5 Gifts FOR EVERY Travel Enthusiast
Gift Your Travel Bug Today!
I absolutely love browsing through Etsy and shopping for travel themed accessories, decor and items for my friends/family (and of course myself). So whenever I'm approached by someone looking to gift a traveller celebrating their first solo trip abroad, birthday adventure, or whatever other occasion arises, I always recommend they check out Etsy where anyone can easily buy vintage and handmade goods from awesome people around the world. Here are a few of my favourite finds!
(1) travel money Jar
A traveller saving for their first trip abroad can run into a few hundred difficulties and temptations along the way. Honestly though, saving for a travel adventure is not an easy thing. But now travellers can rejoice and thank the heavens for Wide Eyed Wanderer's Travel Jars! The design of the world map spanning along the outside of each jar will serve as a reminder for every traveller that the money that goes into this jar is for their next adventure and nothing else. You know what they say, 'travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer'.

(2) Travel Map
The age of travel-inspired home decor has taken off once again! This new scratch travel map trend has the most resolute minimalist decorating their walls with these bad boys. I've browsed around Etsy and have to say that this Premium Quality World Traveler Map – Large Black & Gold Edition is my favourite, and only goes for a little under $50.00 CAD. So allow your travel buddy to scratch around this map and reminisce on their travel adventures. It's sure to inspire them to take flight once again.
(3) Passport Carrier
I'm a sucker when it comes to leather travel accessories (R.I.P Danier Leather Store) so when I discovered The Expedition Personalized Leather Passport Cover Holder Compass Passport Travel I was over the moon, and your travel bug will be too! Holtz Leather Co crafts a lot of professional and chic leather goods from bags to portfolio holders and leather tumblr sleeves. (You may even end up gifting yourself ). Being able to add an engraving is a huge bonus as well. Reasonably priced at just under $50 this is definitely a gift to consider for the wanderer in your life.
(4) A Cute Accessory
Just a little something to remind them that someone's waiting back at home <3. Made by CharmedTraveler an Etsy favourite, their Airplane Gold or Silver Lariat Necklace, is the perfect travel inspired jewelry for the world traveler in your life. They'll be full of wanderlust and memories of you when they wear this gift around their neck. This accessory also makes a great gift if your traveller is already abroad. Sneak it into a Just Thinking About You card, it'll be a nice surprise when they find it enclosed.
This natural cotton net bag is perfect for the farmer's market and takes up no space! If you know that your adventurer will love looking and feeling like a local as they stroll through a market during their next travel adventure, then this eco-friendly bag is definitely for them. Not only is it kind to the environment by cutting down on harmful plastic bags, it's reusable, stows away easily for travel and is comfortable to sling over the shoulder even when filled to the brim.
