Have you ever tried to find the best gift for the traveller friend or family member in your life? Or perhaps you want to celebrate your most recent trip with a little something special for yourself? Or…if we’re being honest, a little treat for yourself just because? (I’m so guilty of this! I prefer to think of it as supporting the global economy…).
I’ve gathered my favorite gifts for travellers that I have either purchased for myself or given to a friend. I hope you love them as much as I do.
- Travel Tree Starter Kit by TobrisMyTravelsTree
This is one of my favourite items! I have one on my end table in my living room. Each Travel Tree comes with three signs of cities/countries. Keep track of all the places you’ve travelled with this neat souvenir! You can add more travel signs as you pursue your travels. I’m excited to add a Bolivia sign to my tree come October 2017.
- Travel Journals by FreeRangeBookbinding
No adventure is complete without something to record it. I am a travel journal addict and own far too many of them because I just can’t resist a beautiful or unique journal. These 100% handmade, custom travel journals include space for photos and writing, plus pockets and envelopes for extra mementos (because I don’t have the heart to throw out any kind of stub), to fully document your amazing adventure. You can even customize the map or add a travel quote to really make it your own. If you’re a travel journal addict like me or want to start one for the first time, check out my posts on 45 Prompts to Help You Write a Fantastic Travel Journal and Top 7 Beautiful Travel Journals that You Need For Your Next Trip.
- Christmas Ornaments by WCDShoppe
I started a tradition for myself where I purchase a Christmas tree ornament with the outline of the country I’ve visited that year. It’s a great conversation starter and adds a little something special to your Christmas tree. Plus, it helps relive all my travel memories because I always start thinking of something funny or special that happened during a trip when I put the ornament on the tree.
- Wooden Block Quotes by DaisyThirteen
- Globe Necklace by SilverMooseArts
Because everyone needs a little bling! Like the jewellery creator says “with the earth around your neck, home is always close to your heart”. I purchased this item a few years ago and it always starts my day off right when I put it on.
- Personalized Airport Departure Board Wall Art by Kiacoltd
This wall art looks like an airport departures board which can be personalized to your requirements. Choose your favourite places, holiday destinations, names, cities you dream of visiting or just about anything of meaning to you. Why not add dates as well to resemble the flight numbers?
- Secret Pocket Scarf by 4theloveofoils
First of all, it’s warm and cozy for when the AC gets cranked on the plane. Second, it has a fun secret pocket that can carry your ID, credit cards, cash, passport, lip gloss or other things you want to keep close at hand. There are lots of different styles to choose from.
- Leather Passport Holder by PortlandLeather
Who wouldn’t want to keep their passport in something as beautiful as this? Bonus! You can choose over 100 designs to put on the front. I chose one of my favourite travel quotes for mine. Interested in inspiring travel quotes? Check out my Top 17 travel quotes that keep me inspired!
- Travel Themed Recipe Cards by ViolinEvents
I sign up for a cooking class in every country I visit in order to learn how to make classic and local dishes (Read why you should too!). I always have a stack of these on hand to transcribe my recipes onto something special but accessible as the recipe is often buried somewhere in my travel journal.
- Ticket Shadow Box by HipLittleSquares
I don’t know about you but I keep all kinds of travelling ticket stubs, museum admissions, etc. After lugging them half way around the world, I’m at a loss as to what to do with them and yet I don’t have the heart to throw them away. And then I found this beautiful piece where you can store your tickets in a pretty fashion.
- Pre-made Travel Scrapbook by CreationsKMP
I think scrapbooks are lots of fun and I’m in awe of those talented people who create them since I’m talentless in this area. Then I discovered this pre-made travel scrapbook that makes everyone seem like an expert scrapbooker (and a nifty way to display your adventure)!
