Top Five Travel Gifts for the Adventurer

‘Tis the season to start brainstorming and browsing for gifts! If you have an adventurous globe-trekker amongst your lucky recipients this year, look no further than these five must-have travel gadgets.

CamelBak UV Water Purifier

Car Rental in Europe
For your adventuresome friends who think of travel in terms of gaiters and mosquito nets rather than breakfast buffets and opera tickets, the All Clear water purifier is the perfect gift. It says “I want to show I care by helping you not get dysentery on your next trip to rural India, you crazy vagabond explorer.” The bottle is in full microbiological contaminant-busting regalia with its powerful and foolproof UV bulb, and it even has a screen that tells you when the water is safe for drinking.

Sound Oasis Alarm Clock

Car Rental in Canada
Even if you are actually enthusiastic about being roused at 4:15am so you have prime seating for the sunrise over Haleakala Crater, or so you can summit Kilimanjaro, you probably still need a reliable alarm clock. The Sound Oasis is far superior to your standard fare beep-beep-beep smoke detector-style wake up call; it boasts 18 soothing natural sounds including an exclusive jet lag reduction sequence! Compact, yet fully tricked out with every amenity you could want in an alarm clock (AC adaptor, voice memo, gradual off volume reduction and headphone jack), it is a must for those who don’t know the meaning of “sleeping in.”

Eco Pod Rugged Phone Case

Cheap Car Rental in Australia
Let’s be honest, even our crunchiest of traveler friends still tote their iPhone around in their hand woven, hemp carry-on. While they are camping on the beach in the South Pacific in hammocks crafted from banana leaves and braided coconut husk, their smartphone will be safe from the elements in this watertight, virtually indestructible case. Also convenient for your white water rafting/kayaking/wait—any outdoor sport friends, this case floats, has a waterproof headphone jack, and a handy carabiner for clipping. Its polycarbonate shell is shock resistance to boot, for those of us who are indoor kids, but just clumsy.

Leatherman Juice Cs4

Car Rental in New Zealand
You’ll find 15 daily uses for this 15-in-1 tool, whether you are camping in New England, or trekking in the Himalayas or hot air ballooning in Capodocia. Boasting everything from a serrated saw to cork screw to pliers to four different screwdriver heads (including Philips head), this multi-tool is not joking around. Whether you suddenly need to cut through sturdy rope, pull out a splinter, poke a hole (careful with that awl if you’re ballooning) or clip out a coupon, you’ll only need to reach for this one lightweight, compact lifesaver. Leave this one in your checked luggage or the TSA will have their own gift that keeps on giving.

Zeiss Victory 8×20 Binocular

UK Car Rental
These high powered peepers will not only come in handy if you are marooned on a desert isle, but they will also be a saving grace if humpback whales are breaching during sunrise off the coast of Kauai, or a rare spot-billed pelican is sighted from your treehouse in Thailand. The vivid imagery and innovative ergonomics of this set of binoculars are key, but the real kicker that makes them worth the hefty price tag is their light compactness and durability (the lenses are protected with state of the art waterproofing, nitrogen and dielectric mirror coatings).
