THE ULTIMATE GIFT GUIDE FOR THE FREQUENT TRAVELER

THE ULTIMATE GIFT GUIDE FOR THE FREQUENT TRAVELER

We are the people that live our lives in airports. We know where Starbucks is located in the major airports around the world, checking into a hostel is a breeze and we make new travel friends in minutes. We are the frequent travelers. However, people like us usually live out of a suitcase. We own at least two sturdy suitcases, a camera bag, backpack and all our childhood possessions are sitting in the attic in our parent’s house. For a traveler that strays away from physical possessions [like me], Christmas can be a HASSLE for relatives. Don’t worry, I have you covered! THE ULTIMATE GIFT GUIDE FOR THE FREQUENT TRAVELER

I currently have two suitcases sitting in my closet. Every time I go shopping, I think of one article of clothing I can give away. It’s a constant give and take process, because every additional suitcase costs $100+ to fly. Do you agree frequent travelers and expats? When gifting for the frequent traveler, think small, light and digital.

1 // AMAZON GIFT CARD

I’m personally obsessed with Amazon. It has everything that I want. It has camera bags, purses and digital eBooks. For those long airplane flights, purchase a few Amazon gift cards to give the gift of reading. Find more Amazon presents HERE.

2 // SPOTIFY SUBSCRIPTION

I love music and spotify is amazing. However, I’m also super cheap, because I’m pulling pennies together for travel expenses. So gifting a year subscription to Spotify would make an amazing gift.

3 // AIRBNB GIFT CARD

I would be overjoyed to receive a present like this, because we [as travelers] spent oodles of money on accommodation. Gift an Airbnb gift card to make that traveler happy.

4 // CREATE A PHOTO BOOK

As travelers, we take thousands and thousands of incredible pictures. What better way to encourage us to share those photos, but by gifting a photo book. Shutterfly offers fantastic options of designs and sizes.

5 // SUBSCRIPTION TO A TRAVEL MAGAZINE

You have several to choose from including Conde Nast Traveler, National Geographic and more! This would be such a fun and great gift to a traveler that spends many hours on the airplane and in airports. Make sure to purchase the digital option!

Christmas gifting for the frequent traveler can be difficult, but I hope these five options spark a gift idea. Traveling with a load of stuff can be difficult, so keeping it simple and light is always best. These are the type of gifts that I am looking for this Christmas, and I’ll be excited to check my Christmas stocking next week. Merry Christmas! What are your gift ideas?
