People who love to travel can be tough to shop for. The downside is that its hard to find something cool for someone who is constantly exploring new and interesting places with new and interesting things. The upside is that you already know what they love to do – travel!

A gift for your favorite globetrotter or staycationer will help them explore new places and things to do. Whether it will save them money, give them a new experience, or make their trekking easier, here are the best gifts for travelers in 2019.

Titan Luggage

Best Luggage: Titan

Has their carry-on seen better days? Are they still lugging around a duffel bag from college? Time to upgrade your jet-setter’s luggage. We’re partial to Titan luggage these days. Their X2 Spinner and Xenon carry-on bags are made of a lightweight but strong polycarbonate shell (read: easy to lift into overhead bins) and have features like built-in TSA locks and double spinner wheels. They also have several backpacks and cross-body bags that are perfect for toting around things like laptops, books, and cameras. If your explorer is more of a heavy packer, then the Prior Spinner Trolley in size “large” is tough, lightweight, and has a 108 L capacity to pack it all in.

Camera Cube

Best for Photographers: Camera Cube

Every photographer with good equipment needs a way to keep their stuff safe when trekking about. Instead of an extra bag for the camera, the Wandrd Camera Cube has adjustable padded compartments for DSLR cameras and accessories and can fit inside a backpack, duffel, or piece of luggage. Its a perfect space-saving gift for a shutterbug.

Retro Camera Case for iPhone with Neck Strap

Best for Selfie Takers: Retro Camera Case and Neck Strap for iPhone

So, this is adorable. It’s an iPhone case fashioned after an old school camera, complete with a neck strap. First, it’s cute and kitschy and looks like a camera. Simple as that. Second, it protects your phone. Third, it keeps your phone around your neck so its easy to keep track of. Win – win – win!

Scratch Off World Map

Best Memento: Scratch Off World Map

This scratch off world map is the perfect way for any traveler to keep track of where they’ve been. Just use a coin to scratch off the top gold foil layer from the countries they’ve visited. The bottom layer is a colorful world map that makes each check off the old bucket list shine through. It’s also a reminder that there’s still lots of the world left to see!

Best Practical Gift: Barrel Shaped Cosmetic Travel Bag

Anyone who has ever been on vacation knows that travel cosmetics and toiletries can be a pain to keep track of. We love this handy little bag for many reasons. The “barrel” shape and drawstring top make it easy to set right down on a countertop and open up to see everything inside. It’s a great way to keep things together and organized. Speaking of organized, this little bag is loaded with elastic loops and section dividers to keep everything from cosmetics to travel-sized products in its place. Any Type-A traveler would approve. Want to make this gift even better? Pre-pack it with travel-sized products.

Whether it’s practical, fun, of a bit of both, any adventurer would be excited to get one of these awesome gifts. Now that you’ve got that crossed off your list, time to plan your next vacation!
