Makes for the perfect stocking stuffer and great way to personalize their luggage. You can find cool designs on Etsy.
I have one of these, and I absolutely love it! You can add charms, names, etc. The part they’ll cherish is you considering what they like and the thoughtfulness you put behind the customization.
Since they’re always on the go, a popsocket adds an extra layer of security for their phone.
It’s ideal for those traveling via plane, bus, train, etc. A popsocket doubles as a phone stand, so they can sit back and watch their favorite shows.
With travel comes feet and ankle swelling; whether it’s from sitting down on a plane too long or walking around so much. Compression socks are a must have.
And what I like about these are the option to get them in different colors/styles.
Not only is it environment-friendly to use a water bottle, it can also save money when traveling. That way they don’t have to keep buying plastic bottles every time they’re thirsty.
Depending on where they’re traveling to, many places have refillable stations for free or a few cents.
With this bottle, comes with a filter so you can ensure they are drinking safe and clean water. It’s also lightweight, which is super convenient.
Sometimes the best way to appreciate an experience is to reflect on how it made you feel. What activities you did. People you met. Instances that may have seemed small, but affected your life.
That’s what travel does, and being able to write about it—is not only therapeutic, but it’s memorializes the experience.
With this journal, they can doodle random thought, draw pictures, write notes, etc that helps them to cherish their experiences.
It gives travelers something to look forward to, but also visualize how many places they’ve already been to.
ooooo I’ve been here and there, but I still have so much more to explore.
Honestly, any traveler I know loves globes or maps of some sort. You can never go wrong with these kinds of gifts.
A nice pair of joggers or leggings can make any traveler happy. Especially if they’re the type that loves hiking, or being comfortable when they’re on the move.
I absolutely love my high waisted compression leggings—they fit nicely, especially for thicker women. I don’t have to worry about them slipping or the material ripping.
Adidas joggers is a universal gift for all genders because they’re comfortable and they can make them work with different styles.
I highly recommend getting one of these, especially if the person is into solo travel. Having this selfie stick and tripod will allow them to get all their insta flicks on their own.
It’s also works on camera and phones so they can use either or.
JBL is such a high-quality brand. Any product I’ve bought from them has lasted me for…. Forever (at this point, lol).
But anyway, having a portable speaker is convenient for every traveler. You can take this bad boy on a bike ride or while you’re rooming the streets. You can use it on a boat because guess what? It’s waterproof.
The size is perfect, and it has a clasp so it could be hooked on a backpack or anything, really.
Perfect for just walking around or for when the person is out all day. This backpack is anti theft, making it a considerate gift for any travel enthusiast.
You literally cannot open the backpack without using two hands.
Pretty dope, if you ask me.
The size of it is convenient, making it easy to pack a laptop, camera, notebooks, or whatever is needed for the day.
The Lip Bar is my FAVVVVVORITE make up brand! Everything is vegan and very affordable. They offer a fast face kit which has all your makeup essentials such as foundation, face quad, brows pencil, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick.
If you know a traveler who loves to wear makeup, this is a delightful gift. They won’t have to lug all their makeup around with them because it comes in a pouch that is great for taking on the go.
I swear by these shoes! They are comfortable, light, stylish, and affordable. I’ve had mine for over 3 years, take them on just about every trip. You can easily wear these hiking, for everyday use, or even if you want to go running.
Because sometimes when you’re recording videos, your hands shake. And not only that, people’s hands get tired from time to time. Having a gimbal is especially handy for those travelers who enjoy vlogging or just recording videos.
The 3-axis gimbal moves whenever the person does, and it stabilizes the video. I’ve noticed a drastic difference in the way I shoot my videos now that I have this.
Pro tip, when the person is attempting to balance the phone on the gimbal—take off any cases.
Wallets are everyday items people use, but sadly tourist are targeted more for theft. Having an RFID wallet will block any signals that may be transmitted to gain a person credit cards information.
Plus, you can never go wrong with new wallet especially if you know the person may have wear and tear on theirs.
Or just the simple fact, they can have a wallet to use for on the go.
Having headphones that are noise canceling is a must. For the frequent travelers they’ve had to deal with babies crying on board, people wheezing and coughing, talking, and the list goes on.
But being able to just unwind and tune into some music or watch a nice show while in transit is a necessity.
When someone is traveling to distant lands, their luggage is going through it. Being tossed, thrown, and rolled around causes wear and tear. With Samsonite luggage there’s a warranty on products plus the suitcases are durable + of high quality.
I love a good physical book like the next person, but when you’re on the go physical books can be more of a hassle. A kindle is a way to keep a collection of books and read them whenever and where ever.
So… if you know a traveler that enjoys reading, a kindle is perfect.
For those who enjoy action packed travels, a GoPro is a magnificent gift. It’s small, waterproof, easy to carry around and the camera quality is has gotten increasingly better.
Lodging gift cards
If you know someone who religiously stays in Airbnb’s, a gift card would be dope. You can set whatever price ranging from $25 and up. That way you can treat them for their next vacay, even staycation.
Hotels.com offers gift cards for any amount, so if you know they love staying in hotels—this is a great option.
For those who prefer Marriott hotels, they also offer gift cards as well.
Who says you can’t travel and be comfortable? With access to different lounges worldwide, travelers have the chance to unwind and relax in a secluded area.
Many of plaza premium airports lounges have masseuses availability, areas to freshen up, Wi-Fi + charging station, restaurants and more.
If you know the person prefers a laid back environment, this gift will be perfect for them.
