Gift Ideas - What Are The Best Travel Gifts?
What are the best travel gifts for travelers? We ask ourselves that question again every year in the weeks Christmas. Most of our friends love to travel as much as we do. Therefore, it goes without saying that travel gifts are the first thing we think about as the decision of what to give them for Christmas approaches. But these tips are also useful during the year for birthdays, anniversaries or as farewell gifts for travelers. There are definitely differences in interests. Or in the way of traveling. Some friends like to travel long-distance. But no matter if Ottawa, Toronto, Amsterdam or Helsinki, everyone is happy about travel gifts. However, they prefer useful gifts for travelers.
Others are more on foot, by bike and in their own country. Still others like to relax in spas or thermal baths. The needs are also different. Here we present the best travel gifts for all types of travelers. The greatest joy is provided by gifts for travelers that are tailored to their interests and the type of travel.
Travel gifts for travel bloggers among slow travelers
Many among the Slow Travelers publish their own travel blog. You always need new technical equipment to stay up to date.
Action cam for the photo trip
If the gift is supposed to be something special, you are guaranteed to give a travel blogger a lot of joy with an action cam. If one is under the Christmas tree, the joy is great.
Selfie drone following you in flight
We therefore recommend a very practical drone for hikers. Do you go hiking alone? Then you surely know that you are constantly working with your photo equipment. What do you think of a drone that automatically follows you? She films you from an unusual angle and also follows you everywhere. Great, is not it? With it you can take photos from extraordinary perspectives.
A bag for your electronics when you travel
A bag like this is certainly not only interesting for travel bloggers, but for everyone who takes a laptop, drone or cell phone with them on their travels. Who does not know the tangled cables and the mess of batteries, adapters and adapter plugs that you often look for in vain in your suitcase. A bag like this solves this problem in a practical way.
A socket cube
Anyone who travels today can no longer do without electronic devices. It doesn't matter whether it's a smartphone, camera or laptop - each of them needs to be charged every day. Hotel rooms or other locations rarely have enough outlets to charge multiple devices at the same time. It is all the more important to take a multiple plug with you when you travel. If this is then as compact as this socket cube, you will be even happier about such a gift.
Travel gifts that travelers are looking forward to
Gifts for travelers should definitely be chosen well. You don't need a lot of things when traveling. However, it is important that you have the right things with you. The size of the suitcase is particularly important in times of increasing prices for hand baggage and size restrictions for checked baggage. The smaller the suitcase or piece of luggage, the cheaper it is to travel.
Suitcases are perfect gift ideas for travelers
However, they should not be too big. After all, you have to drag them too. Trolleys that can be rolled and do not have to carry are therefore particularly practical.
We are big fans of Samsonite trolleys. They cost a lot, but they are an investment for life. If you travel frequently, as we do, they are a good investment. We have been traveling with our hand luggage trolley for years. Here you can buy it *, Further considerations on the question of whether Suitcase, trolley or backpack more practical we have hired here.

A luggage scale is suitable for this.

They are not only helpful when traveling, but also when shopping on the weekend.
A reversible jacket is a useful gift for globetrotters
When the luggage gets smaller, you have to limit yourself in the choice of clothes that you take with you. We therefore recommend packing a reversible jacket. You can look twice different with one piece of clothing. The jackets that use different materials on the inside and outside are particularly good. This means that you can wear sporty clothes during the day, while wearing the more elegant side on the outside in the evening. We especially like this reversible jacket.
Have you thought of shoes as a gift for traveling women?
We always walk a lot on our travels. This can be quite exhausting for the feet, especially when hiking or in cities.

Books as a gift idea for the trip
When we are not traveling, we let ourselves be transported to foreign countries. Of course there are travel guides for every country and region in the world. However, thrillers or novels transport us much better to other regions of the world, where these are described in detail. These thrillers, for example, which all take place in Provence in the south of France, do this very well. After reading it, I have the feeling that I already know many of the places that play a role in it. For example, I like the Provence thrillers by Cay Rademacher, whose first volume is this:
Kindle for travel guides - useful gifts for travelers
We like to take travel guides from home with us on our travels. We do not use electronic guides, especially when traveling to non-European countries. Because roaming charges can quickly explode there. To avoid this and to avoid having to carry heavy travel guides with us, we load the travel guides onto our Kindle reader at home and have them always available on the go. Even without access to WiFi.
It's best to start charging now some travel guides for the next trip * of the globetrotter on the reader. Then the Christmas surprise is guaranteed to succeed.
