Traveling the globe is the best way to open your mind and explore cultures you never knew existed. Of course, it’s also the best way to make it difficult for your friends to buy you gifts, considering that you have seen it all and have bought the t shirt! If you know the pain and are in the position of needing a gift for a travel enthusiast, below are some great starters.
I remember a time that I flew from Sydney to Los Angeles. The flight was so exciting that neither myself or a fellow passenger on the plane with the same checked bag paid attention when we visited the baggage carousel. Long story short, my bag ended up in Peru and I had nothing more than a bag full of ladies clothes. All of this could have been solved e paying attention at the airport, but also with a simple luggage tag.
Head to your local department or travel store to find a brightly colored novelty luggage tag. There is no better present than a bag you can’t misplace!
Share Their Team Pride
When you do a lot of travel you start to miss your friends and family. When this happens, it’s the small things that you can think of that make you smile. One of those things is often a local sports team that you and your friends viciously support. Check out the Groupon Coupons page for Lids for a range of sport based hats that make the perfect gift to remind a traveler of their roots.
Travel Size Everything
When you are jumping between hostels, hotels, and camping, you don’t always have the ability to carry around a dry bar of soap. For this reason, I always find myself hoarding single serve toiletry items when I can. A great gift for a traveler is a box of travel sized items, such as soaps and shampoos. While it may seem like a strange gift, the ability to pack these into their travel case will make your traveler very happy during their next adventures.
As you shop, look for more small travel sized items that you can collect into a small gift-basket of travel options.
Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones
There isn’t any part of the travel experience that is quiet. From the moment you get to the airport until the moment you arrive at your destination, you can expect noise. This often makes it hard for travelers to sleep in strange places, such as airport wait lounges or even on the plane. Let your recipient sleep anywhere they are with a pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones. The lack of wires makes this item perfect for traveling while the sound-blocking nature prevents that screaming baby from stopping a good flight sleep.
Just because you don’t travel the world yourself doesn’t mean that you can’t get a great gift for somebody who does. Take the items on this list into consideration the next time that you are on the lookout for a perfect gift and you can rest assured that your gift will be a sure winner!
