It sounds obvious, but what better gift for someone who loves to travel than an amazing trip? We've discussed before that the sustained happiness from new experiences is not only an incredibly memorable and personal gift, but it’s also one that really just keeps on giving. Our team can help with gift certificates, starting a trip, and/or designing a printable note to wrap. Click here to get started!
National Park Pass
Exploring a lot of the national parks? Gift a National Park Pass so your loved ones have their park fees covered for the year! Seniors are also eligible for Lifetime Passes.
Etsy is an incredible corner of the Internet. It’s such a great source to find something unique and tailored to your loved ones. Examples include a travel scarf with secret passport pocket, customized travel themed jewelry, scratch-off maps, or personalized passport holders and luggage tags. Browse and find some artsy inspiration. You can even reach out to the artists and crafters to come up with something completely one-of-a-kind.
These are single-handedly THE most recommended item from the UTD team. One of our consultants, Corinne, noted, “I buy them in different colors so if I am stopping first for a few days somewhere, I only have to take out a specific color. I tell all my clients about them! If for any reason my suitcase is overweight, I open the suitcase and can carry one of the cubes if need be (happened to me in Europe actually).” Both Veken and EagleCreek are brands the team love.
A perfect addition to the packing cubes: shoe bags. Your frequent traveler will be able to keep any extra pairs they travel with contained and protect the rest of their belongings.
International Snack Boxes
Companies like Universal Yums, MunchPak, and SnackCrate curate subscription boxes with snacks from all over the world. Gift a box or short-term subscription so your loved one can taste a variety of international treats without ever leaving home.
Socks are a holiday staple! Compression socks help with circulation to prevent aches and are perfect for long flights. We love Bombas' business model which donates a pair to the homeless community for every pair purchased.
Photo Books & Gifts
Whether you’re browsing for yourself or a loved one, we hope this served as some holiday inspiration. As always, our team is available to help with any adventures this holiday season and in the new year!
