For the friend who is off jet setting, living his or her best life, exploring different cultures and worlds, we’ve compiled a list of the perfect gifts you can get him or her for their next adventure. 

There are several things to keep in mind for travelers. Weight, practicality, and items that add to their experience without jeopardizing distracting from it, such as when the focus becomes the photo and not being present in the moment. 

Practical Stuff:

  • Some simple forms of documentation for the reflective traveler include items like a sturdy, sleek notebook

  • A good travel purse or backpack with a charger that is lightweight and durable is essential for the many trips on planes, trains, automobiles and by foot that your traveler may go through. Here are several anti-theft options. 


  • Ideas of travel destinations can come from many forms but if your gift recipient is stuck trying to figure out the big question of “what’s next?”, inspire them with these bucket list books

  • Get your traveler a miniature version of a cool travel destination like these Nanoblocks of the Sagrada Familia, or Kyoto

  • World travelers love reminders of the world. Get them some inspirational living room art of the world

  • How about a world map scratcher so they can keep track of all the countries they will go to in their lifetime?

Camera Gear:

  • For anyone who dabbles in photography and wants quality photos, the Olympus OMD EM-10 is an amazing camera we loved while traveling. It’s lightweight compared to all other DLSR cameras and small enough to tuck away into a backpack. Pair it with a good 25mm Zuiko portrait lens, a custom protective shell, and your traveler will be equipped with a vintage style high quality camera for their trip.  

  • Or for the Instagrammer, if an iPhone and filters are all your traveling friend prefers for convenience, pair them with a set of iPhone lenses including wide angle, fish eye and more. This one ups the iPhone camera alone and is easy to snap on. 

Make the long flight bearable:

  • Is your travel friend stuck heading across the country? They probably have some long flight times. Treat them to a handful of cocktails with these clever cocktail kits!
