With the holidays right around the corner, it's high time to start thinking about what gifts to get for your loved ones. Shopping for avid travelers, in particular, can be tricky, especially if they've seen so much of the world already. However, these will always stand to be brilliant gift ideas for travelers these coming Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

First, you can never go wrong with a good travel book. If your loved one already has a particular destination in mind for his/her next trip, then a guide book to that country will make for an excellent gift. It is not only informative and useful, but it will make for a great in-flight read.

If a destination is not yet known, then you can never go wrong with a book that's about travelers and travelling as a whole. Travel and Leisure recommends the book "the Explorers". It is described as a book about fearlessness, resourcefulness, and success; a story your traveler will surely appreciate.

If you're looking to spend a little more dough, then photography equipment can never do you wrong. Travelers love documenting their discoveries through photos, and the addition of new lenses, carrying cases, and filters always make for more creative products.

However, if you're considering these as potential gifts, then it's always best to do some research first. You wouldn't want to get your traveler something he/she already has or doesn't need. Be sure to take note of the camera's make and model too.

Another brilliant idea is buying. Though you might be tempted by bright colors and funky designs, it's always best to go for security and versatility, especially if your intended recipient is keen on backpacking. 

You'll want to get something that's lightweight yet durable. And remember that extra space is always a plus. Be on the lookout for luggage that features lots of compartments for organization. In addition, a waterproof feature is always helpful, especially when battling against weather.

If you already know the kind of travelling your intended recipient is into, shoes can be a no-brainer gift idea. A pair of comfortable, durable, and stylish shoes can make all the difference in the world of a traveler, since they will most likely be doing a lot of exploration on foot. 

According to The Savvy Backpacker, brands such as Clarks, Puma, Nike and Petagonia are great affordable choices when looking for durability. However, these brand options are dependent on the kind of shoe you're looking for: whether casual, athletic, or hiking.

The best tip for gift shopping is to know what suits your receiver. Since your recipient is a traveler, then you'll always be looking for functionality, durability, and versatility. Keeping these three in mind when shopping will almost always guarantee a successful gift-giving.
