We love to travel and we don’t get to do it as often as we like…yet. Travel is a big goal for our future but no matter when you travel, there are products that make traveling easier. I know a lot of people like to travel and even more people like to give helpful and thoughtful holiday gifts. I thought I would put together a list of some gift ideas for friends and family members who like to travel. I hope you find my gifts for travelers helpful.
Gifts for Travelers
SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive
Have you ever been on a vacation, taking a lot of pictures on your smartphone and then the “out of memory” notice comes up?!? It is so frustrating. before we went on our cruise last year I picked up a 32 GB SanDisk Connect Wireless Flash Drive. Each night hubby and I both downloaded all our pictures to the drive. We never had to worry about running out of memory! These flash drives are available in 32, 64, 128, and 200 GB sizes for $23.89-$86.09 based on size.
Do you know a traveler who is going on an epic adventure and needs a new camera or lens? Rent one! The Gear You Want When You Need It is the motto at BorrowLenses. Gift certificates are available and would make an amazing gift!
All serious travelers need some type of traveler’s notebook to record their travels in. I recommend the affordable, recycled notebooks from Guided Products. Recycled notebooks come in 3 sizes and 3 finishes with prices starting at $3.49 you can’t go wrong.
Photo Books and Calendars
I have used Mixbook for years. I have made several Custom Photo Books at Mixbook and created calendars too. If you know someone who takes beautiful pictures of their travels a Mixbook gift card would be a very thoughtful gift.
Thinium ReCharge iPhone Charger
I’ve been using my Thinium RECharge iPhone Charger for a few weeks now. I think it is a good choice for travelers because you don’t need any extra cables. You can charge via the built in lightning dock or the attached USB. When you are back in your room you can plug the Thinium ReCharge into the wall outlet with the phone attached and charge both the phone and the battery pack at the same time. The ReCharge charges your iPhone quickly and can ReCharge your phone 1.5 times per charge. The ReCharge is available for $69.99.
Gifts for Making Packing Easier
You might remember back in April I introduced you to TUO the Travel Undergarment Organizer. I love my TUO and it travels with me everywhere I go. If you are going on an overnight trip you can use it to pack most of what you need. For an extended stay, TUO keeps your unmentionables clean, safe and easy to access. TUO comes in 5 designer styles and costs $49.50.
Miu Color Packing Cubes
Where have Miu Color Packing Cubes been all my life? I learned about packing cubes a while back when a friend of mine posted a video about how she packed her family of 7 (including 5 kids under age 6) to move to Europe with only 1 backpack each! I was amazed and intrigued. I got my set of packing cubes last fall in time for our week long cruise and that is when I fell in love. My suitcases are so much more organized and my clothes stay neater when they are packed in cubes. What makes this even better? These cubes come in 3 different colors and are only $15.99 per set of 4.
I haven’t tried this product yet but it is on my list. Shelfpack – A new kind of luggage with built-in shelves!! How absolutely cool is this? Talk about luggage organizing at its finest. The Shelfpack would have been pefect for Jordan when he was traveling the country with The 99 doing missionary work and living in host homes for 2 1/2 years. Shelfpack retails for $349.
