Looking for holiday gift ideas for travelers?
For your hard-to-please frequent flyers and world (or world-weary) travelers, here are some great holiday gifts for travelers, minus the fluff and cheese, lame gift cards, and stuff everyone’s got, or no one needs…
Postcard luggage tags – Simply write your own name and address on the postcard and slip it in/attach to their luggage. (A great way to introduce a surprise trip as well!)
Hair clip that can slip past TSA AND can help you/her escape the next time you run into trouble – Even fix the car in the middle of the Sahara.
Slick hair clip has a cutter, screwdriver, wrench, ruler and more.
International SIM card accepted in over 200 countries – The only OneSIM card they’ll ever need. A bit more than other cards for calling but free incoming and almost completely worldwide as well as compatible with most smartphones.
For women, All white everythimg stylish 10″ high fleece-lined boots. (Click on “color- White”) If you want to be stylish while need a rugged, weatherproof boot, look no further than L.L.Bean! Extremely limited quantities. They also have a non-fleece 8″ high version for warmer climates. Premium full-grain leather that sheds rain and snow, and looks amazing doing it.
Speedsleev to quickly attach sunglasses or reading glasses to bags, straps, purses, and bikes. One of the best, easiest ways to attach a water bottle or glasses to any kind of strap and have it be safe and slip-proof. We love ours. Have three on 3 different bags.
Still looking for a good travel gift for Christmas?
GoPro Hero or Hero 4 Black camera. Search Youtube for GoPro. Need we say more? You’ll be loved forever by purchasing thsi or any number of the myriad attachments for your adventure sports or travel geek.
Handicrafts and bags and saris from the Village Artisan – Handmade and fair trade sewn and assembled crafts and apparel that are absolutely beautiful and high quality. If you like ethnic clothng and jewelry/accessories, one visit and you’ll be sold.
The best travel shoes ever will be worn even when at home (and maybe never taken off) – Sanuk. We are sold on Sanuk. Stylish, comfy. Easy-on, easy-off at the airport,…we even wrote a glowing review at https://www.gninsurance.com/blog/news-and-helpful-links/best-shoes-for-travel/
Lastly, really, he/she’s already got it?!
Check out this Kayak-in-a-box that also started out on Kickstarter! The size of a suitcase, the carrying case itself is the folded-up kayak. At at about 26 pounds, it won’t cost you a lot to transport it. Currently for sale on Amazon. You may also want to check out the Advanced Elements hybrid folding frame/inflatable frame kayak while there.
You can also call a concierge at the hotel (if you know where you’re loved one is staying), and often buy tickets to a show or ask about other entertainment in the area. They would be happy to help and it would be a nice surprise on the pillow when they arrive or to be handed at the front desk – No need to give travel apps, or a gift card this Christmas.
