GIFT GUIDE: For the Ethical Traveler, from Jen of Purse & Clutch

The Ethical Traveler’s Gift Guide

Hi there! It’s Jen from Purse & Clutch. I LOVE to travel & am always looking for an excuse to hop on a bus or plane and experience something new. There’s something so great about learning from the norms of other cultures that’s inspiring & keeps me energized. 

I like to travel as light as possible and love items with multiple used, but I always carry a book + a pen – anyone else physically unable to read without a pen in hand?? – because you never know when you’ll be stuck on your way to your next adventure for hours on end!

Despite not packing a ton, I still want to look effortlessly stylish whether I’m in New York or Northern Guatemala. I’ve found that neutral mixing with great textures and a few well-placed accessories can get you pretty far. 

Here are some fun ideas that I hope will spark some creativity ideas on what to give the traveler in your life (or what to put on your own Christmas list!)...
