Hopefully you are checking things off your list and enjoying the season. This holiday gift guide features all things travel, with the hope you will find a unique gift or two for your loved ones.
Gift Ideas for People Who Love Travel
Gifts for the Home
This coffee table book from National Geographic is a photographic tour of the world and I’m sure it would inspire ideas for many vacations. Not only are the pictures beautiful, the book also provides when to go, where to eat, where to stay, and what to do, to ensure the most enriching and authentic experience.
This mug can be customized to have the silhouette of your favorite state (or country) with a heart in the middle. There’s ceramic for mornings at home or stainless steel for those days on the go.
JCrew Metallic Moccasins
Let’s be honest, when I’m at home, I’m usually
in my pajamas hard at work. These faux shearling lined moccasins would be perfect house slippers and would dress up any outfit.
Bronze Custom Map Key Ring
This key ring can be personalized with the location of your choice. A special gift to preserve someone’s favorite travel memory.
Minted Gold Foil Artwork
Minted has this beautiful collection of gold foil artwork. You can choose the monument, state, or map and they create it and ship it to you. A beautiful addition to any home.
Every two months Try the World ships a product box from a different company filled with gourmet food from around the world. In addition there are recipe cards, playlists, and information about the country. Sign me up!

Not only will this wallet hold your cash, credit cards, and passport, it will prevent would be thieves from accessing your personal information with its RFID blocking material. Perfect for a traveler on the go!
I hate to admit it, but I am always losing things. Keys, wallet, kids, you name it. With this Tile Phone Finder you attach it to an item and if it gets lost, this Bluetooth enabled tracker and its app will locate the item in no time.
Buddha Pendant from Rustic Souls
I honestly love all the jewelry from Rustic Souls, but I really love this buddha pendant. Perfect with any outfit and a thoughtful gift for the traveler in your life.
Belkin Tassel USB Port
How many times have you searched high and low for a charger? For me, it’s too many times to count. If I had a Belkin Tassel USB, the power to recharge my device would always be at my fingertips. No cords to get tangled and it’s nicely hidden behind the tassels.
Can you say practical? A can opener, bottle opener, corkscrew, scissors, you name it. It’s all here and it fits in your pocket. Just remember to pack it in your checked bag, you don’t want to lose it to security.
The photographs on these notebooks capture the beautiful colors of Paris. Perfect for taking on the road, keeping notes, or using as a journal.
Oh the Places You’ll Go Luggage Tag
I love this luggage tag I found on Etsy, but if this isn’t your favorite travel quote, find another, they have several to choose from.
Ricardo Beverly Hills Roxbury Carry On
I have one of these bags, and it is my favorite one to bring on trips. It has dual spinner wheels, making it easy to push or pull along.
Not only are these gorgeous to look at, they keep the noise out! There are so many times I wish I had these when we traveled.
This beautiful cashmere wrap is perfect for long plane rides or a day in the city. Large and comfortable, I imagine once I put it on, I would never take it off.
Mobile Foodie Survival Kit
It is becoming more common to stay in other people’s apartments and homes when traveling. When you are living as a local, there are many times you cook your own meals. Having a travel spice kit will make everything taste better.
Tocca travel fragrances
It seems I alway leave my perfume at home because it’s either too large for travel or I’m worried it will spill. These Tocca roll on fragrances are small enough to throw in your purse and the gift set makes the perfect stocking stuffer.
Drybar “Escape Plan” Travel Set
This travel kit is person for those of us that have our hair straightened and want it to last when we travel. The kit comes with a shine cream, a de-tangler travel size brush, and dry shampoo. I live for dry shampoo when I travel because there are many places it takes way too long to blow dry my hair.
