$10. Even if no on at work is traveling anywhere soon, it's always a good idea to know cuss words across several languages. We like the idea of keeping one cuss card out each day to memorize and then hone pronunciation by yelling it at the printer or mumbling it when the subway train is late or traffic is insane.
$20-22. When traveling, it's always a good idea to keep your nationality to yourself. Just in case. Plus, having a passport holder is something kinda cosmopolitan in itself. These two options from Flight 001 are unique because the company makes them themselves. We have to confess that some of our own tags were used in the making of the cover on the right up there.
$16. Who carries fold-out maps anymore? That's right, old people and tour groups. Hopefully most have migrated to downloading maps and apps to replace them, but we still love the idea of keeping a backup around for fun pointing-and-plotting sessions at restaurant and in train compartments. This 100% waterproof soft map crumples into a pouch and fold out in 2 seconds. You can stuff it in your pocket without rips and tears, too.
$20-75. For those with more generous Secret Santa budget, we suggest taking it a step further with artwork. The options range from awesome neighborhood posts of cities like SF, Manhattan, Brooklyn, LA, DC, Columbus and Chicago to striking world maps, an "adventure calendar," and maps of the USA and Europe that just scream travel inspiration.
