Episode Notes

For the travel blogger and writer - they deserve a high quality laptop case to keep that precious cargo safe. You also can’t go wrong with a travel journal. To give them some great inspiration for their next adventure or story, travel magazine subscriptions are the way to go. Some of the best subscriptions include National GEO, Travel & Leisure, Artful Living, Wanderlust, Afar, and Global Traveler

For the avid flyer, there are top items everyone needs in their carry on - fun masks, eye shades, neck pillows, packable travel blanket, noise canceling headphones, word searches, foldable raincoat and of course, a travel wallet to fit and protect their passport. 

After so many travel adventures, a piece of luggage starts to give out. A new luggage set is the perfect, thoughtful gift for someone always on the go. Some reputable brands to look into are AWAY, IFly, and Beis. To go with the luggage set, you can get refillable travel sized toiletries and a hangable toiletry bag. 

 Loungewear for the airport is a must because you want to be comfy, but there’s also photo ops moments that mean you need cute and casual. Some great brands are Lululemon, and Calvin Klein. In terms of clothes, splurging on a quality pair of hiking boots might be the way to go. Before going to Machu Picchu and hiking around the Inca trail, I bought Colombia hiking boots and I am so happy I spent extra money to get a quality pair that will last years. Bass Pro Shops had a decent selection to choose from. 

If your person enjoys activities and going places more than material items, find a worthwhile voucher or certificate to do something fun. For example, you can buy flight vouchers or gift cards for Delta, Southwest, or American so they can have funds for their next travel adventure. 
Or if you know they’ve been wanting to go skydiving or get scuba diving certified, those would be amazing gifts. Another voucher that goes a long way is the Key West Express voucher that lasts for 2 years. 

One of the best things about traveling is coming home after an adventure away. A great gift to buy for travel lovers is photo albums and print out pictures of where they’ve explored. Shutterfly can meet all your personalized and picture needs. 

There’s options for everyone in the Travel Brats gift guide, but you can simply write a loving card and include a picture and that would be thoughtful enough. Enjoy the holidays coming up and purchase with love.
