Venezuela. Wouldn’t that be a nice change of scenery right now? That’s where my friend and fearless traveler Pete is traveling to right this minute and it would only be the start of his South America adventure trip.
He’s the big brother I never had and met when I was only 18 years old. For years he worked hard on his career, almost trapped behind the screen as a software engineer day and night. I am glad to see him do something just right out of his comfort zone. And as the awesome sister that I am, of course, I make sure that he’ll have everything he needs to support, nurture and accompany him on the road (or mountains).
Therefore today’s holiday gift guide is dedicated to the fearless traveler and guys in our lives who never really need anything but would be happy about a little extra love for sure.
1 | SAVE THE MALES a moisturizer by Origins that’s perfect for sensitive skin in need of that extra kick of multi-beneficial skincare. Packaged in a tube it comes in quite handy while traveling as well and will probably last him for the whole trip since a little goes a long way.
2 | INTO THE WILD might be the most appropriate read for his adventure. And since he was repeatedly telling me that he needs to read the book after we watched the movie together – here you go! Have you read it?
3 | COSY SWEATER a versatile sweater like this affordable one will quickly become the favorite in his bag. A beige-grey (greige?) mixed wool fabric that keeps him warm and still makes for a nice eye-catcher, don’t you think?
4 | ADVENTURE TRAVEL DIARY to fit his thoughts and adventure ticket stubs of course. A total upgrade from a simple photo book, this will make him happy to look at for many years and he might even tell his grandchildren about his awesome trip back in the day…
5 | HOT TEA-TO-GO TUMBLER for the guy that, judging by his black tea intake alone, could be British. During his exams a few years ago, he basically lived on black tea and tacos. This hot tea-designed tumbler would make him a very happy man for sure.
6| ROOT BEER LIP BALM for the guys out there who would never think of such a fancy un-necessity like a lip balm, but root beer as the main ingredient basically transfers this into a male-must-have. Oh, makes total sense now (eye roll)!
7 | BEARD GROOMING KIT BY MONSTER&SON is another all-rounder in his travel bag. The fresh and woodsy scent is worth a sniff or two. It’s an all-natural hydrating formula packed with hemp seed oil and jojoba oil. And since he planned on growing a beard anyways, a total win-win in my book.
8 | MEN’S KIT (TOILETRY BAG) to fit all of his skincare bits and other accessories. The charcoal grey thick fabric is perfect for the occasion and is neither too big nor too small when it comes to packing.
9 | LET’S GO ON AN ADVENTURE LEATHER BRACELET this custom-made gem quickly caught my eye and would make for a rad gift to my best friend on tour. The various colors can be personalized with a quote or even the geographical coordinates of a special place. I’d totally go for that vibrant green and the stats of his hometown as this would be a nice memory to look at, wherever in the world he might be.
