The VW Bus is a prominent fixture in our family.
It all started with my husband, Andy, who is an owner of a VW Bus and also a member of a bus club. When we were dating, and even after we were first married, I’d accompany him on camping trips and outings in the bus.
Now that we have the boys, we don’t use the bus as much. It doesn’t have seatbelts in the backseats, so if we want to take it anywhere, I have to drive the boys in the other car. They do, however, enjoy camping in our yard, and we often have a few other buses and friends join us. Plus, they love to go to car shows and see other buses.
Since I knew Andy and the boys loved VW buses, I also started to buy bus-themed gifts. It made gift giving and shopping so much easier…and a lot more fun.
So, I decided to share some of our favorite VW Bus items. We own almost all of them!

For the Home
The most recent addition to our collection is this VW bus shower curtain, and I’d have to say it is way better than I expected. The colors are really vibrant, and it looks more like a painting than a photograph.
We have a “vintage” bathroom (our house was built in the ’50s) with a yellow bathtub and mint/teal green tiles. We did replace the toilet, but kept the rest of the color scheme and even painted the walls and door to match. When Andy mentioned we needed a new shower curtain, I got to searching.I couldn’t believe how well this one matched the colors we already have in our bathroom. It really is the perfect update.
Now these aren’t technically decorations, but we do have them both displayed in our house. The first Lego set is a little pricey, but my husband loved it when I gave it to him. The other set is called a “surfer” van, but it definitely gives off that bus vibe, and the price is right.
VW Bus Gifts To Wear
My husband can never find his belt, so when I found this one, I knew it would be perfect. Not only is it a subtle VW bus patter, but it’s made from recycled materials, and the buckle is a bottle opener!
Our friends got my husband this…let’s just call it what it is…fanny pack! It’s seriously so cute in person. I’m not sure if he’ll ever wear it around his waste, but it’s still awesome. He could definitely wear it as an over the shoulder man-purse.
VW Bus Gifts for Travel
Whether your traveling by plane or driving your bus, this next group of products is perfect for you.
First up, a duffle or sports bag, followed by a bag for your toiletries. Even though they look similar in size in the picture, the duffle is much bigger in person.
Finally, we have the soft sided cooler bag.
For the Camping Trip (with or without a VW Bus!)
This box cooler is amazing. We don’t, unfortunately, own this as it’s a bit out of our price range. So, if anyone is looking for Andy’s birthday present in April…
This blanket is also great for camping. It’s stylish and functional.
We have the kids’ size tent, and it’s awesome. I can only imagine this adult-size version would be even better.
