Ultimate Gift Guide for Travelers Cover

In lieu of the holidays, I wanted to do a holiday gift guide for travelers. As there are lots of travelers out there and we all travel for different reasons I thought I’d do something a little different and share an ultimate gift guide for travelers.

From Adventure Travelers, Vacationers, Business Travelers, Male explorers, Do-It-Yourselfers and more, I put together  ideas to help you gift your favorite wanderluster (or even yourself)!

The Ultimate Gift Guide for Travelers

The items included range from budget to luxury depending upon taste. Some of these items I’ve bought or been given in the past. Others, are on my wish list.  I’ll let you be the judge…


Gift Ideas for Business Travelers

The business traveler wants to travel light, organized and wrinkle free. They prize their travel reward points from continual hotel stays, white linen sheets, and a hotel gym to unwind.  Efficiency, a professional appearance.

Gift Ideas for D.I.Y. Travelers

These do-it-yourself, no-fuss travelers have it all down. They stay at hostels and guesthouses, know they can buy anything they need on the road. Forgot your swimsuit, no problem, just go down to the market and haggle for one. They’re on a budget and can afford the occasionally splurge.  What can you get them? …What haven’t they thought of?

Gift Ideas for Adventurous Travelers

The outdoorsy folks love a sporty adventure. These folks are always booked for either a diving liveaboard, hill tribe trekking, jungle safaris, river rafting, camping, caving or something that makes them sweat. They want to be physically challenged even if just a little. They enjoy a little ruggedness, love being in nature and prefer a starry night to a four-star hotel.

 Gift Ideas for Travel Photographers

Whether they’re hobbyists or professional, the travel photographer is all about their camera and camera gear.  Urban or outdoors, they’re always armed to capture that perfect shot~ a sunset, the architecture of a church, epic landscape or maybe they want to film the local culture. They are always on the move but when they rest, it’s charging batteries, unloading footage onto their laptop and repacking to hit the streets again.
