Unique Gifts For Travel Lovers


Stumped about what to get the traveler in your life? Try these ideas!


When it comes time to buy a travel-loving friend a gift, it’s easy to feel stuck on what to get. Journals are great — but not all travelers are journalers, and those that are often have at least a few blank ones on hand. Here are unique takes on classic ideas for the various kinds of travelers in your life.

For the foodie: send delicious global flavors right to their doorstep. Try The World with top chefs from Argentina to Morocco and assembles gorgeous boxes filled with curated delicacies from each country. Delivered every month, each box contains descriptions for how to use the tasty and exotic flavors in your own recipes.

For the well-accessorized: customize a favorite map to make cufflinks, bracelet, or pendant. Have a special place you want to commemorate? Maybe the place of a first date, or a favorite childhood destination? This can be a beautiful and deeply personal way to show your traveler that you know what matters to them most.

For the artsy commemorator: check out this unique way to remind them of their favorite places and wonderful travel memories with a personalized print that can be framed and hung on the wall. You can add up to 16 of your traveler’s favorite places and add some tailored text to make it a completely unique gift. This is a great way to keep your traveler inspired.

For the traveler who has everything and wants to give back: Why not make a donation to a favorite cause in your traveler’s name? You can choose organizations that support environmental stewardship, advocate for people in crisis, promote education, or help bring beauty.

For the traveler who’s always up for adventure: I’ve written before about how experiences pack the biggest punch, happiness-wise. At Experience Days you can give the gift of a lifelong great memory to someone you care about. Try everything from hang gliding to art lessons throughout the United States, the UK and South Africa. What a great surprise for honeymooners or a friend’s next big adventure!

For the gadget-junkie: this funky, color-coded 4-in-1 adapter is perfect for the tech-savvy traveling family and will help ensure everything stays running smoothly. For the hardcore gadget-junkie, what about these stylish vests, hoodies, and jackets with interior pockets (for men and women) to hold everything from smartphones to keys to water bottles?

For the photographer: If your friend is never without their smartphone or camera, why not make it easy for them to create beautiful, lasting photo albums, calendars, or prints of their best shots? At Artifact Uprising they can connect directly with their Instagram account and assemble their most gorgeous memories.

If you need help planning the next adventure to fill an album, put a picture on the wall, or wear around your neck — contact me today! Let’s get started!
