Christmas Shopping Ideas For The Travelers In Your Family
Baker University, Baldwin City, Kansas | USA

‘Tis the season of corruptive and consumptive behavior joy and gift-giving to those we cherish in our lives!

Christmas shopping is easy for some and a bit more challenging for others — especially those who have that expensive hobby of traveling.

We all have that one person in our lives who’s never at home and we secretly hate them as they go from one exotic destination to the next, with no signs of slowing down any time soon.

As a full-time traveler, I think I know a thing or two about what other travlers want and need in their lives. And it’ll be listed down below for you to conveniently order right off Amazon and ship directly to their doorstep.

ELECTRONICS

SONY A6000 MIRRORLESS CAMERA

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

I can’t recommend this camera enough from beginner to advanced photography levels for travel. This is the camera I started using at the beginning of the year as I made the switch from DSLR to mirrorless, and it’s responsible for 90% of my Instagram and everyday blog photos.

It’s lightweight and compact for easy stowing, and also discreet enough to feel confident when using it in third world countries.

Traveling with a large Canon camera sometimes made you out to be a target for theft, but Sonys (un)fortunately look much cheaper, so you’re not weilding around a token of your wealth if they see it.

TRAVEL TRIPOD

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

In conjunction with my Sony camera, this is the tripod I use to take my shots on. 95% of the photos on my Instagram gallery are actually taken with a remote for my shutter and my tripod.

If you end up getting a Sony camera, it comes with a free app that you can download to your phone and use as a bluetooth remote. Super handy! Can you spot where I “hid” my phone in the shot below?

GOPRO HERO 6

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

Hands down the most versatile, durable, and compact camera on the market, this is so handy for that traveler who finds themselves jumping out of planes, hiking the tallest mountains, cliff diving off the coast of Croatia, or just loves to vlog about their travel adventures.

Shameless plug, but I was actually a part of the GoPro Hero 6 Launch campaign, so if you go watch the ad, you’ll see my mug in it and the footage is just insane!

GOPRO KARMA DRONE

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

If you know someone who wants to have the complete package and take their video content to the next level whether professionally or recreationally, the GoPro Karma is the handiest and most complete drone on the market right now.

It comes with a travel-friendly case, a Karma Grip stabilizer to use without the drone, and a user-friendly remote that feels like playing a video game. A steep investment, but this would easily change their lives.

2TB PORTABLE HARD DRIVE

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

Whether hobbyist or professional travelers, we are always filling up our SD cards with photos and videos. We can never over-back up our footage, and between our million and one SD cards and maxed out Dropbox folders, this is a perfect way for people who go on extended holidays to store all their photos and videos in one convenient place in the case that they ever lose their camera.

BEAUTY

BLACK CHERRY LIPSTICK

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

It takes a special kind of confidence to rock an aubergine lip, and whether you want to go for a night out, or just want to match a statement necklace, this color is perfect for ALL shades.

I pretty much feel naked without it. It’s best worn in the Fall and Winter, but I rock it year-round, because I do what I want.

3D FIBER LASH MASCARA

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

I didn’t realize how much your eyelashes really brightened and livened up your face until I went and got my first eyelash extensions earlier this year.

Eyelash extensions are all the rage, and chances are, your favorite style icons and celebrities have them, so don’t think they’re hashtag, blessed, with long, furry eye feathers, because they’re more than likely fake, lol.

But this mascara is EVERYTHING and I highly recommend it for travelers who want the look of eyelash extensions without making the steep investment of them.

MARC JACOBS DAISY PERFUME

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

I’ve been obsessed with the scent of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy perfume for as long as I can remember, and I’ve stuck to this brand because of its compact size, fresh scent, and lasting aroma.

Smelling good is such a random but crucial part of traveling, and whether you’ve just finished hiking Machu Picchu, or you’ve hauled @$% at the airport trying to make your flight, a couple spritz of this will have you feeling like BeGONEce Beyonce.

THERAPEUTIC ESSENTIAL OILS

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

If you’ve never heard of what essential oils can do, prepare to have your mind blown and your life changed. They are multi-purpose oils that can be used anywhere from your foods to your bodies.

They help aid weight loss, soothe pain, and even serve as a perfume if you’re running short. They have so many purposes that an everyday traveler would love to have this for! Not to mention, they make for great stocking stuffers!

LUGGAGE

SAMSONITE 3PC SET

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

If you know someone who is a hopeless hoarder loves to travel with more clothing options than God knows what, it’s likely that they have never been about that backpacker life. Me neither.

Suitcases are such a crucial accessory for frequent travelers, so finding one that’s big enough, strong enough, and won’t break by the tenth time you try to sit on it to close it shut, is a challenge. So I highly recommend Samsonite bags, especially for their durability.

VINTAGE CAMERA BAG

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

Though it’s listed as a “men’s” camera bag, I like to think since I sound like a man when I wake up every morning, that I’m good to go with owning it.

It’s a stylish bag that can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re going to shoot and it’s super versatile and spacious enough to even fit your laptop inside (I have a Macbook Pro 13″).

PACKING CUBES

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

If your traveling friend or family member is the slightest bit organized and nothing like the hot mess and slob I am, then they’d love these sleek and convenient packing cubes.

You’re able to segregate separate seasonal clothes, shirts from pants, and even a bag for shoes and laundry. It makes your travels 10x easier by not having to tear apart your suitcase every time you need an outfit.

It’s a skill I’m still trying to master. I own these cubes, but they’re crumpled in the corner of my suitcase and I strive to one day find time and patience to use them and make my life easier. One day.

BOOKS

“FROM EXCUSES TO EXCURSIONS”

From Excuses to Excursions | TheBlogAbroad.com
My paperback! Ain’t she purdy? *sniff sniff*

What’s a book list without a shameless personal plug? Incomplete, that’s what! Ha.

Everyone has a special gift that they can contribute to making this world a better place, and your gift may or may not be a solo trip away from discovery.

If you know someone who might enjoy a travel memoir about my journey of becoming a full-time travel blogger, including my childhood mischief, teenage struggles, and an overall honest account of what it takes to “live the dream” then this book is for them!

Purchase From My Publisher: HERE

“LONELY PLANET’S 500 BEST PLACES”

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

For the frequent traveler who is always planning their next getaway, gift them this book with the ultimate travel destination inspirations around the world! 500 to be exact, and they’re ranked!

“NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’S MOST AMAZING PLACES”

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

National Geographic is arguably the world’s leading nonfiction publishers, as their books feature history, travel, nature, photography, space, science, health, biography, and memoir.

A portion of the proceeds are used to fund exploration, conservation, and education through ongoing contributions to the work of the National Geographic Society. This book lists their 225 top choices for the most amazing destinations around the world and it’s a timeless classic.

CLOTHING

BOHO SHOULDERLESS TOP

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

This might be my most-worn shirt in my entire wardrobe, and whether you think this is their style or not, there is no doubt going to be an occasion where they whip it out and absolutely slay their outfit. Here’s some outfit inspiration from my ‘gram below!

AFRICAN DASHIKI DRESS

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

Easily the most complimented dress in my wardrobe was this dashiki-print number that I proudly rocked around my travels through Brazil, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Kenya, and Nigeria this year. It comes in black and white, so of course, I got both. A must for the stylish Pan-African traveler you know!

VINTAGE FLOWY SKIRT

Purchase on Amazon: HERE

This is my go-to skirt for almost every occasion, and by now, I have a picture of myself in it around 20ish countries. It’s cute, it’s fun, and it’s flirty for those female travelers who like to look cute in their travel photos… which there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing by the way(more on that here).
