Who doesn’t want to travel the world, have new experiences, and meet new people? Most of us, I bet. However, some travel addicts can’t sit still. Traveling is their life and love.

It can be somewhat hard to find the perfect gift for that travel lover. Partly because, with so many places to visit and so many experiences, you can’t really know what that person will love.

Also, when you think you’ve found the perfect gift, you realize that that person has dozens of that item from different people. So you’re stuck between getting them the same gifts and just giving them money.

If you’re in such a fix, worry not. In this piece, we will look at twenty unique ideas for that travel-lover. This list contains a lot of gifts with different price points, so read on to find the perfect gift for that travel addict.

Twenty Unique Gift Ideas for That Travel Addict

If you’re like most people, then you’d want your gift to really make a statement. However, you may not want your gift to be too over-the-top, that it makes the receiver guilty.

This list will accommodate both extremes, whether you’re going for a tiny token of appreciation or you want to blow them away.

1. Postcard Displays

A postcard display is a pretty unique but also very useful gift for travel lovers. That is only if the traveler in question loves collecting postcards.

These displays are a great way to display their conquest. It can also be an interior décor item if you place it at a strategic place.

2. Portable Charger

Let’s face it, most of us can’t put our phones down for a good two minutes. This statement is especially true for travelers. They’re always snapping pics and sharing them on social media or checking hotel reviews.

A portable charger is a perfect gift for the traveler who lives and breathes social media. What’s more, there are lots of these chargers on the market with very fair prices

A small tip, don’t forget to check the charge capacity denoted as mAH. This figure denotes how much charge the portable charger can carry.

3. Headlamps

We have travelers, and we have explorers. If the receiver is more of the latter than the former, then a headlamp will be the perfect lamp. This headlamp is exactly what they need to unleash their inner Indiana Jones.

Whether you’re camping out late at night or just need to find something in a dark hotel room, these beauties will come in handy. Try to go for the ones with elastic bands, so they don’t easily slip from your head.

4. A World Scratch Map

If you know someone who takes globe-trotting seriously, then the world scratch map will be perfect for that person.

This map is just like any other map with all continents and countries et cetera. Except, you can scratch out the countries you’ve visited. Once you scratch out the entire map, you may have officially traveled the entire world.

Traveling an entire continent is still an impressive feat.

5. Scrapbook for Travels

The traveling experience is amazing and exciting, but so are the memories. A travel scrapbook is one way you can enshrine all your travel memories. It’s ideal for the artsy person who loves to travel.

You can fill this scrapbook with all kinds of souvenirs apart from pictures, of course. Think stuff like seashells or even macaroni pieces you got from Venice. With this scrapbook, the options are unlimited, couple it with a nice pen for a complete gift package.

6. Portable Speaker

What do you give to the travel lover who can’t live with music? Well, a portable speaker seems like a pretty good idea. Portable speakers nowadays are the size of a mug.

However, don’t let the small size fool you; these speakers are really loud. You have plenty of options when it comes to portable speakers. If you don’t mind splurging a bit, you can always settle for Apple’s Homepod speaker.

Apart from Apple, JBL has some really nice portable speakers with almost all the bells and whistles that the Homepod has.

7. Waterproof Dry Bag

For the adventurous traveler, the waterproof dry bag is always a good choice. You don’t even have to go for some kayaking to need this bag. You can use it for your beach escapades or when doing some serious fishing or snorkeling.

8. Water Bottle With Filters

You can also call them filtered water bottles. These water bottles, like the name suggests, have special filters. This filter removes almost all water-borne bacteria, so you don’t have to worry about stomach problems when you’re unsure about the water you drink.

What’s more, these filters can last up to 1000 liters of water. That’s a lot of water for your worldly travels. These filters are also replaceable.

9. Camera BackPack

A camera backpack is a must-have for all those shutterbug travelers. If you’re really serious about your photography, then you know just how important this backpack is

The bag easily fits your camera, all lenses, and any other extra attachment. The Lowerpro Backpacks are the best in the game when it comes to camera backpacks. Go snug one for your travel addict.

10.  Mobile Tripod

The mobile tripod is perfect for capturing those beautiful travel moments on video. The stands are flexible so that you can place them anywhere. It’s also lightweight so you can easily carry it anywhere

11. Happy Card Gift Cards

Not just any gift cards but a Happy Cards gift card. What makes Happy Cards so unique is that they are tailored towards a particular niche. That way, with a Happy Card, you can use it on some of the best places or things where the receivers can get themselves what they really want.

12.  Hand-Painted Globe

Nothing screams love for travel than a hand-painted globe. This will be a perfect gift for that traveler who lives and breathes travel. There are plenty of designs to choose from, just make sure it matches the person’s taste.

13. Handmade Mugs

The title says unique gifts, so not just any mug, but hand-made mugs. No matter where we travel, that cup, we always take our morning coffee. 

A hand-made mug is a perfect way for those travel-maniacs to remember you during their escapades.

Find one with a nice adventurous quote and psyche them up for their next adventure.

14. Passport Holder

No, not those drab passport holders everyone has, think along the lines of custom passport holders. You have plenty of designs to choose from when it comes to these passport holders.

You can go for simple and elegant, or colorful and adventurous. Just like hand-made mugs, you can inscribe a personal message. 

15. Reusable Water Bottle

Get them a reusable water bottle, and also do the environment a huge favor. With this water bottle, you don’t have to keep buying water bottles with every travel trip. They can keep the water cool for over a day.

They can also keep liquids hot for a pretty long time. They are small compact and you can plop them inside your travel bag or attach them to your backpack

16. Compact Cocktail Kit

For all your people who enjoy a little buzz during their travels, the carry on cocktail kit is the ideal gift. This kit comes in a small tin and contains all the essentials needed to mix up a nice drink.

They’re pretty tiny these cocktail making tools, but they get the job done. However, warn them not to take too much happy juice, or they might be thrown off the flight.

17. Portable Luggage Scale

Let’s be honest, we all sometimes think the airports aren’t really too honest about our luggage weight. This portable scale is just what you need to catch these airports red-handed.

Also, you may just need to know your luggage weight in advance, so you know what you’ll end up paying at the airport. If you’ve carried too much, you can leave a couple of things before heading to the airport.

18. Eye Mask

Sort of a cliché, but eye masks really come in handy during flight. We all know a couple of people who can’t sleep without total darkness. Plus, everybody knows travelers love their sleep.

19. Neck Pillow

There’s no better companion for those long haul flights like a neck pillow. You need to get a neck pillow that’s super comfortable, small enough to fit in the backpack. 

20. Packing Cubes

Packing cubes are a great way to keep your luggage organized when you pack. They are small and snugly fit into your backpack contours. 

BONUS: Bespoke Phone Case

A one-of-a-kind smartphone case is a gift that truly makes a statement. With so many designs and photos you can decorate the phone case, you can make it truly their own. It’s more than just for aesthetics because phone covers protect the gadgets from scratches and dents. Custom Envy offers a range of cases and phone models that you can transform into a bespoke phone cover that’s uniquely yours (or for your friend and loved ones)! 

Get to Shopping

Hopefully, you now have some pretty brilliant gift ideas for that travel addict. Remember to align your gifts with the person in question. 

A Bluetooth speaker won’t do grandma any good. Always try to go for the customs stuff you can personalize and don’t be a penny pincher when it comes to gifting your folks.
