Camera Tripod

Most travelers enjoy taking photos of their travels. It serves as a reminder of their endless adventures. Present to them a camera tripod to assist with their travels, especially if they travel alone. Let us be honest, not everyone is a good photographer. Either relying on a stranger to take your photo can end up being a flop, or you are just too shy to let someone take a photo of you. Though make sure to determine what kind of camera do they use to determine what kind of tripod to purchase,

Travel Journal

A simple gift, but a noteworthy one. If your friend who enjoys traveling always keeps a tab of their travels, then they will love a travel journal. Make sure to get them a handy one, which they can easily pick up to write their immediate experience. If they enjoy scribbling or make scrapbooks, pick a travel journal composed of blank pages to give space for his drawings and photos. But if otherwise, you can pick any travel journal that will suit their likings.

Travel Books (or Audio Books)

If your traveler friend enjoys books, then one of the best gifts you can give them is travel books (or Audio Books, whatever works for them). Try to find the travel books that focus on a specific region or state that your friend had been thinking of visiting soon. Or, find a book about how to effectively maximize your time in traveling a certain place. Just make sure that it is something that would perk his interest.


It is one of the unusual gifts you can give to anyone, but surely an awesome gift to a very adventurous traveler. LifeStraw is used to filter any water into drinking water. This works well for survival or just for camping. Do not be afraid as LifeStraw is being sold at a reasonable rate.

Deciding what to give to a friend who loves to travel could quite be complicated. However, sometimes we just need to focus on these simple details to learn that the best gifts we can give them are convenience and memory. But these gifts mean nothing if we give it to them with an ill heart. So make sure when you reach their gifts to them, you are 100 percent giving it out of love. Because nothing shouts more gift than the love of giving.
