Gifts For Vacation

Ah, vacation. For many, this is the only time of the year that they are able to have a change of pace and scenery. For the last couple of years, vacation has been more of a staycation for most of us.

Now that people are able to leave home and go on actual vacations again, it is always nice to give or receive something to make it more fun and enjoyable. So let’s pack, load up and be on our way with Gifts for vacation!

Small travel gifts for vacation

Have you ever wondered what to give someone who is going on vacation?

Sometimes it is the thought that counts more than the gift. Even so, there are great small travel gifts that can be purchased for those going on vacation.

And while gift cards are not all that glamourous, when someone is traveling by plane, most major airports have fast-food courts with Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, and a host of others. It is a simple way for your friend to have lunch to carry on the plane.

If you know far enough in advance when someone is going on vacation, there are many attractive and practical vacation planners such as these.

Whether someone is traveling by plane, train, bus, or automobile, they probably will be sleeping some of the time. I love the idea of “neck pillows”, but some are soooo big they take up a lot of space. Others have to be inflated. That is why I like the Trtl pillow. It is a good compromise between the two. The end is stiff enough to hold your head upright.

If your budget is hurting, you don’t have to spend a lot to give vacation gifts.

Probably one of the nicest things that you can do is remind your friend that you will be praying for them.

Prayer for a friend’s vacation

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am so excited for my friend as she goes on vacation. I know sometimes the getter ready to go can be a frazzling time, trying to get all the to-do lists completed. I ask that as she prepares that she will keep in mind that sometimes things don’t always go as planned and that is OK.

And Lord, going on vacation means sleeping in a different environment and a different bed. May my friend experience refreshing sleep so that she can enjoy her time away from daily responsibilities.

I ask that you will give my friend the opportunity to see you at work in her life and in the lives of others that she comes in contact with. When she sees your creation around her may she also see your fingerprints in all that you have created.

Most of all, Lord, I ask that my friend will be aware of your presence with her at all times. I ask you to protect her and give her peace in all situations while she is away.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Vacation is a time for a change of pace and scenery. It is a time of refreshment while charging our emotional batteries.
