Selecting a unique, thoughtful gift for each person on your holiday shopping list can take time and research. You’re in luck! We’ve done some of that research for you. We’re back with our annual holiday gift guide and ten gift suggestions for the avid traveler in your life.
Fair warning: As a travel lover yourself, you may be tempted to treat yourself to one (or all) of these great gifts. Go ahead! You deserve it.
An Azamara Voyage
Of course, we had to begin our list with the ultimate gift for any travel lover: an Azamara cruise! Nothing says, “I love you” at the holidays like a surprise vacation.
With unique, immersive itineraries calling on destinations all over the world, there’s no shortage of voyages to choose from. Consider an Alaskan adventure, a trip to the Land Down Under, or a Mediterranean summer escape. You really can’t go wrong when you’re cruising with Azamara!
Kate Spade Going Places Watch
What’s the perfect gift for a chic woman who’s always planning her next vacation? We recommend a trendy timepiece that evokes her love of travel. Kate Spade’s Going Places watch features a cute map-print dial that will appeal to any fashionista with a touch of wanderlust.
Sure, you can easily access maps on your phone these days. But for those who prefer old-school navigation, why not upgrade? These Crumpled City Maps are soft, waterproof, and virtually indestructible. That makes them easier to use and stash than traditional folding paper maps. And, they won’t use up data on your phone. They’re available for more than fifty cities worldwide, including beloved destinations like Sydney, Barcelona, Rome, and Hong Kong.
Moment Wide Lens iPhone Attachment
As the iPhone has evolved so have iPhone camera attachments. The latest favorite is the wide-angle lens by Moment. This tiny attachment clips onto your camera and instantly doubles what you can capture in one photo. Perfect for capturing stunning landscape shots while abroad! It’s available for both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well as past iPhone models.
The wide-angle lens makes a perfect gift for a traveler looking to up his or her iPhone photography game. Moment produces several other types of lenses including macro and fisheye, and handy accessories that will help turn your iPhone into the only camera you’ll need on vacation.
If your loved one prefers a traditional camera over smartphone shots, the Nikon D5500 is sure to put a smile on his or her face. This camera is a great DSLR for beginners thanks to its easy-to-use features like a tilting touchscreen and excellent auto-focus. Built-in WiFi makes it easy to instantly share photos with a smartphone or tablet. Grab this gift for the globetrotting shutterbug in your life.
Travelon Theft-Proof Messenger Bag
Seasoned travelers know the importance of taking precautions when abroad. After all, who wants the hassle of a lost or stolen wallet when you’re meant to be enjoying a relaxing vacation? This messenger bag from Travelon has theft-proof features like zippered pouches, a cut-proof shoulder strap, and RFID blocking card and passport slots. It also has a handy side pocket for stashing a water bottle—a necessity for days spent exploring onshore. It’s sleek and stylish to boot, making it a great gift for any world traveler.
Rapid Repair Sewing Kit
For a friend or family member who puts as much thought into packing for a trip as planning one, this Rapid Repair sewing kit is an inexpensive and thoughtful gift. After all, a chic traveler’s worst nightmare is a fashion emergency on the go. The kit contains black and white thread, needles, pins, safety pins, shirt buttons, a tape measure, and scissors.
This convenient device is a Jack-of-all-Trades. It’s a wireless speaker, making it easy to play tunes or podcasts in your hotel or stateroom. It’s also a flashlight, perfect for lighting your way, or your book, after dark. And as if that’s not enough, the Buckshot Pro is also a portable battery. This rechargeable battery can power up your iPhone on the go—something every tech savvy traveler needs. With so many uses, any traveler on your holiday shopping list will appreciate this practical gift.
Beauty Products Gift Bag
What should you gift a loved one who’s about to embark on a long journey? Get creative and assemble a custom beauty products bag. Travel-sized toiletries, sunscreen, and cleansing wipes are always handy. If your friend or family member has long hair, consider including a portable styling tool, extra hair elastics, and a good quality dry shampoo. Pick up some sheet masks for extra hydration after a long flight, and this Travel Elixir to minimize jet lag.
How To Read The Menu Books
Foodies and travel aficionados alike will love these chic Herb Lester guides to reading menus abroad. The discreet, wallet-sized books help travelers navigate the ins and outs of ordering food in France, Italy, and Spain – three of our favorite destinations for great cuisine!
