When sending a gift, make sure to add a personalized note card: If possible, in your own stationery. Ensure that your message explains your thought process behind the gift, ie; I know that you love to travel and this came to mind! Your handwritten card makes for a memorable gesture and you will be remembered as a thoughtful gift giver.
