Top 4 Outdoor Christmas Decorations for your Caravan

Decorating your caravan and turning it into a real life Santa’s grotto is a worthwhile idea when on a winter caravan holiday. Not only will it help to spread festive cheer, but it will also help to make your caravan more easily recognisable as parks get busier and the nights get darker. Here are 4 key outdoor decorations to take on any last minute caravan holidays which will transform your caravan into a Winter Wonderland.

Clear Rope Lights

Available to buy from most shops this year, rope lights provide a practical solution to the hours spent untangling fairy lights by being virtually impossible to knot! Whilst available in different colours, clear rope lights are perfect for adding some classic Christmas sparkle, as well as being versatile to use for other occasions on other short breaks in the UK taken throughout the year. They can also be easily shaped to line your caravan or awning perfectly, making it an essential decoration for illuminating your caravan.


You don’t have to have a heavy wooden door to provide a perfect location for a beautiful wreath; a caravan door will do just fine! Choose a garland that’s suitable for outdoor use and can withstand wind and rain, free from ribbons or materials that are likely to get soaked. There are also several wreaths on the market that use LEDs or are battery operated which will light up your front door throughout your break and provide your home away from home with some festive cheer this year.

Christmas tree

With so many trees on the market it’s hard to choose an ideal Christmas tree for your home, let alone which one to use when on a caravan holiday. Don’t spend too much money however, and choose either an LED tree or a pop up tree as both require minimum assembly. Make sure whatever you buy is suitable to be placed outside and will not disintegrate as the temperatures drop, or position your tree in your awning where it will keep dry so you can decorate as you please and place presents underneath.

Outdoor decorations

Penguins, reindeer, Santa – there’s so many ideal figurines to choose from when deciding what to place outside your caravan to create a festive scene to bring joy to your family and onsite neighbours. Choose something which lights up rather than anything inflatable in case bad weather shortens it’s time in front of your caravan. You could also buy a light-up Merry Christmas sign, or other slogan available in either clear or multi-coloured lights to place on your caravan if it’s likely that space will become an issue.
