Van Gift Guide 2020

With Christmas around the corner, here at The Van Insurer, we think that everyone deserves some festive cheer.

It’s never too early to celebrate the van-driving buddy in your life and, if you’re stuck for ideas, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our Top 10 Gift Guide.


Novelty Flask

Keep that coffee warm and let everyone know how awesome you are with a good ol’ dose of sense of humour!

This stylish travel mug is definitely the perfect gift for the proud van driver in your life.


Safety tool

We hope you never have to use it but having an escape tool handy could be life-saving.

Equipped with a seatbelt cutter and window smasher, this compact tool is a great stocking filler for those who travel long distances in their vans.



We all know someone who treats their van like a dumping ground. This waterproof, foldable in-van bin is perfect for snackers, stashers and serial receipt-keepers.

It’s lightweight, leakproof and compact, making it practical and hygienic for even the messiest of drivers.



If you know someone who can’t start their day without a coffee, then this is the gift for them.

Compatible with Nespresso and L’OR capsules, this portable espresso machine makes that 6am start just a little bit easier.


Key Finder

Does the van driver in your life constantly lose their keys? This could be the perfect stocking filler for them!

Simply use Bluetooth to call your Tile Mate on your keys and if they’re within a 60m radius (which, let’s face it, they usually are!) they will ring.


Winter Car Kit

Sometimes practical is better than personal, which is why we love this AA approved, Winter Car Kit.

Complete with a snow shovel and emergency foil blanket, you can rest assured your van driving mates will be safe if they get caught out in a blizzard!


Echo Auto

Bring Alexa everywhere you go with the Echo Auto. Designed specifically for vehicles, this version of the popular Amazon Echo can hear you over music, air conditioning and road noise.

Just ask Alexa for news updates, music stations and more all while keeping both hands on the wheel.


Wireless reverse camera

Is the van driver in your life notorious for bumping their rear? This wireless reverse camera could be just what they need to put an end to those bashes!

Not only will it give peace of mind while driving and searching for a parking space, but its 170° viewing angle helps park in tight spaces and spot unexpected obstacles.


Secret stash

Whether it’s spare change or a second set of keys, deter any thief by keeping items in a secret storage unit!

Because, let’s face it, who’s going to break into a van and crack open a tin of beans?



We know winter in the UK is often grey and miserable, but when the sun decides to make an appearance it’s always better to be prepared.

Treat your van-driving loved one to a pair of polarized sunnies this Christmas so they’ll look stylish come rain or shine.
