Affiliate links used, incredibly thankful for your support!

50+ Gift Ideas For The Travel Lovers, Jetsetters, Globetrotters, and Wanderlusts in your life...

Given that Vinay and I love to travel the world (do you need more proof than this ;)) it is only natural, and apt that I write a blog post talking exclusively about gifts that travel lovers like ourselves will absolutely fall in love with.

Most of these are all items that we use, abuse, and can’t live without while traveling (that goes to say a lot, amirite?), or are on our wishlist (Santa baby are you listening?).

Trust me, the travel addicts in your life will always think of and thank you each time they use your gifts on all their amazing travels, and you indirectly become a part of their adventures around the world.

So let’s get right to it, ain’t nobody got time to chit-chat or for long stories especially when you have to pick out gifts for those 5376425 people on your list ;)

Now if you want to wrap up a flight ticket to Europe or another exotic location then it’s a whole other story :p

PACKING ESSENTIALS
  • Backpack - We have been using this one for years and it is one of the best travel backpacks out there! It is sturdy, has great back padding, and the mesh straps allow good air flow. This also comes with many small and large pockets to help keep everything more organized. A MUST! Or a cute one.
  • Laptop Bag - A lightweight backpack with a USB port. 
  • Luggage - A great set not only makes a style statement but also makes it easy to keep track of your luggage. With USB port
  • Tote Bag - Especially with rollies, is a godsend. 
  • Toiletries Bag - A hanging toiletries bag makes life oh-so-easy while traveling. It is great to keep your travel essentials and cosmetics well organized. More options here and here. Great gift for both men and women. 
  • Lingerie Bag - I love organizers like this one or go with a simpler option or this
  • Packing Cubes - Love this, this and this
  • Laundry Bag - A more stylish version.
  • Luggage Tags - Two pack, cute option, personalized option
  • Hanging Luggage scale - This is a best seller for a reason ;)
  • iPhone Wallet Case - This or this based on how many cards/cash you carry. 
  • Passport Holder - With a map like this one or in a cute color or a Kate Spade version.  
  • Waterproof Dry Bag Set
  • Jewelry Roll - Given I carry a ton of jewelry when I travel the last thing I want is for them to all be tangled. I also love this option. 
  • Rollerball Perfume or a Travel Size Perfume or a Set
  • Mini Steam Iron Box - Life savior (not for all maybe but I just can't wear anything without ironing, yes, even when traveling)! 

PHOTO & VIDEO ESSENTIALS
  • Camera - If you are an avid traveler then you probably love to travel with a good camera as well. I wouldn't complain if someone gifted me this one or even this one ;)  
  • Drone - You know, Santa, I'd be happy with this one too ;) 
  • GoPro Hero7 - for all the adrenaline junkies. 
  • Selfie Stick - Duh! 
  • Tripod - A sturdy one at that. 
  • High-Speed Memory Card - extremely important! 
  • Instax Mini - I can't rave enough about it. 
  • Phone Camera Lens Kit 
  • Camera Bag - This one is amazing for a small/mirrorless camera. We have used this for the last 3 years and no one at the airport has ever asked us if this is an extra bag that we are flying with :)
