Travelers are a unique breed. They want to experience life to the fullest, and value those experiences over materialistic purchases. They spend their time dreaming of their next trip, not the next sale at the mall. Seems difficult to know what to buy for them, right? Don’t worry, though, because there are some gifts for travelers that will make their travel even better. If you’re looking to buy something for the avid traveler in your life, here are some things that will make great festive gifts this season.
To make it even simpler, we have a gift for you! Read on to find out more about how you can get discounts from ScoutMyTrip!
Gifts for your Travel friends
1. Portable Charger
A must-have for people who are always on the go; portable chargers are a blessing. We use our phones, tablets, cameras and other devices while traveling, and a portable charger will ensure you don’t have to keep hunting for a charging point. A charger helps charge your devices. You can therefore access any important documents on your phone that you may need on your travels, as well as stay in touch with family and friends. Just make sure that the charger is small yet power packed, and see if you can find something that also provides quick charge capabilities. After all, the lighter it is, the more likely they are to make full use of your thoughtful gift.
2. Travel Pillow
Travel pillows, specifically neck pillows, make traveling long distances so much easier. Especially on long-haul flights or road trips, they provide a lot of comfort. If you’re buying gifts for travelers, this should definitely be at the top of your list. Before you buy a travel neck pillow, do a bit of research though. It should be easy to carry and pack, it should fold down into a small size, and it should provide comfort and support. If you can find an ergonomic pillow, that would be your best bet while buying festive gifts for travel lovers.
If you’re planning to get something for an adrenaline junkie, this is the direction you should be looking in. A Steripen is a portable, mini water purifier. It helps sterilise water by means of UV light, and can purify a 1 litre bottle of water in just 90 seconds. This is one of the perfect gifts for travelers who like to go on road trips and lose themselves in nature. If they find water from a stream, pond, or public water source, the Steripen can clean it, so they’ll have access to drinking water! You can also buy add-on filters, which they can use if they come across muddy water.
4. Travel Towel
If you’re a fan of road trips, you would have definitely wandered through rivers and waterfalls, camped in the middle of nowhere, splashed in a lake and walked through nature. For such adventures, you need a towel. You might wonder why we added a towel to the list – of course everyone carries towels! True, but we are talking about a different kind of towel. A compact, quick drying, microfiber towel, which is odor resistant and easy to pack – a true travel towel. Its capacity to dry quickly, and the fact that it is odor resistant, well, that says enough! Everything else is a bonus, and that’s why we recommend it. It’s important to always be prepared during a road trip and small things like this make a big difference.
5. Scratch Map
Scratch maps are very popular gifts for travelers nowadays, and we love them too! After all, we can’t travel all the time, but a scratch map will remind us of all the wonderful places we went to, and the memories we created. On a scratch map, they can scratch off the areas or countries they traveled to, and make their own personalized wall art. It’s a great way to track where they’ve been, and this will make the days between trips happier. All they have to do is look at their wall, and they’ll be reminiscing and feeling good in no time. This is really one of the best festive gifts for people who travel, or even the ones who want to, and haven’t got the opportunity yet. It is a form of encouragement for them, and they will surely appreciate it.
