Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Whether you have a special guy in your life, a special lady, or just want to treat yourself this year, here's a list of gifts for anyone who has a little wanderlust in their heart.
1. World Scratch Off Map
What better way to show off everywhere you've been than on a stylish world map! It doubles as a cute decoration in your home AND is a great conversation starter when you have guests over.
I have one of these in my home and love getting to scratch off new places after an adventure! Give your valentine the gift of documenting their favorite travel destinations with this fun scratch-off map!
2. Compact Cross-Body Purse
There are tons of options for cross body travel purses; here are a few that we like for their durability, style, and anti-theft features!
3. Wristband Ring Protector
This protective wristband is a great option for anyone who wants to keep a special ring (or even a small key) with them but not necessarily keep it on! It comes in especially handy for those who like to partake in outdoor or particularly messy adventures.
4. Silicone Ring
On the topic of special rings, many people love these silicone bands for traveling or outdoor adventures to ensure their expensive jewelry stays well out of harms way! I have a couple of these and LOVE having the option to wear them. They come in a variety of color and style options so you can even mix and match for different looks!
5. Protective iPad Travel Case
There are hundreds of choices out there when it comes to iPad cases that are perfect to travel with! Here are a couple that we like for their protection and ability to stand the device up for comfortable viewing.
PLEASE check that your iPad version matches the case that you are buying.
6. Travel Journal
Know someone who is always dreaming about their next destination? How about someone who loves to document their travels? This is the gift for them!
You can get this journal with lined, plain white, or blank kraft colored paper, and it even comes with a zipper pouch to keep your paper keepsakes from your travels. I know I love to keep my entry tickets to locations I have visited during my travels and love that this pouch offers me a place to keep them!
1. Carry On Backpack
These backpacks are a great option for anyone who hates those pesky checked bag fees and waiting at the carousel to retrieve said checked bag. They are stylish AND manly, and can fit a weekend’s worth of items as well as a laptop. They will easily fit under the seat in front of you, so you can put your small roller in the overhead bin. These smart backpacks have the perfect size and features to make them optimal for carry-on airline travel!
2. World Coffee Gift Box
Have a special someone who loves to try new tastes when they travel? Do they also love coffee?? Then this one is for you! Give the gift that will transport your valentine to exotic destinations around the world. This coffee gift set boasts roasts from Africa and the Indonesian Island cluster that will make their mouth water and send their wanderlust into high gear!
3. Leather Passport Holder
This is a thoughtful gift that will have your favorite guy traveling in style. But there are probably a million different passport holders out there. Which ones are the best?
We like this one in particular for its extra pockets, style, and RFID protection. With room for a passport, extra cash, and credit cards, ditch the wallet and take this instead!
I also love the personalization offered in this passport holder. This is a slimmer option for guys who also want to carry a wallet. It doesn’t have extra pockets for cash and cards, but it does help sponsor children’s education in Chicago with proceeds from sales.
I love buying good quality products that also benefit charities! The quality of the leather feels great and the engraving adds such a nice personal touch. I got this for my fiancé for Valentine’s Day and can’t wait to give it to him!
4. Silicone Ring
You didn’t think we would forget about the fellas did you?? Here are a few durable, yet stylish looking rings for the man in your life . These are perfect for water sports like scuba diving and snorkeling, as well as outdoor adventures like rock climbing, canyoning or zip lining, where a metal ring may get caught on something or slip off!
5. Protective iPad Travel Case
We have this case and love to travel with it! Protective features, a classic and slim design, sturdy stand, and budget friendly price tag makes this the perfect choice! It even has extra pockets for tucking away important papers you need quick access to while at the airport (eg. when you're stuck with a paper boarding pass or get the dreaded green "check your bag at the gate" tag). Don't let the price fool you. This is as sturdy as they come and is just as good, if not better, than more expensive name brand options!
Disclaimer: PLEASE check that your iPad version matches the case that you are buying. One size does not fit all when it comes to cases!
6. John Muir Books
John Muir was a huge environmental advocate, who focused much on the preservation of national parks in the United States during the late 1800s and early 1900s. His books are perfect for those who are an adventurer at heart!
There's still time to buy the traveler you love the perfect Valentine's gift. What better way to show your love than by encouraging their dreams and feeding their soul?
