Travel and Happiness: 2014’s Holiday gift guide for the adventurer on your list

Stuck on what to buy that person on your life who is always on the go? While gifting all of your Air Miles might not be an option for the notoriously hard-to-buy-for souls on your list, here are a few gift ideas for those into nature, adventure or travel. Inspiration, practicality and experiences were top of mind for this year’s gift guide compilation for the Canadian traveler.

For the dreamer, give the gift of travel mags

For under $30, you can gift six issues of Canadian Geographic and four bonus issues of Canadian Geographic Travel, (my favorite Canadian travel glossies). Check it out. Can Geo Magazines For those in my home province of Saskatchewan (or beyond) consider gifting a subscription to Prairies North this year. For only $24 (and $20 for additional gift subscriptions), this is a great option for those who love all things Saskatchewan. Prairies North Magazine

Daily views that inspire make nice presents

Another fine option for under $20 is the 2015 calendar, also offered by Prairies North.
