We all have that one person on our list that is always on the go. You know– the kind of person who works hard but plays even harder. They are bold, fearless, and would rather not sit still for too long. If you’re having difficulty thinking about what to buy this year, check out these tips and suggestions on what to get the fearless voyagers on your holiday gift-buying list.
1. Smart Security Camera
Give them the gift of peace of mind with a smart security camera that lets them check in on their house no matter where they are. Redfin named this security feature as one of the top upgrades homes need in 2017 for good reason. The new systems are discreet and easy to set up even for the tech-illiterate. They allow homeowners to check in on live feeds as well as review older footage to make sure their things are secure while they are on the road.
2. Instant Film Camera (with Film!)
Sure, we all have the convenience of instant pictures in our pockets with smartphones, but there is something to be said about the gratification of instant film cameras. Call it nostalgia or call it the value of exclusivity, but when you capture a moment with film, you tend to value it a bit more than one of the hundreds of rapid fire stills caught on an iPhone. Give your loved one the gift of lasting moments in a world of digital fleeting… and don’t forget some extra film!
3. Luxury Travel Toiletries Set
Next time your friend or family member is up in the air, help make their packing a little easier by gifting them with a prepared luxury travel toiletries set. You can curate your own out of highly rated classics, find an excellent brand that sells travel mini sets on their site, or simply pick out a good travel kit with miniature bottles they can fill with their own favorite products. It’s a practical and elegant gift perfect for the jet-setter on your list.
4. Universal Power Adapter
When traveling internationally, there’s nothing quite as frustrating as needing to plug in your electronics only to find your plug adapter does not work. Let your travel-loving friend say adieu to this problem with the gift of a universal adapter that works wherever you go. Check out this Lifehacker list of the best international travel adapters to find one in your price range.
5. A Travel Journal
Sometimes the person that is always on-the-go forgets to take the time to sit down and remember what exactly they are doing! Encourage your loved one to take the time and savor their adventures by writing them down in their very own travel journal. When gifting it, write them a note about how much they’ll appreciate their recordings when they are older and can’t get around as easily as they do now and share with them some tips on how to keep up with a travel journal.
If you are unsure what gift to get for the person on your list with wanderlust, wonder no more! Give them something that taps into their love of adventure and makes their time more enjoyable. A smart security camera allows them to leave home with peace of mind. An instant film camera gives them the gift of priceless moments when everything else moves too fast. Luxury travel toiletries make packing a breeze so they can focus on enjoying the journey. A universal power adapter allows them to be prepared wherever they go. Finally, a travel journal encourages them to remember their wonderful adventures long after they are done.
