You know the type. They post photos on Facebook of themselves in far-off places. They’re standing on the top of a mountain or at some exotic, end-of the-world locale. They travel the world, and whether they reach those places for business or pleasure, there are guaranteed ways to keep any jet-setter happy come Christmas. Ready to check off another person on your Christmas list? Here are 10 great gift ideas for that very person.

1. Travel Apps

Splurge on one they would normally bypass for a free app, a USA Today report recommends. The iTunes store makes gifting apps easy — simply select “Gift this App” in the drop-down menu next to the app’s price. For Android phones, the easiest option is to purchase an Amazon-branded gift card good for app purchases.

Trip Lingo: The app itself is free, but the language-pack add-ons, which teach thousands of phrases and sentences in 12 different languages, cost extra — between $9.99 and $49.99. Rather than learn the grammar basics, you can use the app’s audio feature, which speaks the basics and has you copy and repeat.

FlightTrack 5: Available for $4.99, this will put any worrying traveler’s mind at ease. It lets them keep an eye on flight statuses, terminals, and gate numbers and can also predict flight delays based on airport warnings.

iExit: This is great for travelers who opt for cars rather than planes. For a mere $0.99, this app displays services at upcoming interstate exits, locates nearby toilet stops, pet-frendly hotels, and campgrounds.
