7 Great Holiday Gift Ideas for Travelers in 2018

What do you buy for that one friend whose Christmas list consists of plane tickets to Peru and a handmade necklace from a local who lives there? We’ve got you covered. These wanderlust-worthy gift ideas are perfect for anyone who can’t stop dreaming about their next trip.


Travel Map

Whether you get them a scratch-off map that’s easy to store in their suitcase or a sturdier corkboard that keeps them dreaming at home, travelers love maps. There are never enough ways to track, plan and dream about traveling!


New Luggage

Even though luggage is one of those vital pieces of gear, travelers would much rather spend the extra money on a plane ticket. Treat them with something to keep their possessions safe while they’re exploring the world.


Outlet Adapter

This handy little accessory is really important if you’re traveling for work. Luckily, it also makes a great stocking stuffer! Extra points if you can find one that adapts to various outlets in different countries.


Travel Guidebook

What better gift for a traveler than a reason to plan your next trip? Pick an out-of-the-box location to inspire them to visit somewhere new or get them an unusual guide to a place you know they love. There’s never such thing as too many recommendations!


Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Any well-traveled person will tell you: those airline-provided earbuds just don’t cut it when you’re trying to block out sound. A nice, comfortable set of headphones or earbuds makes a world of difference when you’re spending 12 hours on a flight.



Speaking of 12-hour flights, what do you do with that much time in one seat? An e-reader will help fill that gap. In addition to cutting down on the bulk of books in your bag, it also provides something to do besides watch that romantic comedy on the tiny in-flight television.


A Weekend Trip

If you’re able to splurge for a full trip, surprising them with a weekend getaway is a failproof Christmas gift option. Book them a flight or give them an airline gift card — you’ll score major points by feeding their wanderlust!
