For the Disney Darling
The Disney Darling plans visits to see Mickey at the drop of the hat, she’s already got four trips planned this year, but will jump at any discounted flight to get her booty back to Orlando or Los Angeles! The Disney Darling shops small, wears ears, eats churros, and can sing along to any ride theme music.
Honestly, the best way to go here is a Disney Gift Card, your Disney Darling will be incredibly grateful! These cards can be used at any Disney Store, online, or anywhere on property. That means that you could be contributing to their next park ticket, hotel stay, castle luncheon, or favorite stuffed animal. Usually, I don’t like to promote gift cards because they feel impersonal, however, for a Disney Darling, a gift card is truly a key to the kingdom. Bonus! Pick up the gift card at your local grocery store & use a cash back credit card like this American Express that gives 6% cash back at grocery stores! Or pick it up at Target using your RedCard which gives you 5% off every day!
If you don’t want to get a gift card for your Disney Darling, I recommend some small shops!
My current favorites are:
For the Eco Explorer
The Eco Explorer doesn’t only thrive in nature, she can appreciate the finer things too, but all the while, she understands the impact that travel has on Mother Nature and knows that using straws can harm our precious marine life. Get your Eco Explorer some travel accessories that will help minimize her affect on planet earth.
- This travel set of bamboo cutlery rolls up, perfect for your Eco Explorer to use while camping or eating street food.
- This travel pack of 2 silicon straws or this collapsable aluminum straw are perfect for your Eco Explorer who will love knowing that plastic straws aren’t going in to our oceans.
- Solar powered battery pack– nobody likes a dead cell phone, your Eco Explorer will appreciate charging her favorite devices with nature’s battery- the sun!
For the Resort Relaxer
The resort relaxer has one mission and one mission only, to maximize her relaxation factor. Whether it’s poolside at a 5-star resort, or on her favorite panhandle beach, the Resort Relaxer knows how to tune out the world and soak up the sun. Gift her some adorable accessories to boost her spring vacays!
- Tory Burch flip flops
- A big ‘ole sun hat
- Corksicle wine tumbler for pool-side cocktails
- Reef safe sunscreen
- Your favorite beach read, or a Book of the Month Subscription
For the Fitness Fanatic
Some people really enjoy getting to know a new city by jogging through it, others travel a lot for work and want to stay fit on the road. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a ClassPass gift card for your Fitness Fanatic, she will love getting to try a yoga class when dealing with a difficult client, or exploring a local park through a group class. Other ideas for your Fitness Fanatic include:
For the Destination Diva
Destination Divas are all about getting as many passport stamps as possible! She can discuss Manhattan museums, European countrysides, Asian street food, and South American mountains with the best of ‘em. She knows that having the perfect passport cover and crossbody bag are imperative for any day out. Get your Destination Diva a purse that can hold a camera, some comfortable but cute walking shoes, a new passport cover, or European wallet! The Destination Diva isn’t just about the destination, she understands that the journey is part of the adventure, you can’t go wrong with a carry-on cocktail kit to help make her overseas flight more enjoyable!
For the Boss Lady
The boss lady’s one busy gal, whether she’s running her own firm, crushing it in court, managing multiple media accounts, she keeps her schedule tight. Consider gifts to help with her productivity or to manage stress. If she’s old school (like me) consider a paper planner and a nice set of pens, if she’s in to technology, consider Timeular, a six-sided pyramid to help with time tracking and management, or noise cancelling headphones to keep our background sounds. If she’s a bit of a stress cadet (also like me) consider a set of travel size candles, bubble bath, or adult coloring book (like this silly one, or this one which doubles as a gift for you Disney Darling).
For the fashionable boss lady, consider a pair of Banana Republic Madison 12-hour Pump (yest they really are comfy after 12 hours!!) or a Stitch Fix gift card! If you opt for the blazer route, make sure the blazer has at least one functional pocket!
For The Frequent Flier & the Budget Babe
The Budget Babe and the Frequent Flier are two sides of the same coin. While both travel as often as possible, the Frequent Flier sticks with her fave airline and will pay the extra penny, she racks up miles and knows when to use them. On the other hand, the Budget Babe does not fear the stiff seats and personal item limitation, she is an expert at hunting down deals and gathering big savings!
Be cautious of gifting big travel accessories to the Budget Babe, there’s a good chance she only takes a personal item with her on most trips! Your Frequent Flier on the other hand probably has so much status that she can check bags on bags for free- she could also probably use a new luggage piece!
- Noise cancelling ear buds– perfect for fitting in any small bag
- Trtl Neck Pillow
- Travel Away suitcase– get $20 off with this link!
- Rechargeable Battery Pack
For the Gram Girl
She’ll do anything “for the ‘gram”- she’ll step out to any ledge, taste any food, and hop on any midnight flight if it means getting that next great shot!
Treat your Gram Girl to some editing software light Adobe Lightroom, memory makers such as an adventure camera like a GoPro or a selfie stick that doubles as a tripod; a lit LuMee phone case to make selfies pop; or a handheld ring light to improve even the darkest of food photos!
For the Local Tourist
The Local Tourist is one of the most adventurous spirit out there! She may like staying close to home, but she’s no homebody- she likes exploring unique eats, botanical gardens, nearby hikes, and finding fun places for a GNO!
Try finding new activities for her to try, tickets to the local botanical garden, food festivals, theme parks, museums, aquariums, and more! Search #Staycay + City on Instagram for activities to feel like you’re on vacation! Check out #StaycayAtlanta here!
