Whether you are perusing a guidebook for suggestions on local restaurants, or passing time in an airport with a classic novel, having access to reading material is a must for any traveler. An e-reader will allow the traveler in your life to transport their favorite tales to faraway places for a fraction of the weight.

How to Choose a Gift for a Traveler

Gift a set of noise canceling headphones. Let’s face it. Air travel can be downright noisy. A screaming baby or a seatmate listening to lousy music a little too loudly can turn an uncomfortable plane ride into one that is nearly unbearable. Save the sanity of your favorite traveler by giving them a set of noise canceling headphones.

Consider a headphone splitter for traveling couples. If your favorite traveler tends to see the world with their significant other in tow, a headphone splitter will allow the couple to watch movies or listen to podcasts at the same time.

Even if they aren’t a self-pronounced writer, the gift of a journal can inspire your favorite traveler to start taking note of their journeys. Opt for lightweight journals that can fit easily in a shoulder bag or backpack, allowing the traveler to quickly access the journal on bus, plane, or train.

How to Choose a Gift for a Traveler

Gift an e-book. If there is a traveler in your life that loves to read, an e-book is a great, weightless gift option for their next journey.
