New Generation Travel Pillow

First up on this best gifts for people who love to travel list is this travel pillow. I’m calling it a new generation travel pillow as it’s truly revolutionary in my opinion! I was able to sleep for a majority of my recent non-stop 15 hour flight to South Africa and back, due to this amazing contraption. It is easy to inflate and folders to the size of a palm. I cannot recommend this pillow more and it would be an ideal gift for those frequent long distance fliers in your family or on your friends list.

OG Neck Pillow

If you think the neck pillow above may not be your gift recipients thing, then this original version of the neck pillow is tried and tested. This also is easy to inflate and deflate and folders into a case that’s the size of your palm.

Travel Scrapbook

This travel scrapbook is a good gift for the scrapbookers or crafts people in your life. It comes with a 73 page book, box to contain it and several accessories.

Air Tags

Air tags are a really useful gift you can give people who love to travel. I actually bought these myself recently. With so many airlines loosing bags over the summer and holidays, I’ve heard many success stories of people being able to track their own bags down even when airlines couldn’t. It basically acts like a little tracking device for your bag and works if there are other Bluetooth enabled iPhones nearby.

Books are next up on this gifts for people who love to travel list. I have all of these books and I LOVE them! The first 3 make great coffee table additions too.

  • Destinations of a Lifetime – I use this book to add places and adventures to my bucket list
  • Where to Go When – This book is brilliant in my opinion as it lists down where to go when depending on the season, weather and other country specific considerations
  • The Travel Book – This is a fantastic book with lots of pictures to inspire you to travel around the world!

These next two books come from my favorite author, Rick Steves! Rick is famous for his extremely detailed and often times humorous guidebooks. I have most often used his guidebooks in lieu of an audio guide or guided tour in Europe and they are brilliant. In addition to these guidebooks, he has also authored several other travel books. I have read both of these below and have really enjoyed them.

Travel Calendar

Yes, I do love rick Steves! This 365 page calendar contains beautiful pictures with descriptions from Europe. I actually got this calendar from a work white elephant gift exchange (I may or may not have hinted that I wanted this LOL). My favorite thing about this calendar is comparing it to my own travels to Europe and seeing how many places I’ve been to are covered in this calendar.

Wooden World Map

This beautiful wooden world map comes in four sizes and four color variations and makes for an ideal house warming gift. You can also purchase country flag pins as the markers.

Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are life changing! I know that’s a bold statement but I do stand by it! I travel with a suitcase just 4 inches higher than a carry-on. Last year I was on a 18 day trip and was able to pack clothes for 18 days and then some extras too all in my small sized checked bag, all thanks to these packing cubes. If your travel loving gift receivers not a packing cube convert, it’s time to convert them!

Bluetooth Wireless Audio Transmitter

I actually got this from work and thought it was a great gift for people who love to travel! Most earbuds are wireless these days, so you may have to ask for a headset on your flight to watch a movie from the tv screen. With this gadget, you can plug it to the audio jack in your monitor and pair it with your wireless earbuds to pick up the audio without ever having to wear wired headphones again!

About Me

Welcome to my blog and thank you for visiting! Believe it or not this blog is not my full time job! I work 8-5 in Supply Chain and run this blog after work!  I’ve dreamed of traveling the world since I was a child and at 44 countries and counting, I am so grateful to get to live that dream.

To say travel is my passion is truly an understatement! What I love most about travel is that I get to connect with locals and meet with fellow travelers from around the world. In addition, travel also enables all my other interests like photography, architecture, art, music and food! Please feel free to share any posts or leave me feedback on how I can improve. Thank you and happy travels!
