Christmas Gifts for Travelers

Christmas is only 9 days away, and if you’re anything like me you still have quite a bit of Christmas shopping to do! As you know my passion is travel, and in the 11 months of blogging I have found that there are a ton of people out there who are passionate about travel, or who want to be passionate about traveling. If someone you love travels a lot or wants to be a world traveler these 10 last minute Christmas Gifts are sure to be a hit!

You can get your Carry-On Cocktail Kit on Amazon starting at $15.49, and each kit makes two cocktails.

Apple has begun the trend of getting rid of the headphone jack making Bluetooth headphones absolutely necessary. I have already mentioned in my 5 essential travel items that noise canceling headphones are a must. I’m currently rocking the corded version of these awesome Bluetooth Bose headphones.

6.  For some travel Inspiration: Lonely Planet Ultimate Travel

Last minute christmas gifts

The Ultimate Travel Book

I love this book, but buyer be warned…serious wanderlust will be induced. The Lonely Planet ranked the 500 best destinations to visit and included plenty of pictures!

7. GoPro Hero 5

GoPro’s latest camera no longer needs the bulky case to be waterproof. For your adventurous traveler or for someone who wants a compact option for creating great pictures and videos the GoPro Hero 5 or Hero 5 Session would be a great last minute Christmas gifts!

8. DJI Osmo Mobile

DJI Osmo Mobile

The cameras on today’s cellphones are ridiculous. I can shoot 4K 30fps on my iPhone 7Plus, which makes carrying a big DSLR kind of less important. If you have watched some of my travel vlogs, you may have noticed some of the sequences get a little shakey. DJI, maker of the two best drones on the market has come to the rescue with the Osmo Mobile. You hook up your phone and you have a handheld gimbal making your videos as smooth as the most professional video!

9. The Airhook

This genius device attaches to the tray table allowing you to mount your iPad or phone/tablet in front of you saving you from some serious neck aches. As an added bonus it doubles as a drink holder! You can get yours on Amazon.

10. Travel

I saved the best last minute Christmas gift for last. The thing that any traveler would love most is travel! You can get an airline gift card or have them open a picture of the exotic destination you want to visit and work out the logistics later! I will be launching Instant Wanderlust a mystery travel booking site where I will personally curate your vacation itinerary and keep it secret until just before your trip! I plan to have the site up and running by the beginning of the year, so if you’re interested in giving an Instant Wanderlust trip for your loved one please email me and we can work something out!
