It’s that time of year again! Thanksgiving dinner hasn’t even rolled around but that doesn’t mean Christmas preparations aren’t in full swing! Every year it seems a bit more challenging to find unique and affordable gifts for those passionate about travel, so here’s a list of 11 Christmas gift ideas for a traveler that won’t break the bank!
Take a visual journey with National Geographic to 250 of the worlds most amazing places! How many have you heard of? How many have you been to? It’s funny how the more one sees, the longer their bucket list grows!
2. How to Shit Around the World: The Art of Staying Clean and Healthy While Traveling (Travelers’ Tales Guides)
Chocked full of helpful facts and peppered with humor, this makes for both a funny gift as well as a practical one. I’m sure you’ve either heard of someone getting sick overseas or perhaps you’ve been there yourself. I know I have! In fact, you can read about my experience here if you think you’ve got the stomach for it!
I think this is such a cute tee. Comes in Mens, Womens, and Youth sizes as well as four colors. Check it out! Perfect stocking stuffer, for a white elephant gift exchange, or for a co-worker or roomie. Everyone loves a comfy t-shirt!
Feel and look great as you or your loved one cozies up in this new garb! Unisex hoody comes in multiple sizes and colors. All around a great gift for the fall and winter months!
So I haven’t played this game – That’s my disclaimer! But I read through all of the reviews and the description of the way the game is played and it sounds super fun! It’s small and easily portable, great for ages 10 and up, and can either be played in 15 minutes or over an hour (just reshuffle the deck of cards for a more lengthy game). I’m thinking I may give it a whirl! If any of you have played or heard anything about it, please let me know in the comment section below!
I’ve come across a plethora of lovely cuff bracelets recently! This cuff bracelet featured is Rosegold and also comes in silver. The quote reads, “Safe trip wherever you go.” I’ll share a few more with different quotes below. They just couldn’t be more perfect for so many ocassions! Not only are they great for the person who goes on an occasional vacation, but also for the world traveler, a graduate, someone who’s moving states or beginning a new career. You’re bound to find one that suits any chapter in life. I just love these beautiful little reminders!
It took me several weeks to choose each of my Osprey packs, my Mountain Hardwear sleeping bag, and my Lowa hiking boots. That’s half of the fun! Researching and getting a good feel for the product before a purchase – no one wants buyers remorse! Travel bags/purses are no different in my book. When I’m in a foreign country (or just another unfamiliar state!) having a solid travel bag from a trustworthy brand provides peace of mind I wouldn’t wanna go without. So I’ve done lots of shopping around, and generally, I’d go with PacSafe here… but if you’re wanting less bulk and more fashion, Travelon is the way to go. This one comes in a few different colors, and there are other styles you can feel free to check out!
8. Tinkle Belle Female Portable Urination Device Teal with case! Discreetly Pee Standing Up Hiking/Camping/Travel/Skiing/Great Stocking Stuffer!
Okay Ladies! Don’t even act like you aren’t excited about this one! The Tinker Belle is basically a new and improved version of the PStyle, and also comes in black. I like a splash of color (see what I did there?) So I preferred the teal. I can’t even express to you how often this comes in handy! If you find yourself throwing back one too many you may just polish off the night by pee-writing your name! Hey, no judgment.
Omagoodness, yes! These are fantastic anywhere and everywhere! I learned early on that watching someone clip their nails as they fly off in every which way is one of my girlfriends’ pet peeves. I’ve watched her on several occasions tear off a neat little square of toilet paper and cut her nails over it. Then she folds it in half and throws it in the garbage. I’ve tried this method, and let me just say that it isn’t as seamless for me. I rather just do it outside! But this handy little contraption takes care of the mess with zero effort. You can purchase the small size, larger size, or both. It’s a must!
This is such a super sweet and colorful mug! Makes for a great addition to the morning, kicking off your day with hot coffee or tea. With the cooler weather coming, add a calming touch to your evening with a cup of hot cocoa.
Adventure knows no age! This is sweet for both young and old. Whether safekeeping a child’s pocket change, fueling the ambitions of a retiree, or anything in-between! This looks quaint and adorable practically anywhere!
Even if you don’t find anything helpful on this list (which would be hard to believe!) hopefully, one or more of these items can at least kick-start ya off in the right direction!
