There are a lot of things that come in collapsible form now, it is pretty nifty. If you are looking for a gift idea for folks with campers and RVs, dorm rooms, loft apartments, camping or minimalists, collapsible gift ideas might be just what you need!
Also, because they are fun things! I had no idea that many of these existed, but some of them are really fantastic ideas!
This is the bucket which inspired the whole post. Great for an RV, great to use for cleaning, but not take up a ton of space!
Cupcake carriers are MASSIVE but also very useful. This one gets rid of the giant-thing-to-store problem, but still includes a tiered display rack and a large capacity. It comes in several colours, too.
These collapsible measuring cups are just plain cute. As a bonus, they take up a fraction of the cupboard space!
Funnels always seem to need half a shelf to themselves. No matter what you are using them for, this set folds nearly flat and can be propped up against a wall, or have other things set on top for storage.
These teeny tiny funnels are perfect to pop into a bag, or leave in your work desk.
This colander wins for “most fun colours!” hands down. On the list of collapsible gift ideas, it is one that nearly everyone would benefit from owning! It takes up a tiny amount of space, making it perfect for kitchens everywhere, from NYC lofts to RVs to suburbia.
Is this a nifty invention or what? The fold flat kettle! Available in several colours, it is a great addition to camping gear, or again for a small apartment or dorm room. The base is metal so that it can take heat from electric or gas stoves.
Ahhh, the huge, messy cupboard full of Tupperware. Get this collapsible lunch box for your kid or grandkid. Or, get one for everybody!
Safety first! This collapsible traffic safety cone fits nicely into your vehicle, for use in an emergency. It’s also great for work sites that move around a lot.
Java to go, in a pancake size disc. This is great for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Genuine joe on the go.
Use the java drip coffee maker with this collapsible mug, also made by GSI.
Do you take your pets on the road with you? These collapsible travel bowls might be exactly what you need, so that slobber filled bowls don’t take up half of your packing space.
Had you seen all of these neat collapsible gift ideas before? I can think of a lot of uses for these things, I bet you can too!
