    1. A desk calendar that might just inspire them to book a few more vacations in 2020. Vacation days are meant to be used...

    2. A jewelry travel case with room for necklaces, earrings, and rings so they don't all end up in a tangled mess that takes about 1.5 hours to undo.

    3. A savings bank that (sadly) doesn't come with money inside...but it is a cute way to save up for their next grand adventure.

    4. A pendant necklace to help them find their way (in life and maybe when they're exploring a new place they've never been before).

    5. A beautiful book that showcases places that evoke different emotions (from awe to passion to serenity).

    6. An On The Fly kit that's totally TSA-approved, so they can feel like their favorite celeb who LOVES to post photos putting on face (and eye) masks during their first-class flight because they are def on to something when it comes to skincare.

    7. A whiskey decanter to artfully display that their alcohol tastes are out of this world.

    8. An art print that may encourage a quick trip across the country.

    9. A scratch-off world map so they can keep track of all the places they've been — but also see how many more they have to go!

    10. A map glass so they can remember their favorite city fondly (or just the city that's number one on their bucket list right now).

    11. A homesick candle to help get a ~scent~ of what other countries or states smell like.

    12. A commuter clutch with space for a phone, headphones, and wallet so all they have to do is clutch this and display its beauty to the world.

    13. A coffee table book your hiking-obsessed friend will love. It features well-known routes with maps, practical tips, and some ahh-mazing photos (they will probably want to try and recreate when they hike).

    14. A beautiful skyline ring that'll give them a reason to talk about their favorite trip to Paris when someone compliments the ring and asks about it.

    15. A color-changing mug that may not show them a whole new world, but will open their eyes to the world in front of them...once they have their morning coffee, that is.

    16. A BAGGU packable backpack they'll be thankful to have when they buy too many souvenirs (and gifts for you, probably) and need a place to store them on the way home.

    17. A coloring book that will take them around the world in 80 days...oh wait, sorry, in 50 pages.

    18. A travel wallet so beautiful, they'll probably end up using it for their everyday life because this isn't meant to sit in a closet waiting to be taken on an adventure. Every day is an adventure with this beauty.

    19. A fun book to help start their bucket list now because life is short and we might as well enjoy it, whether that means bird watching in Kenya or learning a new language.

    20. A passport holder you can customize to make the gift even more personal.

    21. A travel journal filled with lists they can fill out about past travels and also brainstorm about where to go next.

    22. An enamel pin they can display on a bag to show everyone that they're not here for a long time, but a good time.

    23. A cashmere cable wrap to keep them warm on a freezing airplane, or just a freezing office if they can't book a trip quite yet.

    24. A cross-stitch world map for the travel *and* craft enthusiast who wants to show off where exactly they've had a ~stitching~ good time.

    25. A Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask made with vitamins, ceramides, antioxidants, and exfoliating extracts to give their skin an extra dose of hydration whether they just got off a red eye or walked home from work in the cold.

    26. A book that will make them feel like they've seen the world even if they haven't left the country (I get it, traveling is expensive).

    27. A pair of earrings that are anything but ~plane~ and simple and can be worn while traveling or on just an average day at home.

    28. A notepad for a forgetful person (or an extra organized one, tbh) to make sure they are fully packed before they leave.

    29. A cozy sweatshirt that will tell people what's on their agenda: getting out there.

    30. A magnetic map wall hanging they can hang any ticket stubs or photos from their travels on for a fun piece of personalized decor.

    31. An airplane bottle opener to help a good night out ~take flight~.

    32. A Dagne Dover duffle bag made out of neoprene and mesh for a super soft bag they'll be able to fit SO much stuff in that they'll never fly without it again.

    33. A small but might compass necklace to help guide them on their journey — wherever that journey is.

    34. A set of travel cards for making a trip anything but ordinary: When they want to spice things up, all they have to do is pick a card and complete the task for an unexpected turn in their travels!

    35. A doodle world map pillowcase because you're never too young to start fostering a sense of wanderlust.

    36. And a beautiful wooden sign stating what they have a case of.

    That feeling when you open a gift that's so perfect for you:
