What do you give travelers?
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 parting gifts before long trips. There are definitely differences in interests. Or in the way of traveling. Some friends like to travel long distances. But no matter if Ottawa, Toronto or Amsterdam, everyone is happy about travel gifts. Others prefer to go 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 different types of travelers.
The greatest pleasure is provided by gifts that are tailored to the interests and the way of traveling.
Travel gifts that travelers are looking forward to
When traveling, you do not need many things. The important thing is that you have the right things with you. The size of the suitcase is particularly important in times of increasing prices for hand luggage and size limits for checked-in luggage. The smaller the suitcase or the luggage, the cheaper you travel.
Suitcases are perfect gifts 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. Although they cost a lot, they are an investment for life. If you travel a lot like we do, they are a good investment. We have been traveling with our hand luggage trolley for many years. Here you can buy it *, Further considerations on the question of whether Suitcase, trolley or backpack more practical we have hired here.

A reversible jacket is a practical gift for travelers
When the luggage gets smaller, one has to limit oneself in the choice of clothes to take with you. Therefore we recommend to pack a reversible jacket. With a garment you can look twice different.

So you can be dressed rather sporty during the day, while in the evening you wear the elegant side to the outside. We especially like it this reversible jacket * Good.

Enjoyment travelers like to look into the cooking pots of foreign countries. They also try exotic dishes. Taste unknown fruits. Or learn on site how to prepare dishes from other countries yourself. What could be more obvious than bringing home the ingredients for the world's kitchens with a suitable gift.
Spices of the world
Those who like to try the kitchens of the world on their travels usually also like to do it in their own kitchen. However, this is not always easy. Often the spices are missing that one is looking for exotic recipes needs. So what could be more natural than a collection of Spices from all over the world * to give? He will be glad about it.

Of course, having a good meal also requires a good wine. So what could be more natural than giving a selection of wines from around the world to someone who likes to visit winemakers and wine regions? Not everyone likes wine. Maybe your connoisseur is more interested in high spirits like gin or whiskey? Or would he rather try the teas of the world? There are many possibilities. A variety of drinks in the world is definitely a good gift for pleasure travelers. For example, this mini wine tasting set is a great idea:

Books that arouse longing for foreign countries
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 they 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 really like the Provence thrillers by Cay Rademacher, whose first volume is this:

Travel Gifts for Slow Travelers
Slow Traveler are sustainable travelers. We are traveling slowly in the world. On walks. Cozy hikes. Boat tours. With horse-drawn carriages. Or other slow means of transportation. Good shoes and backpacks we have already recommended you as a travel gift.
A drinking bottle made of stainless steel
In addition, I find a metal bottle very practical in which you can transport drinks for the day. Fill with water, put in a few herbs, cucumber slices and lemon juice - the refreshing drink is ready for the day. Because the bottle is made of metal, it can be easily cleaned and reused for a long time. Sustainable is not possible, right?

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.
Selfie drone following you in flight

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?
