We all know someone who is rather difficult to buy for when Christmas comes around, but during the holiday season there is usually a wide choice of gifts in the stores to pick from. However, it’s not so easy to find something for their birthdays, so this often needs a little ‘outside the box’ thinking. It’s a little deflating to see someone unwrap their gift only to discover it’s yet another sweater that they won’t be wearing or a book they have no intention of reading. If the recipient likes traveling around the world, here are four perfect presents that could just fit the bill.
Just giving someone a little money for their birthday seems like something of a cop-out usually, but if the cash is in the currency of a country they’re planning to visit in the not too distant future it can really hit the spot. For an added extra touch, make sure the money is in a little gift envelope or wallet, and for an added flourish why not wrap it in paper that is printed with the national flag of the country that’s being visited?
Even the most passionate travelers can find airline flights rather tedious and uncomfortable, so anything that makes the trip more bearable has to be a good idea. There is an enormous selection on the market these days, ranging from U-shaped versions that wrap comfortably around the neck to ones that fit completely over the head, and that make the passenger look a little like a deep sea driver.
In the past, many of us would take several books on holiday with us, and include one or two in the flight bag in order to avoid boredom when flying. These days, the purchase of a qood quality e-reader means we can take hundreds of books in one convenient small gadget. Whether you prefer edge of the seat thrillers or fascinating biographies, you can get your reading fix without going over the luggage allowance limits.
We’ve all taken hundreds of pictures on holidays in the past, but aren’t those images of beaches, lighthouses, churches and restaurants getting a little tired now? For something a little different, why not get that special someone an underwater camera instead? Most of us like to go swimming on seaside vacations, and photos of the bottom of the sea would make a wonderful change from the norm.
