16 Gifts for Grads Who Love to Travel
But don’t let us ruin the moment — graduating from college (or high school) is one of the proudest and most exciting events in a person’s life, and should be celebrated to the fullest.
Chances are you probably know someone who is about to embark on the next chapter of his or her life. And while it's common among young people to take some time off before that next chapter and travel the globe, most travel is still put on hold. It might be some time before your loved one can embark on the post-grad trip of their dreams, but that doesn't mean you can't gift them the supplies they'll eventually need for their trip (or items they can enjoy at home in the meantime).
Here, we rounded up 16 unique gifts for graduates who can't wait to start traveling again.
