December is finally here and that means Christmas is just around the corner! Contrary to belief, right now is actually the best time to do all your holiday shopping, not last minute! So while you create your shopping list, you have to carefully think about each person you're buying a Christmas gift for this year. If you're stuck and don't know what to get that wanderlusting traveler friend of yours, you've come to the right place!
The obvious choice would be to buy them plane tickets or a gift package at some hotel resort on an exotic island. These gifts, however, can be pretty pricey and not all of us can afford them.
