Backpacker Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Tourist

Backpacker Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Tourist


Do you know a traveler who does travels exclusively by the (guide)book? Is your friend’s idea of travel an all-inclusive resort or cruise? Do your parents only travel on guided tours? Then you have a tourist in your life.

What are the perfect gifts for the tourist? Read on for some of my suggestions in this holiday gift guide: tourist edition.


Start with a Bag.

Briggs & Riley 24 Inch Expandable Upright
A tourist with a backpack? No way. It’s a suitcase all the way for her. And definitely not one small enough for carryon only. Go big or go home. And go luxury with a sturdy and reliable black expandable rolling suitcase from Briggs & Riley. Your tourist won’t leave home without it.


What’s in that bag?

J Pillow – Travel Pillow
A tourist will complain about the slightest amount of discomfort on any business-class flight or chartered bus. So help them make any journey a bit more comfortable with a travel pillow designed for the ultimate comfort on any long (or short)- haul journey.


Something to wear.

Hawaiian Print Shirt
Help that tourist in your life fit in perfectly with other tourists with a Hawaiian print shirt. It doesn’t matter if he’s on a cruise in Europe or Antarctica: he’ll blend in with all of the other tourists with a classy button down with a crazy print.


Something to read.

Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy
If there’s one place your tourist dreams of it’s Italy. Under the Tuscan Sun is a best seller about life in Italy. It’s the perfect read for any armchair tourist to dream about what life off the tour bus might be like.


Splurge a little.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS50S Digital Camera
Wean your tourist off iPad photography by buying them a new point and shoot. A camera of any kind is the perfect gift for a tourist, because it will never leave their hand or their vision. They will want to discover the world through their viewfinder.


How about a trip?

Tourists live for group tours. Planning anything by themselves is a little beyond them, so set them up on a tour with G Adventures!


Something Fun!

Travel Charm Bracelet
Tourists love souvenirs so help her remember all the places she saw on a quick pit stop from the tour bus with a charm bracelet. Fill it up with icons from places she saw for thirty minutes once and she can keep filling it up when she spends her time shopping at all the gift shops in Europe on her next trip.
