Searching for the perfect gift for a travel lover beyond the scratch map and packing cubes*?

* Which are great gifts by the way 🙂

You’d like to give unique travel gifts or actual ones they would use? Then you’re in the right place! From handmade personalised travel accessories to stocking stuffers for travellers, this fabulous list will save the day when it comes to getting useful and unique gifts for travel lovers.

Finding the best gift for someone who likes to travel can be, so I’ve been told by my friends and family, difficult and challenging. Take for example nomads for whom the mere thought of getting something else to pack can induce a mild panic attack, especially if they travel with a carry-on only or just shopping for men that travel, now that feels like an impossible undertaking. 

In fact, there are a wide array of wonderful gift ideas for travel lovers, some practical and useful ones and even some that would sprinkle wanderlust in their daily lives. The reality is that the web offers a multitude of choices for travel-related gifts, in fact, the problem is that there are too many choices, enough to make anyone’s head spin.  It can literally take hours to sift through all the wonderful Etsy shops (I know because I did), read the many reviews on Amazon and yes, the oh so many “best gifts for travellers” lists. So I’ve done the homework for you. 

I’ve hand-picked the best travel gifts in this amazing list for your convenience, so now all you have to do is get comfortable in your favourite chair with a good cup of coffee – or a nice glass of wine – and shop that perfect travel gift from the comfort of your home. 

Here’s what you will get from this post
