A Christmas Gift Guide for Travelers
With a little over a week left from Christmas, getting a gift for your loved one (a fellow traveler) can be stressful. A gift guide for travelers is a great way to get inspired and spark that creativity of ours. Does the person prefer hot sunny location? Or is the person a hiker/climber? A history buff and loves traveling to historical landmarks?
Getting the merchandise can also be tricky. Will it arrive on time or after Christmas?
That’s why I prefer to use Amazon for online shopping. They added this exact information on each product page letting its shoppers know the estimated arrival (before or after Christmas).
Here is a list of great gifts from Amazon to get this Christmas for your travelers.
The Digital Nomad
GoPro Hero 6 Camera
It’s a given, the GoPro camera has to be first in this gift guide. From 4K videos to time lapses, and night photos this is a must-have. I have the GoPro Hero 5 camera, and love it! It’s waterproof, small and compact, with great picture/video quality.
GoPro Hero Accessories
No GoPro camera gift is complete without accessories! There are so many ways to mount or attach the camera to take the perfect shot. From bike to car mounts, from tripods to selfie sticks. Why not combine them and get an accessories bag?
One can’t go traveling without a great camera; can’t miss that perfect shot. Cellphones are great and compact, but won’t ever compare to the picture quality of a DSLR camera. If this gift is for someone that is just starting out in photography or traveling, this entry-level camera is a great start (also a best-seller on Amazon).
Portable Solar Power Bank
Now, no one can go out exploring or traveling without some backup juice for our digital devices. This solar power bank is a great device to keep the battery on those devices intact.
Tile – Key Finder. Phone Finder. Anything Finder
Always losing keys, phone, other accessories? Then getting the Tile “anything” Finder would make a great gift. When traveling, living out of a suitcase, and staying in hostels or hotel rooms can get messy at times. Using the Tile Finder be one step ahead and always find your things.
Garmin Fenix 5 GPS Watch
This is a gift on the more expensive side, but it’s worth it. It has a GPS embedded in it. It has a heart rate monitor, tracking of performance metrics, and capability of interchangeable wristbands.
The Nature Lover
XL Double Parachute Camping Hammock
This is an awesome product with excellent reviews that can be purchased for a great price during the Holiday Deals promo. It’s a must-have for anyone that enjoys camping or relaxing in nature while hiking. The hammock is available in several colors, so you will probably find the favorite color of the person you’re buying this gift for.
Portable Camping Cookware
If you need to buy a Christmas gift for camping enthusiasts, but want to keep it simple and budget-friendly, then consider this adorable portable camping cookware. It is lightweight, it consists of 10 different pieces and, most importantly, it’s very useful.
Camping Sleeping Bag
Obviously, there are numerous options when it comes to camping sleeping bags. Things to have in mind when purchasing one as a Christmas gift is for the sleeping bag to be lightweight and portable, but also comfortable and waterproof. Also, for the sake of your budget, you may want to seek for great deals, so you get something of a high quality for a lower-than-usual price. Here’s one suggestion.
Personal Water Filter
Talking about the cool gifts, LifeStraw is a product to awe your friends and family. This personal water filter is perfect for camping, hiking and traveling and may literally save lives. If for some unknown reasons you’re still unfamiliar with LifeStraw, this tube lets users get safe drinking water anywhere they are by simply inserting it into a water source and then drink like using a regular straw. Plus, not only LifeStraw is extremely cool and useful, but it is also quite budget-friendly.
Multi-Functional Camping Tool
These multi-functional camping tools may not be the most creative gifts in the world, but they are practical and useful. Thus, any true camping fan would appreciate a multi-functional camping tool even if they already have one. The one I’m recommending comes with a great price, excellent reviews and 10 different functions.
Well, nobody wants to think about scary and negative things during the holidays. However, having a personal alarm is always a great gadget for campers and hikers; most of these products come with a description that says: “for women, kids and elderly”; however, anyone can get lost or have an emergency really. Therefore, if you want to feel calm when your dearest goes on their next adventure, consider buying them a personal alarm. I found one that comes with a great price and reviews that confirm the loudness of the alarm as well as the brightness of the light.
Wool Hiking & Trekking Socks
Got to keep warm when hiking. These wool socks are great for winter, and very comfortable too.
America’s Great Hiking Trails Book (Hardcover)
Instead of getting an item to use during hiking or climbing, get a book. No one knows every hiking site or trail in America, but with this book why not gift them to your special someone. Plus, they can reminisce and tell stories on the trails they have visited.
Lightweight and Foldable Camp Backpacking Chair
So, after all that hiking you get to the top of the peak and you pull out this small compact foldable chair to enjoy the view. Maybe even bring this to the beach or concert.
Mountaintop 40 Liter Hiking Backpack
A water-resistant material and with a rain cover for outdoor camping, this is a great and fairly inexpensive mountaintop backpack. It has multiple compartments, and can even hold a laptop up to 17″ (an Amazon’s Choice).
Premium Ultralight Trekking Poles
For those that have joint problems or need the extra balance, these are great poles to use when in nature. Safety before everything else!
Survival Kit EMDMAK Outdoor Emergency Gear Kit
As I stated before, safety before all. So, make sure when going hiking or climbing you have a Survival Kit. Anything can happen, but you can protect yourself with few preparation steps.
