While the birthday of a near and dear one is supposed to be a super fun day, such occasions sometime leave us scratching our heads in confusion! Frantic worries about how to make their special day even more special leaves us pondering for hours.
While some of us will ask our other friends for party ideas, others will be scouring the internet to look for the perfect gift. Indeed, selecting a gift that will be cool while useful is a tough task!
If someone in your family or friend circle is a travel junkie, and you are having a difficulty in finding the perfect birthday gift for them, then read on to end your dilemma! If you too happen to be a traveler at heart, don’t hesitate in asking for one of these as a gift for yourself!
A Scratch Map
A perfect gift for that globe trotter friend! If ticking off countries from the bucket list is what gives your travel freak friend a high, he/she would be happy to adorn this map on his/her wall! For every new country covered, one can scratch it off on the map with a coin, thus recording one’s travel achievements!
A Passport Cover
Those visa stamps on the passport is another mark of honour for a traveller! And the travel addict would be happy to treasure his/ her passport in a funky passport cover.
GoPro Hero 7 Black
GoPro, the ultimate traveler’s camera, doesn’t need an introduction anymore! It is wearable, waterproof, shock-proof, voice-activated, and all around durable enough to handle even the most rugged of adventures.
The Go Pro 7 black is the newest version, complete with insanely smooth video stabilization, a touchscreen and 4K video at 60fps. A perfect gift for your adventurous traveler buddy!
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Speaker
Bluetooth speakers are a must to enjoy those melodies and tap to those beats when you and your travel freak friend are in the outdoors. Having a speaker that is not just portable but sturdy and water proof will have you not to worry about the accidental damages. The JBL Flip 4 will give you 12 hours of playtime along with a voice assistant integration.
Rather than packing clothes straightaway into a rucksack or suitcase, the use of packing cubes can help a traveller solve those packing woes. These light weight packing cubes will ensure the clothes do not sift in the luggage in transit- thus remaining wrinkle free and well organized. They can also be used to separate clean clothes from the used ones at the end of the trip.
A Travel Hammock
This one is for all the beach bums out there, though there are other places to use it as well! It will be cool to carry your own hammock and relax on a spot of your choice when you are on a vacay!
Personal Purifier Bottle
If the traveler in your life loves to spend long time in the lap of nature or rough it out in rugged terrains, a personal purifier bottle would come absolutely handy to her/ him.
With this affordable item that purifies water, your friend need not think twice before drinking tap water or water from a stream! Also, it will help in reducing the plastic menace created by single-use bottled mineral water sold commonly in shops.
A Microfiber Towel
A towel may seem like an unusual choice for a gift, but your wanderlust stricken friend will thank you again and again once he/ she realizes the utility of your gift! A bulky towel often occupies a big space in backpacks, and once wet, carrying a wet towel around is a misery.
A microfiber towel occupies is very light and compact and dries in no time at all. It can be use not just for travelling but even for those gyms and swimming routines.
Cell phone batteries tend to drain out quickly with all the GPS usage and phone photography while on a trip. Gift your buddy a power bank, so that the phone batteries do not ditch him/ her in the middle of a journey!
Dozing off on that long flight or tiresome drive can give serious neck pains even to the most seasoned travellers. Carrying a travel pillow will not only ensure a comfy nap, but will also prevent any serious discomfort to the upper back.
Perhaps this list will help you narrow down your search and help you make the right choice.
Surely, when your travel freak friend utilizes your gift while exploring a new destination, he/ she will pause for a minute and remember you with a smile!
