It’s the most wonderful time of the year… The holidays will be here before you know it, so it’s time to start (or finish) your holiday shopping! You won’t have to wait long for the smell of pine needles, the taste of eggnog and sugar cookies and much-needed quality time with your loved ones. But, as wonderful as the holidays are, all the merriment can be tough on your wallet. With this in mind, I’ve curated a great list of affordable wanderlusty holiday gift ideas that won’t break the bank! These gifts start around $5 and don’t exceed $50. Hopefully this list will help you find something special for each and every traveler, adventurer and wanderluster on your holiday shopping list. (And don’t worry, I certainly won’t judge if you purchase a little something-something for yourself too.  With the prices as reasonable as these, how can you resist?)  🙂
