Perfect present picks for your favorite jet-setters.
Share has become a go-to word for travelers. We’ve always shared our vacation photos, videos, and stories, but we’re also increasingly sharing our homes, our cars, and our tables, thanks to companies like Airbnb and Uber. Human connection is often one of the most rewarding experiences of being in a new place when you find just as much warmth with a stranger as you have with your loved ones at home.
Our favorite gifts help capture those memories, inspire adventures, and make life on the road easier and more enjoyable. Some gifts will encourage travelers to get creative in commemorating their trips. Polaroid’s new touchscreen camera, for instance, combines the artsy fun of phone filters with the gratification of instant prints. And Artifact Uprising’s wooden memory box creates a space to save travel mementos.
Some of the items that mean the most are the ones that help the wider world share in our good fortune. Give a lightweight camping hammock, and you’ll also be supporting malaria treatments in Africa; a handmade leather passport that keeps women artisans in Ethiopia in business; or a cool graphic tee that supports programs to conserve and promote U.S. National Parks.
Whether it’s a gift for a holiday or a special occasion, these 30 ideas will make meaningful presents for your fellow world wanderers.
