Holiday Gift Guide for the Traveler



Last year I did a Holiday Gift Guide for the Photographer with some of my favorite products (including a camera lens coffee thermos!), so I thought I would do a holiday gift guide for the traveler this year! πŸ™‚

Holiday Gift Guide for the Traveler

I have done a post on 10 Essential Travel AccessoriesΒ with some handy travel products like packing cubes (huge packing lifesaver), an inflatable neck pillow, and my favorite jacket to prevent pickpocketing, but I thought I would do some fun gifts for holiday shopping. Whether you know a full time traveler or someone who dreams of traveling the world, there’s a gift for everyone! πŸ™‚

Travel Essentials & Clothing

Airbnb Gift Card

Airbnb gift card

I just started using Airbnb this year, and I’ve really enjoyed all the places I stayed! An Airbnb gift card would be great for someone traveling the world or even just visiting family for the holidays.

Fujifilm Waterproof Digital Camera

This camera is great for someone who’s planning a trip to a tropical location or a scuba diving friend.

Travel Passport Wallet

It’s a passport holder AND a wallet so you can keep all your valuables in one spot! It also comes in lots of different colors.Β 

Leather Passport Cover

This classy passport cover has a beautiful engraving of the world map on it.

Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffel Bag

I know a lot of people who love their Herschel backpacks, and they also make great duffel bags.Β 

Brouk & Co. Travel Cord Roll

I was surprised that the product that everyone wanted most on my What’s in My Backpack? post was a travel cord roll! It really is great for keeping all your chargers organized and untangled.

Travel Scarf with Hidden Pocket

I have a jacket with hidden pockets that I love, and I think it’s really cool that there’s a scarf that does the same thing!Β 

Samuel Hubbard Shoes

Samuel Hubbard shoes are made for travelers because they’re so comfortable. I have a pair, and I love them! They’re always adding new shoe styles for men and women, and you can see more options on their website.

Fjallraven Classic Kanken Backpack

It wouldn’t be a gift guide post without my blog’s namesake πŸ˜‰ I’ve written in many posts about how much I love my Fjallraven backpack, and they’re great for traveling! They can be pretty compact to pack them in suitcases, and they hold a surprising amount.

Travel Decor & More

Globe Whiskey Decanter

This one is on my wishlist! It’s such a unique gift, and I love that there’s a ship inside.

Online Photography Course

Shameless plug time πŸ˜‰ I have an online photography course about understanding your DSLR for anyone who wants to improve their travel (or other) photography! And the price is reduced from $49 to $29 through December 22, so take advantage of it soon!

Scratch Off World Map Travel Poster

I love this poster to show everywhere that you’ve traveled!

Try the World Gifts

Try the World

I’ve gotten a few Try the World products and I love them! You can get a subscription where they’ll mail you a box with food or snacks from a different country every month. It’s great for someone who has adventurous tastes.

Map Coasters

These coasters would look awesome in any home, and there are tons of different city maps to choose from!

Travel Photographs
