The holiday season is the time of year for gift-giving. Many of us have that special friend that makes for a great travel buddy. Of course, the best gift to give your travel partner is an actual trip, but that cannot always be the case. Here is a list of some of the gifts travelers love most and options for every budget!

Travel Journal

There is no better way to capture your travel experiences than on real paper. A travel journal allows you to be creative by writing your favorite memories down, drawing a picture, pasting a photo, or write how you were feeling. After years of traveling with a travel journal, it will be a great feeling of nostalgia to look back on all of the amazing adventures you and your travel buddy have been on.

Check out this vegan travel journal made from cork and recycled paper. It’s perfect for writing all of your great memories in and knowing you’re sustainable throughout the whole process too.

The Wander Club - Coin Collection

This gift is perfect for all travel lovers. The Wander Club is a keychain that holds all of your tokens from all of the places you’ve been. You can add the keychain right to your car keys, so you’re reminded of all your favorite travels every time you go out. What’s even better is you can give back in the process! Gifting the Wander Chain and Travel Tokens to your travel buddy will also provide a meal to child in need.

Leather Passport Cover

A personalized passport cover is a great gift for your travel friends who frequently travel internationally. After carrying your passport to every country you go, it’s bound to see a little wear and tear. A passport cover is great for protection without being too bulky. It can also hold credit cards, boarding passes, and extra cash, so you can have everything all in one place.

This simple leather passport cover is great for keeping organized and protecting your documents. It comes in various colors too!

Travel Scratch Map

A travel scratch map is a unique gift to give your travel buddies this holiday season. You can display a unique travel story by simply grabbing a coin and scratching off all the destinations you’ve been to. Once you scratch off each country, city, or state, you will discover the amazing artwork underneath. This is a great gift for your travel friend to display in their home for all to see their incredible adventures.

Camping Hammock

A hammock is a great gift for travelers who love the outdoors and backpacking adventures. You can string a hammock to relax after a long hike or on the beach to enjoy the breathtaking views. Travel hammocks are great because they are extremely strong, lightweight, and easy to pack. They are able to fold up into a small bag, so you don’t waste any space in your backpack or suitcase.

Great durable hammock options are the Eno Hammock or the Kammok Roo!

Travel Book

Books are a great way to inspire wanderlust. There are so many types of travel books for the foodies, nature lovers, artists, history buffs, and road trippers. Travel books are a great gift for anyone looking for travel inspiration. Here are a few of our book recommendations that make great gifts:

Annual Multi-Trip Travel Protection Plan

This is the perfect gift for people who want to experience things. It’s hard to buy a gift or a trip for your travel buddy when their plans are uncertain. An annual travel protection plan can give them coverage for all of their trips, long or short, international or domestic, for a whole. Whether it be a cross-country road trip, a spontaneous weekend getaway in Florida, or a ski excursion in Austria, they will be covered for all their trips under one plan. You can visit our website or talk to your travel advisor to learn more about our Annual Multi-trip Protector Plan for yourself or your travel companion!
