5 Best Gifts for Long-term Travelers
Have someone in your life that tends to stay in one place for a while (such as someone living in an RV)? Maybe they’ve seen all that they wanted to see?
If so, you have the easiest gift-giving job! Because your traveling friends tend to stay at one location for a few weeks or months, they’re able to take more “materialistic” items, such as the ones listed below.
This doesn’t mean, however, that they can store a bunch of stuff! I’d stick to getting your stationary travelers one or two gifts from the list below as well as something listed above (the less clutter the better)!
