insulated cover – which will fit the Aquaroll, Water Hog, Water Porter and Aquarius water carriers – will reduce the risk of your water freezing.


Tip Three – Snuggle Up

Keep cosy with our Carnelian Double Layer Sleeping Bag. With 500 g/m2 of filling these quality sleeping bags are extremely comfortable and warm. Each bag is a generous 94 cm wide and 200 cm long, and you can zip two together to make a double.


Tip Four – Warmth on Low Wattage

Our Low Wattage Fan Heater has a 1000w or 2000w settings and three fan settings. Ideal for a little extra warmth without overloading the electric.


Tip Five – Stay Upright

When out in the ice it’s easy to slip, but now it’s also easy to stay upright! Stretch these Snow Grip Soles over your shoes for instant grip. Available in Mens or Ladies/Youths sizes.


You can find all these products, plus many more, on our website at! We ship internationally and quickly!


Happy Winter Caravanning!
