Christmas shopping for the constant traveller is not always an easy task.
After all, what do you get someone who's always on the go? Well, as glamorous as the idea of 24/7 globe-trotting sounds, the reality is less than picture-perfect.
Between the jet-lag they’ll face with during those double-digit hour-long flights or fighting for some peace and quiet on that jam-packed bus, there are some downsides to a typically awesome lifestyle.
Fortunately, it's the season for giving and in this day and age, if there’s a problem then there’s a good chance a gadget or gift that can fix it. To make things a bit easier during the hectic holidays, The Huffington Post Canada Travel has round up a few gift ideas for the traveller always on the move.
