Y’all. Gift giving is one of my most favorite things. I get so excited when choosing unique gift ideas for each person. Now that we’ve been traveling a good bit, I wanted to offer some direction for others when picking for gifts for travel lovers.

Most gift ideas on this list will be for both men and women. They’ll be practical items that your traveler will use. Not just gimmicks and useless gadgets. Everything on this list will be make a great travel gift.

From carry on luggage, to travel gift cards, to travel themed gifts for the home, you’ll be someone’s favorite person after purchasing one of these best gifts for travelers.

Again, if you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, last minute gift ideas, or even the perfect teacher gift idea (for your teacher who loves to travel), look no further! We have your one stop shop right here!

(The following travel related gifts are in no particular order.)

My all-time favorite gift to give for either my traveler friends or my foodie friends is a box from Universal Yums. This box of goodies can be given as a monthly subscription or as a one time gift. 

Each Universal Yums box comes with multiple snacks from a certain country. Each month, the country changes, so brand new snacks.

This is amazing gift for travelers who will appreciate the thoughtfulness and creativity behind the purchase!

Plus, it’s an experience. They get to try snacks from places all over the world! This is why it’s my number one gift recommendation for the travelers!

Carry On Luggage

One of the best gift ideas for your traveler is nice luggage. Our go-to when traveling is always a carry on.

Whether they travel stateside or you’re looking for gifts for international travelers, a nice carry on luggage is our number one recommendation.

The carry on luggage options below are all highly rated. They have great reviews, so you know you’re giving a solid product.

What better way to get someone excited about taking their next trip than with new luggage?!

Samsonite Omni Expandable Hardside

I do have this carry on piece, so I can recommend it personally. Samsonite is known to be one of the top brands of luggage. The name itself just about assures that you’re buying a good product. I’d say that this piece is the perfect gift for travelers. Click here for latest price.

Travelpro Luggage Crew 11

Bryan uses a Travelpro for work, and he works for the airlines. Like Samsonite, Travelpro is also known for good quality products. If you’re looking for a soft sided carry on, then this is one of the best quality gifts for people who travel. Click here for latest price.

AmazonBasics Underseat Luggage

I’m not going to lie, I want one of these! This would be the perfect carry on luggage for those short trips. This things fits under the airline seat! Whether you’re looking for gifts for men or gift ideas for women, this is a top pick for the traveler’s gift. Click here for latest price.

AmazonBasics Hardside Spinner

If you’re looking for a good basic carry on, this one right here will do. The reviews speak for themselves. Again, this is another option for the top gifts for travelers. Click here for latest price.

COOLIFE Luggage Expandable

Like the others, this carry on has amazing reviews. It reminds me of the Samsonite, but at a lower price. As you can probably tell, I prefer the hard case luggage. If I have to check it, for whatever reason, I like the protection of the harder shell. Click here for latest price.

Personal Travel Bag

Personal travel bags are good gifts for travelers, because so many people normally only use a purse or a regular backpack.

What makes these personal travel bags so great is the extra space, pockets, and of course, they’re all made to sit right on top of your luggage! They all slide right over the expanded handle of the suitcase.

This keeps your personal bags off your shoulders and off the floor.

Although a couple of these bags are geared more towards women, most are unisex, and would make great travel gifts for men.

If you’re searching specifically for gifts for her and you’re wanting a travel purse, check out my review of travel purses.

Women Ladies Canvas Weekender Bag 

Y’all, I like this bag so much, that I’m putting it on my list of Christmas gifts! (I personally like the black one, but I know that these stripes are popular.) This bag not only slides under the seat of airplanes, but it’s the perfect bag for a quick trip.

I was impressed with how roomy this bag looks. I’d rate this as one of the best gifts for people who love to travel. Click here for latest price.

Volher Anti-Theft Laptop Backpack with USB Charging Port and Water Resistant

There are so many options when looking for the perfect travel backpack or personal travel item. When looking for gifts for world travelers, you want to keep in mind their safety. This bag has safety in mind with many anti-theft features. Click here for latest price.

High Sierra Elite TSA-Friendly Laptop Backpack

I own this bag and I’m telling ya, if your traveler love pockets and space, then this is the bag for them. It can fit so much stuff! Sometimes I have it so packed that it’s a little tight fitting under the seat in front of me on the plane, but…it fits! Click here for latest price.

Lily & Drew Casual Travel Backpack with Doctor Style Top Opening

All of these bags are great gifts for travelers, but a friend of mine has this bag and she’d swear this is the bag to choose! She’s obsessed with the large wide opening. This bag will be perfect as a birthday gift or Christmas travel ideas. Click here for latest price.

Gift Ideas for the Airplane

Flying can be so uncomfortable, but with these cool gift ideas, they can make flying a little more bearable. Especially if you’re stuck in a middle seat!

We’ll share five items that will make your traveler more comfortable. If you’re looking for gifts for someone traveling abroad, then you don’t want to pass these up!

Twist Memory Foam Travel Pillow 

This neck pillow is actually on my list! If you’re looking for good gift ideas, a neck pillow is a good place to start for your traveler.

I like the design of this neck pillow, because I don’t like how the others wrap all the way around your neck. The flexibility of this one looks like it’d be more comfortable. Click here for latest price.

The reviews are great too! If you’re looking for useful travel gifts that provide comfort, then check this out! Click here for latest price.

Metene Inflatable Travel Pillow with Carrying Bag

I know I said I didn’t like normal neck pillows, but we do own these. I don’t wear it around my neck though. I inflate it and just hold it when I nap on the plane.

What I like about this one is that it inflates. You don’t have to carry around an awkward pillow everywhere. I actually leave it out of the bag and store it flat in my backpack. Click here for latest price.

3D Contoured Cup Sleeping Mask with Ear Plugs

A good gift idea for your traveler is a travel gift basket. You can put a travel-themed basket together and include a few of these comfort items.

There are a few inexpensive gift ideas on our list, and this eye mask and ear plug combo is one of those. When trying to sleep on a plane or in a car, this eye mask will allow for better rest. Click here for latest price.

Travel Gift Ideas to Wear

A couple of these are practical gifts, but a few are rather fun travel gifts to wear. 

When traveling, you need to be prepared for any type of weather, and a good piece of advice is to dress in layers. We’ll share two “must have” articles of clothing that are also very cool travel gifts.

Quikflip 2-in-1 Reversible Backpack Hoodie (As Seen on Shark Tank) 

Who else hates bringing a jacket only to have to haul it around or wear it around your waist? Me. I’m that person.

This hoodie actually turns into a backpack, so you can wear it around rather than carry it! Genius.

This is #1 pick for top Christmas gifts for travelers, well…top gift ideas for people who travel, period.  Click here for latest price. 

Passport Stamp Heart Travel T-Shirt

Looking for travel gift ideas for her? This passport stamp t-shirt is adorable and shows their love for traveling the world. Click here for latest price.

This necklace has a plane, the globe, and a cute little accent pearl. This is perfect when searching for the best travel gifts for her. Click here for latest price. 

EZRUN Lightweight Waterproof Hooded Raincoat

I can’t recommend this raincoat enough! It literally folds up to to be 7in. X 7in. and it’s flat!

Your traveler can keep this in their luggage or personal travel bag at all times, and know that they always have a lightweight raincoat when traveling.

It has great reviews and comes in different colors. This will make a good gift for someone traveling. Click here for latest price.

I Travel For Food T-shirt

Alrighty. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m all about this t-shirt! Who is that foodie in your life?! Who will travel the world just to eat? (I’m raising my hand.)

Best Travel Electronics 

Do you have that person in your life who loves anything electronic? All of these are incredibly useful travel gifts and we own all but two of them.

Two of the following are perfect gift ideas for world travelers. The other three are more for comfort and/or convenience.

Anker Portable Charger – Power Bank 

A good power bank is our absolute top travel accessory recommendation. With one charge, this power bank can recharge your phone or laptop multiple times! It has saved the day more times than we can count .

There are some things you can go cheap on, but a power bank isn’t an item I’d choose to do that with. Click here for latest price.

Universal Travel Adapter for Worldwide Travel with 4 USB Ports

Searching for world travel gift ideas? A top notch travel adapter is what you’re looking for. This is another purchase that I suggest you not go too cheap on. The adapter has to be reliable.

Another thing to look for. Check to see how many USB ports it has. The more the betterClick here for latest price.

OPOLAR Mini Portable Battery Operated Travel Fan

When sleeping, I have to have white noise. A lot of hotels or Airbnbs don’t have fans or any other noise to break up the silence. I’ve been traveling with this fan now for almost a year, and it’s been one of the best purchases. Click here for latest price.

Bose QuietComfort Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

A good set of noise cancelling headphones are a must with frequent travelers. In our opinion, Bose headphones are the best noise cancelling headphones for travelers.

We have had these headphones for year now and they’re in excellent condition and we’ve had zero issues.

If you’re looking for a “big gift” for your traveler, they will absolutely love these. Click here for latest price.

Airfly Wireless Transmitter – Connect Airpods & Wireless Headphones to Airplane Entertainment Systems

I’m going to start of by saying that we don’t own this yet, buuuuut, we will be owning one by Christmas! (wink, wink)

If you already own a nice set of headphones like Airpods, this device allows you to use those to connect to the TVs on airplanes and to the TVs in gyms.

If your traveler has a nice set of wireless headphones already, then adding AirFly as a gift will be the perfect match! Click here for latest price.

Travel Gift Card

These are a few of the best travel gift cards. If you don’t feel comfortable picking out gifts for someone traveling, then gift cards or travel gift certificates allow you to still give knowing that they’ll buy something they truly need or want for their travels. 

Airbnb Gift Card

Personally, my favorite travel gift card. If you’re buying for a travel family, this tops the family gift ideas! 

Every little bit helps when traveling, so covering a portion of their accommodations is HUGE and will be appreciated! Click here to purchase. Gift Card
