5 Great Gift Ideas for Friends Who Travel

Buying the right gift for someone is an art in itself. Trying to find something that is in line with their personalities, useful and affordable at the same time takes a lot of effort. However, if you know the person’s interests and likes/dislikes, it gives you a good head start in the gifting experience.

So, if you are the gifter and the giftee is your travel enthusiast buddy this task is not going to be too hard. All travelers, whether they are new or seasoned need a lot of important things to make the travel experience a smooth and enjoyable one. Let’s take a look at some cool ideas that will qualify as appropriate gifts for travelers –


It goes without saying that travelers need a lot of different types of luggage. A good back pack, carry-on bag with wheels, large suitcase and even a pouch can go a long way.

The Everlane Twill Weekender is a trendy duffel that is just the right size. It can be used by itself for a short trip or as a airplane carry-on for longer trips. It comes with easy-to-access pockets for your essentials and fits perfectly in any overhead storage compartment.

Then there is the Folding Travel bag by Outdoorzone. It folds up nice and compact and can be stored away when not needed. It comes in handy when you end up shopping more than your luggage can hold!

Travel Journal

Many seasoned travelers like to maintain a record of their experiences. They later use it to write blogs, reviews etc. The ‘I Was Here’ travel journal is a fun and useful gift for your traveler buddy. Full of quirky illustrations and challenges, it is definitely one of a kind. Or, for your digital friends, a selfie-stick.

Accessories and Gadgets

When visiting another part of the world, travelers need to make sure they have the accessories needed to effectively use their gadgets over there. For your friend planning to visit a new country, a country specific phone charger/adapter will be a highly appreciated gift.

If you aren’t going to invest in expensive foldable shoes such as Teiks, we get it, but you still need some comfy footwear for your trip. If you haven’t heard of “foldable ballet shoes” in general, you are missing out! brands like ‘Side Kicks’ and others will save your trip. Have you walked a mile in Las Vegas wearing heels from the casino to your room and back? Then you know they are one of the best travel gifts you can get (even for yourself)

Water Bottle Purifier

Yes, even in the US, we spend a great deal of vacation dollars on bottled water. I recently purchased a bottle of water in the Ft. Myers airport for $6.00- that’s skyway robbery. lol. And it’s true, with a filtered bottle water you’ll save a bundle and feel great by staying hydrated. It’s a gift that you may not think to buy for a friend, although it will be much appreciated!
