The Best Gifts for Travelers in 2019

Purchasing gifts can get quite stressful. You want the person to love it and make use of what you give to them, but sometimes you can’t afford to break the bank either. As someone who travels often, I absolutely love receiving travel related items as presents. So, I can almost guarantee that a fellow traveler will appreciate these items listed below.

1. Passport Cover

We hold our passports near and dear to our heart. A cover is handy to have to protect your passport from spills or stains. I also love being able to store my boarding pass in it. Get a nice, stylish one for cute airport photos to post on social media!
Cost: $10-$20

2. Travel Inspired Home Décor

My home is filled with décor that inspires me to continue traveling. It also shows my visitors just how much I love to wander the world. There’s a variety of décor to choose from, such as photo albums, globes, pillows, and more.

Cost: Varies

Where to purchase: Homegoods, Target, Wayfair

3. Luggage Scale

What’s more annoying than getting to the check-in counter only to find out that your luggage is over the allowed weight? You’re standing there taking out items one by one to avoid additional fees. This can be prevented by having a luggage scale! This lightweight scale is easy to carry with you on trips as well. This is essential for those who love to shop at the destination and send those items away in your check in luggage.

Cost: $15

5. Anti-Theft Bag

There is always a fear of theft while traveling. We hear numerous stories of pick pocketers and are always told to beware of our surroundings. This anti-theft bag will allow a little more relief and relaxation as it’s more difficult to break into. The backpack I purchased cannot be cut with a knife and provides multiple zippered pockets for more security. My favorite aspect to this bag is the back compartment that lays right against your back. I put my valuables in here since I know no one can reach into this section while I’m wearing the backpack.

Cost: $37

6. Books

Books are great gifts because there’s so many options to choose from. I love purchasing books about certain destinations and their history. If I want to take a break from sleeping or watching a movie on a plane, reading a book is the perfect substitution.

Cost: Varies

Where to purchase: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Thrift Stores

A book is the ultimate travel companion

7. Travel Organizer

Although not all travelers prefer having a clear, organized plan set forth for their next trip, some (like myself) absolutely love it. A travel organizer is a wonderful gift to give to those who enjoy writing down all their plans and goals. It’s a perfect way to jot down bucket list items and keep track of new travel ideas.

8. Noise Cancelling Headphones

Sleep is so essential to a happy lifestyle. That includes while you’re on a trip somewhere. You don’t want to ruin your vacation due to the lack of sleep. These headphones will be so helpful on a plane with a crying baby or chattering friends. It’s also ideal for nights in a hostel especially for light sleepers.

Cost: $80
