A gift can be the prelude to adventure, or could accompany an adventure or a truly womderful gift could even inspire an adventure.
For instance, buying someone close to you a Canon Rebel T3i could prove to be just the trigger they need to throw in their tedious day job and set off for European or Asian shores to take pictures worthy of such an impressive piece of photographic kit.
In a similar vein, splurging on a smartphone such as an iPhone 4S or Blackberry, with all the computing power and communications and media options that it would open up to someone living on the move, maybe out of a rucksack, could also prompt the onset of an adventure of a lifetime. Just make sure omeone buys them a secure lock for their rucksack too. Or maybe a well-chosen gift could give the recipient a world of adventure.
Maybe if the recipient is too elderly, or well-ensconced in their career to be persuaded to chuck it all up in the air, a gift like a Kindle e-reader could put an almost unlimited world of adventure into their lap or their favorite armchair.
As far as adventurous gift-giving goes, the sky´s the limit!...
