Do you have a person on your gift list who loves to travel? Need help picking out that perfect present that will help them travel, enjoy the world, and shower you with thanks? You've come to the right place to help you find just the right gift idea.
This gift list won't talk about traditional travel gear and it wont tell you to get an iPad. You already know about that stuff or we've covered some of it in past. (Those old lists, they are still really excellent, by the way. In 2008 we tackled gifts for first time travelers, backpackers, urban seeks and diy options. In 2009, we kept it quirky with guides to two of our favorite sources for offbeat goods, Fred Flare and Etsy. And last year, we rounded up some more favorites in our 2010 guide.) But enough about the past, let's move onto the present and show you some of the things that have caught our eye this holiday season.
Budgets may be tight this year, but we think making a gift is better than buying one any day. If you're short on cash, but still want to spoil your travel addict, we've come up with some ideas for gifts to make for them. (Warning, sewing skills may be needed.)
Today's gift guide is focused on the backpacker, the encumbered nomad, the freedom-seeker.
Today's gift selection is for that newly budding travel addict that's about the head out into that great big world and you want to be sure they have the essentials.
It's that time of year again, so we're putting together a selection of great gifts for your favorite traveler, whether they're a first-time traveler or a seasoned backpacker. Today we're focusing on the urban traveler: the museum explorer, cafe eater, and lover of all things city.
