Choosing Christmas presents for friends and family can be difficult, which is why buying something related to a hobby or interest is always a good idea. If you are looking for a Christmas gift for someone who loves to travel, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve come up with a list of great travel related gift ideas to inspire you – whether you are looking for a fun Secret Santa gift for a work colleague, or a luxurious gift for that special person in your life.
Combining several small items which are related is a great way to make a budget gift a little more special. How about wrapping up an inflatable-neck pillow, an eye mask and some cosy travel socks for a friend who goes on lots of long-haul journeys.
Silly gifts such as anti-travel sickness tablets, children’s inflatable armbands, mini-toothbrush and toothpaste or a fold-up sun hat are all good stocking fillers – providing the recipient will appreciate the humour.
Many of the best-selling beauty and skin care brands offer gift-sets of travel-sized products. This is ideal if you know the recipient already uses and likes a particular brand. If you aren’t sure which brands to purchase, another option is to purchase a cosmetics case and fill it with specially designed refillable bottles – excellent for those friends who are environmentally aware!
Travel related books are an excellent choice whether the recipient is well-travelled or longs to be. From the humour of Bill Bryson’s books, to the informative guides produced by Lonely Planet, a browse through the travel section of your local book shop will give you plenty of options to choose from.
We all know difficult it can be to spot your bag through the crowds of people at the average airport luggage carousel. Make sure your friend or family member’s luggage stands out from the crowd by ordering a personalised luggage strap.
An extravagant Christmas present for a loved one who enjoys wine, as well as travel, is to rent them a share of a vineyard in Spain, France, Italy or Turkey. The recipient will not only receive a delivery of quality wine, but also have the opportunity to visit “their” row of vines.
If you’ve noticed that your loved one’s suitcase has seen better days, why not purchase on of the sleek and sophisticated luggage designs which are now available. Light-weight and durable, the lucky recipient will be grateful for your thoughtful gift every time they open the case to find all contents unscathed by the journey!
