We wish that every gift was a surprise trip to another exotic location. But, let’s be honest, our budget does just not allow for that. As a traveling couple our gifts for each other tend to be, well, travel related! This budget friendly gift guide will help you find the best surprise for your special someone.
1. Document Holder
We love our document holder. It is easy to keep all our travel documents together and when packing we already know it is all in one place. It helps when you are like Jaz and forget things behind. We carry our VIP lounge passes, travel cards, student IDs and of course our passports and plane tickets. Please do not carry all your money and cards in here, rather have an emergency card and cash placed separately.
2. Wheeled Carry on
Even though we use a backpack most of the time, we love when we travel with a wheeled carry on. It helps when you are carrying heavy stuff. It is the best when you only need to use it from the airport to the hotel, as wheeling it through a city can prove to be less than exciting.
3. Carryon Attachment
It is important to have a safe and easy to grab your purse when traveling. Make sure your bag has a zipper so nothing easily falls out. It is even better if you can attach it to your carry on, so you do not need to worry about carrying everything in your hands.
4. Camera Neck Strap
After the passport, phone and money, a camera is the most important gadget when traveling. It is key to have something to hold it well to avoid dropping it or misplacing it. A camera neck strap does not need to be the generic one that comes with the camera, but can serve as a cute accessory.
The worst thing when traveling for a long period of time is to hear a baby crying or conversation which is just a little too loud. It is super relaxing and enjoyable to be able to listen to your own music.
6. Battery Pack
We hate when our phone or camera runs out of battery, then we cannot take more pictures of the amazing places we are visiting. That is why we strongly recommend to travel with an extra battery bank. We prefer solar ones, but any works a great small gift for that travel loving someone.
7. Luggage tags
Never lose a luggage again. Well, it is up to the airline not to lose it, so it is important to always have your info on a luggage tag so they can figure out who it belongs to! At the same time a bright tag will make spotting your luggage at the airport carousel easier.
8. Water bottle
9. Custom Hat
What says more I love you that knowing your significant other. We love our custom hats and I am pretty sure you will too. We have some designs options, but you can also ask for a custom hand painted.
10. Computer sleeve
Take care of your computer while travel and do not let it scratch or something spill on it. We always travel with a laptop to write this blog and edit images, without a cover it would be subject to every dent or scratch along the way.
11. Camera Lenses
A lens can be expensive, but are necessary for amazing travel photography. If you get your loved one a lens, make sure it is compatible with their camera and they will love you! If they do not have a camera, there are also lens attachments for cell phones to easily up your photo game.
12. Packing cubes
13. Samuel Hubbard Shoes
The stylish Samuel Hubbard shoes are the most comfortable walking travel shoes. These light weight leather shoes will make your feet feel like a day in the spa, even after miles of walking.
