So, it's that time of year again and you have someone on your holiday shopping list that fancies a trip here and there. You're wondering what to get them because socks or perfume just won't cut it again this year. Well, here are some solid gift ideas for the travel lover in your life that they will be sure to thank you for. (Ahem, husband take note...)
For the Accessorizer
Leather Passport Case - There's nothing like traveling in style and a passport case adds just the right bit of flair. Plus, ones like these from Mark & Graham can hold your boarding pass, come in all sorts of colors, and are monogrammable. Not looking to splurge? J Crew Factory has some cute ones that are budget-friendly and get the job done all the same.
For the Coffee or Tea Drinker
City Vignette Mug - These mugs from Anthropologie have the cutest little details and come in various cities like Rome, Paris, London and more. Gift just one, their favorite city of course, or gift the entire set. The choice is yours and either way you can't go wrong.
For the Home Decorator
London Embroidered Pillow Cover - This pillow cover from Pottery Barn brings all the symbolic icons of old Londontown to your living room. If London is not the city you're looking for there's also Paris and San Fran to choose from. Pillow insert sold separately.
Travel-themed Ornament - Because it's always fun to add a new ornament to the tree.
For the Bartender
City Map Glasses - What better way to enjoy a cocktail than in a glass with your city etched into it! These make both a useful AND a thoughtful gift.
Carry-on Cocktail Kit - We all know those flights that require a strong cocktail. And with this old fashioned kit you don't have to settle for whiskey and ginger. Makes a cute stocking stuffer too!
For the Gadget Holder
Roll-up Travel Charger - Charge multiple devices on the go and minimize clutter with this guy from surprisingly Restoration Hardware. Who knew they sold anything but gorgeous furniture?
Global Universal Charger Kit - With 6 interchangeable tips, there isn't a country you won't be able to plug into.
For the Special Mister
Custom Map Cufflinks - Add a memorable or favorite location to your man's outfit. Wedding or honeymoon location perhaps? The location of your first home together? Here's your chance to get creative and thoughtful!
For the Special Lady
Custom Map Pendant - I love these pieces by A.Jaffe. What a great way to cherish a favorite destination and a diamond marks the spot of a special memory. So cute!
Finally, you could always opt instead for a blanket scarf, a new bag or piece of luggage, some noise-canceling headphones, or a toiletry case filled with travel-size goodies. Those always make great gifts but aren't these way more fun?! Happy shopping ;)
