If you’ve discovered HomeExchange already, you’re probably wondering how you can share this new way of traveling with friends and family. Luckily for you, HomeExchange now offers two gift cards: A $90 one and a $175 card (the cost of a full year of membership). As you share the magic of the holidays with your loved ones, you can share the magic of home swapping with them as well!
Do you know someone who’s always forgetting where they put something? Or maybe they travel frequently and want to know the location of their luggage in case it gets lost in-transit? Then Apple AirTags is the perfect solution and an ideal holiday gift! Users place the AirTag on or inside the item they want to track (keychain, suitcase, etc.) and it pairs with their iPhone to let them keep up with its location. Happy owners of these AirTags won’t have to worry about their suitcases getting lost while traveling back home after the holidays!
Reading is a great way to pass the time while traveling. Whether you disappear into stories on a plane, train, car, snuggled up in a comfy chair in your home exchange, or while relaxing on the beach, it’s a great vacation activity. What’s not so great? Lugging multiple books along with you and having them take up so much space in your luggage. The Kindle Paperwhite can hold more books than your average suitcase can, and is a great gift to help your loved ones pack lightly while not having to sacrifice their love of the written word.
If you know an avid traveler who loves keeping objects from their travels to remind them of their adventures, then this box is the perfect gift to help them reminisce about their trips. With the vault base, this box provides the owner with 60 different labels to help them organize maps, keychains, postcards, tickets, photos, and more from all their past trips. Without a doubt, they’ll love having a way to keep their memories organized and accessible for whenever they want to look back on the journeys they’ve taken.Travel with HomeExchange
Do you know a globetrotter who loves learning new languages, but doesn’t have the time they need to dedicate themselves to the multiple classes it takes to become fluent? If that’s the case, consider getting them a subscription to Super Duolingo, the paid ad-free counterpart to Duolingo. With a more personalized way of learning a language, your loved one will find themselves flying through each short-but-sweet lesson and speaking like a local in no time!
Do you know someone who likes learning languages, but may find themselves lost from time to time during their travels? Then the Pocketalk S Voice Translator will be a godsend for them!

The camera also allows the user to translate signs, texts, and written words as well as verbal speech.

People who love to travel are probably familiar with the standard travel-sized bottles, but what if you could pack your essentials differently? Enter Cadence Capsules, hexagonal-shaped travel receptacles perfect for storing soap, shampoo, face wash, and more. Users can “build their own system” of capsules that can be stored separately or together in a suitcase or go bag. Your loved one will enjoy having this new alternative to travel bottles when they open up their very own set of Cadence Capsules.
If your friend or family member loves showing off where their adventures have taken them, then you’ll definitely want to get them a scratch map from Luckies of London. This is a map of the world that they can hang up in their home and scratch off each country that they’ve been to, transforming that region from one color into another. It’s a great decoration piece for their home, a conversation starter, and a way for someone to show off their journeys.
Trying to sleep on long flights, train trips, and car rides is not easy and can leave travelers with neck pain. If you’re concerned about the traveler in your life getting a stiff neck or not getting enough sleep in-transit, then you should consider getting them the Trtl Travel Pillow. With a comfortable design that keeps the wearer’s neck upright and comfortable, you can help them feel like they’re traveling in luxury while getting a good rest during their travels.Discover the gift of HomeExchange
