Great Gift Ideas For Jetsetters! *

*Collaborative post.

Are you looking for the perfect gift for your friend or family member who’s always jet-setting around the world? Here are three fun ideas that they’re sure to appreciate and remind them of their travels. 

Personalised Maps

There are all kinds of map ideas you could go with when it comes to gifts. One of the most popular personalised map options is a scratch-off map, these have a special coating a bit like a big scratch card, this can be scratched off to reveal the countries that the traveller has visited. This allows them to keep track of the places they’ve been to and plan their future trips as well. Another option is a world map that can be personalised with their name or a special message, or personalised old maps such as a vintage map of a place that’s special to them. This could be the place they were born, somewhere they spent time living or if it’s a partner you’re gifting to it could be a map of the first trip you took together, the place you got engaged, married or other special city or country

Travel Journal/ Diary

A travel journal is a fantastic way to document your experiences, feelings, and observations while you explore the world, and could make a great gift or keepsake for the jet setter in your life. Since you’ll be buying it as a gift, it makes sense to go with something a bit more special than a basic notepad- how about something customised or that uses beautiful materials? You could go with something with a wooden or leather cover, or a piece from Etsy designed with beautiful designs on the pages. If you choose a travel journal with a wallet style pocket this gives the person you’re gifting to a place to store things like ticket stubs, receipts for special travel purchases they made and other bits of memorabilia to make their memories come to life.

Photo Book of a Past Trip

A photo book of a past trip your loved one has taken is an excellent gift idea for someone who loves to travel, because it allows them to revisit their past adventures and relive the experiences they’ve had. The photos in the book serve as a tangible reminder of the sights, sounds, and memories of the trip, and means that special photos aren’t just sitting unloved on their phone. It’s a great way to share the excitement of travel with others, too, as friends and family members can flip through the pages and see the incredible journey that was taken. Go with a nice hardcover style and it makes the perfect alternative to a coffee table book that can be kept out to be viewed all the time. If you want something that they can put together themselves, a scrapbook kit would be an idea that way they could build up the book themselves but have everything they need to do so. 

Which of these ideas would you choose to gift to a loved one that loves travelling?
