What are the best gifts for travelers? It’s the time of year when we start to think about what to choose for those we love. The travelers on your shopping list may be the easiest of all. I just wrote about the connection between travel and happiness…let that be your guide.
People who love to travel crave more of the same: Experiences of all types. Big or small. And “big” doesn’t necessarily mean a weekend jaunt to Paris. (Although that would be sweet…) It means a thoughtful choice that gives someone a new perspective. A new look at a familiar place. A visit to a spot that they didn’t know existed.
Travelers also appreciate items that help them get to those experiences. Or plan for them. Or just dream about them.
We’ll be talking more about specific ways to delight the travelers in your life…or for you to make up your own Wish List. You know, just in case someone needs a hint or two.
Today, start to think about the travelers you know. Everyone has different styles, likes, and dislikes. Some folks prefer to take day trips and return to their own beds at night. Others are content taking road trips around the country–and there is certainly a lot to see! Still others are nomads, wandering the world for weeks or months, returning home to do laundry before setting out again.
When you choose a great gift for the travelers in your life, you’ll never have to worry if it fits or if they’ll be exchanging it at the first opportunity. Indeed, the gifter and the giftee will both be happy!
