Christmas is this Sunday, which means it’s crunch time for those last-minute shoppers. I’m not going to lie; I’m one of those people who will wait until the week of Christmas to start shopping for gifts. Procrastination is a terrible habit and it’s sad that I know of so many people that wait as well. I’ve even witness people rushing to find gifts on Christmas Eve or will even go as far as waiting until after Christmas to purchase marked down items. In defense of the shoppers that wait, sometimes you just have no idea what gifts to buy your family or friends for Christmas. So this post is dedicated to those that need to purchase last-minute gifts, and they’re all geared towards travel of course. The gift ideas listed below are a combination of items that I currently own and items that I would love to be a owner of.
*Hint for all my loved ones that’s reading this..haha :).
So without further a do, here are some last-minute Christmas gift ideas for the traveler:
Multi-Purpose Travel Wallet
I absolutely love multi-purpose items while traveling because it solves the issue of bringing along extra baggage. This multi-purpose travel wallet come with pockets that can hold two to three passports, a slot for your cell phone, credit/debit cards holders, I.D. slot, key holder, a pocket for cash, zipper pouch for change, pen holder, and more. The multi-purpose travel wallet is essential for organization and it comes in various colors to choose from. Great gift for Mom, Grandma, Daughter, Sister, Cousin, Aunt, Wife/Girlfriend, and so on.
Scratch The World Board
For both new and old travelers, a Scratch The World Board would be a gift that’s much loved and appreciated. In my opinion, it’s personalized and those type of gifts are the best! With the Scratch The World Board, old travelers can reminisce as they mark all the places they’ve been. For new travelers, the Scratch The World Board could be used as a way to motivated them to visit as many places as possible until their board cannot be marked anymore. If your loved one already owns a board or you prefer a more modernized gift, a world map MacBook case or laptop sleeve are other options to consider. Also, another cute gift idea would be a world map canvas painting to hang in their home for decoration.
Airbnb Gift Card
In my opinion, a gift card is one of the top go-to items for last-minute shoppers and perfect to give to your loved one with particular taste; like myself. For the picky traveler or anybody living on this earth, an Airbnb Gift Card would make an amazing gift. Traveling isn’t cheap so lending a hand towards reducing expenses is one of the sweetest gestures you can do for your family member or friend that travels. As I stated previous, the gift suggestions listed will include items that I wish to own and the Airbnb Gift Card would definitely be an item I would jump for joy over!
Travel Organizer Compression Pouches
If your loved one travels frequently for long periods of time, travel organizer compression pouches would be an essential item for them. They’re great for organizing, separating clean clothes from the dirty ones, and it also helps avoid overpacking. The travel organizer compression pouches comes in handy for the backpack explorers or those that prefer to travel with carry-ons.
Not only are luggage tags cute and affordable, they differentiate your suitcase from everyone else’s belongings just in case it gets lost or stolen. The great part about these particular luggage tags is that they come in a pack of seven. So you can gift for seven of your loved ones, place them in Christmas stockings, or give them all to one person so they can have double or triple luggage tags on their suitcase. It would be fun to accessorize with the cute colors they have available.
Travel Toiletry Bag
This gift idea is dedicated towards the men that we love dearly and think that a toiletry bag is unnecessary. Majority of the guys in my family don’t put much thought into packing, which is why they always leave important items behind; like soap and toothpaste! They may feel it’s a waste of money at first but after they use it a few times traveling, they’ll admit you were right all along. Most importantly, they’ll love and appreciate you for looking out for them. This gift would be great to give to your dad, brother, husband/boyfriend, uncle, and whoever else. The toiletry bag comes in various colors that appeal to both men and women. You can also include travel bottles with the bag as well as to make packing more convenient for them.
GoPro HERO4 Silver
If you’re willing to spend a little money, purchasing a GoPro HERO4 Silver would make an awesome gift for your loved one that’s a traveler. I don’t know of anyone who didn’t like capturing their adventures, and the GoPro HERO4 Silver is the perfect tool to start off with. It’s compact, easy to use, and produces high quality footage of videos and photos. I’m a happy customer and I’ve captured video footage of my excursions in the Dominican Republic, Las Vegas, and more. In my opinion, it’s a great camera to have for traveling and if your loved one already owns a GoPro HERO4 Silver, another option would be to purchase additional accessories to go with along with it.
Hope this was helpful & Happy Holidays Everyone! 🙂
