At the risk of sounding corny, traveling isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. From catching red-eyes across the world to spending weeks on end planning their fifth trip of a lifetime, these endlessly wandering souls are seemingly immune to jet-lag and love waking up in a new city. They eat, sleep, and breathe adventure, and will gladly splurge on a plane ticket if it means crossing a new destination off their bucket list.

We love them for their passionate spirit and curious nature, and they have an endless appreciation for gifts that enhance their desire to explore the world. While the globe trotters on our holiday shopping lists may plan a vacation over the holiday break, we’re prepping their gifts in advance. Ahead, find 12 gifts for the frequent flier, as curated by Havenly lead designer and fellow jet-setter Brady Burke.

Gifts For travelers
  1. Merino Travel Kit ($169): This is the perfect accessory for long flights, with a chic twist. It comes with an eye mask, blanket, and carrying case all crafted from extra-cozy merino wool.
  2. Leather Wrap Journal ($36): A journal is the best travel companion there is, and we love this leather-wrapped Anthro find!
  3. Morocco Framed Art Print ($89): We can’t always travel to our dream destinations, but we can frame them. The jet setter on your list will cherish this snapshot of iconic Moroccan architecture. 
  4. World Traveler Wall Calendar ($26): No one appreciates travel-inspired home goods quite like someone who’s visited half the globe. This calendar from Rifle Paper Co. is as beautiful as it is practical.

  8. Leather Passport Cover ($79): Travel in style and keep your passport safe with a chic and colorful leather holder.
  9. Rattan Frame ($24): When not gallivanting in other cities, every jet setter needs a timeless frame to display their favorite photos at home. Because memories are the best part of traveling.
  10. Toiletry And Duffle Bag ($149): This is the perfect weekender and toiletry bag fit for trains, planes, and automobiles. Plus, you can’t go wrong with the muted tan color.
  11. Portable Speaker ($249): Bring the tunes wherever you go with this portable bluetooth speaker. It’s also waterproof, so it’s beach, hike, and pool-friendly. 
  12. Great Escapes Italy ($66): Part of the fun of traveling is dreaming about past and future trips. Whether they’ve already frequented Italy or are longing to go, this dreamy coffee table book contains seriously jaw-dropping photos they’ll absolutely appreciate.

And of course, you can never go wrong with gifting design magic. Give them a gift card for a Havenly design package, and invite them to a fun and personalized online experience as they enjoy a room glow-up.
