The best gifts for travel lovers
No matter if it’s your friend’s very first trip abroad or 10th plane ride to somewhere exotic, a book of 1,000 things to do and see is sure to entice them. Especially if they have a heart for seeking adventures and unique experiences, this is one of the best gifts for travel lovers. The book is roughly 500 pages and the bucket list is categorized by longitude (interesting!), including both well-known sights and localized activities.
Anyone who has spent time traveling knows their suitcase quickly fills with brochures, maps, and ticket stubs – usually with a plan to make a scrapbook, but often ending up in the trash can. This travel diary is the perfect gift for someone who loves to travel but who may not be good at staying organized. Protective sleeves preserve photos, postcards, and other memorabilia, while margins leave room for notes and favorite local sayings. At the end of her trip, she’ll be happy to show off her neatly kept memories.
For the smart (or wanna-be-smart) packer, a travel backpack is JUST the thing they need. If you’re looking for gifts for people who love to travel without the inconvenience of heavy luggage and baggage fees, this 45L carry-on size backpack will do the trick. It wears like a backpack but opens like a suitcase and includes laptop and zipper compartments. Plus it’s durable and flexible so you’ll be amazed by how much can fit inside!
4. GoPro Hero 8
Who doesn’t want a GoPro these days? So when thinking of gifts for travel lovers, who have the chance to take some amazing shots around the world, a GoPro is a clear choice. If your friend is entering the travel blogging/vlogging world, they will need a superior camera to compete with the rest. With wide views and smooth views, the Hero 8 has many features for filming and live-streaming – seriously, you’ll need to click the link cuz it’s too long for us to list!
For a more unique gift idea for a travel lover, try these noise canceling headphones. Your friends will not know they need them, but they absolutely do. Whether they need to take work calls while on the road or need to fall asleep in noisy planes and cities, they will want to take these headphones everywhere they go. Perks include quick charging, 30 hour battery life, endless comfort, premium quality, and easily adjustable volume.
A way to show off the world’s beauty while showing off your beautiful travels! This is a creative and artsy gift for someone who loves to travel. Your friend will be able to scratch off her completed destinations to reveal a watercolor design, while searching the map for her next journey. It comes with a scratching tool and memory stickers, and it’s large size and vibrant colors make it an excellent wall decoration.
For a more practical gift for people who love to travel, pick something to help them as they go. AirBnB is a heavily used source for stays around the world, so a gift card can come in handy at any time. Even if your friend is typically a hostel-staying traveler, having a night with a private bed and bathroom in an AirBnB rental may be just the treat they need.
