It's hard to find the perfect gift for those who are always on the go, since you don't know if they have space in their luggage for your gift. I've put together some tips on how to give gifts to the jetsetter, or to the wanderluster to inspire travel.
I was glad when Uncommon Goods invited me to explore their products because I realized they had a great collection of unique jewelry pieces. Jewelry makes an awesome gift for the jetsetter since it doesn't take up too much space, and it's not too difficult to shop for. I personally love receiving unique pieces. Browsing through their selection, I found some one-of-a-kind necklaces and great dainty bracelets, which are both perfect for travel since they are hard to lose, even on full-day outdoor excursions.
1. Give a gift that reminds them of good times
I love this coordinates necklace since it can be set to the city of your choice. The coordinates can be set to a place that left a big impression, and will be an awesome reminder good times. I also think these elephant earrings are super cute, especially since it's subtly travel-themed, serving as a reminder of riding elephants in Thailand or spotting them on a safari in Tanzania.
2. Give a personalized gift
Travelers likely appreciate unique items that are hard to find elsewhere. I love this compass necklace that is hand engraved with a custom message on the back. This personalized handwriting necklace is also an awesome idea for someone's name or special word that holds meaning for them.
3. Give a gift that reminds them of home
Whether someone has left their hometown or is always on the go, it's always good to be reminded of good memories from home. Settling into a new home or constantly traveling can be tiring, so it's always great to have reminders of friends and family. I really like this state necklace, the California one is on my wishlist (customized with LA as the city, of course). This dainty links of love bracelet can remind the traveler that they're always loved and welcome back home.
4. Give a gift that inspires travel
I have many friends who have constant wanderlust but never seem to book the trip. Travel-themed gifts may inspire them to finally take the plunge and go on that trip. This resolution bracelet can be set to travel more or experience new things. These starfish earrings can also inspire the tropical beach vacation that the friend deserves.
