What you need to know about great travel and adventure gifts for that person in your life
We all know 2020 has put a screeching halt to travel. That dreamy European vacation you and your boyfriend had planned last summer has been temporarily stowed in the upper glove compartment until further notice.
The good news is you can double-down on planning. If you’re anything like us, planning and preparing for the adventures that lay ahead is almost as fun as the adventure itself. Picking the right travel gear is essential to any trip. (You know, the ones where the only face mask we wear on a plane is the silky one for our eyes.)
Until that day comes, treat yourself or that special person that loves to travel with some of these great travel gifts. Please fasten your seatbelt for some cool gift ideas for people who love adventure, travel and unique experiences.
Here is our list of travel gifts perfect for that adventurer in your life.
Sustainable Carry-On Bag
A good carry-on is everything when it comes to traveling. It’s time to throw out that outdated, dilapidated carry-on bag and upgrade to luxury luggage made by Paravel. Known for sustainable and eco-friendly luggage, bags, and organizers, this brand is dedicated to exploring the world while minimizing their impact on it. From backpacks to belt bags and everything in between, there is something for everyone.
Portable Phone Charger
This is ideal for the traveler who is always running late for a flight and his or her phone is teetering at 1% battery life. At only $21.99, Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger is Amazon’s Choice for one of the smallest and lightest battery packs on the market.
Extremely compact and providing almost three and a half iPhone 8 charges, this convenient gift will destress any traveler without burning a hole in your wallet.. It’s really a win-win here.
Tinggly Travel Experience
Sometimes, the most memorable thing you can give someone is an experience. And while you can’t really be sending all your friends on surprise trips (Oprah, if you’re reading this, we don’t mean you), you can give a Tinggly’s Best in the World activities package.
How does it work? It’s simple. You choose a gift box, Tinggly delivers the eVoucher or box, and your giftee gets to choose an adventure! This will take their next vacation to the next level. There are hundreds of experiences from around the world to choose from, which is guaranteed to make lasting memories.
Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow
I know what you’re thinking. Another thing to carry while traveling? But this isn’t any traveling pillow. The Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow is versatile and convertible. Unlike most traditional airline travel pillows, it’s…wait for it…twistable and contours to almost any shape or position!
The luxury memory foam cushions the neck, head, and shoulders making it more comfortable in those airline (or train, bus, car) seats. It also relieves any painful pressure points for ultimate relaxation. Time to sit back and relax, courtesy of you.
Carry-On Cocktail Kits
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (no judgement), we all know this isn’t a novel gift item, however, these Carry-On Cocktail Kits never fail to disappoint. And don’t worry, they sail straight through security, ready to be enjoyed in the air. We’ll cheers to that!
Do you prefer a Moscow Mule or an Old Fashioned? Oh, a Margarita you say? No problem! There are different cocktail kits suited for each flyer. With a mini bottle of liquor (ordered from a flight attendant of course), any traveler can become their very own in-flight mixologist.. It’s a personal, one-seat bar that will keep any traveler entertained and satisfied on the journey.
Adventure Challenge Book
For those who love adventure and an element of surprise, the Adventure Challenge Book is the way to go. It’s a mystery scratch-off book with 50 creative adventures. You scratch one off and it tells you where you’re going and/or what you’re doing!
There are three different editions (friends, couples, or family) and each book doubles as a journal to document the experience. When completed, it’ll be a keepsake with lifelong memories.
People’s Choice Beef Jerky
If you’re anything like us, travel snacks are essential. And when we say essential, we mean all travel plans will be ruined if the travel snacks are left at home. People’s Choice Beef Jerky is the perfect travel gift idea and here’s why.
For starters, beef jerky is a great on-the-go travel snack. It’s compact, delicious, and will keep you from getting hungry (or hangry). It’s an emergency snack stash that won’t spoil because it’s completely dried and shelf stable. It’s been travel tested, we take it everywhere both domestically and internationally.
Traveling can be exhausting and the next meal is never guaranteed on the road. Beef jerky will keep any traveler fueled for those long travel days.
There is one problem. You just might have to share with others because they’ll be salivating from wafts of beefy deliciousness throughout the plane.
We have a wide variety of flavor profiles to suit every type of jerky connoisseur. From sweet to spicy, and everything in between, there’s something for everyone. Choose an assortment of flavors so they can taste test while they travel. At only $6 a bag, you can bundle flavors for a satisfying travel snacking experience.
Such a Great Gift!
