Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat thanks to gluehwein and cookies! While Christmas is really the time for family and being of good cheer, let’s be honest, you’re probably going to buy presents for someone (and going to totally double up for those with birthdays nearby, right? RIGHT?). So I’ve compiled a list of great gifts for the traveler in your family or circle of friends.
The Fashionable Traveler
Not only is this scarf adorable and will keep a traveler warm in cold locations (like a plane), but it also has a secret pocket to hide your passport in! No one will think to rob a scarf.
The lady wearing these Jeffery Campbells can clunk around with a map on her feet. If she gets lost all she has to do is look down. Ok, maybe not, but at least she’ll look cute while lost.
The Savvy Boozehound
Let’s be honest, drinking in many countries and large cities is expensive. So, here’s a few gifts for the party traveler amongst you.
There are a myriad of fun flasks out there, but few that incorporate travel. If you’re drinking from a flask people are probably going to assume you’re an American, so proudly confirm their suspicions with this.
Collapsible Wine Bottle
Have you ever been moseying about the beautiful countryside, and thought, This would be a beautiful place for a picnic with some wine and cheese. If only I had a collapsible wine bottle so I didn’t have to lug all that glass around. Just me? Either way, this is a great alternative way to transport wine/liquor. Never miss out on that wine infused picnic again!
The Photographer/ Travel Blogger/ Videographer etc.
Carrying around a a heavy camera bag gets really tiresome and identifies you as a tourist almost as quickly as wearing that camera around your neck and sporting a Hawaiian shirt. For the budding and pro camera jockey look no further than these:
This will keep your precious traveler from getting a hunchback and keep their equipment dry. And look! There’s a place for your tripod and tablet too!
Because some of us just want to look cute and fashionable while shooting photos.
The Fitness Enthusiast
Ear Buds and Armband
Running in a new city is a great way to see the sights and stay in shape, but wires flap around annoyingly. End the wire flapping! I like this one by FreePeople, but I’m sure there are plenty, less expensive and equally cute ones.
It has a J. R. R. Tolkien quote. Need I say more?
Encircle runs a bit pricey, but this cardi will take your travel lady from drab to fab, from cold plane to fun and games. It also is great from those who like to travel light but still look cute.
So there you have it. What are some travel items you’re lusting after this holiday season? Share in the comments below!
