If you’ve traveled a couple of times in your life you know some of the biggest struggles that this comes with. Packing, forgetting important things, being unprepared, or just not knowing what to do in some situations. For all of these problems, there are many items that come with the solutions. The perfect presents for travelers are practical bits and pieces that would make traveling easier or more stress-free. For example, you can find a backpack that fits the flight company’s Carry-on dimensions, so your friend doesn’t have to worry about their bag being too big. You can find some tiny accessories that come in handy when traveling such as compact umbrellas, an external battery charger, a passport holder, or any other gadgets that solve small problems. These would help your friend travel in a more comfortable way and they will always think of you when using those items in their trip.
If you think about it, people travel for the memories, for the stories that come with traveling, and for the good times. If you put all of these things together, you can come up with some unique personalized gifts that would make that person remember their trips even when they’re home. For example, if you know their favorite destination, you can get them some cultural presents from there so that they can incorporate them into their home life. Let’s say your friend has been to Scotland and they absolutely loved it there. Find some Scottish gifts that can be used around the house, this way, whenever they have a cup of coffee, or they pass by an art piece you got, they’ll remember their trip and think of you with joy. You can also go for something collectible such as flag patches from their previous trips, pins, or stickers.
Their next flight ticket
Last but not least, a traveler’s biggest joy is planning their next trip. The easiest, but not cheapest, way to surprise your friend is by getting their next flight ticket. You can buy one just for them or you can gather your friend group and plan a trip together so that you can all enjoy this present. Make sure you organize this as a group presentation, as it can be more expensive than our other suggestions. You can take it a step forward and go on TripAdvisor for some itinerary suggestions as well.
