Xmas gifts for your RV partner

My wife loves our RV trips, but she often forgets to transfer a key "necessity" or two from our house to the motorhome when we're heading out.


Thought I'd remedy that this xmas with a shopping basket full of goodies that she can keep in the RV all season instead of having to pack and unpack them every trip.


All I've come up with so far is a hair dryer and a makeup mirror. What are some other items worth including?

That is probably going to be somewhat "partner specific", but my wife keeps a hair dryer and makeup mirror in our rig, so you're probably pretty good with those. Couple other things we keep in the camper - bath robe, bedroom slippers, flip flops or slip on shoes, jacket, rain coat, some "extra" toiletries like shaving cream, hair spray, disposable razor, extra toothbrush, toothpaste (in case someone forgets something).

Whatever it is that she packs and unpacks is what she needs.

A good flashlight, and of course the appropriate can/bottle openers are a must

I am trying to get my wife to keep a spare set of clothes and favorite hobby stuff on board. I have all that on board. Wife loads up the rv with bags with fresh clothes and hobby stuff. RV has a washer and dry so no need to load it up with fresh clothes. After 18 years it is starting to work.

Women's fashions (and sometimes sizes change)- that's why my DW packs so much each time....with the exception of jackets and sweaters. She uses a "pick" for her hair that she forgets all the time.- I have a spare in the med compartment. She always brings too much other stuff but I can't prevent that from happening.

As someone else pointed out - whatever she is packing up is what she needs.

But I've got myself in big trouble buying kitchen stuff I thought she needed. Having said that maybe a corkscrew? Selection of coffee and snacks?

A very nice umbrella would be a nice addition to things to keep in the rv.
