Whether you’re buying a gift for someone going travelling, or looking for a travel inspired gift for someone’s home, there’s a huge choice available on the market.

It can make present buying difficult, and I know that I always find it hard when I’m asked what I want for my birthday or Christmas! So I’ve picked out some of the best gifts for travel fans, to help you in your present buying quest.

World Map Wall Mural

If you’re buying for a friend who love to plan their next trip, this world map mural from Wallsauce is ideal. It’s really easy to order as you just have to enter the dimensions of the wall where you’ll be displaying the mural, then crop the image to fit and pick the material.

It comes in a range of different designs including current and antique world maps, city maps and some more artistic designs like the one above. Installing the world map mural is pretty straightforward, although it does take a couple of people. So you might need to give your friend a hand when the time comes!

Land Mass Travel Tracker Map

Or for a more portable option, this Land Mass Travel Tracker Map* could be the perfect gift. This high quality foiled map has a detailed map of the world as well as the flag of each country. It even includes outlines of each US state, so you can scratch off each one as you visit. This would be a perfect gift for someone who is planning a gap year or major trip around the world.

National Geographic Executive Brass Edge Globe

A globe would be a gorgeous gift for a travel fan, and John Lewis has a wide range of globes* to suit every taste and pocket. I particularly like this National Geographic Executive Globe*. It has a antique style finish with a brass coated metal arc, and is also illuminated for easy viewing. It would look very stylish in any travel lover’s home office or study.

Tree of Life Leather Journal

Although many travel fans record their journeys online, travel journalling is still very popular. So this Leather Journal Tree of Life* would be a lovely gift for anyone who has a major journey ahead of them. It has 120 pages (240 counting both sides!) of heavy weight hand-crafted cream coloured paper, and the cover is made from soft Water Buffalo leather. Each journal is unique, making it a very thoughtful and personal gift. And if you’re buying for someone who doesn’t like leather, this vegan PU travel journal* is a great alternative.

Aspinal of London Leather Passport Cover

Or for a touch of luxury, why not treat your travelling friend to an Aspinal Leather Passport Cover*. It’s made of textured leather with ‘PASSPORT’ embossed on the front and a useful pocket inside. The cover comes in five different colours. And for a non-leather option, why not take a look at this Busy B Adventure Travel Wallet*.

Canon Powershot G7X II

And if you’re really looking to splurge on a travel-inspired gift, then the Canon G7X II is perfect. It takes amazing photos and is perfect for filming video as well – ideal if you’re buying for a travel blogger or vlogger! I use this camera for all of my photos and videos, and it’s so small that it easily fits into a pocket or bag. Click here to check current pricing*
