Looking for a unique gift to give a traveler in your life? Tired of the same old luggage tags and passport covers? Check out our top picks for unique Christmas gifts that will not only inspire your friends and family’s wanderlust, but they will actually use on their next trip.
LaCie Rugged Hard Drive
For travelers who are on the go, you will want a hard drive that can protect your photos and documents even on your most adventurous trip! This hard drive can be covered in dirt, dropped from 2 meters and is designed to handle almost any situation. After a week of adventuring and capturing incredible photos, you don’t want to risk losing them. We think this rugged hard drive is the perfect gift for any active traveler to back up their photos!
Fujifilm Insta Mini Camera
Most avid travelers are particular about which camera they carry with them. So instead of trying to pick out a specific camera or lens, give them a fun instant camera for them to take on their next trip. An instant camera will add a different style of photo for them to document their trip. In our digital world where we can take thousands of photos, these instant photos add a uniqueness and privacy to the images since they can’t be reproduced.
Packing isn’t the fun part of traveling, but you can help a fellow traveler stay organized this season by gifting these packing cubes! They will change the way you pack in both time and fitting everything in your bag. For those who are overpackers, they help limit and organized what you bring with you. Either way, these make a great addition to any traveler’s luggage.
Travel Power Strip
Stuck in the airport and can only find one outlet? Maybe your hotel room has limited or hard to reach outlets? This compact power strip will help you charge everything at once, or you can share one outlet with your entire family so you can all stay plugged in at the same time. This simple power strip has saved me many times when my electronics have all been on low battery while I’ve been traveling and now I never leave home without it!
Scratch Off Map
This scratch off map is a fun way to show off where you’ve been and set new travel goals with the destinations you haven’t scratched off yet.
Encourage your friends and family to document their adventures so they can pass them on to the next generation. Save postcards, travel maps and receipts to help you remember favorite destinations and meals you ate on the road. Record the type of foods you ate, and what the different country’s streets looked like as you walked down them. What smells greeted you when you walked out the door? What new experience did you have and what lessons did you learn that you want to return home with? These small details will be one of the many reasons you will be glad you kept a travel journal.
Help your family bring home their vacation memories through the eyes of a GoPro. It will capture the action of snorkeling underwater with a sea lion, hiking across lava fields and standing face to face with a Galapagos Tortoise. You won’t be left without options since there are multiple different models to pick from, find one that fits your needs and bring it on your next adventure with you!
