How to choose the right travel gifts for her?
The best travel gifts are those that show you are aware of her travel passion and plans. She will love an item or gadget that will be very useful for her next adventure or trip. Alternatively, if you gift her a trip or experience, go for those locations and activities that you know are on her bucket list.
If you have no idea what her travel plans or desires are, try to first check with close friends or family members. Don’t just buy her any travel gift. She won’t need an inflatable mattress if she’s planning to visit Iceland.
What is better: physical travel gifts or experiences?
Both can be great and well-appreciated travel gifts for women. Yet you will want to base your choice on her upcoming travel plans or desires.
She will love any useful item or gadget that will come in handy during her next adventure. Not just because it’s useful, but also because it shows you knew about her plans and hence are involved in her life.
Alternatively, yet more difficult to plan ahead, is giving her a travel experience as a gift. If she was planning to make a trip, but you make it even more special by adding a unique experience while there (f.e. a helicopter ride, excursion, balloon trip, etc).
She will love such travel gifts, yet you do need to know a lot of details about her plans to make them worthwhile. Usually, travel experiences are gifted by friends or partners that are part of the trip and hence know the agenda.
Should I gift her a full trip?
Most people won’t be upset when they receive a full trip as a gift.
However, there are some things you should take into consideration:
- Limited holidays: She might not have so many holidays left this year, so before you give her the gift of travel, you will want to double-check this with friends or family.
- Choosing the dates: on top, it’s also not easy to lock in a slot without consulting her. She might have a busy time at work and not be able to leave on a trip.
- Preferences: If you plan the full trip for her, there is a chance she might like some parts or regret not being able to do other things while there. Hence, leaving some flexibility is a great idea.
