Holiday Gift Guide for Travelers

This holiday gift guide for the travel nurse will help you get the perfect gift for the traveler in your life.

The holidays are quickly approaching. Halloween is gone, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. With less than 7 weeks until Christmas / Hanukkah, the time for making your holiday purchases is now. This Gypsy Gift guide will help make your holiday shopping easier. 

Gift Guide for Male Travel Nurse

Badge Reels – Etsy has a lot of badge reels that are specifically designed for the more masculine.

For the male nurse with a beard, there are many ‘travel’ grooming kits like this one from Amazon.

Gift Guide for Female Travel Nurse

Products for organizing small items like Jewelry are a good bet for the female traveler in your life.

With limited space and a need for a diverse and durable wardrobe, this clothing line from FIG Clothing might just fit the bill.

FIG® Clothing is a Canadian sportswear brand for active, urban, and elegant women who love to travel. The collection is inspired by adventure and practicality. It is designed for those in need of versatility. FIG’s mission is to offer a sophisticated alternative to traditional travel wear, an alternative that showcases the womanly body and makes it possible to feel at ease in all sorts of situations: in an urban setting like Manhattan or a Tanzanian safari.”

Gift Guide for all Travelers

Give your traveler a reason to document their travels with this great 50 States Traveled journal from Uncommon Goods.

Any traveler knows that having an extra power backup for their phone is essential! This RavPower portable power bank has two USB ports, works with Android and iPhone, and as a bonus, it has a flashlight.

The JBL Flip is one of my personal favorite travel companions. Music at the beach, on the road, anywhere!

This scratch-off travel journal from Luckies in London is fun and compact. Perfect for the travel nurse.

For the traveler with difficulty sleeping with noise, these Noise-Masking Sleepbuds could be a great addition for your traveler.

Don’t guess…Ask!

Don’t think you’ll ruin the surprise by asking what your traveler wants or misses for the holidays. Sometimes it’s the simple things that we can’t get or things that provide us a feeling of comfort or home that mean the most. If you need more ideas, here are 6 Gifts to Buy a Travel Nurse. 

“One year, my step-mother asked me what I missed for thanksgiving and my response “fresh corn and buckeyes”. A week later, I received a care package from her with a can of corn and a batch of home-made buckeyes. We both laughed so hard over the can of corn but, it was a gift I’ll never forget.” – Candy

Is there a favorite spice/ingredient/item that your traveler can’t get in their location? Something unique to their hometown? An inside joke related to a product that only you and they would know? Think outside of the box when considering your gift-giving.
