Finding the best gift ideas for travel lovers isn’t that difficult as you might think. Practical items or anything wanderlust-themed will make any traveler happy, but if you’re still stressed out about it, I’m here to help. Check out this travel-related gifts roundup that will surely give you some inspiration.
FUN GIFT IDEAS FOR TRAVEL LOVERS
SCRATCH OFF MAP
Scratch-off maps have become such a beloved item that they have to be included in any travel gift roundup. All travelers would love to get one, and there are plenty of styles and colors you can choose from. Browse all maps here.
For those who love to document their trips, this is the perfect gift. You can find some amazing designs on Etsy, including personalized journals that will win over any traveler. Find the perfect travel journal here.
TRAVEL-THEMED SUBSCRIPTION BOX
From travel-inspired fiction books box (The Wordy Traveler) to artisan items from around the world (Vacation Crate), there are some pretty cool gift boxes for travel lovers (at least on paper they seem cool). Luckily, you can gift one single box, so you don’t need to commit to a long-term subscription, but be sure to read reviews to see if it’s actually worth it.
FICTION BOOKS FULL OF WANDERLUST
If you’re looking for a travel gift for a bookworm, this is the one. I was personally inspired by ‘The Return’ to travel to southern Spain and by ‘The Island’ to travel to Crete and Spinalonga island, and there are so many incredible books out there that make you want to hop on a plane. Find the perfect book and read reviews here.
WANDERLUST INSPIRED WALL ART
From travel quote prints to map posters to travel photography, themed wall art is another fun way for travel lovers to show off their passion. Check out the beautiful wall art you can find on Etsy.
It might be a bit too literal for some people, but if your loved ones like this kind of decor items, a mini globe could certainly be the gift for them. Compare all prices here.
TRAVEL INSPIRED COFFEE MUG
As a total coffee snob and travel addict, I can understand one’s need in a themed mug. I personally love those illustrated enamel camping mugs (though I’m not a camper at all), but there are dozens of fun designs out there for both men and women. Browse all of them here.
TRAVEL INSPIRED T-SHIRT
Sometimes there’s nothing like a t-shirt and jeans, and I’m loving the designs you can find on Etsy. Both women and men can wear them, and they’re an excellent option for a relatively budget-friendly gift. Find your favorite t-shirt here.
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE OR WORKSHOP
This is a unique gift for travelers who want to master their photography skills. If you’re looking for face-to-face training, search for travel photography workshops in a particular city or town.
For online classes, I love Skillshare. They have a variety of courses for all levels, and you can purchase their gift card. You can also search for online workshops by specific photographers (that usually have their own website).
As a 90’s kid, I’ll always love photo albums. Every once in a while, you just have to reminisce with your loved ones while sipping some hot chocolate and looking at pictures that make you miss your childhood or a memorable past trip. These albums are a classic gift that any travel lover would love to get. Browse all prices here.
USEFUL TRAVEL GIFTS
EATWITH GIFT CARD
Eatwith is a community for authentic food experiences with locals all over the world. You can purchase a gift card, which is valid for a year and can be used in more than 130 countries. This is an amazing gift for foodies or travelers that love to meet locals. Buy a gift card here.
GET YOUR GUIDE GIFT CARD
I love using Get Your Guide for booking experiences. This website offers such a large variety of tickets and tours, and any traveler would love to have some money to spend there. Their card is valid up to 18 months from the date of purchase, and you don’t need to choose a specific tour. Purchase your gift guide here!
BOOKING GIFT CARD
My go-to website for booking accommodation. The downside is that as for now, you can only purchase a gift card online if you’re from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and the UK.
I know it’s a huge investment, and you should only buy it for your favorite person in the entire world, but it’s honestly the ultimate gift (apart from a plane ticket). I personally use this camera, which is a good choice for beginner to intermediate level photographers. Sounds obvious, but it’s definitely preferable to know what type of camera a person wants to get before making such a purchase.
PHONE LENS KIT
For travelers who don’t want to invest in a camera yet but still want to take beautiful pictures, a phone lens kit could be the ideal gift. Different kits are suitable for different phone types, so be sure to read all the little details. You can compare prices and read reviews here.
PASSPORT COVER AND LUGGAGE TAG SET
Who wouldn’t love matching wanderlust-themed passport cover and luggage tag? I love Etsy for finding this kind of items, and there are tons of adorable designs for both men and women. Browse all of them here.
WATERPROOF AND ANTI-THEFT BACKPACK
TRAVEL DOCUMENTS ORGANIZER
Keeping things like your passport, boarding pass, and credit cards organized in one place is essential for traveling stress-free. Know someone who needs a document organizer? Compare prices and purchase one here!
Another must-have item for travelers who want to stay organized is packing cubes. With several sizes suitable for different items (including shoes and cosmetics), one set is more than enough to make one’s traveling life easier. Compare all packing cubes sets here.
HANGING TOILETRY BAG
A hanging toiletry bag is super useful not just for packing better but for staying organized while on the trip itself. If you know anyone who desperately needs this bag but has yet to buy one, this could be a great practical travel gift option. Browse all items here.
TRAVEL TECH CASE
No one likes the mess of a million cables, chargers, and devices scattered in their backpack, so an electronic organizer is super useful for those who travel with a lot of tech items. Compare prices here.
SLEEPING TRAVEL KIT
Looking for gifts for people who travel a lot between states or continents? Long-haul flights (and even short ones) can be a nightmare if you’re unprepared, so a sleeping kit is essential. The basic kits usually include a neck pillow, a sleeping mask, and earplugs, and others also have a blanket or a scented sachet. Find the perfect one here.
TRAVEL BLANKET FOR FLIGHTS
TRAVEL GUIDE BOOKS AND BUCKET LIST BOOKS
I know travel books are a lot less popular these days (and as a travel blogger, I’m grateful for people looking for information on my own website), but they still make a great gift. If your loved ones are obsessed with a particular country (like I’m obsessed with Spain), a travel guide book could be an amazing gift. Browse all books here.
Tripods have become a go-to item for solo travelers who want to take beautiful photos while traveling alone. I admit that I haven’t bought one for myself yet because I’m not so keen on having my camera away from me, but it’s on my radar, and I’m in search of the best travel tripods.
I’ve heard great things about several tripod types, but recommendations are not always enough because you need to consider a few things before choosing which one to buy. From the tripod’s weight and height to the camera’s weight and size, you need to carefully examine which tripod is sturdy enough and convenient to use. Read reviews and compare prices to find the best tripod here.
FLEXIBLE PHONE AND TABLET HOLDER FOR FLIGHTS
TRAVEL COFFEE MUG
PORTABLE ESPRESSO MAKER
Being able to make yourself a cup of coffee literally anywhere is priceless. If you’re looking for gifts for travel lovers who are also coffee snobs, this is a creative and practical idea. Read reviews and compare prices here.
TRAVEL GIFT IDEAS FOR HER
TRAVEL INSPIRED JEWELRY
Such a classic and always fun to get, wanderlust-inspired jewelry is the way to a female traveler’s heart. I’ve treated myself with this cute world map necklace that I absolutely LOVE, but there are countless other beautiful designs to choose from. Browse all prices here!
Having all this jewelry is great, but carrying it while traveling can be quite annoying. That’s why nothing is more practical for a female traveler who loves her accessories than a jewelry travel case. Compare all designs and prices here.
ANTI-THEFT INFINITY SCARF
For safety reasons, in certain cities I had visited like Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires, I preferred walking around without carrying any bag. Hidden pockets are a practical way to keep your things safe, so an anti-theft scarf that has a secret pocket is a fantastic item to pack. Compare prices here.
WANDERLUST INSPIRED PHONE CASE
Having a themed phone case is a fun way to flaunt one’s traveling obsession. Check out all the cute designs and compare prices here.
TRAVEL THEMED PILLOW
They might seem simple, but themed decorative pillows are a fabulous travel gift for women. They’re a fun little addition to any bedroom or living room, and you can find plenty of designs on Etsy.

You have to admit that this is a pretty unique gift. I know it’s not exactly travel-themed, but it’s practical and I expect bearded travelers to love it. Compare all kits here.
Who doesn’t love to get their own customized gift? Even the small addition of a person’s initials is enough to give that extra touch and make a difference. Browse the latest designs and prices here.
