What do you get a traveller? This question can be a difficult one to answer, as many travellers like to pack light or would love to be gifted money in their destination’s currency. While practical, such gifts can lack personality. Consider the following gifts that are perfect for your globe-trotting friend or family member.
1. A travel journal and organiser
Travel memories deserve more than being jotted down on a smartphone, especially when there’s a risk of not having charge or access to a laptop, etc. Gift them with a beautiful travel journal that can be personalised with their name. This is ideal for a travel blogger who may need to jot down important information while on the go! Additionally, whilst seasoned travellers may say they have the airport and boarding process down to a T, it can still be useful to have an organiser. Having your passport, printed boarding pass and visa all in one place can make a travellers life easier and much less stressful. Some organisers also have extra space for you to store that travel journal you just got them!
2. Reusable straws
For the eco-friendly traveller, gift them with portable and reusable straws so that they can reduce their carbon footprint while on the go. Be sure to find ones that are compact so that they can easily place them in their bag or pocket.
Not many people look their best when it comes to flying. The air can become dry, causing our skin to become dehydrated, serving us that “haven’t slept for days” look that needs days to recover from. Give them a little pot of moisturiser that can be easily stored in their carry-on for skin-saving duties.
4. Home Decor
An avid traveller may be whizzing around all over the world, but they still need a nice house to come back to. Get them some beautiful travel posters to put on their walls to remind them of all the places they’ve been to and explored. You can get a travel poster for almost any city or country, so check out where they’ve been and get them a poster based on their travels for a truly personal gift.
5. Courses abroad
Many travellers love to throw themselves into the culture of where they are visiting. This means they like to learn the language, eat the local food, and live like a local too. If this is the case, then treat them to French language courses in France with French Language Holidays, a cooking class in Spain, or sake tasting in Japan.
6. Coffee of the world subscription
For the traveller who is currently at home, recuperating from their latest excursion, gifting them with a coffee subscription may sound a little odd. But what if the coffee subscription sent the person coffee beans from all around the world?
7. A new blanket
When travelling, whether it’s on a plane, boat, coach, or even in a car, being comfortable is important. Thankfully, a warm blanket can provide all the comfort someone needs. The only thing that can top a warm blanket is thoughtful memory quilts. Not only will these quilts keep someone warm and comfy, but they can also be a reminder of home too. Featuring all of their favourite pictures, they can have a piece of home with them wherever they may be.
8. A charging hub like no other
We’ve all been there. Too many electronics and not enough charging spots to keep them juiced. What can you do? Luckily, you can now get charging hubs with multiple USB ports, making your life a lot easier. You can also get them a universal travel power adapter, meaning they can say “so long” to the days of swapping and buying new adapters in every new country they visit.
