Christmas is fast approaching and if you’re the kind who leaves holiday shopping until the last minute, look no further! Ready your shopping cart and check out our list of the best Christmas gifts for travelers that will make the recipient go awwwweee:
This present serves as a wonderful reminder as to where a traveler’s been and explored. It’s basically a map covered in gold top foil which you can scratch off once you’ve been to a specific place.
Especially handy when someone is traveling from one country to another in succession, a power adapter is definitely every traveler’s best friend.
This saves them from dealing with the different electric sockets that vary in size and shape, and since its all-in-one, they don’t have to lug around too many things.
To save money and to save on hotel nights, pro backpackers often opt to travel via red-eye flights or night bus trips so that they don’t have to shell out cash for a good night’s sleep.
If this sounds familiar, and you have a friend who does the same, then gift them with a travel pillow that’ll support their neck and head. This in turn ensures that they rest easy despite the travel hours and that they don’t wake up feeling sore or cranky.
If you have a friend who’s fond of snorkeling, exploring caves, and visiting waterfalls, then a LifeProof waterproof phone case would be great for them.
Perfect for active and adventurous travelers, this rugged case is not only waterproof, but it’s freeze-resistant and shock-proof, as well.
There’s nothing more aggravating than gadgets you can’t use simply because they’re, as Pinoys put it, low batt.
Without a charged gadget, how can you take a stunning photo of the Temple of Leah while in Cebu or record a video of the grand fireworks show in Disneyland?
When buying a power bank, it’s best to choose one that has a capacity of at least 20,000 mAh. Electronic and gadget stores sell it for about PHP1,700.
National Geographic has outdone itself by producing this multicolored atlas with intricate maps and comprehensive political and physical geography representations.
Considered as one of the most current and comprehensive atlas available, the book has an index of about 150,000 place names and includes updates that provide prodigious details.
There are travelers who are into blogging, publishing their travel experiences online. Then there are those who are more into keeping their adventures to themselves and would prefer to put their thoughts and experiences onto paper.
Special travel journals that you can take a look at include Moleskine’s City Notebooks (~PHP1,000) which have blank pages to be filled with itineraries, as well as city and transportation maps.
Another awesome option, I Was Here (Diary Version, ~PHP750) is an illustrated travel journal that highlights the often overlooked details when traveling. Both are available on Amazon.
Give a friend shoes without bulk so he doesn’t have to sacrifice style for the sake of luggage space. Footwear such as boots and sneakers may look fashionable in a photo, but they won’t be helpful if you want to bring other essential things on your trip. A dapper pair of sandals could be an option, too.
Bluetooth speakers produce bold sounds that add color and excitement to your trip. We recommend JBL, Fugoo, and Bose products as these are proven to produce high-quality sounds.
Make your gift more special by giving the waterproof type.
No professional camera? No problem. All a traveler needs are smartphone lens to attach to their gadget and voila, expect crisp photos as if they were taken with an expensive camera.
Perfect for tech-savvy travelers, these lens capture images in wider angles, adding depth and story to the photo.
Level up a traveler’s game and give him or her a drone, that is if you’re that generous enough. This fabulous item allows a unique photographic perspective and creates stunning video footage. Soon, your friend can use your gift to make money as well.
