The best thing that you can give someone is something useful or that makes it easy to do the things they like to do. If you have a traveler in your life (or you are one yourself), and you’re looking for the perfect gift, here are 16 gifts that a traveler will love.
Kit for sleeping during a trip
A pillow that goes around the neck, or “ostrich pillow” (great for travel), ear plugs, eye mask … everything necessary to fall asleep during the trip and recharge your batteries for the adventure that awaits.
A manual scale is necessary for weighing your bags before heading to the airport.
Rechargeable battery and/or universal adaptor
In an emergency situation, you need a phone with battery.
It’s easy to lose your way or deviate from the path, especially when you’re in an unknown place. A compass can really help you find your way.
Windbreaker / Rain coat
Strong winds and rain can attack a traveler at any time. Recommended jackets are good quality and weigh very little, easy to carry but very durable.
Cork board map
Or, a globe where you can mark every place you visit. Seeing so many places to travel, the person can feel even more motivated to explore.
Saving is one of the most important things a traveler can do. A money jar can be a motivator – you know you need to fill it up for your next trip.
A notebook or diary where you can describe every experience and retain memories forever; the next bestselling book could even start here.
Rough use camara
This is essential for an adventurer; the perfect companion that can follow your lead without suffering any damage.
An album not only for collecting photos, but for any type of souvenir like postcards, stickers, leaves, stamps, etc.
A good multi-use backpack with lots of compartments for carrying everything necessary during a trip. There are even backpacks that can wash clothes – an excellent option!
Something that the traveler would like, and that you can have personalized with a name, character or phrase.
Book or e-Reader
A good book that inspires them to travel or can entertain them on long trips. An e-Reader is also an option, so they can select and save the books they want to read.
Canteen with water filter
When I first saw these canteens, I thought it was an amazing idea. They are individual water bottles with a filter, which help you avoid dehydration when camping or exploring.
A must-have for every traveler. The chance to go camping could arise at any moment, which is why having a good tent on hand is of utmost importance.
I’m leaving this one for last, because it’s a really good idea. Many travelers have to spend hours and hours at the office during the week. A mug can remind them of what they have to look forward to on the weekend or bring back memories of a trip they took. It’s great motivation to finish out the work day.
I am of those people who thinks that you don’t need a special occasion to give a gift. So, don’t wait for a birthday or Christmas to give someone a tool that could help them on their next adventure.
