We all know that one person who is a travel enthusiast. They’re the ones who truly get an adrenaline rush once they hit the road, and the urge to complete the journey and collect experiences is what keeps them going. The ideal Christmas gift for these travel junkies would be an outing across the globe, but unfortunately, we’re not all millionaires. So, we’ve put together a list of 10 exciting Christmas gifts for a travel enthusiast.
Travel pillows are a blessing for someone who is always in transit. We’re not talking about regular pillows, but ones with magnets and suction cups. Some of them are truly cutting-edge, with soft fabric and made to fit every sleeping style and mode of travel. Basically, it’s the Christmas gift that will make your journey more comfortable.
If you know some who has a habit of packing everything but the kitchen sink, just in case, a digital luggage scale could be a blessing. It would help them to avoid that embarrassing moment at the airport where they usually find themselves filtering the items. You wouldn’t want them to leave their favorite pair of trekking shoes or the lenses of their camera behind, would you?
Some good inspiration never hurts, does it? You can gift a set of books to your friend, depending on their taste of course. The Backpacker by John Harris or Wild by Cheryl Strayed are some good Christmas gifts options to fire up that wanderlust.
A scratch-off map is generally a world map covered with gold or silver foil. Or you could gift a map of any one desired country/continent they wish to travel to like India, Asia or Australia. It’s similar to a checklist, just a little fancier. These Christmas gifts are fabulous for globetrotters who like to plan. A map hung on the wall of their bedroom will compel them to travel and later, will also take them on that nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Save your traveller friend from the pain of identifying luggage on the conveyer belt at the airport or at a hotel reception with personalised luggage tags. You can even customise it by putting their name on it or any other identification mark of their choice. Leather tags with their name engraved on it are another good option.
Shoes, data cable, toiletries, make-up, and charger – the list is endless. There’s so much to carry, but a single bag can be tad messy. What about gifting a travel organiser with multiple compartments and pockets? The distribution of items in it will make life much easier as it is a great Christmas gift for people who spend half their lives living out of their suitcase.
Funky Passport Covers
Frequent travel means wear and tear of your passport. And oh! The hassle of running around the airport with a handbag in one hand and passport in another can also damage the passport cover. Funky and durable passport covers are not only cool but also pack a double punch with comfort and convenience. Try looking for pre-designed covers with quotes and travel pictures on it.
Customized Artificial Jewellery
Your globe-trotting friend has this idea of looking cool and beautiful in every picture she’s in. Any day, a pair of nice earrings or a chain with a compass pendant would be a great choice for a Christmas gift. You will also find tons of travel theme-based jewellery, like a bracelet with a compass or a map.
From watching a breathtaking sunset at a lake to visiting an ancient fort or temple, walking the quaint streets of a new city, or just having dinner by the riverside, experiences stay for a lifetime. Gift your friend a memorable trip from V Resorts to any of the 150 offbeat places which will help them rejuvenate and collect memories for life.
Photography these days is so intangible and digital, but instant cameras are making a comeback. It makes a thoughtful Christmas gift for those who like #throwbacks, have a strong Instagram game, and or just like pasting pictures on their fridge.
These were just some of the thoughtful Christmas gifts for your traveller friends that we could think of. Are there any you’d want to add? Tell us in the comments below.
