Christmas, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Arbor Day, there are so many days on the calendar where it’s
expected you buy a gift from someone special in your life. As hard as it to figure out what to get your girlfriend, imagine how hard it is to shop for a traveler.
When someone is always setting off for a new destination it can be difficult to figure out what they need and what they’ll just have to find storage space for. The usual thought is cash, which is nice; don’t get me wrong. But why not get the jet-setter in your life something a little more interesting?
Here are 10 great gifts for travelers.
1. Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Jacket
Have a friend traveling to Bucharest to see the Christmas lights? Treat them to a super warm down jacket. I actually have one of these at home in Chicago, it’s my yearly winter coat.
The Uniqlo jacket weighs next to nothing and folds up small enough to fit into a carry-on, but will keep you warm in the coldest environment and it has sizes for both men and women.
2. KUIU Ultra Light Backpack
Do you know someone who loves to backpack? Give them the gift of a large but light waterproof backpack for their travels. The bag itself weighs only 22 oz. and has a 6000 cubic inch capacity, enough space for long trips.
3. The Chrysalis Cardi
Help the woman in your life pack light with the Chrysalis Cardi. This versatile garment can be worn multiple ways as a shirt, cardigan or wrap, and dress. And with the cost of checking luggage only going up, the on-the-go girl will thank you for this gift.
4. BioLite Wood Burning Camp Stove
This is the perfect gift for the outdoorsman or camper in your life who doesn’t want to give up their electronics just because he or she is in the woods. This high tech camp stove burns wood for heat or cooking, but also comes equipped with a USB charger powered by fire, so they’ll never be without their phone.
5. eBags Gift Card
Good luggage is always appreciated by travelers, but let your loved one choose their own style and size by
giving the gift of an eBags gift card. eBags offers savings on hundreds of luggage brands like Samsonite, Eagle Creek and High Sierra, to name a few.
6. RFID Blocking Wallet
An emergency credit card is an important part of traveling; unfortunately, high-tech thieves have graduated to portable skimmers that record the RFID of credit cards as they walk past. Help your friend or family member protect their information with an RFID blocking wallet.
7. SWIMS Penny Loafer
Comfortable water-proof shoes are important for anybody who like the water, but who wants to spend their entire vacation in Crocs? The SWIMS Penny Loafer is both functional and fashionable whether you’re on the beach or a boat.
8. Universal Adapter
A must have for anyone who travels internationally, a universal adaptor has the advantage of working anywhere in the world, so your traveler won’t be phone-less or kindle-less.
9. Weekender Bag
A good medium size duffel bag, also known as a weekender bag, is a must for business travelers or those who love weekend jaunts. They’re roomy enough for a few days worth of clothes, but meet most airlines’ carry-on restrictions.
10. Amazon Gift Card
Still not sure what gift to get your traveling loved one? Then go for an Amazon gift card, they’ll be able to
get whatever they need, and you’ll know you helped give them the gift of travel.
