But you may choose to simply modify to smaller or travel size version – like some of the following ideas:

• A tabletop tree: perfect for either small scale decorating if artificial, or opt for a live version and plant afterwards!
• Christmas pillows and a throw blanket
• Seasonal candles, an Advent wreath, or a string of LED Christmas lights around the windows
• Holiday window gel stickers for decorating, like these

Incorporate Your Favorite Traditions

Many favorite holiday traditions can be easily modified to be travel versions! Your favorite holiday read-alouds can be loaded onto your tablet or Kindle, and you can bring your favorite Christmas movies on DVD (or stream them online).

If you love baking or decorating cookies, bake the cookies ahead of time and bring along your cookie frosting, sprinkles, and other decorating items. Just think about your favorite traditions and see if there’s an easy modification to make to take them with you in your RV’s pantry!
