It’s almost Christmas!!! Ok, we’re still in November but time flies, right? And the last minute shopping to buy Christmas presents is quite stressing, so it’s better to think about it in advance. I made a list of 10 gift ideas for travelers. If you have to buy a gift for a traveler, you will probably find what you need in there. If you are a travel lover yourself, pin it and share it with your family and friends! Maybe one of this items will be under the Christmas tree! 🙂
A world map made from cork, it’s super cool! I bought one from Miss wood and I love it. You can pin in green the places you’ve been to, and in red the places you want to go. To personalize it, I pinned pictures of my travels.
A small portable printer is perfect to print pictures in Instax formats. To pin on the cork map, or to make a nice album!
Kit for the plane
The must-have for long-haul flights: an eye-mask, a pillow and earplugs. Very essential to sleep on the plane. I bought mine on Amazon.
If you know someone who takes the plane quite often, he/she will be super happy to receive a flight voucher! In Europe, the low-cost company Ryanair sells vouchers from €25.
When putting a passport in a bag, it can be damaged. But it’s not going to happen with a passport holder! In leather, plastic, with images… there is plenty of choices. Wanderlust designs have nice ones!
Even if everything is findable on Internet, it’s always cool to have a book with all the information: practical info, iteneraries, restaurants etc. I like the ones from Lonely Planet and Un grand week-end (in French).
To write stories, to let other people write something, to stick pictures, to collect souvenirs… a notebook is very useful for travelers. If you find one with a travel design, it’s even better!
Portables lenses for smartphone
All travelers would love taking amazing pics with high tech photography material. But that’s super expensive. With a lower budget, portables lenses for smartphone are very nice! And it can fit in a small bag!
The perfect gift for the adventurer, to record video and take pictures during sportive/extreme activities, like rafting, climbing, parachuting, snorkeling…
Gift card for a camping shop
Tent, mattress, sleeping bag, pillow, backpack, light, shoes… There is a lot to buy for newbie campers/backpackers. A gift card for a camping shop would help to reduce the expenses!
