This is a delicate gift, as it means changing the decoration of the house to that loved one, but if you think they have the perfect hole in a wall, with a wooden world map you can be right.

East of Miss wood It may be a good choice.
Taking photos of yourself when you are traveling is not easy. You can always ask someone else for a favor, but expecting the results you want is risky. A tripod can be an excellent gift for those who like to take photos in their favorite destinations, and articulated tripods are a good alternative since they can also be attached to various elements or surfaces. They are small and light, so they cannot hold heavy cameras. Of course, when choosing it make sure that they can be adapted to a mobile phone.
- ‘TRAVEL’ by Lonely Planet

- A reusable water bottle
This is a perfect gift for travelers committed to the planet. A reusable bottle will allow us to take advantage of taps, fountains or large carafes wherever we go, without the need to constantly buy water bottles and thus save large amounts of plastic. The steel ones are the most recommended and there are those that are made of thermos, keeping the liquids both cold and hot. If they have some kind of clip to secure them to the backpack, all the better.
- An interactive globe
Here we have a good idea for the little ones to discover the world. We give you the example of Oregon Scientific, but there are other brands like Clementoni or Diset that offer similar options. It not only serves to review geography, but also to learn curiosities both about countries and their cities and about planet Earth itself. With an electronic pen and following the directions given by the globe through its speaker, we can travel the world playing and learning.
- A water purifying filter
This is a good idea for the more adventurous travelers, those who go into nature or travel to exotic destinations. A water filter can be a good ally when it comes to drinking unsafe water if necessary. There are those that make a straw, to drink from a container or a river, or those that are incorporated in a bottle. They are designed to eliminate practically all bacteria and protozoa that can occur in water and are considered a vital element for survival in extreme situations.

- A baby carriage for the plane
A fantastic idea if you want to give a good gift to traveling parents is a baby carriage that can be carried as carry-on luggage. In other words, a one-piece trolley that once folded complies with the measures that airlines require for their cabin luggage. There are not many brands that offer such small carts, but some like Babyzen, Easywalker, GB or Ergobaby offer options that pass as carry-on luggage.
Airlines are usually very rigorous when it comes to checking luggage. Sometimes they pass small excesses of weight, but sometimes not. Perhaps at home we can opt for the typical bathroom scale, but a luggage scale will be much more accurate and can also be transported to reweigh the suitcase before taking the flight back. They are inexpensive, occupy little and you can find them both digital and analog.
