Last Minute Travel Gift Ideas!

Can you believe Christmas is just a few weeks away?! Shopping can be really fun, but also stressful if you’re stuck on what to buy. If you’re looking for last-minute gifts for the traveler in your life, I’ve done all the leg work and complied a list for you – and all of these items will still arrive in time for Christmas!

Consider a gift card to Blurb Books. They allow you to create custom photo books, perfect for showing off that amazing trip! Try a coffee table book, here I share my review of Blurb. Or if photo books aren’t the right direction, why not give them a gift from Frame Bridge? Frame Bridge custom frames photos. Imagine how nice a gallery wall of your friends safari would look hanging in their living room!

Paul travels for work regularly and he is a firm believer in having an airline lounge pass. We are members of American Airlines Admirals Club and love the benefits! Free food & drinks, a quiet & comfortable seating area, and bonus – if you’re having flight issues, their customer concierge team will pull all the strings to get you on your way. Most clubs are based on a yearly membership and allow two additional guests at no charge.

I recently bought the Catalina Deluxe Tote from Lo & Sons and it is my all-time favorite hand-luggage bag. At some point I will share a review on the bag, but just know, it checks all the boxes! And my favorite feature is the slip pocket so it can be attached to luggage without falling off.

Looking for something more polished? Away Travel offers a duffle bag and two different sized backpacks – all three also have a luggage slip pocket. The backpacks have a padded space for a laptop, too! You can’t go wrong with their luggage, which I have reviewed here.

And lastly, I think one of those most fun gifts you can give anyone on your list, is an DNA kit. I’ve used both 23 and Me and Ancestry’s DNA kits and I highly recommend both. Around the holidays both companies often offer deals and 23 and Me is also available at Target. The user simply spits (ew!) into the provided tube and sends it back to the company in the pre-paid box. In about 6-8 weeks, results will be available. Who knows, maybe they’ll discover a new heritage and embark on an ancestral journey!

I also shared a specific gift guide for herand a gift guide for him.

Do you have any travel-enthusiasts on your list to shop for (or are YOU the travel addict)?
