Has the holiday season shopping madness caught up with you yet? For your Christmas list this season, why not treat your the caravan in your life to a well-deserved winter spruce-up?

We at CaravanTimes have discovered the must-haves for the caravanner in your life this festive season.

Ceramic caravan teapot

If you fancy yourself a good cuppa tea, and let's face it we all love our tea, why not splash out on a caravan teapot?

Priced at only £12.99 on eBay, one of these would make a fantastic and unusual Christmas gift.

Gesture sensitive LED headtorch

The best way to light up the winter darkness, this handy gift allows you to switch the headtorch on or off with a simple wave of the hand - ideal for when you need to switch over gas bottles at night. Grab one from Waterproofbox.co.uk.

Stained glass motorhome suncatcher

A truly beautiful and classic gift that can be displayed from the window of your caravan, this trinket catches the light of the sun and can make your motorhome glow with precious winter sunshine. Priced at a mere £3, it can be found on folksy.com.

Family day out at Go Ape

While you're off caravanning, why not get adventurous and nurture the explorer within you? An established adventure company, Go Ape offers you the chance to explore the forest from its floor to its tree tops via zip-wires, cargo nets and even Tarzan swings. Gift vouchers are available from £5 to £60.

Classic caravanning calendar

Get a head start on the coming year by purchasing a colourful, caravanning calendar. It may even inspire you to plan a few more trips. Andy Jenkinson's inimitable collection of classic tourers is our favourite, and costs a mere £6.99 from J Salmon publishers.

With a bulging stocking, you are now well and truly ready for the festive season ahead and so is your caravan.
