Christmas is finally approaching. Streets have brighten up, shopping malls play our favorite Christmas songs and we start to grasp some subtle wishlist hints from our friends and relatives. Christmas is one of the best occasions to give (and receive) thoughtful and personal presents from our loved ones who have known us like the back of their hands. So, if you are looking for excellent gift ideas for someone who loves travelling then, you have come to the right place. Here are my top gift ideas for a globetrotting loved one.
1. Scratch Map
Personally, I would love to have one of these scratch maps. It is a great mnemonic of all your travel memories around the world. For starters, you can choose your own country and for frequent travellers abroad, the world map. Literally, you get to see the bigger picture of how much ground you have covered since you started travelling. Plus, it also serves as a great piece of home decor that you can display in your own room or in common areas, it is a great conversation starter when you have guests over.
2. Passport Sleeve
For someone who crosses a lot of border, your passport needs utmost (and stylish) protection to keep it safe and intact. A personalized passport sleeve is great gift idea for those tight in budget but still uphold thoughtfulness. You can choose the color of the sleeve, add the name of the traveler and embellish it with travel icons to make it more stylish.
I would choose a backpack over suitcases any day of the week. Not because I feel nostalgic of the school days but I believe it is the more practical option. Personally, I recommend the exquisite bags from MAHI Leather which are up to 50% cheaper than high street prices . Their bags are made to order with full grain cow leather, sturdy brass fittings and robust YKK zippers. You can even have some initials embroidered to add personal touch.
4. Luggage Tag
Speaking of personal touch, another great and practical gift idea is a personalized luggage tag. With high cases of lost or misplaced baggages nowadays, it literally pays to have your contact details written somewhere in your bag. So, in that note, a luggage tag is definitely a great fit. You write down their contact details, get their favorite travel quote or choose a brighter color to make your luggage stand out, mainly in the claim carousel.
