I don’t know about you, but I suck at buying presents. I always have and I’m pretty sure that I always will. It’s probably the minimalist inside of me that looks at things and thinks who needs that (despite the fact that most people love it).
The same goes for when I receive presents. I have been told that I am hard to buy for many of times before. It’s not that I don’t appreciate presents, it’s just that I don’t find a need for a new $100 candle, bath soap or household product.
I’m sure this a problem that all travellers experience. If you’re only home for a few weeks, what are you going to do with a new candle or set of knives?
If you can relate, I have some great news for you. I have found the PERFECT gift idea for travellers (Hint hint, family and friends).
The perfect gift idea for travellers
So what is this perfect gift idea?
It’s called Gifting Owl.
Gifting Owl is a gifting platform with experiences across the world (in over 80 countries).
This means that your mum could buy you a Gifting Owl voucher and you could use it at a winery in New Zealand, on a bike tour in Iceland, a zip lining tour in Costa Rica or hot air ballooning in Turkey. The options are literally endless.
And if by the rare chance you can’t find something to use it on (or you are dead broke on your sister’s birthday), you can re-gift the voucher. The person you re-gift the voucher to will never know that it was given to you as a gift.
You can choose to gift a certain experience or any amount.
A Gifting Owl voucher is extremely versatile and one of the most useful things you could purchase a traveller. So next time you’re thinking of a gift idea, stay away from the homeware store and purchase a Gifting Owl voucher instead. What’s even better is that you don’t have to leave the house, you can purchase it online. Another huge benefit to last-minute present buyers like me.
Friends, family…. If you are reading this, you know what to buy me for my next present.
