Gift for someone traveling
My close friend is about to partake in an 18 month trip around SE Asia. She'll be teaching english in a few different countries along the way so she won't be constantly on the road, but I was hoping to get her some small but memorable gift before she leaves. Just wondering if anyone had any good ideas
I would say a phone card so they can keep intouch, maybe a tiny photobook with the phone card in it. One of our friends gave us a 20$ worth of baht (Thailand currency) with explicit instructions to have a drink with it at the top of the Banyan Tree Hotel in Bangkok. We are stoked about fulfilling her gift. Anything of a large size (in our experience) is not extremely useful. Good luck and let us know what you decided!
We are finally getting outta here!
Perhaps you could give here a day of travel or something like that by giving a visa or amex gift card.
On the one hand it's of course the thought that counts when buying a gift, but I can relate to the feeling that you really can't carry a lot when you go for a while, and feel bad if someone gives you something that you don't take.
To clarify, she is not traveling that much and will only be staying in hostels for a small portion of her trip. She has 3 apartments lined up and will be staying in them 98% of the time while she works. She will only be traveling when she gets vacation from her working schedule. Thats why I wasn't sure if this was the appropriate forum because she won't be constantly on the move.
Locket with picture or lock of her favorite horse's tail or whatever...
A really cool bookmark (Brighton makes some)
Small journal with quality paper
Tiny ballpoint that writes in any position
Fancy keychain for all those apartment keys
Tiny brass bell to ward off evil spirits on the road (mine hangs from my cinch most of the time, but I reckon it'd work just as well hanging from a pack)
