Do you know a guy who travels? Is your boyfriend itching to leave it all behind to see the world? Is your son planning a gap year after college or a career break? Then you know a male backpacker.
What are the perfect gifts for the male backpacker? Read on for some of my suggestions in this holiday gift guide: male backpacker edition.
Gifts for the Male Backpacker
Start with a Bag.
Osprey Packs Talon 33 Backpack
A backpack is important to a backpacker. It’s the only place he has to store everything he owns. It will go everywhere he goes. Get his something li and high-performance this year, like this Osprey Talon pack. It’s light and not too big, but just perfect for carrying everything he needs to see the world.
What’s in that bag?
Swiss Army Knife
What guy doesn’t want knives for Christmas? And what backpacker couldn’t use a Swiss army knife. This multitool is an essential in any guy’s bag, giving him the ability to use a multitude of tools, whether he needs the bottle opener feature to crack open a cold one or the corkscrew feature to pop open a bottle of vino in hopes of popping the cherry on a Brazilian mulher.
Something to wear.
Chang Beer Men’s Singlet Tank Top
Every male backpacker’s wardrobe eventually whittles down to a handful of beer-branded tanks from countries around the world. Beat him to it and stock his backpack with Chang singlets before he even hits Khao San Road.
Something to read.
Lonely Planet The World: A Traveller’s Guide to the Planet
There’s one thing you can be certain about any male backpacker: he wants to see it all. Lonely Planet’s new guidebook to the world is the perfect addition to his bookshelf full of other Lonely Planet titles.
Splurge a little.
A guy needs books to get him through those long bus rides and long lonely nights. But who wants to carry around a stack of paperbacks? A Kindle e-reader is a perfect addition to that male traveler’s bag.
How about a trip?
Any male backpacker would be thrilled if you sent him on a trip. So gift him a group tour with G Adventures! He’ll get to see the world and you’ll know exactly when and where he’s going for once.
What male traveler doesn’t dream of strapping a guitar to the back of his backpack? It’s the backpacker dream to bust out that guitar in the hostel and become the center of attention, everyon’s new best friend, and the desire of all the foreign ladies. Help him make his dream come true with a new guitar this Christmas. And maybe some lessons.
