Buying presents for the ones you love is never easy. There’s a real pressure to get them something special. If you’re looking to source the perfect present for a travel enthusiast then it can be particularly difficult. How can you possibly cater to their biggest passion without going overboard and spending huge sums on a two-week tour of a foreign country?
It’s enough to give any gift buyer nightmares. It’s not all doom and gloom, though. There are ways to satisfy their needs without breaking the bank. The key is to show them that you care. Here are some handy tips to get you started.
Probably the most obvious way to display your interest in their passion is to give them a gift that actively supports their lust for travel.
This could be something as simple as a travel adapter or a personalised passport holder. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture and is a great option for those struggling financially. However, unless you are their regular travel partner, it can be hard to know what items they already own. We took this mini travel speaker with us that is Bluetooth enabled. It’s super light, great sound quality and looks cool as well.
Organise A Trip
In a perfect world, you’d be able to treat your loved ones to the holiday of a lifetime. Sadly, a little thing called money means that probably isn’t going to happen.
Nonetheless, you can still give them something truly special with a trip to one of the many great locations across England and Wales, and there are always plenty of cheap return flights to destinations in Europe!
A short break isn’t just a great gift, it could also be what everyone needs to recharge their batteries after a busy few weeks at work. It’s the perfect way to spend magical moments with the ones you love. I recently organised a surprise trip to Copenhagen for my boyfriends birthday.
We stayed at a gorgeous Airbnb apartment in the trendy district of Nørrebro. I knew the holiday would create memories we could cherish for ever, as opposed to another pair of Vans under the bed! He’d been talking about going for a while, and our mutual love for all things Scandinavian made it an no brainer where to go!
While travelling is their passion, home is still where the heart is for your recipient. You can enhance their life by combining the two with suitable home accessories.
The gorgeously designed Magpie gifts are a great reminder of previous trips to the coast and are sure to brighten up the home too. Furthermore, if those memories are also linked to your relationship with the receiver then it’s a celebration of those times you’ve shared.
Unfortunately, even the most ardent travellers don’t get away as often as they’d wish. One way to battle those post-holiday blues is to celebrate the previous good times.
Buying a commemorative souvenir from a landmark is probably something they’ve already done. However, you could always get hold of a cookbook to celebrate the cuisine from a trip that was previously enjoyed. If not, there are plenty of other items to help remember the culture from foreign lands.
If all else fails, you could always take their holiday photos from Facebook and have them printed out in a frame carrying the name of the destination.
