With Christmas less than two weeks away, I thought now would be a good time assist those of you who are a bit stuck on what to get the travel addicts in your lives…
While it’s the thought that counts, it’s always nice to receive something you can actually use! I’ve compiled a list of things I think most travellers would appreciate, perhaps you might even treat yourself 🙂
These things are fantastic, basically a giant poster of the world and the countries are covered in foil which you scratch off once you’ve visited it. Not only does it look really good displayed in your house but it’s also a great way to keep track of the places you’ve visited so far.
Road Tripping book
While travelling the world is always going to be amazing, the real journey begins in your backyard! It’s so important to explore what you have at home, I know I’m blown away whenever I travel throughout NZ! A great way to encourage people to see their own country is to get them a book about the awesome road trips you can do through it…A goal I’ve set for myself is to go to at least one place I haven’t seen in NZ each year – I’ve done well this year and visited 4!
I love being able to listen to my favourite music while I’m on holiday, especially one where I’m just lounging around on a beach or at a park. A blue tooth speaker is the perfect way to get your sounds cranking without having to use headphones.
Lonely Planet has profiled every country in the world and put it all into a book entailing what to see, do and eat there, it also has some beautiful photography through it. This book would make an incredible reference for all travellers!
Toiletry carry case
I’m a traveller who likes pretty things so if your travel addict doesn’t…Maybe skip the next couple of gift ideas! I love being able to put my moisturiser, shower get etc in a cute little carry case and slipping in into my suitcase without having to worry about in leaking through my bag.
Travel themed bag
When exploring various attractions, most of us like to take a small bag with us to keep our personal items in, I recently came across the most gorgeous bag, it’s small but still big enough to keep the essentials in and best of all it has a map on it 🙂
For those times when you can’t carry your laptop or tablet with you, a travel journal is perfect…You can still take note of those important details that you don’t want to forget later!
Travel themed laptop case
This one is quite self explanatory me thinks!
This book brings you 500 of the world’s most memorable attractions and they’re ranked…With some of the lesser known places even making the top 10. It’s a great read and will make you want to travel to these places even more…I’m sure your travel addict would love to check it out!
I hope my list has given you a few gift ideas 🙂
Happy Travels and Merry Christmas, Priti X
