Insulated window covers

The insulation of a van plays a crucial role in managing the interior temperature in winter. Since heat escapes quickly through surfaces like windows, good insulating curtains are a must! Our window covers are made in Quebec and can be insulated for 4 seasons so you can enjoy the snow in Quebec.

A colorful blanket

We love a good vanlife gift that has more than one function! Our blankets can be used as a warmer layer for sleeping, a picnic cloth or a decorative accessory in the van. We even have friends who add a patch to the blanket for each new national park they visit on the road, a great souvenir they will keep for a long time.

Coffee accessories

What could be more comforting than making a cup of coffee to warm up the van in the morning? There are a multitude of small accessories that are easy to carry and simple to use. With a manual grinder, a gooseneck kettle, a V60 set or a small moka coffee maker and a milk frother, there’s everything you need to start your day with a delicious cup of coffee.

The comfy combo to stay warm

Just because you live in a van doesn’t mean you have to give up comfort – it’s quite the opposite! A few small accessories can make all the difference in staying warm and comfortable in the off-season. So equip yourself with a good beanie, a pair of socks, a hoodie and a pair of fleece pants, and you’re good to go! Quick warning: once you put on this kit, you won’t want to take it off.

Living in a van also means learning to organize your life with very little storage space. That’s why these little folding camping chairs are absolutely perfect for the road! Once stored in their shoulder bag, they can be carried everywhere and easily stored under a seat or in a small corner closet. Having tested them, we can confirm that they are light, sturdy and comfortable at the same time.

The perfect accessory for off-road days

When you like to play outdoors and discover new parts of the country, it’s not unusual to have to take your van off the beaten track. The best discoveries are always made at the end of the most arduous of dirt roads! In such situations, we recommend that you always carry a pair of GoTreads with you! Not only does this accessory help you avoid getting stuck in sand, mud or snow, but it also serves as leveling blocks for your van before bedtime. An essential two-in-one perfect for a vanlife gift!

For digital nomads

A portable charging station

This vanlife gift is a bit more expensive, but definitely essential for vanlifers who work on the road but don’t have an electrical system in their van. This portable station allows you to charge your devices (cell phone, computer, camera…) no matter where you are in nature! Plus, the battery itself charges directly into your van’s cigarette lighter when you’re on the road for long hours.

A mobile hotspot

The vast majority of digital nomads’ jobs require a good internet connection. If you are going to work on the road regularly, we suggest you avoid sharing your data from your cell phone. The trick is to use a hotspot like our MiFi that we always take with us in the van. Just subscribe to a data plan according to your monthly usage and you’re done!

Noise cancelling headphones

When you’re working remotely on the road, you don’t often come across quiet places where it’s easy to work, which is why we always suggest having a pair of noise cancelling headphones in the van! This model allows you to concentrate, regardless of the ambient noise and to be more efficient despite the conversations or music around you.

Just because we work in a van doesn’t mean we have to be uncomfortable! It’s important to remember to adopt a more ergonomic position when working on the road or at home, so it’s best to equip yourself with a few accessories to avoid back pain. This foldable computer stand is super easy to store and takes up very little space in the van. Once installed, it’s very sturdy and will hold your computer in place without worry.

A compact mobile printer

Although much of a digital nomad’s work is done online, it’s sometimes useful to be able to print, scan or photocopy documents. That’s why HP’s small and compact mobile printer is the perfect accessory for working on the road! We like the fact that the printer runs on a battery and therefore does not necessarily require power in the van. Just charge it up before you go on your road trip and you can use it wherever you are.

An Omnia oven and its accessories
