Holiday Gift Guides: The Avid Explorer
With the after Thanksgiving sales officially kicking off holiday shopping season we’re bringing you our series of gift guides for everyone on your list. We’ve rounded up pieces we would personally want to give and receive- organized by interest, so whatever your recipient is into, be it cooking, traveling or crafting, you can pick up something they’ll love.
Whether their travel style is more European hostel than four-star hotel (or vice versa) if your recipient treats their coveted vacation days as the ultimate reason for showing up to work in the first place, or even eschews a traditional job for something with a lot more flexibility (insta-famous #vanlife enthusiast?) you’re shopping for the avid explorer. Make their next journey even better with one of our picks for a suitcase that charges your device for you to a fully customizable set of Windsam Field Guides to their favorite destinations.
