Do you love to travel, or have a traveler in your life? Well, our holiday gift guide is here! This year’s guide features some very interesting travel-related items that you (or your favorite travel buddy) will definitely want to get ahold of. Whether it’s a travel necessity or something to help you find more travel inspiration, we’ve got you covered. So here it is, our favorite recommended travel gifts for the holiday season.
Ultimate Journeys for Two
This National Geographic guide was written by Mike and Anne Howard of HoneyTrek.com (or on Instagram: @HoneyTrek), also known as the World’s Longest Honeymooners. After a six-year trip that took them to all seven continents, they have compiled a list of the best 75 adventure-packed destinations for couples. And that list is this amazing book which every couple (and traveler in general) should read for inspiration and travel tips for their next journey. Along with some gorgeous photos, the information inside is organized into chapters by the type of location, such as mountains, islands, jungles, and deserts. While it might take you six years of your own to do everything in this book, you can start with just one adventure at a time thanks to the easy-to-read advice and information within. Grab a copy of Ultimate Journeys for Two on Amazon.

The Best Travel Surge Protector
We’ve written about this before, so it may not come as a surprise that once again we are highly recommending this tiny and affordable gadget by. This little surge protector is perfect for a traveler because it is small, lightweight, features USB plugs, and has rotating prongs to fit into those difficult plug situations (you know you’ve been there).
Travel Plug Adapter
While we’re on the topic of electricity, if you’re going abroad, you’ll likely need a plug adapter. This one is small, compact, and affordable. Featuring a clever sliding design, a variety of plug types can be used. As an added bonus, it also contains a USB plug so that you can stick your phone cord directly into it, leaving the plug itself free for other devices.
It seems that you never have an umbrella when you need one. However, this ultra-compact umbrella is easy to take with you because it is only 7 inches long when folded up. It can fit into any bag or purse leaving plenty of room to spare. It can even fit into the pockets of some pants. Available in a variety of colors and styles, it is affordable and necessary for anyone who might find themselves in a rainy situation.
