Whether they’re currently on the road or taking some time at home to plan their next adventure, it can be difficult to buy a great gift for an ardent nomad. They travel light, and even if they have a permanent residence they won’t want it cluttered with the usual seasonal detritus. Maybe they’ve been away so long you can’t remember what they look like, let alone what they’d like for Christmas.
Our Christmas travel gift guide has got you covered. We’ve put together a wishlist packed with great gift ideas, whatever your price range, so you can keep the traveller in your life happy (before they disappear again).
