Jumia Travel. 12+ Travel Gifts to get for your Loved Ones this Christmas


A great part of traveling, equally as wonderful as the entire experience, fun and adventure is the thrill of returning home. And perhaps what makes it as great, is the joy of having you back and the excitement of what you brought back for your loved ones. Let’s not even play, Oyoyo is not to be joked with around these parts. If you aren’t thinking about it broadly enough you are probably thinking what more is there to take back home aside from chocolates and biscuits? On the surface it seems great but then it is so cliché and doesn’t well represent and bear memories of your travels and adventures. Chocolates and biscuits are too easily consumed and forgotten about. 

So what travel gifts can you get for your loved ones?

Before I ramble on about that I would also do well to reverse the positions and suggest gifts to get for your loved ones who love traveling.

Gifts to Buy When You Travel

Souvenirs.
These could be a local piece of art, a hand-made craft, a framed picture, a t-shirt bearing tribute to the city or town you visited anything that serves as a memorabilia of your adventure.Paintings. Wood and metal work. Bronze work and a ton of others that your loved one would be excited to receive.


Books.
From a local author. Or a language book of the region. Even a recipe and cookery book too would be great. It carries the country or city you visited through those pages to the laps of who you gift them to.


Food
As long as it is well preserved and won’t go bad before your arrival, local delicacies that are well packed and sealed can make great travel gifts. They are remarkably different from anything else that can be gotten from the local store and would tell the person more about the place of your visit than chocolates and biscuits would.


Coins
And paper currency if you would. But coin collecting is a hobby for many for a reason. A collection of coins from your several countries of visit from the Nigerian Kobo to the Russian Ruble.


Postcards
There are still unrepentant romantics who fancy postcards. You can get them customized to add a personal touch and it would remain appreciated for a long time to come.


Your Travel Memoir
If it is robust and rich and filled with heroic stories of saving a baby deer from a marauding lioness in the Safari, a travel memoir could make a great gift.

Gift Ideas for Travelers

If your significant other or sibling, friend or colleague absolutely loves to travel, any one of these gift items would be great for them.


Camera
All the memories they would create with every snapshot they take would be grateful to you


Backpack
There is nothing that is as essential for the serial traveler as a backpack that can take in their most important items as they set off on another adventure. Get them something rugged well designed with lots of spaces. You would have their heart forever.


Compass
A little bit old school, especially with mobile devices coming equipped with maps and applications that give directions. But a compass is still a serious traveler gear and the Christopher Columbus in him would thank you.


Hotel Reservations
Hotel reservations can also make an amazing gift item for the perpetual traveler. If there is a loved one you want to surprise, book them into an all-expenses paid weekend at a resort near them. The Epe Resort and La Campagne Tropicana are a few in Lagos that you could take advantage of.


Travel Mug/Food Flask
To store water and food in, an essential travelers item that cannot be rated enough.


Power Bank
Surely they would need to power their mobile devices away from their hotel rooms or whatever accommodation they are in while on their adventure. Personally I would love this.

 

This list is by no means exhaustive. There are lots and lots of items a person can still get when coming back from a trip or for a loved one who loves to travel. Headsets, easy wear slippers, neck rests, traveling suitcase, bracelets and lockets, the list is endless. The trick might be to check the stores in and around the airport before departure as well as local markets, arts and museum centers, local online stores. If you are not buying you could make them. How? Let’s say you travel and visit the Coffee Bay, Wild Coast in South Africa, gather some sea shells, get some paint, do your best impression of Picasso and there, you have a collection of specially painted sea shells as gift for your friends.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
