The birds been eaten to the bone and the naps have been taken, so it’s time to start thinking about Christmas and the shopping that comes with it. You read this blog, so you’ve already got someone in your life who’s a traveler, maybe even yourself. So I’ve taken a look at a few neat travel gifts you can buy online and even a few you can make yourself.
The first gift is bound to get the blood pumping and you’re making it by hand so it’s from the heart to boot. You need coffee filters, coffee and string and that’s all you need to make your own single serving coffee pods. A great gift idea for the traveler who needs a quality cup in the morning.
The second gift is for anyone who has the chronic problem of tangled earbuds. You know it doesn’t matter how careful you are, once you place your earphones in your pocket they magically become a jumbled mess. The leather earphone organizer is a simple way of keeping yourself from like looking like a kitten with a ball of string in the airport as you struggle to untangle them.
The third gift goes with the second, because after you’ve spent all that time clearing your backlog of Hulu programs in the lounge chair by the pool you’ll need to recharge. The solar media player is a great option. The case, offered by Secur products, is perfect for the beach or the pool. The solar panel not only maintains the charge on your device while in use, it’ll charge it up as well.
Our fourth suggestion is a memento of the places you’ve been. A city map glass. A warning though, you may be asked if you’re okay if someone catches you staring silently at your drink as you try to find the name of your favorite park on the side of the glass. You may have guessed it, but only major U.S. cities are available at this point. You may be able to find at least one place you like to reminisce about as you drink.
I hope this short list helps kick start your holiday shopping. If you find a favorite gift for the travelers in your life, share it with us in the comments!
