Holiday Gift Guide: for the Travel Enthusiast
We’re celebrating the holidays all season long with unique gift guides for everyone on your list! Up first, we’re sharing our favorite gifts for the globetrotter in your life.
Gift a Book from an Independent Author
Blurb’s Bookstore contains thousands of titles from independent and DIY authors with dozens of categories to browse through. Oleg Ershov’s coffee table book contains fine art landscape photos taken by the author during ten photo trips to Iceland from 2009 to 2017.
Keep Calm and Carry On
Our friends over at Timbuk2 have been making bags built to last a lifetime right here in San Francisco since 1989. For those on your list with insatiable wanderlust, may we suggest the Quest Duffle? Available in 3 colors and 3 sizes. We’re fans of the Medium size so you can pack everything you need and still carry on the plane.
Spoil ’em with a Camera
Go big or go home! This Fujifilm X100 camera is perfect for travelers since it’s both light-weight and compact enough to throw in their bag while they explore. For those who are more than amateur photographers, this camera has plenty of extras to keep them creating professional images for years to come.
Words to Live By
Lauren Hom of Hom Sweet Hom is the Queen of hand lettering! Her beautiful canvas prints would make the perfect addition to a gallery wall or dorm room. This fine art print is printed on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Other designs are available on her Society6 page.
Explore San Francisco in Style
The city known for peace and love just got even groovier! Introducing Vantigo, the coolest way to explore San Francisco. Whether you’re visiting the city for the first time or a local looking to spice up their weekends, you will love riding around in these refurbished 1970’s Volkswagen vans. Vantigo packages range from hitting up the city’s urban breweries to touring the city’s biggest landmarks, so there’s something for everyone.
Just in time for the holidays, Vantigo is giving Blurb users 20% off with code: 3GL90LWV. Expires 12/31/17.
Shop Small, Handmade Goods
Made in California, this Western-styled trigger snap leather keychain comes in black with nickel hardware or brown with brass hardware. Fastened with copper rivets and about 6 inches long, it’s perfect to hook on to a belt loop or ring on a purse.
