I can’t believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away! How’s your Holiday shopping going? I never learn my lesson, every year I’m rushing to the mall to get last minute gifts and stress myself out trying to find everyone the perfect gift.
In case you’re like me, I wanted to put together a list of the best gifts to get for those people in your life who love to travel. These are some of my personal favourite things that have enriched my life and have made my travel experiences around the world so much better.
How to Travel the World on $50 a Day by Matt Kepnes (Nomadic Matt)
I previously mentioned this book in our “How to Book a Hostel Guide” but I needed to bring it up again. This was one of the main books that gave Josh and I the extra push we needed to travel this year. It’s filled with a lot of great budget and planning tips for those who are looking to travel for a longer period of time. So, if you know someone in your life who needs that little push as well, then this one is a winner!
Destinations of a Lifetime by National Geographic
This book will have you adding new destinations to your bucket list right away with over 200 locations included! It also makes such a great coffee table book and would be perfect for anyone who is a fan of beautiful travel photography.
Saje Pocket Farmacy Remedy Kit
I’ve recently become obsessed with Saje Products. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are a Canadian-based company that makes 100% Natural Wellness products like skincare and essential oils. The Pocket Farmacy contains 5 essential oil blends that can help boost the immune system and provide relief from headaches and stress. Perfect for any traveller who is constantly on the go!
This one is a bit of a splurge but it’s definitely worth the investment. The Canon g7x was the only camera I traveled with this year and I absolutely loved it. I used it to film all of my Youtube videos and the quality was amazing!
It’s also great for taking pictures and is super easy to travel with because it’s compact and lightweight. Another really cool feature is the flip screen which makes it a perfect camera for vlogging and taking selfies (you know I like a good selfie haha).
SandDisk Memory Card (Class 10, 64 gb)
You really can’t go wrong with this gift. Memory cards are one of those things that are essential for any traveller but are super annoying to buy for yourself and if you’re like me you’re always running out of space, so the more the better!
Eagle Creek Pack-It Packing Cubes
Hands down one of the best purchases I made in 2016! These cubes completely changed my packing experience and I’m never looking back. This will help any traveller keep their suitcase or backpack organized and prevent then from shoving items into random sections to the point where you don’t even know where anything is. Even if you don’t get these for anyone, you need to get them for yourself. Do it!
So there you have it, my list of the best gifts for travelers! I could probably go on and on, naming a bunch of other gifts but these are the ones that have stood out to me the most this year. I hope you find this helpful and good luck with the rest of your Christmas shopping! (Wish me luck too!)
