When it comes to gift-giving, the traveler in your life might cause you to pause. After all, they’re clearly savvy, adventurous and well-outfitted—and a simple gift card probably won’t do. Never fear: Smithsonian.com’s travel staff has compiled a list of great gifts for people who’ve just got to get away.
