With less than 4 weeks to go until Christmas, the time has arrived to start working on your xmas gift list, and if you are one of the sensible ones who avoided the madness and mayhem of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, why not dig out your laptop, dust of your credit card, and prepare for a weekend shopping spree!
Christmas comes but once a year, and while it provides us with a great excuse to catch up with family and friends, indulge in those naughty but oh so nice Christmas treats, and get into the festive spirit with more spirits than we should, it can also be a stressful time of year, especially when shopping for those who are always difficult to buy for…
Of course, you could go for the good old socks and chocolates combo, which never fails to please, but if you want to treat your loved ones to something extra special this year, you might just find what you are looking for right here in 5 of the Best Christmas Gifts for the Travellers You Love!
A Selfie Stick
No self-respecting traveller would head overseas without a camera, but the fact is, our Smartphones are far more practical for those impromptu selfies! Whether you’re travelling alone, or with a group of friends, a selfie stick is essential – making it the perfect Christmas gift for boys and girls who love to travel the world.
Language Learning Software
¿Hablas español? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Parlez-vous français? No…? Well, your travels will be a whole lot easier if you speak at least a little bit of the local lingo, and one of the easiest ways to brush up your skills is with some language learnings software such as Rosetta Stone. A great gift for globetrotters!
A Power Bank
This may sound a bit boring, but whether you are trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, or sailing the Fiji Islands, a power bank is an essential piece of equipment for travellers. A good quality power bank will have enough juice to charge an iPhone, a Kindle, a Camera, and a Tablet, so treat them to the best, and you’ll be more likely to hear from them while they are away!
Noise Cancelling Headphones
One of the best Christmas gifts you can give to world travelling friends is a pair of noise cancelling headphones such as Bose QuietComfort, Sony MDR-1000X or the über stylish Beats by Dr Dre. They’re not cheap, but they make long flights and bus rides much more bearable, and they look pretty cool too!
The Gift of Travel
Finally, if the jetsetter in your life has all the above, why not give them the ultimate travel gift, the gift of travel! We’re not talking about a round-the-world flight ticket (although, that would be very nice!), you could simply book them an overnight in their favourite city hotel, a European weekend break for you both to enjoy, or give them a gift voucher from a modern online travel company that allows them to choose whatever they like!
