It’s that festive time of the year again, Christmas songs are playing on the radio, the decorations are coming out and hot wine is being prepared all around the Christmas markets of Europe, it’s an exciting time indeed.
One not so exciting job is trying to find the perfect gift this Christmas for the traveller in your life. Normally they only travel with as little as possible and tend to value experiences over things, it can be a tricky job indeed.
Not to worry! Travel Dave is here to the rescue and I’ve highlighted 10 items which might be the perfect match.
Here is my list of 10 gifts for the traveller in your life this Christmas:
1. GoPro Hero Black
Go Pro have just launched a new entry level camera which is both basic and of great value. Armed with a complete waterproof casing, you can use this as your secondary camera to capture those perfect action shots without breaking the bank. The quality is not as great as the higher end models, but for those looking to enter the Go Pro universe and looking at having some fun, this is the perfect gift.
Always on my Christmas list, the amazon Kindle. This lower end model has just been given a face lift and now comes with a touch screen. The battery life of this device can go for 2 months in one sitting and for that reason it will always be with me on my travels. You can store thousands of books on it and you will never have to face a bored moment again.
3. Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau
Big fan of Chris Guillebeau and his books, his latest addition is all about creating journeys that make life changing experiences, contains a collection of stories ranging from artists to travellers who share their own personal adventures to help encourage your own quest. Great gift idea for anyone in your life who is looking to complete an adventure and needs an inspirational push.
Great film and gets the travel bug racing, enjoyed this movie a lot and has a fun story line which any traveller would enjoy.
5. Cards against humanity
Noticed a lot of backpackers playing this game in hostels and after giving it ago on a long bus ride I have to say I’m hooked. It’s very funny, helps breaks the ice and is addictive too.
If you’re constantly abroad and want to stream content from your home country, but it’s blocked, check out this incredible software which can set up a private VPN network for you so you can watch what you want when you want where ever you are, never be put in the dark again. Great gift for a family as you can register multiple devices.
Perfect for winter months when you don’t want to take your gloves off to use your smart phone. These gloves have an E-tip built into the fingertips of the gloves so they work on touch screen devices. You will never have cold fingers again while waiting at the bus stop.
Makes a nice stocking filler gift, its a small, smart phone cable that fits onto your keys so you’re always having a cable at hand to charge your device when it goes flat.
Travel with multiple devices? This handy device allows you to log on as one wifi account, then connects all your devices at once. Simple, easy to use and takes up no space at all, very compact.
This little HMDI dongle plugs into any HDMI TV and will transport your laptop/smartphone/tablet screen to the TV. It’s as simple as that and great to use in Hotel rooms when your TV isn’t getting much use.
