If you know someone who loves to travel, then you’ve probably already found out that they’re incredibly hard to buy for. Their packing space is precious whenever they’re setting off on another adventure, and they usually have everything they need anyway! However, if the traveler in your life has got a birthday or other event coming up, there are still a wide range of gifts that they’ll love. Here are four great gift ideas for the traveler in your life.
GoPros have exploded in popularity in recent years, especially among people who have been bitten by the travel bug. These compact little cameras could be the perfect tool for the traveler in your life to catch all the incredible things that happen to them on their trips. They’re waterproof, durable, and there’s a huge range of accessories you can buy to make the camera even more functional. The massive popularity of the GoPro brand has allowed their cameras to become more and more advanced over the years, and the latest versions could be the perfect thing for anyone who’s about to see more of the world. It’s not the cheapest gift you could choose, but it will certainly be appreciated!
With phones, tablets, and maybe a shiny new GoPro, charging everything the average traveler carries with them while on the road can be a bit of a nightmare. This is especially true if the traveler in your life tends to stay away from the more “touristy” areas of their destinations, and likes getting off the beaten track. When you’re deep in the jungles of Cambodia and need to check in with the folks at home, a solar charger could be your best friend. This gift is not only exceptionally useful, but will also help the traveler in your life stay green.
Traveling the world is one of the most exciting and fulfilling experiences anyone can have, but there’s one major drawback to it: it gets very expensive! While the traveler you’re buying for may not be able to live one continuous, globe-trotting adventure, you can still bring them tastes from all over the world, and keep them exploring from the comfort of their home. From pungent Swedish surströmming to the refined taste of Kikori Japanese whiskey, there’s countless foreign foods and drinks that your traveler would love to try. Just be careful of the websites you order from, as trading standards vary greatly from country to country.
A New Language
By now, the traveler you’re buying for may have a taste for trying different languages, and will almost definitely have a favorite. If you know what this is, why not get them some materials for learning it? Companies like Rosetta Stone offer great software bundles that make it easy to learn useful terms and phrases in almost any language. If you know your traveler will take to it, this really is a gift that keeps on giving. If you’re stuck for ideas, go for more widely-spoken languages, like Spanish, French and Russian.
