If you’re still looking for that perfect travel gift, look no further – because we’ve checked this list twice.
Here are 12 of the best gifts for study abroad students and travelers in 2019:
1. Action Cameras
Waterproof, versatile cameras are fantastic for documenting all kinds of adventures. For 2019, the new and improved GoPro Hero 7 is a fan-favorite action camera and a popular gift for travelers.
2. Airbnb Gift Cards
Give the gift of adventure this holiday! Airbnb gift cards are amazing stocking stuffers for study abroad students and all travelers on a budget.
3. Bestselling Travel Books
What’s better to read on a plane than a top-notch travel book? Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2019 is one option to consider. This bestselling book lays out some of the finest locations and attractions to visit around the world.
4. Comfortable Travel Pillows
A comfy travel pillow is key. A new product worth checking out this year is the Trtl Travel Pillow, which has a unique internal support system that makes for relaxing on-the-go naps.
5. Durable Carry-On Backpacks
Carry-on backpacks reduce baggage claim and overhead storage frustration. We’d suggest taking a look at Osprey backpacks. Built for travelers, they’re great substitutes for duffel bags.
6. International Power Adapters
Make sure your loved one’s ready to re-charge once they land by gifting them an international power adapter. We’d recommend looking at some of Amazon’s best ranked adapters.
7. Packing Cubes
8. Passport Holders
The last thing an international traveler wants to lose is their passport. One fantastic gift idea this year is the “Adventure Port” Passport Holder from Bed Bath & Beyond – which, for an added bonus, includes a portable phone charger.
9. Scratch Off Maps
A scratch off map is an exciting way to plan an adventure and record it afterwards. Some come in different sizes, too, like this fun map by Maps International.
10. Soothing Sleep Masks
Sleep masks help minimize jet lag and maximize energy for exploring. In other words, they’re awesome travel gifts. One brand with great reviews this year is the Alaskan Bear Sleep Mask – and it’s less than $10.
11. Travel Journals
Travel journals help keep all those once-in-a-lifetime memories fresh. There are tons of styles to choose from out there – like, for example, this cute and organized Adventure Log.
12. Waterproof Phone Cases
Every traveler will breathe a sigh of relief after unwrapping a waterproof phone case. LifeProof is one brand that has a trusted reputation for their reliable, waterproof cases.
