Parting Gifts for People Traveling


Increasing numbers of people are heading overseas to travel for extended periods of time. If a friend or family member happens to be doing this, you are bound to be excited for them, but you are also going to miss them while they are away on their adventure. It’s not all too surprising that you may want to offer them a parting gift to show that you care for them! Now, seeing as travelers tend to travel light, you’re going to want to make sure that your gift is small, as well as functional and useful for them. So, here are a few ideas to make sure your gift is both thoughtful and practical.

A Travel First Aid Kit

Let’s start with safety first. You’re probably going to have concerns about your loved one’s safety and wellbeing while they are away. This is only natural. As long as they have had their recommended vaccinations and act responsibly while they are away, they should be equally safe as if they were back home. However, you can always help them to tackle minor problems along the way by gifting them a travel first aid kit. You can get these kits ready packed, or you can create one yourself. Try to make sure that it contains bandages, plasters, medical tape, a small pair of scissors, an eye bath, and antiseptic wipes. If you are particularly thoughtful, you could also add over-the-counter medication such as Imodium or Pepto Bismol, plasters especially designed to prevent and protect blisters, and treatments for bug bites.

A Toiletry Bag

A toiletry bag is an absolute essential when it comes to traveling. Many people find this out the hard way - a toiletry product that has been left open, burst, or leaked in your bag can destroy tech or paper-based items you may be carrying and will generally mean having to wash the entire contents of your bag in order to have clean dry clothes. This is extremely inconvenient when you are away from home. A John Henric toiletry bag for men can contain any spills or leaks, preventing this problem from occurring in the first place!

A Battery Pack

People tend to use their phone less for socializing while they are traveling, however, a smartphone can prove to be an essential tool for travelers all the same. It can give them the means to call for help if needed, as well as serving as a map, and a means of translating what they want to say into a local language. So, they’re going to want to make sure that their device is fully charged at all times. This can be relatively difficult if they are away from sources of power for extended periods of time. This is where a rechargeable external battery pack can come in extremely useful. These can be charged up and will store power until it is required, allowing the traveler to top up their battery levels at any given time.

These are just a few ideas when it comes to gifts for travelers, but they are all extremely useful and functional, so well worth your consideration!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
