Carrying a map while traveling is standard. But there has always been the problem of maps crumpling up and becoming hard to read. They get bent over and over again and eventually the ink starts to wear off and fade. A map that is designed to be crumpled up without fading would come in very handy.
Pictures are a good way to keep memories but some people prefer something a little more tangible. A travel stub diary is like a photo album of the places you’ve traveled to. But instead of pictures, you collect ticket stubs. The stubs can be from flights, museums visits, train rides, anything that paints the picture of your travels.
Anything that makes traveling more comfortable and pleasant is a good gift idea. Neck pillows are perfect for anyone who has trouble resting on an airplane. To pass the time, puzzle books such as Sudoku are great for staying entertained.
One of the most overlooked details while traveling is the weight of your luggage. This can easily lead to being charged extra for going over the weight limit. Digital luggage scales make a great gift idea because they are small enough to travel with and can save someone many a headache.
Like your neighborhood boy scout, anyone who travels for a living understands the importance of being prepared. That’s why frequent flyers carry a small arsenal of gadgets to handle any problem that pops up.
