What do you get the person in your life who prefers to live out of a suitcase, or spend every last dime on great trips? It’s safe to say, most people bitten with the travel bug aren’t big on “stuff”. It’s the experiences which shape their world – and that in turn makes them really terrible people to buy gifts for. Here are a few gifts, even the most discerning traveler will appreciate…
Stressing over battery life is a buzzkill for even the very best trips. Help the traveler in your life out, by gifting one of the many international power adaptors. If the person happens to be an Apple freak, there’s a cool set specifically for Apple products.
3 Month CLEAR Airport Fast Track Trial
CLEAR is one of the coolest things in travel right now. Unfortunately, the only catch is it’s temporarily US only. CLEAR gets you to the front of the security line, bypassing (everyone) by using retina technology to identify trusted travelers. It’s like TSA PreCheck on steroids, and easy to enroll. There’s a free three month trial going on, so maybe the best gifts are free…
Scratch Off World Map
Scratch off maps are the new “it” gift, and rightfully so. Relish the places you’ve been by scratching them off the beautiful colored maps one by one. We love the Wond3land maps but there are great options all over the web. For $20 and up, it’s a lasting gift which looks awesome on any wall.
Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
On a plane full of screaming adults, or babies – there’s nothing better than pressing the “noise cancellation” button. Turn any noisy airplane into a blissfully quiet place of comfort and crank up the tunes. There are great options at many price points, but we find it tough to beat the Bose QC35.
Flight001 Passport Holder
Passport and document holders are a crucial piece of international travel. Flight001 makes some of our very favorite holders, and has a great sale going on. For just $5 you can give someone exactly what they need to keep their passport and documents safe, even if it rains the entire trip!
Clear TSA Approved Make Up & Toiletry Bag
Many countries require liquids, gels and aerosols to be taken out placed in a clear plastic bag. Enter these brilliant clear make up and toiletry bags, which allow you to comply without batting an eye. Once you’ve tried one, you or your lucky gift receiver will never travel without it.
Ricoh Theta V 360° 4K Video Camera
Sure, it was really cool when Ricoh launched a 360° camera that took great photos, but this Ricoh Theta V camera captures 4K video in 360° degrees. You can quite literally share everything you do, from every angle. You can give someone a full tour of anywhere on earth, and all you need to do is press share.
