Last year, we wrote a blog titled “9 Gift Ideas for the Travel Lover on Your List,” which helped many people find the perfect gift for an adventurous friend or family member. This year, we thought we’d expand the list with nine more great gift ideas.


Books and movies are a good way to pass the time during a long flight or road trip, but something most travelers never regret having is a journal. A journal is a great way to remember the sights, sounds, and smells of each place you visit – plus, it keeps you busy when you need something to do.

Pillow/Eye Mask

Whether it’s on a plane, on a train, or in a car, frequent travelers could always use a bit of sleep. Keep them comfortable with a travel pillow and an eye mask that they can take anywhere they go.

Portable Hot Spot

While wi-fi is getting more and more popular, there are still plenty of places around the world that don’t offer it. With a portable hot spot, however, you can provide a wi-fi connection for your gadgets and for others around you. Plus, it’s nice and small, making it easy to fit in any bag or suitcase.

GoPro Camera

If your travel lover is one who yearns for adventure, help them document their skiing, zip-lining, bike riding, surfing, parasailing, or any other fun-filled experience with a GoPro camera. It’s durable, waterproof, and great for capturing first-person action.

Packing Cubes

With a fully packed suitcase, it can be hard to remember where you put everything. Packing cubes come in several sizes and let you pack with organization. Plus, they’re durable and fit perfectly in dresser drawers to you don’t have to live out of a suitcase.

Outlet Adapter

Electrical outlets come in many different shapes and sizes, and what fits in an outlet in the U.S. may not fit in an outlet in Germany or Russia. Solve that problem by getting your friend or family member an outlet adapter and they won’t have to find an alternate way to charge their belongings in a different country.

Puzzle Books

Puzzle books can not only sharpen your mind, but they can also give you something to do while you’re on the road or in the air. Try a book of crosswords, Sudokus, word searchers, or a variety of games.

French Press

If your frequent traveler loves coffee, a travel-sized French press is a must-have. It allows you to make coffee anywhere you have access to water, so you never have to be without a daily cup of joe.

Luggage Accessories

If luggage is a little out of your price range, luggage accessories are always a great gift. Look for personalized luggage tags, grip handles, or luggage locks to make the travel experience smoother.
