Christmas Gift Ideas For A Traveller
Do you know someone who travels a lot? Or they are planning a big trip for 2015? Yet you just don’t know what to give as a present. Well here are some of my Christmas gift ideas for a traveller. Speaking from first hand experience I know they will love them.
The perfect Christmas gift ideas for a traveller
Timing is everything
Firstly, I adore my digital, atomic solar powered casio watch. Whilst it is not very expensive it is packed with features I find necessary whilst being someone who travels the world.
Firstly it has a world time feature. A few simple clicks of a button and I’m in the time zone of my destination. In the meantime a couple of clicks and I’m back to my home destination time.
With a built in alarm function I can also combat any jet lag issues of missing appointments.
I can be on the road for a while so I love that my watch is solar powered, I never need worry about the battery running out. Even when there is no sun, I can tell the time as I have the watch set to illuminate on the turn of my wrist in the night time.
The G-Shock feature also means it is very hard wearing against accidental knocks on my adventures. Whilst also being water resistant I can scuba dive and swim with it too.
I dare say some of you have read my airline lounge reviews with some envy. Yet there is no need to be envious, they can be accessed by all.
Why not treat your travelling friend to a lounge visit at their departure airport? Surely this is a perfect way to begin their journey? You can buy a single day lounge access pass. Or alternatively give a real treat to a frequent flyer. You can give them special year long access to lounges worldwide with a Priority Pass or Lounge Access membership.
Still not sure if the above will cut it? Then as an alternative gift idea for a traveler why not buy some holiday vouchers and let them decide.
Book it for them
Make yourself a big hit this Christmas time. Either plan a romantic break away with your partner or treat your buddy to his/her plane ticket and hotel. You’ll always find great flight and hotel options with the travel search engines.
Travel neck pillow
Long haul flights and coach journeys can be a real pain in the neck if you are not comfortable. Don’t let your travelling buddy suffer in economy class. Gift them a travel neck pillow and they’ll sleep like a baby in no time. Read more about why this is the best flight pillow that I have ever used.
Travelling long distance means bringing things with you. If you travel often then you may need a replacement or upgrade to your luggage. Christmas is the perfect time to shop at one of the biggest luggage selections online. Is that Samsonite I hear calling?
If conventional luggage is not appropriate then maybe the perfect Christmas gift for a traveller is a new backpack? Finding the right size and fit is crucial to ease the carrying of a weight on your back.
Power in a small size
Undoubtedly the best travel accessory I bought in 2014 was my amazing Macbook Air. It is incredibly thin, light and very powerful. This thing starts up in seconds and is very fast. It is the perfect size to fit into any hand luggage and won’t way you down.
I now do all my blogging around the globe from my beloved Macbook Air. For me it is goodbye Windows and hello Apple.
Keep the memories
With such rapid and fancy developments of technology today it is easy to permanently keep the memories. Treat your travelling friend to a new compact yet high quality camera. They can then share their wonderful experiences with you via social media in no time.
A quick word or two
You don’t have to weigh them down with hardbacks though. If you gift a kindle then they can carry thousands of books without even the weight of one Andy McNab special.
I do know from experience that sometimes I just don’t want to read anymore. I want to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey with some calming music. So the perfect Christmas gift for a traveller of this kind has to be some high quality headphones.
These are just some of my suggestions based on first hand experience of these products. What would you add as the perfect gift for a traveller?
