More Gift Ideas for the Traveler

Wondering what to get that hard to buy for traveler? Here are some great ideas!

Compression socks

Think you are too young for compression socks? Not so!! Anyone that gets on a plane for a long time will love these…like a massage – you are never too young!


Athletes wear them and you can get them in all sorts of fun colors.


With – or without feet.


Travel journal

This really is the perfect gift. You can never have too many and the selection can really be customized to anyone!

Looking back over your travel thoughts it so much fun! Here is what my then 4 year old had to say about a trip to South Carolina.

Cute owls are perfect for those hard to shop for tweens.


More studious person? Leather! I love this one you can customize with intials – from Etsy.


A person of few words? This postcard sized ‘bullet’ journal – for jotting notes and inspirations rather than paragraphs


Girly? She can ‘stash’ her ideas here! Add a feathery or glittery pen…


Boy? Star Trek! (As a Trekkie, I love this one!)


How about a destination journal? I love this celtic knot cover for a trip to Ireland!


Not sure about a journal? Try a family journal. Everyone adds a little. Then, pass it around the dinner table. Add glue sticks (for tickets or napkins)  and colored pencils.


Low on money, but big on creativity?  Thank you ‘freckles on our face’ this postcard journal idea.


For your gift, you include some pens/pencils, a hole punch as small as you can find, and some of these rings. Include directions: Buy postcards along the way and jot notes on the back of each. Use hole punch and ring to keep the whole thing together! Put together in a bag and add a bow!

Tea, please?

I LOVE this little thing. LOVE it.  (Once I used it to make ramen noodle soup in a hotel room! Talk about save money!)


It is wonderful to be able to have a cup of tea or hot chocolate in your hotel room at bedtime – in your pjs. Add a few packets of ‘just add water’ hot chocolate for a very thoughtful gift for the traveler.


Add a few packets of your traveler’s favorite sweetener for a wonderfully thoughtful gift!


Warm feet

Am I the only one who can’t sleep with cold feet? Slippers/socks come in every size and shape you can imagine.


Enjoy the search for the perfect item for your traveler!

Flip Flops

I absolutely never leave home without ‘slippers’ of some sort. While not normally worried about germs too much….floors in hotel rooms gross me out!


Cheap and lightweight $Store flip flops are EXCELLENT slippers. They weigh nothing and take up no room in the suitcase. You can also wear them down the hall to the breakfast room or patio and let your feet breath in the evening. Wear in the shower if it is ….questionable. Wear to the beach if you stumble across one!

These come in a little bag!


Take a trip to the $ Store and buy some for the whole travel family!
