Gifts for Travelers in this Pandemic World
Ticket to Ride is a board game that has been around for a long time. It’s wildly popular and wildly fun. You can get Ticket to Ride United States, Europe, Asia, United Kingdom, etc. Ticket to Ride World Rides & Sails covers the whole world, which is the version I prefer.
1000 Places to see Before You Die is a classic book that’s been around for a few years now. It’s a fun, inspiring and affordable gift to give someone for the holidays. An alternative is 1000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die.
US$10 – $30
Every year I would create my own wall calendars with photos of all my travels over the years and give them out to my family members with Walgreens. Yes, Walgreens! They always turned out fantastic. You can do it all online and either pick it up in the store or have it delivered to you.
9. Snack Boxes from Around the World
$14 – $36/box
I absolutely love these snack boxes from around the world. Each month, you get a box filled with snacks from a different country. They’ve got Japan, the Philippines, Colombia, Italy, etc. But the fun thing is that you never know what country you’re going to get each month.
Best Practical Travel Gifts for a Post-COVID World
15. Kindle Fire
Probably the best gift you can give someone on this list is a Kindle Fire. Not only can you use it as an ereader, but you can also use it to watch videos (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime), browse the web, read email, and play computer games. And it’s so darn affordable! I’ve had both the Fire 7 Tablet and the Fire 8 Tablet. I prefer the Fire 7 for travel due to its size.
