There is nothing more exhilarating than traveling the world all of your life, seeing all of the sights you have ever wanted to see, and meeting more people than you could possibly imagine. This level of experience and travel can often make it hard for people to give gifts. After all, how do you wow somebody who has seen it all?
The trick isn’t to try to best their experiences, but to allow for more!
If you have ever traveled through a number of airport making more connections than you can count then you know that getting your bag straps and cords tangled is one of the most annoying and inconvenient experiences that form part of travel. Until now.
Wireless headphones that can give you a solid 12 hours of listening are available and are not very expensive. These make for a great gift idea that allows any world traveler the ability to easily listen to music and relax as they make their way around the world. All of this is done without the need to remove and untangle cords each time that they go through a security checkpoint.
Nothing says adventure like diving into a crystal clear pool or wading through a small running river. Of course, nothing says DAMN more than dropping your precious items into these lovely places. Head to your local travel or camera store and pick up a good quality waterproof satchel or case that the recipient can use to store their valuables are they uncover hidden underwater gems.
Hire a Car
Backpackers are often stuck traveling by bus. Not because they want to but because it’s the cheapest option. If the person you are buying for is about to embark on another journey, check out the Groupon Coupons page for Sixt and treat them to a few days or car rental. It doesn’t have to be a fancy car, just a simple ride from point A to point B instead of a long bus is a great gift to give a traveler.
If there is one thing that a traveler loves, it’s seeing their family and friends back home. This is made possible through technology, with Skype being the most popular. But did you know that Skype can also be used by world travelers to easily and cost effectively speak with friends and family back home using their land line? Skype credit is a great way to give a work traveler the gift of speaking with their family and friends back home without worrying about their shoestring travel budget.
A New Travel Case
There is a common misconception amongst nontravelers that world nomads enjoy a rough and broken set of luggage. Right down to the beaten up travel case they take on the plane with them. The truth of the matter is that their bags have taken a beating during the course of their travels and they don’t have the money to spend on a new set of luggage. If you are buying for a traveler who has recently returned home, take a look at the state of their carryon travel case. If it looks like it’s about to fall apart then you just found the perfect gift idea.
Just because you don’t enjoy traveling the world doesn’t mean that you can’t give a world traveler the perfect gift. If neither of these ideas takes your interest, head down to your local camping or travel store and take a good look around. Look for small and easily transportable ideas that you can see being a benefit.
