Can you impress a saint with a smartphone? No. Same is the case with travellers. They have been so much excitement that petty or the usual things don’t sway them much.  The fact is that impressing your traveller friend lies in the art of gifting and not everyone possesses skills of selecting the apt gift. But if you fall in the latter part and you are confused what gift can touch the heart of your friend on his/her birthday. Then I suggest can you buy one of the following gifts for your traveller friend. It is actually not that hard to make your traveller friend feel that they hold a special place in your life.

Rucksack Backpack

Backpack for the traveller is like a lifeguard jacket to a non-swimmer. While choosing a Rucksack backpack for your bestie, just check that the bag should ready to withstand all the travel trouble put on it. Its material should be strong enough that it can be hauled on trains, thrown in coaches or endure your friend’s butt when there is no place to sit. One more thing that you have to look is, does the bag you are opting has enough pockets to keep your pal’s things organized. Otherwise, there are days in every traveller’s life when the clean underwear is just hard to find out. No, even smelling doesn’t work since it is all so mixed. Oh! Please don’t assume that it has happened with me as well or rather I would say keep guessing.

Sleeping Bag

Sleeping Bag is the most basic accessory for trekkers and campers. For leaving an impression you can gift the person a customized sleeping bag. By this, I mean that you can order as per the height, extra layer of a quilt for that extra chilly nights or an added hood.  One feature which will make your gift even better is that the bag should dry fast and should be non-allergic that your friend does not end scratching his body. Also as per the gender, the space of the sleeping bag can be accommodated.

Endless journeys in wild are waiting to reveal their secret to the savvy traveller in your life.

Life Straw

Water sometimes can be a big problem while travelling. When you hike mountains or go to places which do not have any source/shops for purified water you often carry more water bottles in your backpack thus increasing the weight and making your journey tiresome. Now you can rescue yourself with life straw. It can purify water in streams, lakes or containers. Why I am telling it to you because I feel this is the product which you should gift your traveller pals so that they don’t risk their health while travelling.
