I don’t know about you, but I find gift buying to be so difficult. What do they want?? What if they don’t like what I get them?? To be honest I usually just end up baking people a cake or some cookies. Everyone likes food, right?! If you’re anything like me, you need as many ideas as you can get. So if you have a travel addict in your life, here are 6 gift ideas for travel addicts in your life to get you started. OR ALTERNATIVELY, if you are a travel addict you can just casually leave this page open where a loved one can conveniently see it….That’s my plan anyway. You’re welcome.
1. This hair brush that doubles as a safe.
It’s always lovely when an item functions as two. This hair brush is a hair brush. And a safe. You can unscrew the top and store money or other documents inside. The hairbrush also comes with a wee pouch to put jewellery in to stop the rattling. And, as one clever reader has pointed out, this hairbrush would also be perfect for sneaking booze into festivals. Click here to find out more!
2. An Icon Speak T-Shirt
Avoid awkward miscommunications, just point to your shirt. You can also get these shirts specific to certain cities you are travelling to, such as Moscow. These city specific shirts feature icons of well known landmarks and ‘must-do’ activities. The Icon Speak guys also have products specific to activities you may be doing such as a safari. Check it out here!
3. A Scratch-off Travel Map
This is high on my want list (babe if you’re reading this….). Who doesn’t love scratchy games? It’s like an interactive poster for your wall. Personally, if I had a scratch map (HINT HINT Mr Boyfriend), I would feel so inspired to travel more. This seems like such a fun way to keep track of where you have been. Get scratching here!
4. Travel Savings Money Box
Isn’t it pretty? Having somewhere to store your coins can go a long way in helping you save for your next adventure. And I don’t know about you, but there is just something so satisfying about Money Boxes. Hearing the coins clink and literally watching your savings grow is very motivational. So what are you waiting for? Get saving now!
5. A Cute Notebook to Record Travel Memories
Because who wants to forget anything that happens on their amazing adventure? No me, that’s for sure. I always have a notebook with me to write down what happened that day and any other random thoughts / feelings. I also find it’s good to write a list of embassies / some basic currency conversions at the start of your notebook, to keep the info handy. You can find the notebook pictured below, here.
6. This Globe Necklace.
Let your travel addict buddy wear their obsession. Also, wearing a visual representation of your goals can help you keep on track! I have this necklace and I love it so much. I really enjoy wearing during my 8-5 day job, a wee reminder about why I work 😉 Globe necklace can be found here.
So there you have it. Six gift ideas for travel addicts, I hope this helped all you struggling gift buyers! Let me know what’s on your wish list! And if you have strategically left this list open for a certain someone to see, let me know if it works!
As always, let me know in the comments!
Thank you and much love,
P.S Leaving this list open where a loved one will “accidentally” see it works. Check out my new travel scratch map I recently came home to (thanks Boyfriend)!
